Obama’s ‘birth hospital’: Letter for real
July 16, 2009: After days of sustained silence, the Honolulu hospital that trumpeted – then later concealed – a letter allegedly written by President Obama in which he ostensibly declares his birth at the facility finally claimed the letter is, in fact, real.
WND obtained exclusive images of what the Kapi’olani Medical Center for Women and Children says is the original White House correspondence, dated Jan. 24, 2009, just four days after the inauguration of the new commander in chief.
“As a beneficiary of the excellence of the Kapi’olani Medical Center – the place of my birth – I am pleased to add my voice to your chorus of supporters,” Obama purportedly wrote.
To date, the White House has still never affirmed the authenticity of the letter nor its contents.
WND’s foreign relations
July 16, 2002: A story from the official news agency of the Beijing government charged the Western news media have been painting “a sinister picture of China,” emphasizing its threat to peace.
Chief among the screed’s complaints was a story appearing three days earlier in WND.
“Yes,” wrote editor Joseph Farah, “WorldNetDaily, an upstart, independent online news source dwarfed in budget and resources by all the other press institutions cited by the report, is making an impact – an impact even felt across the globe.
“The totalitarian government of China, ruling over 1.2 billion subjects, considers WorldNetDaily its most severe – and effective – critic in the Western media. For that I am proud.”
