@jtrebowski- ok, so no proof I'm wrong. To clarify, being born in this country gives you citizenship, and the possibility of dual-citizenship may also be extended by the country your parents are from, NEITHER of these are equivalent to being a natural born citizen as is required by the constitution. As it stands with the proof in his birth certificate, he is an American citizen , but not a natural born citizen.(depending on his time at school in Asia as Barry Soetoro, he might not even be a citizen... another issue all together which hasn`t been cleared up due to a lack of paperwork provided)

The layering was explained on the 1st or 2nd page of this thread.
It's routine for scanning paper documents into a computer-based system because if you don`t do it that way all you have are a lot of pictures that can`t be searched by humans or computers, i.e. are useless, or you have to manually input all the data on every document by hand into a database and use that instead.
Layering is routine, a side-effect of the combination of scanning and OCR to convert the printed data into a machine-readable form.
