You may remember that back in 2013, the lead investigator for Joe Arpaio’s still-ongoing birther “cold case posse” promised that they were soon going to release some “universe-shattering” information that would, of course, prove to the world that President Obama really is a Kenyan-born Muslim Marxist antichrist car salesman, or something. Almost two years later, still no bombshell. The Worldnetdaily asks why:
Reached by telephone, Zullo told WND in an interview his Cold Case Posse team commissioned by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office must resolve three legal issues before the new evidence can be revealed regarding the validity of the document posted online by the White House in 2011 as Obama’s birth certificate and a subsequent investigation of its origin.
“We’ve cleared two, and the last one is problematic,” Zullo said of the legal hurdles.
“If we can’t clear it, it may preclude this information from ever reaching the light of day. It may prevent me from ever disclosing what this is. But it does not mean we are not cultivating new evidence.”Zullo explained that when he said in 2013 he was preparing to release the information, he anticipated “we were going to have these answers within weeks.”
“As this was progressing, the legal issues started coming up, and it’s just put everything on hold,” he said.
WND, of course, accepts that vague answer completely. It all reminds me of Glenn Beck’s M.O. of repeatedly promising some huge revelation that is going to shake the world to the core. Then nothing happens and it all disappears down the memory hole. But the announcement of the impending revelation is all that is really needed. The denizens of the right wing fever swamps will take it as gospel truth even if they don’t know what it is and blame the alleged suppression of the non-existent evidence on dark forces and conspiracies.
