Uncertified documents are not admissible.
If they are not admissible, then the 
judicial record cannot support a conclusion
that the oath was taken, because such a
conclusion assumes facts not in evidence.
Therefore, no oath was taken.  FOIA's
judicial remedies are spelled out by 
Congress:  enforce production of documents
improperly withheld, and enjoin the improper
withholding of documents properly requested.
FOIA requests for credentials required by
the Constitution are Petitions to Government
for redress of grievances;  as such, they
warrant special constitutional protection,
under the authority of the Petition Clause.
Read the Federal Rules of Evidence, for
more criteria governing the admissibility
of uncertified documents.
