Skip to comments.Obama's grandfather tortured by the British? A fantasy (like most of the Presidentís own memoir)
Posted on 06/19/2012 7:11:19 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
A new biography of Barack Obama has established that his grandfather was not, as is related in the Presidents own memoir, detained by the British in Kenya and found that claims that he was tortured were a fabrication.
'Barack Obama: The Story' by David Maraniss catalogues dozens of instances in which Obama deviated significantly from the truth in his book 'Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance'. The 641-page book punctures the carefully-crafted narrative of Obamas life.
One of the enduring myths of Obamas ancestry is that his paternal grandfather Hussein Onyango Obama, who served as a cook in the British Army, was imprisoned in 1949 by the British for helping the anti-colonial Mau Mau rebels and held for several months.
Obamas step-grandmother Sarah, Onyango wife, who is still living, is quoted in the future Presidents memoir, as saying: One day, the white mans askaris came to take Onyango away, and he was placed in a detention camp.
But he had been in the camp for over six months, and when he returned to Alego he was very thin and dirty. He had difficulty walking, and his head was full of lice. He was so ashamed, he refused to enter his house or tell us what happened.

Supposedly, this is why the Kommie Kenyan sent OUR bust of Winston Churchill back to the Brits. The boy has a chip on his shoulder I guess.
Another c0mp0site mem0ry.
Reality is such a bourgeois concept, anyway.
Churchill has more American Blood than Obama
He had a real American mother, Jenny Jerome from Booklyn NY
The son of a b..... is a fantacide, like allot of politicians, they read to much science fiction, and believe in ideals instead of reality. These are the same complete idiots that get us in to major wars, and other stupid crap, with other countries. They never study actual history, or any history of human action!
And we’re supposed to believe this liar when he says he was born in HI? Are we that stupid?
There is also the inconvenient fact that the Mau Mau rebellion didn't break out till 1952, with increasing tension during 1951.
So grandpa Obama was highly talented. He managed to get arrested for involvement with a rebellion 2 or 3 years before it happened.
Which does not mean that Gramps or someone else in the family didn't tell this story or something similar. Sort of how by 1946 all Frenchmen were veterans of the Resistance.
Since so much about Obama is BS, what else is?
There stories are interesting, but what about the real meat; under what passport (known to not be US) did Obama travel to the Middle East in the 1990s, and why the strange SSINs?
What do you call a chip on one’s shoulder for something that never happened, though?
I hope Romney asks for the bust back!
Since the whole story was fabricated out of thin air, that “chip” on Zero’s shoulder MUST be pure bull$h!t...a type of “buffalo chip” as it were.
Fact Bump, very inconvenient for the msm, no facts allowed.
Sorry, what about Hawaii issuing 3 different versions of their official birth certificate. So what is the official one?????????????? First state government that I have ever seen that has no clue what their official document looks like, in 1961(or any other year), prior to say 1950.
Better still. Not only did he get arrested a few years before the Mau Mau rebellion even occured, he was probably the only non-Kikuyu in the the ranks of the Mau Mau. Once grandpa Obama knelt toward Mecca, the Mau Mau would have cut him up into little pieces. The Kikuyu were not fond of the Muslim slave raiders from the coast. I wonder if Kenya has any stolen valor laws in regards to the Mau Mau Rebellion. If so, Grandpa Obama would have a little legal trouble, if he is still alive.
when his lips move, he lies.
The truth doesn’t matter to Obama. It’s what he believes. He’s a made up person, the perfect Manchurian.
Look at what the Saudis are doing to bring down oil prices and protect their investment. Cook County doesn’t have a strong history of honorable politicians.
Lies are mother’s milk to them and Obama is their kindred.
Yep, the smoke can obscure the fire.
