The discovery of Obama’s born-in-Kenya biography at the New York literary agency Dystel & Goderich for 16 years confirmed that there is a legitimate question about Obama’s eligibility and people wanting answers to that question cannot be dismissed as “birthers.”
It seems like virtually every "birther thread" troll would keep repeating that there is no evidence that he ever told anyone he was born in Kenya. I would post several articles where people were reporting him as having been born in Kenya, but they would always brush them away as not being proof of anything, but now that his Dystel and Goderich bio, these people have all pretty much shut up on this point. Yes, Obama DID lead people to believe he was born in Kenya.
I personally do not think there is any reasonable evidence indicating he was born in Kenya, and I think it is far more likely that he was born in Hawaii than Kenya. However, I regard it as quite probable that he was born in Canada. That is where Stanley Ann's Aunt Eleanor Birkebeile Dunham was living at the time, and it makes perfect sense that a girl with an embarrassing pregnancy would be sent to live with a female relative.
I think Obama Sr's INS papers indicated that their plan was to give him up for adoption. Stanley Ann was supposed to come back sans baby, but I suspect she ran into trouble when she found out that nobody was likely to want a half black baby in 1961.
