Skip to comments.WND's [Jerome] Corsi in Kenya to probe Obama ties

NAIROBI, Kenya WND author and staff writer Jerome Corsi has arrived in the Kenyan capital to investigate Sen. Barack Obama's ties to the prime minister, Raila Odinga, who was appointed to the position to stop a wave of violence by Muslim supporters.
Corsi came at the invitation of Christian missionaries who contend the rise of Islam in the African nation has been spurred by an agreement Odinga signed with Muslim leaders in an effort to win the presidency last December. Odinga lost but now shares power with the Kenyan president to appease Islamic leaders.
Corsi's highly critical book examining Obama's career, "The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality," remains on the New York Times best-seller list after its publication Aug. 1. The book was No. 1 on the list for four straight weeks after its launch.
Corsi plans to file daily dispatches from Kenya for the next week.
In a chapter of "The Obama Nation" titled "Kenya, Odinga, Communism, and Islam," Corsi says Obama supported the candidacy of Odinga, a Luo tribesman like Obama's father, in the 2007 Kenyan presidential election, opposing current president Mwai Kibaki, a member of Kenya's largest tribe, the Kikuyu.
WND previously reported a segment by Chicago's WBBM-TV that documented Obama attacking Kibaki with critical comments during a 2006 Senate "fact-finding trip" to Kenya.
The WBBM news team interviewed on camera Kenyan government spokesman Alfred Matua, who accused Obama of meddling inappropriately in Kenyan politics.
Matua said politely but pointedly, "I think Obama has to look at critically where he is receiving his advice from. Just because somebody somewhere wants to run for president, and he is using Senator Obama as his stooge, as his puppet, to be able to get where he wants to get."

Slip Obama’s brother a $20 for me and I’ll reimburse you when you get back. Seriuosly, I will.
Excellent Go Corsi!
It is criminal to let that sob get away with campaigning for the murderous Islam-backed Odinga!
Maybe he will find an Obama Kenya Birth Certificate?
This is interesting. Will be even more interesting to see the results.
Jerry in Kenya ping.
Can’t you just see the explorer hat?
Hope he has body armor and a couple of good bodyguards. Africa can be a rough place for people who ask sensitive questions.
I hope Corsi has a good security detail while in Kenya.
That’s what I was thinking!
Or passport records
You mean there is someone out there actually probing Communist Citizen Obama?
Not exactly a bright move anouncing Mr. Corsi’s itinerary. Best casing it, the Kenyan Government will stonewall records and access to protect their native son. Worst casing, Mr. Corsi will get himself “Mau-Mau’ed” Either way, WND turned this into a real fool’s errand.
I have a big problem with it. Corsi needs to get his butt back to the US so he can objectively moderate the next presidential debate.
Until we begin to get mad, this election is going to Obama. I can’t begin to tell you how mad I;m beginning to get as I watch the media try to steal this country.
When things got out of hand following the election, Obama called Odinga repeatedly, but Mwai Kibaki, the leader of the Government would not return his calls as he perceives Obama to be biased toward his Luo relative Odinga in the conflict. Obama is featured prominently in ODM campaign posters, slogans, and songs in Kenya, and the plaintive phrase A Luo will become President in America before a Luo will become President in Kenya is often heard.
Maybe he will find Obambie’s brother’s keeper.
I hope Corsi has some good bodyguards. He is dealing with murderers here.
