Kenya detains Corsi during Obama probe Officials scuttle WND reporter's news
WND ^ | Oct. 7, 2008

Posted on 10/07/2008 6:22:13 AM PDT by COUNTrecount

NAIROBI, Kenya – The government of Kenya is holding WND senior staff reporter Jerome Corsi in custody at immigration headquarters after police picked him up at his hotel just prior to a scheduled news conference in which he planned to announce the findings of his investigation into Barack Obama's connections in the country.

Corsi, the author of the No. 1 best-selling book "The Obama Nation," was picked up by authorities at his hotel at 9:45 a.m. and is being detained at Nyayo House, the provincial headquarters for Nairobi.

"Just as we were about to start the 10 a.m. press conference at the Grand Regency Hotel in Nairobi, Kenyan immigration approached us and detained us. Tim Bueler, my publicist, and I are now in the immigration offices, with our passports taken. The immigration officer told the press, 'There is no problem, and Dr. Corsi is a friend of Kenya.'"

Corsi had extensive meetings with top Kenyan officials upon his arrival. His visit and his activities during his stay have been well-known to authorities at the highest levels

Unless our State Dept gets involved, Corsi will be released one day after election day.

McCain should bring this up tonight.

It’s unfortunate that Corsi did not start his press conference an hour earlier than announced to the Kenyan government

Who knows what they may now have “discovered” in his luggage or hotel room

I doubt he would have scheduled a press conference to announce he found nothing...

hopefully Obama’s real birth certificate or a passport record is on the way across the Med/Atlantic as we speak

Corsi was to report Odinga's 2007 presidential campaign strategy called for exploiting anti-Kikuyu tribal sentiments, claiming victory and charging voter fraud even if the campaign knew the election had been legitimately lost. Odinga, Corsi said, also was willing to fan the flames of ethnic tribal tensions and use violence as a last resort by calling for mass action that led to the destruction of properties, injuries, loss of life and the displacement of over 500,000 Kenyans. The purpose was to compel the Electoral Commission of Kenya to declare him the winner or enable him to declare himself the winner by force.

A view of things to come ?

I don’t think Corsi planned this. He was talking to Quinn and Rose this morning while this was happening and I think he sounded quite shook up.

Get the podcast of the show later today and listen. It’s free on WHLO Akron/Canton - http://www.640whlo.com/main.html -or- subscribe (worth it!) on http://warroom.com/

McCain should ask Obama to have "your family, which runs Kenya" to release Corsi.

I don’t think Corsi planned this.

AP and al Reuters have handy photos of Corsi walking the hall of the Immigration Dept. prior to being taken to the airport for deportation.

Corsi got lucky as this is How Odinga normally treats his guests......


Angry Odinga supporters went on the rampage in Nairobi and across the country, looting and burning.

Time for the MSM to ask Obama about this, perhaps Fox will do it.

Will this be happening in the US if Obozo is president???

I suspect Corsi designed this trip to cause just such a problem.

What a ballsy and beautifully executed move, a real man !!

Thank you for the ping, GreyFoxx.

Prayers out for Corsi. There are worse places to be ‘detained’ in Africa, but bad things can happen there too. And this situation definitely stinks of 0bamanation.

Some may think his methods go too far, but I think he is one of the good guys and we need a thousand more like him.

Okay FREEPERS.
Time to ROLL. time to step up the plate and do our part to protect our freedoms.

So many keep saying: “Why doesn’t McCain....” while they sit nattering. It’s like expecting Gen. Petreaus to win the war without any troops behind him.

Corsi has handed us a GOLDEN EGG. WE have to take it and run with it today - right now while you’re on the keyboard.

Here’s the action for today:

FOX is stepping up to the plate and really exposing the demRATS and ‘bambi. Let’s keep FREEPING them info.
Remember the formula of the networks: The office people that screen the emails only pass them on when they get X-amount on a given subject.

So this is OUR part - WE the PEOPLE - in protecting our freedoms.

hannity@foxnews.com

oreilly@foxnews.com

Special@foxnews.com

ElRushbo@eibnet.com

ontherecord@foxnews.com

letter@charleskrauthammer.com

me@glennbeck.com

and the McC/Sarah campaign at:

info@McCainPalinVictory2008.com

Be sure to add your name and town and email - or they won’t read them.

IMPORTANT when emailing. they won’t read mass emails - SO,

put just one email add in the “to” line then click on BBC at the end of that line. a BCC line will open just above subject line. copy paste the rest of the addresses in there and each recipient will see ONLY their name - and in the subject line make reference to CORSI OBAMA

Let’s make it happen. This is our part in protecting our freedoms = WE THE PEOPLE - we act now or get ready for Jack Boots and Brown Shirts...Obama already has his personal police force plans ready

copy the email addresses for use for the rest of the campaign

Here’s the info to email - keep it simple.

http://africanpress.wordpress.com/2008/08/10/senator-barack-obama-in-kenya-obama-and-odinga-the-true-story/

The photo with the story of a SITTING U. S. Senator - only 2 years ago - campaigning with a bullhorn for a butchering dictator, Odinga (who claims Obama is his cousin) just 2 years ago - not when he was 8. ONE PHOTO IS WORTH.

and he paid for the trip to Kenya with our tax monies.

GO FOR IT, FReepers! while we’re still FREE (read my tagline)
