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.
I f McCain does not jump all over this and the Iranians tonite he will lose the election.
Why do I feel that Odinga will be Barry’s minister of enforcement in the coming caliphate ?
I find the timing of this thuggery ...suspicious
Hopefully Corsi had a backup plan
How lame can you get, picking the guy up on “immigration charges”.
“I’m shocked, shocked that your papers aren’t in order!”
WHERE IS MATT DRUDGE ON THIS??? HIS SIGHT HAS NOT YET BEEN UPDATED YET TODAY. HE IS SLEEPING OR IN THE TANK LIKE THE REST OF THE MSM.
I also noticed he removed the Sarah story where she calls obambi and wright connection appalling... WHATEVER.
SITE EVEN... =)
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
This is the Drudge leading story.
Suspect Corsi planned this detention as a method to get attention.
This got the story front and center.IT may be the backup plan.
He is getting to close to something.........
It is the main story right now.
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
Let's get Ben Stein's take on this story.
A view of things to come ?
go back to Drudge....it’s there
Against the law to “lie” about some candidates apparently — kinda like Missouri.
it wasn’t when I wrote my msg... glad he finally woke up...
prayers for Corsi
Is your F5 key busted?
It came very close to working for algore.
Obama cover-up bump!! Time to get conservative Congressmen and the State Department involved ASAP!!
Wow! The rain is really falling on Obama’s parade.
Senator Barack Obama in Kenya > Obama and Odinga: The True Story -
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.
I posted the story at FR at 9:22 from Drudge’s site.
McCain should ask Obama to have "your family, which runs Kenya" to release Corsi.
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.
then I was sleeping... but it still was late getting on drudge site. I was lead on foxnews.com for some time..
Correction—the two photos are both AP.
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???
What a ballsy and beautifully executed move, a real man !!
I wonder what’s going on with this?
I wonder how Mccain can use this...
because of Obama’s kinfolks and friends in Kenya it is no longer safe for any american to travel there if they oppose Obama, the Messiah......Uganda, South Africa and Rhodesia to follow suit soon”
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.
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. Lets 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.
and the McC/Sarah campaign at:
Be sure to add your name and town and email - or they won’t read them.
IMPORTANT when emailing. they wont 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
Lets 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.
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)
