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.
