Jerome Corsi, author of the anti-Obama book titled The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality was deported back to America not because of a hitch in his travel documents as reported earlier but due to the nature of his mission in the country.
According to Foreign affairs minister Moses Wetangula, Corsi displayed inconsistent conduct with the expected norms of good behaviour in the country.
Corsi was on Tuesday night deported back to America after he attempted to launch the book blasting White House hopeful Barrack Obama at a Nairobi hotel.
The initial explanation offered by the authorities for his deportation was that his travel documents were not in order.
But it emerged on Wednesday that his deportation squarely lay on his suspect intentions and mission in the country, the launch of an anti-Obama book.
According to Wetangula, Corsi who was in the country on a tourist visa was ordered to leave the country by the immigration department.
Corsi's scheduled launch of the book at the Laico hotel failed to kick off after a section of Kenyans demonstrated against it leading to his detention by security officials.
In the book, Corsi ridicules Prime Minister Raila Odinga accusing him of supporting the agenda of radical Muslims.
He had also announced he would expose alleged connections to certain sectoral groups in Kenya and subsequent plots to be executed in Kenya Should Obama win the US election.
Meanwhile the government has offered to train between six to ten thousand Somali nationals as military officers.
Foreign affairs minister Moses Wetangula says the move by Kenya will help Somalia's defense system as the interim government's term comes to an end in nine month's time.
Wetangula firmly refuted latest claims by British Broadcasting Corporation that the military consignment in the hijacked Ukrainian ship was destined for Sudan terming the allegations speculative.
He said the initials GOSS cited by the BBC to mean Government of Southern Sudan were actually a Department of Defense code for General Ordinance Supplies and Security.
What he had no machete.
Yep, and I tried to say that on a previous post on my blog and FR, and got a rude letter from anonumous on the blog...
one so bad I didn’t publish it...lol
Corsi got the best book promo he could have wished for! I tell ya this guy is smart!
Is the book coming out? We need it Number One on Election day......
Nothing is stopping Corsi from holding a press conference here in the U.S.
ROFLMTO...that’s the truth...that Odinga bunch wouldn’t know normal if it ran over them.
Corsi will be H&C on Monday describing the relationship between Obama and the Kenyan guy. (forgot his name)
I hope they don’t bump him off.
they took all his papers, and I guarantee when he gets his “stuff” back together, it will be the October Surprise..lol
MUST SEE VIDEO OF OBAMA IN KENYA CAMPAIGNING FOR ODINGA!!!
2 min version:
“Barack Obama and Raila Odinga — Did the Illinois senator violate the Logan Act in campaigning for his ‘genocidist’ cousin’s bid for the Kenyan presidency?”
8 minute version:
“Barack Obama & Raila Odinga”
Odinga-Obama-Fascism at its finest.
It’s truly amazing that this story has made no newspapapers-that I know of. If this were a dem that had written about McCain, it would be all over for days. This is a news story, but no one carries it. Thank goodness for Hannity.
Corsi is certainly smart enough to have his information spread around the world in different hands. The Odinga connection is very damning to Obama, as it will show Obama violated the Logan Act.
I think that we should return the favor and deport every Kenyian(sp?) and their offsping from our shores. I don’t really see where they, as a whole, have been much of a contributing factor here.
Why is the United States government keeping so quiet?
State Dept sprung him is what I read. Corsi was on a tourist visa when he should have had a work permit of some sort. Maybe he refused to pay the “fees” for one !
