Skip to comments.Govt defends Corsi's deportation
Posted on 10/09/2008 8:44:53 AM PDT by Bubba_Leroy
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 !
Hannity and Colmes will carry it, and I think Greta, John Gibson and Fox and Friends will pick it up also.
I could be wrong, though.
Rush will most certainly take this story to the airwaves!
One of points was Obama was soliciting money in U. S. for Odinga election, isn’t that illegal? or just a cap on amount?
I read an article a few days ago in a Kenya newspaper, where Odinga was complaining that the two leaders (Pres & Prime Minister) just wasn’t working and they needed a change. My thought was Odinga should resign, since Kofi Annan (UN) brokered deal to give the loser of election (Odinga) half the power by making him PM, and giving him half the cabinet posts...outrageous.
Bet this book does NOT wind up on the liberal American Librarian Ass.’s “Banned Book List”.
Probably won’t make it on the shelves of every library either. Even if it is donated.
He has a tell all at World Net Daily Friday, he has the name of the contact person in Obambi's office that is in direct contact with Odinga
I think a U.S. Senator attempting to influence an election around the world is not a small infraction. Obama needs to explain his actions, especially on the taxpayer’s nickel.
You don’t need a work permit in this world. Open borders. Haven’t you heard?
He’s just doing the investigative journalism that the locals are unwilling to do.
I want to see a YOUTUBE interview of Corsi after this.. The main stream media will NOT carry it.. maybe SEVERAL Youtube interviews.. of Corsi..
Hannity was touting Corsi would be on his show YESTERDAY and yet I never heard a single word anywhere. It was completely overlooked on Hannity & Colmes last night. Either someone is covering for Obama or they are really going to smack him with a huge October surprise.
The swift boat book had some juice because of the vets behind it putting up their word against John F’ng Kerry. This one doesn’t have any juice.
Rather than “attempting to influence” the Kenya elections, it was more like conspiring with Odinga to even plan a race war in case the election didn’t turn out to Odinga’s satisfaction. Sounds like the Democrat playbook, doesn’t it?
CROSS ACTION NEWS IS INTERVIEWING CORSI AT 3PM EASTERN TIME
Raila Odinga claims to be Obama’s first cousin, but no matter, Odinga is a violent radical who killed thousands in ethnic cleansing of Rift Valley before UN’s Kofi Annan went to give him half power in Kenya..it’s appalling that a bloody candidate can lose, and get power for his murderous rage...
Odinga claimed the Kenya’s were angry about election, but he did nothing to stop violence..it was his thugs, IMHO
Where do we find the radio channels that will hold that interview?? Or will Hannity put that on his FoxNews page???
Corsi came close to death, because if those two lawyers (noone knew who called them) hadn’t showed up, he could have been killed without much interest by news media...who got the whole report wrong, and only mentioned in passing on Fox “that Corsi had been detained and was deported, because of no working papers...both wrong”..and only once I believe...at which point I called and emailed several CHRISTIAN PRAYER GROUPS ACROSS THE NATION...Corsi was put on his origianal plane flight to London, with his publicist, after hours of a terrible ordeal, and his papers were fine..
Claims by Kenya were false and they tried to put him in deportation holding cell and they refused asking to be charged with crime...some informants he had paid a lot of bribes too...THAT’S ONE HELL OF A PROMO, and a dangerous one at that...not what he expected. Two great articles at www.WND.com about that trip.
He was on Hannity yesterday, the thing is he was still in london and unable to produce the documents until Monday. He is supposed to be on Hannity Monday.
It’s sad really, but we must acknowledge the fact that Senator Obamas former and current reationships with.. well it seems everbody he knows.. will not have any effect on his base. And since the MSM aint doing thier job, most middle fencers won’t even hear about it.
FNC tries to be fair, but how many people still on the rail about who to vote for, watch FNC?
I’d venture it’s less than a point.
What a doofus, trying to hold a news conference in that hell hole. He is very lucky he got out alive.
Now hold the friggin news conference here and hammer this dweeb Obozo.
Other than the fact he put his life in jeopardy, I’d say it was a brilliant move. It was done on purpose, he either gets to Kenya to tell the truth, or gets kicked out for wanting to. Either way, most likely he got the exact response he wanted. He wants for this episode of his experience there to be leaked to the Kenyan populous.
