Proof Obama backed OdingaSet up direct Senate contact for Kenyan opposition leader
WorldNet Daily ^ | 10-10-2008 | Bob Unruh

Proof Obama backed Odinga Set up direct Senate contact for Kenyan opposition leader -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Posted: October 10, 2008 12:05 am Eastern By Bob Unruh © 2008 WorldNetDaily Sen. Barack Obama designated a personal aide as his direct contact for the 2007 Kenyan presidential campaign of Raila Odinga, who later was appointed prime minister after his election loss was followed by widespread, deadly violence that destroyed or damaged 800 Christian churches, according to e-mails obtained by WND senior staff writer Jerry Corsi during a trip to Kenya. Corsi attempted to release this and other information at a Tuesday press conference in Nairobi. The WND reporter and No. 1 New York Times bestselling author was detained by Kenya security officers as soon as he entered the hotel to make his presentation. He was held incommunicado and without food for the entire day before being permitted to board his regularly scheduled flight out of the country to London, where he is currently recuperating from the ordeal. As WND has reported, Obama openly campaigned for Odinga during the Illinois Democrat's 2006 Senate "fact-finding visit" to Kenya. Odinga called for protests over alleged voter fraud after losing the December 2007 general election. The resulting protest violence left an estimated 1,000 members of the dominant Kikuyu tribe in Kenya dead and an estimated 500,000 displaced from their homes. The links between Obama and Odinga were documented by copies of two e-mails obtained by Corsi during his meetings in Kenya with various government officials and others. The e-mails, apparently sent by Obama himself, referenced the senator's aide, Mark Lippert. The e-mails were provided to WND by an insider in Kenya who fled Odinga's Orange Democratic political party and requested anonymity because of the danger of retaliation.

That’s it? All this build up for an email to say ‘Contact Mark Lippert’... lol...

Good old “Rules for Radicals” kicks in, keep the opposition busy chasing rumors.

Why does Mark’s email have the word “Obama” in it? That’s kind of strange. That small piece of paper has “Obama” on it nine times.

What is already known about the Obama-Odinga connection is bad enough! The guy is a terrorist-hugging Marxist who encouraged his supporters to riot after he lost the election. Over a thousand people were killed. Some 800 Catholic churches were burned to the ground. He intimated the newly elected leader into making him the Prime Minister. Obama went over to Kenya and campaigned for this guy who claims that Obama is his cousin! Whatever Corsi has would just be icing on the cake.

From the website Atlas Shrugs, June 17, 2008:

Watch this video of the conflict in Kenya months back [see link below]. Odinga and Obama are Luo. Odinga and his American counterpart and strategist Obama both campaigned on this canard of "change". Obama campaigned for Odinga. Adam pointed out that Obama's been in Nairobi politicking more recently than he's been to Iraq. Why now does Obama pretend he doesn't know him?

Listen as the Luo calls itself the "Taliban" in the video. It's graphic, it's gruesome but it is who Obama supported. Watch the whole thing, particularly the Luos burning a church, raping women, and hacking a man to death -vid hat tip kasper

It looks like a 8 because this is a very poor probably scanned copy. You can barely make out the word December either. Look at the E’s in December, you can hardly tell what they are.
Also the copy posted here today may be the original and the copy here a few days back may be bad scanned copies.

All Electronic-mail are all alike in form. The only way this gets big is what is written. If the context says ‘Way to go Odinga your’re doing fine in the election!’ then it’s nothing. If there is some inside info in the emails that is damaging and hard to refute, then Corsi found something.

I left out the link to the Atlas Shrugs excerpt, so here it is:
http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2008/06/odinga-and-obam.html

Also from Atlas Shrugs:
http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/kenyas_killing_fields/index.html

"...this hasn't even gotten into the relationship between Obama and Raila Odinga, yet another politician who ran on the 'hope & change' theme while utilizing criminal ties, who would then stage a violent and bloody uprising when national elections didn't go his way. Somehow we don't hear much about the nightly phone calls between Sen. Obama and Raila Odinga these days..."

Kenya's first truly free and fair democratic election was in December 2002, won by Mwai Kibaki and a multi-ethnic coalition party NARC (National Rainbow Coalition). One of the leaders of that coalition was Raila Odinga.

Kibaki didn't give him positions in the new government that he felt were important enough, so Odinga formed an opposition party, ODM (Orange Democratic Movement, orange the symbol color of opposition).

When Raila Odinga lost the presidential election last week (12/27/2207) to Mwai Kibaki, he claimed the vote was rigged, whereupon his tribal followers went on murderous rampages such as in the town of Eldoret, where on New Years Day dozens of people were burned to death in a church set on fire.

Throughout Kenya, hundreds of people have been politically murdered in the last few days.

Kenya's 37 million people are divided up into over three dozen tribes and sub-tribes, but the two dominant ones are Kikuyu and Luo. Kenyan politics since independence in 1963 has essentially been a duke-out between them.

The father of Kenyan independence and president until 1978 was Jomo Kenyatta, a Kikuyu. His main political opponent was Oginga Odinga, known as "OO," a Luo and Raila's father.

While Kenyatta was pro-West and sided with America in the Cold War, OO [Oginga Odinga, Raila's father] was a Communist who was aided and supported by the Soviet Union.

That's why Raila went to school in East Germany (born in 1945, he graduated from Magdeburg University in 1970), and named his first-born son after Fidel Castro.

Thus it likely won't shock you to learn that Raila has now made a deal for support from the Soviets' successors as world-champion enemies of the West and democratic freedoms: Moslem fundamentalists.

The Evangelical Alliance of Kenya has posted on its website a photograph copy of a Memorandum of Understanding, dated and signed on August 29, 2007, between Raila Odinga and Shiekh Abdullah Abdi, chairman of the National Muslim Leaders Forum of Kenya.

It pledges the support of Kenyan Moslems for Raila's election. In return, as President of Kenya, Raila agrees to 14 actions, listed a) through n) on page two. Read them all, and be sure you're sitting down. Here's a sample:

b) Within 6 months re-write the Constitution of Kenya to recognize Shariah as the only true law sanctioned by the Holy Quran for Muslim declared regions.

c) With immediate effect dismiss the Commissioner of Police who has allowed himself to be used by heathens and Zionists to oppress the Kenyan Muslim community.

g) Within one year facilitate the establishment of a Shariah court in every Kenyan divisional headquarters. [Note: everywhere in Kenya, not just in "Muslim declared regions."]

Again, read all of them, for others are just as bad or worse.

It may also not surprise you that Raila is not Moslem himself, but claims to be a practicing Anglican. Only a minority of Luo are Moslem (most are Christian). Kenya on the whole is Christian, with 80% of Kenyans either Protestant or Roman Catholic, while only 10% are Moslem.

And here is the biggest non-surprise: Raila Odinga has, in his own words, a "close personal friendship" with Barrack Hussein Obama Junior.

When Obama went to Kenya in August of 2006, he was hosted by Raila and spoke in praise of him at rallies in Nairobi:

Based on the other postings, I’d have to say this email exchange business is grade-B bullsh*t. Corsi just did himself and the entire McCain-Palin campaign a huge disservice.

The Corsi fraud will be a top story “McCain backer caught forging Obama emails” or something along those lines. Mark my words.

You can’t change the fact Obama was openly campaigning for Odinga on a “Fact finding” junket on tax payer dime. There is video and photographic as well as eyewitness accounts.

I wish people would stop burning the message with the messenger.

I don’t know fi they are real or not, but for DAMN sure the Kenyan Government was concerned enough to shake down Corsi. That alone is saying something.

True, but that’s old news. It’s been known for quite some time—over a year—and has not got legs by itself. There’s no smoking gun and Corsi’s attempt to forge one, I fear, has really hurt the McCain campaign. It will force McCain to distance himself even further from attacking Obama’s associations. This is really, really bad.

Actually, I would correct this and my own statements. Upon closer reading, it is Unruh who is claiming that the bogus emails were sent to him from some dude who allegedly had to flee Kenya. That’s even worse, because Unruh is the news editor for WND, and it now calls into question every anti-Obama article they’ve published.

There is no smoking gun, but the fact remains that Obama did campaign for his cousin, it was on the taxpayers' dollar (right?), Odinga is an E. German educated socialist, he did sign an agreement with Muslims, and there were deadly riots when he lost because he claimed vote fraud. There does NOT need to be a smoking gun. Everyone I have shared this with who isn't a diehard leftist is shocked. I have changed a few votes. McCain shouldn't back off. The facts speak for themselves.

The problem is Corsi does not have anything.
Either Corsi got scammed by some Kenyans or Corsi is trying hard and is failing big time to create a story line for his next book.

If Corsi had something and if he was a true American he would have flown right back to the states and presented it very quickly to the media so that it was put out there to the American public. We are getting down to the wire and all this drama crap coming from Corsi is complete BS.

Now is not the time to be playing games with the American people. If Corsi has something I say cough it up and cough it up NOW.
