Why would the African Press International have it in for Obama? I thought they revered him?

Also, couldn't team Obama buy their way out of it with their millions?

Corsi's Kenyan findings are that Obama himself advised his uncle Odinga during and especially after the Kenyan election that the best way to gain power and office was to play up tribal jealousies. Thus Kenyan politics becomes not abstract policy arguments, but tribal jealousy and warfare.

So while we thinks of politics and politicians in America as Americans, with labels of left or right, those labels being able to change by a person's free choice, in Kenya -- and in Africa generally -- politics is tribal, and one can not chose ones tribe, it is fixed by birth circumstance.

So why would folks at API chose to post something that puts Obama in a bad light -- true or not? It could be that some are allied with the tribe that is not that of Obama/Odinga, or it could be that they are idealists, and trying whole-heartedly to get beyond tribal politics to the politics of ideas and ideals.
