The Kenyan government has barred unapproved contacts between the media and President-elect Barack Obama's extended family.
Family members will be required to receive permission from the government before making any public statements about their famous relative, according to the Nairobi Star.

I did a search and didn’t see this posted. If I messed up and this is old news, sorry!

Got to forget this stuff and move on and fight Obama politically in other and more sane and efficient ways....

George Hussein Onyango Obama,
Senator Barack Obama's long lost
brother was tracked down living in
a hut on the outskirts of Nairobi
Senator Barack Obama's long lost brother has been tracked down for the first time living in a shanty town in Kenya, reports claimed

"No-one knows who I am", he told the magazine, before claiming: "I live here on less than a dollar a month."
I’m sure liberals will support this freedom of speech.
Thank you, NoGrayZone.
You didn’t mess up.
A similar article was posted with a different title which makes a search almost impossible.
This is an important article and needs to be repeated. I *thought* someone pinged me; after looking back through pings, here’s the old one, crosslinked for reference:
