In 1952, Churchill sent troops to Kenya, to quash a rebellion. It led to a civil war lasting at least two years. The Messiah’s daddy would have been a young boy then. The Kikiyu (forgive my spelling) were loyal to the British. O is Lao is something like that.
Good thing we don’t have a president with divided loyalties:)

(Obama and cabinet: Fool and the Gang)
Even more "allegations" to that Kenya connection, Churchill bust casts shadow over special relationship with the US
...........Mr Obama shows little evidence of the Anglophilia that led his predecessors to pepper speeches with quotations from Churchill. Instead, there have been suggestions that he has reason to disdain the former Prime Minister. In 1952 Churchill declared the Kenya emergency in the homeland of Mr Obamas father, sending in troops to crush the Mau Mau rebellion against colonial rule. Among the Kenyans who were detained without trial and allegedly tortured by the British was Hussein Onyango Obama, the Presidents grandfather...............
.............Shortly before Mr Obamas inauguration, the Jacob Epstein bronze is understood to have been removed and placed in storage by White House curators. Recent photographs show that a bust of Abraham Lincoln, one of the new Presidents heroes, has been moved to take the position once occupied by Churchill.
The bronze was lent to George Bush by Tony Blair in 2001 from the Government Art Collection for the duration of his presidency. It is now due to be returned.
Hmmmmmm. Whether any of that is true, Obama's return of the bust is an overt snub to our ally, especially after they asked him to please keep the bust.
