WND senior investigative reporter Jerome Corsi, who recently returned from a trip to Kenya with revelations about Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama’s participation in a foreign nation’s internal politics, now has been dispatched to Hawaii to uncover the truth of the senator’s place of birth.
The issue has been raised multiple times during the 2008 presidential campaign,
with a number of court cases already launched that demand documentation about Obama’s birth place. One prominent Pennsylvania Democrat, Philip Berg, has alleged that Obama was born not in Hawaii but in Kenya.
Corsi plans to be in Hawaii for several days to review the evidence and records in the dispute.
He was able to travel even though a chronic health condition landed him on his back following his Kenya trip, especially after he was detained by armed Kenyan soldiers and immigration officials for most of the last day he was in Nairobi, which prevented him from holding a news conference to discuss his discoveries there.
Corsi said he is working with medications that have partially relieved the pain, and he’s continuing his effort to discover the truth.
Corsi reported that when he was in Kenya he was told that Obama actually was born not in Honolulu but in Mombosa, on the Kenyan coast. He also said he was told by government officials there that his records were sealed and nothing could be released.
Sen. Barack Obama with Raila Odinga
While in Nairobi, Corsi obtained documentation linking Obama to the nation’s prime minister, Raila Odinga, who was appointed to the position to stop a wave of violence by Muslim supporters.
Corsi went at the invitation of Christian missionaries who contend the rise of Islam in the African nation has been spurred by an agreement Odinga signed with Muslim leaders in an effort to win the presidency last December. Odinga lost but now shares power with the Kenyan president to appease Islamic leaders.
Corsi’s highly critical book examining Obama’s career, “The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality,” remains on the New York Times best-seller list after its publication Aug. 1. The book was No. 1 on the list for four straight weeks after its launch.
In a chapter of “The Obama Nation” titled “Kenya, Odinga, Communism, and Islam,” Corsi says Obama supported the candidacy of Odinga, a Luo tribesman like Obama’s father, in the 2007 Kenyan presidential election, opposing current president Mwai Kibaki, a member of Kenya’s largest tribe, the Kikuyu.
Corsi revealed that Obama not only campaigned for Odinga but raised almost $1 million during the run-up to that nation’s 2007 presidential election. Corsi also uncovered Odinga’s written agreement with Muslim leaders stipulating that if they delivered him the Muslim vote, Odinga would, if elected, change the constitution to declare Islamic law as the ruling authority in Muslim-dominated regions, protect terrorists and muzzle Christian evangelism.
Odinga was named prime minister in Kenya after his campaign called for protests of an election he lost by more than 200,000 votes to incumbent Mwai Kibaki. The resulting violence by marauding Muslim mobs left 1,000 people dead, hundreds of thousands displaced from their homes and 800 Christian churches damaged or destroyed. No Islamic mosques were damaged, however.
Among the worst attacks occurred when several dozen women and children sought refuge in a Christian church which mobs burned down on top of them.
