Dr. Jerome Corsi made a recent trip to Kenya to investigate Obama's ties there. Odinga, who Obama accompanied during Odinga's 2007 campaign for President in Kenya, lost the election by a quarter million votes, but was aided by the high profile attention that 'the US Senator Obama brought to his campaign. He is linked to the Luo tribe which headed a rampage, after dissatisfaction with the election, who hunted down the KuKuiou (sp?) massacuering, killing and raping and resulting in 600,000 displaced people; the tribe directly responsible for killing about 50 men weomen and children by slaying and burning down a church around those who sought cover there. (Kenya is 80% Christian. But Odinga campaign promised for the inclusion of suria law-islam, with Obama accompanying him on a trip of about 8 days.) Correct or not (I don't know the proof of this statement which follows) it is reported that Obama assisted Odinga in bringing pressure to the elected government of Kenya, which was seeking some US funds and assistance, to give Odinga a government function as Prime Minister Co-Head of State (April 2008), both to quell the unrest of the ODM which lost the Presidency and to obtain the promise funds. Corsi, in the radio interview which I heard today, seemed to indicate that his trip went without incident and was with the blessing and encouragement of the President of Kenya to include a scheduled press conference prior to boarding his plane to exit. However, in Niarobi, armed men escourted him out and detained him until time of his departure on the orders of the PM Odinga and he was prevented from delivering the press conference. In possession of his cell phone, he managed to text a message out which came to the Kenyan President's attention, who ordered his release with apology and an open invitation to Corsi to revisit the country and give him advisement: Upon his release with this message delivered, the guard (who had been under the orders of Odinga without the Presidential approval or knowledge) shut the door and told Corsi not to return to Kenya and 'see you in hell.' ------------------ I'd be interested in hearing more about what Corsi has to say. The questions I have.... was it on Obama's dime or the coffers of our government which paid for his trip? Purpose of trip.... if government padi for/sponsored? Was he actively campaigning with Odinga or just visible with him for a few hours? This, however loose or close association with socialist political thugs..... ?????
