Odinga And Obama:Raila Odinga Barack Obama Link Deny
Odinga And Obama:Raila Odinga Barack Obama Link Deny – Republican writer Jerome Corsi, who wrote a book called “The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality,” to slam Barack Obama,claims that the senator has given money to Raila Odinga.
Raila Odinga who is the Prime Minister of Kenya has denied the story.The Times reports:
Corsi arrived in Kenya Thursday to promote the book and to investigate Obama’s ties to Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga, according to a news release sent to the media by Corsi’s publisher last week. In a chapter of Corsi’s book titled “Kenya, Odinga, Communism, and Islam,” the author claims Obama gave Odinga $1 million for his 2007 presidential campaign — a claim both Obama and Odinga deny
PolitiFact.com and factcheck.org have debunked the story by saying:
Jerome Corsi’s “The Obama Nation” is a mishmash of unsupported conjecture, half-truths, logical fallacies and outright falsehoods.Corsi is a renowned conspiracy theorist who says that George Bush is attempting to create a North American Union (we looked at that here) and that there is evidence that the World Trade Center may have collapsed because it was seeded with explosives. More recently, Corsi claimed that Obama released a fake birth certificate. We’ve debunked that twice now. And, as our colleagues at PolitiFact.com found, many of the themes in “The Obama Nation” are reworked versions of bogus chain e-mail smears.
In Corsi’s case, we judge that both his reputation and his latest book fall short when measured by the standards of good scholarship, or even of mediocre journalism.
That’s all we have for now on Odinga And Obama:Raila Odinga Barack Obama Link Deny.
