Barack Obama, the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.You can see the image of the blurb over at Breitbart.com--which has never bought into the birther stuff, and has you might expect, finds this rather shocking. It's possible that the literary agent was just trying to make Obama a bit more exotic to sell a book. But isn't it interesting that this inaccurate statement matches up with all the crazy birther claims?
UPDATE: While I think World Net Daily should always be taken a a bag of salt (not a grain), they have gathered up a number of items that refer to Obama as born in Kenya: press releases from the Kenyan government; Kenyan Parliamentary debates; newspaper accounts from when he was assured of election to the U.S. Senate (and having an African-born U.S. Senator was a big deal) and after he was elected President.
As I said, everyone knows that he was born in Hawaii...except, apparently, his literary agent, and people in the Kenyan government.
