"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague." -Cicero
AP 2004 FLASHBACK: “Kenyan-Born Obama All Set for US Senate”
He wasn't a citizen then, so he cannot be a citizen now. -W.E. ppsimmons h/t to my friend Liz D. (Huge Thanks!)
a 1991 booklet by Barack Obama’s literary agent that claimed Obama was
“born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.”
It’s not the only time Barack Obama claimed to be born in Kenya. On Sunday, June 27, 2004, the AP published an article about “Kenyan-born Obama”. The article can still be found in the internet archive.
“Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate” Here’s part of the article:
Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama, appeared set to take over
the Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of
the race on Friday night amid a furor over lurid sex club allegations.
The allegations that horrified fellow Republicans and caused his
once-promising candidacy to implode in four short days have given Obama a
clear lead as Republicans struggled to fetch an alternative.
As far as we know, Barack Obama never refuted this article.
