WND Obfuscates on Corsi Detention
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily's Oct. 7 article on WND writer Jerome Corsi being detained in Kenya obfuscates the apparent fact that Corsi is violating his declared purpose for going there.

As we pointed out, the Oct. 2 WND article announcing Corsi's trip claimed that Corsi was going "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." But the article also announced various anti-Obama activities,such as bringing money to Obama's half-brother, George Obama, while repeating the false claim that George Obama "lives on $12 a year."

Neither Corsi nor WND have publicly identified the "Christian missionaries" at whose purported behest Corsi is visiting Kenya, nor have they explained how these mysterious "missionaries" are linked to Corsi's Obama-smearing activities there.

While the Oct. 7 article insists that "His visit and his activities during his stay have been well-known to authorities at the highest levels," there is no mention of those "Christian missionaries" and Corsi's apparent deviation from their agenda by attacking Obama.

UPDATE: WND also fails to note George Obama's response to Joseph Farah's cash gimmick, according to the UK Telegraph: "I have not heard from this man, but even if he came here with that money, I would not take it from him. ...  He is no friend of me or my family, and if the police want to send him out of Kenya, that would be better."
