Bizarrely, Gilbert's track record as a documented liar is not stopping Corsi and WND from promoting him.
In an April 23 WND article, Corsi touts Gilbert's latest stunt, a interview he conducted with President Obama's half-brother, Abongo Malik "Roy" Obama, in which Malik complains that Barack Obama "exploited the family in Kenya for political purposes and now has abandoned them."
Needless to say, Corsi makes no mention of how badly Gilbert has been discredited or that he himself has been burned by Gilbert's lies. It's also unclear whether Malik Obama was informed of Gilbert's history of falsehoods before the interview.
Things get even stranger in an April 26 article:
Among other accusations, along with Muslim Brotherhood fundraising, Malik has been accused of collaboration with Sudan’s radical Islamic regime, using money raised in his father’s and brother’s name for personal profit, and partnering with a cult leader.
Gilbert, who says he has gotten to know Malik over the past few months, insists Malik’s relationships “with questionable characters have been greatly misinterpreted.”
“All these relationships only have to do with Malik trying to find ways to help his extended family and his impoverished village financially,” he said.
“I can assure you that Malik is no terrorist-mastermind finance guy,” said Gilbert. “Malik has a 16-year-old son who is very ill. He doesn’t have money to keep his sick son in the hospital, and he can barely keep his car running.”
In other words, Corsi is giving Gilbert a forum to contradict his own reporting. Apparently, Corsi is a glutton for punishment from Gilbert.
Given that neither Corsi nor Gilbert can be trusted, they seem to deserve each other.
