Obama's "home country"?

(Apr. 21, 2010) — The March 25, 2010 “Hansard,” or Minutes of the Kenyan Parliament, has again disappeared from its website.  The document contained a clear and unequivocal statement that Barack Hussein Obama was born in Kenya and is consequently not a “native American.”

However, Hansards from March 24 and 30, 2010 are still available and presumably all others from this year.  This is the second time this document has been removed from the Parliament’s website.

The same document was unavailable for several hours on April 16 and then  restored as previously reported, until today.

The text of the statement made by Kenya’s Minister of Lands, James Orengo,  appears in the middle of page 31 of the March 25 Hansard and reads as follows:

If America was living in a situation where they feared ethnicity and did not see itself as a multiparty state or nation, how could a young man born here in Kenya, who is not even a native American, become the President of America?” (emphasis added by The Post & Email)

The Parliament’s website was updated on April 15, when the governing body announced its adjournment for two months. At that time, all Hansards from 2008 were removed, which included the November 5, 2008 Hansard in which many statements referring to Obama’s purported Kenyan origins were recorded.

A reader of The Post & Email found a link to the March 25, 2010 Hansard which still contains the statement on page 31 that Obama was not born in the United States, but in Kenya.
