Dr. Jerome Corsi of WorldNetDaily says he has documentation proving that Obama was born in Kenya, not Hawaii

(May 21, 2011) — Dr. Jerome Corsi, Ph.D., who was recently interviewed by Alex Jones, provided details about when and by whom he believes forgers created the image released by the White House on April 27, 2011 purported to be the long-form birth certificate of Barack Hussein Obama II.  Corsi also declared in the interview that he has documents from the government of Kenya which show that a crime was committed when Obama’s records were either destroyed or hidden.

Corsi said he is “on the trail” of a media person who may have been involved in the creation of the long-form forgery which he claimed was released in response to the anticipated publication of his book, Where’s the Birth Certificate?.  Blogger ObamaReleaseYourRecords has suggested that that person is AP reporter Mark Niesse.

Last August, The Post & Email received an email from Niesse about the “Vexatious Requester” law being considered by the Hawaii legislature to which we responded.  However, Mr. Niesse has never responded to any of our inquiries.

Niesse appeared to toe the Hawaii Department of Health line when he wrote a story which affirmed the Department’s contention that birth index information was available in one-year increments when the HDOH had told others that it was not.  The story has since been removed from some of its source locations.

The Post & Email has contacted Mr. Niesse about the latest allegation related to Corsi by ObamaReleaseYourRecords:

Hello, Mr. Niesse, are you aware that your name has come up as a possible accomplice in forging the “long-form birth certificate” for Obama presented to the public on April 27, 2011?


Do you have a response to this allegation?

Many experts have gone on the record stating that the “document” is a forgery.

We will report if and when we receive a response from Mr. Niesse, who has apparently been on familiar terms with Janice Okubo, the Communications Director at the Hawaii Department of Health.

A report from The Daily Caller quotes Corsi as having said after the release of his book, “I was called by my insiders, several of my informants in Hawaii about three weeks before it was released, and I was told the document had been forged and put into the log book and that we would be seeing it shortly and had it described to me in detail what had been forged. I knew what was on that document before it was made public.”

Corsi’s book Where’s the Birth Certificate? was released on Tuesday, May 17, 2011.  The work was targeted by Esquire Magazine in a piece that stated that WND Chief Executive Officer Joseph Farah had made a decision to “recall and pulp” all copies of the book and issue refunds to purchasers.  The article was later “updated” with an explanation that it was “satire.”  Farah has stated that he will sue Esquire over the “libelous smear” perpetrated by its article.

It has been reported that Obama and his handlers at the Department of Justice had spent over $2,000,000 to keep his original birth certificate hidden from the public, yet on April 27, an image of such was released on all major networks and  the internet.  Almost immediately, however, graphics experts and analysts stated unequivocally that it was a bad forgery.

Dr. Corsi had been in touch with The Post & Email briefly while he was in Hawaii several weeks ago, during which we provided some information to him.  Dr. Corsi was kind enough to send The Post & Email an advance copy of his book, which we received early last week.

Corsi had been scheduled to give his first interview following publication of the book to Sean Hannity of Fox News, but Hannity canceled it on the afternoon prior to Corsi’s scheduled evening appearance.

During the interview with Jones, Corsi stated that he has evidence that Obama’s birth in Kenya was covered up by “criminal tampering” of the birth record.  He said he has proof from Kenya’s government of the criminal conspiracy.  He pronounced that Obama Sr. and Stanley Ann Dunham were never legally married and that Stanley Ann had gone to Kenya alone and given birth to Obama II there.

Does that theory lend more credence to Lucas Smith’s document allegedly obtained from the Coast Province Hospital in Mombasa, Kenya?

The State Department has been sued to produce the travel records of Stanley Ann Dunham, Obama’s alleged mother, but has implied that they were destroyed, which is against the stated policies of both the National Archives Records Administration (NARA) and the State Department.  According to the NARA, the State Department should still have Stanley Ann Dunham’s passport applications.  The State Department released records from 1965 and forward to Christopher Strunk, one of the plaintiffs who had filed a lawsuit against State.

If Obama was born in Hawaii in 1961 as he has claimed, what is the State Department hiding?  Why did Obama hide his “birth certificate” for almost three years if it was on file with the Hawaii Department of Health as it would have been all along had he been born there?

Why did the Hawaii Department of Health make public statements about Obama’s alleged birth in Hawaii but then claim that privacy laws prohibited the release of his full birth record?

In another interview, Corsi stated that “the White House is running a full-court press” against his book.  He said that he intends to prove that the long-form birth certificate released on April 27, 2011 is a forgery.

Corsi stated that he “knows” that Obama was not born in Hawaii and that “Kapiolani does not have the records of his mother.” He also said that the Kenyan government and “intelligence services” there did “a deep search” for Obama II’s birth records.  Corsi also appeared to validate Atty. Philip Berg’s contention that Obama’s step-grandmother, known as “Mama Sarah,” had affirmed that Obama II was born in Kenya.

If there was a conspiracy to put Obama in the White House, how many people are involved in both Kenya and the United States?  How many people within the Department of Justice know and have been complicit?  How many people in Hawaii know?

And what will be the price that they pay?


Update, May 21, 8:58 p.m. EDT: The Post & Email has received a response from the Associated Press regarding the question we posed to Mark Niesse about the allegation of his involvement in creating what could be a forged birth certificate for Obama.  The response reads:
