Evidence Shows Obama Used Kenya as Birthplace Until 2007

This is a simple matter of looking at the records that Barack Obama provided to his literary agent. It is true that Acton & Dystel did publish that Barack Obama was born in Kenya. However, this does not prove where he was born.

Acton & Dystel (now Dystel & Goderich) claimed Kenya was Obama’s birthplace from as early as June 27, 1998 up until between April 3, 2007 to April 21, 2007.

The record had been updated between these two time periods, but his birthplace was never changed to Hawaii until 2007. At that time someone probably realized that would cause problems with his run for President, so they changed it.

Why would he continue to hold on to a false place of birth for so long unless he had used Kenya as his birthplace in order to provide some benefits from it? Or was he indeed born in Kenya?

We can still see the evidence via the Wayback Machine Archive starting on June 27, 1998 on the page where the publisher’s website listed their clients. Obama’s bio read:

“BARACK OBAMA was the first black president of the Harvard Law Review. He was born in Kenya to an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister, and was raised in Indonesia, Hawaii, and Chicago. His first book is DREAMS FROM MY FATHER: A STORY OF RACE AND INHERITANCE.”

The Obama entry remained unmodified on June 6, 2002 until sometime around December 9, 2004 when it was modified to read:

“BARACK OBAMA is the junior Democratic senator from Illinois, and was the dynamic keynote speaker at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. He was also the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review. He was born in Kenya to an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister, and was raised in Indonesia, Hawaii, and Chicago. His first book, DREAMS FROM MY FATHER: A STORY OF RACE AND INHERITANCE, is a New York Times bestseller.”

On February 10, 2007, then Senator Barack Obama formally announced his candidacy for the Presidency.

On April 3, 2007, Obama’s bio on the Dystel & Goderich website still read:

“BARACK OBAMA is the junior Democratic senator from Illinois and was the dynamic keynote speaker at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. He was also the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review. He was born in Kenya to an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister and was raised in Indonesia, Hawaii, and Chicago. His first book, DREAMS FROM MY FATHER: A STORY OF RACE AND INHERITANCE, has been a long time New York Times bestseller.”

However, sometime between April 3rd and April 21st, Obama noticed, or possibly someone from his campaign staff noticed, the discrepancy in birthplace that would presumably disqualify the Senator from holding office.

On April 21, 2007, Obama’s bio read:

“BARACK OBAMA is the junior Democratic senator from Illinois and was the dynamic keynote speaker at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. He was also the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review. He was born in Hawaii to an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister and was raised in Indonesia, Hawaii, and Chicago. His first book, DREAMS FROM MY FATHER: A STORY OF RACE AND INHERITANCE, has been a long time New York Times bestseller.”

On June 14, 2007, the bio read:

“BARACK OBAMA, the junior Democratic senator from Illinois, is currently campaigning to become the 2008 Democratic presidential nominee. He was born in Hawaii to a father who was raised in a small village in Kenya and a mother who grew up in small-town Kansas. Barack’s father eventually returned to Kenya, and Barack grew up with his mother in Hawaii, and for a few years in Indonesia. Later, he moved to New York, where he graduated from Columbia University before moving to Chicago, where he became a community organizer. He went on to earn his law degree from Harvard, where he became the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review. His first book, DREAMS FROM MY FATHER: A STORY OF RACE AND INHERITANCE, has been a long-time New York Times bestseller.”

The media’s handling of the issue was to claim it was a “clerical error” on behalf of Miriam Goderich that caused his birthplace to be incorrectly listed, although former clients and the agency’s policy itself states that authors provide the biographical briefs.

If it was simply a “clerical error,” why was Obama’s bio carefully edited over the course of 10 years to reflect his various accomplishments and that continued to be overlooked until he decided to run for President?

Someone had to be looking at the bio and thinking to themselves that it should be updated to reflect current accomplishments, and initiate those changes to be done. How could anyone miss something so obviously erroneous unless unless it was common knowledge in Obama’s circle that he had made the claim before?

I can’t believe anyone born here in the USA, a Harvard Law graduate who spoke perfect American English would ever be mistaken for being born in Kenya unless he had made that claim himself.

As I noted before, this does not prove where Obama was born, it just shows that it is difficult to believe the Dystel & Goderich bio’s birth location was a “clerical error.”
