What most people know is that the Associated Press (AP) is one of
the largest, internationally recognized, syndicated news services.
What most people don’t know that is in 2004, the AP was a “birther”
How so? Because in a syndicated report, published Sunday, June 27,
2004, by the Kenyan Standard Times, and which was, as of this report,
The AP reporter stated the following:
Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama,
appeared set to take over the Illinois Senate seat after his main
rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of the race on Friday night amid a furor
over lurid sex club allegations.
This report explains the context of the oft cited debate, between
Obama and Keyes in the following Fall, in which Keyes faulted Obama for
not being a “natural born citizen”, and in which Obama, by his quick
retort, “So what? I am running for Illinois Senator, not the
presidency”, self-admitted that he was not eligible for the office. Seeing
that an AP reporter is too professional to submit a story which was
not based on confirmed sources (ostensibly the Obama campaign in this
case), the inference seems inescapable: Obama himself was putting out
in 2004, that he was born in Kenya.
The difficulty in finding this gem of a story is hampered by Google,
which is running flak for Obama: because if you search for
“Kenyan-born US Senate” you wont find it, but if you search for the
phrase without quotes you will find links which talk about it.
