Deep Birther sent me an email about something including the initials “WMR.” A little digging pointed to me to an iconoclastic journalist named Wayne Madsen, and to a pre-COLB June 9, 2008, article that says Republican operatives in Kenya had found a birth certificate for Barack Obama there.
The Online Journal republished Madsen’s original article from the Wayne Madsen Report, saying:
GOP dirty tricks operatives dispatched to Kenya to dig up any useful “dirt” on Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama, Jr., and his late Kenyan father Barack Obama, Sr., believe they have found a “smoking gun.” In this case, it is a birth certificate from the Kenyan city of Mombasa registering the birth of Barack Obama, Jr., on August 4, 1961. However, the registration is a common practice in African countries whose citizens abroad have families with foreign nationals. Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, to his Ann Dunham of Wichita, Kansas, and Barack Obama, Sr., of Nyangoma-Kogelo, Kenya. Obama’s parents were enrolled at the University of Hawaii. They divorced when Barack Obama was two years old.
No authentic birth certificate from Kenya has ever been published. If President Obama was registered as a foreign birth in Kenya, the place of birth would, of course, say Honolulu. However, I think such a registration is unlikely as President Obama never visited Kenya until an adult.
