It was Barack Obama himself who started the false rumor that he was born in Kenya!

Barack Obama was born in Hawaii.

But there have been a lot of false claims – rumors – that he was born in Kenya.

Well, it turns out that it was Obama himself who started this false rumor.

ABC news reports:

Obama’s former literary agency misidentified his birthplace as Kenya while trying to promote the then-Harvard Law grad as an author in 1991. According to a promotional booklet produced by the agency, Acton & Dystel, to showcase its roster of writers, Obama was “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.” … Obama was listed as being born in Kenya on the Dyster & Goderich website until April 2007…

Where would a publisher get such information? There’s only one possible place – from Obama himself. That is the standard practice in the industry.

    Why would a man claim Kenya as his birthplace if it was a lie? Does this man lie all the time? Does he ever tell the truth. This happened before he was running for president so perhaps this was actually the truth for once.
