Barack Obama's biographical brief edited repeatedly over 17 years, but Kenyan birthplace changed just weeks after his presidential run announced


The biography provided by Barack Obama to his literary agent specified his birthplace as "Kenya". And, over the course of 17 years, despite multiple revisions by Obama, the Kenyan birthplace remained a fundamental part of the bio on the agent's website.

I've used the Wayback Archive to explore the exact transformations of Obama's biography on his agent's site (click on any of the thumbnails to zoom to a readable size).


On June 27, 1998, the website 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 (e.g., 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, Senator Barack Obama formally announced his candidacy for the Presidency.


On April 3, 2007, the website 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."

Sometime between April 3rd and April 21st, a member of the Obama campaign staff (or Obama himself) noticed the discrepancy in birthplace that would presumably disqualify the Senator from office.

On April 21, 2007, the website 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 website 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."

Old media's feeble handling of this issue -- parroting the laughable assertion that clerical errors caused Obama's birthplace to be incorrectly listed, when former clients and the agency's policy itself states that authors provide the biographical briefs -- is pathetic.

As I've demonstrated here, Obama's bio was carefully edited over the course of 17 years to reflect his various accomplishments.

It was only a few months after his presidential candidacy was announced that his Kenyan "birthplace" became Hawaiian to confirm his eligibility for office. Obama remains a client to this day, which helps explain the literary agent's willingness to instantly offer an explanation for the discrepancy.

Only a Kool-aid-swilling hack or a Democrat-media drone -- but I repeat myself -- would buy into the literary agent's lame excuse.

This is blowing my mind. But wait--

Without even looking into it, I can think of two places PRE-DATING the 2007 website bio edit, which was allegedly changed to protect his pres eligibility.

What's weird is that in his book, published in 1995, he mentions being born in Hawaii.

The other odd thing is that in 1961 a newspaper published in Hawaii printed that he was born in Hawaii.

Couldn't find the snippet from Obama's book from 1995, but did find a New York Times nwespaper article from 1990 identifying Hawaii as his birthplace.

http://www.nytimes.com/1990/02/06/us/first-black-elected-to-head-harvard-s-law-review.html

His late father, Barack Obama, was a finance minister in Kenya and his mother, Ann Dunham, is an American anthropologist now doing fieldwork in Indonesia. Mr. Obama was born in Hawaii.

So, you are one of Cosmo's dupes? I did the search, I found the same links you did. I don't believe Cosmo did any investigation, he only went by hearsay.

I'll tell you the same thing I told Cosmo (although as Cosmo you've already seen it)

I don't trust anything Obama says. He has lied over and over. The birth issue was settled long ago. I'm not sure how you/Cosmo just don't seem to be able to get the point.

OBAMA IS A LIAR, HE IS A CHEAT, AND HE DOES NOT WANT WHAT IS BEST FOR THE U.S., HE ONLY WANTS WHAT IS BEST FOR OBAMA.

Geez, this isn't exactly breaking news that his birth announcement was in the Hawaii paper (two different ones, I believe). Wipe your own butt and look it up yourself.

When I ask you for links (which never appear), it is for obscure BS no one has ever heard of. Were you really not aware of the newspaper birth announcement?

Yeah, I just made it up. Just by pure concidence and luck, everything was actually true.

The amazing thing here is that you know about all these (debunked) birther theories, but you were not aware of the newspaper birth annoucement. After the actual birth certificate, that has pretty much been Exhibit A to show that he was born in Hawaii.

All this proves to me is that when it was expedient for him to be born in Kenya (Sells more books because it makes him even more interesting and compelling) he's born in Kenya. When it was time to say Hawaii, it was Hawaii. I'm sure the dude was probably born in Hawaii. I'm also sure that he would have said he was born in fuckin Timbuktu if it meant selling more books or a better image.

Dudes a chameleon. He's a liar. No real shock there.

See, the question never should have been "Were you really born in Hawaii". The question should have been "How come you kept saying you were born in Kenya until election time?"

Except that in the book he says he was born in Hawaii. And in newspapers prior to and at the time of the book, he says Hawaii.

So, he had an non-typical life growing up--white mom from Kansas, black dad from Kenya, never saw his dad but once growing up, grew up in Hawaii, spent time in Indonesia, etc. But, in order to "sell more books" he thought it necessary to say his birthplace was Kenya even though in that book he says Hawaii?

You really think that is reasonable? How would that sell an extra book?

Only to be the devils advocate, there was far too much time between the question and the answer to discount a fabricated "old paper article". The only way to prove the birth announcement would be to see the original paper - BTW, who keeps papers as such that are not family? Someone in 1961 saved that particular paper just so they could protect Obama when he became president with a questionable birth record?

As for looking up the information, I did. I asked you to provide the link as you were the one that proclaimed it was there and real. I doubt that you came up with the same information I did.

Show me the newspaper announcement for your birth. How about any prominent politician born between 1955 and 1965? Too hokey to take too seriously.

I made a pdf of my bc and magnified both pdfs to see if I could detect any abnormalities. Mine was clean, the one provided on pdf by the WH had anomolies to my eyes. The second version of the pdf was different but still had some anomolies.

The nut you speak of was a forensic type person, I am not but I still saw things that did not match for pattern.

LIKE I'VE SAID TO YOU MANY TIMES, I DON'T SEE THAT THE BIRTH ISSUE HAS ANY BEARING, YOUR PRESIDENT HAS BEEN THERE FOR 3+ YEARS AND IS WREAKING HAVOC WITH THE NATION. IF THAT ISN'T ENOUGH FOR YOU TO DROP HIM AS YOUR FAVORITE SON THEN NOTHING THAT HAPPENS WILL EVER CHANGE YOUR MIND.

Apparently, those get dismissed as possible forgeries. Iz needs to see the actual physical copy of the paper. But if you had an actual physical copy of the paper, it would probably be fake, because no one keeps old newspapers. he's got this one locked down.

I didn't doubt that, I just think the microfiche is harder to come by than you think and the items kept may not be a detailed as the paper from 1961 seems to show.

I have no doubt that it is real but why did it take so long to produce? Why was it not produced until now? Is the birth location only being used by the administration to keep the focus off what is really happening in the country?

I've told this to others and will reiterate, I do not trust anything that Obama does and that extends to his administration and to the basic liberal side of the country. The were all standing on chairs screaming about things Bush did, I had issues with some of what he did. This administration/Obama is doing things that by far pass the things that Bush did and the liberals are just letting those things squeak by their collective reasoning because Obama is a democrat/liberal/black.
