Should We Believe Obama’s Granny?

Obama’s Granny Sarah in Kenya is telling folks that Obama’s granddaddy was tortured by the British many years ago and the way he was treated caused him to despise them. She claims that grand pappy Hussein Onyango Obama (are we allowed to write Hussein) was a cook for a British officer and the officer found out that grand pappy was sympathetic to the group that wanted to oust the Brits and gain Kenyan independence. He was jailed and tortured for this.

I have two questions. Should we believe her and why is this a news story?

The first thing is, should we believe this story? The Media sure seems to since the Times UK has a two pager detailing the exploits of young pappy Hussein (as Britney would say, Oops, I did it again). It is major news as evidenced by the link at Drudge. This woman has been deemed credible by the media. After all, she is the granny of The One and when she speaks they should hang on every word.

But wait. This is the same woman who said she was at the bedside IN KENYA when Barack Obama, her grandson, was born. This is a story that never received two pages of coverage and people who mention it in reference to Obama’s qualifications to be president are singled out as nuts, haters, and worse than 9/11 truthers. We did not make it up, she said it.

So, if her memory is good enough to recount the entire story of grand pappy Hussein then why is her memory of Obama’s Kenyan birth failed? Why do the media give credence to what she said about torture but not what she said about the place of Barry’s birth?

A reporter gave this woman legitimacy and researched her story of torture and then wrote a lengthy piece about it. Seems to me that her claims of Obama’s Kenyan birth would warrant a hell of a lot more in depth research to ensure that the next President is qualified under the Constitution. Before some idiot tells me that his birth certificate has been posted, that was not a birth certifiate. It was a record of what is in a database. We need to see an original with the place of birth filled out (as well as all the other demographic data that will make it clearer). We also need to have all information from Kenya unsealed and offered for scrutiny. Why do you suppose Kenya and Hawaii have locked up Obama’s records (and what kind of record besides a birth certificate could Kenya possibly have).

Either we call granny a liar on both stories or we say she is telling the truth on both but we can’t give her credibility in one instance and say she lacks it in another.

Since Obama mentioned the story granny told in his book (and the Times UK gave her credibility by writing the story), I say we call her legitimate and investigate more deeply the claims of a Kenyan birth.

Why is this news? It is a story about something that has no impact on our country and pappy Hussein is dead. Why is this news when the story of Obama’s Kenyan birth is not? That is much more relevant to us than how a British subject was treated after WWII.
