1991 brochure listed Obama’s birthplace as Kenya

The literary agent who quickly moved to claim her identifying Barack Obama’s birthplace as Kenya was a fact-checking mistake works for a publishing company that counts Barack Obama amongst its clients.
A literary agent’s promotional text for a 1991 brochure released yesterday by Breitbart.com states Obama was “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.”
The establishment media instantly went into spin overdrive and claimed that document was the source of the whole “birther issue” (disregarding Obama’s highly dubious long form birth certificate), and set about debunking the brochure.
“Obama’s former literary agency misidentified his birthplace as Kenya while trying to promote the then-Harvard Law grad as an author in 1991,” stated an ABC News piece written hours after the release of the document.
The literary agent, Miriam Goderich, now works with Dystel & Goderich agency, which lists Obama as one of its clients. Unsurprising therefore that Goderich hastily claimed listing Obama’s birthplace as Kenya was “nothing more than a fact checking error.”
If this is the case, then it was an “error” that was allowed to stand for over 16 years.
As a new Breitbart.com report reveals, the listing still maintained that Obama’s birthplace was Kenya until at least April 2007, after Obama became a U.S. Senator.

“Goderich’s statement fails to explain why the “fact checking error” persisted for sixteen years, through at least three different versions of Jane Dystel’s website, and through at least four different versions of Obama’s biography,” reports Breitbart.com.
The establishment media’s stunt in identifying the brochure as the source of the entire ‘birther’ issue is an attempt to build a strawman by making the brochure the stand-alone piece of evidence, when in reality it’s just one piece of a much larger puzzle.
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, head of a Cold Case Posse tasked with investigating the validity of Barack Obama’s birth certificate documents, has reacted to yesterday’s bombshell release of yesterday’s brochure listing Obama’s birthplace as Kenya by noting that the revelation “puts more smoke out there.”
Despite ceaseless attacks by the mainstream media over his investigation, Arpaio told World Net Daily that he would not be deterred.
“I’m not going to back down. We are continuing to investigate what we feel are fraudulent government documents. We’re going to keep going, to prove once and for all whether they are genuine,” he said.
