Booklet From 1991: Obama – ‘Born In Kenya And Raised In Indonesia And Hawaii’ [Updated Below]

17 May 2012 @ 14:11

The headline for the report by Joel Pollack, over at Breitbart, certainly grabs one’s attention:

The Vetting – Exclusive – Obama’s Literary Agent in 1991 Booklet: ‘Born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii’

A highlight:

Breitbart News has obtained a promotional booklet produced in 1991 by Barack Obama’s then-literary agency, Acton & Dystel, which touts Obama as “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.”

The booklet, which was distributed to “business colleagues” in the publishing industry, includes a brief biography of Obama among the biographies of eighty-nine other authors represented by Acton & Dystel.

It also promotes Obama’s anticipated first book, Journeys in Black and White—which Obama abandoned, later publishing Dreams from My Father instead.

As the Senior Managers of Breitbart write:

It is evidencenot of the President’s foreign origin, but that Barack Obama’s public persona has perhaps been presented differently at different times.

Do take the time to click here and read the whole report.

UPDATE at 1919…

Over at Breitbart, Ben Shapiro has published an update to this story.

A highlight:

According to, a website that caches websites on a regular basis, the website – the official website for Dystel & Goderich, Obama’s literary agents – was using the Barack Obama “born in Kenya” language until April 2007, just two months after then-Senator Obama declared his campaign for the presidency.

Mr. Shapiro has the details here.

Oh what a tangled web we weave….

[Ever since this story broke, the song that has been playing in my head is ‘Born in Arizona / Move to Babylonia / King Tut’ — Help!]

    I denounce Barack Obama’s literary agent as a wingnut spreading this vile rumor (again)! Let the vetting begin!

    He’s the composite kind of character.

    So I was correct, he should have known the difference between England and Britain.

    I bet he gets especially pissed off if you call it Keen-ya as opposed to Ken-ya.
