Obama's Other Life

Joe Klein wrote on Time On January 3, the day of the caucuses, he had a conversation with Bishop Desmond Tutu, who had flown to Nairobi to see if he could begin negotiations with the factions. In the days since his Iowa victory, Obama has had near-daily conversations with the U.S. Ambassador in Kenya or with opposition leader Raila Odinga.
Odinga is the man who promised to institute Sharia law in Kenya if he was elected, and who is leading the Luo tribe in killing innocent Kikuyus (the tribe of President Kibaki)
As of late this afternoon, before his rally in Rochester, N.H., Obama was trying to reach Kenyan President Kibaki.
He spoke to the man doing the killing, a fellow tribe member, multiple times before calling the President of Kenya. If Obama is elected President of the US, will he sent American troops to Kenya to install Sharia law?
Pamela Geller blogged It appears that Obama and Morris were helping Odinga shape the whole political process and formulate the public relations/diplomatic issues , for domestic political consumption and favor in the US to best position acceptance of what appears at best to be an entirely cynical attempt to subvert the elections and at worst, and quite likely, a coup attempt by Odinga.
