[OneNewsNow] 16 Oct 2008--The author of a best-selling book on Barack Obama says he didn't know what was going to happen to him during a frightening 13-hour detention in Kenya. As it turns out, the story has a connection to the Democratic presidential candidate.
Dr. Jerome Corsi's latest book is The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality -- which at one point occupied the top spot of the New York Times best-seller list.
The author says he traveled to Kenya to investigate Senator Obama's relationship with radical Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga. Corsi says just before he was ready to conduct a news conference to reveal his findings, he was detained by Kenyan immigration and military officials and was held for several hours.
