US employee: Politics wasn’t behind leak about immigration status of Obama’s aunt

By on September 6, 2013

A Homeland Security Department employee has acknowledged that he disclosed to The Associated Press days before the 2008 election that President Barack Obama’s aunt was living in the U.S. illegally and said he did not reveal the information for political reasons.

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement Office of Professional Responsibility released a 20-page report from August 2010 about its investigation in the case. The Huffington Post reported on it Thursday.

The report said the employee, whose name was censored in publicly released versions of the report, told internal investigators that he confirmed Zeituni Onyango’s immigration status to the AP “because regardless of political affiliation … I think the American public has a right to know.”

Citing two separate unnamed sources, including one identified only as a federal law enforcement official, the AP disclosed in October 2008 that Onyango, a Kenya native, had been instructed to leave the United States in 2004 by a U.S. immigration judge who denied her asylum request.

        Thomas, i have seen a few of your post. You are one of the most biggoted pricks I’ve come across in a long time. Oh and not hating on you, just calling it like you expose it. It’s people like you that are every bit as bad as the Taliban and any other murderous extreme group out there. You proselytize hate to incite the masses that are as narrow thinking as you.

          You proselytize two buckets of paint: one black and one white. Take a cup of white paint and pour it in the black bucket, and you still have black paint. Take a cup of black paint, and pour it in the white bucket, and you no longer have white paint. You proselytize sowing tares in the wheat field. Matthew 13

            LOL. Keep going Thomas. With each post your irrational thought process gets more and more exposed. I am not anti Christian, I am however anti bigoted christianity, of which you clearly fall in to that category.

        • Thomas

          You can hardly call me “like the Taliban” when you are an Anti-Christian as any Muslim terrorist such as Al Qaeda that your buddy BO is supporting. You definitely try to hide your hate, but I can see you for what you are. Muslims have attacked Christians all over the world, which is evidently what you support. Now the Muslim BO loves it that Christians are attacked and murdered else, as he intends upon doing the same thing here. Come hunt me down BOY!! Come try to do something to me!!! You are no different than Al Qaeda!!! Bring it on!!!!

      Policies are not synonymous with race. I suggest an English written class.

    Frank, you are right about that…it runs in the family! On the other hand, I think this “she” is more likely a “he”. When I first saw this picture, I saw a man dressed as a woman…and not a woman at all. I guess that trait runs in the family too! :-)

    • Anna

      That’s the first impression that I had.

        Did you really? Look at how masculine and square the jawline is, along with very broad, manly looking shoulders. The huge sunglasses are probably worn to hide other manly features. Maybe this is another one of Obozo’s sweetie pies…like Reggie Love.

    I came across this site a few days ago as a link in an article lead me here. I have been reading some of the comments in various articles over the last few days. The bigoted hate that I see spewed in these comment threads on a daily basis is incredible. You should all sit down with your children or grandchildren or nieces and nephews, and read your own comments to them and explain yourselves. If you don’t feel that you could do that then perhaps you need to re-examine yourselves. Amazing that you profess to be Christians. If that is what being a Christian is all about then perhaps you should all have your own island like the leppers did back in the day.

    • Thomas

      You are just mad because Christian and pusillanimous are not synonymous. You just wish that Christians would like salt that has lost its saltiness, and therefore no better than sand for you to walk on.
      “DONT TREAD ON ME!!” As you have heard my “Rattle.”

    Though I agree with the stance that this website presents of the truth in the matter of the Obamanation administration & their lackeys including both sides of the isle in congress. I am not in agreement with some of the adolescent rederick from some of the commentators who support this website.

    This does a disservice to toughs who are uninformed about these issues & does not help in the education there of. People will turn away & not listen then.

    I use sarcastic comments like Obamanation & islime ect. as well & anger but I inform with facts to go along with it in order to educate the outsider to the information about this administration”s folly & blatant lies to the public & congress’s lackey response who do not speak out about the whole entire picture as to what is really going on.Of course, this includes the main steam media & it’s blacking out of information that is ignored by these over bloated news outlets.

    Please, when you speak out add to the conversation with more information to add to the information that is already being presented. Change your mind set to one that is about educating instead of just coming out with comments like she looks like a man ect..

    You are dealing with an audience that has already made it’s mind up of perceiving you & this website as bias instead of objective in your reasoning.

    Some of the people who come to this website are just looking for a reason to make the information that is being presented as illegitimate. Everyone of us have an emotional side to our nature whether we want to admit it or not.

    Do not feed in to that so the real & true information gets tossed aside. The outsiders to these kind of websites have stereotyped people who support websites such as these because of their stereotype of Christians & Jews.

    I am saying this as an atheist and an independent voter who agrees with the information that is being presented by this website. I see beyond the rederick & look at the facts..
    Unaware to some of the religious is that not all atheist are communist or socialist but believe in a fair free market system & the constitution of the United States & their are more of us than you may think.

    I hope what I say is taken in an objective manner of thinking & not with hostility.

    Keep on speaking out about the truth because that is what it is all about in order to protect our constitutional rights & the threat of tierney from islam & of others.

    Take care…
