We know Obama actively campaigned for the violent inciter Odinga when Obama journeyed to his father's homeland Kenya. And In June 2007, Raila flew to the US, where he held talks with Senator Barack Obama. Watch the video below the fold. It seems Obama was in ....uh, like company. Qaddafi was a huge supporter of Raila Odinga's in both in rhetoric and material support.
And one evil turn deserves another. Qaddafi has come out and fully endorsed Obama going so far as to say "People in Arab And Islamic World, Africa... May Have Been Involved In Legitimate Contribution Campaigns[ to Obama]."
I am sure that Obama will grease Odinga's palm should he slither into the White House. Odinga's family business - molasses - has a vested interest in ..... ethanol. Hmmmm, knowing how Obama greased the oily wheels of crooked politics in Chicage (vis a vis Rezko), Odinga's bank account would be one to watch.
Globe trotting Raila Odinga assembles Powerful Arsenal hat tip Laura
Raila's list of local and foreign political friends - thought to be immensely wealthy - remains a closely guarded secret, for strategic reasons.
While still Energy minister, Raila re-established and nurtured his links with the Libyan Government of Col Muammar Gaddafi, where again he not only did good business in oil importation, but also got substantial material support during the 2002 General Election.
Besides supporting Raila's political cause, the Libyans also played a key role in stabilising Raila in the oil business. Reliable sources say that Libyans bankrolled the Narc campaign with some $3 million (about Sh210 million), thanks to Raila's good contacts in the oil-rich land of Gaddafi.
There is no doubt, therefore, that if Raila becomes the ODM-Kenya presidential candidate, he can once more count on massive financial support from the North African country.
Besides Libya, Raila enjoys good links with the South African Government of Mr Thabo Mbeki while in Nigeria, he is known to have strong links with Gen Olusegun Obasanjo, who was a long time close friend of Raila's father, the late Jaramogi Oginga Odinga.

Obama's troubling alliance
Raila Odinga, claimed cousin of Barack Obama, current Prime Minister of Kenya, ran for president of that country in 2007 and signed an agreement with Kenyan Muslim leaders in exchange for their support which promised UNDEMOCRATIC changes such as Sharia law in certain parts of Kenya, censorship of Christian programming on government airwaves, and a ban on Christian open-air gatherings in Muslim areas as well. Violence followed Odinga's failed attempt at the presidency of Kenya, and he and Obama have continued to be in touch long after Obama's return to the United States. Source links follow:
Odinga lifted Obama's "change" platform for his 2007 campaign, see http://www.raila07.com/
Odinga's agreement with Islamic theocrats in Kenya http://eakenya.org/newsevents/article...
Odinga initially denied this agreement which was made public by the Muslims he signed the agreement with, but later admitted he did so: http://raila2007.org/1109.html?*sessi...
A few quotations from Odinga's agreement with the Muslims:
"Within 6 months re-write the Constitution of Kenya to recognize Shariah as the only true law sanctioned by the Holy Quran for Muslim declared regions."
"Within one year facilitate the establishment of a Shariah court in every Kenyan divisional headquarters."
"Popularize Islam, the only true religion, in the Coast and North Eastern Regions by ordering every primary school in Kenya in the regions to conduct daily Madrassa classes."
"No Muslim residing in Kenya whether a citizen, visitor or relative of any of the above shall be subjected to any process involving the laws of a foreign country and in particular any Muslim arrested or suspected of Terrorism or any other International crime shall only be tried within the borders of Kenya and shall be granted a competent lawyer of his/her choice at the expense of the Government."
