This is a synopsis of a World Net Daily article by Jerome Corsi:

Why did President Obama avoid Kenya, the homeland of his father, on his first trip to Africa since becoming president?
The answer largely rests in Obama's desire to stay as far away as possible from Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga, a fellow Luo tribesman that Sen. Obama worked hard to get elected president in Kenya's December 2007 presidential election.
The White House remains engaged in full campaign-like cover-up mode, working desperately to keep the American public from knowing how close Obama's ties to radical socialist Raila Odinga truly are.
In the meantime, the Kenyan government continues to investigate Odinga's guilt in allegedly causing his Luo tribe supporters to rise up in protest and kill some 1,300 members of the dominant Kikuyu tribe after Kikuyu President Mwai Kibaki beat Odinga in the December 2007 presidential contest.
Odinga used tribal violence to gain power
In the course of the tribal warfare, outraged Luo members massacred Kikuyu Christians who sought refuge in a Kenyan church in Eldoret, a small village about 185 miles northwest of Nairobi. The Luo displaced hundreds of thousands of Kikuyu throughout the country who fled in fear of their lives.
The tribal violence in Kenya occurred during the 2008 presidential campaign in the United States, while Obama, then in New Hampshire for the primary, maintained telephone contact with Odinga.
Former members of Odinga’s Orange Democratic Movement, or ODM, party told World Net Daily that when Sen. Obama visited Kenya on a "fact-finding" trip in 2006, he was carrying out part of a secret strategy that also included exploiting divisive tribal tensions and ultimately taking advantage of the rioting.
In Kenya, World Net Daily obtained an ODM campaign strategy document that planned for the Odinga campaign to have won the presidential election regardless of the actual vote count, simply by alleging voter fraud had stolen the win from Odinga.
The plan further called for "opportunities" for Odinga to pursue, including exploiting ethnic tensions and using "violence as a last resort" to gain power.
The record shows that rather than condemn Odinga for the post-election Luo tribal violence, Obama worked with former U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan and then-U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to create for Odinga a way to share the head-of-state position with President Kibaki, even though Odinga lost the election.
Obama's first trip to Africa as president is not the first time he has avoided being seen in public with Odinga.
During the U.S. presidential campaign last June, Obama refused to meet with Odinga when the Kenyan leader traveled to Washington.
After being elected president, Obama also snubbed Odinga by refusing to host a meeting with him at the White House during a visit in May.
