George Obama Arrested in Kenya for Marijuana Possession, Resisting Arrest

George Obama, the half brother of U.S. President Barack Obama has been arrested for possession of marijuana. He is being held at Huruma police post in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi.

The officer in charge, Inspector Augustine Mutembei said Obama was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana as well as resisting arrest. He is scheduled to appear in court Monday.

In Kenya, marijuana is known as bhang.

According to CNN, George Obama denied the charges.
"They took me from my home, I don't know why they are charging me."
George Obama was relatively unknown until right-wing blogs tried to use a Vanity Fair article which implied he was living in a shack against Barack Obama. George Obama bristled at the reports;
"I was brought up well. I live well even now. The magazines, they have exaggerated everything. I think I kind of like it here. There are some challenges, but maybe it is just like where you come from, there are the same challenges."
George Obama was one of the president's few close relatives who did not go to the inauguration in Washington last week. George was the last of Barack Obama Sr.'s children, and his father died in an auto accident when George was only six months old. The two half-brothers barely know each other.

Obama doesn't need his brother to embarass him - he's doing it well enough himself! Look at his cabinet! Look at the bailout plan! Just look! It's right in front of your dang faces! IDIOTS!

Why would anyone care about this? Sharing half of ones genes does not mean the George and Barack are connected in anyway that really matters. Obviously what one of the half-brothers does with his life in no way impacts the other. Barack is the leader of the greatest country on Earth and his brother still lives in poverty. So, if the brother is guilty of possession of marijuana this can in no way diminish the success and character of Barack.
CNN...please don't treat this as if it matters at all! We really aren't that stupid.

A half brother that is half the world away and we are worried about this to hold on the current president. (Wow this has no effect on my views of the current president)

Folks, we had a born again christian past president WYaaa who had his inlaws write a book that did cocaine at camp David while his daddy was president... He was a former alchoholic addict and paid for his girlfriend to get an abortion.

In comparison to the past president who lied, tortured and was the decider the man arrest could be made a saint.

KEEP IT REAL FOLKS!

this is bullshit. the Kenyans tried to extort America and guess what? they f*king failed because we "don't negotiate with terrorist" - f*kc no we don't!

of course the penalty is they publicly bust the reaped oats of our president's father.

however, not too big a scandal - actually, a very weak scandal; its just pot.
