  1. Open letter to Michelle Obama after API’s discussion with a CIA official in Oslo
    Posted by africanpress on October 20, 2008

    To: Michelle Obama,
    Wife to the Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Obama, US Senator
    I have decided to write this open letter and to refer you to our telephone conversation the day your husband was having a debate with his opponent in New York. This has to be an open letter because the story is already out there and many Americans are crying for the truth about what we discussed.

    I know our discussion was not meant to harm your husband’s candidacy nor was it meant to derail the US Presidential elections in any way. We both know that our talk was – a sister to brother talk – black to black person talk – in the African perspective. The problem came later when we listened to the taped recording of our talk. API thought it wise to publish some of the contents that are not inflammatory. API did the best to select that which could not cause any chaos and we in API did not expect that waht we chose to publish would have the impact it now has had in the last five days.

    Many Americans have surprised us in the way they take the interview very seriously. We want to respect them – as we have promised from day one – to let them know the truth in what transpired between yourself and us. We have realised that the American people want to know you well before you probably become their first Lady.

    The intention of writing to you this open letter is to appeal to you to confirm that we had a talk because it is the only right thing to do now, so that we avoid any embarrassment should the whole tape be aired unedited. You are well aware of our discussions touching on thorny issues like Iran’s good trade relationship with Kenya and the fact Kenya may play a role in mending the relationship between Iran and the US so that healthy trade relationship may be achieved if your husband gets the presidency. Remember the length and the depth of our talk on other issues of importance in this hotly contested election where as you have stated – is an opportunity for the black people to start being proud of America and to be patriotic.

    API was disappointed that one of your husband’s spokespersons rushed to the press to deny that you had called API. It is best that they check with you first before jumping to conclusions as if they control your private calls everyday.

    API is interested in handling this matter in a good and reasonable way so that we may not be forced to release the tapes in its entirety. We do not want to be party to causing unnecessary chaos before the elections. If you just come forward and confirm that there was a call you placed to API, that will enable API to be out of it and nobody will continue to demand that we air unedited tape, but that we can release the one with information that is already known to the public.

    We will appreciate solving this matter this way in order to avoid unnecessary law suits that may come about.

    It is my apology to you that we did not let you know that the conversation was being taped, and yet I expect you to know that being a public figure, such may happen.

    We have decided to write to you after our discussion today with a US CIA official in Oslo.

    Regards

    The major hurdle that threatened to block the release of the Michelle Obama’s true interview tapes has now been removed.
    Posted by africanpress on October 19, 2008
    The legal hurdles that API feared in connection with the release of the tape has now been settled. The American people has soon to be treated to the truth about the true personality of their (probably) incoming first Lady.

    API is soon to conclude an agreement on which of the media channels in the US is to air the Michelle Obama tapes. This has come about because many news channels have shown great interest in getting the tapes so that they air to the American people before the elections.

    Many Americans are waiting and we promise to satisfy their desire very soon. The delay in releasing the tapes is due to two things:

    1. The legal issues that may arise after we release the tapes.
    This one has now been cleared and API feels safe and is no longer in fear when it comes to a legal battle that may come when the information gets out.

    2. Choosing one media channel to air the tapes in the USA.
    When we wrote the story, many people contacted us asking for the verification. At the same time, many media outlets have contacted API and would like to be the sole network to air the tapes. What we are finalising now is to come to an agreement with one channel that will have to air the tapes unedited.

    After noticing the desire that has been exhibited – to have the tapes out, may be you Americans would like API to air the tape through a particular news channel. Your advice will be appreciated.

    We are also seeking to agree with the particular channel that we will finally choose to give the tapes to, that they study the US laws properly so that we are not sued. Some have informed us that there are some states in the country that do not have laws that the Obama’s can use in attacking API. It may be wise that the tapes get aired in such a State to avoid court cases being filed against us.

    The important thing we are discussing with the US news networks is if they are ready to take the whole responsibility in case the Obama camp reacts using the courts.

    We understand the desperation some people may have due to the delay that has been exhibited by us, but API is interested in being safe after the release of the tapes and this seems to be achieved now.

    Some who have been impatient have called us so many names. That does not bother us much because we know we have the information.

    When people say API is not known or that it is a small thing, we get surprised. People must never forget that all the huge media networks started somewhere small and became what they are today. Credibility is not our fear because we know we have a true copy of the interview. Failing to bring forth the truth is what would bother us, and yet we know that we will accomplish.

    The urgency of the matter is known to API, but we wish to state that we are not served with a situation that will destroy us even if we have to move slow but sure, so that any loopholes that may give anyone a chance to take us to court is closed tightly.

    We are about to reach the end of this saga and all those who favour the truth will rejoice. We know we will also hurt many who will see us as a news agency that interfered with the US politics. We believe, however, that where there are two competitors competing against one another one will win and the other will win, in cases of course where a draw is not an option.

    It is important now for us to inform the readers that any person or persons sending us comments ¨which contain some bad word or words will not be published. We will only continue to release serious comments with no abusive language.

    The Michelle Obama story to be updated tomorrow the 19th of October
    Posted by africanpress on October 18, 2008

    We would like to inform all our readers that update on Michelle Obama story will be released tomorrow.
    We have understood the importance that the American people put into electing the right candidate for the Presidency.

    It is important that the tapes be released and all can judge for themselves what Mrs Obama meant and why it has come at the near-end of electioneering. The fact that the mainstream American media has been reluctant to reveal what they know about Obama is very unfortunate.

    The American mainstream media seems to be interested in excitement and we all know that the only excitement at present is for some to say they witnessed history of some kind – the election of a black man to govern the only powerful nation in the world.

    All the readers should exercise patience. We in API promise that you will get to know the truth when the recordings are finally released.

    Probably around midnight or early morning of the 19th where they are….so might not take too long.

    From API themselves…latest news on the Mrs Obama call.

    Recordings and information leading to recent API story on Michelle Obama’s telephone call is now being cleared for release
    Posted by africanpress on October 17, 2008

    API is disturbed by the way many have reacted to the story on Mrs Obama’s call. Many have shown us by the way they have behaved towards API that they only think of their own interests because they have demanded that the audio recordings should be released immediately. We understand that the tapes should be released, but those who have demanded the release of the tapes seem not take into account that API may become a suing target.

    The Recordings:

    API has recordings of the conversation between API and Mrs Obama (Shocking development: Mrs Obama decides enough is enough: “My husband was born in Hawaii and adopted by his step father, does that make him unpatriotic; she asks”, on a direct telephone to API., and we confirm that the audio will be released to the public. In the last 24 hours, API has been consulting legal advisers on the way forward in order to avoid being sued by the Obama camp. API has realised that the contents of the tapes if made public may change the political atmosphere in America for ever, especially in the next few days.

    Due to enormous reactions received, API now understands the impact of the statements made by Mrs Obama. The American people have reacted in a way we in API would never have expected.

    Many have question why Mrs Obama would choose a little known online media group instead of the American media. API was chosen because of a Nairobi contact that did not like the way API was covering Barack Obama using information collected from American media outlets. The Nairobi contact prevailed upon Mrs Obama to talk to API.

    The only thing API may have done wrong is not informing Mrs Obama that the conversation was being recorded. This is why it is taking time to release the recording while consulting a legal team because API wants to be legally safe from any Obama camp law suit.

    The US Media Outlets:

    Since the release of Mrs Obama story, many US media outlets have insisted that API should release the recordings made when Mrs Obama spoke with API. We understand the importance of the recordings in our possession and yet the first thing we are thinking of is not simply to make them public because groups are pressurising API to do so. The release of the information will be done, because we know we have Mrs Obama on tape, but API must do it in a way that does not put API in an embarrassing legal situation.

    Die-hard Obama supporters:

    A number of Americans who are die-hard Obama followers have tried their best to intimidate API using all kinds of threatening methods when they call in and when they email us. They are implying that API is planning to destroy Obama’s chances to become the next US President. API does not have a direct interest in the US Presidential elections and we want Obama supporters to understand that. However, when someone who may become the next first lady makes such comments as in the story we have published, the public have the right to know. Intimidation directed to the publishers of the story is not the answer.

    The delay to make public the recordings is expected to give time to Mrs Obama to come clean and tell the American people that her comments were not meant to harm anyone but that she was reacting to the media pressure on her husband. She should also come out and tell the American people that she will not discriminate those who are not Obama fanatics if she becomes the first lady.

    Die-hard Mcain supporters:

    Those who do not support Obama are actively pushing for the release of the recordings also, and we understand them very well. In many telephone conversations with them we, however, get disturbed when we realise that most of them want the recordings to be released because they want to use it to stop Senator Obama from being elected President. They state clearly that if the story is true and released now, the contents will safe America from a constitutional crisis that may come if things come out after the elections that proves Obama was adopted by a foreigner, thus, disqualifying him from the Presidency.

    Some readers:

    Some have questioned why API has its base in Norway. Online News Media can be based anywhere in the world. With the Internet age, a news network can have people anywhere in the world. API’s news correspondents – 19 of them are real and based in the African Continent. API is a solid Daily Online News Channel and this Obama story will not change that.

    Questioning API on being based in Norway:

    There is nothing wrong having African Press International based in Norway and the channel run by Africans from the African Continent. Even Kenya’s present Prime Minister Raila Odinga lived in Norway for some time before joining the Kenya government.

    API has also been accused because of the timing to release Mrs Obama story. Some even discus small issues as to why API telephone number starts with 00, and spellings in the article. This to us in API sounds ridiculous.

    The important thing to be concerned about is how API obtained the story and how genuine it is. The second thing is to exercise understanding and to respect why there is a delay in releasing the recordings. API is not saying there are no recordings, but it is important to take serious API’s concerns on a possible suit if the tapes are not handled carefully.

    API is not out to convince the American public of anything. We do not want to influence the outcome of the US Presidential elections. API got a true story and published it. The fact that the story has caused a stir was unexpected, but that does not mean API must rush in a manner that will cause problems to itself, just to satisfy those who want the audio tapes so badly.

    When the legal concerns are cleared, which is happening in a short while, API will make public all the recordings available. This will also include comments, not yet published, which will most certainly put the Obama Campaign spokesperson who had dismissed the story off balance.

    Even if our recordings or any other recordings had surfaced after the elections and if the contents were damaging to the elected person that still could have caused any elected president to vacate the White House. We all know that the tapes released in the US in 1974 forced President Richard Nixon out of office. The truth is the truth. The tapes during Nixon time did not lie.

    The same here. The recordings that API will release soon will not lie to the American people. Most probably, it will change the political landscape, something the Americans should start getting prepared to face.
