Fue en la campaña de Hillary Clinton del 2008, y no Donald Trump, donde nació y de donde salió la mentirosa campaña y la teoría de conspiración de que Barack H. Obama había nacido en Kenya y no en los EE.UU.
Tal parece que en este caso Hillary Clinton es la ¨gatica de María Ramos, tira la piedra y esconde la mano.¨, aunque no la pudo esconder tan rápido como hubiera querido. La respuesta de James Asher al tweet de Hillary Clinton es reveladora.

In 2008 Clinton Advisor Sidney Blumenthal Told Press Obama Was Born In Kenya
September 16th 2016
The former D.C. bureau chief for McClatchy claims that a representative from the Clinton campaign approached him about investigating the Obama "birther" claim in 2008. The new claim is casting doubt on the Clinton's denial that her campaign was the first to raise questions about President Barack Obama's place of birth.
In a recent tweet, former bureau chief James Asher said that in 2008 Sidney Blumenthal, a longtime Clinton staffer and confidant, told him "face-to-face" that Obama was born in Kenya.
Asher's tweets came shortly after CNN uncritically repeated Hillary Clinton's claim that her 2008 campaign never raised any questions about president Obama's birth.
Asher also claimed, in a direct response to a tweet from Hillary Clinton, that Blumenthal pressed his news organization to investigate claims that Obama was born in Kenya.
While the Clinton campaign might have attempted to maintain distance from the questions in 2008, it appears that behind the scenes--if Asher's claims are true--that they were quietly working to fuel such rumors not only with the public, but with the press corps, whom they hoped would do their dirty work for them.
Exit question: What are the chances Asher was the only journalist Sidney Blumenthal approached?
Washington (CNN)Hillary Clinton's 2008 campaign manager rejected Donald Trump's claim Friday that the campaign was responsible for the "birther" movement.
"The campaign, nor Hillary, did not start the birther movement. Period. End of the story," Patti Solis Doyle told CNN's Wolf Blitzer. "There was a volunteer coordinator, I believe in late 2007, I think in December. One of our volunteer coordinators in one of the counties in Iowa, I don't recall whether they were an actual a paid staffer, but they did forward an email that promoted the conspiracy."

Patti Solis Doyle, who was Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager in 2008 until the Iowa caucuses, admitted on Friday that a Clinton campaign staffer had, in fact, circulated the Birther conspiracy theory that Barack Obama was born outside the U.S. and therefore potentially ineligible to serve in the presidency.
Doyle made the admission on Twitter, as she responded to former George W. Bush spokesman Ari Fleischer. Fleischer said that Clinton’s staff had spread the rumor. Doyle said that was a “lie” — but admitted, in the same tweet, that she had fired the “rogue” staffer who had used email to spread the Birther conspiracy theory.
Doyle appeared about an hour later on CNN with Wolf Blitzer to address the issue once again. She denied that Hillary Clinton had started the Birther theory — then admitted that someone in the Clinton campaign had, in fact, been involved. Here is part their exchange:
Blitzer: Someone supporting Hillary Clinton was trying to promote this so-called Birther issue? What happened?
Doyle: So we — absolutely, the campaign nor Hillary did not start the Birther movement, period, end of story there. There was a volunteer coordinator, I believe, in late 2007, I believe, in December, one of our volunteer coordinators in one of the counties in Iowa — I don’t recall whether they were an actual paid staffer, but they did forward an email that promoted the conspiracy.
Blitzer: The Birther conspiracy?
Doyle: Yeah, Hillary made the decision immediately to let that person go. We let that person go. And it was so, beyond the pale, Wolf, and so not worthy of the kind of campaign that certainly Hillary wanted to run.
Doyle went on to relate how she personally called Obama campaign manager David Plouffe to apologize, and he accepted. Blitzer then asked her about the Mark Penn memorandum, in which the campaign’s strategist proposed exploiting Obama’s “lack of American roots.” Doyle asserted, and Blitzer agreed, that the memo had nothing to do with Birtherism.
Earlier Friday morning, in a speech in Washington, D.C. largely devoted to veterans and military endorsements, Republican nominee Donald Trump briefly addressed the Birther issue:
Hillary Clinton and her campaign of 2008 started the Birther controversy. I finished it. I finished it. You know what I mean. President Barack Obama was born in the United States, period. Now we all want to get back to making America strong and great again. Thank you very much.
Journalists, furious that they had devoted nearly a half hour of coverage to Trump’s veterans event before he addressed the Birther issue they wished to press, asserted on several networks and platforms that Trump had falsely accused Clinton of starting the Birther controversy.
As Breitbart News has long documented, Hillary Clinton supporters were the original “Birthers,” and Obama himself muddied the waters by allowing his literary agent to claim for years that he had been “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia.”
