President Obama touts that his administration is the “most transparent” in history, but what is becoming increasingly clear about this White House is an ongoing struggle with telling the truth.

White House press secretary Jay Carney on Thursday admitted that previous claims that the president had never met his Kenyan uncle, Onyango “Omar” Obama, were untrue.

As reported on BizPac Review, while testifying at his immigration hearing this week, the uncle said that the “president had stayed with him at his Cambridge apartment for three weeks when he came to attend Harvard Law School in the 1980s.”

Testimony that contradicts the earlier claim made by the White House.

At a press briefing on Thursday, Fox News’ Ed Henry pointed to a report in the Boston Globe where the White House now acknowledges that what the uncle is saying is true, and asked Carney “how can you make that kind of mistake?”

The Boston Globe reported on Thursday:

“The president first met Omar Obama when he moved to Cambridge for law school,” said White House spokesman Eric Schultz. “The president did stay with him for a brief period of time until his apartment was ready. After that, they saw each other once every few months, but after law school they fell out of touch.

Carney explained that the first time the White House was asked, they “looked at the records, including the president’s book,” but said that “no one spoke to the president.”

So we are to believe that when making the first statement that the two men had never met, no one bothered to ask President Obama — seriously, the chutzpah of this administration is off the charts.

    I just can’t believe a lie could come out of the White House. Tell me this isn’t true.

    Why did anyone think our president or his staff was going to be honest about the big or important things the presidency requires, when again and again they can not be honest about the little things?

    Oops! Another Bart Simpson moment in the Obama administration…

  • Lorraine Stuart

    What else is new. But of course the liberals will by this nook line and sinker. They believe anything the White House says. That is why we are in this mess.

    Better watch out Omar. Everyone else that knew the president in his younger years has ended up dead, including his sister that he grew up with in Indonesia who said that she couldn’t wait to meet him as an adult and see if he still had the same scars and limp that he did as a child from falling out of a tree while they played. She never survived another day after that comment.

    I love that his autobiography is now being touted as a work of
    fiction by none other then the president himself. LOL..what a joke!
