BLITZER’S BLOG: New details on Obama’s Hawaii birth
By Wolf Blitzer, CNN
(CNN) - For some of the so-called birthers out there, there’s probably nothing that will convince them that President Obama was actually born in Hawaii.
But for those who might still have even a little bit of an open mind, they should read David Maraniss’ new book on the president, “Barack Obama: The Story.” Maraniss provides new details of Obama’s birth, including a contemporaneous letter referring to the birth of a baby to a Caucasian mother and an African father.
Maraniss reports that the future president was born August 4, 1961, at 7:24 p.m. at the Kapi`olani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital in Honolulu. Dr. David A. Sinclair delivered the baby.
Sinclair’s colleague Dr. Rodney T. West remembers hearing from Sinclair that “Stanley had a baby,” a reference to the mother, Stanley Ann Dunham Obama. - SNIP - FULL CNN BLOG HERE.

Flashback from Free Republic post titled: SNOPES previously claimed Dr. Rodney West was Obama OBGYN to dispute BC was false!
“I may be the only person left who specifically remembers his birth. His parents are gone, his grandmother is gone, the obstetrician who delivered him is gone,” said Nelson, referring to Dr. Rodney T. West, who died in February at the age of 98. Here’s the story: Nelson was having dinner at the Outrigger Canoe Club on Waikiki Beach with Dr. West, the father of her college friend, Jo-Anne. Making conversation, Nelson turned to Dr. West and said: “‘So, tell me something interesting that happened this week,’” she recalls. His response: “Well, today, Stanley had a baby. Now that’s something to write home about.” The new mother was Stanley (later referred to by her middle name of Ann) Dunham, and the baby was Barack Hussein Obama. - FULL FR THREAD HERE.

*** So much for Maraniss providing "new details of Obama's birth" unless you consider regurgitated disinformation new details...
What Maraniss Obviously Missed
By Jack Cashill
I read the lead in the review of David Maraniss's much discussed new book, Barack Obama, the Story, by Ben Smith of Buzzfeed of with at least one eyebrow arched.
"David Maraniss's new biography of Barack Obama is the first sustained challenge to Obama's control over his own story," writes Smith, "a firm and occasionally brutal debunking of Obama's bestselling 1995 memoir, Dreams from My Father."
Although those of us in the blogosphere lack Maraniss's resources and access to friendly witnesses, we have been debunking Obama's Dreams for the last four years. As I note in the introduction of my 2011 book, Deconstructing Obama, "In unlocking [Obama's] past, I have discovered that the story that Obama has been telling all his life varies from the true story in ways big and small."
Maraniss documents those variations better than I ever could have. "I counted 38 instances in which the biographer convincingly disputes significant elements of Obama's own story of his life and his family history," writes Smith. According to Maraniss, and this comes as a revelation to Smith, Obama falsified his bio largely to portray himself as "blacker and more disaffected" than he really was.
What is missing from the Maraniss book, however, is any real understanding of how Obama came to do this. A little background is in order here. It just so happened that Barack Obama was not the only black icon in his neighborhood to write a best-selling memoir. Boxing great Muhammad Ali produced one long before Obama, and he too with more than a little assistance. In Ali's case, that assistance has been well documented by black scholar Gerald Early.
