CIA Hunts Truth About Obama—in New Novel Obama Identity: A Novel (Or Is It?) tackles those pesky conspiracy theories By Kate Seamons, Newser Staff Posted Sep 27, 2010 12:16 PM CDT 9 comments Comments Jacket of "The Obama Identity." (Amazon) (Newser) – One CIA agent will stop at nothing until he uncovers the shocking truth about the president himself. That’s the plot of The Obama Identity: A Novel (Or Is It?), a new satirical thriller from Edward Klein (the man behind The Truth About Hillary) and John LeBoutillier (a former GOP congressman). The book’s tireless protagonist, Theodore J. Higginbothem III, sniffs out the truth behind the many conspiracy theories dogging Obama, from his true birthplace (Kenya?!) to his religion (Muslim, right?). Vanity Fair presents an excerpt that includes Sean Hannity, a not-really-dead JFK, and Obama's ... umbilical cord. Click here to read it.
