White House Acknowledges Obama Did Spend Some Time Living With Kenyan Uncle in Cambridge

Obama campaign previously said he had never met his illegal immigrant uncle, but the White House press secretary now says no one had bothered to ask the president


White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters Thursday that President Barack Obama had lived "for a brief period of time" with his Kenyan uncle in Cambridge, Mass., when he was beginning law school in the 1980s.

The uncle, Onyango "Omar" Obama, had been facing deportation, but was granted legal residency this week in Boston.
