Occasionally a good rumor is entertaining as well as distracting from the often negative barrage of daily world news which is usually slanted to indicate the demise of populism which is far from true. This article involves a story which I certainly hope turns out to be just a funny rumor. The problem is that the source for this story has very deep Intel connections and usually is right on the money. And there are certain background details which create many more questions which seem quite remarkable in scope. A very strange trip to Africa during the last week of June 2013 for the last three American Presidents. In the June 18, 2013 issue of the Africa Review in Kenya, Africa, a very interesting story detailed expected intersecting visits of both former President Clinton and current President Obama to Senegal, Africa. The topic alone has not received any suitable explanation other than the flimsy reason that they were there to commemorate the Al Cia Duh bombing at the US Embassy in Tanzania. And I believe it or not former President George W. Bush is alleged to also have arrived in Africa during this time period. Former US President Bill Clinton is expected in Senegal hours before the arrival of the incumbent President Barack Obama, sources said. The leading Le Populair daily on Tuesday quoted American embassy sources hinting that the two statesmen could likely meet during their stay in Dakar. The sources further said that President Obama was expected to extend his visit initially billed for 48 hours to 72 hours, beginning June 26. Several sitting world leaders, including, former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan and the late Pope Jean Paul II, have visited Senegal over the last decade and toured the famous slave dungeon on Goree Island. This visit of three American Presidents to the continent of Africa during the same time period is unprecedented in history and would appear to require an extraordinary explanation which has not been forthcoming. As if this story wasn't already strange enough, it gets even stranger, a story in CNN Politics on June 22, 2013 stated that President Obama and former President George Bush were to be on the African continent at the same time. Obama flies Wednesday across the Atlantic for a trip that takes him to Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania, marking his second visit to sub Saharan Africa as president. He went to Ghana during his first term. Meanwhile Bush, who's made multiple visits to Africa since leaving office, leaves next week for Zambia, where he is working with his global health initiative to renovate a clinic
that will serve as a cervical cancer screening and treatment center, according to the George W. Bush Presidential Center. While the 44th and 43rd president are not scheduled to meet up, first lady Michelle Obama will attend an event hosted in part by former first lady Laura Bush. The two will attend the African First Ladies Summit, put on by the George W. Bush Institute, in Tanzania on July 2, the final day of the Obamas' trip.
