UPDATE: Screenshots are your friends!

Snap! Did they not get the memo?! The African nation of Ghana was SO thrilled to host Barack Obama and Co. last week that Modern Ghana News gushed a big OOPS. Fourth paragraph down- read it and weep, Barry.

“Mr & Mrs Obama US President Barack Obama is expected to announce a major foreign policy for Africa during his historic two-day visit to Ghana, beginning Friday, July 10, 2009.

Although Mr Obama has made foreign policy pronouncements for some parts of the world since assuming office in January, this year, he is yet to make one for Africa, and his visit to the country, which the White House describes as “one of our most trusted partners in sub-Saharan Africa”, is expected to be used as a platform to unveil his foreign policy for Africa.

“It is expected that President Obama will make a major foreign policy statement on Africa”, Ghana’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Alhaji Mohammed Mumuni, told the Daily Graphic.

For Ghana, Obama’s visit will be a celebration of another milestone in African history as it hosts the first-ever African-American President on this presidential visit to the continent of his birth.

The Air Force One, carrying the 44th American President, his wife, Michelle and two daughters, as well as a retinue of senior US government officials, is expected to touch down at the Kotoka International Airport at 8:30p.m. tomorrow amid tight security by US and Ghanaian security agents.”

You know, this eligibility situation could really get ugly. Anyone for a spot of tea?

UPDATE 7/15/09: The soldier who is the subject of the video clip below has had his deployment orders REVOKED. The military has sent a message to the Dear Leader.
