There are now two Barack H. Obama Foundations. The first one was founded by the President’s brother Malik Obama, who has subsequently been tied to terrorism (barackhobamafoundation.org). The most recent one was founded for the purpose of handling President Barack Obama’s future library and is being led by close Obama friend Marty Nesbitt, who apparently misses the irony – and the potential headaches for the president.

(AP) — The search for a home for President Barack Obama’s presidential library is officially underway.
With Obama’s blessing, top supporters are launching a foundation that will develop and build the library, which will both house his presidential records and serve as a monument to his legacy.
The nonprofit Barack H. Obama Foundation will be led by Marty Nesbitt, a close Obama friend from Chicago, and Julianna Smoot, a former White House social secretary and top official in Obama’s re-election campaign.
The Barack H. Obama Foundation headed by Malik Obama is also identified as being a nonprofit. It’s 501(c)(3) approval was granted by Lois Lerner and such status was backdated thirty-eight months. The decision to use the same name as the foundation led by Malik Obama is a curious one because of the potential to bring unwanted attention to the President. A quick Google search of “Barack H. Obama Foundation” (Click here for Image Search) reveals much of our findings. Anyone searching for the library foundation might be in for quite a surprise.
Then again, the Clinton Foundation, which was heavily involved in the construction of the Clinton library, employed a Muslim Brotherhood operative for five years who is now sitting in an Egyptian prison – Gehad el-Haddad.
