A Kenyan airport official says the American author of a book attacking Barack Obama is being deported.

Jerome Corsi, who wrote "The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality," was picked up at his hotel in Nairobi on Tuesday morning.

Joseph Mumira, head of criminal investigations at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, says Corsi was briefly detained before being taken to the airport for deportation.

Immigration officials say he failed to get a work permit while in Nairobi to launch his book.

Corsi's book attacks the Democratic U.S. presidential candidate as seething with "black rage" and unfit for the presidency.
