The revealers

Jerome Corsi (b. 1946) is a regular WorldNutDaily columnist and non-fiction author. Despite getting a Ph.D. in political science from Harvard, his modus operandi is to cash in on the fringe wingnut conspiracy theory du jour by giving it a veneer of legitimacy. Some of his more infamous works include:

Corsi is also the author of the novel The Shroud Codex, about the Shroud of Turin.[4] It's full of blatant errors that make it look like it was never proof-read after he finished writing it. He also declared that Barack Obama was married to his male Pakistani roommate (!) before he married his wife, which must set some record for combined unsubstantiated Wingnuttery and Homophobia in a single conspiracy theory.[5]And just like most conspiracy memes like this, the gauntlet got picked up by at least one fellow nutter (Scott Lively, no less) who was also dumb enough to think that it was a perfectly valid argument.[6]

He's also convinced that proof of Obama's Kenyan citizenship can be proven by the fact that there was a photo of him on a Kenyan calendar from 2005 when Obama was still a Senator from Illinois.[7] With standards of evidence like that, there's every indication that he's in a competition with Joe Arpaio for the 2012 Booby Prize in late-period Birther silliness.
