Conspiracy theorists concoct fake report of Obama arrest for drug smuggling

A fake news story that said former President Barack Obama was busted for his links to a drug smuggling operation is part of an extensive and completely unsupported conspiracy theory popularized online.

May 2, 2017, headline on declared, “Just in: Barack Obama arrested in a Japanese drug bust.” The story was flagged by Facebook users, as part of the social media site’s efforts to cut down on fake reports in its users’ news feeds.

The post was exceptionally short, saying that Obama had “informed on his drug-dealing bosses,” citing “Japanese military intelligence.”

It explained that “an airplane filled with Afghan Heroin and North Korean amphetamines was impounded at Argyle International Airport on St. Vincent and the Grenadines in the Caribbean.” Obama had been arrested for some unspecified connection to a ship that was carrying more than 4 tons of cocaine. The proceeds of the future drug sales were to fund ISIS, the post read.

The story is nonsense, because obviously Obama had not been arrested. And he was too busy negotiating $400,000 for speaking appearances to smuggle cocaine.
