When Obama departs Wednesday, June 26, 2013, for a visit to Africa this week there will be one notable omission from his travel itinerary: Kenya, the birthplace of his father and home to many of his relatives. Concerns about Kenya’s political situation have trumped his family ties. Kenya’s new president is facing charges of crimes against humanity in the International Criminal Court, accused of orchestrating the vicious violence that marred the country’s 2007 election.
