What is up with Reuters and Ancestry.com? Obama is the son of a white woman and a Kenyan, and actually descended from Middle Easterners who were actually slave owners! How could they possibly come up with this truly remarkable linkage to the “first documented African” that was enslaved? Quite dubious that it is the "fist" documented. So, because he changed his name to Dunham they are related?

From the Reuters story (http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/10/02/us-ancestry-permir... )
“Ancestry has about 2 million paid subscribers. The website said in July it had discovered that U.S. President Barack Obama is the eleventh great-grandson of John Punch, the first documented African enslaved for life in the American colonies.”

Perhaps locking down all his actual birth and academic records opens this up as another political untruth? I am seeing considerable totally unbelievable and absolutely blatant lies in the mainstream media, but this one genuinely challenges my previous respect for the integrity and accuracy of Ancestry.com. So his linkage to an enslaved ancestor is through his white mother? Give me a major break, when do the spin and lies stop?
