yahoo news country of birth kenya president obama Yahoo News says President Obama's country of birth is Kenya, changes it to 'ancestral homeland'President Obama has an upcoming trip to Africa planned and in reporting about the cost of said trip, Yahoo News referred to Kenya as “the country of his birth” (screenshot above, courtesy of the Huffington Post).

The revised article now refers to Kenya as President Obama’s “ancestral homeland” and has an acknowledgement of the error, saying a previously version of the article “incorrectly identified the president’s birthplace.”

In case you were, oh, we don’t know, living in a cave the past few years, there was quite the public outcry from “birthers” for several years, continually insisting the president was not a U.S. citizen. President Obama finally released his long-form birth certificate in 2011, which identifies his birthplace as Hawaii.
