You are simply mis-reading what is stated in that document. The US citizen parent had to be resident in the US for ten years (prior to the birth). How can I be so certain? I am in a similar category, but was born outside the US to a US mother and a father who had not been ten years resident in the US. I had, since birth, US citizenship until I renounced a few years ago.

For people born (like President Obama) in 1961 outside the US with only one parent who is a US citizen, the other parent "must have resided in the United States for at least ten years, at least five of which had to be after the age of 16" for the child to be a US citizen. Obama's mother was 18 when he was born, and his father was not a US citizen, so if he was born outside the US, he is not a natural-born citizen.

(I make no claim that President Obama was actually born outside the US, I am just correcting the AC's mis-statement of citizenship law. Source: )

On top of that, the Washington Post is now saying that the intrusion was "not linked to any Russian government effort to target or hack the utility" -- either it wasn't the Russians, or they didn't mean to infect that utility.

Can we all now agree the original story was the kind of Fake News the Washington Post and other establishment media outlets have been warning us about?
