Why can't the Native American Indians be connected to Israel?

Joseph Smith claimed that the Native American Indians were decendants of the Lamanites talked about in the Book of Mormon, and the Book of Mormon claims that the Lamanites came from Israel. So why is it that Native American Indian DNA don't have any connection with Israel or the Hebrews?

Simon Southerton addresses this very issue in his book called "Losing A Tribe."
Recently Simon Southerton responded to critics (mostly with connections to the LDS church) rebuttal of his book. His responses can be viewed at http://www.irr.org/MIT/southerton-response.html.
