A History Lesson for Obama

Your “uncle” couldn’t have been “...part of the first American troops to go into Auschwitz and liberate the concentration camps” as it was freed by the Soviets in mid-January 1945. Patton’s Third Army was still engaged in the Battle of the Bulge at that time. A pretty egregious gaffe, I’d say. Very sloppy.

Naturally, the wingnuts are all over this. SDA seems strangely MIA… probably just late to the party. Get with it there, Kate!

Note: Video is rare Russian footage of the liberation of Auschwitz with German narration.

Update: The quote in question (better audio than some clips floating around).
