Barack Obama: His Uncle May Have Been in Attic--But Not Auschwitz
DBKP ^ | May 27, 2008 | Mondoreb

Gaffe n. A clumsy social error; a faux pas

Prevaricate v. To stray from truthfulness or sincerity.

Obama and his uncle story

Was Barack Obama's latest whopper--about his uncle liberating Auschwitz and then hiding in the attic for six months: was it a prevarication or a gaffe? What others have said:

"In one of his more egregious and easily demonstrated lies, made even more so by the day he decided to let it loose on, Obama has rewritten WWII history such that the allies liberated Auschwitz." --Purple Avenger, Ace of Spades HQ

"Is there a point at which the media will start calling Barack Obama out for his absolutely stunning lack of historical knowledge, and his willingness to lie at the drop of a hat?" --Charles Johnson, Little Green Footballs

"Either Obama’s uncle served in the Red Army, or he’s spinning Clintonesque lies about Auschwitz to sell his government programs. Hey, it’s for a good cause…but it’s not enough for him. It has to be personal. It has to be all about him." --See Dubya @Michelle Malkin

“Barack Obama: Change We Can Believe In” would be better written, “Barack Obama: Clap Your Hand and Believe Really Hard,” because its content is suitable only for people who believe in fairy tales. --Husaria

Fairy tales? Shades of Bill Clinton!

What politician lets a little thing like the truth get into the way of a good story out on the campaign trail? And Barack Obama--all the talk about The Messiah aside--is nothing if not a politician.

His latest fairy tale is the one about the "Uncle Who Liberated Auschwitz And Had to Spend Six Months in the Attic".

At least Hillary's tall tale--about "How I Braved Sniper Fire and Lived to Tell About It"--had a happy ending.

This (the video) shows what actually was said. To hear what Obama meant to say, we'll have to read the Mainstream press over the next several days--if they choose to publicize this at all.

Tonight, the Obambi camps is saying he misspoke and meant to say Belsen Bergen, but there are really good records as to which division and company liberated which concentration camp. The USArmy photographers and archivists made sure of that.

I wonder if the Obambi camp realizes this.

Here’s an example: “German soldiers, prisoners of the 71st Infantry Division, 3rd U S Army, remove dead victims from a concentration camp and prepare to bury them. This camp near Lambach, Austria...”

The Press will do NOTHING about this ... they won’t examine it at all.
Was Obama’s Uncle serving in the Red Army??? The Soviets Liberated Auschwits; specifically, the 322nd Rifle Division of the Red Army on January 27, 1945.

Well, if that’s what they are changing the story to, they are still wrong...the camps name was Bergen Belsen. Either way, they are so full of $h!t...how the hell can you grow up hearing the story of an uncle liberating a death camp and get the freakin’ name wrong!?!

about his uncle liberating Auschwitz and then hiding in the attic for six months:

This doesn’t add up. If his uncle liberated anything why did he have to live in an attic for six months?

Exactly the point I was going to make. If Obama’s uncle liberated Auschwitz, then he must have been a Russian.

Now that we know that the first part of the story is a lie, how about the second.
There must be medical or employment records of his uncle.
The VA would have medical records at least.
Somehow I wouldn't be surprised that Hussein made up the second part.

Obama is just repeating what his uncle Abe told him of his time in the Flying Hellfish

A quick search shows the British and Canadians liberated this camp.

For Barack’s sake, I hope his great uncle isn’t the same Charles W. Payne who was in the Navy during WWII.

According to one online Obama family tree, Barack's great uncle was also named Charles W. Payne.

The Drudge report will obediently IGNORE this Obama lie since his masters at the Obama camp have spoken.

Tomorrow, the Obama camp will change “Belsen Bergen” to something else...OR that maybe his uncle served in the Canadian Army.

Or something...

Not only that...his mother was an only child, so now the story has become it was his great-uncle. OY! How can so many people be so fooled by this guy.

This fool tries to be something for everyone, consequently he should be nothing to anyone.

An astounding achievement, worthy of the Democrat Fuzzy Historical Recollection Society's Treblinka Square Award.

With the possible exception of those suffering Alzheimer’s or wishing to close the book on his nightmares — warriors can’t forget the name of every hill, valley, village, cross roads, Landing Zone, fire base, FOP, AO, strong point, river crossing, ambush site or jungle trail he ever fought at...

Many times, it is the site where they lost a brother, or a brother was badly injured. You don’t forget places where loved ones where harmed.

To misname a notorious Prison Camp is not an error... it’s a lie.

Obama’s entire MYTH is a lie or a cover up....
We don’t really know the REAL Obama......because they don’t want us to know him.

Is that the latest? A previous thread claimed his uncle Charley help liberate Buchenwald.
