View Full Version : Obama's uncle served in Soviet Red Army!
<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">"I had an uncle who was one of the, um, who was part of the first American troops to go into Auschwitz and liberate the concentration camps. And the story in our family is that when he came home he just went up in the attic and he didn't leave the house for six months."
--Barack Obama, Memorial Day speech, Las Cruces, NM.
Barack Obama's dubious claim is inconsistent with world history and demands an explanation. It was Soviet troops that liberated Auschwitz, so unless his uncle was serving in the Red Army, there's no way Obama's statement yesterday can be true.</div></div>

As usual you cherry pick from a story:
Auschwitz is located in southern Poland, near the city of Krakow. It was liberated by the Red Army on January 27, 1945. At the time, U.S. armies were still on the western borders of Germany, a thousand miles away, regrouping after the Battle of the Bulge. The Americans had not even crossed the Rhine at this point.
The Obama campaign now says that Obama was referring to his great-uncle on his mother's side, and the camp in question was not Auschwitz, but Ohrdruf, which was part of the Buchenwald camp system in Lower Saxony. Ohrdruf was the first camp to be liberated by the Americans on April 4, 1945, and it was visited a week later by Generals Eisenhower, Patton, and Bradley. Eisenhower later wrote to his wife that he "never dreamed that such cruelty, bestiality and savagery could really exist in this world."
I'm not a fan of Obama's ......but any American troops that came to any concentration camp and saw the horrors...would have been seriously affected.
Still totin water uphill I see.
Do they give you an oat bag and a rub down at the end of the day?

Once again...another 3rd grade reply.
If you don't have anything intelligent to say (and you usually don't)...and you don't even have a snappy comeback...why not just crawl back over to AZB, and get some seasoning ????????????????????
No wonder Sonoma gave up on you...you weren't much of a "test" for him....
speaking of tests...here's one that's right up your alley:

Hey Wolfie ...
... how is it that you have me on ignore yet shadow post me after every post?
Can't you even be honest with yourself?
I really don't find that cherry picking, but whatever. It appears that Obama is taking after hillary and "misspeaking" when the timing is right hoping that people will not notice.
LOL, hillary is dodging sniper fire and obama's uncle is liberating Auschwitz. Between the two of them they sure make W and bill clinton look like wimps. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

I visited Buchenwald on several occasions, of course, a few years after the Obamas. Still then, it was a chilling experience and shows what men will do to men. It does make you understand, a little better, why the Jews are so careful with their security.
