Geese, Part 2

Apparently it wasn't just a slip of the tongue when Senator Messiah said his uncle helped liberate Auschwitz (he later backtracked and said it was Buchenwald, I believe). Turns out that the speech in 2002 which has caused so many wet dreams amongst our friends on the left was rife with the same mistakes, this time referring not to an uncle, but his grandfather.

My grandfather signed up for a war the day after Pearl Harbor was bombed, fought in Patton's army. He saw the dead and dying across the fields of Europe; he heard the stories of fellow troops who first entered Auschwitz and Treblinka. He fought in the name of a larger freedom, part of that arsenal of democracy that triumphed over evil, and he did not fight in vain. I don't oppose all wars.

Treblinka was never liberated by Allied troops, or Russian ones; it was closed in 1943. Sleeping through Geography and History is not good when running for president. Does this guy even try to keep track of the whoppers he keeps feeding us?
