The Messiah still doesn't know history

While buffoons like these make a stink about John McCain still using the term "Czechoslovakia," their "57-state-USA" Messiah has once again shown his knowledge of 20th century history is ... pretty inept. The recent New Yorker (yes, the one with the controversial cover) article has Obama saying in 2002

". . . 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. . . ."

James Taranto corrects him:

In fact, Auschwitz was liberated not by Patton's army but by Zhukov's. Like all of Poland, the death camp was taken by the Soviets, not the Americans. As for Treblinka, also in Poland, it was never liberated. In 1943, after a failed uprising, the Germans closed Treblinka and forced the captives to destroy the facility.

Next we'll hear of another Obama relative that worked hand-in-hand with Robert Oppenheimer on the Manhattan Project!

Meanwhile, a noted Democrat also muffs up and uses "Czechoslovakia."
