Obama rewrites WWII history
Update: WaPo Quotes Him Making Lesser Claim
Update: Disregard My Last Update, He Said His Uncle Helped "Liberate" Auschwitz

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.

...Obama also spoke about his uncle, who was part of the American brigade that helped to liberate Auschwitz...
Auschwitz of course is in Poland. It was liberated by the Red Army on Jan 27 1945. Poland, on most maps is usually placed to the east of Germany, although we may need to investigate the geography textbooks the Messiah used as a child...

The Allies were wrapping up the battle of the bulge in late January of 1945 -- the Rhine crossings were still well into the future when Auschwitz was liberated. The first, the Remagen railway bridge which was discovered intact, was crossed on March 7 1945.

Of course it goes without saying that the media has thus far failed to call the Messiah on this apparently obviously outrageous lie. Unless Obama's "uncle" was serving in the Red Army, its a pretty safe bet he was many hundreds of miles from Auschwitz on its day of liberation.

Update [ace]: The WaPo quotes him as claiming his uncle was one of the first US troops to enter Auschwitz, with no claim of liberating it:

"In World War Two we didn't have the concept of post traumatic stress syndrome. People had to basically handle it on their own," he said. Referring to an uncle who had been one of the first U.S. troops into Auschwitz, the concentration camp, Obama said: "The story in the family is he came home and just went up in the attic."

Update [ace]: Duh. Rather than rely on a paraphrase from the WaPo I should have just watched the video, below. He does claim his uncle was one of the first troops to "liberate" Auschwitz.

Apologies for getting this wrong and also for undermining Purple Avenger without doing sufficient checking.
UPDATE: VIDEO BELOW THE FOLD [lauraw]:
