The Democrats' genius front runner continued his non-stop gaffe parade yesterday. Famously he hailed America's "fallen heroes" noting he saw some in the audience.
On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes -- and I see many of them in the audience here today -- our sense of patriotism is particularly strong.
Less famously he placed his uncle then serving in the US military at the liberation of Auschwitz :
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."
Historians would have told him Auschwitz was not liberated by U.S. troops but by those of the Soviet Union.
Seems like more than his uncle belongs in the family attic.
