“My father served in WWII, and when he came home, he got the services he needed.”
Really? Obama’s website Organizing for America makes no mention of it.
Barack Obama was born in Hawaii on August 4th, 1961. His father, Barack Obama Sr., was born and raised in a small village in Kenya, where he grew up herding goats with his own father, who was a domestic servant to the British.
Barack’s mother, Ann Dunham, grew up in small-town Kansas. Her father worked on oil rigs during the Depression, and then signed up for World War II after Pearl Harbor, where he marched across Europe in Patton’s army. Her mother went to work on a bomber assembly line, and after the war, they studied on the G.I. Bill, bought a house through the Federal Housing Program, and moved west to Hawaii.
It was there, at the University of Hawaii, where Barack’s parents met. His mother was a student there, and his father had won a scholarship that allowed him to leave Kenya and pursue his dreams in America.
Barack’s father eventually returned to Kenya, and Barack grew up with his mother in Hawaii, and for a few years in Indonesia. Later, he moved to New York, where he graduated from Columbia University in 1983.
So Stanley Dunham, his maternal grandfather, served in WWII, but not his father, or stepfather Lolo Soetero, because of their dates of birth.
Congress.org Letter to Senators Jim Webb & Mark Warner:
Obama says his father served in World War II
Somebody doesn’t know how to do their math very well…
*Does he even know the difference between truth and fabrication?
*Now Barack’s father served in WW ll”
It must be true as Barack said it in a speech! Is he a compulsive liar? Were there no reporters who double checked these statements and called the party on this? They did for everyone else. Why not him? *Barack Hussein
Obama Sr. (Obama’s father)
Died 11/24/82 at the age of 46
He was 5 years old when WW 2 started, and less than 9.5 years old when it ended.
*Lolo Soetoro (Obama’s step father)
Died 3/2/87 at the age of 52
He was 6 years old when WW 2 started, and 10 years old when it ended.
One of these guys must have been the youngest Veteran in the war.
Seeing how Obama wrote a book about his father, (Dreams from my Father) I don’t buy mistaken identity replacing his maternal grandfather for his father. This is just another one of his early lies.
