OBAMA spoke as he was instructed to. There is no mistake here, MUSLIMS say very similar things to CONSISTANTLY DENY the facts regarding WW2 Concentration camp occupants.

Of course they are trying to re-write it.

The generation now doesn't care about history, economics, agriculture, engineering, how they magically have facebook on their phones. Completely clueless.

So, TPTB will magically delete this event from their minds.

Re: Obama Concocts Polish Death Camps
you know, I am totally radical against Obama, but when discussing WWII, the Nazi Concentration Camps in Poland were often referred to as the "Polish Concentration Camps."

As proof, here is a 2011 story about the New York Times banning the phrase "Polish Concentration Camps."
[link to www.economist.com]

While a Polish-American organization might have decided it's best to change the reference, and maybe it is, it's still a fact that it was a commonly used frame of reference for the last 65 years.

This is right up there with Obama saying "my sons" the other day. When I saw the actual clip, it was clear he was making a point about how equality would apply whether he had daughters OR sons.

Obama has done such a horrible job and made so many horrible blunders to boot, can we nail him on the real stuff instead of this nit-picky BS? And that goes for you too Poland!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1369739


The deal is - This is not nit-picky to Poland. It's a serious faux pas. To them it is assigning atrocious acts actually perpetrated UPON Poland TO Poland. EXTREMELY atrocious acts. It's like calling them Nazis or the equivalent. I get that we Americans don't typically get too hung up on semantics - but THIS IS A BIG DEAL TO POLAND.

Re: Obama Concocts Polish Death Camps
He should IMMEDIATELY and unabashedly outright apologize. Simply,

"I am extremely sorry for the mistatement regarding Nazi death camps in Nazi occupied Poland. I would never intentionally attribute the atrocious behaviour of the Nazis to these people that were so oppressed during those years. Please accept my humble apology for the error in speech."

End of story.

I expect that they were not called "Polish Death camps" in Poland.

These camps were located in Poland. That is why they were referred to as Polish Camps. It was their geographical location. Can't change that.

Re: Obama Concocts Polish Death Camps
Not to deny the holocaust, but I think western powers were very close with Hitler. More-so after the end of WWII and the fall of Berlin.

How did the Americans map the nervous system without the help of all the German scientist disemboweling Jewish people.

All Im saying is, they make Hitler look worse than he was (not to say he was nice by any means). All you have to do was learn about WWI to realize how Hitler and Germany ended up where it did.

The president referred to “Polish death camps” while awarding a posthumous Medal of Freedom to Polish professor Jan Karski, a hero of the anti-Nazi resistance. UPDATE: “The President misspoke,” says Vietor. But Polish leader wants a “clearer” apology.
