Was claim he was 3 months old during ‘Bay of Pigs’ a slip?
A much-overlooked comment by Barack Obama is getting a closer examination now that Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie has come up short in his plan to take care of a pressing election 2012 concern for the Democrats by producing Obama’s birth certificate from the state’s archives.
The comment, by Obama himself at a 2009 international meeting, suggested he was born seven months earlier than when his official story has claimed all along.
Freudian slip, misstatement or the truth leaking out?
It was in April 19, 2009, at a press conference Obama gave at the Port of Spain in Trinidad and Tobago, Obama responded to an hour-long diatribe that had been delivered by Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega at the meeting the day before, and Obama suggested he was born in January 1961, three months before the Bay of Pigs invasion.
Specifically, Obama rejected Ortega’s attack on the United States for the attempted Bay of Pigs invasion during the Kennedy administration by explaining: “I’m grateful President Ortega did not blame me for things that happened when I was three months old.
The Bay of Pigs invasion happened in 1961 and blotted the presidency of John F. Kennedy, according to a report from his presidential library:
“The disaster at the Bay of Pigs had a lasting impact on the Kennedy administration. Determined to make up for the failed invasion, the administration initiated Operation Mongoose – a plan to sabotage and destabilize the Cuban government and economy. The plan included the possibility of assassinating [dictator Fidel] Castro. Almost 50 years later, relations between Castro’s Cuba and the United States remain strained and tenuous.”
But the Bay of Pigs invasion happened in April of that year and the official birth date given for Obama is Aug. 4, 1961. To have been born three months before the Bay of Pigs invasion would have placed President Obama’s birth date in January 1961.
