The Shaken Sheik and the Charmed Contrast

The U-96 was commissioned in September 1940 and went on 11 patrols in the Atlantic Ocean before it was sunk in March 1945 during a U.S. bombing raid on the port city of Wilhelmshaven.
According to German naval records, the boat was a rarity among the submarine fleet because it suffered no casualties during its 11 wartime patrols:

BERLIN -- Lothar-Guenther Buchheim, the German author and art collector best known for his autobiographical novel, "Das Boot," has died at the age of 89, his museum and the office of the governor of Bavaria said.

Serving in the deadly German U-boot navy as a reporter during World War II, Buchheim took part in submarine operations in the Atlantic and Straits of Gibraltar, documenting his time aboard the U-96. He photographed and wrote about his experience for propaganda purposes later writing "Das Boot." He also wrote a three-volume nonfiction work, "U-Boat Krieg" or "U-Boat War," that featured more than 5,000 photos he took aboard the U-96.

On the otherhand, typical of Islamist lies, is Sheik Barack Hussein Obama. If Obama had half the intelligence he presumes, he would have been familiar with this historical bit of public intelligence, which has included shared strategic nuclear ballistic submarine technology since the early 1950s and notice to the U.S. of Britain's Falkland War. Alas, my lawyer sheik, you are not as prepared to be leader of infidels as you masquerade. You are, however, eminently qualified to deceive Islamists.

You have no chance at U.S. presidency, Sheik Hussein Obama. Other than that, you seem to be a very nice lawyer and typical politician.
