Figures. #ObamaLovesAmerica So Much He Just Made an Internment Camp a National Monument
After Rudy Giuliani made his comments this week that Barack Obama does not love America the White House tweeted this out:

“Obama loves America” because he announced three new National Monuments.
The only problem is that one of Obama’s national monuments is the Japanese internment camp in Hawaii.
Honouliuli Internment Camp was long forgotten until it was dug up in 2007.
The Honouliuli National Monument is on Oahu. The camp was the largest and longest-operating internment camp, opened in 1943 and closed in 1946, in Hawaii. In August 1943, there were 160 Japanese Americans and 69 Japanese interned there. At the end of the war, some 4,000 POWs were confined at Honouliuli; repatriation efforts began in December 1945 and continued into 1946.
