BARACK OBAMA LIED about his father having served in WWII

Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., born in 1936 would have been 5 years old when the war started and 9 when it ended. Lolo Soetoro was born in 1935 and would have been 6 when the war started and 10 when it ended.

Why did the media cover up this blatant lie?
