You can't make this stuff up.

 

A State Department spokeswoman has been ridiculed for citing the D-Day invasion as an example of America’s “very strong relationship” with Germany.

“We have a very strong relationship with the government of Germany,” Heather Nauert said.

“Looking back in the history books, today is the 71st anniversary of the speech that announced the Marshall Plan. Tomorrow is the anniversary of the D-Day invasion. We obviously have a very long history with the government of Germany, and we have a strong relationship with the government of Germany.”

One Twitter user said: “Dear @StateDept: You have six months to educate Heather Nauert on the history and significance of Pearl Harbor before she cites it as an example of strong US-Japan relations. Get to it – you may need some time to catch her up.”

So, the crossing of the Rhine and the Oder (by the Allies and the Russians) were efforts to shake hands?   Officially, the Marshall Plan was initiated on April 3, 1948 in an effort to boost European economies and stem some communist advances.  An interesting point in the Marshall plan, Russia (ok, the USSR) and other communist regimes in Europe could also have applied for aid.

I thought this was an Onion story.  It's always worth checking when the administration is involved.
