"Was it Over When the Germans Bombed Pearl Harbor?"

Al Kamen in the Washington Post compares Rep John Boener (R-OH) to John Belushi's history-challenged character in Animal House. That after Rep Boener's recent take on history:

"For example, Boehner says, ' President Reagan left the White House with America much as he hoped it would be in that first inaugural address. The Nazis were defeated. And in August 1989, Poland became free.'"

Don't stop him, he's on a roll. (WashPost)

If Kamen had read the page before that line, he'd see it's referring to a Churchill quote...

How did Churchill, who died in the 1960s, leave behind a quote about Poland in 1989?
