Most talkbackers, who I can venture to say, have never conducted an academic research in their life, are taking it upon themselves to judge the research of a,until recently a very renouned, historian. Do you all think that if enough people say that a certain event or act didn't happen then we should all assume that it didn't happen? If you believe in this, then don't go around prosecuting people who say that some other event didn't happen! Any person with intellectual honesty should have NO problem with open and free research. You might not like the message, but don't kill the messenger! Americans suffered a great deal of political persecution during the McCarthy era. People feared for their lives because they were caught expressing a different political opinion. Now we are facing another type of McCarthyism, but this time the victims are historians who'll be afraid to bring us the bad news!
