    The claim that Gross has been "completely discredited" is obviously not true. Poland's official investigative agency corroborated most of Gross's findings although it placed the victim count at about 340. The statement that "Poles were subjected to the same extermination policies as the Jews" is without historical merit. The Germans killed 3 million Polish Gentiles but 29 million survived the war. Anti-Semitism was rampant in pre-war Poland and carried over into the war years. Jedwabne was hardly the only deadly oubreak of pent-up anti-Semitism in Eastern Poland in July 1941. For factual information on the subject, as opposed to Adam's chauvinistic blustering, see "Poland's Threatening Other" by Dr. Joanna Michlic.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
