The Six Million Person Question
This is a bit off topic, but if the Supreme Court can say what the constitution is, then I can say what this blog is (as long as I don't tick off Pat too much). Mark Bowden, the author of Black Hawk Down, and more recently Guests of the Ayatollah, has a great editorial today in the Wall Street Journal on Ahmadinejad and the Holocaust. These are both subjects that come up a lot here, and besides, this paragraph has a great tie-in to 9/11 denial (emphasis added):
The president of Iran is a man for whom facts are mere fodder for political purposes, but there is little political advantage in making a fool of yourself on a world stage. So he has now retreated to the last refuge of all intellectual scoundrels, calling for "more research." And he has adopted a slightly different critical tack, which he repeated in numerous forums during his recent trip to New York. In Time it went like this: "I said that during World War II, around 60 million were killed. All were human beings and had their own dignities. Why only six million?"
Hey, we are "just asking questions".
