If you read the above paragraph, it is obvious that Obama is very history-conscious. As far as Obama and the I/P issue, I am undecided. He is either genuine and sincere in his quest for a permanent settlement of the I/P core issues, or he is being disingenuous here and will invoke whatever he considers necessary to manufacture a glossy post-presidential legacy.
I hope for the former, and I fear the latter.

That's the most serious aspect the Holocaust Denial scene, that the freedom of the people is curtailed.
