    When this kind of thing comes to light it should be quietly investigated to insure that it has stopped and unless there is a positive reason it should remain in the files unless those responsible can be brought to justice.

    Otherwise it's more worthless Left-wing garbage.
    So you trust the government to self regulate on these issues? What makes you think they would stop doing it if no one were to call them on it?

    Also, doesn't matter who was president or which party was in charge. This is a terrible thing to have done.
    Certainly it matter who was in charge, otherwise the entire American people will be held responsible, which be complately unfair.

    The Truman Administration was in charge and what they did was evil. He was also a Democrat, but we should not necessarily hold that fact against the Democrat Party of today.

    This is wrong, and I'm ashamed that the government would do this.

    It was a Democratic Administration as well as a Democratic President. That is the truth. It was not the American people who should be held responsible.

    What's wrong with pointing that out?

    It was also the present day Democrats who apologized. Is there anything wrong with that also?

    Why not? It was the American people that elected the government.

    I think it is silly to assume that the American people would have gone along with it, therefore it is probably correct to place the blame on the Truman Administration.

    Not all the American people, just those who voted for the Democrats. Others might have voted for Republicans or other parties. You do seem to want to blame ALL Americans though. Why is that?

    Even most Democrats of the day had no idea this was going on and, if they did, I'm sure they would be as horrified as anyone else.

    This is not a Republican or a Democrat thing we all bear this.
