I’ve been seeing this, and well, finally will post a tiny something about it and it’s pretty much a “duh” but 70 years later, it comes out. This was in the Times, but I saw a bit more yesterday elsewhere. Here’s a couple of quotes. Basically, this long gone Fahy guy kept 110,000 Japanese Americans in prison camp and should be branded a war criminal.
“Katyal said Tuesday that Charles Fahy, an appointee of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, deliberately hid from the court a report from the Office of Naval Intelligence that concluded the Japanese Americans on the West Coast did not pose a military threat.”
“Scholars and judges have denounced the World War II rulings as among the worst in the court’s history, but neither the high court nor the Justice Department had formally admitted they were mistaken — until now.”
