Malkin mentions McCloy
YOU ARE VISITING THE OLD MALKIN(S)WATCH. THAT'S FANTASTIC. PLEASE VISIT THE NEW MALKIN(S)WATCH WHEN YOU GET A CHANCE. She's not too impressed.
On the surface, it appears that the 1942 McCloy document undercuts these claims. But a deeper look suggests otherwise...Update: Missed this phrase:
From the body of the memo, it is clear that McCloy was trying to support what some critics considered excessively generous food to the evacuees. The handwritten note, whoever wrote it, was designed to bolster that position. A handwritten note scrawled on the bottom of a memo about food is not the venue for discussing state secrets such as the MAGIC messages which revealed extensive Japanese espionage activity on the West Coast.
The idea that most of the evacuees were not under suspicion is a widely-conceded point. The point about the evacuees not being internees, which is not accepted by many people nowadays, also is correct. So is the point that mob violence posed a threat to ethnic Japanese.So you admit, then, that you're fully in favor of the jailing of innocent people. And the role of hysterics like this in the contemporary threat of mob violence make no nevermind either.
