suggestion from someone you don't even know (although we were recently in
contact about my attempts to get the U.S. Defense Department to supply
information about an atrocity committed by American troops at the end of WW

the way, but Congressman Porter Goss is assisting).
What prompts my suggestion
is the recent Vatican paper about the Catholic Church and "the Holocaust". I
am sympathetic to the Church, not least because I am a Roman Catholic, but I
found the paper very inadequate. It was more like a press relaese and
contained repeated references to the Nazi "extermination" policies, which are
to say the least, problematical. Neverthess, the paper brought forth a torrent
of criticism from Jews and others (The New York Timeshad a particularly nasty
editorial, among other things criticizing Pope Pius XII for not urging his
flock to "defy Nazi orders" and apparently faulting the Church for not
assuming responsibility for Nazi anti-semitic policies).
