Hard to really tell a whole lot from this so far. It's looks like a pretty cursory review, I guess it's being passed on to the next level though. The right will certainly not be happy until they've tarred and feathered this courageous American intellectual. I should say I didn't like the essay Ward wrote about 'little Eichmanns' (although I don't think ignorance is equatable with innocence, and I've always been a believer in Hannah's Arendt claim that bureaucrats are just appendages of 'the beast' so to speak), but nonetheless I don't like the idea of making a great tragedy even more of one by inflaming a lot of people in their time of sorrow. If that's what Churchill really believes (and we have no reason to think otherwise) he should have waited years, instead of one day to write his controversial essay and put it out there.
