Eric Muller links to a Charlotte Observer opinion piece that takes Coble to task. Muller also points to an article that defends Coble, then pretty well obliterates the facts and logic behind it.
Meanwhile, letters keep coming into Coble's hometown paper, some opposing him but many arguing that internment was defensible in the context of the times, and that the war with Japan was brutal. Yes, the war was brutal -- my grandfather's brother, Captain Frank Cone, died in a Japanese POW camp in the Philippines -- but it was fought against Japanese soldiers, not American civilians of Japanese descent. And if it was justifiable, why did the US apologize and pay reparations?
