    She "glorifies" no such thing.

    She objects that the violence was highly directed, publicly laid out in the 1919 "25 Points," and managed to the nines with then-modern control systems.

    Look at the records the concentration camps were required to maintain. They were run as tight as bank.

    Where Eliana Johnson fails is that she goes nit-picking -- finding a distinction without a significant difference. "Senseless" from the point of view of the survivors and relatives is accurate for the President in that context.

    From the point of view of the Nazis, of course not. The Nazis over-rationalized their every political commitment. Murder. Hatred. Theft. No problem, they had rationalizations for everything.
