    For the record, I knew this was likely a losing story.

    It's "historical", to begin with.

    I've written it up here to make good on a promise I've made. But, I did not think this would be an easy sell regardless of the factual merits of the case.

    Still, I think this was an Overton Window worth shoving.

    And, I'd add (since few will read this) -  as a MRFF researcher I hear about a good deal more anti-Semitism in the US military than comes to public light. It's real. Is it growing ? Very possibly.

    •  Yeah, TF, as I mentioned elsewhere in this thread (0+ / 0-)

      the minute I saw this story and read the dismissals of the buildings' design, I thought, "Bullshit. No way was this an accident. Just doesn't happen that way."

      I'm very familiar with the process of how buildings are built. Somewhere in this process, someone with decision power OK'd this - and either the higher-ups (if there were any) didn't look closely enough, or were complicit. There are no other possibilities.

      Well, let me amend that: The ONLY other possibility might be (although it is EXTREMELY unlikely) that the buildings were designed and built in stages, and someone deceptively drew the successive site plans to minimize or omit the position of the other buildings' configuration from those drawings. That is a very remote possibility, but a possibility nonetheless - and in any event, it still indicates culpability.
