Koba the Dread

While I am on the subject of murderous thugs and the academics who do their PR work, i.e., Columbia's flack job for Ahmadinejad, this isn't the first time American "academics" carried water for a totalitarian tyrant. Also, Check out this previous post concerning Valdimir Putin's efforts at rehabilitating of Josef Stalin.

For more, I highly recommend this symposium, really a 6-way interview between historians hosted by Jamie Glazov at dealing with historian Geoffrey Roberts new book Stalin's Wars: From World War to Cold War, 1939-1953 and the historical and moral issues surrounding the attempts to rehabilitate "Uncle Joe's" reputation.
