More historical obfuscation, lies, and slander from the Bush Administration this past weekend. No surprise as they are the most ahistorical, least intellectual bunch of monkeys and madmen to control the White House since Tricky Dick lied, cheated and stole his way to the top. Shamefully, though, few people have chosen to point out the fact that Yalta, for all its flaws, managed to ensure a lasting if tense peace in Europe for 50 years and avoided the very high risk of ongoing war between the Brits and Americans and the Russians. Thus, it was a pleasure to read this article in Slate, which not only rebukes the President, but highlights just why Yalta was a good thing.

UPDATE: The Rude Pundit says it best.
