On his radio show today, Dennis Prager talks to Rev. Wilson Miscamble, Professor of History at Notre Dame. His new book is The Most Controversial Decision: Truman, the Atomic Bombs, and the Defeat of Japan.
Aug. 30, 2011, Dennis said: “There is a subject that has troubled me my whole thinking life, which began on my 14th birthday. Before 14, I did not think. Not the actual act but the reactions to it have plagued me. I’m talking about the United States decision to drop atomic bombs on Japan. I’ve always been morally at peace with the decision. It is now de rigeur to lump Hiroshima with Auschwitz, as though they are moral equivalents.”
