Michael Ledeen: The War on Military History

2010/06/17

Stogie apprecionado and history scholar Michael Ledeen points out how the British Museum is airbrushing history, in particular military history.  It’s not just Churchill’s ‘offending’ cigar, it is the Left’s war on the historical record and on reality itself…

“Peace has many dangers, including the potentially fatal belief that all disputes can be negotiated.”

. . .

. . .

If the Truth shall set us free, then the Truth is too dangerous for the masses, obviously.

“It is unclear who is responsible for doctoring the photograph, with the museum – The Winston Churchill’s Britain at War Experience – claiming not to have noticed the cigar was missing.”

Shame on the British Museum.

. . .

    This is why I make a point of smoking cigars while in uniform. Someone’s got to stick up for History and I’m just the man for the job.

    Pass me those clippers, willya?

    Right. Here’s the Zippo, too.

    Now me, I smoke tires. Blessed be the torque.
