He was an executive of Mitsubishi Motors at the time. One of the few Freepers I imagine who saw Emperor Hirohito as well, live, on about five different occasions, and also met his son.
Nice smiling people; you'd never know their policies or those of their relatives were responsible for so much human misery in our modern history.
After reading a couple of letters from a serviceman of how nicely he conducted himself in the hospital, I felt bad after I found on the net he had been hanged.
He may have done a lot of wrong, but I would like his daughter to have some comfort.
And hopefully 50 years after we kick the CRAP out of the Islamofascits fanatics and depose the tyrannical despots who support them we will be able to go to Iraq/Iran/Syria/ Afghanistan/Egypt, etc and wonder why such nice smiling polite people were responsible for so much human misery.
