Patton didn't want rank and file SS troops at the end of the war charged with war crimes either. He said all the "special sons of bitches" were dead and only what leaders we could find should be prosecuted.

The public didn't care about the SS stuff anyways. That is just another liberal hit on McCarthy.

No, he just wanted them rearmed and aimed east.

Not necessarily a bad idea, but I would've been too Old Testament with SS troops to have any left in my AO.

Those who did care didn't like Tailgunner Joe siding with pond scum. And Tailgunner Joe was looking for an issue to make his own. Not because he actually believed it, but because he was just another political hustler in a town rife with political hustlers.

That is just another liberal hit on McCarthy.

I don't view McCarthy as anything other than another political opportunist.
