Poland outraged by FBI director’s Holocaust remarks
Poland has demanded an apology for FBI Director James Comey’s allusion in a Washington Post op-ed to Poles who collaborated with Germans in carrying out the Holocaust, CBS News reports. Comey said, “In their minds, the murderers and accomplices of Germany, and Poland, and Hungary, and so many, many other places didn’t do something evil. They convinced themselves it was the right thing to do, the thing they had to do. That’s what people do. And that should truly frighten us.”Which is true; some Poles, Hungarians, Lithuanians, Danes, and people of other Nazi-occupied countries didcollaborate with the Germans in carrying out Nazi atrocities and genocides. But the State Department will tuck its head under its wing and stroke Poland’s ruffled feathers, and Comey will be made to eat his words.
