    "One of General MacArthur’s first demands from the Japanese will undoubtedly be the speedy return of Lieutenant-General Wainwright and other Americans captured in the Philippines. An Army spokesman said 15 generals, 113 colonels and a number of enlisted men were with Lieutenant-General Wainwright, who was last reported in Hoten prison camp in the Mukden area."

    I sometimes think that the new Shogun would have been happy to have the Japanese, the press, and nobody else on the Big Mo when the signing took place.

    He decided to set US policy without consulting the President. What's wrong with that?
