@Samisdata, I agree, Hislop is not out to help the US (or anyone else), but it is stil just his word against Assanges. I tend to distrust journalists. Journalists have reported what I have said inaccurately more often than they are done it accurately, and even (the BBC) just made stuff up.
@frontpage, All I said about Shamir is that I had found no cut and dry evidence on his websites, therefore Assange may sincerely believe that he is not.
All the quotes I have found can be explained away. Even the meaning of the apparently damning quote above is misleading. He is talking about why Aushwitz was not bombed during the war and says:
The camp was perceived as an internment facility, attended by the Red Cross (as opposed to the US internment centre in Guantanamo)
There is a huge difference between saying "people thought this at the time" and "it was true".
