One Yale degree in history to go, please.

Bush viewed aerial photos of the Auschwitz camp taken during the war by U.S. forces and called Rice over to discuss why the American government had decided against bombing the site
"Condi, why didn't we bomb Auschwitz?" "Uh...I don't know, Mr. President. The State Dept wasn't..." "Well, why don't you know? Laura, why didn't we...?" "George, why are you asking this now?" "What do you mean?" "You seem to think the rest of us should be walking history books, but it never occurred to you until now that Auschwitz wasn't particularly addressed by the Allied powers. What this says is you've never given the Holocaust two second's thought until someone dragged you there, and now you're like, all up in arms." "Laura, I... Look! A squirrel!" "There are no squirrels on Air Force One, George. Well, maybe one."
