A Belgrade court on Thursday quashed the treason conviction of Gen. Draza Mihailovic for his collaboration with Nazis during World War II, politically rehabilitating the controversial Serbian guerrilla commander almost 70 years after he was sentenced and shot to death by communists.Our bold in the above ought to be a clue, but this the network that published fake, but accurate memos about George W. Bush's service during the Vietnam War. And Serbia is a small far away country of which they apparently know little (and even less about communism). At the very end of the article, though, there's another clue;
In 1948, U.S. President Harry Truman posthumously awarded Mihailovic the Legion of Merit for his role in rescuing hundreds of U.S. airmen downed by the Nazis over Serbia.So which is it, Honest Brokers of Information, Nazi collaborator or America's Balkan hero? For the answer, look in the late Stanton Evans' Blacklisted By History. Evans does a good job detailing how Communists (Alger Hiss, Donald Maclean, Kim Philby) who'd infiltrated both the American and British governments, managed to convince even Winston Churchill that Mihailovich was a traitor and to put their support behind the Tito forces (aka, Stalin's guy).
