Testimony of General Charles W. Sweeney, the only pilot who flew on both atomic bomb missions, providing facts and arguments that history should not be rewritten depicting Japan as the victim, instead of being the aggressor (September 2013)

In 1995 around the 50th Anniversary of the end of WWII, General Sweeney gave a testimony before the Committee on Rules and Administration, U.S. Senate at a time when there was a movement to rewrite history by depicting Japan as the victim, and not the aggressor, of WWII.  General Sweeney argued that when the facts are considered, President Truman’s decision to drop atomic bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki was not only justified by the circumstances of his time, but was a moral imperative that precluded any other option.  For more information on General Sweeney’s testimony, see:  https://eahnc.wordpress.com/2015/08/07/senate-testimony-of-major-general-charles-w-sweeney-may-11-1995/.
