Worth a Comment: In Life and in Death, Pardoned

It seems strange, but I suppose the living can appreciate the pardoning of the dead.

And certainly if I were Jimmy Winters I would feel my father, Charlie Winters, was vindicated by this pardon, albeit posthumously.

But what I find equally strange is that after WWII, the Neutrality Act was subject to a blind eye policy for several American soldiers who went directly from their European fronts to fight in Israel and that this policy didn't extend to Mr. Winters.

Politics make strange bedfellows, don't they?
