Return of 'POWs'

For some reason--I haven't been able to trace why--a story I wrote more than two years ago has been #1 most popular at The Nation site all weekend and into today.  It was one of a dozen of my annual stories to mark the anniversary of the atomic bombings of Japan every year, which I've written two books about, including the recent Atomic Cover-up.   This story has to do with how the American bomb killed American POWs in Hiroshima (also, by the way, Dutch POWs in Nagasaki), and then we kept it secret for decades.  And see my new piece at The Nation on Caroline Kennedy's recent meeting with A-bomb survivors in Nagasaki (she recently became U.S. ambassador to Japan).--G.M.
