Tokyo Rose Dies at 90

Iva Toguri D’Aquino, the Japanese-American convicted of treason in 1949 for broadcasting propaganda from Japan to United States servicemen during World War II as the seductive but sinister Tokyo Rose, died Tuesday in Chicago. She was 90.

“I didn’t think I was doing anything disloyal to America.”
-Iva Toguri D'Aquino

What will the New York Times excuse be?

So, when do we get to convict the modern day "Tokyo Rose" types.... like the "leakers", a few prominent Dems, etc?

You got that right, kate. We have traitors here in this country who do worse with impunity.

What will the New York Times excuse be? "We didn't think we were doing anything disloyal to America. It's every good citizen's job to dissent."

I would love for the NYT to be held responsible just as Tokyo Rose was, but I'm not going to hold my breath.
