I thought you were disputing Hitler's admiration for America's 
treatment of the American Indian.  The documentation for that is in 
the book I reference.

I'll look for an article published around 2003 acknowledging that 
the U.S. Army infected blankets with smallpox before giving them to 
the Cherokee, who had been rounded up at gunpoint in the middle of 
the winter.  It made news in the Native American community at the 
time I worked in Native American Studies at a state university.  The 
acknowledgement was not widely published in the predominantly White 

I'll look up the Native American biologist, an old friend of mine, 
and get the reference for you.  We laughed heartily because the 
chair of the Anthroplogy department at the university denied that 
smallpox could be transmitted by blankets.  He liked to think that 
the rumors about the smallpox-infected blankets were a scientific 
impossibility.  Of course, he didn't know much about biology

Thanks for clarifying the documentation you desired.  I hope 
Hitler's second book was informative.

Best regards,
