"You are unfairly trying to make hay on the basis of a very unique circumstance. This is an instance when the interviewee died before the interviews were publicized. It is also a circumstance where the author died before the putative fraud came to light. If alive, perhaps Ambrose would have a reasonable explanation."
Interviews are not unique. Nor is it unique for participants to die. How do you think Ambrose would have a "reasonable explanation" for fabricating hundreds of hours of interviews??? This is absolutely absurd. Point blank, you are indeed a troll, correct?
ILP, on Ambrose's hundreds of hours of fabricated interviews with Eisenhower: "...Ambrose is not an academic historian. I am surprised anyone would critically scrutinize his writings. Moreover, I am certain people were well aware of Ambrose's "errors", but no one cared...If alive, perhaps Ambrose would have a reasonable explanation."
