I just think this is a matter of being willing to use common sense and objectivity. People don’t “edit” their own diaries like this, nor do they remove a huge portion of its pages. Why can’t you guys just admit what most Americans readily discerned when the diary’s existence and missing pages became known?

Quote:Thank you for sharing that it was taken apart, that was new information to me. I believe it's irresponsible to denigrate Edwin Stanton based upon the selective, sometimes misleading information and speculation you have furnished.

“Selective”? “Selective”? I didn’t “select” the diary as an issue. Stanton made it an issue by suppressing its existence and by not insisting that it be entered into evidence at the conspiracy trial. If Stanton had handled the diary the way an honest, innocent Secretary of War would have handled it, we wouldn’t be having this discussion.

As is well known, Stanton ruled the War Department with an iron hand and was an inveterate micromanager. No one would have dared to take it upon themselves to so severely tamper with the diary without Stanton’s consent.
