VP Cheney's Chief of Staff asks about Birkenau

At a reception yesterday, Scooter Libby, Dick Cheney's Chief of Staff asked what a first time visitor to a camp should keep in mind on such an occasion. I told him to remember that without the help of engineers, architects, doctors, lawyers, and other highly educated people, this place and all its attendant horrors would have been impossible.
