Irving given probation

David Irving has been given probation by an Austrian judge. According to the NY Times bureau chief for Germany, the Judge apparently has ties to Haider, the leader of the right wing in Austria. I am told that many left of center journalists in Austria are very distressed by this intrusion of pure politics into the judicial process. More as the story develops

Still, it is better he is out, given the principle that history should not be adjuticated in the courtroom.

Politics put him in, politics gets him out (maybe). Looks like Austria has a lot of politics.
