“McNamara: I was on the island of Guam in his command in March of 1945. In that single night, we burned to death 100,000 Japanese civilians in Tokyo. Men, women, and children.

McNamara: Well, I was part of a mechanism that in a sense recommended it. I analyzed bombing operations, and how to make them more efficient; i.e. not more efficient in the sense of killing more, but more efficient in weakening the adversary.”
