Saltzman Shows Open Disregard for JA Incarceration

While casting his vote in favor of the new Joint Terrorism Task Force resolution, Commissioner Dan Saltzman showed extraordinary disregard for the light of Japanese Americans incarcerated during WWII as well as for the testimony of our honored community representative, Henry Sakamoto.

Specifically, Commissioner Saltzman stated, "…and while the FBI has a checkered history, it doesn’t do us any good to be sitting here and talking about things that happened 60 years ago or 50 years ago."

Dan Satlzman comments and Henry Sakamoto testimony can be seen below.
