According to this AP Report, the Pentagon ignored (whether deliberately or inadvertently is a matter of debate) a key piece of evidence regarding American military orders in the chaotic early days of the Korean War.

How much attention does this issue gain in Korea? It certainly doesn't gain much attention in the United States. I know we learned (briefly) about Mai Lai in high school history, but the Korean War in general, and any acts like these, were certainly never touched on. Have there ever been any "textbook controversies" involving US textbooks like there are between Korea, China, and Japan? Also, it puts Congress's recent actions against Japan into a new light. How can we legitimately tell Japan they must rectify their history if we refuse to do the same for our own?
