Oooh, we're going to play semantics.

I believe Goering actually ends up in charge and regardless of what he said, there are numerous documents to support otherwise (go ahead and read them, some fascinating stuff).

The idea that he was viewed as a buffoon by a lot of Germans is news to me. Which germans? Middle class? Elites? Former Nazi party members? Who exactly?

And even if true, Tojo, who was the PM of Japan at that point was placed on trial from an even more fanatical anti-US country. Where was the uprising?
