Eisenhower

We are all creatures of the age into
which we were born.
Eisenhower let millions of Russians
die fighting the Nazis in 1942 and 1943.
He ordered cats shot on the White House
grounds.
He for many years patronized the segregating
sands of the Augusta George country club
which hosts the golf masters' tournament.

And yet if he were born in the last 18 years,
he probably would be involved in no violence.

He was only 'following orders'
