History is a tool used by politicians to justify their intentions.”   — Ted Koppel

(With the way this is stated it kind of implies a fairly narrow definition of history.  And, I doubt Mr. Koppel actually holds such an opinion.  I think what he probably intended – and, to me, this makes much more sense – to say is:  Politicians use history as a tool to justify their intentions. He was making a statement about politicians, not about history.  But what do I know?  I’m just your average wise guy with a keyboard.  What do you English majors think?  Or, how about Mr. Koppel himself?  Would Ted like to clarify this statement, or set Uncle Rave straight?)   — YUR
