Caiaphas and Truman

(Cross-posted from Vox Nova).
"You know nothing, nor do you consider that it is better for you that one man should die instead of the people, so that the whole nation may not perish."
-- Caiaphas (John 11:49-50).
"Having found the bomb we have used it....We have used it in order to shorten the agony of war, in order to save the lives of thousands and thousands of young Americans."
-- Harry S. Truman, 1945.
