Gen. Wojciech Jaruzelski died on May 25, 2014. The last communist leader of Poland spent his waning years trying to convince the world he was a reformer and not a communist. Sorry General, you can't re-write reality. Something called the truth always gets in the way.
As an American of Polish descent I watched the events in Poland in the 1980s and rejoiced in their escape from Communism. It is hard to believe it has been 25 years.
Please link over to this very good article by Andrew Nagorski who was actually there in the 1980s and recently met with the General.
