      An excellent hub. While this episode in American history proved highly unnecessary ( no Japanese American was ever convicted for espionage) and certainly was unfair to many Japanese Americans, when you consider actions taken by the government and the public at large, you have to consider the general atmosphere at the time. Nothing happens in a complete vacuum and the steps taken in the early 1940's had the backdrop of a world war.
