Anti-Junta Propaganda

It's a shame that even Greeks with Nationalist sentiments are so easily duped by the all too pervasive anti-Junta hysteria of the Greek political establishment. The Greek language site kryphoscholio.com , is a case in point. I came across a laughable forgery on its site, that attempts to carry on the common leftist-inspired conspiracy theories surrounding the Aprilist Revolution 1967 . Please take a look at this document , which unfortunately I can't copy and paste here in this entry. The first sentence in this forged and fraudulent document from "US Army Headquarters" is the dead-giveaway that this letter is a poor attempt at a hoax:

"In reply to the question you did,"

It is unimaginable that a purportedly official US government document, signed by someone with such an American as apple-pie name as Charles J. Denholm, would use English that is literally and indisputably transliterated from Greek grammar. To anyone with basic understanding of Greek and English, this is, so obviously, written by a Greek with a poor grasp of English , who relies on Greek grammar rules that he transfers into English. I saw such mistakes many times when I used to teach non-Native English speaking Greek students of English. I respectfully ask that the forger of this hilarious document go back to the private tutoring center where he was supposed to be learning English and ask for his money back.

I can't even say nice try.

Thanks bro, but in all honesty,it is not an easy mistake to catch. I have to be thankful to a comrade that originally pointed out the revealing mark of the forger, at first glance I missed it too.

The Chant letter was obtained through the Freedom of Information Act. She mentions many such letters written to Johnson in her book "Nightmare in Athens."
