Commander Kelly presents a Crimson Christmas cracker -- a World War II trivia question to stump your friends...

Question: Which Harvard graduate authorized the assassination of another Harvard man, which was duly executed in the course of World War II?

Answer: President Roosevelt (Harvard class of 1903) authorized the assassination of Admiral Yamamoto (graduate studies Harvard 1919-1921).  A Navy squadron of P-38 Lightnings made up the firing squad on April 18, 1943.  His corpse was later found in the jungle at the crash site with two 50 calibre wounds.
