In response to my post, in which I indicated that the National Archives
were not prepared to release the original Himmler tapes but were
prepared to sell a certified copy thereof, and in which I discussed
issues arising from that, Kenneth McVay OBC wrote:

You have not reached an agreement with Mr. Edeiken. Why is that?

Please contact Mr. Edeiken, and come to an agreement, so that we may
sign a contract in London. Without such an agreement, there is little
point in contacting me.

Thanks for the information - all of which I am already well aware of.

This poses several interesting questions:

(1) If McVay knew that the National Archives would not release the
original Himmler tape, as he claims, why did he issue the challenge in
the first place?

(2) Is McVay now trying to distance himself from his challenge?

(3) Will Mr Edeiken step in and address the points from which Mr McVay
has fled?

(4) Are Nizkor prepared to attempt to persuade the National Archives to
make the original tapes available or are they not?

I now publicly challenge Mr Edeiken to address all the points made in my
original post 'Himmler Challenge Update', given that his master does not
wish to discuss the matter with me. If he, too, does not have the guts
to make his full response in alt.revisionism, I will post whatever
response comes my way on his behalf.
