This is the DirecTV info blurb for the PBS American Experience episode on the The Berlin Airlift:
The United States initiated a massive airlift of supplies to Berlin in 1948, causing a hostile relationship between the US and the Soviet Union.
The US “initiated”? And “caused”?
For the record, what I’ve seen of American Experience has been generally positive and the web sites with additional info and teaching guides are pretty good. This is probably just a DirecTV bit written by an ignoramus.
Also for the record, my great aunt received a medal (I think from the government of West Germany) for her service during the airlift. Murdoc really should find out more about that. I didn’t learn of it until after her death.
