But, see, CUP bowed to a *perception* of a terrorist threat based on the
sketchy assumptions of one (perhaps a few) employee of the press in
Athens, without first investigating the *real* nature of any potential
threat. Several academics, Greek and those who work in Greece, have come
forward after CUP's actions to denounce their pre-emptive assumptions
about the situation in Greece--many of them found such assumptions
insulting to Greece and the Greek people. The full scoop on what's
happened is in the H-SAE archives, I'm sure...
