I have never had a problem with the concept of Germany as a wealthy nation -- with a vast reservoir of social responsibility -- welcoming and caring for needy immigrants.
The costly mistakes were twofold:
1. Creating a large national deception as versus trusting a very intelligent German people with transparency and truth: A missed opportunity.
2. To the degree of insanity, leaving German families unprotected by not doing even cursory checks of immigrants on entry. I was there last October/November. Most immigrants were fine -- too many were not. Once in Germany immigrants took off in every direction. Köln on January 1 and thousands of other tragic incidents could have - and should have - been avoided.
This lack of minimal judgement is "Hillary's emails".
