Feb. 21, 1942: The Times editorial page praises the Japanese evacuation while scolding the government for its slow response.

I think this is my favorite quote:

… it is important to remember in case any situations of the kind arise in the future that the mishandling of this vital problem has jeopardized the security of the whole Pacific Coast.

As for the evacuees, the best way for them to serve their country is to leave quietly, The Times says.
