Singlaub is a very controversial person but nothing of his controversial or questionable activities appear in the article. Formeruser-82 02:21, 19 December 2005 (UTC).

Thought I'd look at some of these links. No suprise to see HOTR here, complaining that there is not sufficent in the article to demonise this fellow. But two books are quoted. Why don't you read them? 213.122.67.71 07:57, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

It should most definitely be noted that General Singlaub started a new WACL affiliate in the US for the express purpose of excluding the despicable characters listed by Geoffrey Stewart-Smith, these types having polluted the former affiliate. This was done in cooperation with the umbrella WACL organization and continued with a campaign to exclude such types abroad. Having taken Nazi shrapnel with the OSS in occupied France (and China), Singlaub was not about to begin tolerating Neo-Nazis or totalitarians & bigots of any sort. Having always admired smarts and courage and then having read the "Hazardous Duty" autobiograpy, I am most definitely an admirer.—Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.109.152.240 (talkcontribs) 19:47, 2 Jan 2006

Assessment comment[edit]

The comment(s) below were originally left at Talk:John K. Singlaub/Comments, and are posted here for posterity. Following several discussions in past years, these subpages are now deprecated. The comments may be irrelevant or outdated; if so, please feel free to remove this section.

The statement that General Singlaub "was involved in the Iran-Contra Affair," at the very least, is incomplete if not misleading, nor does the bio entry describe his "involvement." It should be noted that the General was asked to testify during the Senate's Iran-Contra Congressional hearing, but his appearance was that of a witness.Ronit52 (talk) 03:54, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

Yamashita's gold[edit]

Post-retirement: The general writes about his own involvement in the search for Yamashita's Gold in his book "Hazardous Duty." He gives credibility to several of the key facts and documentation, which he examined persoanlly. He actually took over as supervisor of the search operations in the Philippines at one point. He references several key names who were involved. This information would be appropriate in this article, with cross-links to the Wikipedia article on Yamashita's Gold.
