NYT: Abe Administration Attempts to Whitewash History

The New York Times has strongly criticized Japan's Shinzo Abe administration for "playing with fire" in its attempts to "whitewash history."
 
In an editorial published this week, the newspaper said that right-wing political forces in Japan, encouraged by the Abe administration, are "waging a campaign of intimidation" to deny its wartime sex slavery issue. 
 
The article rebuked Japan’s political efforts to treat the matter as if it were a lie that has been created by Japan's wartime enemies.  It noted that it has been proven through historical evidence that the Japanese military forced thousands of women to serve in wartime brothels.
