O Sensei's suspected Class G war criminal status really depends on seeing the list of those affected by SCAPIN 550 (which, apparently, is not in the US National Archives). So seeing what records are available in Japan will be the next course to take.
This is my reference: look at the end for "Appendix A" for the list of categories.

but .... you repeated the point of my criticism -- there is no "Class G war criminal" and the elision itself creates a very improper innuendo. "Class G" is a category under SCAPIN 550 removal/ exclusion criteria -- ONLY "Class A" of that document is for "war criminals."

So, the 1940 and 1942 'vision' statements become very important. There is a very long 'vision' statement in the as yet untranslated parts of Takemusu Aiki. Of course, I will translate this material and discuss it.
I look forward to it.
