It's possible that Jane Fonda and Ronald Reagan sat down for a chat in 
'75, but by that time she'd been Hanoi Jane and he'd been the governor
or California for eight years. And from what I know of US-ZA relations,
I really don't see the DOD inviting Biko to chat with the twenty-four-
year-old Francis Fukuyama. 

I wouldn't call it a hoax -- that's not quite the right word.
