The Brit, turned Soviet spy, “whose treachery was responsible for the deaths of hundreds.”

The Red Scare is a big deal to many leftists. McCarthyism is the witch hunt always lurking beneath the surface, they say. Well, Soviet spying and recruitment of Americans in government was serious and was at times quite effective. The same is true of Britain.

One such man fooled his bosses at Brit spy agency MI6 for years. He’s back in the news because a speech has been unearthed where he bragged to the Stasi, the East German secret police, explaining how easy it was to fool his British overseers.

The fact is that many Western bureaucrats were working for the Soviets. The guilty are many: a lawyer and key assistant in the State Department, a senior Treasury man, and even a Congressman from New York who sat on the Congressional committee investigating Soviet espionage, the House Un-American Activities Committee.

There was a project within the government, initiated by the Army during World War II, to ferret out Soviet spies.

Many people died because of these traitors and their sympathizers. Don’t let the revisionists convince you otherwise.
