McCarthy og Verona papirerne

Following the fall of the Soviet Union in the 1990s, enormous amounts of data became available, including the Venona papers:

Coded messages from the KGB and other communist intelligence agencies about communist agents in the United States   (Evans, M. Stanton.  Blacklisted By History:  The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America’s Enemies).

We also know now that CPUSA was a faithful creature of the Soviet Union.  “Far from being mere indigenous radicals working for peace and social justice, as sometimes argued, the party and its members were subservient tools of Moscow-and those who weren’t subversive didn’t stay very long as members.”  (Evans, Pg.  20):

From a composite of all these data, it’s evident the Soviet/Communist operation in the United States, as elsewhere, was vast, sophisticated, and effective, nowhere more so than in seeking positions of official influence.  The Red networks reached into virtually every important aspect of the US government, up to very high levels, the State Department notably included.  All of which was obviously congruent with the warnings of McCarthy and others who sounded the alarm about such matters in the late 1940s and early ’50s.  There was in fact an immense conspiracy afoot, there were secret Communists burrowing in the woodwork, and these Communists were, in case after case, devoted agents of the Soviet Union. (Evans, Pg.  21).
