NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN (ALMOST)

f37ccbb6_cHM6KzAwMDAwMDA1NWExYWI1NGE_96c96_ffffff0025th January, 1950 : Former State Department official, Alger Hiss, became the latest victim of the wave of anti-communist hysteria sweeping America today, receiving a harsh sentence for perjury, although no evidence was presented to show he was a Communist spy. Hiss denied on oath meeting or passing secret Government documents to Whittaker Chambers, a former Russian agent, and now a prosecution witness, but admitted the typewriter used to copy them had once belonged to him. A jury at an earlier trial was unable to decide if he was guilty, but he was convicted four days ago after a new trial and now plans to appeal, if necessary to the Supreme Court, to quash the verdict.

[ CIAAlthough no specific file on Hiss has been released from the KGB or GRU archives, enough material has been found in other files–in Moscow, Eastern Europe, and Washington–to enable historians to write several new works that leave almost no room for doubt about Hiss’s guilt.” ]

    If A Hiss were black, he would be Obama’s hero.
