Refusing to adhere to our national history

For reasons unknown to me, one of the Crooks and Liars frontpagers decided that yesterday was a good day to reminisce about 1951.

Among the items from 1951 that were noted: The Cold War,  MacArthur being relived of his command and the Kefauver Crime Committee Hearings.

Also remembered: “the trial of accused spies Julius and Ethel Rosenburg.”

Excuse me? “Accused”?

Umm, no.

“Convicted” would be the proper term. By both a jury of their peers and by history.

I can understand the want to remember their brethren kindly, but let the factual record reign, please.

    Venona pretty much put this one to rest. Ironically, Rosenburg’s code name was ‘Liberal’.
