HE WHO CONTROLS THE PAST… Rosenberg Lies Never Cease.

Robert and Michael Meeropol (they took the surname of their adoptive parents), just 6 and 10 years old when their birth parents went to the electric chair, are now old men, and they have campaigned for decades to clear Julius and Ethel, the only people executed by the United States for espionage during the Cold War.

None can deny that their story is chock-filled with pathos. CBS has them explaining how they asked to see the electric chair where their parents were soon to die, then recounting how there wasn’t exactly a long line of volunteers to take in the orphans of traitors back in 1953.

Getting their father off the hook for his service to Stalin, including passing atomic secrets to Moscow that helped the Soviets get “the bomb” years before anybody in Washington thought they would, became all but impossible in the mid-1990s, when the National Security Agency declassified top secret intercepts that made it crystal-clear that Julius Rosenberg was a Soviet spy.

Read the whole thing.

I’d just add that with a majority of Millennials approving of socialism, and a third of them convinced that George W. Bush killed more people than Stalin, that it may be only a matter of time before the traitorous Rosenbergs get the official rehabilitation they don’t deserve.
