Comrade Kennedy Rats Out the USA
A powerful US Senator is secretly communicating with America's military enemies. The Senator offers the enemy his political help in defeating America's defense plans and forwarding the enemy's objectives. He also suggests that the enemy's actions be coordinated (secretly, of course) with the Senator's in time with upcoming American elections. He does all this WHILE we are at war, while our soldiers are in harm's way and while every single American lives under direct threat of military assault from the very government the Senator is helping.
Is this news? Not at the Boston Globe, it's not. Especially when the enemy is the Soviet Empire, the American president is Ronald Reagan, and the US Senator violating his oath of office and betraying his nation is Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Kremlin).
If you haven't seen the media coverage of Sen. Kennedy's secret communications with Yuri Andropov in 1983...well, you must be a Boston Globe reader. Don't bother trying to justify the Globe's decision to completely ignore this story. It's the Globe. It long ago abandoned any pretense of objective journalism, and now contents itself to cheerleading for vacuous liberals and denouncing any journalism that upsets Islamists.
However, even the Kool-Aid drinkers at the Globe have to be feeling a faint spasm of guilt over ignoring a story about a local US Senator and his borderline treasonous activity on behalf of a Communist empire that, at the time, held 100 million people against their will. Secret letters to the leader of France about Merlot production would be bad enough. But Sen. Kennedy's collusion to advance a government of gulags against the defense of America is astoundingly offensive.
Isn't it? Or is the Globe's motto really "Any enemy of America is my friend?"
