There is currently a lot of controversy being raised about the Texas School Board's inclusion of certain topics to be covered in US History. Many feel that students are being exposed to "conservative revisionism".
One such controversial topic that students will be required to learn about is the release of the Venona Project cables, a top secret NSA project which documented Soviet espionage within all levels of US Government.
One OP-ED piece mentions the topic:
Considerable dispute? How so?...There will be a requirement that lessons on McCarthyism note that "the later release of the Venona Papers confirmed suspicions of communist infiltration in U.S. government." There is considerable dispute among historians about what the papers, which document communication between the former Soviet Union and its spies, show about Soviet involvement in U.S. government.
When one examines the list of American Citizens mentioned in the Venona Cables, you see some very prominent names - even high-ranking government officials.
Do people think that it is wrong to include the Venona Project in the study of American History?
