    Did the Venona Cables prove Communist infiltration in the US Government?

    Advertisements



    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:

    ...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.
    Considerable dispute? How so?

    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?

    I think it is good to learn all these pieces of history, as obscure as they might seem.

    I agree. Personally, I find the era fascinating.
