Ted Kennedy: Stooge or Traitor?
In 1983, when Ronald Reagan was president, Kennedy sent his trusted friend John Tunney to make a deal with then Soviet leader Yuri Andropov. It was Kennedy's hope to undermine Reagan's foreign policy initiatives to win the Cold War by helping the Soviets in a propaganda campaign in America against the Republican administration.
And why? The memo spells it out very clearly; for partisan political advantage in the 1984 Presidential election.
This extraordinary document was dug out the Soviet archives after the dissolution of the USSR. It has never been debunked or challenged as inauthentic. When asked about it Kennedy has never denied its accuracy.
The file was made public in 1992 by a British journalist, but the mainstream American media essentially ignored it.
What are we to make of a United States Senator who secretly sought to aid America's greatest foreign enemy against a sitting American president? You tell me.
