The Kennedy KGB letter
HotAir ^ | 10/20/06

Posted on 10/20/2006 8:32:05 PM PDT by bnelson44

So you want answers, eh? Not satisfied with the CNS report?

I’ve got answers.

There’s a new book on Ronald Reagan making the rounds, The Crusader: Ronald Reagan and the Fall of Communism. Its author, Paul Kengor, unearthed a sensational document from the Soviet archives. That document is a memo regarding an offer made by Sen. Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts via former Senator John Tunney, both Democrats, to the General Secretary of the Communist Party, USSR, Yuri Andropov, in 1983. The offer was to help the Soviet leadership, military and civilian, conduct a PR campaign in the United States as President Ronald Reagan sought re-election. The goal of the PR campaign would be to cast President Reagan as a warmonger, the Soviets as willing to peacefully co-exist, and thereby turn the electorate away from Reagan. It was a plan to enlist Soviet help, and use the American press, in unseating an American president.

Think about that.

I received a review copy of The Crusader on Wednesday. The book first references the Kennedy plan on page 206, and includes the complete Soviet memo, dated May 14, 1983, in the Appendix. It’s an eye opener.

If the proposal is recognized as worthy, then Kennedy and his friends will bring about suitable steps to have representatives of the largest television companies in the USA contact Y. V. Andropov for an invitation to Moscow for the interview. Specifically, the board of directors of ABC, Elton Raul and the television columnists Walter Cronkite or Barbara Walters could visit Moscow. The senator underlined the importance that this initiative should be seen as coming from the American side.

Just, not the senator himself. Because collaborating with the leadership of a foreign state to unseat an American president, by whatever means, could be seen by Americans as treasonous. No fingerprints, that’s the rule. Who knew Reagan would win and then defeat the USSR, so this document could see the light of day? The Kennedy KGB memo runs about four pages. If there’s an honest liberal left in the country, it would be nice to have their take on this revelation.

The people in Mass will re-elect him anyway, at least by 80%.

If true, Kennedy should resign and the Republican Governor of Massachusetts appoint someone in his stead.

Will there be an investigation? Not a chance.

Ah, that's nothing! I have access to documents proving that Kennedy admitted to leaving a helpless woman to drown. But Kennedy is a Democrat.
He has Democratic immunity.

Remember this, Kennedy left "that woman" under water for a good 8 hours before calling cops. He went to a hotel, hid for 8 hours, then "Woke up" and had breakfast. I wouldn't treat a dog like that, much less a woman. If I left a dog underwater for 15 minutes I would be in jail for months!!!

This man doesn't think he can get away with murder.

He has shown that he can get away with murder.

Forget it. Modern Democrats are shameless, ruthless, and would elect Joe Stalin if they could.

This information, along with Kerry's e-mail to Iran and info on dems leaking national intelligence secrets to the press would make a great campaign ad with a voiceover eventually saying "If you're still voting Democrat after seeing this ad, you're just stupid".

I guarantee it would get press.....lol.

Now why would you post these articles on a thread about Ted Kennedy's treasonous dealings with the Soviets. It is so inappropriate that it is hard to see there is a good reason rather than an attempt to disrupt this thread and the revelations about Kennedy.

This is OLD news. The Democrats are working with the terrorists to try and win the upcoming election.

They need to find the letter Kennedy and Dodd sent to Osama bin Laden last month.

At a HS football game Friday night, a kid behind me in the stands yelled, "Be as deadly as Dick Cheney's shotgun!" while trying to get his team moving.

I turned back, looked at the kid, and said, "That's not very deadly. Why don't you yell, 'Be as deadly as Ted Kennedy's car!'"

The kid shut up. Those around him started laughing. I chuckled to myself the rest of the game.

Some of us remember this story from the eighties, also that democrat members of congress were in touch with Ortega in Nicaragua, and were encouraging him to hold on until they could weaken Reagan's efforts to dislodge him.

Remember the documents the army found in Grenada linking Dellums to the communist leader of that nation.

Non-story? There's plenty of fodder there for a story.

The CNS article refers to Kennedy offering to arrange for broadcast networks to offer time for Andropov to address the American people. I'd like to know which networks was Kennedy talking to.

Were the TV networks really sympathetic to the Soviets in the 1980's? I'd like to know that, if it were true.

Thanks.

So, it was ABC -- Peter Jennings. Figures.

The logical part of me can't believe that Kennedy was trying aid the Soviets. The logical part of me says that this was an early form of "Republican Derangement Syndrome," today called "Bush Derangement Syndrome."

I have to believe that Kennedy was focused on undermining Reagan and Republicans so Democrats could regain the White House. Either way, the end result is the same -- collaboration with the enemy.

But to Democrats, the ends justifies the means, and we're not supposed to question their patriotism when dissent drives them to collaborate with the enemy.
