Case closed: The Rosenbergs were Soviet spies - Los Angeles Times
I editted the thread title. Please keep personal attacks out of thread titles,or put them in the Flame Zone. There was absolutely no reason to put Jillian's name in the thread title of this article.
My bad. For the record, I wasn't trying to flame Jillian - I remembered a discussion from a year or so ago .about the Rosenbergs and a paper Jillian wrote in law school.
Probably, jillian was defending co-ethnics. If Jews murdered the Pope, other Jews would defend the act.
That's actually very interesting. It does look like Ethel Rosenberg may not have been involved or at least did not do anything warrenting execution. I wonder why Sobell decided to confess.
I remember that discussion, too. I was talking about the case from an evidentiary perspective.... since much of the conviction was based on testimony about a desk with a secret compartment which was never produced at trial. And much of the testimony came from Ethel's brother who, on reading the transcript, appeared to lack credibility. But Judge Kaufman was so afraid of weenies like WJ saying he was protecting a "co-ethnic" that he allowed a disgusting trial.
It also now appears that Ethel's sister in law was the one who should have been put to death rather than Ethel. Ethel's own brother sold her out.
And you should be really afraid of people who do things like that type of prosecution... because regardless of what actually happened, the trial was a sham.
That's the most important thing to be learned from this.
you bet--to hell with accurate history !
what accurate history is that? that Ethel Rosenberg was basically killed by her own brother?
Or that the nasty commie jew bitch deserved to fry?
that they were guilty
And ends don't justify the means, in any event.
The trial was an embarrassment.
yes it was ---they should have been able to fry that traitor legally.
Noam Chomsky said the same about the Nuremburg trials. "They had nothing to do with justice and everything to do with revenge," he said. And, he might not have objected to the revenge... just the perversion of a system of justice that supposedly categorically rejects foregone conclusions.
Trials are for when you're saying "we don't know what happened here." War is for when you're saying "we've made our decision." So, maybe the Rosenbergs should have been deemed enemy combatants, I don't know.
Anyway, they done it. They were spies for the USSR, they betrayed America, and Nikita Kruschev called them 'good comrades.' And they did so because as Jews, they were sympathetic to the Jewish-inspired project of communism, and hostile to the white gentiles who controlled czarist Russia as well as Mayflower America. They sought to destroy both, and they succeeded in time. Yet Russia flowers anew with a nationalism hated by Jews, and in America, skepticism of Jewish control over our foreign policy flourishes underground if not yet in the halls of power. En garde!
The Nuremburg Trials WERE a joke. They should have just cut to the chase and taken them all out and hanged them.
The Rosenburgs -- whichever ones were guilty -- were spies for a nation hostile to the US; therefore, enemies of this nation who divulged classified information that eventually caused grave danger to the existence of this Nation. The penalty for treason is death. Joke trial or no.
