KGB Letter Outlines Sen. Kennedy’s Overtures to Soviets

I think I was out of town when this story broke, but why has it not received more air time and discussion? Since Teddy Kennedy and the Democrats view Bush as as great a threat to their idea of national security (which seems to be surrender) than they did Regan you have to wonder if Teddy has been corresponding with Ahmadinajad and other Jihadists.. We do know that Ahmadinajad has been looking for a pen pal.     

(CNSNews.com) – The antipathy that congressional Democrats have today toward President George W. Bush is reminiscent of their distrust of President Ronald Reagan during the Cold War, a political science professor says.

“We see some of the same sentiments today, in that some Democrats see the Republican president as being a threat and the true obstacle to peace, instead of seeing our enemies as the true danger,” said Paul Kengor, a political science professor at Grove City College and the author of new book, “The Crusader: Ronald Reagan and the Fall of Communism.”

In his book, which came out this week, Kengor focuses on a KGB letter written at the height of the Cold War that shows that Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) offered to assist Soviet leaders in formulating a public relations strategy to counter President Reagan’s foreign policy and to complicate his re-election efforts.

The letter, dated May 14, 1983, was sent from the head of the KGB to Yuri Andropov, who was then General Secretary of the Soviet Union’s Communist Party.

In his letter, KGB head Viktor Chebrikov offered Andropov his interpretation of Kennedy’s offer. Former U.S. Sen. John Tunney (D-Calif.) had traveled to Moscow on behalf of Kennedy to seek out a partnership with Andropov and other Soviet officials, Kengor claims in his book.
