Center for Security Policy Convenes Symposium on Subversion in High Places:
The Legacy of FDR’s Normalization of Relations with the USSR
Eightieth Anniversary of Deal That Facilitated Penetration of U.S. Government, Society
Washington, DC — Eighty years ago this Saturday, President Franklin D. Roosevelt agreed for the first time to recognize the Communist regime of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. He did so on the basis of formal undertakings by then-Soviet Foreign Minister Maxim Litvinov that the Kremlin would not engage in subversive actions in America.
The rest, as they say, is history. And a sordid and still unfolding history it is.
The Center for Security Policy is pleased to convene a symposium to review that history — both that of the immediate post-normalization period, of World War II, of the Cold War and of today — from noon-2:00 p.m. at the headquarters of Judicial Watch at 425 3rd Street, SW, Suite 800, Washington, D.C. 20024.
- Diana West, author of American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character;
- M. Stanton Evans, author of Stalin’s Secret Agents: The Subversion of Roosevelt’s Government Relations;
- Christopher Farrell, Chief Investigator, Judicial Watch; and
- Stephen Coughlin, author of the forthcoming book,Catastrophic Failure.
- Frank Gaffney, President, Center for Security Policy, moderator.
Where: Judicial Watch, 425 3rd Street SW, Washington, D.C. Suite 800
When: 12:00-2:00 p.m., 15 November 2013
“The 16th of November 1933 is a day that truly should live in infamy. This symposium will explore its significance both in terms of much of the most sordid history of the 20th Century — and as the predicate for similar forces at work in the 21st.”
