...and so were the Rosenbergs

For First Time, Figure in Rosenberg Case Admits Spying for Soviets - "In 1951, Morton Sobell was tried and convicted with Julius and Ethel Rosenberg on espionage charges. He served more than 18 years in Alcatraz and other federal prisons, traveled to Cuba and Vietnam after his release in 1969 and became an advocate for progressive causes. Through it all, he maintained his innocence. But on Thursday, Mr. Sobell, 91, dramatically reversed himself, shedding new light on a case that still fans smoldering political passions. In an interview, he admitted for the first time that he had been a Soviet spy."
To this day many on the left insist that the Rosenbergs were innocent. This is nonsense. There is no way to review the facts and come away believing that they were not Soviet spies who fed nuclear secrets to our enemies. Now, what will the left have to say about Sobell's recent decision to finally, at long last, tell something that resembles the truth?
