It's interesting that since the Soviet Union is no more, folks on the Right believe everything that is said to originate, directly or indirectly (as in the case of so-called Venona intercepts), from allegedly Soviet & Eastern Bloc sources. "Stalinism" = the repository of Truth, for anti-communists now....

Meanwhile, the Spy Master of the USA is as active as ever, and declassified information (even really old stuff, to say nothing of current stuff) is still hard to come by. Open the Books! Free the Files! Just say no to the National Security State!
