The Venona Decrypts bear out much of what Joe McCarthy and HUAC charged. And if there was this much communist skullduggery transpiring in the unsophisticated 50's, how much do you think is going on NOW, especially now that the pinko rats have no geographical home, and are free to roam the world at will?
Even before the Verona transcripts, McCarthy's charges were found to be true.
John Fairbanks once wrote a book on how he was persecuted by McCarthy simply because he was prescient on China; however, a few months after McCarthy's death, it was revealed that Fairbanks tried to bring Communism to Japan and that was a charge he could not refute before a Senate comittee investigating him (William Rusher was there and knows the story).

There are many more examples of McCarthy's prescience. If history wasn't owned by the Left, he would have been resurrected years ago as a visionary. He was a tragically flawed man, but innocent of the best-known charges leveled against him.
