We now honor Soviet spies who betrayed their country. At least we do in New York.
Ethel Rosenberg, who was executed with her husband in 1953, for conspiracy to commit espionage, was presented with two posthumous awards, one for “great bravery” and another for “wrongful conviction”, by the far, far left New York City Council Monday. They even dedicated the day in her honor.
The Rosenbergs were convicted of passing information related to the Atom bomb to Russia. Ethel’s husband Julius was a courier and recruiter for the Soviets.
Their friends and their relatives were Soviet spies.
