Peter Schweizer is a research

Peter Schweizer is a research fellow at the Hoover Institution. Some years ago he wrote a book called Victory about how the Reagan administration contributed to the fall of Communism. He has spent the last several years conducting research in recently declassified Stasi, KGB and Soviet Communist Party files, and has now published Reagan’s War. Reagan’s War contains shocking disclosures of what can only be considered treason by leading Democrats. As described in this News Max article, via FrontPage Magazine, Jimmy Carter conspired with Soviet Ambassador Anatoly Dobrynin to try to prevent Reagan’s election in both 1980 and 1984. In 1980, when Carter ran against Reagan, he dispatched Communist sympathizer Armand Hammer to assure the Soviets that “Carter won’t forget” the Russians’ help if he won re-election. Tip O’Neill, the Speaker of the House, likewise conspired with the Soviets against the United States. O’Neill had a series of private meetings with Dobrynin in which he told the Russians that Reagan “is a dangerous man” and that the Soviet Union should spare no effort to prevent his re-election. It is astonishing to see that for these Democrats–the elected leaders of their party at the time–the real enemy was not Communist totalitarianism, it was the Republicans. One can only wonder whether the current generation of Democrats is, like their predecessors, more interested in defeating President Bush than in defeating our country’s enemies.
