They suckered Jimmy Carter, but not Reagan
Liberals just never get it.
Check it out:
President Ronald Reagan was so impressed by the shocking revelations of top Soviet bloc defector Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa – author of a widely read new book titled “Disinformation” – that he altered his foreign policy toward a key communist nation, having been clued in to the clever disinformation campaign that had fooled his predecessor, Jimmy Carter.
Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., currently in his 17th term in Congress, worked with Reagan during the Cold War. In an exclusive interview with WND-TV, Wolf recalled one particular meeting he, Sen. Jesse Helms and a few others had with the president, during which they discussed conditions in communist Romania.
As seen in the photo above, Wolf gave Reagan a copy of Pacepa’s first book, titled “Red Horizons: The True Story of Nicolae & Elena Ceausescu’s Crimes, Lifestyle, and Corruption.” Before defecting to the U.S. in 1978, Pacepa had been the powerful head of Romanian foreign intelligence and right-hand man of the famous dictator. His surprise defection caused Ceausescu to have a nervous breakdown and to order assassination squads to follow Pacepa to America and kill him. Fortunately, various attempts on his life over the years, spurred on by the dictator’s multimillion rewards for Pacepa’s death, all failed. Today, at 84, Pacepa is a proud American citizen and lives in the U.S., under a CIA-protective identity.
