Glad we could clear that up.

And I've read about as much as I can on the case. I don't know why, but I thought most people's understanding of the case went beyond their 5th grade history book. You can name call all you like. No one can say with a straight face that they were not given a sham trial. Seeing as how due process is one of those things that makes flag waving mericans like yourself so proud, I think it's pretty reasonable for you to acknowledge that basically executing someone withou a fair trial is very, should I say, unamerian.

In an interview for a 2001 book by this reporter, “The Brother,” Mr. Greenglass acknowledged that he had lied when he testified that his sister had typed his notes about the bomb — the single most incriminating evidence against her. His allegation emerged months after Mr. Greenglass and his wife testified before the grand jury and only weeks before the 1951 trial.

Oh don't hurt my feelings now. Imagine how you'll feel when I tell you the Catholic Church willingly helped nazi war criminals escape to Argentina and Syria.

I'm Ron Burgundy? Anyway, you missed the entire point. Perhaps you're not an anti-Semite.

Why would I care what you post about the Rosenbergs or the Catholic church? Even if I didn't think you are an idiot, it would be of no concern.

Me! You are the one that made the senseless comment about the Church and Nazi's unrleated to this thread? You are the one that accused me of anti-semitism for spelling their last name the same way you did. I'm simply disagreeing with your dumb load of shite. My thinking you are a useless troll and a serious dumb arse with a man crush of kaare Johnson isn't flying off the handle.

No, I would put bull shite race-fueled cases throughout the South up there, followed by the West Memphis Three and the Timothy MacDonald cases

I hope their executions were extremely grotesque and painful

I don't think there is any reasonable doubt that McDonald was guilty of killing his family. Forensics proved his story was BS. I thought he even confessed to a girlfriend not so long ago.

Why do you keep repeating this? You are killing your own credibility here with this invalid argument as not one person has indicated nor advocated that being communist is or should be a capital offense.

The handling of the case itself was a disaster though. I guess that's a little different than a miscarriage of justice. Should have left him off.

If you are talking about the initial CID investigation I agree, but that should generally have helped the defense as would the almost decade between the event and the trial. If you are talking about McDonalds defense, I was unaware of any problems. i think he comes off as an arrogant prick and that probably wasn't great for a jury trial he probably didn't5 generate much empathy or trust.

Nice try. Their granddaughter made a documentary after the files were released to the public in the 90's. She herself had to admit that the "new revelations" made them look even more guilty than before.

Their surviving friends pretty much confirmed everything that we already knew.

The execution of Julius was unquestionably just, so I can't see why helping the Soviet Union develop nuclear weapons was all that laudable, or not worthy of death.

Ethel - meh - I have some questions, but I would have voted to convict based on the evidence available both then and now. "Beyond a reasonable doubt" is not quite the same as "beyond all doubt".

Next question.

(I bet you don't think the attacks on Hiroshima or Nagasaki were in accordance with international law, do you?)

Gonna have to disagree with you on that one. She knew about it, and aided and abetted.
