Professor Klehr [sic] is correct that "Evans’s own estimate was that McCarthy made a 'huge error of judgment' in the speech on Marshall; that there were 'factual errors' in McCarthy’s thesis; and finally, while there was an 'immense conspiracy, McCarthy was mistaken 'as to the role of Marshall.'"

What then are we to make of Radosh's extraordinary statement that "In similar fashion, Evans supports McCarthy’s outrageous assertion about Gen. George C. Marshall?"

It seems strange to focus on Novak for implicitly claiming that Evans supports McCarthy's charge against Marshall, while ignoring Radosh, who makes this false claim explicitly.

Granted McCarthy was careless painting Marshall as part of "a great conspiracy." Yet doesn't Evans show that Truman's State Department was careless about security risks, ignored FBI memos pointing these out, then devoted a lot of energy to discredit McCarthy rather than openly work to patch up a number of embarrassing security breaches?
