ABSTRACT
This article presents some information about the State Department's actions against a person who is alleged of making threat to national security. The name of the person is Owen Lattimore. The State Department has requested the Customs Bureau to prevent Lattimore's unplanned departure from the United States. But no pretense of an investigation or a hearing, let alone proof, before a public announcement was made of Lattimore's confinement to the United States. No fact is, evident which would justify treating Lattimore as a dangerous traitor, potentially or actually prone to betray vital secrets of the United States. The article also focuses on politician Joe McCarthy's arguments on this issue.
