Truman-Wallace Revisited

February 1981
National Review;2/20/1981, Vol. 33 Issue 3, p138
The article focuses on the relations between the U.S. and the Soviet Union in 1981. The Soviet ambassador was treated at the U.S. State Department of U.S. President Ronald Reagan like all other chiefs of mission. The utterances of Reagan and U.S. Secretary of State Alexander Haig concerning Soviet purposes and conduct have similarities with that of former U.S. President Harry Truman and former U.S. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles. Indeed, there is much talk about a sidetracked detente and a resumed cold war.
