Two Cheers for Mr. Dulles

December 1953
New Republic;12/14/53, Vol. 129 Issue 20, p7
This article focuses on the constitutional crisis in the United States. Walter Lippmann says that these usurpations have-been directed against the Executive's powers to protect the nation's security and to conduct its foreign affairs. Yet, because the immediate targets were Democrats, the Administration was passive, and the Attorney General actually joined in the attack. For months the career diplomats and conservatives sent overseas to represent President Dwight David Eisenhower have reported with increasing alarm the impact of McCarthyism abroad. They have told how the warmest friends of the U.S. have fallen silent, as the image has grown of a President unable to shake himself loose from McCarthy's grip.
