Picking up from the unconscionable censure of Sen. McCarthy on December 2, 1954, Barry M. Goldwater, one of 22 Republican senators to oppose censure, writes the following in his 1979 memoir, With No Apologies.

No one seemed to notice that after the furor faded, the Army's top secret operations at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey, which had been the subject of one of McCarthy's attacks, were quietly moved to Fort Huachuca, Arizona. Carl Hayden, who in January 1955 became chairman of the powerful Appropriations Committee of the United States Senate, told me privately Monmouth had been moved because he and other members of the majority Democratic party were convinced security at Monmouth had been penetrated. They didn't want to admit that McCarthy was right in his accusations. Their only alternative was to move the installation from New Jersey to a new location in Arizona. (Emphasis added.)

In other words, McCarthy was right again -- and his colleagues in good standing were the last to admit it. 

More American betrayal.
