This just in from Angelo Codevilla.
After reading my essay, "On Myths and `Farragos,'" which comments on his recent exchange with Conrad Black in National Review, he writes:
[Quoting from my essay]: "If Codevilla ever gets a chance to read American Betrayal, he will find additional evidence supporting the opposite point of view: that the Soviet Empire was not inevitable, but was rather crucially assisted by veritable armies of agents and other assets."
I have read it, and agree wholeheartedly. That was the point (I thought,) of what I wrote re: Black.
