The Trumped-Up Case Against I.F. Stone

For years, the right has tried to tar I.F. Stone, one of left journalism’s greatest heroes and an icon of independent reporting, as a spy for the Soviet Union (Nation, 8/31/06). Now two right-wing historians and an ex-KGB officer are back with more assertions that Stone secretly worked for the Soviet intelligence service.

Two weeks after the Panama invasion, CBS News sponsored a public opinion poll in Panama that found the residents in rapture over what had happened. Even 80 percent of those whose homes had been blown up or their relatives killed by U.S. forces said it was worth it. Their enthusiasm did not stop with the ousting of Gen. Manuel Noriega, however. A less heavily advertised result of the poll was that 82 percent of the sampled Panamanian patriots did not want Panamanian control of the Canal, preferring either partial or exclusive control by the U.S. ("Panamanians Strongly Back U.S. Move," […]
