Hans Josef Horchem
- In the summer of 1979, Dr. Hans Josef Horchem of West Germany's anti-terrorist Office for the Defense of the Constitution, declared that "the KGB is engineering international terrorism.The facts can be proven, documented, and are well known to the international Western intelligence community."A little over one year later, during his confirmation hearings in January of 1981, Secretary of State Designate Alexander Haig told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that the Soviets were, at that time, "training, funding, manning, and equipping the so-called forces of liberation or terrorist forces throughout the world."
- What has changed since that time is Russia's emphasis on, and sophistication in promoting, global revolution and terrorism through assets posing as Islamic fundamentalists.An even more important, and far more dangerous, change is not only the complete unwillingness of U.S. officials to recognize, expose, condemn, and oppose this deadly charade, but their eager readiness to embrace these proven enemies as allies.These treasonous policies and suicidal tendencies must be reversed; our very survival depends on it.
