  • [eDebate] missing from ted kennedy's hagiography
    of the Communist Party Y V Andropov According to the memo Senator Kennedy was very troubled by U S Soviet relations which Kennedy attributed not to the murderous tyrant running the USSR but to President Reagan The problem was Reagan s belligerence This was allegedly made worse by Reagan s stubbornness According to Kennedy reported Chebrikov the current threat is due to the President s refusal to engage any modification to his politics That refusal said the memo was exacerbated by Reagan s political success which made the president surer of his course and more obstinate and worst of all re electable On that the fourth and fifth paragraphs of Chebrikov s memo got to the thrust of Kennedy s offer The senator was apparently clinging to hope that President Reagan s 1984 reelection bid could be thwarted Of course this seemed unlikely given Reagan s undeniable popularity So where was the president vulnerable Alas Kennedy had an answer and suggestion for his Soviet friends In Chebrikov s words The only real threats to Reagan are problems of war and peace and Soviet American relations These issues according to the senator will without a doubt become the most important of the election campaign Therein Chebrikov got to the heart of the U S senator s offer to the USSR s general secretary Kennedy believes that given the state of current affairs and in the interest of peace it would be prudent and timely to undertake the following steps to counter the militaristic politics of Reagan Of these step one would be for Andropov to invite the senator to Moscow for a personal meeting Said Chebrikov The main purpose of the meeting according to the senator would be to arm Soviet officials with explanations regarding problems of nuclear disarmament so they would be better prepared and more convincing during appearances in the USA The second step the KGB head informed Andropov was a Kennedy strategy to help the Soviets influence Americans Chebrikov explained Kennedy believes that in order to influence Americans it would be important to organize in August September of this year 1983 televised interviews with Y V Andropov in the USA The media savvy Massachusetts senator recommended to the Soviet dictator that he seek a direct appeal to the American people And on that Kennedy and his friends explained Chebrikov were willing to help listing Walter Cronkite and Barbara Walters both listed by name in the memo as good candidates for sit down interviews with the dictator Kennedy concluded that the Soviets needed in effect some PR help given that Reagan was good at propaganda the word used in the memo The senator wanted them to know he was more than eager to lend a hand Kennedy wanted the Soviets to saturate the American media during such a visit Chebrikov said Kennedy could arrange interviews not only for the dictator but for lower level Soviet officials particularly from the military who would also have an opportunity to appeal directly
