Fired CIA analyst Mary McCarthy is an example of what Sen. Joe McCarthy tried to root out of this government: communists then, transnationalists now.
McCarthy answered those questions and confessed to having given information to a number of journalists---including the WaPo's Dana Priest. CIA officials corrected her lies to the press and gave a truthful account to Fox News Channel this morning about what transpired in that post-test questioning.
Below are highlights from a *****Five Star, must read column, "The New McCarthyism: Mary McCarthy, That Is," by Rabbi Aryeh Spero. Rabbi Spero explains to us what motivates and drives the Mary McCarthys of the world---who pledge their allegiance to an elite utopian "transnationalism" that supersedes patriotism, nationalism, and the sovereignty of any one country.

"Mary McCarthy proves that Sen. Joe McCarthy was right all along. Mary McCarthy, an insider at the C.I.A. who reportedly leaked war secrets to the press, is proving that 50 years after communist infiltration at the State Department, there exists, still, in high places of government leftist ideologues whose allegiance is not to the United States as a sovereign nation with its own interests but to a utopian ideology.
Evidently, she is not alone. Back in the 50s, the utopian ideology was communism (now passé) whereas today’s incarnation is transnationalism. Today’s transnationalism is simply communism but with an appetite for money, social success, and the good life.
Both communism and transnationalism share a belief that nationalism is the primary obstacle to world wide utopian harmony. Both believe that a select few, the “elite,” possess the understanding to decide for people what is always in their best interests. Both view the United States as the greatest obstacle to borderless cultural uniformity... both result in a form of anti-Americanism.
What makes these smug schemers guilty is not their difference of opinion with the administration, nor their willingness to express it. Like the Rosenbergs of the 50s, the Mary McCarthys.... of the world are willing to endanger their countrymen and our soldiers by divulging secret information that directly weakens the U.S and strengthens our enemies. This verifies that their allegiance is not to the people of the United States or its government but to that which in their mind supersedes country. We call that treason....
As internationalists, they are more exorcised by the infringement of terrorist “rights” to make calls to sleeper cells here in the U.S. than our right as Americans to have our families protected from the plans being hatched in these very calls....
Their defenders on the Left claim they are simply “whistleblowers” and spurred by, of course, “human rights”.... Patriotism and loyalty to countrymen and its soldiers is a sentiment as utterly foreign to them....
Besides, every traitor believes in the majesty and superiority of his cause.... but here on earth those that divulge proprietary, entrusted information that puts at risk their country’s ability to win a war in which it is currently engaged are called traitors....
During the McCarthy period of the 50s, it was easier to apprehend the perfidy of the pro-communists because they actively supported a country, Russia.... Even then, the anti-communists like Sen. Joe McCarthy were berated as inquisitors.
The transnationalists of today have the luxury of evading the treason spotlight for, though their efforts and perfidies embolden and enable the enemy and put our country at greater risk, they do not actively support the regimes we are fighting. But the result is the same....
Even the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House are infected by it, so much so, that for some it could be renamed the Transnational House and Senate.... One need only listen to the interviews of countless liberals hailing Mary McCarthy.... as (a) hero... of conscience. Their only criticism seems to be that they may have violated their job agreement, their work rules….
The truth of the matter is that this penchant for worldwide utopianism began back in the 30s here in New York among the pampered “intellectual set”. They espoused communism -- and America was the obstacle to it and thus the enemy. It became dangerous, however, in the 50s when communist sympathizers began holding positions over at the State Dept.... What is today so alarming is that transnationalism, communism’s modern morph, now has moles inside that most inviolable institution, the C.I.A. itself....
....today’s transnationalists are induced by elitism, a classism, a belief in their inherent superiority. They travel among the wealthiest, are themselves often wealthy and are already powerful. They wish to control. They are egotists, part of a global fraternity.
People such as the Clintons, Kerrys, Boxers, George Soros, Ted Turner, Carter, Chirac, Peres, Schroder and members of the Hague travel in a powerful circle that reserves to itself a royal-like mandate to steer the world along universalist highways above the lowly byways of nationalism, especially Americanism. This accounts for the endless apologies to the world from Clinton, Gore, Kerry, Carter and Turner for “the sins of America”. Their poster reads: “Americans uncomfortable with true American sovereignty and power.”
This clique -- and mind set -- is the world’s most effective NGO, with subscribers in every capital and university. It is the Tower of Babel revisited.They are the political world’s “beautiful people”, and countless other people in positions of power and decision who see themselves as political “masters of the universe” are drawn to the glamorous transnationalism life and philosophy which they see as their rightful place and birthright....
Yes, there are in this country people who wish to bring it down.... They love America only when America acts the way they want. That’s not love! They’ll be loyal, so long as they agree with the policy. That’s not fidelity! They’ll respect its laws, as long as they don’t conflict with their fealty to the higher law of transnationalism. That’s not patriotism! They will not keep classified secrets if such secrets reinforce the notion of absolute American sovereignty. They want an America far less sovereign. In my book, that’s treasonous...."

Joseph Raymond McCarthy
McCarthyism took place during a period of intense suspicion in the United States primarily from 1950 to 1954, when the U.S. government was actively countering American Communist Party subversion, its leadership, and others suspected of being Communists or Communist sympathizers. During this period people from all walks of life became the subject of aggressive "witch-hunts," often based on inconclusive or questionable evidence. It grew out of the Second Red Scare that began in the late 1940s and is named after the U.S. Senator Joseph McCarthy, a Republican of Wisconsin.
At another link to information about Sen. Joe McCarthy and the Senate's censure of him, at usinfo.state.gov, he is characterized this way: He and his aides, Roy Cohn and David Schine, made wild accusations, browbeat witnesses, destroyed reputations and threw mud at men like George Marshall, Adlai Stevenson, and others whom McCarthy charged were part of an effete "eastern establishment...."
Sounds exactly like what the Senate Democrat obstructionists have been doing to President Bush---both on the campaign trail and for 5 years in office, all top officials of his administration, and just about every judicial nominee and Justice Department nominee he has sent to the Senate for approval. In other words, a perfect description of the hard-left's politics of personal destruction. Looks as if they took a page from Joe McCarthy's playbook and made a science of it.
