American honored in Russia...

... for delivering atomic secrets to the Soviets during and after World War 2.

On Nov. 2, the Kremlin startled Western scholars by announcing that President Vladimir V. Putin had posthumously given the highest Russian award to a Soviet agent who penetrated the Manhattan Project to build the atom bomb.

The announcement hailed Dr. Koval as “the only Soviet intelligence officer” to infiltrate the project’s secret plants, saying his work “helped speed up considerably the time it took for the Soviet Union to develop an atomic bomb of its own.”

How about a resolution in Congress condemning him? You know, if we're going to waste time condemning Turkey for something it did during a time of war, let's take a moment and condemn one of our own for giving us 50 years of the Cold War.
