Old friend and columnist Joseph Alsop once told me of arriving in China with a clanking sword he had hassled across the Pacific, given him by his cousin, FDR, along with an instant "inside-the-Beltway" Navy commission.
Foremost among the critical columnists was Joseph Alsop of the New York Herald Tribune, who said that "highly placed sources" in the Pentagon worried that the "American government" (read Eisenhower) "will flaccidly permit the Kremlin to gain an almost unchallenged superiority in the nuclear striking power that was once our specialty."
