On This Day
On This Day. 1954: President Eisenhower privately criticized Sen. Joe McCarthy’s anti-communist witch hunt - but wouldn’t do so in public . But that night, journalist Edward R. Murrow attacked McCarthy, warning he was “treading a fine line between investigation and persecution.”
On This Day. 1957: President Eisenhower signed a bill authorizing U.S. military force to defend Middle East nations threatened by aggression. Eisenhower’s decision to defend the Middle East from attack was clearly aimed at an aggressive and, some feared, expansionist U.S.S.R.
