|Abstract||During Cold War I, the task was to contain two awesome forces. The lesser and more moderate force was â€œan implacable enemy whose avowed objective is world domination by whatever means and at whatever cost.â€ Hence â€œif the United States is to survive,â€ it will have to adopt a â€œrepugnant philosophyâ€ and reject â€œacceptable norms of human conductâ€ and the â€œlong-standing American concepts of `fair playâ€™â€ that had been exhibited with such searing clarity in the conquest of the national territory, the Philippines, Haiti and other beneficiaries of â€œthe idealistic new world bent on ending inhumanity,â€ as the newspaper of record describes our noble mission.  The judgments about the nature of the super-Hitler and the necessary response are those of General Jimmy Doolittle, in a critical assessment of the CIA commissioned by President Eisenhower in 1954. They are quite consistent with those of the Truman administration liberals, the â€œwise menâ€ who were â€œpresent at the creation,â€ notoriously in NSC 68 but in fact quite consistently.|
