“I would like to join in the appeal to President Obama to formally exonerate Ethel Rosenberg before leaving office. The case against her was clearly very flimsy from the start, and the punishment outrageously beyond even the most extreme charges.  By now it is overwhelmingly obvious that there was no case at all, and that the government manufactured the case in order to pressure her husband to cooperate with the prosecution.  The case was a gross miscarriage of justice, an ugly stain on American legal history.  It is long past time for official recognition of the magnitude of this crime, and exoneration of the tragic victim." - Noam Chomsky
