Morton Sobell, Last Defendant in Rosenberg Spy Case, Is Dead at 101

Morton Sobell (...)

was convicted

in the Cold War spy trial

that delivered

Julius and Ethel Rosenberg

to their deaths

and divided the nation

for decades

 

(...)

 

Serving 18 years

in prison until 1969,

Mr. Sobell asserted

his innocence until 2008,

when, in an interview

with The New York Times,

he startled his defenders

by reversing himself

and admitting

that he had indeed been

a Soviet spy.

 

“Yeah, yeah, yeah,

call it that,” he said.

 

“I never thought of it

as that in those terms.”

 

In the interview,

he also implicated

Mr. Rosenberg

in a conspiracy

that supplied the Soviets

with non-atomic military

and industrial secrets

stolen from the United States

government.

David Greenglass        1922-2014

 

It was the most notorious

spy case of the Cold War

— the conviction and execution

of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg

for passing atomic secrets

to the Soviet Union —

and it rested largely

on the testimony

of Ms. Rosenberg’s brother

David Greenglass,

whose name to many

became synonymous

with betrayal.

 

For his role

in the conspiracy,

Mr. Greenglass,

an Army sergeant

who had stolen

nuclear intelligence

from Los Alamos, N.M.,

went to prison

for almost a decade,

then changed his name

and lived quietly

until a journalist

tracked him down.

 

He admitted then,

nearly a half-century later,

that he had lied

on the witness stand

to save his wife

from prosecution,

giving testimony

that he was never sure about

but that nevertheless

helped send

his sister and her husband

to the electric chair in 1953.
