Transcript been exposed and admitted, even by their authors themselves. But by far the majority of them, uncorrected and undenied, have been left to build up by mass impact, if nothing else, the point of view of the average man and the government official alike about Russia under the Soviet regime. UNITED STATES OFFICIAL FABRICATIONS The Sisson Documents Perhaps the most impressive fabrication in the United States was perpetrated by the United States Government itself, and has probably caused more confusion and ignorance about Russia than any other purely American product. The so-called "Sisson Documents," purporting to be genuine original papers, were collected by the Committee on Public Information and issued in pamphlet form in October, 1918. In a rather lurid introduction the Commttee pointed out "the truth" which the "documents" in their opinion proved—that the entire Bolshevist regime was a German conspiracy, conceived and financed by the then Imperial German Government. In the words of, the introduction: The documents show that the heads of the Bolshevik Government— Lenin and Trotzky and their associates—are German agents. They show that the Bolshevik revolution was arranged for by the German Great General Staff and financed by the German Imperial Bank. They show that the treaty of Brest-Litovsk was a betrayal of the Russian people by the German agents, Lenin and Trotzky. . . . They show, in short, that the present Bolsheviki Government is not a Russian government at all, but a German government acting solely in the interests of Germany and betraying the Russian people . . . for the benefit of the Imperial German Government alone. The issuance of this pamphlet was heralded by a flood of clever press publicity, which was eagerly seized upon by editors from coast to coast and featured with the most sensational displays. From that day to this, vast numbers of good- hearted but naive American citizens have been convinced that the Kaiser was responsible for the Russian Revolution and that Lenin and Trotzky were "nothing else than paid agents of the German Government," as the phrase runs. For some, the part played by Soviet Russia in the eventual collapse of the Imperial German Government has caused suspicion of the whole canard, but the mental processes of the vast majority probably still slip with accustomed ease from Lenin to the bribes of the former Kaiser. 11
