W e hav e heard of Service before. I do not ask you to believe upon the sole authority of my word th at the full weight of Stilwell, of D avies, and these young men was thrown in the balance of the conspiratorial, subversive Chinese Reds and against our ally, the Government of China. T he reader may have read the State D epartment's insincere and dissembling White Paper on the China qu estion. I bid him read again, study, and m ark the rep orts sent back to W ashin gton by Stilwell's clique; read them with this in mind, that except for the reports of the naval atta che in 39 China, the se were th e onl y advices the administration had to go on regarding th e situ ation in th at huge and distressed land.
F rom whe nce did this pressure arise ? Was it from the great peaceable masses of th e American people, eager to have the wa r over and peacetim e conditions reestablished, eager to have their sons, husbands, and brothers back home but in no wise eager to have our forces out of China? The answer came from the friends of the Soviet Empire in A merica. The message of the President to the Gen eralissimo was not discouraging. It rem ained for the Secretary of State and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, which of course meant Marshall, to deliver the coup de grace to Chiang K ai-shek's hopes for American support, moral, economic, and mili tary, in putting dow n what Leahy had called the rebellion in China.
Before coming to the denouement of this sorry state of affairs, I give you another view of the activities of Stilwell and Davies in Chungking. This testimony comes from an eyewitness, a valorous retired major general of the United States Army Air Forces, Claire Lee Chennault, who won undying fame with his Flying Tigers. I am referring to Chennault's recorded experiences in China, Way of a Fighter, where he reviews Stilwell's behavior in unsparing detail. Chennault describes how Stilwell in the spring of 1944 sent a mission to his friends in Yerian.
