The conference featured information disclosed after the Cold War ended, Author: Bernie Reeves.

    In April , the committee hearings were widely televised, and Americans watched Army members demand that McCarthy name names and provide evidence. On June 9, , McCarthy was humiliated by the Army's legal representative, Joseph Nye Welch, who repeatedly demanded that McCarthy produce the list of alleged communists in the US Army.   Of the four men, of course, the most notorious is Senator McCarthy.
