I hadn't yet joined the SWP when the Mandel case arose but read old
Militants and discussion bulletins discussing it (some or all of which are
now online). A couple points worth noting:
* The SWP launched a civil liberties campaign around his exclusion;
* The case was a reminder that the fading of McCarthyism had not eliminated
the possibility of such obvious and flagrant violations of free speech (and
after all during this period Panthers were getting shot down in cold
blood); and
* The government used for its own purposes the debate within the Fourth
International on guerrilla warfare to slander and bar Mandel.
