"The Rosenbergs were tried, convicted and hanged because of the hysteria sweeping the country at the time, fueled by people who talk an awful lot like you do sometimes on this board."

Well... there was that. Of course, they were also guilty as charged.

That's an interesting story. Their guilt was not proven at their trial -- it was a total frame-up, and they probably would not have been convicted if they had not been Jewish. Years later, evidence was found that actually showed they were guilty.

Was justice served?
