Demonising the Soviet Bloc

According to Edward S. Herman and Frank Brodhead, Henze was one of the peddlers of a conspiracy theory attributing the attempted assassination of John Paul II to the Bulgarian secret service. along with the journalist Claire Sterling and the neoconservative Michael Ledeen. Herman and Brodhead write that: 'The most important investigative work -- or, we should say, creative writing -- in establishing the hypothesis of the Bulgarian Connection was done by Claire Sterling, Paul Henze, and Michael Ledeen.'
