What About Poland?

Dinesh D’Souza’s commentary (“It Was Reagan Who Tore Down That Wall,” Opinion, Nov. 7) fails to recognize the pivotal role Poland played in the fall of Soviet communism. It was former Polish President Lech Walesa who founded and led the Solidarity labor union that was instrumental in liberating Poland from a communist regime. The Solidarity movement became the impetus for the eventual collapse of communism in all the Soviet bloc countries.
