If Dulles was waiting for Stassen “to step over the line he has drawn so that he can lower the boom,” he had a long wait ahead. Not until February 14, 1958, did Stassen step down and leave the Eisenhower administration. Rumors had been circulating about the president’s dissatisfaction with Stassen’s conduct in London, but Stassen behaved as if the warnings and rebukes had never been issued. The US proposal on disarmament, overseen by Dulles, was a repudiation of many of Stassen’s first-step initiatives. If Stassen recognized that the Soviets’ indictment against the West characterized him as the primary antagonist, his reactions did not reflect it. He dismissed the Soviet criticism, just as he had the criticisms from his colleagues.
