Forget Reagan … maybe Bruce brought the wall down

“Tear down this wall,” said President Ronald Reagan, on a 1987 visit to West Berlin.

Many have credited Reagan with being instrumental in not only the dismantling of the wall, but the fall of communism all together.

But now, according to Reuters, some who were actually behind the Iron Curtain in the late 1980s believe a 1988 Bruce Springsteen concert in East Berlin may have played a bigger part than Reagan’s speech.
