Syndicated columnist Diana West says the ultimate conclusion of her new book shocked even her.
Americans have been betrayed by our leaders going back to FDRs administration in the 1930s because we were penetrated by Soviet agents to such an extent that our policies and, indeed I argue, our character as a nation was subverted, she explained in an interview with The Daily Callers Ginni Thomas about her book, American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nations Character.
I dont believe we won World War II, West added. I believe that we were actually carrying out Soviet strategy due to this penetration.
West says that though the United States helped defeat Hitlers Germany, Joseph Stalin used the war to enlarge the boundaries of his Soviet empire by taking half of Europe.
You replace Hitler, one monster of totalitarianism, with an even larger totalitarian monster, who killed even more millions of people, West said.
How do we look at that and say, we won, were great. Triumphial. It just doesnt compute. And I think we have again been victimized by a tremendous, in effect, influence campaign.
West started writing the book, which reads like a thriller, in 2009. Throughout her research of available historical documents, she tried to reconcile her findings with countless footnotes, memoirs, State Department records, out-of-print books, letters and revelations in files from the Venona archive and the Mitrokhin archives that became available after the dissolution of the Soviet Union.....

FDR had a top tax rate of 94% and proposed a 100% top rate. Looking at that its obvious Communists influenced his regime.
THE ROOSEVELT MYTH
FDR was warned....so was Truman; they didn't care.
Checkout "Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy."
Hiss' damage wasn't caused by the information he revealed....it was his effect on policy (see Red China becoming Red China for example)
The powers that be knew all along via the VENONA Project in which we were decoding Soviet transmissions that indicated Hiss (and others) was guilty.
I will never forgive FDR because he promoted “Operation Keelhaul,” the U.S. policy of allowing the Soviets to forcibly return or kill Russian citizens who ended up in Europe at the end of the war.
My husband and I knew a colonel who was in Patton’s army and he told a very sad story of witnessing the Soviets shooting the ones who didn’t want to be rounded up.

A lot of people were sent back to USSR from United States as well at the time. Including numerous anti-communists who has immigrated long before WWII.
99% of Americans don’t know about it. Or won’t believe it.
I once spoke with a man who claimed he saw a woman holding a baby jump off a bridge rather than be repatriated.
See 1949 “Red Danube” with Walter Pidgeon, Peter Lawford, Angela Lansbury, Janet Leigh and Ethel Barrymore.
Whoops. Tis 2:55AM EST.. Time for the sack. Logging out. Do have a great upcoming day.
“None Dare Call It Conspiracy” was patterned after “None Dare Call It Treason”. Unfortunately, both authors took real facts and mixed them with fiction, supposition, and incomplete research to tell the story of communism and its’ penetration of American politics and society.
While well-intentioned, these kind of books divert people away from the more complicated Soviet operations and American counter-intelligence operations that have taken decades to be declassified and released to the American public.
The “Venona” papers were known to some in the 1950’s or 60’s but were never spoken up until the 1990’s due to ongoing decryption efforts.
The same for the British counterpart operations to Venona.
Believe me when I say that more exposes’ of Soviet/American Communist subversion will be coming out this year and next.
At least two new books are on the way, with a third just being started on Alger Hiss. Trust me on this.
Also, a new document on communist subversion in America (i.e. labor unions, etc). has been found and will be released to the public sometime later this summer. Some very famous Soviet operatives will be listed in it, and they have long tentacles, at least three from Moscow into the US labor unions, politics, and maybe to a president (by way of several “cutouts”).
All in good time, friends. A lot of research has to be done to put this document into its proper perspective and the speculation of its meaning re those mentioned has to be very carefully worded because there are no known follow-up documents to it (right now), though they should exist.
Welcome to the wonderful world of subversion.
That is why we depend on law, not men.
Our collective grandpa thru the depression and WWII
both rather traumatic...my parents loved his demeanor even as my dad and pawpaw hated his politics
FDR carried everyone at first but rich northeastern Yankees who knew him for what he was
A traitor to their class
But he was popular elsewhere in 32 and 36 with landslides
But by 1940 he was known as a progressive by common sense midwesterners and great plains folk
But still a dearth of electoral votes in opposition
FDR was in a class by himself for his era
Not sure what drove his socialism
He was a mamas boy...
Socially conservative....hell who wasn’t then?
His socialism still lingers....and was the springboard for our cancers
However, within the context of this topic, consider the immediate period after the VE and VJ surrender signings.
Would the European countries, free prior to WWII, believe the Allies had restored that freedom? What, for example, would the Poles say? Oddly, Poland was invaded from the West and Britain goes to war; a couple of weeks later Poland is invaded from the East and not a peep from Britain.
Or, FDR being fully aware of Katyn, does nothing. This after the fan-fair of the "Four Freedoms" and the Atlantic Charter "raise" hopes of a just peace, ..., etc. [Note: Nothing is ever signed, however.]
In the recent Freedom Betratyed:Herbert Hoover's Secret History of the Second World War (editor George Nash), is chapter and verse from the US Treaty of Recognition of the USSR and the direct results of that FDR Administration decision. Stroke FDR's ego and wonderous things happened, stroke current President's ego and ... Same script?
To add another path - How is it that the USSR, under Lend-Lease, got nuclear materials in the Spring of 1943 - long before the Trinity test? And the winner is Harry "The Hop" Hopkins - Agent No. 19 from the Venona Project OTP decrypts, and FDR's "stroking" alter ego. USSR industrial espionage was the norm under Lend-Lease (e.g., the IL-2 "Sturmovik" warplane had the US-borrowed "Vee" engine as its powerplant).
The Founders truly believed in an informed public, with an underlying assumption. Free and unbiased reporting on the issues of the day - as in the Federalist Papers discussing the adoption of the US Constitution. This assumption became a non-starter with Wilson (recall the "method" of the US entry into WWI) and that continues even today.
The only "bump in the road" or divergence has been with the advent and use of the internet, blogs, ... In that vane, consider the current action of the AG on the press ...
“For instance, Churchill wanted to invade Europe directly from North Africa instead of coming through Normandy, which was Stalins preference because it gave him more opportunity to gain ground in Eastern Europe. However its a bit much for the author to conclude that we didnt win the war.”
Churchill got his wish with the epic fail in Italy in 1943; the Normandy “foothold in Europe” was necessary because the “toehold” in Italy couldn’t get past Albert Kesselring’s defense (which cost a lot of allied lives). Churchill knew Britain had lost the war because they had declared war to defend Poland, and the Poles were enslaved at the end of it anyway. What did British troops die for?
