>>>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 Pattons army and he told a very sad story of witnessing the Soviets shooting the ones who didnt 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.
It wasn't just FDR. Eisenhower was as guilty
Excellent thread, btw. It's obvious to me there are any number of Freepers who are as interested in Soviet espionage and its consequences as am I.
Someone mentioned the excellent work, Witness, a book that should be read by all even over 60 years later.
Someone else gave credit to uncovering the Soviet threat to Chambers and Bentley but failed to mention Gouzenko. Though not an American he was the first to reveal Soviet penetration of a Western government.
