    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 FDR’s 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 Caller’s Ginni Thomas about her book, “American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character.” “I don’t believe we won World War II,” West added. “I believe that we were actually carrying out Soviet strategy due...

    NEW DELHI: As former KGB spy Vasili Mitrokhin’s revelations continue to shock India, new documents have revealed that the Soviet spy agency tried its best to incite a war between India and Pakistan in 1981. The Soviet agency also toyed with the idea of setting up an Azad Kashmir state independent of Pakistan and India and the formation of a free Balochistan government-in-exile. The KGB resident in Delhi proposed that another war between India and Pakistan would be advantageous for the Soviet Union and the Babrak Karmal regime in Afghanistan, suggesting that both countries “must be steered in that direction”....
