If the Soviet penetration of Washington, D.C., was so wide and so deep that it functioned like an occupation
If, as a result of that occupation, American statecraft became an extension of Soviet strategy
If the people who caught on investigators, politicians, defectors and tried to warn the American public were demonized, ridiculed and destroyed for the good of that occupation and to further that strategy
And if the truth was suppressed by an increasingly complicit Uncle Sam
Would you feel betrayed?
