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 Throughout her research of available historical documents, she tried to reconcile her findings with countless footnotes, memoirs, State Department records, out-of-print books, letters and revelations in files from the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.....

McCarthy vindication ping!
FDR was a tool. Why he is admired by otherwise sensible people is beyond my limited grasp.
Tail Gun Joe was right all along.
It is also a fact that for roughly a century, communists concentrated considerable effort into subverting the American black community, and we are now reaping the bitter harvest. Strip away all the ethnic peculiarities of the afro-american culture, and it’s pure unaldulterated communist/socialist doctrine.
What’s sad is that if you say anything bad about “The Good War” you get smeared. I hope I’m wrong, but I bet she won’t be invited on Fox News or any talk radio.
It’s always been a mystery why Dresden was firebombed when it was choked with refugees from the East. I’ve heard that it was to keep Stalin happy and I believe it.
I know some college professors who pretty much worship him.
I cannot remember where I read FDR was very close to unknowingly naming a Soviet agent (spy) as his Sec State; might have been “The Shield and the Sword” by Vasili Mitrokhin (former KGB officer). At any rate, the ‘30s and ‘40s US/UK governments were likely thoroughly penetrated by the Soviets; from the Cambridge Five to the Rosenbergs. Maybe even the early CIA; read “A Wilderness of Mirrors” by David C. martin. This ebbed with the advent of the ‘50s cold war and yet took off again with the tumult of the ‘60s and continues to this day.

Pat Buchanan wrote a book recently about our involvement in WW2 being unnecessary. Did we do Iran’s dirty work in Iraq? Both countriesare now run by shites.
Pat didn’t have any family headed to the easy-bake ovens.
The real scandal is that assault continues unabated, and I believe it’s even accelerating today.
Back in the run-up to the war, I kept saying, "Of course Sadaam won't declare he doesn't have WMDs! His mortal enemies, against whom Iraq fought probably the bloodiest war since WWII are next door."
they pretty much took over the entire federal agriculture department during the cold war (and today)
Indeed he was. And they killed him.
Someone please inform Ms. Thomas that it actually started in 1917.
Oh. That explains Hank Kimball.
