FDR 'Covered Up Soviet Atrocity to Appease Stalin'
Newsmax ^ | 10 Sep 2012

Posted on 06/27/2013 9:25:33 AM PDT by george76

American POWS sent secret coded messages to Washington with news of a Soviet atrocity: In 1943 they saw rows of corpses in an advanced state of decay in the Katyn forest, on the western edge of Russia, proof that the killers could not have been the Nazis who had only recently occupied the area.

The testimony about the infamous massacre of Polish officers might have lessened the tragic fate that befell Poland under the Soviets, some scholars believe. Instead, it mysteriously vanished into the heart of American power. The long-held suspicion is that President Franklin Delano Roosevelt didn't want to anger Josef Stalin

FDR did not do anything different from what Stalin himself would have done if he were President.

Doesn’t surprise me. Totalitarian regimes want their people dumb-easier to control them. Think Pol Pot and the U.S. education system.

FDR is a President on a par with Carter and “O”.

I don't see any difference.

FDR's shenanigans with Chiang Kai-shek ALONE were a lesson in double dealing and criminal malfeasance! I'd be hard put to say which of these two criminals was a greater liar and con!

forget about the Polish soldiers- the Soviets admittedly held 22,000 American POW’s at the end of WWII and only returned upon protest:

Nor will it be news when obama kills millions of Americans.

FDR was a Progressive tyrant, to be sure. But even he did not take his shoes off in a Shinto temple 4 days after Pearl Harbor to tell us the Japanese people were peaceful and only their radical leaders were the enemy. Dubya did this 4 days after 9/11, declaring Islam the ‘religion of peace” in a filty, Muslim Brotherhood-linked mosque, while smoke was still rising over the WTC. I will forever hate him for that. He tied one hand behind our collective backs that day.

The Katyn massacre was one of many such crimes by Stalin. Robert Gellately's new book, Stalin's Curse, covers a lot of them (WWII and postwar period until Stalin's death in 1953). Neither FDR or Churchill come out looking very well--Stalin knew what he wanted and could run circles around them. He never wavered from his core belief that the "bourgeois" countries were the enemy, even when they were aiding him against the Germans.

A lot of the "show trials" in the Eastern bloc countries happened because of pressure from Stalin. A disproportionate number of those tried and found guilty were Jewish.

An amazing review of the FDR sham can be found in “The Roosevelt Myth” by John T. Flynn. Obastard is repeating most of the path FDR took to bastardize the Constitution and accumulate ultimate power to himself. He built a mythology around himself, his family, his party that has been reinstituted by der Fuehrer. He had no problems licking Old Joe’s shoes whenever he was ordered to do so.

FDR was as communist as Stalin.

That's an interesting statement, bray.

I doubt Franklin Roosevelt was ever a full communist, which would have been far too risky a move for a presidential candidate to make; conversely, I'm sure he hired communists and placed them in positions of great authority. Was he a communist dupe, a communist sympathizer, or a so-called "progressive" who figured he'd use communists for his own purposes? I can't say, but have a hunch history will.

The more interesting question is this: was Stalin a communist?

That leads to a still more interesting question: was Lenin a communist?

I believe both were thoroughly evil creatures who used communism as their paths to power. I believe the highest goal for both—and Mao, and Castro, et alia—was mass murder. If some other ideology had been available and looked likely to help them achieve the ultimate power, they'd have chosen that rather than communism. Ultimately, it's always about mass murder.

Soviet General Blokhin personally shot 7,000 of the Polish prisoners, one at a time, in the back of the head using a pistol. He worked in a small execution chamber and as each prisoner was led in, Blokhin would step up behind him and shoot him. It took him many weeks to complete the job. He was highly praised by Stalin.

Let me provide you a short excerpt about what were American governments thoughts on atrocities commited by it's Soviet "ally":

Karski met with Polish politicians in exile including the Prime Minister, as well as members of political parties such as the Socialist Party, National Party, Labor Party, People's Party, Jewish Bund and Poalei Zion. He also spoke to the British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden, giving a detailed statement on what he had seen in Warsaw and Bełżec. In 1943 in London he met the journalist Arthur Koestler (author of Darkness at Noon). He then traveled to the United States and reported to President Franklin D. Roosevelt. In July 1943 Karski again personally reported to Roosevelt about the situation in Poland. Karski met with many other government and civic leaders in the United States, including Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter, Cordell Hull, William Joseph Donovan, and Stephen Wise. Frankfurter, skeptical of Karski's report, said later "I did not say that he was lying, I said that I could not believe him. There is a difference."[7] Karski presented his report to media, bishops of various denominations (including Cardinal Samuel Stritch), members of the Hollywood film industry and artists, but without much result. His warning about the Yalta solution and the plight of stateless peoples became an inspiration for the formation of the Office of High Commissioner for Refugees after the war.[8] In 1944 Karski published Courier from Poland: The Story of a Secret State (with a selection featured in Collier's six weeks before the book's publication),[9][10] in which he related his experiences in wartime Poland. The book was a major success (a film of it was planned but never realized) with more than 400,000 copies sold alone in the United States up to the end of World War II.[citation needed]

Please have a look at the bio of this brave and commited person:
Jan Karski

The Red Cross was informed by the Germans about Katyn.

They examined the bodies etc. and reported that the Germans were correct and that they were executed by the Russians.

The Allies just ignored them.

There is also a fantastic series (featuring many of the same actors from ‘Katyn’) called ‘Czas Honoru’ (Time of Honor), about the Polish Underground during and after the war, when they were hunted down by the Soviets.

Was he a communist dupe, a communist sympathizer, or a so-called "progressive" who figured he'd use communists for his own purposes? I can't say, but have a hunch history will.

Your questions and many others are answered in Diana West's well-researched new book, "American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation's Character." Roosevelt was definitely a Stalin dupe, and the conclusion West reaches is simply astonishing to anyone who thinks they know the real history of WWII. So many crucial facts have been suppressed or destroyed it boggles my mind.

Adolph made a mess of an key industrial state. Lenin and his son Stalin made a mess of a backward state. I’m talking pre-WWII. That’s why, I figure, the West allied itself with the mass murderer Stalin before Hitler even became one.

I heartily second your recommendation! This magnificent film literally "pushes your face" into the brutality of the Soviets - what's more, it shows the horrors inflicted on the Polish people who, although they knew full well who was responsible, faced immediate and severe punishment if they even hinted at the truth. The scenes where a young woman tried to put up a memorial with her father's true date of death on it were particularly heartbreaking.

Be prepared, however for a film that makes no attempt to shield you from the ghastliness (My wife was unable to watch it all the way through.)
