US complicit in Katyn cover-up

Katyn massacre

Katyn

Newly released documents seem to prove that the Roosevelt administration deliberately and cold-bloodedly helped the Russians to cover up the Katyn massacre of 1940. Why? Because they didn’t want to upset Stalin.

Over 22,000 Polish citizens – the elite of Polish society at the time – were systematically massacred in the woods of Katyn, a forest on the western fringes of Russia.

“Three years later American prisoners of war sent secret coded messages to Washington with news of the massacre after seeing rows of corpses in an advanced state of decay in the forest, proof that the killers could not have been the Nazis who had only recently occupied the area”, the Independent reports. [1]

These newly-declassified revelations seem to knock a massive hole in all the rubbish we hear from a certain part of the world, about ‘defending values, freedom, democracy, abolishing tyranny’, and so on.

Keeping cosy with Stalin – huh!
