Churchill, Roosevelt, and Stalin

Partners in (war) crime — US, Britain hushed up Katyn killings. The report states that "newly declassified documents show" that "US president Franklin D Roosevelt and Britain’s wartime prime minister Winston Churchill hushed up evidence the Soviet secret police had killed thousands of Polish men in the Katyn forest in 1940 for fear of alienating their second World War Russian ally Josef Stalin," and suggests that "the new documents shift the focus to how Washington and London put fears of upsetting the Kremlin before the truth."
