This paper discusses the US ignorance of Stalin's crimes for political and diplomatic purposes. It particularly assesses the degree to which the Soviet rule managed to undergo a massive purge in the years preceding World War Two without being controlled or stopped by any additional forces, such as the Western countries. The paper briefly discusses the historical background for the era, including the situation in Europe and in Russia at the time.
