It was and remains a coup attempt...
For those who don’t know, Yalta and Potsdam were summit meetings that resulted in Soviet control of Eastern Europe. These meetings also facilitated the Soviet invasion of Manchuria and — thanks to the “Marshall mission” to China — led to the victory of the communists in the Chinese Civil War. It was through these events, supplemented by further decades of “retreat from victory” under Marshall’s successors (Walt Rostow, Henry Kissinger, Brent Scowcroft, et al.) that so many countries fell to our enemies (e.g., much of Africa, Vietnam, Cambodia, Iran, etc.). But then a funny thing happened: we claimed victory over communism in the Cold War. Think of it this way: We lose, we retreat, and after four decades we somehow win. Or, rather, the communists tell us we won. And the very next thing that happens? Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton go to the White House. Years later, Obama goes to the White House. And now, when we dare to elect a anticommunist to the presidency, there is this outpouring of fury and rage, followed by accusations of treason, by investigations into bribery and extortion and obstruction, etc.
