As I'm not privy to White House documents, I'll have to go with what the government STATED was the primary goal...Containment of communism. The idea was that A) The U.S. would not invade communists countries, but they would do whatever it took to prevent communism to spread into other countries and B) Would use counter-intelligence to undermine the government of countries under the Soviet.
