1) If Defectors is a forced discard from the Russian hand, does the US gain the VP? Discarded events don't play, but in this case, the card text may contradict.

2) US Played Red Scare in the Headline Phase. Later on, Russia hosts the Olympics and the US boycotts. Does Russia get 4 Ops or only 3 for the boycott?

No.

3, since the card says "as if they played a 4 ops card".

r.e. 2 - The text on my Olympic Games card reads: "...and the sponsor may spend four Operations points..."

An older version of the card maybe?
