During a game recently I headlined Red Scare Purge as USSR. U.S. headlined five year plan and pulled defectors out of my hand. Is RSP still in effect or does defectors retroactively cancel its effect?

From the FAQ:
A: If the event that caused Defectors to be played would be executed before the USSR event, then that event is canceled. If the USSR event has already been executed, it is not canceled.

Cheers!

So in your specific case, RSP is still in effect.

But, for example, if you had headlined Liberation Theology, that would be cancelled because 5YP shot off first, pulled Defectors, and then Defectors cancelled your headline that hadn't happened yet.
