More Proof That CIA Hired Mass-Murdering Nazis

Upon publication of my first novel, Murder Of An American Nazi, I was ridiculed in many quarters for having the audaciousness and affrontery to suggest that the CIA hired thousands of Nazis after World War II to help do its dirty work. The central thesis of my novel is that Allen Dulles and other American spymasters employed these mass murderers to spy on the communists, indoctrinate U.S. intelligence in torture techniques learned in the Nazi death camps, show the CIA how to use LSD as a mind control drug, and develop space rocketry and weapons for American use in the Cold War (see Operation Paperclip). As the years have passed, and I’ve been proven right, my detractors have cowered back under the slimy rocks from which they emerged, because they have no ground on which to stand. The declassification of millions of CIA documents have exposed more immoral, ruthless, and senseless Nazi collaboration than even I had imagined.

The latest CIA misdeeds are chronicled in the Toronto Globe and Mail, in an article written by Eric Lichtblau. (God forbid an American paper should report on CIA atrocities; of course, most American media outlets have been CIA assets for the last half-century anyway [see Operation Mockingbird]. The establishment hacks have howled at me about this assertion too.) Lichtblau writes:

“One SS officer (hired by the CIA), Otto von Bolschwing, was a mentor and top aide to Adolf Eichmann, architect of the “Final Solution,” and wrote policy papers on how to terrorize Jews.

“Yet after the war, the CIA not only hired him as a spy in Europe, but relocated him and his family to New York City in 1954, records show. The move was seen as ‘a reward for his loyal postwar service and in view of the innocuousness of his [Nazi] party activities,’ the agency wrote.

“His son, Gus von Bolschwing, who learned many years later of his father’s ties to the Nazis, sees the relationship between the spy agency and his father as one of mutual convenience forged by the Cold War. ‘They used him, and he used them,’ Gus von Bolschwing, now 75, said in an interview. ‘It shouldn’t have happened. He never should have been admitted to the United States. It wasn’t consistent with our values as a country.’

“When Israeli agents captured Eichmann in Argentina in 1960, Otto von Bolschwing went to the CIA for help because he worried they might come after him, memos show.

“Agency officials were worried as well that von Bolschwing might be named as Eichmann’s ‘collaborator and fellow conspirator and that the resulting publicity may prove embarrassing to the U.S.,’ a CIA official wrote.

“After two agents met with von Bolschwing in 1961, the agency assured him that it would not disclose his ties to Eichmann, records show. He lived freely for another 20 years before prosecutors discovered his wartime role and prosecuted him. He agreed to give up his citizenship in 1981, dying months later.

“In all, the American military, the CIA, the FBI and other agencies used at least 1,000 ex-Nazis and collaborators as spies and informants after the war, according to Richard Breitman, a Holocaust scholar at American University who was on a government-appointed team that declassified war-crime records.

“The full tally of Nazis-turned-spies is probably much higher, said Norman Goda, a University of Florida historian on the declassification team, but many records remain classified even today, making a complete count impossible.

“ ‘U.S. agencies directly or indirectly hired numerous ex-Nazi police officials and East European collaborators who were manifestly guilty of war crimes,” he said. “Information was readily available that these were compromised men.’

“None of the spies are known to be alive today.

“The wide use of Nazi spies grew out of a Cold War mentality shared by two titans of intelligence in the 1950s: Hoover, the longtime FBI director, and Dulles, the CIA director.

“Dulles believed ‘moderate’ Nazis might ‘be useful’ to the United States, records show. Hoover, for his part, personally approved some ex-Nazis as informants and dismissed accusations of their wartime atrocities as Soviet propaganda.

“In 1968, Hoover authorized the FBI to wiretap a left-wing journalist who wrote critical stories about Nazis in the U.S., internal records show. Hoover declared the journalist, Charles Allen, a potential threat to national security.

“John Fox, the bureau’s chief historian, said: ‘In hindsight, it is clear that Hoover, and by extension the FBI, was shortsighted in dismissing evidence of ties between recent German and East European immigrants and Nazi war crimes. It should be remembered, though, that this was at the peak of Cold War tensions.’

“The CIA declined to comment for this article.”

New Book Confirms That U.S. Intelligence Employed Nazis

 

Regular readers of this blog are well aware of my assertions of U.S. intelligence malfeasance and atrocities after World War II, including granting asylum and new lives to the most despicable Nazi war criminals imaginable (the CIA’s Operation Paperclip).  Independent corroboration of my assertions continues to present itself.
 
An article in today’s online version of Business Standard confirms that Operation Paperclip did in fact exist, and it involved the highest echelons of U.S. intelligence in collusion with some of the worst Nazi war criminals of World War II.  In essence what our government did was hire Nazis instead of prosecuting them for the murder of six million innocent European citizens.
 
A new book has laid bare some of the facets of the controversial plan to bring Nazi scientists to the US.
 
“In ‘Operation Paperclip: The Secret Intelligence Program to Bring Nazi Scientists to America’ author Annie Jacobsen uses newly released documents, court transcripts, and family-held archives to give the fullest accounting yet of the plan – one shared by the British, the French, and the Russians, all of whom enlisted and embraced top Nazis, the New York Post reported.
 
“The Department of Defense had created a top-secret, elite task force called the Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency, or JOIA. They were subordinate to the Joint Intelligence Committee, which briefed the Joint Chiefs of Staff on national security threats.
 
“Jacobsen said that within one year of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the JIC warned the Joint Chiefs of Staff that the US needed to prepare for ‘total war’ with the Soviets- and to include atomic, chemical, and biological warfare – and that they even set an estimated start date of 1952.
 
“Unofficial US policy held that it was imperative to secretly bring in those Nazis who could accelerate USA’s scientific, technological and economic advancement.
 
“The Allies held elite Nazis in two luxurious locales: the Palace Hotel in Luxembourg, renamed ‘Ashcan,’ and Crane Mountain Castle in Hesse, Germany, renamed ‘Dustbin.’
 
“These were the places where the most wicked Nazis lounged in well-appointed rooms, strolled through apple orchards, played chess, smoked and drank, and gave each other lectures in grand halls.”

CIA’s Skeletons Are Being Unearthed: And The Atrocities Are Ugly

The brave few who have challenged the intelligence establishment in this country are slowly eroding the walls the CIA has built around its dirtiest secrets.  The Freedom of Information Act provides all citizens the right to peruse the documents we paid for, regardless of which clandestine agency created them and how heinous the crimes reported therein.  Thus, some day, hopefully soon, the true story of the CIA’s sordid history will be revealed for all to see.

Under great pressure from those who have filed civil suits, the National Security Archive has posted several documents relating to the overthrow of Iranian Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh in 1953.  For those of you who need a quick history refresher, Mossadegh was Iran’s legitimately elected leader who just happened to have populist/socialist leanings, and, as such, threatened U.S. business interests in the region–specifically the oil industry.  Mossadegh was beloved by the Iranian people, but he was deemed unsuitable by the CIA (Corporations Invisible Army) and was thus overthrown.  An iron-fisted totalitarian was installed; perhaps you’ll remember him: the Shah of Iran.  Despised by the people for his political oppression and his overt corruption, the Shah did a profitable business with U.S. oil companies for a quarter century.  When the Iranian people finally took action in the late ’70s, the Shah was deposed and American embassy workers were taken hostage.  The hostage crisis lasted 15 months, toppled the Carter administration and ushered in the era of Reagan.  But the genesis of the crisis can be fully blamed on the U.S. itself, namely the CIA and its corporate allies, for intervening in a sovereign nation’s right to determine its own destiny.

This was standard operating procedure for the CIA, which overthrew socialist and communist leaders across the globe from the 1940s on.  Among their other clandestine tricks were the rescue and repatriation of Nazi war criminals after World War II and the subversion of the free press in America.  Operations we are learning more about each day.

The work of incorporating Nazis into our intelligence apparatus, space programs, medical research, and weapons technology was called Operation Sunrise or Operation Paperclip.  Among the well-known “Paperclip Nazis” were:

Wernher von Braun, Nazi V-2 rocket scientist who worked on guided missiles and manned rocket programs for the U.S.  He was named Director of NASA’s Space Flight Center, and, despite his questionable past, became somewhat of a celebrity in the 1960s.  At no time was he forced to publicly renounce his Nazi ideology or made to pay for his war crimes. (He used slave labor camps to build his rockets in Nazi Germany.  Thousands died of starvation and brutality in these camps.)  A CIA-sponsored feature film, called I Aim For The Stars, was even made which honored his courage and audacity.   

Kurt Blome, Nazi chemist who performed cruel experiments on death camp prisoners.  He was hired by the U.S. Army to develop chemical warfare weapons.

Reinhard Gehlen, Hitler’s top intelligence officer.  He got a job spying on the Soviets for the CIA.  In fact, he cut a deal with the CIA (OSS) to hire practically his entire Third Reich intelligence network.  Much of the information he provided his superiors in U.S. intelligence greatly exaggerated Soviet military capabilities.  Gehlen lied to make himself seem more important and useful to the CIA, and this led directly to the escalation of the Cold War and U.S. military buildup in the 1950s and beyond.

Heinrich Rupp, another Nazi war criminal who went to work for the CIA after World War II.  In 1980 he accompanied George H.W. Bush, Vice Presidential candidate at the time, to cut a deal with Iran to delay the release of American hostages until after the election of the Reagan/Bush ticket in America in November 1980.  The hostages were released on January 20, 1981, just minutes after Reagan and Bush were sworn into office.  In return, Rupp promised release of Iran’s frozen assets, laying the groundwork for the Iran-Contra deal.  So Rupp, the Paperclip Nazi, helped steal an election, control U.S. foreign policy, and helped precipitate one of the worst scandals of the 1980s.

Arthur Rudolph, Operations Director at Mittelwerk factory at the Dora/Nordhausen concentration camps where thousands were worked to death.

Evil as it was, Operation Paperclip was surpassed, some say, by Operation Mockingbird.  Mockingbird was a well-organized, systematic destruction of the free press in America in the second half of the 20th century.  Why destroy the free press?  Because a free and independent press was the CIA’s worst enemy.  Unfettered investigative journalism would have (or at least should have) uncovered the CIA’s dirty secrets and criminal operations.  The CIA needed to operate in secrecy, without threat of being detected, in order to get away with murder, coup d’états, drug running, sabotage of democracies, and covert fascist policies. 

As outlined by reporter Carl Bernstein in a Rolling Stone article in 1977, the CIA co-opted, bribed, threatened, recruited and partnered with media assets at TV networks, newspapers, publishers and radio outlets across the nation.  Frank Wisner, who ran Mockingbird for the CIA in the 1950s, once famously bragged, the program was like his own mighty Wurlitzer, “…I can play any tune I want on it, and America will follow along.”  William Colby, CIA Director under Nixon, added, “The CIA owns everyone of any significance in the major media.”  This meant that it was a simple matter for the agency to print and broadcast propaganda, cover up misdeeds, plant false stories, and smear CIA opponents at will.  I believe this is what prevented an honest journalistic investigation of the JFK assassination.
