Last Nazi Fugitive From Justice Dies; CIA Still Not Held Accountable For Protecting Him And His Cronies

Operation Paperclip was the innocuous-sounding name given to the CIA operation which allowed Nazi rats to infiltrate America after World War II. Well, the last rat, Oscar Holderer, died yesterday, and now it’s time to expose the true history of the disgraceful operation.

The below article, publicizing the death of the last Nazi rocket scientist smuggled into the USA by the CIA, appeared on a site called AL.com, an Alabama news site. Typical of the shoddy, misleading “journalism” practiced in the Deep South, the writer, some lazy, misinformed idiot named Lee Roop, nowhere in the article mentions the word “Nazi.” Yet that’s exactly who Holderer was—a murderous, Hitler-loving, America-hating Nazi. He brought not only his rocket technology to America, but also his fascist ideology. When he was smuggled into this country by the CIA, the Agency put him and his Nazi cronies in the perfect place—Alabama, where bigotry, hatred, narrow-mindedness and superior-race supremacy ruled. They must have felt right at home in the land where blacks (like European Jews) were subjugated to vicious, tyrannical attacks by white men. It galls me that these fascists were not hanged at Nuremberg for their war crimes. Instead they lived upper-middle-class lives and were accorded the deference of protected scientists and privileged whites in the segregated South. Now that the last one of these barbarous, ruthless bastards has died, it is time for the full truth to be known. The CIA must declassify the files of Operation Paperclip so that the American people can see the full extent of their atrocities, not only in Germany, but here in America where they were aided and abetted by Allen Dulles and the CIA.

There were thousands of Nazis given safe passage to America under the cover of Operation Paperclip. During the war they worked for Wernher von Braun, who became the most famous rocket scientist in America. In Germany the Nazi rocket scientists worked either at the Peenemunde research and launching site on the Baltic Sea, or they oversaw the production of their rockets at Mittelwerk factories. Mittelwerk used slave laborers provided by the Dora concentration camp. Thousands of these laborers were worked to death, starved to death, or beaten to death by Paperclip Nazis. Even von Braun knew about it; he made several trips to Mittelwerk to oversee production of the rockets he designed.

One of von Braun’s collaborators, General Walter Dornberger, got a cozy job with Bell Aeronautics and Helicopter of Dallas/Fort Worth after the war. There he rose to the position of Vice-President where he worked alongside Michael Paine (descended from the Forbes and the Cabots of the Eastern aristocracy). You may not know that Michael Paine was married to Ruth Paine, landlady of Lee Harvey Oswald and family. Ruth Paine has deep CIA roots, and she helped implicate Oswald with her eyewitness account to the Dallas Police and her Warren Commission testimony. If you think this is one giant coincidence, think again. Ruth and Michael Paine had very personal ties to Allen Dulles, ex-CIA head fired by Kennedy after the CIA’s Bay of Pigs fiasco. Dulles was appointed to the Warren Commission, aka Operation Whitewash, by Lyndon Johnson. How much Dornberger knew of the plot to kill JFK is unknown, but there are those who suspect he is the source of the first call to Dallas Police falsely implicating Oswald as the assassin.

Here is the Alabama on-line article. Notice how it sanitizes and soft-sells Holderer.

Oscar Holderer dies, last of Wernher von Braun’s original ‘Operation Paperclip’ moon
rocket team”

“Oscar Carl Holderer, the last member of Dr. Wernher von Braun’s original “Operation Paperclip” team that built the Saturn V moon rocket, died Tuesday in Huntsville, Ala. He was 95.
“Born in Preum, Germany, on Nov. 4, 1919, Holderer was an engineer who worked with von Braun on rockets in Germany before coming to the United States. He arrived in 1945 in the second group of German scientists and technicians brought to America after the war in the Army program called “Operation Paperclip.” He was “proud” of becoming an American citizen in 1955, his obituary notes.
“Holderer would say that he was not one of Huntsville’s famous rocket scientists, but he was one of the best engineers in a city famous for engineering accomplishments. The wind tunnel used by NASA to test the Saturn V – and still used today – was Holderer’s design. He held 19 patents at the time of his death.
“Holderer made other significant contributions to Alabama after retiring from NASA including designing the multi-access trainer, low-gravity trainer and other equipment used by more than 600,000 campers at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center’s Space Camp.
“When it was decided to place a Saturn 1B rocket at the Alabama welcome center on I-65 at the Tennessee state line, Holderer was the engineer who guided the installation.
“Holderer was unlike his famous colleagues, who moved to homes near each other on top of or near Huntsville Monte Sano mountain. He designed and built the home he lived in for 61 years in northwest Huntsville near the Huntsville country club. Visitors were sometimes offered tours of his large, spotless and meticulously arranged home machine shop.”

For those who argue that if we did not use these scientists the Russians would have, let me propose a more moral, sane, and appropriate disposition. These Nazis should have been tried at Nuremberg as war criminals. They should have been executed for their crimes against humanity; instead they were given new lives, jobs and homes in America by the CIA. Along with their rocket knowledge came their toxic, filthy ideologies…right at home in Alabama.

We lost our moral superiority when we permitted these Nazi vermin to emigrate to America. It leaves one asking, “Why did we fight the war in the first place?”



JFK Assassination Update: Last Warren Commission Members Left Alive Keep Lying; CIA Keeps Covering Up

Today NewsMax, a quasi- independent online media outlet, is reporting the latest obfuscation by old and decrepit JFK assassination investigators—Burt Griffin, David Slawson, and Robert Blakey. Slawson and Griffin are outright liars; Blakey is trying to redeem himself.

According to NewsMax, “In separate interviews with The Associated Press, Burt Griffin and fellow staff counsel David Slawson stood by the Warren Commission’s conclusions. Each pointed to a series of personal rejections behind Oswald’s deadly action: Weeks after he made an unsuccessful attempt in Mexico City to get a visa to Cuba, his wife Marina rejected his attempts to reconcile their rocky marriage. It was during Oswald’s visit, the night before the shooting, to the suburban Dallas home where his wife and two young daughters were staying that he packed up his disassembled Mannlicher-Carcano rifle to take to work the next day, the Warren Commission determined. That next morning, he removed his wedding ring, left his money with his wife, and departed to carry out the assassination.”

“‘If she had taken him back,” Slawson said, “he wouldn’t have done it.’”

There is so much disinformation and deception in that report that it is hard to know where to begin. First of all, there is absolutely no evidence that Marina and Lee Oswald were breaking up. They’d had a turbulent relationship for years and, yet, had stayed married. Why do Slawson and Griffin presume Marina was not taking him back? They were not living together full time as it was, but Lee and Marina saw each other every weekend at Ruth Paine’s house. (Author’s note: Ruth Paine was a CIA covert operative who was married at the time to Michael Paine, Bell Helicopter employee with a CIA security clearance. Conveniently, both the Paines and Oswalds maintained separate residences from their spouses in order to confuse and divert future investigators from more closely linking and examining their relationships and their intelligence links.) The only reason Griffin and Slawson make their wild speculation about that particular weekend is that JFK was assassinated on that Friday, and they have to provide some motivation for the presumed (incorrectly so) killer. You see, the Warren Commission never could come up with a believable motive for Oswald. Some, like Griffin and Slawson, say he wanted to do something earth-shattering to make himself feel important, or to impress others, like his wife. Just one minor problem, OSWALD DENIED HAVING ANYTHING TO DO WITH JFK’s MURDER! Oops, scratch that desperate attempt at assigning motive.

The other investigator named in the NewsMax story was G. Robert Blakey, head of the House Select Committee on Assassinations that conducted its business in the mid-1970s. According to NewsMax, “there were mountains of material considered by the committee, some of it from the CIA. And the CIA’s liaison to the committee was none other than George Joannides, by then retired from the agency. Blakey, the committee’s chief counsel, recalled how the CIA brought in Joannides to act as a middleman to help fill requests for documents made by committee researchers. ‘He was put in a position to edit everything we were given before it was given to us,’ Blakey said.

“But Blakey didn’t learn about Joannides’ past until Morley unearthed it in files declassified years later.

‘If I’d known Joannides was the case officer for the DRE, he couldn’t have been liaison; he would have been a witness,’ Blakey told The Associated Press.

“Blakey added: ‘Do I think I was snookered, precisely like the Warren Commission was? Yes.’”

The article then circles back to the still-secret investigative files—about 300 pages of which relate to Joannides. The question needs to be asked: Why after 50 years is the CIA still withholding evidence? What is it hiding?



JFK Conspiracy Fact #26: There is Blatant Evidence of Military-Industrial-Intelligence Complex Involvement

If the murder of JFK had ever been seriously prosecuted, there would have been plenty of suspects to indict…most of them with connections to what President Eisenhower called “the military-industrial complex.” One of the primary suspects would have been D.H. Byrd, Dallas millionaire/businessman and close friend of LBJ, the man who had the most to gain from Kennedy’s death. Byrd was a right-wing radical who had close associations with other Kennedy haters in Dallas, including H.L. Hunt, Clint Murchison, Sid Richardson, George H.W. Bush, David Atlee Phillips, and Neil Mallon. Byrd, with the help of his great friend, Curtis LeMay (Air Force chief of staff and profound Kennedy hater), formed the Civil Air Patrol. CAP members included Lee Harvey Oswald, James Bath (drug-running buddy of George W. Bush), John Liggett, David Ferrie, and others, all of whom were recruited into the CIA. Byrd also owned Ling-Temco-Vought, which built fighter planes. After LBJ became president and started the Vietnam War, Ling-Temco-Vought got a huge defense contract to build fighter planes for the Air Force. Oh, and did I mention, Byrd also owned the Texas School Book Depository building.

Oswald was steered to the job at the TSBD by his CIA handler, Ruth Paine, the Oswald family landlady. Ruth was married to Michael Paine, engineer at Bell Helicopter of Dallas/Fort Worth, another big Vietnam defense contractor. Michael was descended from American royalty, the Forbes family, on one side…and from the inventor of the Bell helicopter on the other. Bell made a fortune off its Huey helicopters. Michael’s boss at Bell was one Walter Dornberger, ex-Nazi V-2 rocket engineer who should have been hanged at Nuremberg for war crimes. He was saved from the hangman’s noose by Allen Dulles and the CIA (OSS at the time) in 1946 through Operation Paperclip which evacuated Nazi scientists, doctors, spies, and engineers to the US. It was Dulles who placed Dornberger with Bell, under the auspices of the CIA and the military-industrial complex. Dulles’s mistress, Mary Bancroft, was best friends with Michael Paine’s mother.

From page 170 of James Douglass’s book JFK And The Unspeakable: “Ruth Hyde Paine, Michael’s wife and Marina Oswald’s caregiver, was the daughter of William Avery Hyde. From October 1964 to August 1967, Hyde was the AID (Agency For International Development) Regional Insurance Advisor for all of Latin America. Hyde’s job description was to provide technical assistance from the US State Department to insurance cooperatives being launched in south and central America. A later AID director, former Ohio governor John Gilligan, admitted that ‘AID field offices were infiltrated from top to bottom with CIA people. It was pretty well-known in the agency who they were and what they were up to…The idea was to plant operatives in every kind of activity we had overseas, government, volunteer, religious, every kind.'”

Ruth Hyde Paine was also the younger sister of Sylvia Hyde Hoke…[a declassified] CIA Security File memorandum…noted that Sylvia Hoke was identified as a CIA employee.”
The salient point here is that Ruth Paine was CIA and so was her family. We know Allen Dulles was CIA…and here he was with direct connections to the patsy’s handler, the defense contractor which reaped billions off LBJ’s war, and the commission which whitewashed the assassination. This makes Allen a key operative in the planning and aftermath.

When the CIA/military-industrial complex removed the president, all their greedy, conscienceless, sociopathic defense contractors got rich on the blood of dead soldiers in Vietnam. Just like in Iraq. Halliburton KBR and Blackwater got their billions, and the ruthless warmongers got their bloodlust fix.

The murder of JFK was the seminal moment of the 20th century, for it is when the American war state and its contractors, using the CIA as their executive action arm, took over the country and insured that the presidency would never be open to again to one such as Kennedy–a free-thinking iconoclast, who stood up for us against the dark forces which run America for their own benefit.
