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."
