Documents show post-war CIA covered up Nazi war crimes
By Shmuel Rosner, Haaretz Correspondent

The United States was aware that West Germany held information on the whereabouts of Adolf Eichmann in the 1950s, but chose to keep the matter secret, fearing that the arrest of the Nazi fugitive might lead to
embarrassing revelations about links between senior German officials and other Nazis.

This information, as well as the pressure that West Germany applied on the Central Intelligence Agency in order to prevent the leak of this sensitive information, is detailed in hundreds of newly declassified documents released by the U.S. government Tuesday.

The government released a total of 27,000 CIA documents related to Nazi war crimes during World War II on Tuesday morning. The documents include information on the employment of Nazi war criminals by the American intelligence agency.

The documents were declassified as part of an interagency effort to release material related to Japanese and German war criminals during World War II. Since the work commenced in 1999, more than eight million documents have been released.

2. We've known about this for years, in fact many Nazi's and.............
.....even some Japanese were able to avoid prosecution by being brought to this country for their scientific and medical knowledge. This has been known for a long time.

3. Right. We freaking HIRED them in our gov't & gave them new identities!
Certain SS Officers actually duped our gov't into believing they had top secret knowledge on the soviets (this was the start of the Cold War), and the Nazis strung them along long enough to get them and their Nazi officer friends asylum in the USA.

This is a well-known, documented fact that you can learn about from any number of History Channel programs.

And by the way, they had no real info on the Soviets, so we gave safe haven to these Nazi animals for NOTHING.
