8. The pro-nazi dictator of Paraquay Alfredo Stroessner and Moon
and Joseph Mengele.

Stroessner just died this past August at the age of 93. He lived in exile since 1989 and avoided continuous efforts at extradition for terrorist activities.

Stroessner showed definite sympathies to ex-Nazis and ex-Fascists, many of whom were in the approximately 200,000 Germans who came to Paraguay after the World War II, a group that included the infamous Dr. Josef Mengele, whom Stroessner repeatedly denied extradition requests to Israel. After twice denying extradition requests for Mengele, Stroessner was heavily criticized by the world media. Stroessner also used ex-Fascist officers and soldiers in the army of Paraguay, some of whom belonged to the Ustae like the army officer Baresc.<1>
