63. Dr. Mengele financed operations with illegal drugs from his South American redoubt
The Senate's had more than a quarter century. What did they find out?

" . . . according to declassified CIA documents released by two Republican

Mengele's reported involvement in drugs could explain how he was able to
finance his life and travels in South America for years, according to one
of the senators, Alphonse M. D'Amato of New York. One CIA document said
Mengele may have used a farm machinery business in Paraguay 'as a
mechanism to move or launder large sums of money, as well as to cover the
movement of illicit narcotics.'

But the 28 heavily censored pages of long hidden CIA records were often
vague and inconclusive, D'Amato and Sen. Arlen K. Specter of Pennsylvania
acknowledged at a news conference. Because many sentences were blacked
out to conceal the CIA's sources of information about Mengele, it is
difficult to determine what data in the documents might be credible . . .

. . . Referring to the documents, Specter said, 'They're vague, but that's
the starting point for our investigation.'"

Well, whatever they found out they didn't make public. Going by the continued success of the illicit drug trade, it really must be protected at the highest levels of government, as I believe former DCI William Colby was quoted as saying.

Thank you, leveymg, for the important information about finances and the NAZI and the link to Dr. McCloy's excellent work regarding the international narcotics network. Here's what I wanted to add (pardon the roundabout sourcing, time constraints today, but I will be back...).

Please know that I really appreciate the brave work you are doing and have done to expose these traitors. It is an honor to know you.
