CIA’s Denial of Protecting Nazis is Blatant Lie (Part 1)

by Hank P. Albarelli Jr.
On November 17, 2010 the CIA’s Director of Public Affairs, George Little, wrote a short letter to the editor of the New York Times. Little, on behalf of the agency, protested a just published Times article that detailed CIA “interactions with former Nazi officials in the early years of the post World War II era.” Mr. Little wrote, “We would like to make clear that the agency at no time had a policy or a program to protect Nazi war criminals, or to help them escape justice for their actions during the war.”

While the intent here is not to cast aspersions on Mr. Little— who most likely has little knowledge about the subject in question, and was only issuing protestations at the behest of someone well above him, perhaps DCI Leon Panetta— it is to take strong exception with the CIA’s denial, and to offer ample evidence, taken from the agency’s own files among other government resources, that the denial is blatantly erroneous.

  1. Excellent post. We can thank Mae Brussell for first alerting the American public to the CIA’s expropriation of Nazi war criminals for intelligence purposes (Hitler’s ex-spymaster Reinhard Gehlen ran the CIA’s eastern division for years after WWII – this is a matter of public record) in the late sixties and early seventies. Her interest stemmed from the fact that many of them got into the oil and defense industry and played some role in the JFK assassination. I write about this – and my own close encounter with US intelligence – in my recent memoir: THE MOST REVOLUTIONARY ACT: MEMOIR OF AN AMERICAN REFUGEE (www.stuartbramhall.com). I currently live in exile in New Zealand.
