The CIA and the NazisSix months after Allied Forces liberated German concentration camps, a military tribunal formed at Nuremberg to prosecute Nazi war criminals. Some of the most dangerous were brought to justice - but not all. Documentary Conspiracy? reveals how over 4,000 former Nazis went to work for the U.S. government, without the public's knowledge, to help fight the Soviet Union. Reinhard Gehlen, an intelligence officer for Hitler's General Staff, was tapped to head the U.S. intelligence program in West Germany to spy on the Russians. At the same time, former Nazi scientists and engineers were welcomed onto American soil. But the extent of these operations is only now becoming clear: In 1998, a law was passed mandating declassification of documents concerning recruitment of former Nazis. CIA AND THE NAZIS examines these files to see how far the U.S. went in recruiting its former enemy to fight its new one.

The truth is, thousands of former Nazis, some of whom committed atrocities, went to work for the United States government without the public's knowledge. During the war, their crimes ranged from overseeing slave labor camps to sending orphans to their deaths. After the war, they were on the US payroll either as scientists in America or as intelligence agents in Europe.

America needs an in depth investigation on George Soros. The master puppet of the Democratic/Nazi Party and the Antifa Brown Shirts.

What about George Soros? Soros was a Jew who became a Nazi to protect himself from persecution. He then committed some of the worst crimes...turning Jews over to the Nazis who were hiding out. He then went in and cleared out all of their possessions. Soros worked for the Mountain Muslim SS brigades in Hungary, one of the most notorious anti-Jew regimes in the German army. Hitler admired his Muslim brigades more than the Christians because of their hatred for Jews and their commitment to die fighting. They loved death more than life.
How did George Soros escape persecution after the war I wonder?

There is evidence the Nazis under IG Farban chemical co. enriched uranium, built a bomb, tested it in the Baltic Sea, all corroborated evidence by multiple sources, had infrared detonators for Plutonium, documents support all this, and then The Allies were either given the bomb by Nazi's who defected and used those bombs in Japan.
The Nazis U-234 , turned over yellow cake to the allies near Norway in
1945, look at books and info by Joseph Farrell.

Russia too absorbed former Nazi scientist but come to think of it the first victims of the NAZI party were Germans. Unless they participate they will suffer and the means to force socialism is by indoctrinating the youth. Even children are taught to spy on their parents.

I AM a victim of the CIA-NAZI association. They have implanted a Mind Microchip on me because of my DNA and they made me a slave for almost 50 years of my life. I am not the only one...there are many victims like me that had their "mind" kidnapped by the one in control inside the evil MKULTRA CIA. They have taken my life ...they have used me and used me ...I wanted to become someone to make a difference in this planet...but they didn't allowed me. What was done to me is a nightmare but worse IS what they ARE still doing to innocent women...CHILDREN..and men by using the MKULTRA- evil NAZI Mind Control Technology on innocent people making them commit terrible crimes.
The CIA together with the NAZI war criminals have committed the worst CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY and it was kept secret until now.
I am here because I sick justice for what was taken from me...(almost 50 years of my life) but most importantly I WANT JUSTICE TO BE MADE FOR ALL THE VICTIMS OF THIS MONSTRUOS CRIME THAT THEY DONT EVEN KNOW ABOUT IT yet- I WANT THE COMPLETE STOP OF ALL AND ANY KIND OF MIND CONTROL EXPERIMENTS that ARE being done by the CIA...United States Government ...Pentagon ...FBI and all others ..and more...I want the ones that created this evil to undo this evil using the same technology they have use JUST THIS TIME TO REVERSE THIS HORRIBLE CRIME THAT THEY COMMITTED.
That will be JUST justice for me and ALL victims of this inhumane crime.

I guess if the fourth reich controls everything then we have actual borders, no third world immigrants or inter-racial marriage? Lol this is just conspiracy, though national socialists are gaining power all over europe. They say germany is the start of the fourth reich again but i doubt it, it is full of far left liberal apathetic nut-jobs who turned their back on their own people. Not saying i welcome nazism, but they are still sell-outs either way lol

American Republicaners need to see this as a training film so they can actually decide if they are American patriots or just another version of the same old killing machine. Republicaners act like supporting the agenda of the framers of our constitution is just...the wrong way to go. If the Republicaners were American patriots we wouldn't have soldiers in any other part of the world. We wouldn't be the cause of a civilian death toll that has exceeded that of Hitler's. These Republicaners are making enemies for the American people that will be hating us for hundreds of years to come. Republicaners are making you live in real fear for your life and the lives of your children.

don't forget the japanese scientists.
after bringing imperial Japan to it's knees with Hiroshima and Nagasaki, they shortly occupied the land, and offered refuge for it's deathdoctors from prosecution in exchange for their advances in the most unethical forms of combat, bio and chemical warfare.

google Unit 731, and go read up on it, Dr Mengele you said ?, ... nothing compared to that.

the U.S. got them too

It is kind of funny how the information in this doc is treated as it is so surprising. Gehlen had an autobiography published in 1972. Anyone who has studied the history of WW2 (even a little bit) would know these things.

The Germans had Jets before UK but didn't have the quality in metal to make the engines last. The Allies were lucky to have Hitler on their side as his hatred of Jews etc hindered his progress in every thing from developing war machines to code breaking. .now worry about the new enemy USA and the Federal Reserve bank which is owned by the banks and answers to no one.

The Politicians of today should really have a vast knowledge of history. If you really look at it, everything is connected and there are patterns etc. It really is stupid of the Americans to work with Nazis. These men are the most loyal,patriotic, nationlistic people of their country, with cold hearts. You may be using their intelligents for your own purposes... however, they're benifiting in some way too. I'm a skeptic of anything that has to do with American politics and this is only an example of that. The American people should have no faith in their government.

It is amazing how history continues to repeat itself. When the U.S attacked Iraq without provocation, American Benjamin Ferenz was livid. (he was the lead prosecutor for the U.S at the Nuremberg trials) The idea of a pre-emptive strike was the Nazi defense for attacking Norway, etc, because they felt they were a threat. (yeah, right) This defense would never fly according to Ferenz because any country that had a weaker military could justify attacking someone more powerful out of fear. Now we have the most powerful nation on earth attacking weaker countries out of fear and justifying it at the United Nations. So who is going to hold Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, etc for war crimes against humanity? Kinda makes for a good case against evolution, when we are going this far backwards in less then 60 years!

Donna is apparently a fascist. And by the way Italy was in bed with Hitler till the last minute and then, like always when facing defeat, jumped sides and somehow came out of the war as victors or so they would like to think. Bunch of panzies!

I hate the way this documentary was edited. Constant flickering images of grainy old photographs mixed with mock vintage footage. Gave me a headache. I stopped watching and just listened to the soundtrack instead. Okay as a 'radio documentary' but would have enjoyed it better as a video documentary! Grr.

The Americans tried Realpolitik and it blew up in their faces. I think the old Frenchman said it for me: the Americans should never have collaborated with the Nazis. They should have tried to do what was just at the end of WW2, in so far as justice can be done by humans in the face of crimes against humanity. If they had done the right thing they could have shortened the Cold War and reduced the number of innocent victims the Cold War and its proxy wars claimed all over the globe. Shameful. But as the CIA guy said it is easy to be wise with the benefit of hindsight.

It's very funny how political correctness takes over at the end of the documentary: Gehlen was providing 90% garbage information and Arthur Rudolph was "just" a good administrator for the Saturn V program. Kind of strange, in my opinion, given that the two were top experts in , probably, the most important fields for WWII Germany war machine. It's like seeing your wife on a tape having sex with a macho and then listening to her claiming that he was actually stinking and it actually happened because he got her drunk.

Well someone had to tell the russians and americans how to build missles and jet aircraft right? Otherwise they would have had problems with their little race to space and their ballistic missles. O_o

Hey eyepopping, stop being a facist and telling people how the should and shouldn't do things. I'm not even sure what your point is? It's like you're disagreeing to agree with them.

Keep posting Nad and Jon, never let your opinions be silenced.

nad..and jona stop being so simple minded and just watching documentaries for entertainment.. if you want to do that than go read a science fiction book or turn on the tv.. their has to be a channel by now for you. This is about real life and how the Government is a mess of its own, "Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master." -- George Washington
