    Why wouldn't he? The SS was an elite military organization, they wanted to avoid persecution, and Castro wanted a better army. Makes sense to me. We did it, the British did it, the Russians did it, as did everyone else who could get their hands on nazi's willing to give out beneficial information and research.

    Doesn't change anything, and it doesn't surprise me at all that anyone would hire the SS to help them unsuck their armed forces.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    What did poor little Castro do to you and your imperial fascist US military that slaughters the defenseless and theives their resources on behalf of its corporate masters?

    You couldnt buy him off like all the other tyrants the US purchases and blackmails EVEN TODAY and then betrays them when their use by date expires (like Mubarak, Sadam Hussein, Gadaffi etc etc etc)

    the level of myopic hypocrisy in here is breath taking - lol

    In the interest of clarity, the rocket scientists were used weren't members of the Shutzstaffel.

    In the interest of truthfulness, Operation Paperclip was set up to remove and refresh the Nazi pasts of 104 German rocket scientists, including Werner Von Braun himself.

    Yeah, that's what Paperclip was designed to do.

    Operation Paperclip was the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) program used to recruit the scientists of Nazi Germany for employment by the United States in the aftermath of World War II (1939–45). It was conducted by the Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency (JIOA), and in the context of the burgeoning Soviet–American Cold War (1945–91). One purpose of Operation Paperclip was to deny German scientific knowledge and expertise to the USSR,[1] the UK,[2] and (divided) Germany itself.

    I agree...

    During Noriega's dictatorship *Panama*, he hired elite Israeli commandos

    The Army's CIC screened all applicants who wished to come to the United States under the 1948 Displaced Persons Act and later the 1953 Refugee Relief Act. U.S. authorities rejected thousands of visa applicants for suspected wartime activities. Between 1945 and 1955, 765 scientists, engineers, and technicians were brought to the United States under Paperclip and other similar programs. In contrast, 6,000 were taken to Russia. Eventually many German scientists became American citizen. For most this was a dream come true.

    Many allegations of Nazi war criminals living in the US were made. According to a 1978 General Accounting Office report “Widespread Conspiracy To Obstruct Probes of Alleged Nazi War Criminals Not Supported By Available Evidence”. Allegations were made on 1982 that Federal agencies made a conscious effort to bring Nazi war criminals into this country and protect them once they were admitted. On May 1982, the House Committee on the Judiciary, requested the General Accounting Office to reopen its 1978 investigation to determine whether there were any U.S. Government programs to help Nazi war criminals and Axis collaborators immigrate to the United States and to conceal their backgrounds. The GAO informed Congress in June 1985 that it had found no evidence of any U.S. agency program to aid Nazis or Axis collaborators to immigrate to the United States.

Its main purpose was to benefit from German scientific knowledge, and at the same time avoid that Russia benefit from it.

    Truman expressly excluded anyone found “to have been a member of the Nazi Party, and more than a ‘nominal participant’ in its activities, or an active supporter of Nazi militarism.” The War Department's Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency was in charge of conducting background investigations of the scientists. Based on these investigations the US government granted the scientists security clearance to work in the US. Despite the repeated and emphatic official statements that none of the Paperclip personnel were ardent Nazis or alleged war criminals, the critics assumed the Fascist nature of their past behavior and affirmed their guilt.

    EVERYBODY picked at the Nazi carcass.

    Newly Declassified Files Confirm United States Collaboration with Nazis
    by Martin A. Lee

    "Honest and idealist ... enjoys good food and wine ... unprejudiced mind ..."
    That's how a 1952 Central Intelligence Agency assessment described Nazi ideologue Emil Augsburg, an officer at the infamous Wannsee Institute, the SS think tank involved in planning the Final Solution. Augsburg's SS unit performed "special duties," a euphemism for exterminating Jews and other "undesirables" during the Second World War.

    Although he was wanted in Poland for war crimes, Augsburg managed to ingratiate himself with the U.S. CIA, which employed him in the late 1940s as an expert on Soviet affairs. Recently released CIA records indicate that Augsburg was among a rogue's gallery of Nazi war criminals recruited by U.S. intelligence shortly after Germany surrendered to the Allies.

    Pried loose by Congress, which passed the Nazi War Crimes Disclosure Act three years ago, a long-hidden trove of once-classified CIA documents confirms one of the worst-kept secrets of the Cold War – the CIA's use of an extensive Nazi spy network to wage a clandestine campaign against the Soviet Union.
