    No, but the rockets they produced were manufactured by slave labor - with their full knowledge - under appalling conditions. And those rockets managed to kill a lot of British and Dutch Civilians prior to the end of the war.

    And some were not. Some enabled the war criminals to commit their crimes.

    S.S. General Hans Kammler, an engineer that supervised the construction of concentration camps, was responsible for using slave labor into the rocket program. He was instrumental in the arrest of von Braun which has been working in the design of the V-2 rocket. Claren G. Lasby in his 1971 book “Paper Clip”, wrote: “In March 1944 the Gestapo learned that von Braun had expressed in public a defeatist attitude about Germany's chances in the war, and a desire to design a spaceship rather than a weapon. Voracious in their demand for control of the V-2 program, the S.S. leaders used this information, together with a trumped-up charge that von Braun had Communist leanings, to imprison him for two weeks.” The intervention of Major-General Dr Walter Robert Dornberger, leader of the V-2 rocker program and other projects at Peenemünde, was instrumental in obtaining von Braun's release, since without him the final design of the V-2 rocket will be in jeopardy. This allowed Kammler to take control of the secret weapon program.
    So Von Braun's 'disappointment' with the Nazi regime had nothing to do with their war crimes but rather that they were losing the war?

    The rockets were built by slaves? Even if that were true, it would be totally idiotic to use slaves to build such a precision piece of equipment.

    Von Braun probably didn't have any idea that those war crimes were being committed.

    Psssst: he used slave Jewish laborers in his own lab, working them to death.

    And of course von Braun is just the tip of the Cold War swatstika.

    I nominate this thread the worst backfire for a conservative OP this year!

    Did you even read that article before you posted it?

    This part is especially interesting:

    In chilling detail, the report also elaborates on the close working relationship between Nazi leaders and the grand mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini,

    And somehow that's supposed to help your argument that Cuba is bad for hiring ex Nazis, but the US isn't, even though the US did it more extensively? Oh, I get it, it's some kind of anti-muslim meme you're injecting into your anti-Cuban meme. Wow.

    Focus, focus.

    Honestly you're embarrassing yourself at this point. You really didn't know that the US protected thousands of ex Nazis in the Cold War did you? You're that uneducated on the topic, but you still posted the OP. Strikingly pitiful.

    What does the Grand Mufti of Jersualem have to do with the fact that slave laborers were worked to death in Von Bruan's own lab?

    I can't wait to hear his incoherent response. This is going to be good! I bet it involves some weirdo connection between islam and democrats that he picked up from the tearful Glenn Beck at his whiteboard.
