    It may have been scientifically beneficial to the US, but the moral dilemma remains. We did the same with the Japanese doctors who were responsible for torturing thousands of innocent civilians during experiments on par with Joseph Mengele. It may have been economically/scientifically beneficial to the country, but it is morally wrong.
    Most of the 'Nazis' that the OSI has tried to denaturalize were alleged to be concentration camp guards who were in their early 20's at the end of the war.............most die before the deportation proceedings are completed.........I wonder how much longer we will continue to fund this OSI to track down people in their 90s.

    Well Reagan was here to streamline government, especially that part that examines government operations. His criminal tendencies were seen very clearly in the Iran-Contra affairs.

    Why not coverup hiring war criminals?

    There was never a cover-up. Their pasts were known from the beginning. The question was whether to waive the standards applied to others because of their overriding value.

    Our country was built, in large part, on the premise that the ends justify the means.

    Quite a generalization.

    Well, I did say "in large part", not "entirely".

    Former Nazi officials, including one notorious Dachau camp doctor who was involved in human experimentation, played leading roles in NASA. Thanks to the precursor to the CIA (OSO) and the Reagan White House, particularly Pat Buchanan.

    Thoughts?

    After WWII all sides absconded with a number of German Scientists and engineers.

    The United States wound up with Wernher von Braun, who helped develop the Saturn 5 Rocket .

    But Von Braun wasn't reponsible for the Moon landings.

    His idea was to land a Saturn 5 Rocket on the moon. An American came up with the concept of the Lunar lander.

    The innovations that allowed us to land men on the moon and return them safely to Earth came from a long list of American Engineers and Scientists.

    It would be like throwing war treasure in the ocean.
    Because sometimes its good to be able to look yourself in the mirror. I don't want a guy in my country who conducted medical experiments on other human beings. I don't want a rocket scientist who used slave laborers under appalling conditions to make his rockets, which were then dropped on London and Rotterdam. But that's just me.
