    Nazis Helped Get Us To The Moon. The Reagan White House Helped Keep Them [W:182]

    Nazis Helped Get Us To The Moon. The Reagan White House Helped Keep Them In The U.S.

    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?

    Right, that was Operation Paperclip, right? We've known about this for, what, forever now?

    So nonchalant about it. :-) In a way, you are correct. But there is a new book out that supposedly delves a little deeper into the investigations. I haven't read the book yet, only the article referenced above. But it's good to know it's not a big deal to some (many?) republicans. Thanks.

    Germany produces the best scientists and engineers.......why would we not have taken advantage of that. It's funny how we welcomed those folks.......yet almost 70 years later we are still trying to hunt down, denaturalize and deport common German soldiers who were like 19 years old at the end of the war.

    It would depend on the level of their guilt, of course. There's no statute of limitations on murder.

    I'm not nonchalant about it, I just don't see how it's especially breaking news. But anyway, for those guilty of atrocities, I don't mind the idea of using their expertise to advance our technology, then taking them out back and shooting them.

    I wouldn't say they were 19 at the time of the war. The doctor at Dachau had to be in his late 20's, perhaps 30's. These were not "common German soldiers," but Nazi commanders in charge of slave labor and weapons manufacturing.

    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.

    They made a movie about the most famous Nazi to be honored here, Werner Von Braun. The title of the movie was 'I Aim for the Stars', to which comedian Mort Sahl added 'but sometimes I hit London'.

    Our welcoming of these Nazis will forever be a dark stain on our national conscience.

    World leading scientists captured in war should be used to the benefit of the state.
