#2 The use of Nazis and collaborators in intelligence programs has left a mark on life in the United States itself. The existence of these programs has been a carefully kept secret in the West.
#3 The American government initially planned to enlist the brains of Nazi Germany, but they soon stopped beating a dead Nazi horse. They began importing German chemical warfare experts, submarine specialists, and the scientists who had once built Germany’s rockets using slave labor from Nazi concentration camps.
