They were criminals, some of them even torturers and mass murderers: High-ranking National Socialists and fascists were allegedly since 1945 on the run from the justice of the Allies. But the victors were less concerned with morality and justice. The CIA recruited numerous former Nazi leaders and Italian fascists as agents for their worldwide operations against communism. They infiltrated the highest government offices in Germany, organized torture, death squads and intelligence services in pro-American military dictatorships in South America and were involved in coup attempts in Italy. Written by SS

Very good documentary.
1 March 2018 | by apjcSee all my reviews

Basically reviews how dirty the dirty business of spying / intelligence is. At the end of WWII the U.S. began grabbing every Nazi who might be of use. The V rocket scientists were an early target, even though they had complicity in the deaths of slave labourers, so as to further U.S. development of larger rockets. This documentary concerns itself with even worse examples of those recruited, it's a rogues gallery of death squad leaders and ardent Nazi and Fascist members Includes the less than honourable actions taken to combat any Communist movement in S. America. Then throw in the fact that all of the Bundesbank financial reserves were considered Nazi loot, so the U.S. basically looted it. Today you can with proper documentation and evidence claim back works of art that were looted from your family, not money and gold. Reason Europe was destitute after WWII was the real victors U.S and U.S.S.R did what most victors do, plundered all the vanquished.
