Operation Paperclip gets very little reaction or feedback in r/history. Why would that be? This is a historically important decision by the US government. To me it’s a clear indication at the gathering power of the military industrial complex and the need for constant war.
I recently read Operation Paperclip by Annie Jacobsen. I was left aghast at the desire of the US to employ and award citizenship to high ranking Nazis, SS officers and men who not only supported the use of slave labour but men who committed war crimes. The scale of this operation and its impact on the militantly industrial complex can not be underestimated. Surprisingly it does not generate much discussion or analysis in r/history and I am curious to know why.
