America's Nazi Secret: An Insider's History packs in a hard-hitting survey previously published as The Belarus Secret, appearing here with updated material from recently declassified files. Its original publication, despite government censorship, was the Knopf Nominee for the Pulitzer Price in History: thirty years later this reprint offers all the censored items and much more in a powerful survey any history library must have.

Quite amazing to see how well respected names like Thyssen for example
were involved in WW2 and took works of art from the Nazis and are putting
them on display today in Spain as their own art collection. Not to mention
how the Nazis were used by the US after the war to spy on the USSR, or
how the Nazis were financed by countries which later fought them!!

The depth of evil on the part of the robber barons and their enablers as depicted in this book is hilarious in its depravity and chilling in its permeation throughout our history. John Loftus tells it like it is. He would know. Working for the Justice Department, he was a foot soldier out on the front lines. Read this book and weep.

The U.S. State Department sent boat loads of Jewish refugees away during WWII. The "Jewish problem" was not an American problem. After WWII U.S. "Intelligence" agencies recurited Nazi war criminals, provided them citizenship and jobs. Lest we fail to grasp what a Nasi war criminal is; the American citizen, Stankievich, was responsible for the deaths of over 8,000 Jews, in one day. They were forced into trenches filled with their dead and shot, to form mass graves. Infants were buried alive to save bullets, and women were raped before being shot. Now these Nazi's have been provided jobs with Radio Liberty so they can spread their propoganda. John Loftus was hired by the Office of Special Investigations (OSI), ordered by President Carter, to investigate allegations that there are Nazi war criminals in America. President Truman was lied to. What I want to know is why this fact is not being taught in public education. How can American's participate in the governance of a country that claims to provide governance to the people, when these atrociies are hidden, even from the Executive Branch and Congress! Read this book and pass it on.

America's Nazi Secret

By John Loftus

Book review

By Richard E. Noble

This is my second adventure into the world of espionage and Nazi hunting with John Loftus.

Make no mistake, this is a very confusing and deceptive business with agents, double agents, triple agents, counter spies, terrorists and most frightening of all, U.S. government agencies. Mr. Loftus is not appreciated in the world of governments. His books have all been censored for years. He was warned with the threat of imprisonment not to print certain information in his possession thirty years ago and has been restricted accordingly.

In this book Mr. Loftus takes on the Justice Department, the CIA, the OSS, the DoD, the State Department, several presidents and numerous bigwigs in the business of espionage and spying.

He names names and gives addresses. There is no doubt in this reader's mind that this author's life and that of his family has been under constant threat for many years of his adult life. He is playing with some of the worst people on the planet. He is one of a small handful of writers who have taken up the justifiable cause of exposing Nazis in the United States and around the world. This is a mighty scary business but yet he remains very civil and extremely understanding of people and their mistakes.

The philosophies of Nazism and fascism are philosophies of guiltless slaughter.
Unlike socialism and communism which are based on idealistic, utopian principles that have been corrupted by unscrupulous individuals, Nazism has no idyllic base. It is a declared philosophy of unconscionable acquisition, genocide and murder. I know of no other political philosophy as horrendous and deserving of suppression.

I see no political prejudice in this author's work. He is harsh to both sides but mostly to individuals.

Certain names keep reappearing in these books: the Dulles Brothers, Gehlen, John J. McCloy, Wisner, Cheney, Bush, Bohlen, William Casey, the Carlisle Group, Averell Harriman, George Kennan, Joe McCarthy, Henry Kissinger, General Patton, Ronald Reagan, Radio Free Europe, Rockefeller, Harold and Kim Philby, William Donovan, Edward, the Duke of Windsor and others.

"Of the 15,000 Nazi war criminals officially estimated to have lived in America, fewer than one hundred received any form of mild sanction from the Justice
Department, and that at the staggering cost of more than a half-million dollars per case. Congress had delivered the money, but Justice never delivered the goods. Nazi hunting may have been the least effective program in Justice Department History."

This lack of efficiency does not seem to be totally bureaucratic or institutional but contrived and purposeful. Most folks dismiss all this lack of desire to capture and bring ex-nazi war criminals to justice to the Cold War mentality. But the more I read it seems much more complicated. There is more to this negligence than simple anti-communism.

"...the Muslim Brotherhood was the original Arab Nazi movement, working for the British intelligence to crush the infant state of Israel. In the 1980s it was hired by American intelligence to recruit the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan, and it is now the parent organization of every Sunni terrorist group in the Middle East."

The point that there is an Arab/Nazi connection in this Middle East situation does not get very much attention or consideration when discussing Middle East problems. But the Arab nations supported Adolf Hitler and his Nazis and the Axis cause during World War Two.

We hear much more about Lawrence of Arabia and his little band of pro-western supporters than about a whole world of Arab Nazi enthusiasts. Not too much is written or reported on the great bulk of Arab nations and their connection to Nazism.

In our own home politics much is made of the connections of the left to socialism and communism but the obvious links of conservatives to fascism, Nazism and totalitarianism are very rarely discussed.

In this book the author concentrates on the Belarus area of Russia.

Once it was successfully occupied by German forces during WWII large segments of the Byelarussian population turned against their own people and became active, willing and supportive of the Nazi intruders.

They joined enthusiastically in the slaughter of their own. They participated in the Nazi occupation government. Certain among them organized mass executions of area Jews, slaughtering as many as five thousand in one incident. They turned in their neighbors, worked in the prisons and extermination camps and apparently relished their new dominance and power over their fellow citizens. They formed armies and fighting organizations who fought shoulder to shoulder and side by side with the Nazis. They were traitors and collaborators.

After World War II they were reorganized into paramilitary groups by US intelligence agencies to prepare for the predicted and inevitable war with Russia. For the most part this was accomplished by a man named Wisner who was a leader and power broker in the US intelligence organization.

The Byelarussians were incorporated into spying networks and as time went on many, thousands, were smuggled into the United States under one guise or another.

The author presents detailed documentation of how certain of these war criminals were brought to the United States and granted citizenship with complete government knowledge of their heinous war crimes.

He wants the victims of these murders to receive justice and the government agencies and individuals involved in these cover-ups to be investigated and appropriate penalties applied.

He fingers individuals like Emanuel Jasiuk, Jury Sobolewsky, Anton Adamovitch, Mykola Lebed, Radoslaw Ostrowsky, Franz Kushel, and Mikolai Abramtchik.

The author brings to the table a completely different point of view.
Typically we see the threat to America and the American way of life via communism.

This author sees the more realistic and vile threat of Nazism.

Since World War II ended and the Nazis' plan for world domination defeated, America has dismissed the Nazi problem as a threat as if all the Nazis have been dead and buried. This author indicates that Nazism is alive and well and prominent in the Middle East and dominant among certain Arab groups, the Muslim Brotherhood in particular. It is alive also in South America and in the United States and Canada.
The author closes his book with this insight and his personal positive scientific prediction.

"Arab terrorism will continue as long as we continue to import Arab oil. A group of us in a group called Liquid Light, are preparing a bit of a shock for the Arabs. We have found a way to manufacture the Holy Grail of Alternative Energy, the Indium Gallium Nitride Solar cell (InGaN). Not only does this InGaN solar cell use 100% of the sun's bandwidth (as opposed to 20% for existing cells) but it can be manufactured so cheaply that an InGaN solar cell can produce electricity at two cents per kilowatt hour versus 10-15 cents per KWH for a carbon based power plant.
"The long dark night of corporate corruption of the Justice Department may be coming to an end."

Richard Edward Noble is a writer and author of "Mein Kampf - Analysis of Book One."

John Loftus is a great American for exposing America's shameful "Nazi Secret." If this book doesn't open your eyes, nothing will. Every intelligent and objective American should read this book, unless you like going through life with your head in the sand! This book is living proof that Nikita Kruchev was right when he said, "Russia does not have to destroy America with missiles; America will destroy from within." John Loftus was there and saw first hand who was instrumental in perpetuating America's shameful "Nazi Secret." John Loftus exposes them for all to see.

A MUST read to clarify and demystify the events of the previous 30years. America's Nazi Secret unravels the mystique and lays bare the greed and corruption associated with Multi-national Corporations that has contributed to the GLOBAL QUAGMIRE that confronts humanity today.

This book gives an outstanding and honest history of the attitude and actions of the populations and leaders of the Allied countries leading up to and during World War II and beyond, to the creation of Israel. It indicts the crimes not only of US officials, but those of the British, French, Ukranians and White Russians. It also deals with the criminal behavior of the Vatican, corporate America and others. It describes the immigration policies of the Allies, designed to serve the Western powers' interests in the Cold War which is a sad saga of an ineffective element in the Cold War. It is, by the way, a sequel of a book written earlier by Mr. Loftus, entitled "The Unholy Trinity", a record of the pro-Nazi attitude of the Vatican, the Swiss banks and, again, the Allies. In neither book does Mr. Loftus mince any words, even describing the sins of .clergy. His stories about various U. S. and Allied spy- and anti-spy agencies is amazing.

Essential to the comprehension of the conclusion of WW2 and it's aftermath, really leading up to the present era of geopolitics. So far it seems to be getting the "silent treatment" similar to the non-reaction of the academic historical community to the devastating revelations about the counter-espionage program from the Soviet era known as Venona (and validated by the records released by the ex-KGB officer Vasily Mitrokhin).

Loftus was a State Department lawyer investigating Nazis who escaped as Germany collapsed at the end of WW2. Mike Wallace got an Emmy just for a shallow review of his work as of the early 80's, Now freed from government rules regarding intelligence documents that had been kept secret for 30 years, Loftus can tell the rest of the story, of horrific high-level government assistance to Nazi war criminals, much of it covered up by successive presidential administrations. The evidence presented calls into question the legitimacy of much of what is considered to be the foreign policy establishment that fills the top echelons of both Republican and Democrat administrations. Either the judgment of these people has been unbelievably bad (or more likely) they had no problem dealing with war criminals if the results suited their objectives.

Along with the Venona material, this book basically turns the textbook version of post-WW2 history upside down. But, as with the Soviet revelations, it will probably not make a dent in the mind control regime that dominates the American university system (for an incisive explication of this as it relates to the Soviet espionage revelations, you can do no better than "In Denial" by Haynes and Klehr); perhaps in a few years it will be appropriate for someone else to construct a similar assessment of how the "mainstream" academics engaged in ever-more elaborate ballets to avoid facing the evidence presented by Mr. Loftus here.

I read this book in it's original form several years ago. When I saw this updated, un-censored version I had to read it again. Worth every penny. Very few Americans are aware of the fact that we brought hundreds, if not thousands of former Nazi's into this country. And we helped hundreds more evade the Nuremberg trials after WWII. Loftus not only tells how and why it happened, but names the the people and branches of government responsible. He also goes into detail about some of the groups and organizations that we claim to be fighting today. How and when they started and how alot of them are employed by one or more branches of our government. This book offers a great lesson in the darker side of American history.
