More than likely if we did not take these scientists they would of been taken by Russia. That is why the U.S. took so many scientist, it was a form of containment. To allow these scientist to be used by Russia would only help them spread communism. Thus to keep with the U.S. policy of containment, developed by Dean Acheson and George F. Keenan, they had to attain these scientists to stop the Russian communists.

Could you explain what exactly is new about this? It's been long known that the US granted Nazi's of significant (strategic) importance like scientists a ''green card'' to the US...

Lol, that's why America is Israel's little b**** huh?
Of course the USA took in Nazi's. They were some of the brightest. If not for Nazi scientists, America wouldn't have set foot on the moon when they did. It was all part of making sure the USSR didn't get a hold of these men and the technology they knew how to create.
The Gestapo was only the secret police of Germany. They worked on gathering information and controling those in Germany and occupied areas. The Gestapo dealt more in the realm of dealing with political enemies. I would imagine that the farther away from Germanic lands the Gestapo goes their power and force dwindled. The SS had a seperate intelligence gathering unit for gathering information on their military enemies. It was from this SS intelligence operation that many Nazis were taken and put into the CIA or CIA funded organizations.
