Concevabley the argument could be made that had we not done that, had we not smuggeled out scientists, their programs might have continued under Stalin, or the British, or the Chinese, or the Argetinians, etc etc.
For all we know, in this existance, its entirely possible we made the right choice by smuggeling out the scientists. We were able to make scientific advancements that no one can deny have not improved the human race.
We can't change the past, and the future is unwritten, which leaves us with the now to make changes and we should make the most of what we can affect now, instead of arguing over something we can't affect.

Tesla had the "Vril" concept long before the Nazi's.
Better we take the patents and jail the offenders. Instead, we gave them jobs in our government. And we wonder where we went wrong when we look around today.
