While Vatican City and its many extraterritorial buildings in Rome turned
into the protective semi-official refuge for hundreds of war criminals, the
USA's State Department became busy integrating many of them within its
multi-varied branched subterranean machinery, operating outside official
officialdom. The operations, although secretive, eventually became known.
The immediate result was increasing opposition to them all. Because of this,
thousands of fleeing war criminals were diverted hastily to South American
countries, with the connivance of the secret services of the USA. Many were
helped to enter the USA itself and to settle there, under different names
and phony identities.

The State Department and the Secret Services tried to minimize the
disclosures which meanwhile had begun to leak ever more frequently via the
media to a shocked postwar world. To millions of war veterans and war
victims of both continents, the whole policy of protection of war criminals
became offensive. It was repudiated and condemned by all, with few
exceptions. The spearhead of such universal condemnation were the Jews. The
disclosure of the Nazi concentration camps had shocked the world and, of
course, world Judaism. The European Jews, many of whom had emigrated into
the USA, were certainly not going to accept the ambiguous form of American
Catholic appeasement towards their former tormentors. The decades of the
Fascist nightmare were still too vivid to be forgotten, forgiven, or to be
relegated to past history.

The terrorized and wounded Jewish soul thirsted for prompt merciless
revenge. This became encapsulated into the atavistic slogan of "an eye for
an eye." The experience of the concentration camps, and many of their
survivors, maximized the slogan into "one thousand Arian-Christian-Nazi eyes
for one Jewish eye." Their thirst for revenge, far from remaining
encapsulated into a mere verbal blood curdling rhetorical Biblical
quotation, became their solid menacing policy from the very beginning. It
helped to shape the policies of the postwar world, even before the Second
World War had ended. This was done via the activities of the Jewish Lobby in
Washington. A presence which no State Department, Secret Service, political
party, or even American President would ignore at their own peril.

The emergence of Israel as the Messianic fulfillment of the Judaic dream, in
addition to adding tangible religious dimension to World Judaism outside
America, made the American Jews the most pervasive ethnic influence of
America. This was so since American Judaism, like American Catholicism,
having penetrated both political parties, could affect the policies of any
USA administration. The Jewish campaign, conducted with hammering
persistence via a national media, a large proportion of which was controlled
by Jewish interests, affected the policy of the USA. The operations directed
at helping and recruiting war criminals were curtailed. Discretion became
the watchword of both the State Department and the U.S. Secret Service. The
more so, since the Jews set out to hunt war criminals, wherever and whenever
they could, often with striking results, independently of them both.

At the Vatican the campaign had been most unwelcome, the more so since the
Jews had openly condemned the Pope, not only for not having helped them
during the Hitlerite terror, but also for having been pro-Nazi. The Vatican,
however, resented the Jewish campaign because of its long-range political
implications. That is, it was imperiling the secret joint Vatican-USA
preparation for an anti-Russian crusade, to be eventually identified with
the Cold War. Because of this Jewish interference with their plans, the
Vatican and the State Department then formulated a joint, most secretive
promotional campaign of recruitment, whose watchword became "immense
prudence." The new policy permitted their recruitment to operate, as in the
past, with efficiency and with impunity, notwithstanding Jewish vigilance.

The Vatican-USA new campaign soon became identified with the passing of a
massive promulgation of equivocal legislation meant to deal with all kinds
of information connected with recent and current recruitment and protection
of war criminals. Legislative measures, thus once law, closed the door for
good to any curious or mischievous investigator.

The result of such bolting of the door with legal nails was that
identification of war criminals, already in the USA or about to arrive
there, became even more difficult. Even more significant, it became a
protective legal umbrella under which potential and real war criminals could
take cover and avoid detection. The task of having them identified and
arrested became almost an impossible one, protected as they were by obscure
official specifications. Many of these never saw even the light. In fact,
hundreds became so secret that none, with the exception of certain military
or intelligence mandarins, could ever lay their hands on them. Most of such
documents, that is those dealing with war criminals, were declared
"classified," that is, they were made inaccessible to anybody except the USA

As the years and the decades went by, however, such "classification" became
"declassified." "Declassification" revealed what had been suspected all the
time, namely that the USA and the Vatican had helped and indeed had
"shipped" thousands of war criminals to Australia, Latin America and indeed
to the USA and Canada, even before the war had ended.

"Declassification," although helpful, nevertheless continued to be
obstructed by rigid legislation which permitted only a glimpse of light to
be seen as the time limit expired. As it happened during a news conference,
in May 1986, for instance when USA Army Counter-intelligence Corps documents
were "declassified" and interpreted.[1]

The spokesman, who had been tracing U.S. government involvement in helping
Nazi war criminals for seven years, said that investigation of war criminals
conducted by the USA after the War, "had been a joke."

As of May, 1986 there were probably 6,500 of an estimated 10,000 Nazi
collaborators who had been assisted by the pro-war criminals organization,
still living in the U.S.

According to The Times of London. "The U.S. had classified the documents
until now in order to protect allied governments and the Vatican from the
embarrassing revelations in them", it said.

"They showed that the intelligence agencies of France and Britain,
immediately after the war, revived a former Nazi organization, called
Intermarium, he said. The organization was formed originally by a Russian
tsarist general shortly after the Bolshevik Revolution in order to fight

"The intelligence agencies of France, Britain, Australia, Canada, Austria,
West Germany, and Italy, as well as high Vatican officials, had then become
involved in recruiting former Nazi war criminals for the organization. They
rearmed and funded them while helping them to emigrate, Mr. Loftus said.

"The central governments of these countries apparently did not know about
their intelligence agencies' activities.

"The U.S. Army Counter-intelligence Corps found out about the allied
involvement in 1947, and the U.S. decided to get involved itself and to keep
the entire operation secret." [2]

Intermarium was only one of the many organizations meant to help war
criminals. The U.S. Intelligence had at least a dozen, several of which are
still in operational use. Many of them are disguised under equivocal names.
The Vatican, however, was the senior partner since it had the multiplicity
of such agencies. This was so because it had the advantage of the Catholic
Church, which permitted the Vatican to apparel its organizations under the
disguise of religion. The result was that it became practically impossible
to track down their identity or nature of operations, whether they had been
classified, or declassified. The efforts would have stirred up a hornet's
nest in the American Catholic World. A hornet's nest, which even the
American Jews had considered prudent not to disturb. Such religious or
semi-religious organizations are still dispensing what amounts to war
pensions to elderly war criminals, or to their families, under the disguise
of charitable bodies. The official exchange of USA-Vatican ambassadors, in
1984, dealt with the problem to the satisfaction of both parties. This is
one of the many secret items of which the U.S. public knows nothing.
