"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

[Media Source*] It looks like the public will soon have access to papers documenting former Nazi war criminals working for the CIA. Congress is giving more time for the government to release these papers in order for a full disclosure to be made. Unfortunately if it were not for Rep. Carolyn Maloney, we might have never had known any information regarding the U.S.'s ties with former Nazi's, as she was forced to sponsor a bill to open up the vaults of the CIA.
Her bill led to a 1998 public disclosure law that required the release of all U.S. government papers related to the Holocaust and Nazi war crimes. So far, more than 8 million pages of documents have been brought to light, including 1.25 million from the CIA.
For example, the documents revealed that German Gen. Reinhard Gehlen, who served as one of Adolf Hitler's most senior military intelligence officers during World War II, later became a key U.S. intelligence resource after the war, Maloney said.
Questions still remain as to what happened to the Nazi war criminals afterward (did they retire, are they dead?) and although these documents will be out in March of 2007 (at the latest) it is good our government is shedding some light on this issue as it will help heal the wounds of millions who suffered from one mans delusion.
