Great article. So the Sullivan and Cromwell partners and Mr. John Foster Dulles were in the middle of the Brown Brothers Harriman activities involving Prescott Bush and Fritz Thyssen, I'm sure no one is surprised. These relationships survived WWII, and the German international chemical cartel was a tempting "bedfellow" for cynical American corporate executives from the 1920's until the present. For just one example, Eli Lilly held the US rights to German-patented barbiturates, in the late 1950s. Eli Lilly was George Sr.'s company and Bush Jr's OMB chief Mitch Daniels (as well as the Quayle family) benefitted from this immediate post war German-US chemical re-arrangement. Bayer, AGFA, BASF and the other I.G. Farben entities survived the war intact. Unlike their labor force.

The Guardian article was excellent, but I believe there is more to the Prescott Bush connection, involving classified airplane fuel patents, coal gasification and leaded fuels getting into German hands circa 1939...and this leads to DuPont, Standard Oil, Ritter, Dresser and Ashland Oil. The Germans were considered assets after the war and the international chemical cartel described by William Stephenson survived the war, especially in South America...touchy stuff, but the OPERATION PAPERCLIP Nazis went into US corporate R&D under multinational and CIA cover...and this is germane to any discussion of November 1963.

As Butch Cassidy said to Sundance; "Who are those guys?"

There is another connection between Nazi Germany and the assassination of JFK that has so far been missed by researchers.

Two of the most serious German war criminals were Alfried Krupp and Friedrich Flick. Krupp was the owner of Germany's largest armaments company. He joined the SS in 1933. During the war Krupp ensured that a continuous supply of his firm's tanks, munitions and armaments reached the German Army. He was also responsible for moving factories from occupied countries back to Germany where they were rebuilt by the Krupp company.

Krupp also built factories in German occupied countries and used the labour of over 100,000 inmates of concentration camps. This included a fuse factory inside Auschwitz. Inmates were also moved to Silesia to build a howitzer factory. It is estimated that around 70,000 of those working for Krupp died as a result of the methods employed by the guards of the camps.

In 1943 Hitler appointed Krupp as Minister of the War Economy. Later that year the SS gave him permission to employ 45,000 Russian civilians as forced labour in his steel factories as well as 120,000 prisoners of war in his coalmines.

Flick was a director of United Steel Works, the largest steel-producing firm in Germany. In 1933 Flick became a leading financial supporter of the Nazi Party and over the next ten years donated over seven million marks to the party.

During the war Flick became extremely wealthy by using 48,000 slave labourers from Germany's concentration camps in his various industrial enterprises. It is estimated that 80 per cent of these workers died as a result of the way they were treated during the war.

Krupp and Flick were both tried as war criminals at Nuremberg. Krupp was accused of plundering occupied territories and being responsible for the barbaric treatment of prisoners of war and concentration camp inmates. Krupp was found guilty and sentenced to twelve years in prison and had all his wealth and property confiscated. Flick got seven years. They were both expected to be sentenced to death and therefore got off very lightly.

The story was to get even stranger. In 1951 the high commissioner in American occupied Germany, ordered Krupp's release from prison. His property, valued at around 45 million, and his numerous companies were also restored to him. Flick was also released at the same time.

Who was 1951 the high commissioner who made this strange decision? None other than John J. McCloy, one of the members of the Warren Commission. Who else was in Germany at this time working for the CIA? David Morales, Ted Shackley and William Harvey.

Why did McCloy behave in this way. Were Krupp and Flick just being rewarded for being good anti-communists? Or were they suppliers of the money to fund unofficial CIA covert operations against communism in America. Remember, 1951 was the year that McCarthyism was just getting a hold in America.

McCloy’s career after he arrived back in the US was interesting. He became chairman of the Ford Foundation in 1958. He was also an arms advisor to JFK and was largely responsible for the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency. McCloy worked very closely with John McCone, Chairman of the Atomic Energy commission. Both men were ardent Cold War warriors. McCone for example, once accused American scientists of being "taken in" by Soviet propaganda and of attempting to "create fear in the minds of the uninformed that radioactive fallout from H-bomb tests endangers life.

McCone of course became Director of the CIA after the Bay of Pigs disaster. After leaving the agency he established the Committee on the Present Danger. A pressure group that campaigned against cuts in military spending. McCloy and McCone were both key figures of the Military Industrial Complex (McCone, as the owner of the California Shipbuilding Company made an estimated $44 million in wartime profits on an investment of $100,000). Both men also played key roles in covering up the assassination of JFK. Maybe they also paid for it to take place.

John and all,

The owner and founder of the Dallas sportatorium, a hangout for mobsters, cubans and the likes, Tosh can tell you about it, was one Burt Willoughby.

I was wondering if there is any connection with Charles Willoughby?

And if we are talking about the Bush/Dulles/Harriman clan and Nazi Germany I suggest this link too:

http://www.clamormagazine.org/issues/14/feature3.shtml

On March 19, 1934, Prescott Bush handed Averell Harriman a copy of that day's New York Times. The Polish government was applying to take over Consolidated Silesian Steel Corporation and Upper Silesian Coal and Steel Company from "German and American interests" because of rampant "mismanagement, excessive borrowing, fictitious bookkeeping and gambling in securities." The Polish government required the owners of the company, which accounted for over 45% of Poland's steel production, to pay at least its full share of back taxes. Bush and Harriman would eventually hire attorney John Foster Dulles to help cover up any improprieties that might arise under investigative scrutiny."

I thougt the question was interesting, so I repeat it :

I have no idea? Was he in Germany in 1951? Larry Hancock, who is probably the best informed on these matters, says he has been unable to find a link between McCoy and the 3 CIA operatives, Morales, Harvey and Shockley when they were all in Germany in 1951. I will ask Larry about Willoughby.
