The long-hidden report "CIA created ‘safe haven’ for Nazis in US" obtained by the New York Times November 13, 2010, may be the most concrete account yet of the role that prominent members of Germany’s Nazi party played in the early, formative years of the CIA, following World War II.


It alleges the CIA created a “safe haven” for Nazis believed to be of use to the US’ Cold War efforts. [1]



Notice the words alleges and believed, to be of use to the US’ Cold War efforts. What if there was another reason the CIA created a “safe haven” for Nazis?

In Search of J. D. Salinger, by Ian Hamilton, recounts Salinger’s experience during and after World War II, serving with the Counter Intelligence Corps (CIC).

Salinger’s reclusive behavior may have been the result of knowledge he gained while in the employ of the United States Defense Intelligence Department during and after World War II.


He took part in the creation of the mind control program, MK-Ultra and Project Artichoke and in the interrogation of captured Nazis (denazification of Germany) [2]

Project Artichoke was developed under the influence of the former Nazis who worked with CIC and The House of Rothschild to make sure the end of the Diaspora and the Jews arrival in Palestine happened in exactly 1260 years from the “abomination of desolation.”

The Cassandra Prophecy by Ian Gurney

Salinger, it is reasonable to assume, had access to the secret memorandum written on June 21, 1933, from the German Zionist Federation to the Nazis,

“All German Jewish organizations, it was declared, should be dominated by the Zionist spirit”.

In 1941, the “Stern Gang,” among them Yitzhak Shamir, later Prime Minister of Israel, presented the Nazis with the Fundamental Features of the Proposal of the National Military Organization (NMO) in Palestine:

The NMO, which is well-acquainted with the goodwill of the German Reich government and its authorities towards Zionism activity… is of the opinion that: the NMO in Palestine… offers to actively take part in the war on Germany’s side.

The Iron Wall, London 1984, pp.195-197

The Wall Street Journal December 2, 1976

Concentration camps weren’t the only camps set up by Hitler and the Gestapo.


During the 1930s, in cooperation with the German authorities, Zionist groups organized a network of some 40 camps where prospective settlers were trained for their new lives in Palestine.


The Transfer Agreement between Hitler’s Germany and international Zionism, implemented in 1933 and abandoned at the beginning of WWII, allowed German Jews to immigrate to Palestine. [3]

Therefore, we can logically deduce that Salinger may have uncovered the Story behind the Story of Adolph Hitler and the Modern State of Israel, aka The Key to the Secret of the Universe.



‘For Esmé - With Love and Squalor’

In his celebrated story For Esmé - With Love and Squalor, Salinger, trying to get a grip on life, most probably is talking about himself when he starts a correspondence with a thirteen year-old British girl.


A Perfect Day for Bananafish is another story about his struggle with suicide because he was tormented by:

The knowledge he learned as a counterintelligence officer that millions of deaths and an untold amount of suffering caused by two World Wars and the Holocaust had only one purpose: to create the Modern State of Israel and end the Diaspora, in 1948. The Key...

Therefore, it is reasonable to conclude that Salinger connected WW I, WW II, Adolph Hitler and the 'Holocaust' to The Modern State of Israel.

Salinger was living with both the memory of the horrors of war and with the knowledge that millions of deaths and untold suffering caused by World War II had nothing to do with an incompetent fanatical dictator, Adolph Hitler, financed by George H.W. Bush’s father, Prescott, trying to take over the world. [4]

In one of the rare moments when he did speak to the media, he said,

“I love to write. But I write just for myself and my own pleasure.”

He displayed the mental anguish of a misanthrope involved in one of the bloodiest episodes of the war in Hürtgenwald, a useless battle, where he witnessed the horrors of war, and has to confront the reality that 70 million people died in order to create the Modern State of Israel.

Salinger himself was hospitalized for stress, according to his biographer, Ian Hamilton, and later retreated into his private world and Zen Buddhism. Alleging a conspiracy about the story behind the story of two World Wars and the Holocaust in 1950 would be hazardous to your mental and physical health.

It was a choice between getting killed or ridiculed; he kept silent and waited for death.




[1] A report the Justice Department has been trying to hide for the past four years offers the most detailed account yet of the CIA’s efforts to protect known Nazi war criminals in the United States. Eric Lichtblau,

[2] The project’s intentionally oblique CIA cryptonym is made up of the digraph MK, meaning that the project was sponsored by the agency’s Technical Services Division, followed by the word ULTRA (which had previously been used to designate the most secret classification of World War II intelligence). Other related cryptonyms include MK-NAOMI and MK-DELTA.

A precursor of the MK-ULTRA program began in 1945 when the Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency was established and given direct responsibility for Operation Paperclip.


Operation Paperclip was a program to recruit former Nazi scientists. Some of these scientists studied torture and brainwashing, and several had just been identified and prosecuted as war criminals during the Nuremberg Trials.,

Several secret U.S. government projects grew out of Operation Paperclip. These projects included Project CHATTER (established 1947), and Project BLUEBIRD (established 1950), which was later renamed to Project ARTICHOKE in 1951. Their purpose was to study mind-control, interrogation, behavior modification and related topics.

[3] When Lenni Brenner’s, 51 Documents: Zionism Collaboration with the Nazis was published the Pro-Zionist British Jewish central organization wanted Amazon to issue a warning to their customers,

“We have urged Amazon to acknowledge on the site that this book is of a dangerous and controversial nature.”

Brenner’s introduction:

The Nazi era is the most discussed period in history, yet most Jews and others are unaware of the interaction between Zionism, Hitler and Mussolini.

What happened to the Jews is constantly utilized in Zionist propaganda as justification for the creation of the Israeli state, the silver lining around the dark cloud of desolation.
