In August of 1945 president Truman approved Project Paperclip to bring Hitlers Top Scientists into the United States with the argument: If the US did not get those people and bring them to our country the Soviet Union will get them. It was a postwar and Cold War operation carried out by the Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency (JJOA). Paperclip had the aim to exploit German scientists for American research and secure those intellectual ressources for the US. At least 1,600 mind and propulsion scientists were recruited and brought to the United States – including Wernher von Braun. They have been placed by the CIA into the Militray-Industrial complex including Colleges and Universities. The propulsion scientists lead the US Space Program while the Mind scientists continued to experiment with mind control techniques. One CIA program was called MK-ULTRA.
