At a secret black site in the years after the end of WWII, CIA and US
intelligence operatives tested LSD and other interrogation techniques on
captured Soviet spies—all with the help of former Nazi doctors. An
excerpt from Annie Jacobsen’s Operation Paperclip, published this week.
It was 1946 and World War II had ended less than one year before. In Top
Secret memos being circulated in the elite ‘E’ ring of the Pentagon, the
Joint Chiefs of Staff were preparing for ‘total war’ with the Soviets—to
include atomic, chemical, and biological warfare. They even set an
estimated start date of 1952. The Joint Chiefs believed that the U.S.
could win this future war, but not for reasons that the general public
knew about. Since war’s end, across the ruins of the Third Reich, U.S.
military officers had been capturing and then hiring Hitler’s weapons
makers, in a Top Secret program that would become known as Operation
Paperclip. Soon, more than 1,600 of these men and their families would
be living the American dream, right here in the United States. From
these Nazi scientists, U.S. military and intelligence organizations
culled knowledge of Hitler’s most menacing weapons including sarin gas
and weaponized bubonic plague.
