C.I.A. and Former Nazis
Published: November 18, 2010

To the Editor:

“Secret Papers Detail U.S. Aid for Ex-Nazis” (front page, Nov. 14) cites the Central Intelligence Agency’s interaction with former Nazi officials in the early years of the post-World War II era.

We would like to make clear that the agency at no time had a policy or a program to protect Nazi war criminals, or to help them escape justice for their actions during the war. It is unfortunate that the article suggests otherwise.

The C.I.A. has cooperated for decades with the Justice Department’s Office of Special Investigations.
