I'm not into conspiracy theories, but came across an interesting topic exposing some of FAS' Nazi origins and ties with the military. Now I haven't been bothered to dig around much myself, but thought I'd share the link and see what people think:

I think it's hilarious.
I'm also disappointed that Truman excluded members of the NAZI party fro the program to recruit German scientists post WWII.
It makes the same sort of sense as banning someone from election to the papacy because they were a member of the Hitler youth.
There's every chance that many of them joined because, if they didn't, they would be seem as disloyal to their country; and that's not something you wanted to do in that regimen.

 ??? I don't follow your train of thought - banning those that were responsible / actively took part in the murdering of millions of men, women and children is a good thing.  Most of these guys were / are criminals.
