ALLEN DULLES: Traitor of Operation Paperclip

allen dullesAllen Dulles, according to this Wikipedia article, was five years younger than his brother John Foster Dulles, Eisenhower’s Secretary of State and chairman and senior partner of Sullivan & Cromwell, and the grandson of John W. Foster, another Secretary of State and brother to diplomat Eleanor Lansing Dulles. His paternal grandfather, John Welch Dulles, had allegedly been a Presbyterian missionary in China. His uncle (by marriage) Robert Lansing also was a U.S. Secretary of State. His nephew, Avery Dulles, was a Roman Catholic cardinal, Jesuit priest and noted theologian who taught at Fordham University. Dulles’ CIA Operation Paperclip imported Nazi scientists into the U.S. and the American establishment by obscuring their histories and short circuiting efforts to bring their true stories to light. The project was led by officers in the United States Army. Although the program officially ended in September 1947, those officers and others carried out a conspiracy until the mid-fifties that bypassed both law and presidential directive to keep Paperclip going. Allegedly, neither Presidents Truman nor Eisenhower were informed that their instructions were ignored.
