Ironically, just two weeks after Germany's unconditional surrender, the designer of the Nazi guided missile, Herbert Wagner, arrived in Washington D.C. This was the beginning of the mass influx of "mad scientists" who would go to work in the United States for a mission called "Project Paperclip," headed up by President Roosevelt to supposedly "exploit the knowledge of Nazi scientists."
A few years later, the Nuremberg War Criminal Tribunal convicted 24 of the I.G. Farben executives for mass murder, slavery and other crimes against humanity; however, in less than 7 years, every single murderer was released, and began consulting American corporations. From 1950 to 1980, Bayer, BASF, and Hoechst filled their highest position, Chairman of the Board, with convicted mass murderers.
Currently, each of the three IG Farben "daughter" companies is far more powerful than Farben ever was during World War II. Today, these companies send lobbyists to Washington D.C. with millions (if not billions) of dollars to influence regulatory decisions made by the FDA.
Fritz ter Meer, convicted of mass murder, served just 5 prison years, then "conveniently" became the chairman of Bayer's supervisory board.
