“The U.S. Did Not Defeat Fascism in WWII, It Discretely Internationalized It” — Article in CounterPunch

My latest article was just published here in CounterPunch. It is part three of a four-part series entitled “Fascism: A Counter-History.” The first part is available here, and the second here. Excerpt: “To establish itself as the global military hegemon and international guard dog of capitalism, the U.S. government and National Security State have relied on the help of the significant number of Nazis and fascists it integrated into its global network of repression, including the 1,600 Nazis brought into the U.S. through Operation Paperclip, the 4,000 or so integrated into the Gehlen organization, the tens or even hundreds of thousands that were reintegrated into the ‘postwar’—or rather transwar—regimes in fascist countries, the large number who were given free passage to Empire’s backyard—Latin America—and elsewhere, as well as the thousands or tens of thousands integrated into NATO’s secret stay-behind armies. This global network of seasoned anti-communist assassins has also been used to train armies of terrorists around the world to participate in dirty wars, coups d’état, destabilization efforts, sabotage, and terror campaigns.” [read more]

    Thank you so much for addressing these truths in such a compelling fashion. I (in my nearly 70 years) had somewhat independently come to the same conclusions as to the enormity of this juggernaut and its masterful trans-generational application of such sublime technique to hold the collective consciousness of so many millions in its thrall. For all of these decades. I cannot thank you enough for this (first seen on Counterpunch,) and now your interview with Hedges on RT.
    I see by having searched for your further work and finding this page there is plenty more to learn from you. I do look forward to beginning this further journey. And of course, sharing with and to others whose minds are finally cracking open as if seeds from a long-dormant pod.
