The CIA’s sudden rise to power gave birth to the Military Industrial Complex
In 1933, Marine Corps Maj. Gen. Smedley Butler was approached by a wealthy and secretive group of industrialists and bankers to overthrow President FDR and establish a fascist dictatorship in the United States.
The plan to install a fascist state by force was exposed when Butler blew the whistle and identified the ringleaders in a testimony given to the U.S. House Committee on Un-American Activities.
Senator Prescott Bush went on to help finance Hitler’s rise to power and continued business dealings with the Nazi’s even after America entered the second World war.
At the end of WWII Operation Paperclip was launched by the OSS to smuggle Nazi war criminals into the United States.
The OSS provided the perfect model for the CIA which was established in 1947. The CIA’s sudden rise to power gave birth to the Military Industrial Complex. By the end of Eisenhower’s presidency in 1961 it had become evident that the Federal Govt. could no longer control the agency. The CIA had gone rogue.
