The Gehlen Organization or Gehlen Org is an intelligence agency established in June 1946 by USA. It was established in the United States Zone of Germany, and consisted of former Nazi members of the 12th Department of the German Army General Staff (Foreign Armies East, or FHO).
On Oct 8, 1998, the Nazi War Crimes Disclosure Act became US law. This legislation:
“...calls for the establishment of the Nazi War Criminal Records Interagency Working Group [IWG] to locate, identify, and make available to the public Nazi war criminal records.”
The IWG’s task was to organize previously classified documents from the OSS, predecessor of the CIA, as well as from the CIA and other intelligence sources, and to make these documents available to the public. These were to include documents relating to possible collusion between US government organizations and Nazi war criminals.
Millions of pages have been released but very little information has trickled down to the broad public. And this trickle has been presented in a way calculated to minimize public awareness of the extent to which the Nazi apparatus was recruited in order - literally - to *become* the US covert operations and intelligence apparatus (the CIA etc.)
Copying Hitler's New Order, the Gehlen Organization, established a concentration camp system in San Luis Obispo County, California, USA. It was called the California Specialized Training Institute. The CSTI is now criticized for training police officers to use military-style tactics in domestic law-enforcement situations. It teaches a controversial program known as the Civil Emergency Management Course.
Louis O. Giuffrida wrote a paper advocating martial law and the emergency roundup of 21 million “American Negroes” to “assembly centers or relocation camps” in the event of a militant uprising by African Americans. A year later, Reagan appointed him as the head of CSTI. His paper resembles the martial law plans later drafted by FEMA, while Giuffrida is the agency’s director.
Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) spends the majority of its budget on secret “doomsday” preparations.
