CIA Denies Helping Nazi Adolf Eichmann

A new book charges the CIA knew Eichmann's alias and address.


By Paul Bedard, Washington Whispers

A gripping new book about the hunt and seizure of Nazi Adolf Eichmann, implementer of the "final solution," includes this stunning charge: The CIA knew his alias and his Argentina address but didn't tell Israel. Hunting Eichmann by Neal Bascomb says the CIA balked to protect Nazis working for it. Not exactly, Langley tells Whispers: "CIA did not, contrary to legend, know Eichmann's precise alias or whereabouts. We even got a tip in the 1950s that he could be at large in Jerusalem!"
