Nazis given "safe haven" in U.S. after WWII

Nazis and their collaborators were given a "safe haven" in the U.S., a secret U.S. Justice Department report said, according to The New York Times.

The 600 page report, obtained by the New York Times, was commissioned in 1999, and edited in 2006. The Justice Department tried to keep the documents secret, according to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

The report focuses on the Justice Department's Office of Special Investigations, foremd in 1979 to deport Nazis. The report says that known Nazis were allowed into the U.S. for postwar intelligence purposes.

"America, which prided itself on being a safe haven for the persecuted, became -- in some small measure -- a safe haven for persecutors as well," the report said, according to The New York TImes.
