American intelligence officials created a “safe haven” in the US for Nazis after World War II for intelligence gathering purposes, according to a New York Times report published Sunday which cited a 600-page report revealing a secret history of the US government's Nazi-hunting operation.

The report document, which the US Justice Department has tried to keep secret for four years details decades of clashes with other nations over crimes in the US and abroad.

The report’s most damning disclosures come in assessing the CIA's involvement with Nazi émigrés, according to the newspaper. "Scholars and previous government reports had acknowledged the CIA’s use of Nazis for postwar intelligence purposes. But this report goes further in documenting the level of American complicity and deception in such operations," The New York Times claimed.
