“We were still negotiating certain things with the Germans,” says Dorsey, of Temecula. “The government didn’t want to upset people by saying U.S. servicemen were held in concentration camps.”
it was part PC and part getting as many German scientists on our side before they could go over to the Russian side....the way the gov’t sold out these soldiers and, especially, POW’s from the Pacific theater in WWII was disgraceful...read the way the POW’s held by japan were treated by the American gov’t, especially the survivors of the Bataan Death march- your stomach will turn...

That's not very good negotiation... IMHO, most Germans were falling all over themselves to come to Americans. Generals disobeyed crazy's orders and allowed escape to the west of whole divisions.
Everybody knew that Russia was not the place to be and America was.
I could understand working on getting Americans to accept Germans, as that was probably a stumbling block for years.
But it just doesn't sound right, there were plenty of bad things that happened that were publicly known. No good reason to hide this, IMHO.
