Almost immediately after the second world war, the American military initiated a program to collect the Nazis’ most promising scientists and bring them to the US in a form of intellectual and technological reparations. Anxious to best the USSR, which was also recruiting among Nazi scientists, the Americans often turned a blind eye to some of the darker atrocities some of these researchers had been implicated in. The Americans and the British adopted rocket scientists, chemists, and, perhaps most controversially bio-medical researchers. The severe ethical compromises required to claim these so-called reparations from the Germans bred a host of conspiracy theories. Perhaps the most bizarre theory, which gained traction among therapists who believed in a pandemic of Satanic Ritual Abuse, was the legend of Dr. Green. According to believers, Green worked for the CIA in developing the prototype for their mind control program.
