Addendum to FTRs 721, 731

COMMENT: In FTR #721, we exam­ined the devel­op­ment of West­ern intel­li­gence uti­liza­tion of Islamists and the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood in par­tic­u­lar. Much of the pro­gram cen­tered on Ger­hardt von Mende, a Third Reich intel­li­gence oper­a­tive who used his Third Reich Islamists on behalf of the Fed­er­al Repub­lic of Ger­many.

In A Mosque in Munich: Nazis, the CIA and the Rise of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood in the West, Ian John­son relates that von Mende nev­er worked for U.S. intel­li­gence, despite numer­ous over­tures from Amer­i­can espi­onage out­fits.

In Amer­i­ca’s Nazi Secret, John  Lof­tus informs us that von Mende did indeed go to work for U.S. intel­li­gence, report­ing direct­ly to CIA offi­cial Frank Wis­ner. (FTR #731 fea­tures an inter­view with Lof­tus about the book.)

EXCERPT: . . . The third man to sup­ply infor­ma­tion to Wis­ner was Pro­fes­sor Ger­hardt von Mende, a deputy in the Nazi Min­istry for the Occu­pied East­ern Ter­ri­to­ries,  who had favored using Islam­ic col­lab­o­ra­tionist politi­cians to estab­lish a net­work of Nazi pup­pet gov­ern­ments as a wall against the Rus­sians. . . .
