Summary:

A German amateur researcher used FOIA to discover that a central post-war neo-Nazi leader was a paid informant of the U.S. government until 1959. Seeking information about post-World War II U.S. efforts to bring German war criminals and other veterans of the Nazi regime into the anti-communist fold, Dieter Maier obtained information via FOIA that has eluded American journalists and a committee created by Congress.
