Ford Motor Company -- whose founder, Henry Ford, was a noted anti-Semite and Hitler admirer -- has long insisted that it did not manufacture war goods for Nazi Germany after the US entered the war. Not true, reports frequent MoJo contributor Ken Silverstein in THE NATION.
New documents reveal that, as late as the attack on Pearl Harbor, Ford's US headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan was making substantial profits from the European manufacture of Third Riech war toys. Ford insists that, after the US joined the war in early 1941, the Nazis seized its German factory and cut Dearborn out of the loop.
