Report on Klaus Barbie Called Incomplete

(Continued from Page 1)
tional Refugees Organiza-
tion (IRO) immediately
after World War II, and
from other similar organ-
izations who fled Westward.
Ryan, in his report,
asks if the American in-
telligence officers who
hired Barbie in 1947
really knew who he was.
His name was "not gen-
erally known" at that
time and did not become
"known" until later, the
report insists. Therefore,
by inference, these offi-
cers can be excused on
the grounds of ignorance.
The report itself shows
that lists compiled as early
as the summer of 1945
counted Barbie among the
wanted war criminals.
There was the Central Re-
gistry of War Criminals and
Security Suspects, an

American listing of wanted
Nazis, the United Nations
War Crimes Commission,
and other lists. More impor-
tantly, the individual list-
ings of the Grand Alliance
(Holland, Belgium and the
Soviet Union) also iden-
tified Barbie as a war crim-
inal.
An analysis of the report's
text shows that some 46
percent of its data base was
given to the Justice De-
partment by the French.
The single-most inclusive
documentation on Barbie in
Lyon where he was Gestapo
chief, originated with the
French resistance. Yet, the
Ryan report does not con-
tain a single reference to
this source which is enor-
mously rich and precise in
its detail.
Moreover, to compound
this basic omission, the re-
port totally fails to put the
role of Barbie, the Gestapo
and Lyon within the Ger-
man occupation of France
and the treasonous Vichy
government with which the
U.S. maintained diplomatic
contact . and gave it sym-
pathetic support during the
larger part of Barbie's mur-
derous activities in Lyon.
Another, explosively
vital documentation in
the Ryan report is the re-
lationship between the
CIC and one Padre (actu-
ally Monsignor) Krunos-
lav Dragonovich who is
described in the report as
the "operator" of a "sort
of underground railroad,
dubbed (by the CIC) a 'rat
line' that ran from Au-
stria to Italy where it re-
lied on a Croation priest
(Dragonovich) at-
tached to a seminary in
Rome where Croation
youths studied for the
priesthood."
Additionally, the report
notes that "Dragonovich
used this base to plan an es-
cape service for Croatian
nationalists fleeing from
the Yugoslav authorities."
Moreover, the CIC, the
report says, "was under no

illusions" about the priest:
`Dragonovich is known and
recorded as a fascist, war
criminal, etc.' (the CIC
stated in a top secret mes-
sage) and his contacts with
South American diplomats
of a similar (fascist) class
are not approved by U.S.
State Department officials

Yet, the Ryan report con-
tinues, the "CIC saw advan-
tage, however, in cloaking
its 'visitors' with Displaced
Persons status and in deal-
ing with someone who had
ties to the Catholic
Church."
(The author of this arti-
cle, Charles Allen, gave
Ryan's office a copy of a
secret 1947 State Depart-
ment document, the La
Vista report, documenting
the Vatican complicity in
aiding Nazi war criminals
to escape from Europe. The
copy was given after several
U.S. departments could find
no copy of their own. But
Ryan's report did not follow
through on the issue, ac-
cording to Allen.)
Finally, another as-
serted premise of the
Ryan report is the inno-
cence of the CIA. Ryan
takes particular pains to
exonerate that agency of
any role in the utilization
of Barbie. "It is my con-
clusion," Ryan wrote,
"that at no time from the
end of World War II to the
present time has the Cen-
tral Ihtelligence Agency
had any relationship
with Klaus Barbie." (The
CIA was not operational
until 1948.)
Yet, such an assertion
fails to examine adequately
the substantial evidence
unearthed by Beate and
Serge Klarsfeld in Paris
that both French and West
German intelligence
sources are on record about
such involvement; that the
Interibr Minister of Bolivia
told ABC-TV correspondent
John Martin that there was
CIA contact with Barbie
during 1974-1975; that sub-
stantial sources which I
have reported alleged that
Barbie was involved with
the 1967 search for and kil-
ling of Che Guevara in
Bolivia, an operation that
had been widely associated
with CIA involvement.
Instead, Ryan asserts in
his report that the CIA
allowed him to examine its

Holtzman Seeks
New Probe on
Nazis in U.S.

NEW YORK (J'TA) —
Brooklyn District Attorney
Elizabeth Holtzman has
called on the United States
"to appoint a special inde-
pendent commission to in-
vestigate U.S. government
ties to alleged Nazi war
criminals."
Holtzman said that such a
commission has become im-
perative in light of the re-
port by Allan Ryan, Jr. on
the ties between U.S. in-
telligence agencies and
Klaus Barbie ; the wartime
Gestapo leader in Lyon,
France.

files on Barbie. No doubt
that Ryan and his associ-
ates did examine carefully
what the CIA gave them.
The question is, did the CIA
provide all the data that it
had on Barbie or just
selected files? This aspect of
the report is as disquieting
as the other factual and his-
torical omissions and eva-
sions.
A connection between the
CIA and Barbie is clearly
established in CIC "top
secret" reports in the docu-
ments provided by Ryan in
his report. One George
Neagoy, a CIC agent, had
"sole responsibility" and
"overall supervision and
conduct" over the "rat line"
