Earlier this year, Stone told assembled reporters during Winter TV Press Tour that his 10-hour documentary Showtime documentary entitled “The Secret History of America” will show that Adolf Hitler was “an easy scapegoat” and will help put the mass murderer in context.
“We can’t judge people as only ‘bad’ or ‘good.’ [Hitler] is the product of a series of actions,” Stone says. “It’s cause and effect. People in America don’t know the connection between WWI and WWII.”

He is a product of his era.” And he points out that Hitler’s rise was supported by “German industrialists, the Americans and the British. He had a lot of support.” His documentary will reveal Nazi financial ties to U.S. companies such as Ford and General Motors. which were investigated for profiting from World War II. Hitler even presented his pal Henry Ford with the Grand Service Cross of the Supreme Order of the German Eagle in 1938.
