I.E. Who got the nanotech and used it on Bucky? How did they do it?
All indications are that Winter Soldier is going to be a product of HYDRA, and that Zola is the one who recovered his body and brainwashed him and engineered and trained him. The cybernetic arm for WS was probably developed by Zola (or his successors) long before Killian develops the Extremis tech in the 21st century.
