Rudolf Hess, Adolf Hitler's Deputy Fuehrer, and Nazi Party Reichsleiter, was indeed murdered by British agents according to a document recently obtained under Great Britain's equivalent of the Freedom of Information Act. But....read the article closely and carefully!:
There is something highly suggestive in this article, which, when closely read, does not actually state that British agents murdered Hess, but rather, that various investigative organs of the British government investigated the claims of a surgeon who claimed that he had been murdered. But, that's not the highly suggestive thing to note in this article:
"Released under the Freedom of Information Act, the partially-redacted report by Detective Chief Superintendent Howard Jones revealed that the surgeon - Hugh Thomas - had supplied him with the names of two suspects provided by a “government employee” responsible for training secret agents.
"Withheld for nearly 25 years, the report has been released by the Yard’s counter-terrorism command following consultation with 'other Government and foreign government departments'." (Emphasis added)
Say that again please?
What possible connection could an investigation into the death of Rudolf Hess have to do with contemporary counter-terrorism issues?
Well, for those who've been following my research, or that of a few others, there is a connection between radical Islamicism, radicial Muslim terrorism, and the Nazis. We need not recount here the connections to Nazis that spiral out from the overthrow of King Farouk by CIA-sponsored SS Lt. Colonel Otto Skorzeny, General Wilhelm Farmbacher, and so on. Nor need we recount the connections of the SS to the Muslim Brotherhood itself, to the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem during the war, nor to his cousin, Yasser Arafat. We need not recount the fact that it was German translations of the infamous Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion that were translated - by Nazis - into Arabic.
We needn't recall all that, because the article is suggesting - tiptoeing around the implication, in fact - that there is some contemporary significance to all these connections, and they, in turn, to the death of Rudolf Hess, who took whatever secrets he had with him to his grave...
The mystery surrounding the man is labyrinthine. Was the prisoner in Spandau even the real Hess? Some do not think so, and there's a bit of evidence to make their case at least worthy of mention and consideration. The man in Spandau prison apparently lacked war wounds Hess suffered during World War One, and which became a part of his personal file in the Imperial German Reichsheer. So the man in Spandau who was murdered was a double? If he was a double, say those who advocate that he was the real Hess, then he was so good of a double he fooled Hess's son Wolf and Frau Hess herself.
Which brings us to the central core of the mystery: why keep Hess locked up for so long? And then, when it looked as if Gorbachev was no longer going to allow the Soviet Union to play "bad cop" by constantly vetoing calls for his release, why, after that change of heart, was he murdered? (And this author believes he was murdered.) One scenario has it that Hess flew his now infamous "peace mission" to Great Britain in May of 1941 - scarcely a month before the massive Nazi invasion of Russia in Operation Barbarossa - to offer peace to the British and a role in a Europe-wide crusade against international Bolshevism. This version of events has it that Hess was given this mission by Adolf Hitler himself, with the caveat that "in the event that you are caught or killed, the Fuehrer will disavow any knowledge of your actions." Mission Impossible. The bona fides to establish Hess's sincerity? Again, according to this version of events, Hess brought with him the entire Order of Battle for the upcoming invasion of the Soviet Union.
It sounds nice, except it makes no sense. Why keep Hess locked up to preserve a secret (the Order of Battle), which is now fully known, to an invasion that failed? And why keep him locked up to preserve the political secret which, in any event, the British rejected? The Barbarossa scenario makes no sense.
Then there's the Antarctic scenario, one to which I am more strongly inclined. Hess was, along with Reichsmarschall Herman Goering, the sponsor of the 1938-1939 German Antarctic expedition, the one that allegedly found warm water springs, and vast under-the-ice caves for u-boat bases and so on. It is a curious fact that little more than this is known of the German Antarctic expedition to this day, and in that absence, all sorts of scenarios have abounded, including fanciful tails of secret Nazi Antarctic research bases building flying saucers and chasing Admiral Richard Byrd's Operation High Jump out of the polar continent with his tail between his legs... with Nazi Flying Saucers of course. I've always reject the flying saucer aspect of this "last battalion" legend, and rejected the idea that the Nazis had some sort of postwar research and production facility there. In the absence of any firm evidence to indicate that they did, all the other evidence points to South America as the home and haven to their postwar research projects, not Antarctica.
Regardless of how one shaves this ice-cube, however, the fact remains that Hess would have known something about the expedition. But what could it be that would cause him to be kept under such close guard for the rest of his life, and then murdered when it looked like the Soviets were going to drop their veto against his release under Premier Gorbachev?
Now, in this article, the dim outlines of another scenario begin to offer themselves, namely, that Hess knew something about postwar plans and Nazi intentions with terrorism and the Islamic world...
See you on the flip side.
