MEMO TO KISSINGER: HITLER LIVED TO 68 AND IS BURIED IN SPAIN
Now this is a special blog that I hadn't intended to schedule, but F.L.M. spotted this very important article and passed it along (with our deep thanks).
The article speaks for itself: according to a memorandum of November 27, 1971 to then National Security Advisor to President Richard M. Nixon, Adolf Hitler had been buried in a Spanish cemetery at the ripe old age of 68:
The article thankfully reproduces a copy of the short memorandum:
As the memorandum itself states, "After the Second World War the government of Francisco Franco concealed him in Madrid and there he died to (sic.) the age of 68 years. His body lies in a tomb without name of the mentioned Spanish cemetery. It is suitable that this information never publicizes. /s/ Theodore L. Eliot, Jr." The memorandum also lists four copies were distributed, though the abbreviations are a bit too blurred for this author's tired eyes to make out. The memorandum itself is classified Secret, and obviously, has a peculiar diction and even error, which suggests that the memorandum may have been based on an underlying Spanish document.
Why is that important? If it is the case that there was an underlying Spanish document, then in all likelihood it was in formal written response to a formal written inquiry by the State Department, at the behest of Mr. Kissinger himself. So what prompted Mr. Kissinger to issue a request through the State Department about the whereabout and post-war survival of Adolf Hitler?
We'll get back to that, because it constitutes the core of today's dose of high octane speculation.
But by way of commenting on the background to that speculation, there is much here that gives the story some credibility. Recall, for example, the Madrid Circular, the post-war document that circulated among the postwar German "diaspora" via the German Geopolitical Society based in Madrid. Recall also that Otto Skorzeny - Hitler's "favorite commando" who performed a number of daring missions at the explicit orders of Hitler himself, not the least of which was the dramatic airborne rescue of the imprisoned Benito Mussolini, held in a mountain top hotel under tight guard. Skorzeny, as I have mentioned in some of my books, headquarted himself in Madrid, where he maintained an office in the same building as the CIA Madrid office, and where he also conducted a number of covert operations and where he also played host to an international "terrorists's conference" in the 1960s, playing host to such individuals as Yasser Arafat.
Of course, while there are endless Hitler survival scenarios, with him being reportedly being seen or surviving in Argentina, Indonesia, Chile, and so on, the survival of Hitler in Franco's capital, with his most trusted personal "SS commando" in Otto Skorzeny close to hand, makes sense. Perhaps he moved around a lot, or was moved a lot, which, again, would make some sense for an individual so infamous from simply a security standpoint. One has images of Hitler learning Spanish well enough to pass for a native if publicly met or confronted in those places. And perhaps Kissinger's inquiry was more of a nature of "Where is he now, or where was he last?" than it was "Did he survive, and if so, where?"
There is, however, a very curious feature of this memorandum, and that is its attachment, for according to the memorandum itself, there is an "Attachment: Elections Memorandum" attached to the document for Mr. Kissinger, which "Elections Memo" was "rafted by "INR: RCJorhgonson"(sic).
In a time when Americans' attention is focused on a growing pile of evidence that many of its federal, state, and local elections are riddled with fraud and illegality, why an election memo would be attached to a memorandum on Hitler's survival in Franco's Spain raises some eyebrows, and some questions: was the real purpose of Kissinger's inquiry because he suspected that some sort of postwar Nazi organization was manipulating elections somewhere? Or conversely, because he was afraid such manipulation might be exposed (after all, Mr. Kissinger was also a member of the Carl Duisberg society, as I pointed out in my book on 9/11, Hidden Finance, Rogue Networks, and Secret Sorcery, as was alleged hi-jacker Mohammed Atta. You just can't make this stuff up folks.) The question assumes some importance, given the interconnectedness of the modern world, self-evidently fascist organizations and philosophies like the World Economic Forum, and its founder's own weird connections.
One thing seems clear: the postwar interest of various American and Soviet (and presumably other) intelligence agencies in Hitler's survival is not merely for curiosity or any purpose of justice. The attachment to this memorandum suggests that there is interest in postwar Nazi activity...
See you on the flip side...
