Newly declassified FBI documents prove that the government knew Hitler was alive and well, and living in the Andes Mountains long after World War II.
On April 30 1945, Adolf Hitler committed suicide in his underground bunker. His body was later discovered and identified by the Soviets before being rushed back to Russia. Is it really possible that the Soviets have been lying all this time, and that history has purposely been rewritten?
No one thought so until the release of the FBI documents. It seems that it is possible that the most hated man in history escaped war torn Germany and lived a bucolic and peaceful life in the beautiful foothills of the Andes Mountains.
THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY KNEW.
Recently released FBI documents are beginning to show that not only was Hitler and Eva Braunís suicide faked, the infamous pair might have had help from the Swiss Director of the United States OSS himself, Allen Dulles.
In one FBI document from Los Angeles, it is revealed that the agency was well aware of a mysterious submarine making its way up the Argentinean coast dropping off high level Nazi officials. What is even more astonishing is the fact that the FBI knew he was in fact living in the foothills of the Andes.
WHO IS THE MYSTERIOUS INFORMANT?
In a Los Angeles letter to the Bureau in August of 1945, an unidentified informant agreed to exchange information for political asylum. What he told agents was stunning.
The informant not only knew Hitler was in Argentina, he was one of the confirmed four men who had met the German submarine. Apparently, two submarines had landed on the Argentinean coast, and Hitler with Eva Braun was on board the second.
The Argentinean government not only welcomed the former German dictator, but also aided in his hiding. The informant went on to not only give detailed directions to the villages that Hitler and his party had passed through, but also credible physical details concerning Hitler.
While for obvious reasons the informant is never named in the FBI papers, he was credible enough to be believed by some agents.
The FBI Tried to Hide Hitlerís Whereabouts.
Even with a detailed physical description and directions the FBI still did not follow up on these new leads. Even with evidence placing the German sub U-530 on the Argentinean coast shortly before finally surrounding, and plenty of eye witness accounts of German official being dropped off, no one investigated.
EVEN MORE EVIDENCE IS FOUND:
Along with the FBI documents detailing an eye witness account of Hitlerís whereabouts in Argentina, more evidence is coming to light to help prove that Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun did not die in that bunker.
In 1945, the Naval Attachť in Buenos Aires informed Washington there was a high probability that Hitler and Eva Braun had just arrived in Argentina. This coincides with the sightings of the submarine U-530. Added proof comes in the form of newspaper articles detailing the construction of a Bavarian styled mansion in the foothills of the Andes Mountains.
Further proof comes in the form of architect Alejandro Bustillo who wrote about his design and construction of Hitlerís new home which was financed by earlier wealthy German immigrants.
IRREFUTABLE EVIDENCE THAT HITLER ESCAPED:
Perhaps the most damming evidence that Hitler did survive the fall of Germany lies in Russia. With the Soviet occupation of Germany, Hitlerís supposed remains were quickly hidden and sent off to Russia, never to be seen again. That is until 2009, when archeologist, Nicholas Bellatoni was allowed to perform DNA testing on one of the skull fragments recovered.
What he discovered set off a reaction through the intelligence and scholarly communities. Not only did the DNA not match any recorded samples thought to be Hitlerís, they did not match Eva Braunís familiar DNA either. So the question is, what did the Soviets discover in the bunker, and where is Hitler?
Even former general and President Dwight D. Eisenhower wrote to Washington.
It was not only General Eisenhower who was concerned over Hitlerís compete disappearance, Stalin also expressed his concerns. In 1945, the Stars and Stripes newspaper quoted then General Eisenhower as believing that the real possibility existed of Hitler living safely and comfortably in Argentina.
IS IT POSSIBLE?
With all of the new found evidence coming to light, it is possible and even likely that not only did Hitler escape from Germany; he had the help of the international intelligence community. Released FBI documents prove that they were not only aware of Hitlerís presence in Argentina; they were also helping to cover it up.
It would not be the first time the OSS helped a high ranking Nazi official to escape punishment and capture. Look at the story of Adolf Eichmann who was located in Argentina in the 1960ís.
Did Hitler escape to Argentina? The answer is yes.
Facebook to Buy Drone Company Titan Aerospace for $60 Million
By Julianne Pepitone
The next step on Facebook's path to Internet-connecting the entire globe is a high-tech one: buying up drones.
Facebook is slated to buy New Mexico-based drone maker Titan Aerospace for about $60 million, a source confirmed to CNBC on Tuesday. The blog TechCrunch first reported the news of a possible Facebook-Titan deal.
Facebook is supposedly interested in Titan because its solar-powered drones ó which can reportedly stay airborne for five years ó can help Facebook achieve its goal of providing Internet access around the world.
Last year Facebook announced it would lead an initiative called Internet.org, which aims to bring Internet connectivity to the two-thirds of the world's population that currently lacks access. Facebook could potentially launch Titan's drones in those unconnected regions.
Drones have recently emerged as a burgeoning area of technology, with even major U.S. companies like FedEx and Amazon hoping to employ the unmanned devices. (The commercial use of drones is not currently permitted by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, but the group is slated to unveil new guidelines by the end of 2015.)
Facebook also wouldn't be the first to use floating devices for global Internet connectivity. Last summer Google launched Project Loon, a pilot program testing Internet access via solar-powered helium balloons.
