“So much of this intelligence, CIA disinformation about Hitler being killed and that cover story. So much of our history is disinformation planted by intelligence agencies. …governments lie, and they to the people constantly to cover up…. And it’s a shame that we don’t have a more active media…. We should never take at face value what government says.”
“We helped Hitler escape is the point of the book.”

Author Jerome Corsi talked about his new book, Hunting Hitler, which explores the historical possibility that Hitler escaped Nazi Germany at the end of World War II. FBI and CIA records indicate that the U.S. government took seriously reports that Hitler had escaped to Argentina. The traditional story is that Adolf Hitler committed suicide in his underground bunker, along with his mistress Eva Braun in April, 1945. Later the Russian Army was said to discover them and photograph Hitler, making sure the bullet hole in his forehead was visible. But Corsi believes this was a Hitler “double” who, while he bore some similarities, was three inches shorter than the Fuhrer. Dental records also didn’t match, he added.
In 2009, archaeologist Nicholas Bellantoni, working with the History Channel for a MysteryQuest documentary, was allowed by the Russians to view Hitler’s alleged skull fragments. He concluded that the skull belonged to a person who was 40 or younger (Hitler was 56 at the time of his supposed death), and the fragments indicated they came from a woman rather than a man, Corsi recounted, adding that DNA results backed up Bellantoni’s assertions.
According to FDR’s Sec. of State, James F. Byrnes, during a meeting with Joseph Stalin in Ukraine, Stalin told him that he believed Hitler was still alive and was possibly living in either Spain or Argentina. In 1945, General Eisenhower also said he believed Hitler had escaped. Martin Bormann was said to create a special escape route into Argentina as their current regime was sympathetic to the Nazi cause. Various documents suggest that Hitler’s escape from Germany may have involved fleeing in a helicopter to Austria, then flying to Barcelona, and eventually arriving in Argentina via a German submarine. After he arrived, he lived in somewhat luxury for the next 20 years, until he died in 1965, Corsi detailed.
