In addition to which, even if there were a movement in Iraq similar to the worst of possible redoubts, e.g., to go even further in the current administration's direction, the case does not make their point. In fact, it rather embarrases them: if that other Republican President, Eisenhower, who was a professional soldier, had enough sense to stay out

of that kind of situation, then why didn't this one? Wouldn't it make more sense for the Bush cause to deny we have anything like an organized resistance going on over there, since you have already announced the end of all organized resistence? I'm going to get a marguarita—this is

making less sense to me the more I think about

it.

Thanks, Dave. The messages that have come back to me and my snooping around the Internet show that there were cases of sniping, looting, and cutting of phone lines by armed bands in Germany for some weeks after

reports below and the

the war. The assassinations of two mayors as Dave

later murders of three American officers in their apartment in Passau are also recorded, but neither the perps nor their motives are known. There is no indication that either the central command or the field

units of the Werwolf {AKA "Wehrwolf"}organization existed after the

of a few

die-hard Nazis and of a few American [not British?] intell officers and commanders. It appears that the White House speech writers have been dredging through history for scary precedents to today's situation. Watch for the appearances of Frankenstein's monster, the Golem, and other apparitions from the past. Since writing the above, I found an article in today's LA Times by Maura Reynolds, "Postwar Iraq is No Germany, Historians Say." It concludes that there was nothing much to the Werewolf bugaboo, surely nothing like the attacks in Iraq -- which, incidentally, have been greatly underreported.

Fall of Berlin. He says,

"Ultimately, Werwolf achieved very little, apart from a couple of assassinations--the mayors of Aachen and Krankenhagen--and the

intimidation of

controllers to prepare terrorist acts, had sneaked home" (p. 175). Not only are they making up the intel--they are apparently making up the history. Dave Thomas Collier wrote: Condoleeza Rice told the VFW yesterday that SS Werewolves attacked Allied forces and Germans who cooperated with them "much like today's Baathist & Fedayeen remnants." I don't recall the Werewolves and the "Bavarian Redoubt" as being anything more than propaganda & intelligence fictions. I reread Gordon Wright's "Ordeal of Total War," which does not mention any postwar German resistance, and "The West Point Atlas," which calls the Werewolves "an outstanding failure." Different spooky Internet sources claim that a mayor of a German town was assassinated in March 45 and that 3 US civilians were killed in Passau after the war. I will try to read Trevor-Roper's "The Last Days of Hitler" later today, but ask you if you know any more about Rice's claims. Having stretched intell to its limits, is the Administration now doing the same to history? Tom Collier
