Jerome Corsi received a Ph.D. from Harvard University in Political Science in 1972. In 1981, he received a Top Secret clearance from the Agency for International Development. In the first half, he discussed his recent work exploring the historical possibility that Hitler escaped Nazi Germany at the end of World War II. Recently released CIA documents indicate that the US government took seriously reports that Hitler had escaped to Argentina. The official story is that as the Russians were approaching, Hitler committed suicide on April 30, 1945 along with his new bride Eva Braun, taking cyanide capsules in their underground bunker, and then they were cremated and placed in a shallow grave. The Russians were said to do an autopsy, along with looking at dental records, and announced that Hitler was indeed dead. Yet, the people who were still in the bunker when the Russians arrived all had contradictory stories, Corsi noted.
The Russians claim that a skull that was found on the site was Hitler's, but it was eventually revealed that the skull belonged to a 40-year-old woman. Corsi has concluded that Hitler escaped in one of two Nazi submarines that made it to Argentina, as was referenced in a US Navy intelligence document. He believes Hitler fled the bunker around April 8, 1945, as this is when his double was first reported to appear. He suggested that one of the reasons Hitler's escape was never exposed is that no one wanted to admit this or take responsibility. For more, check out photos and documents Corsi shared with us.
Kevin D. Randle is a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel who toured in both Vietnam and Iraq. In the latter half, he addressed his recent work on the UFO landing at Socorro, NM which has been wrapped in controversy almost from the moment in 1964 that police officer Lonnie Zamora watched a craft descend and land. Zamora saw two beings near the craft (described as looking like children or small adults wearing coveralls) and a symbol on the ship. There were four landing gear traces that were found pressed into the ground, Randle detailed. Additionally, there was a nearby bush that seemed to be smoking, though it was not hot to the touch.
He has ruled out the idea that what Zamora saw was an experimental military craft, as it's unlikely we wouldn't know about it more than 50 years later. A second sighting similar to Zamora's took place in the same time frame near Santa Fe, but the Air Force never investigated, Randle continued. While Zamora submitted to military and FBI interrogations, the real problem, Randle indicated, was how he was derided by the media, though Walter Cronkite gave the story serious coverage on the CBS Evening News. There was also speculation that the sighting had been cooked up by the Socorro mayor & Zamora to establish Socorro as a tourist attraction but Randle did not find evidence for that.
