German diplomats maintained a cozy relationship with the Black September terrorists responsible for the 1972 massacre of Israeli athletes at the Munich Summer Olympics. Expressing sympathy for the Palestinians, they never made a serious attempt at extraditing the terrorists behind the attack. A number of contradictions are evident in examining the record of the events, including a discrepancy in the number of terrorists actually involved in the incident, the German security forces’ lack of rifles at the airport (they were planning to snipe the terrorists at the airport), and the Germans’ refusal of cooperation by Israeli intelligence and security forces.
German authorities had a warning three weeks before the Olympics massacre of 1972. With security headed by an officer of the BND, the final incarnation of the Gehlen “Org” and with neo-Nazis assisting the Palestinian terrorists, this comes as no surprise. The BND Olympics security chief has also been accused of staging provocations and providing an alibi for a Nazi leader in the 1980 Oktoberfest bombing.
German intelligence destroys file on Nazi terrorists the day before it was to be turned over to prosecutors. Previous reportage indicated that German domestic intelligence may have helped to finance the group through paid informants.
German neo-Nazis aided in the 1972 Olympics massacre in Munich. To what extent might they have conspired with German intelligence and law enforcement,both of which have a history of complicity with Nazi terrorism? Might some of these elements have been complicit with other terrorist incidents?
Mr. Emory believes terrorist elements associated with the Underground Reich that were recruited to help the United States actually have “doubled on America”.
