PDF:   Dear Sir or Madam,

For more than 25 years, I have been interested in understanding why Europe and Germany were divided for so long. There are many theories about this, some saying it was due to Winston Churchill, some arguing the Americans, some claiming it was because of the Soviets, but none saying that a number of influential Germans contributed to this confrontation as they wished to reorganise Germany in order to prevent them from paying for the war.

I would like to learn whether Americans have considered this idea after studying the Rosewood files they got hold of after 1990. I would also like to know if you still think Kohl wanted the unification of Germany. Did John F. Kennedy understand Nikita Chruschtschow when he was told Adenauer did not want unification? If I am right in thinking that the Cold War only started because Washington was fooled by Germany after World War II, this should play a role in your current foreign policies. I see a parallel between the beginning of the Cold War and the second war against Iraq. Again, incorrect information about another country coming from Germany got the US believing that the country possessed weapons of mass destruction. That was exactly what Reinhard Gehlen (BND) told you about the Soviet Union in 1945. From that time on the United States has been afraid of a threat from abroad. There is certainly no threat from abroad except for Germany.

I was very much surprised when I read Legacy of Ashes: The History of the CIA written by Tim Weiner. He is looking for answers to his questions in Korea, in China, in the Soviet Union and in America itself, but he does not have a closer look at Gehlen and the Germans. Gehlen gave you incorrect information.

When you started your war against Iraq, you must have been extremely surprised that Kanzler Schröder then suddenly announced he would not join that war. This would mean Washington still commits old mistakes. Kanzler Helmut Schmidt once wrote that it was not an American strength to look back from time to time. Yet this is exactly what others do all the time. How else could one avoid being fooled the same way over and over again? I would be grateful if you would have a look at my pages about the beginning of the Cold War. Others might already share my ideas.

I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Yours sincerely,
Reinhard Leube
