brilliant but to short
15 March 2006 | by flirtfoxSee all my reviews

This documentation seems to be a conspiracy theory but it shows some illogical conclusions which was made on the dead of this German politician to make the public clear that he died by suicide. This dubious politician was nearly to publish some political secrets and announced this short before he died. It must be also a risk to make film about this story because until today the politicians tried to sweep this case under the carpet. And the press who loved to write about such conspiracy stuff wrote only a short time about this suicide. I never believe that such homicide could even be possible behind a political background in Germany. But we had some similar cases before i.e. The "Rosemarie Nitribitt" a famous German prostitute who were killed 1957 because she was in contact with German politician and industrial bosses who shared sensitive secrets to her. In this case the truth were also diluted until today. In the US we know also similar cases "Kennedy" and "Marilin Monroe" who are much more popular. To save political power nothing is impossible.
