|Official NSA report on US Intelligence German police intercept decrypts concerning monthly concentration camp reports during WWII. Gas chambers are nowhere mentioned by the German police but inferred by the author of this report
Subjects: The Holocaust Source: Center for Cryptologic History: National Security Agency
This is an official NSA
From p. 69:
"Perhaps the most pertinent class list, HW 16, is the German police decrypts. This collection constitutes the most complete set of existing police decrypts...HW 16/10 contains the German Police Concentration Camp (GPCC) monthly reports of the inmate totals for a number of camps. These totals include arrivals, losses, and various nationalities and groups, including Jews. These reports did not carry information about those who arrived in the trains and were immediately murdered in gas chambers."
Michael Hoffman Comments:
Notice here the epistemology of Dogmatic True Belief (DTB). The top secret German Concentration Camp Police reports do not report deaths by gassing, even though they are top secret. In this case, the NSA should have written: There was no mention in these secret reports of any inmate being gassed in a gas chamber.
Instead, the NSA upholds DTB with a twisted epistemology: the phantom gas chamber victims are mentioned as a fact by NSA ("those who arrived in the trains and were immediately murdered in gas chambers”), even though there is no evidence of the operation of homicidal gas chambers in the top secret Concentration Camp Police reports under review by the NSA — these reports being "the most complete set of existing police decrypts."
Rather than pointing out that the German police decrypts do not support the allegation of gassings, DTB requires that phantom gassings be cited as fact, in spite of the evidence to the contrary.
