A German court has paved the way for the release of secret files about executed Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann.
In a decision announced last Friday, the Federal Administrative Court in Leipzig found the German government's objections to release of the documents too vague.
Imagine that it is 1940, and Great Britain is fighting Hitler's Nazi Germany almost alone. Imagine, further, that an American who loves both America and England and hates the Nazis works in American intelligence and has access to secret files concerning Germany that, for whatever reason, the United States has not shared with Great Britain. This American gives the secrets to England and is caught.
