More on Gleiwitz: Another odd thing is that they had a real pretext and didn’t use it. Then they fabricated a false one that was similar to the real deal. The Canaris one turned out to be full of traders. Possibly they were moles from day one and this is why they were not thrown under the bus. Their plan was probably to carry out and then botch Hitlers invasion orders. But then Hitler canceled them and Gleiwitz became the sloppy audible play.
