I have said all I want to say.
Fair enough. But I think your approach is rather tunnel visioned, having now been provided with 7 books now on the subject, 2 of them written by respected members of this forum, in addition to a photograph where no one comes out and says: that isn't Eichmann.
One more thing regarding Kaltenbrunner at Nuremberg. His defence was truly pathetic to the extent that he denied visiting Mauthausen (despite photographs and eyewitness testimony to the contrary) and even accused Heinrich Muller of forging signatures on documents that he'd signed.
Even his own defence counsel Dr Kaufmann didn't believe a word he said.
Finally, all of the following who were with Kaltenbrunner during the last days referred to meetings with both Eichmann and Skorzeny in their debriefings. See:
Wilhelm Hoettl (Third Army Preliminary Interrogation Report No. 17, June 1945)
Wilhelm Waneck (12th Army Group Intermediate Interrogation Report, June 21, 1945),
Werner Goettsch (USFET Final Interrogation Report No. 8, July 24, 1945)
I have no idea how to access US archives, but the information above is accurate.

This too is my last post on the matter. People can read all the above links, attachments, posts and book details and reach their own conclusions one way or another...
