With hints last week from the son of Buback, that a "source in the RAF environment" told him Klar did not fire the shots, a broad debate is on in Germany as to who then did it.</p><p>Today, the <em>Spiegel</em> weekly carries a cover story revealing that anti-terror authorities have been in possession of hints for 25 years, that none of the alleged three Buback killers actually did it. In 1982, RAF member Verena Becker leaked to investigators that another RAF member, Stefan Wisniewski, was the killer. And in 1990, Silke Maier-Witt, who was then arrested in her former East Germany exile, revealed that the aforesaid Knut Folkerts was not even in Karlsruhe where Buback was killed that day, but at the German-Dutch border, waiting for her to pick her up, as she came from Amsterdam.</p><p>None of this necessarily is the truth, either, but one thing is already clear, and is sparking a heated debate in Germany about the question as to why these hints were kept secret from the public all those years? It seems, anyway, that the recent BueSo "Schreibtischtaeter II" pamphlet on the Antifa, which also contains new leads into the RAF, has stirred up relevant circles in Germany, enhancing the desire to dig out the real truth about the RAF.</p></div></body>
