Oh, they absolutely had General Patton assassinated otherwise he might have come home and run for president.
They put a leash on him too so he didn't beat the Russians to Berlin; but his success was such that had he continued, he might have jeopardized Ultra (not MKUltra!)
“Oh, they absolutely had General Patton assassinated...”
Actually, no. The full story only came out a few years ago.
He was wounded in a crash with an oncoming army truck. He died several days later.
The driver of the truck had been driving drunk, and when Patton found out about it he refused to have the man charged. He said the man had made a mistake and shouldn’t suffer the rest of his life for it.
The story was never told until after the driver of the truck died. His son told the story.
