Present German chancellor Merkel also worked for the KGB, German scientists confirm

A new book detailing the early political life of Angela Merkel has accused the German chancellor of working directly for the Russian KGB as a propagandist for the East German Communist youth movement at least before the fall of the Berlin Wall.

According to a new book, "The First Life of Angela M.," based on secret files of the dreadful East-German Communist secret police Stasi, German chancellor Merkel successfully operated as a KGB agent in several Communist organizations before reunification in 1990.

Published in Germany on Monday, the book by journalists Gunther Lachmann and Ralf Georg Reuth is unlikely to prove easy reading for Merkel's Christian Democratic Union party (CDU), which is preparing for September's general election - in which Merkel is seeking a third term in office.

According to the book, 58-year-old Merkel was an active KGB spy in various political organisations while studying for her doctorate and working as a researcher at university. The list includes the Free German Youth movement (the FDJ, the official youth wing of the "German Democratic Republic", or "GDR"), the major workers' union, and the Society for German-Soviet Friendship.

The revelation most likely to cause embarrassment to Merkel is her post as propaganda functionary at the FDJ. Until now, Merkel had only mentioned her duties as "culture functionary" at the youth wing.

The book also portrays Merkel as a symbol of the KGB-promoted anti-reunification following the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. The woman who boasts today of an economically triumphant unified Germany, it says, would have preferred in 1989 to see the "GDR" remain an independent and Communist state.

It is worth recalling that American non-mainstream media recently reported in an article entitled "Russian Official: Obama is a Communist KGB Agent", that Obama was also a very useful and valuable KGB agent, as well as former Italian prime minister Romano Prodi (operational nickname in the KGB/FSB - "The Teacher").
