In the past, I always thought that Forrestal's crack up was more because he imagined the Russians were coming. That's the official version, anyway, but in the UFO business the official version is almost always a load of horse hockey.
I love the idea, and it would make a great sifi movie plot. That the Nazi Bell, Die Glocke, code name Chronos, which means "time" was indeed a time machine. Able to move space time around itself avoiding inertia in the process. Was workable and that Kammler escaped after removing all the witnesses he could. Advanced himself to the future to Kecksburg, Pennsylvania where in December 9, 1965, a fiery-trailed, brilliantly glowing object flew in a piloted manner and crashed landed in the woods. Perhaps he was picked up by the local military by chance or part of operation paper clip. Perhaps he escaped into the woods and hitchhiked his way across America.
Few things do more harm than the belief that life should be Dramatic.

The sad (for alternative history buffs) fact is that if the Germans had possessed any signifigant number of the 'wonder weapons' they are rumored to have had, they would have won the war. Put a ton of N-stoff aboard your Hannebu and visit Washington; who's gonna stop you? So there was nothing there, or nothing much.
Incidentally, high-ranking Germans lied to Hitler all the time. When the boss won't hear bad news, well, he doesn't, and the ambitious subordinate doesn't try to tell him: which is why Hitler spent his last month issuing orders to armies that had ceased to exist.
