Well a couple years later Germany might have drones so somebody 16000 km away could be helpful.
OTL the US had drones (radio controlled pilot less full sized planes) filming the Bikini Nuclear Tests so they could get closer in to film and not risk pilots. With the advance in technology ITTL we should be seeing drones as we know them in about 10 years.Well a couple years later Germany might have drones so somebody 16000 km away could be helpful.
Pounds to peanuts that if Kat's mum (Suse Rosa) had have lived, Grandmother and Granddaughter might have found themselves with a lot of traits in common. Of course, only speculation on my part, but sometimes these traits skip a generation before surfacing again.... If anything, Marie was a total eccentric with her ever-changing appearance and persona. It was something that put off most of her peers. There was also her love of literature and plays as well as her inclination towards being completely frivolous at times. It was something that Marie shared with neither her nor Douglas and Kat had no idea where that had come from.

Indeed, in fact the most heartbreaking part of this is that what Kat is seeing, without realising it, is what could have been without the events that she grew up with.Pounds to peanuts that if Kat's mum (Suse Rosa) had have lived, Grandmother and Granddaughter might have found themselves with a lot of traits in common.

So the TTL version of Vietnam or Afghanistan (Soviet or American) may well be Argentina.Chapter Two Thousand Ten
“Us?” Scowcroft asked in reply, “Nothing. I would hope. Right now, South America is a web of interlocking alliances and precarious economies. The Germans getting involved in what has the potential to be a bottomless morass actually works out quite well for us.”
It isn't. You might recall this flash forward post from some time ago that I did as a gag.With the way this spying works in this universe its probably another German con-job.
The leak in question is the same one that the CIA is working in the last post.4th July 1978
It was a hot, humid summer night which made most of the disguises that Tatiana might have employed impossible, as it was the blond wig was itching. At the moment she was trying to get out of the city because the dead drop in the Boston Commons had been empty. That meant that Billy was compromised, and the FBI would be only minutes behind her. Entering the station Tatiana was thankful to be off the street. The relief was short-lived as several policemen walked onto the platform. It could have been that they were looking for her or they might be here in anticipation of the crowds going home after watching the fireworks display. Fortunately, the train rolled into the station, Tatiana boarded and found a seat. A minute later she saw that two policemen were walking down the car checking IDs.
“Identification Miss?” One of the policemen asked.
Tatiana handed him the ID, she had been told that as far as Law Enforcement was concerned, it was real.
“Anne Morgan” The officer asked, “From Lynn?”
“Salem” Tatiana said, with as much attitude as she could muster.
It had been a clumsy attempt to trip her up. She had worked hard to have the right sort of accent for here in Massachusetts. The one she had been born with tended to get noticed. When the policeman handed back her identification and continued down the car she caught a glimpse of the flyer in his other hand. Suspect, white female, age 27, 5'6", 125 pounds, blue eyes, short brown hair, considered extremely dangerous.
The leak, the one that her mother had said that Aunt Asia was hunting had struck again and it couldn’t have come at a worse time…
Very well. Apologies.It isn't. You might recall this flash forward post from some time ago that I did as a gag.

The situation is not like the Cold War from our timeline in that Germany is seen as an annoying rival as opposed to an existential threat. So, no pounding of shoes on tables or nuclear brinksmanship in Cuba. The focus of the CIA in TTL for the last decade has been China and South of the Rio Grande because turbulence in those countries tends to send a flood of refugees into America. When Germany was seen as a threat ITTL during the "Kraut scare" the CIA was pulling its collective hair out over the FBI launching investigations and conducting harsh interrogations of people with German grandparents. That action had the effect of depriving the CIA of their best available assets to conduct operations inside the Empire.Still, the only successful spy the us/Brits have had so far iirc is the dude who entered Abwhr headquarters and stole that coding tape that implicated Schultz.
