Hmmm.... I wonder who did make the approval if the kaiser was unaware? Any names, perhaps?

What is your source for the claim that Lenin's trip was approved, facilitated and financed by authorisation of German Supreme Command?

Maybe the plan to assist Lenin did not come from people working in the best interest of Germany but people loyal to only their own people? There did seem to be some "court Jews" (as antisemites like to call them) drifting around in the slipstream of the Kaiser. As most Jews back then seemed to have been either Communist or Zionist it doesn't seem too farfetched that the plan was at least set in motion by the "court Jews" who were looking out for their own people without regard for the German people. I can't prove this either way, but this was, at least, what Hitler must have thought of this event.
