Last paragraph doesn't make any sense...[edit]

Not seeing the connection to Carlos the Jackal - or is it just badly written? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.207.2.2 (talk) 19:59, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

Nazi Party membership[edit]

Under the heading "Career", the article states "From 1940 to 1945, he was a member of the Nazi Party." This is rather odd. First, because during that period, there were about 8.5 million members of the Nazi Party (about 8.499,000 of whom do not have Wikis), so his membership is not necessarily noteworthy unless he is known to have participated as a Party member in some significant role. Second, the vast majority of Party members during that time were civilians, rather than the image that comes to mind of a Nazi "stormtrooper" or uniform-wearing official. Again -- Buback's actual role needs to be explained. Third, the only mention of Buback's actual career in the article is that he became Germany's Attorney General in 1974 (almost 30 years after the end of the Nazi Party). Simply being a member of the Nazi Party was hardly a "career", nor does his former Party membership seem to have resulted in him becoming the German AG, so this non sequitur of Buback's membership should not be included under this heading.
