The fact is he was looking to return to Germany where he probably would have believed the kidnapping would be behind him. Sounds like a bit of a pattern in the making if you ask me, based on his prior escape to America when things got a bit too hot in the Fatherland. Who knows what would have happened if he had actually made it back to to Germany before he was nabbed. He might have honked the Fuehrer's nose and then have been forced to jump ship back to America.
