The defence against bombers was by use of planes which Americans called "Foo Fighters." These were tiny jet-propelled craft "buttoned" to the base of steel poles and shot vertically intyo the air at the tremnedous speed of rockets. Pilots inside guided planes at 550 miles an hour, intercepting bomber formations with sprays of rocket shells fired from the noses of the craft.

This report seems to be confusing foo fighters with the Me-163 Komet, which was a small, piloted rocket plane. I don't know of any reports where a plane was shot down by a foo fighter, which are usually reported as following the planes at the same speed, rather than zooming past shooting, like the Komet. Somebody be mixed up.
Originally posted by GrayFoxThe fact that we never found the "source" of the foo fighters seems to indicate that they were probably alien.
It has been confirmed that the Nazi's designed, flown, and even used some pretty advanced technology. But they never got the chance to make them work exactly as designed.

Wouldn't you think that if the Nazi's had such high tech weapons; they could have won the air war at least, if not the entire war?

No. Not even close. The fact we didn't find the source of them means it's more likely that they were misidentifications of something else, or simply pilot error. That's all. Not having a satisfactory answer doesn't give anyone carte blanche to claim it was "aliens" and leave it at that. For it to be probably aliens, evidence of actual aliens would be required. As it is, we have none, so leaping to that conclusion belies your desire for foo fighters to be of alien origin.
So, as it is, it's highly improbable that it was aliens behind the foo fighters.
