Spurious FBI Quote Suggests Hitler Lived

Falling into today's "how sad is this?" category, I find the following from some contributor to the Daily Grail website:

recently in news, the FBI of america had quoted: "Reports have been found and clues have been discovered that Adolf Hitler had not actually commited suicide as the reports said after the second world war." "He escaped to argentina and it is said to have lived there for atleast 11 years"

Besides sounding nothing like anything the FBI would waste their time on, the wording seemed sophomoric and unprofessional, as if not from a legitimate press release or public statement. Curious, I googled the quote and found not a single reputable news source associated with it. I only saw conspiracy theory websites.

Now, we come to the truly sad part: in all of the comments beneath the post on the Daily Grail, not one of them--regardless of their position in the matter--challenged the veracity of this unattributed quote.

But what can I expect from a blogger who furnished us this subsequent sentence. You read correctly; the following is all one sentence:

Well, many ppl may think that this is just plain B.S, but I personally think that this subject is something to ponder about, I mean, after all Hitler's corpse has not been recovered till date, nor are there any traces of him killing himself, if the reports were true that hitler had shot himself in his bunker, no blood stains, bullet holes or any trace of death is visible in the place, FBI has recently said that hitler could have easily escaped among some of his nazi people past the incoming soviet troopers, into one of his U-boats and make his way to argentina, furthermore, some argentinians have said that they did see hitler in the country.
