Anton Webern, Arnold Schoenberg, and the A-Bomb?

Deal W. Hudson presents anecdotal evidence that "the twelve tone music of Anton Webern and Arnold Schoenberg was deliberately invented as a means of relaying Nazi intelligence about the atomic bomb," suggesting, "The written notation of this ugly music was used to pass Nazi secrets in and out of the Manhattan Project at Los Alamos, New Mexico" — Maritain Vindicated.

UPDATE: A reader provides a link showing this to be an urban legend — Webern's Dodecaphonic Conspiracy.

Thanks. It sounded fake. I should have gone along with my better judgment.
