The Witness - S4-E23

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, the guys are listening in on Klink's office. The cup in front of Newkirk has four pencils in it. The colors from left to right are yellow, red, blue, and orange. After the camera cuts to Hogan and Kinch, the wide shot shows five pencils arranged yellow, black, blue, red, and orange.

Trivia: A sinister aspect of an otherwise lightheated comedy, but the fact is that Hogan and his men are war criminals. They engage in combat activities behind enemy lines when not in uniform, and worse, while wearing enemy uniforms. The Germans tried that during the Battle of the Bulge and those arrested were shot.

Answer: Nimrod's actual identity was never revealed in the series. It was only known that he was a British intelligence agent. Nimrod was not Colonel Klink. Hogan had only implied it was him as a ruse to get Klink returned as camp commandant, not wanting him replaced by someone more competent who would impede the Heroes war activities. (As another contributor previously posted, the term "nimrod" is slang for a nerdy, doofus type of person, though it's unclear why that was his code name).
