The Assassination of John F. Kennedy Jr.


(Photo: Caroline Kennedy, Jacqueline Kennedy, and JFK Jr, saluting the coffin of his father. It’s one of the most famous pictures in the American History).

 I have always been fascinated by the different conspiracy theories regarding the plane crash of JFK Jr.  Last night, I did a whole lot of digging on the internet and found the following video that talks about the Manchurian Candidate Theory. It’s 1 hr 46 mins long; but it’s really compelling. It’s also available in 11 parts on Youtube– each part is about 10 mins long. Most of the people who commented on Youtube don’t believe this stuff, but funnily, I fell for it. Even though it might not be true, it does address some relevant questions. The ruling President of United States, along with the CIA and FAA, are the main culprits according to this video. It’s said that because JFK Jr. got hold of the “Gemstone Files” of his father’s death , and because of that, he was murdered. The video also goes on to claim that the initial reports in the media which pointed to the fact that JFK Jr. actually made contact with the ground officials at the Martha Vineyard airport was later hushed up by the Pentagon, who replaced the truth with their fictitious lies.

This page has a lot of information too.  I don’t know if it’s verifiable or not. It relies on evidence  by someone called True Ott, who supposedly, corresponded with JFK Jr. regarding his father JFK Sr’s death. 

Some more interesting stuff regarding the Gemstone File that contained important information pertaining to JFK’s assassination has been documented in this blog.

I wonder how the most prominent members of the Kennedy family- JFK Jr, JFK Sr, Robert Kennedy, Joseph Kennedy, John Kennedy etc- just ‘died’. Obviously, there has to be something more to it. Maybe I’m a bozo, but the above cited links and videos make a lot of sense to me. It would be interesting to know what you people, who are reading this post, think.

  1. I am very interested in the Kennedy family particularly JFK. However I don’t believe in the conspiracy theories. From what I have read JKF Jr was reckless and a bit of a playboy.
    And if robert kennedy and JFK were assassinated it was because they were political figures, other american presidents have been assassinated too.
    Look at the Gandhi family (no I don’t admire them much!) Indira Gandhi assassinated and also Rajiv Gandhi. And the brash Sanjay Gandhi was killed in an accident, yes I believe it was an accident. He was reckless.

  2. @lallo, Actually, not many people think about these things. I like reading about controversies that surround the death of famous personalities like Bose, Sanjay Gandhi, Marilyn Monroe, Lady Diana etc.

    @Poonam, gotta be kidding me! I’ve hardly ever written something similar. But thank you anyway 🙂

  3. @Nita:

    From what I have read JKF Jr was reckless and a bit of a playboy.

    Yes, that’s the general notion in the media. I remember watching the coverage on the Kennedy family a couple of years back, and this was the story that the History Channel went with. During his lifetime, JFK Jr. actually admitted it that his father JFK Sr. was murdered probably. If you see the radar meter of JFK Jr’s plane, then it becomes quite evident that there was foul play involved. The radar meter shows an extremely sharp decline in altitude- like a vertical straight line. It’s impossible for a plane to be in that position even if the pilot was reckless… Besides, that plane had a lot of auto pilot features and it would have traveled for at least 10 miles without any assistance. Also, JFK Jr. was only about 10 miles away from the airport of Martha’s Vineyard.

    He was a bit of playboy, I agree. In fact, most of the Kennedys were, incl. JFK Sr. and Robert Kennedy. The former (and probably the latter also) had a famous affair with Marilyn Monroe.

    I totally agree with you on the Gandhi family assassinations. Many people believe that Sanjay Gandhi’s death was a murder…I don’t think so.

  4. U watched d movie JFK? It throws a lot of light on the assassination. And after watching it, one finds that almost everyone except JFK himself was a part of the conspiracy. And it’s too researched.

    Ur post was also enlightening. But I guess one can never be sure about the answers to this haunting question.

  5. okay, u finally dug the truth out…!!

    i wish u hadnt…and soon u will wish too..
    because u cannot handle the truth…

    YES…I DID IT…!!!

    I was just a kid back then..but he just used to annoy the hell out of me ….., I had no choice but to sabotage his plane…

    he was no. 13 on my list of 30. (30kill, tis mar, makes sense??)

  6. @indisch:

    Oh yes! While the movie itself doesn’t actually stick to the facts, what it does is open your mind to the fact that the assassination was a conspiracy. I didn’t like the way Garrisson was potrayed. But overall, it was a good movie. Very adrenaline pumping.

    Probably no one will ever know the answer to these questions. But then, wasn’t Galileo also shunned when he proposed the model of the Solar System a few hundred years back? May be the world will know the truth; we might not remain alive. 🙂

    @fibinse, What do you mean? And why do I detect an accusatory tone in that comment?

    @tismar, Errr…not funny! 😐

  7. Hey Ruhi, You know what? These kinds of mysteries have always interested me.. very nice article… will c the videos fr sure..
    especially diana’s death, the shankaracharya controversy, then Marlin Monroe’s death… and a lot more!

    Its really, really simple. The video isnt asking ANYONE to believe in ‘conspiracy theories’ it is asking the people of this country to ask themselves a few POTENT questions. Why did it take FIFTEEN HOURS to find the man and the passengers? Where did John’s flight log disappear to??, what happened to the black boxes? They were DAMAGED??….come on now lol…WHY was there a MISSING SEAT in the NTSB report? (the plane had 6 seats, 5 were found) why did one official say that they didn’t have the necessary information to begin a search until about 1pm saturday and YET, ANOTHER official says he ‘saw helicopters’ outside at about 10am that same day? Where was George Bush Sr AND his son? All you have to do is simply take into account what was going on that night, this brilliant film does it all. Hell, the author had to FIGHT to get the audio of Todd Bergun’s report (hmm…now WHY would you have to FIGHT to get a simple audio/video clip from a news station?).

  9. JonJon says:

    This is not very surprising at all when you start to be aware that history and what makes the news is controlled and written by the “winners” (those in power), and the fact that those powerful figures have found it so easy to manipulate 95% of the population to their will. Point in case you have some of the biggest criminals and war criminals holding executive power in politics, right now, in the US. Some very powerful right wing families like the Bush, who were working with the Nazi, the CIA, have been able to get to their ends, by killing opponents when necessary. JKF wanted to get rid of the CIA and all these clandestine organizations run by Skull And Bones people… For that he got shot and many others have died trying to fight them.
    I believe fighting them is not so much the answer since they have the means and the will to get rid of people. Rather people should focus on doing good around them, and the criminals in power will slowly fade out of the picture…
    JFK let the CIA do its things to a certain extent, cause he knew he couldn’t bring radical changes all at once without having him and his family threatened. Unfortunately that was already too much, as he often talked publicly about dismantling secret organizations that have no place in a real democracy.

  10. @BigBoss

    Yeah..that’s what I meant to highlight. That we need to question facts and circumstances and not take everything at face value! It’s not like I love controversies, but I do like to get all kinds of opinions on the same issue.


    I agree totally with what you’ve got to say. The internet is filled with lots of resources and we need to make ourselves aware, instead of being brain-washed by the stories published by the mainstream newspapers and other media, that are controlled by the people in power. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. 🙂

    Joseph P Kennedy Jr. Mysterious Plane Explosion

    By Alex J Hidell Jr.

    Joseph P Kennedy Jr. was being groomed by his most wealthy father Joe Kennedy Sr. to become the first Catholic U.S.A. President.

    Joseph Kennedy Jr.’s plane mysteriously exploded on August 12, 1944 while on a secret military mission that was kept coverup for over 60 years. It was later revealed that the mission was unnecessary. One interesting sidelight is that his plane was closely followed in a de Havilland Mosquito by Colonel Elliott Roosevelt, the son of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the President that conspired to permit the bombing of Pearl Harbor to force an isolationist majority into the European War Theatre…

    Joseph P Kennedy Jr. the man that Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the powers to be were determined to stop by all means possible from becoming future President of the U.S.A.

    Let’s look at what we know now.

    Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Joseph Kennedy Sr. were bitter enemies.

    What does that mean to be a bitter enemy of someone like Franklin Delano Roosevelt?

    Whom is Franklin Delano Roosevelt?

    Franklin Delano Roosevelt was a 32-33 degree Freemason.

    Overwhelming evidence from government documents clearly shows that FDR had advance knowledge of the Japanese Pearl Harbor attack, and allowed it to happen so that he could drag the US into World War II. (“Day of Deceit”. By Robert Stinnett).

    Skull and Bones Henry L Stinson was Secty. of War under FDR at time of Pearl Harbor attack.

    We can even trace Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s grandfather to the founder of Yale’s Skull and Bones.

    Warren Delano Roosevelt, the grandfather of Franklin Delano Roosevelt was a business partner of William Russell, the founder of Skull and Bones.

    William Russell made his fortune smuggling opium to China through Turkey. William Russell founded Skull and Bones at Yale University in 1832 after returning from Germany.

    Knowing what we know today is it impossible to conclude that the evil powers surrounding FDR, who permitted the death of over 3,000 U.S.A. Pearl Harbor military, would not permit the blowing up of Joseph P Kennedy Jr., the son of arch rival Joseph Kennedy Sr., whose sworn purpose was to install his son Joe into the Whitehouse?

    Isn’t it more than interesting that Colonel Elliott Roosevelt, the son of Franklin Delano Roosevelt was in a plane following Joseph P Kennedy Jr.’s plane before explosion?

    Elliott Roosevelt was also a Freemason.

    Franklin Delano Roosevelt participated in “Raising” of his son Elliott on Feb. 17, 1933, in Architect’s Lodge No. 519, New York, City. You can’t but wonder what all this means? Guess we will never know. You see it’s all secret. But what is not secret is that U.S. government is controlled and manipulated by an elitist cabal of men initiated into secret societies. The Kennedy masscres are clear evidence of their modus operandi.

    Many people believe the powers behind Franklin Delano Roosevelt were also behind the assassination of U.S. Senator Huey P Long – Share Our Wealth Rockefeller JP Morgan Banker-Basher and challenger to FDR’s presidential bid.

    Therefore, the U.S.A. evolved, thanks to New World Order FDR, from a country committed to not becoming involved in the European War Theatre into today’s military industrial global empire that Dwight Eisenhower warned us about.

    Knowing what we know today is it impossible to conclude that the powers surrounding such an evil man as Lyndon Johnson, another President sworn to the highest 32 degree of Freemasonry would not permit the assassination of John F Kennedy?

    And would not the same 32-33 degree secret partners like J Edgar Hoover, Gerald Ford and Earl Warren and Allen Dulles and Arlen Specter, and CIA Skull and Bones’ George Herbert Walker Bush et al have participated in the coverup?

    Knowing what we know today is it so hard to conclude that the evil powers surrounding Lyndon Johnson, who lied about the Gulf of Tonkin, and Israel’s False Flag attack upon the USS Liberty would not permit the assassinations of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. and the shooting of George Wallace, and the plane crash of Ted Kennedy to ease Richard Nixon into the Whitehouse?

    If you study the political rise of Richard Nixon, you will discover the $ hand of Skull and Bones Senator Prescott Bush pushing Nixon in as Vice President under Eisenhower, and obviously into Nixon’s assassination tainted Presidency.

    Knowing what we know today is it impossible to conclude that the powers surrounding such an evil man as Skull and Bones George W Bush would not pull off the “false flag”-“New Pearl Harbor” 9-11 as an inside job?

    And remember not only is George W Bush a member of Skull and Bones, but also his father ex CIA Director George Herbert Walker Bush, and yes even his grandfather Senator Prescott Bush were all members of Yale’s Skull and Bones.

    And so it goes.

    “The Navy’s informal board of review rejected the possibility of the pilot erroneously arming the circuitry early and instead, suspected jamming or a stray signal could have armed and detonated the payload..[3^ Renehan, Jr, Edward J (2002). The Kennedys at War, 1937-1945. New York: DoubleDay, 304. ISBN 978-0385501651.


    Joe Kennedy saw his chance to become a hero. He was eager to go, and was a very experienced pilot. The system to be used was to load a B-24 with explosives, using two pilots, and the installation of an arming pin to prevent accidental ignition of the explosives. The target was Mimoyecques, France. A P-38 weather plane reported acceptable conditions, it was a go. Kennedy and his co-pilot Bud Willy took off at 5:55PM. The safety pin had been properly installed in the arming unit. Fourteen other aircraft gathered in formation with the “flying bomb”. The lead plane was a B-17. There were two P-38s to accomplish aerial photography over the target. Also included were two Mosquito bombers, one to monitor weather, the other flown by Freemason Elliot Roosevelt, the son of the Freemason President of the United States. Another B-17 acted as a signal relay over the channel, with six P-51s as escort. The flying bomb was followed by two Lockheed Venturas which are believed to have been the “mother” guidance planes. This armada after hooking up in formation flew from Fersfield to Framingham, England, then to Beccles testing their RC equipment. Final test would be made with the B-24 flying alone on Radio Control. They flew from Beccles to Clacton, then took the final turn to head for the target. Both pilots were scheduled to bail out near Dover after preparing the plane to continue to the launch target guided by the mother plane. The actual flight plan called for a flyover Beccles but went further east than intended and flew over Blytheburgh. Kennedy made final preparations to set the plane on remote control. He removed the safety pin, and signaled O.K. with the code phrase “Stay Flush”. These would be his last words as the plane exploded at 6:20PM over Blytheburgh.


    Joseph Kennedy Jr. was to be the first tragedy to strike the Kennedy Family. Very few parts of the B-24 were found, no bodies.The official crash report indicated the cause of the accident was unknown. Once the safety pin was removed ignition could have been triggered by any aircraft making radio contact with the aircraft. Joe was awarded the Navy Cross posthumously. The Navy Cross was also awarded to his brother in the PT-109 incident. After the accident there was an immediate coverup of the entire accident which was already clouded in secrecy. No information was released for almost 60 years, even now no real disclosure. One point that is pretty hard to swallow, the whole truth is that the mission was pointless. Through a huge intelligence failure it was later disclosed that the target launch site had been severely damaged by RAF raids a week before. They had dropped massive “Tall Boy” bombs on it. So- the disaster was probably unnecessary. It is largely believed this is the reason behind the coverup. 20 years after the war ended the case was opened up, which only raised more questions. Many articles were published which claimed mostly erroneous information. Finally Elliot Roosevelt, son of FDR, called all of the reports ridiculous and complete nonsense. He was there and saw first hand what happened. In fact his plane was the closest. Kennedy’s plane was detonated by a stray radio signal from one of the following aircraft. Well, Colonel Elliott Roosevelt’s de Havilland Mosquito was the closest. Therefore is not his aircraft the most likely to have issued the stray radio signal to detonate Joseph P Kennedy’s plane? He witnessed the useless death of a potentially great American. Why all the secrecy-coverup for over 60 years? After all, the U.S. had tried 19 RC bomb test and none of them were successful. Was this mission hushed up and so secret because it was not necessary?

    And/or was this mission hushed up because Joseph P Kennedy Jr. was gunned down just like his brothers John F Kennedy and Robert Kennedy, and the plane crashes of Edward Ted Kennedy, and the May 13, 1948 plane crash of his sister Kathleen “Kick”” Kennedy, and let’s not forget the plane crash of John Kennedy Jr.?

    And so it goes.

    I would like an opportunity to share with you my experience with the corrupted, if you would, interwoven, and business incestuous relationship between the Pacific Maritime Association, the so-called “progressive” ILWU, and other elements of the “system” if you would. As a graduate of the Jesuit University of San Francisco(USF), I was duped, conned, manipulated, and lacking enough political savvy, naively became ensconced with major participants thereof.

    The use of forms of “legal” blackmail and economic deprivation to force someone to fulfill a political errand is not something to which anyone would want to be exposed. An example here, of which I write, could it be of the age-old business incestuous relationship of the Corporate/government and Military seeking influence within a prominent and economically critical Union? A Union, founded by the controversial Harry Bridges, whose hierarchy is cozier with the employer than those who work for a living, and those who believe in the ILWU’s reputation, are willing to admit. The “last great rust belt union” and an “injury to one is an injury to all” have long been a couple of descriptions of the ILWU. It really is “I got mine, you get yours.” Fat cats do not catch mice!

    When a person is used as a pawn it can become too damaging and revealing to be brought to light. You have to live with the constant attempts to control and discredit the pawn. If the cast of characters, players if you will, is exposed the picture is very clear. There are many corrupted players here from many directions. Disgusting.

    I have, as a whistleblower, been blacklisted, falsely arrested, and harassed for a long period of time. I do have corroborating evidence, particularly paperwork relative to my being registered as a longshoreman under the ILWU-PMA “permissive rule” Coast Labor Relations Committee(CLRC) Item 21-62 Item 2J for sons, and now of course daughters, of deceased longshoreman almost twenty years after my Father’s death, and after years of being repeatedly denied, in writing, as untimely under the same rule. My Father passed away in 1968, his plug number in Local 10 was 4075. To my knowledge an unprecedented situation of which few or none will speak or comment. An embarrassment to all parties concerned. If am able to communicate with someone who is reputedly objectively honest then I would look forward to the opportunity. There is much between the lines here. Hypocrisy abounds. My name is Joe Gianforte, formerly A book #8724 ILWU Local 10. This local is in the Oakland-San Francisco Bay Area. My telephone number is (510) 614-2763 and my E-mail is Thank you.

    When will a lone gunmen find their way to the BUshs? They are the most evil family to EVER exist. And yet, we as Americans put up with them. YES!, they are responsible for JFK, JFK Jr., the Bay of Pigs, RFK and 9/11. The quicker we realize this the quicker we can get those greedy commi bastards out of power. America, get your head out of your ass and make this family take responsibilty for the horendous actions they have committed to the USA! To the Bushs all I can is… I hope Satan makes you his bitch when you burn in hell!

  14. Wayne Beatty says:

    The circumstancial evidence seems fair, but you’d have to go a lot deeper into exposing the cia post hypnotic suggestion theory. Need direct evidence.

    The only problem is that Clinton was prez. Hillary was eyeballing the NY Senate seat, and young Kennedy was a shoe-in for that, indicating that he was interested in running. There was the motive…they couldn’t possibly beat Kennedy in a fair race-he had to be removed. The Clintons have quite a trail of dead people in their wake…people who knew stuff that could be damaging to them. Plane crashes seemed to be way too common in these deaths. There is the pattern. Bush was only running a campaign then, and simply decided to go quiet for a few days so as to not look bad by horning in on the Kennedy/wife’s family grief.

    Did Kennedy select the flight instructor for this flight or did the flight instructor select him? The former seems way more likely. How about the dive? Kennedy was a pretty buffed looking dude…seems like he’d be able to outwrestle most men with that yoke, even with a bum foot.

    Also need to find which flight instructor disappeared. Hard to bury everything…family, instructor records, schooling, friends, etc. Nobody’s got a list of possibilities?

    What political motive would anyone have in killing Lennon? The only thing he did is sing and write songs…none of which warrant silencing him.

    Yes, it does seem there is ruthless killing and clumsy covering up. And it surely seems like a lot of people are afraid of talking, and many who do talk find either death or severe warning. But who these people are and what affiliations and motives they have is pretty important to get right…you’d think. Just making wild accusations because of your leftist leanings doesn’t do this documentary justice. Jim Jones had a pretty powerful way with mind control/religion and he was a rabid leftist-a marxist no less. He even had the visiting democrat congressman and his contingent killed. The human is in a fallen state and many have their consciences seared. Bush is not one of them. He has a conscience. He knows, believes, respects and fears what comes after death-an accounting and judgement. He would never jeopardize that when he knows that. A lot of other people don’t know. Those are the people who would kill for gain and make people disappear for coverup.

    There is one vital function of government. Protect your country, your people, your interests. Islam has one purpose. Kill those who don’t conform to their religion. How do you compromise with that? You can kill only half of us but not all of us? Bush has done a pretty good job considering, we haven’t had any more attacks since 9-11. And the towers came down from planes. We saw them live. If Rummy knew about this, why would he be in the building when it got hit? He was personally helping with the rescue effort. We heard the cell calls from the passengers…all saying that some Arab men took over the planes. Those weren’t Manchurian candidates…they were murderers in the name of their religion, plain and simple.

    The Egyptian pilot may have been of this mindset, or maybe it was post-hypnotic, but why would he holler Allah Achbar as he’s plunging the plane into a dive? Sounds a little religious to me.

    Looking at plausible evidence and coming to logical conclusions is commendable. But after such a compelling presentation, the author wildly lurches the wrong way, and that way with no evidence. Stay consistent, you’ll be more believable.

  15. Your govt has lots of plans to control the population…consider this program called NAIS. (National animal Identification System)! it is being touted as a food safety/animal disease tracking program but it is anything but that. Look at the regulations and judge for yourself.

    Under NAIS, you register your premises with the government, even if you own even one animal, such as a horse, llama, goat, chicken, cattle, pet pot belly pig, parakeet, etc. (This step clouds title to private property.) All critters must be microchipped and all births, deaths and movements reported into a database. This costs time and money. (Factory farms do NOT have to do this, they get one lot number per group of animals. Any animal in that group could be diseased and who would know. And this is where the super bug came from! This group is mostly left alone under the plan. ) But if animal disease is suspected in an area, the USDA can depopulate a 6 mile radius (140 sq. miles of dead healthy animals.

    NAIS is a business plan designed to benefit corporate ag, but the rest of us are dragged in to work and fund the program, while corporate ag gets a free ride by having one lot number per groups of animals.

    I am not in the same business as big ag, but because I own horses, I am forced against my will to be part of the business plan with none of the benefits nor profits but bearing all the costs and risks. Over 90% of the speakers at the USDA NAIS listening sessions on youtube are telling why they oppose NAIS.

    Corporate ag has used over $150 million of our tax dollars to push NAIS so they can tell their potential global market what a great food safety program we have here in the US. But how does my telling the government when and where I ride my horse insure the Japanese are eating safe American raised beef?

    Control the food and you control the people~Under NAIS those who grow food on the local level will be severly controlled/curtailed. Livestock owners will be under closer surveillance than illegals, drug dealers, convicted six offenders/child molesters. Currently in the USA, only convicted six offenders/child molesters have to register their premises and file movement reports. see for more info

    Analysis of John Hankey Video – “Assassination of JFK jr.” I have tried to email you @ – no joy. You were on the right track – sort of. Plan A was most definitely “MK ULTRA” on a copilot who was invited along, but did not go on the flight. “Plan B “was an EMP weapon fired from a boat.

    There was testimony about this before NTSB officials but it was covered up.

    A government investigator mentioned the following to me as “fact” he said “we were told to back off” and “we feared for our lives”. I have since found the quote below. It is the colsest you will get to the actual report.

    “This person was asked to “take a look” at something–an “internal” report by/from the FAA on the circumstances of that event. In particular this report was concerned with the CONDITION of the aircraft.

    First, the plane in question flown by Mr. John Kennedy was outfitted with every possible bell and whistle available; as well as the most up-to-date communications devices, emergency beacons, autopilot, instruments, gauges, AND Global Positioning technology.

    Said FAA report is in MAJOR contradiction to the tone and content of the PUBLICLY–and belatedly–released NTSB report.

    Said FAA report indicates that the aircraft was subjected to a MASSIVE electromagnetic “event” of some kind or other. EVERY SINGLE lightbulb in the aircraft was blown; filaments burned out. ALL integrated circuitry and communications devices were MELTED, fused, fried and toasted in every sense of the word. The voice recorder system was in fact non-functional anyway. Kennedy had forgotten to put in a 9-volt battery. Chalk one SMALL point up to the “operator error” crowd. Electronic sensing units in fuel and engine areas were also sizzled.

    Is this “report” genuine? The real thing? I have no idea, but the person I talked with who saw and held it believes it to be. This person has been a near-perfect source for me in the past.”

    From Wayne Madsen Report “From Deep Inside The Washington Beltway”

    August 12, 2009 — JFK Jr.’s PlaneCrash Was Originally Treated As Murder Investigation
    By Wayne Madsen

    WMR has learned from a source who was a close friend of the late John F. Kennedy, Jr. that the FBI originally treated the July 16, 1999, crash of his Piper Saratoga in the waters off Martha’ Vineyard as a murder investigation. Kennedy, his wife Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, and his sister-in-law Lauren Bessette were killed when their plane plummeted into the Atlantic en route from Caldwell Airport in Essex County, New Jersey to Martha’s Vineyard. Kennedy’s wife was also three month’s pregnant with a boy.

    Kennedy was to drop off Lauren Bessette at Martha’s Vineyard before flying to Hyannisport to attend his cousin Rory’s wedding.

    According to the Kennedy friend, the son of the late president and publisher of “George” magazine, was about ready to announce his run for the U.S. Senate from New York. Kennedy was acutely aware of his vulnerability and hired on a personal security team just prior to his announcing for the Senate. Kennedy also decided, unlike all previous flights, not to file a flight plan at Caldwell. Instead, Kennedy, instead of filing an FAA flight plan, provided his own “flight following” by having a Kennedy friend waiting at the Martha’s Vineyard airport. When the plane was overdue the friend notified Woods Hole Coast Guard Station which, in turn, notified the FAA and other agencies.

    According to the source, Kennedy, contrary to press reports, decided not to fly over open ocean from Montauk at the eastern tip of Long Island to the Vineyard but instead hugged the Connecticut and Rhode Island coast lines until flying direct to the island. Kennedy did not identify his ultimate destination on the radio – he said that6 he was flying “east of Teterboro.”

    Fearing for his safety, Kennedy thought it best to be within sight of the coastline. According to the Kennedy friend, Kennedy told him his plans prior to his departure. Kennedy had also arranged for all the onboard bags, including his own and that of his family, to be hand searched by security personnel at Caldwell prior to departure. Kennedy decided not to take along a co-pilot because he felt his flight was somewhat of a risk. Kennedy’s friend said Kennedy was always concerned about the “underdog” and did not want to put a co-pilot in any potential danger. In any event, Kennedy felt confident of his and his family’s security since he had retained a security firm to provide for his protection prior to his Senate run announcement.

    Media reports at the time of the disappearance suggested that the weather near Martha’s Vineyard was “hazy” and Kennedy may have become disoriented, causing the crash. However, the Kennedy friend states that this was not the case and cites the fact that visibility around the Vineyard was clear at 9:41 pm when the plane disappeared from the sky. The following is from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) report on the crash and quotes the Martha’s Vineyard tower manager:

    “During an interview, the tower manager stated that no actions were taken to augment or edit the ASOS during his shift. He also stated the following:

    ‘The visibility, present weather, and sky condition at the approximate time of the accident was probably a little better than what was being reported. I say this because I remember aircraft on visual approaches saying they had the airport in sight between 10 and 12 miles out. I do recall being able to see those aircraft and I do remember seeing the stars out that night…To the best of my knowledge, the ASOS was working as advertised that day with no reported problems or systems log errors.'”
    ASOS is the Automated Surface Observation System. Media reports claimed that visibility was around 2 miles with haze, a far cry from what the tower manager at Martha’s Vineyard stated to the NTSB.
    The weather report around the time of the crash also indicated clear weather in the area:

    “2053…Clear at or below 12,000 feet; visibility 8 miles; winds 250 degrees at 7 knots; temperature 23 degrees C; dewpoint 19 degrees C; altimeter 30.09 inches of Hg.

    2153…Clear at or below 12,000 feet; visibility 10 miles; winds 240 degrees at 10 knots, gusts to 15 knots; temperature 24 degrees C; dewpoint 18 degrees C; altimeter 30.10 inches of Hg”

    Some twelve minutes after Kennedy’s plane crashing, visibility around Martha’s Vineyard was reported at 10 miles, described as near perfect conditions by professional pilots.

    There were also questions raised about Kennedy’s piloting skills. However, he had logged in 310 hours. The NTSB report also reported Kennedy’s most recent flight record:

    “In the 15 months before the accident, the pilot had flown about 35 flight legs either to or from the Essex County/Teterboro, New Jersey, area and the Martha’s Vineyard/Hyannis, Massachusetts, area. The pilot flew over 17 of these legs without a CFI [Certified Flight Instructor] on board, including at least 5 at night. The pilot’s last known flight in the accident airplane without a CFI on board was on May 28, 1999.”

    Kennedy’s most recent three legs were with a CFI on board and along the same route taken on July 16 but significant rain and a 800 foot ceiling. Kennedy had, according to his friend, been flying for 17 years. Before Kennedy flew the Piper Saratoga he flew a Cessna 182.
    There were also media reports that Kennedy was impeded by a foot cast from an accident he suffered while parasailing. However, according to Kennedy’s friend, the cast had aready been removed when Kennedy took to the skies on July 16.

    The Kennedy friend also stated that he learned from an FBI agent, as well as a Secret Service agent, who were friends of the Kennedy family that the FBI originally treated their investigation of the plane crash as a possible murder. Kennedy no longer enjoyed Secret Service protection as a protected person, according to the friend.

    FBI agents, after the crash, fanned out across convenience and other stores in the Caldwell, New Jersey area and asked if anyone had recently purchased epoxy. According to the French magazine, France Dimanche, a pilot at the Caldwell airport had reported he heard a “weird noise” coming from Kennedy’s plane on takeoff. The FBI theorized that a whistle had been glued on the aft section of the plane in order to emit a distinct, unique, and high-pitched noise for the benefit of someone on the ground who wanted to correctly identify the plane when it descended for landing at Martha’s Vineyard.
    The FBI asked pilots if a whistle attached to the rear of a plane such as Kennedy’s could be heard from the cockpit. The answer from all the pilots was no because the sound would only be heard by those on the ground as the plane passed overhead while descending to an audible range. There was also a belief that if the whistle had been fashioned from a water-soluble material, such as plaster-of-paris, it would have dissolved in the seawater.

    The FBI discovered that there was “suspicious boating activity” in an area of Martha’s Vineyard where Kennedy’s plane was descending to 2000 feet for its final approach to the airport. The “suspicious” boaters claimed to be fishing for striped bass. However, when the FBI asked local fishermen to corroborate the suspicious boaters’ story, they stated that the particular area where they were discovered was not an area where Atlantic striped bass would be found. In fact, salt water striped bass do not start to run in Massachusetts coastal waters in great numbers until the autumn.
    The FBI also found an unusual number of extra batteries in the fishermens’ boat. The FBI was suspicious of the boat’s contents because after the plane’s wreckage was discovered, investigators found, according to Kennedy’s friend, that every light bulb, including that in the emergency flashlight, had been blown out on the plane and every circuit board, including those in the engine sensors and other electronic equipment, had been literally “melted.” FBI agents on the scene preliminarily concluded that a “massive electromagnetic event” caused Kennedy’s plane to crash. FBI agents also found that the cockpit voice recorder (CVR) had its battery removed, possibly before the flight. Every simulation the FBI conducted of a plane in Kennedy’s situation, with all lights off at night and with only the engine and the vacuum pump-operated attitude indicator functioning, resulted in the same result: the plane crashing into the water.

    Before the FBI could begin examining the ocean floor for any “special equipment” that may have been thrown overboard from the fishing boat, their “murder” investigation was abruptly called off by FBI headquarters in Washington.

    Kennedy was preparing to re-tool “George” magazine to take on investigations of a number of major stories, not least of which was the actual story behind the assassination of his father in Dallas on November 22, 1963. According to an article in Germany’s Bild am Sonntag on August 1, 1999, Kennedy was also preparing to meet with the deputy chief of Mossad, Amiran Levine, at the Oak Room in Manhattan’s Plaza Hotel the Wednesday after Kennedy was killed. The subject was the assassination of Israel’s Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in 1995 and that Rabin was assassinated by one of his body guards and not the convicted murderer Yigal Amir.

    Kennedy’s friend said the real priority of the “George” publisher was to re-open the case of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and the role that the father of the all-but-announced Republican presidential candidate for the upcoming 2000 election — George W. Bush — played in the assassination. Apparently, some documents had come into Kennedy’s possession that pointed to George H. W. Bush as a prime participant, on behalf of the CIA, in President Kennedy’s murder.
    On a 1997 visit to see Cuban President Fidel Castro in Havana for an interview for “George,” the Cuban President reportedly told Kennedy a number of details about those behind his father’s assassination. The occasion of Kennedy Jr.’s visit was the 35th anniversary of the Cuban missile crisis between his father and Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev. According to Kennedy’s friend, Castro confided to Kennedy that a mafia ring headed up by Meyer Lansky, who lost his Cuban gambling holdings to Castro’s revolution, and a Canadian Zionist veteran of Israel’s Haganah army, Louis Bloomfield, were the primary planners of the Dallas “hit” on his father. Jack Ruby, who killed the alleged assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, worked directly for Lansky’s organization, Kennedy was told.

    Although the information on J.F.K. Jr.’s plans to more thoroughly examine the facts of his father’s assassination came from a single source — a friend of the late Kennedy Jr. — this editor is in a unique position to corroborate part of the story.

    On Saturday, July 17, 1999, I was driving to a hotel in Crystal City, Virginia to proctor a certification examination for a group of computer security professionals. Listening to the radio, the bulletin came across that John F. Kennedy Jr.’s plane was missing. The news came as a body blow. In a few weeks, I was scheduled to meet with Kennedy at his magazine’s offices in Washington, DC to discuss hiring on as one of a few investigative journalists Kennedy wanted to dig deep into a number of cases, but most importantly that of his father’s assassination. Kennedy had made initial contact with me via a colleague with The Village Voice. I signaled my readiness to do whatever Kennedy wanted because, first of all, I have always been an admirer of the Kennedy family, and after twelve years under Bush presidencies, that admiration has developed into a loyalty for which I make no apologies.

    My past discussions with President Kennedy’s press secretary Pierre Salinger and Texas Governor John Connally led me to believe that the young Kennedy was on to the story of a lifetime — a lifetime that for Kennedy Jr. would be tragically snuffed out early.

    After I heard the news report about Kennedy’s plane and knowing of his plans, I knew deep down that he was gone and that the renewed investigation of America’s worst crime of the 20th century was dead along with him. Little did I realize at the time, but I heard the news about Kennedy as I was driving along Route 110 past the side of the Pentagon where the worst crime of the 21st century would take place under the administration of George W. Bush.

    In the end, Hillary Clinton was elected to the U.S. Senate seat that Kennedy was to run for. Kennedy’s sister, Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg, would see her own hopes to be appointed to the Senate seat dashed when, according to John H. Kennedy Jr.s’ friend, Senator Charles Schumer and Barack Obama chief of staff Rahm Emanuel conspired to have New York Governor David Paterson appoint a virtual unknown, Kirsten Gillibrand, to the seat. Caroline Kennedy was instead offered a consolation prize of the post of U.S. ambassador to the Vatican, a position that Schumer and Emanuel knew in advance she would never accept.

    It saddens me when I hear people say I don’t believe in conspiracy theories. They say this because they have a need to go along with the crowd-the old peer pressure trick. The corporate media has used this human need to mind control Americans into following their lead.

    A conspiracy is simply when two or more people plan to commit an illegal act. Now what’s so weird or unusual about that. It probably happens a hundred times a day in the US alone. It is a fact that conspiracies were so common in the US that a special law had to be enacted called the Rico Act to prosecute such criminals. So the media laughs about conspiracies and criticizes those with such beliefs and many Americans are pressured into going along with the crowd. Such widespread ignorance is a sign the corporate media has done their job.

    Others might argue that the media is only focusing upon government conspiracies. Government conspiracies are not unusual either. It is well known that the CIA has been overthrowing governments and murdering their leaders for years. And they are the prime suspects in the JFK, RFK and MLK murders. It is also well known that the CIA controls the corporate media and has for decades through Project Mockingbird. In fact former CIA chief, William Colby, said the CIA controls every significant US media figure. Hence, such Americans who spout such anti-conspiracy nonsense as a matter of course are simply illustrating how effective media brain washing has been.

  20. Hey there superb blog! Does running a blog such as this require a large
    amount of work? I have no expertise in programming however I had been
    hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyways, if you have any suggestions or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off subject nevertheless I simply wanted to ask.
