The Reason JFK Jr Was MurderedFrom John Hankey 9-12-7
http://rense.com/general78/reas.htm

I've been engaging in an email correspondence with a health food store owner in Utah named True Ott, regarding John Kennedy Jr.'s final days. Ott says that John Jr. was murdered because he had come into possession, through Ott, of thorough and conclusive proof of George Bush Sr.'s direct involvement in the assassination of JFK. Ott says John was preparing to publish the information. The story Ott tells is incredible, and I certainly did not believe it the first time I heard it. However,...I've investigated and found that Ott is well known and respected nationally in the health food community. Ott is also listed on the Sierra Club and NRDC websites for the activism he claims brought him to the attention of George magazine. He has an important reputation as a respected environmental and health activist that is not helped by spreading ridiculous stories; and he assures me he wouldn't jeopardize his reputation like this if the story weren't true. You be your own judge as you read, below, what he said.

It has occurred to me, since speaking to Ott, that the day John died, he told his staff that "as long as I am alive, this magazine will publish." When I first read this story, this seemed to me an over-the- top statement from someone who had not shown a life-and-death commitment to the magazine up to that point. Ott's stunning story solves this and other important mysteries. I'll finish this letter with the latest part of my correspondence with him.

Best wishes,

John


True writes as follows:

John:

I will never forget the phone call on the 4th of July weekend, 1999 - the phone call from John Jr. thanking me profusely for the information and the file. When he told me that a grand jury was to be convened and Bush was going to be indicted for the murder of his father, I tell you, I had goose bumps. For your review, here is an excerpt of what I wrote 3 years ago in my unpublished manuscript "Free at Last" concerning the event.

John, please understand that I appreciate your efforts - more than words can say. You can only imagine how thrilled I was to see your videos - for you were declaring what I had known as facts for many years - it is difficult to know the truth about national politics and power brokers when the majority of people (and the major media) all are complicit by their ignorance and willingness to accept the status quo. As Edmund Burke said: "The only thing needed for evil to triumph, is for good men to do nothing!"

In addition to the murder of John Sr., keep in mind the file also contained evidence concerning CIA orders for contract murders for witnesses of the event. There were over ten "collateral assassinations", one of which was the Dallas PD detective that was the focus of the DVD I sent you (Two Men in Dallas). Did you get that ok?

The cabal in charge of this nation is so massive and so powerful, that none dare attempt to expose it. As my D.C. attorney has counseled me, the best we can hope for is a sort of "detente" - a live and let live attitude. I don't like it, but it is the reality of life at this time. The cabal is composed of powerful Jewish banking families, with Mormon, Jesuit and Freemason allies. My attorney has flat out told me that publicizing "the file" will greatly shift the balance of "detente" - and more innocents will die. In short, the cabal doesn't give a damn if we know, only if we attempt to do something meaningful about it.

In answer to your question - it was about a week after John's plane went down. I had received about 8 calls from major news publications, (U.S. News and World Report, Time, Wall Street Journal, etc.) asking about reports that I had provided a file to John - "Did I, and what did the file contain?". I denied all, and made no comment. It was at this time that George Magazine called me as well - I think it was the editor Richard, though I am not completely certain. He told me the story was "dead" and the magazine was folding. He also told me that all evidence went with John - and that their offices had been burgled. You are right of course, it doesn't make sense that there were not any backup files - apparently they were taken as well. Again, this was a time of EXTREME CONCERN for me and my family - and I don't remember a lot of the specific details clearly. I don't mind telling you that I indeed feared for my life for at least a month. Please understand that I don't believe I am paranoid - but when one verifies that ones phones have indeed been tapped, it makes one a bit concerned.

All my best to you my friend. Keep searching for all truth. (We need a copy of the Inquirer story.)

True Ott


The " Las Vegas " Files are Examined In 1995, I was going through my safe and file cabinets, and came across the sealed, manila envelope that had been placed in my trust by my financial planning client a decade earlier. I had completely forgotten about it. I called his home to see what he wanted me to do with it. His wife informed me that Mr. C. had suffered a stroke a year earlier, and was confined to a nursing home. He was in his 70's now, and was not doing very well.

In short, she didn't know anything about the "file" and suggested that I could just dispose of it.

I tossed it into the trash bin, but then thought that I should at least see what all the fuss was about. In many ways, I wish I had never opened it. It was a true "Pandora's Box", and I was shocked to read its contents. It was "file #5" of a group of 7 files called the "Gemstone" files. I don't know what the other six files contained, but this one was a literal ball-buster. It was the FULL STORY of the CIA-planned and executed contract "hit" of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, president of the United States . It was full of very complete specifics, including such things as photostats of cancelled checks, travel vouchers, orders on CIA letterhead, personnel "lists" of participants, disposition of witnesses and evidence, etc. The problem was, I recognized the names of many of the key men who participated in the assassination, as well as the massive cover-up that followed.

These were not all Jewish organized crime bosses, some were men linked to my LDS church authorities and some were nationally prominent politicians in my beloved Republican Party! The file was extremely damning towards George HW Bush, who in 1963 was the CIA head in Dallas . The obvious involvement of the FBI and Dallas PD, and their subsequent squelching of information as outlined in the file made me physically sick. There was no person in Federal Law Enforcement that I could trust with this information, that is, IF IT WAS INDEED LEGITIMATE! At first, I refused to believe it could be legitimate at all. My paradigm of perception refused to believe it could possibly be factual. However, I could not understand WHY my "client" would have such a file, and WHY would he want it sent to Beverly Hills CA, as well as a notice sent to Hank Greenspan of the Las Vegas Sun newspaper, if my client happened to "die suspiciously?" Like I said, it was a definite "pandora's box", one that I soon realized was too big for me. I kept thinking I ought to shred its contents, but I couldn't bring myself to do so.

The File Goes Home to John John.

During the summer of 1998, I was involved in actively protesting the expansion of Circle 4 Farm's gigantic hog factory farm into Iron County . My grass-roots citizen's organization CRSA (Citizens for Responsible and Sustainable Agriculture) had received a bit of national notoriety, with a number of AP wire stories circulating the nation. One such story caught the eye of a publication called George Magazine. The editor and staff contacted me and scheduled an appointment to meet and review my story.

The editor of George Magazine flew into Cedar City in his private plane to meet me, and shoot a photo spread. We spent the entire day, a Saturday, together. At the end of the day, at a local steak house, we sat down for a concluding meal.

Over salad, I had to confess to the editor that I had never even heard of, much less read a copy of George Magazine until he had called me. He reached into his briefcase and produced a copy. Looking at it, I was surprised to see that it was owned and founded by John Kennedy Jr.

I asked him about "John, and his politics." I was told that John was a real "champion of the under-dog" and that was why they were producing the story on CRSA and me.

I commented: "I believe that my image of John is like most Americans. The enduring image of little `John-John' courageously stepping forward and giving his best salute as the caisson carrying his father's body slowly rolled by. Tell me, does John accept the `official Warren Commission' account of the assassination, or does he think there was more to it? At this late date, does it even matter?"

The editor nodded and said: "Of course he doesn't accept the Warren Commission, but there is not a lot he, or anyone else can do about it! And I guarantee you, it DOES INDEED matter, at least to him. It is one of his major goals in life to find out the Truth!"

I replied: "Has he ever heard of something called the `Gemstone Files'?" With that, the air became electrified. The editor laid down his salad fork and said: "What do YOU know about the `Gemstone'?"

"Oh, it just might be that I have a copy of file # 5. Does that interest you?" I casually volunteered. "You can't be serious! Are you serious? Don't kid about something like that! Where did you get it?" he almost screamed.

The dinner was immediately over, even though our steaks were just coming in from the kitchen. We had them placed into containers to take with us. The editor had to SEE the infamous Gemstone immediately. He couldn't wait until the meal was finished.

It was late on a Saturday night in Cedar City, Utah. I handed him the file, and he offered to compensate me for it. I refused. I asked him only one thing in return; if the information proved out to be genuine, that I needed to know. I just wanted justice to be served, and the guilty parties prosecuted.

I was awakened the next morning at 5:00. John's editor explained that he had been up all night reading the file. He had called John directly, and he was told to fly it immediately back to John. John had again offered to compensate me up to $10,000 for the lead. He felt it was that good. I politely refused, and gently reminded him of my earlier request. I just wanted to know if the information was genuine. To me, that would be payment enough.

The rest of 1998 went by quickly. The national political stage was being set. It looked like George W. Bush was seeking to secure the nomination to run against Al Gore.

On the 5th of July, 1999, my home phone rang. Joan answered it and said: "True, it's for you." As I answered it, a very polite masculine voice on the other end said: "Hello, True Ott, do you have a moment to speak? This is John Kennedy calling!"

I immediately asked him to hold while I went to the privacy of my home office to take his call. After a few minutes of small talk, he told me: "Well, I understand that you want to know what I think of your file. I want you to know that I have spent over six figures in private investigators to verify its contents. I can say to you without hesitation that its contents are indeed factual. As a matter of fact, because of this file, a federal grand jury will be convening within the next few weeks. It is my opinion, as well as my attorneys, that this federal grand jury will pass down an indictment against George Herbert Walker Bush for conspiracy to commit murder against my father, and will also indict others as the evidence unfolds. If George W. thinks he can run for dogcatcher after this grand jury convenes and his father indicted, he is sorely mistaken."

I was thrilled, yet deeply saddened by John's disclosures to me. I asked him how he felt about what he was about to do. Did he understand that it would shake American politics, especially the Republican Party to its very foundation?

He replied: "Yes, I do realize the gravity of the story and my accusations, but the guilty must be brought to justice."

I pressed: "But Mr. Kennedy, how do YOU feel?"

The phone went silent for a minute or two. Then John replied: "I feel like a mighty weight has been lifted from my shoulders. For the first time in my life, I feel empowered. I feel my Father's spirit beside me on this, and finally, I can exorcise a few demons from my life." He was definitely emotional, and very close to tears. I knew that I was. I was a part of American history. I had helped a brother's search for truth.

I warned him to be careful, that such actions were potentially very dangerous. He agreed, and said that he was "taking every precaution."

Then, in a quiet voice, he asked me for my banking information. He wished to wire $50K to my account. I told him thanks, but no thanks. "Give it to charity," I said, "I don't think it right to accept money for such terrible information. I am totally satisfied knowing that the file went to the very person that needed it the very most! Above all, John, please BE CAREFUL!"

John Kennedy Jr. thanked me profusely, and said that he wished there were more people in America like True Ott. He said that some day, he would somehow return the favor. I liked that. It was good to have made a friend such as John Kennedy.

A little over two weeks later, on July 16, 1999, John Kennedy Jr., along with his wife and her sister, were killed in a plane crash en route to Hyannisport for a family wedding. My new friend was gone, and the guilty involved in BOTH murders have still not been punished. I know the truth, however. There is no doubt whatsoever, why John was killed. It was NOT an accident!

Hey True!

I appreciate your willingness to correspond on this difficult stuff. You raised a couple of issues.

I'm not trying to do better than John. I'm not him. I'm not in the same game or the same league. I am trying to do the best I know how. Which for me at this moment is telling the most important truth the best way I know how. Which, among other things, means telling the story as clearly and as persuasively as I can. I think your part of the story is powerful, important, and fascinating. But my experience in telling it to others is that, without the file, it is not credible.

Another issue, it seems to me, is that if John died for trying to tell that story, to avenge his death I would like to give the fullest meaning to his life. That means presenting that file.

I think my video shows that it is not necessary to have the file to tell the story of the murder of JFK Sr. I think it is necessary to tell the final chapter in the death of JFK Jr., because that chapter is not credible without it.

A separate issue, altogether, is that I had no idea you had spoken to anyone from George after the plane went down. I would very very much like to know all the detail there is about that conversation: Who called who? Why? How long after the plane crash? To say "the file went down with John" seems an obvious euphemism. How could they not have multiple copies? that is, how could several investigators and an entire magazine staff be working on it without each having copies of the materials they were investigating?

I'm surprised and grateful that you contacted me at all. I'm surprised and grateful that you gave me permission to discuss the story with others. You can't be surprised that I would try as hard as I can to get all the information necessary to tell the story well.

thanks sincerely

John

Yes, the "original" file was/is copies of docs (bank statements, travel vouchers, cancelled checks, letters from Bush on Zapata letterheads, etc.). The mob had targeted Cuba as their gaming "mecca" - following the Bay of Pigs debacle, they moved with plan B - Las Vegas.

It was one of the George office staff who told me the file went down with John - (Don't remember if it was Richard or someone else - only they were da--ed nervous.)

Here's the kicker:

Even with "THE FILE", John Jr. couldn't get it done. What makes you think you or I could do any better??????? All my best,

Dear True

I'm grateful that you called me at all. But it sounds like I'm better off to shut my mouth about what you've told me, since, like many true stories, it's so incredible and the other evidence is there in plain sight anyway. This new book, "Brothers," further corroborates all the CIA-trained Cubans and mafia material in JFK II. But just looking at the face across from me at the table as I'm telling the story, to finish with "oh yeah, the files not available" just rips the carpet out from under any credibility the story had. Oh well. The story stands on the other evidence.

Since you brought it up, I'm very interested to know, please, who told you the original file went down in the plane. I assumed that the "original" was just photocopies of documents in any case. Were there original documents in the file?

John

The original file went down with John's plane (at least that is what I was told).

The copied file sent to my D.C. attorney is simply not available - my immediate family is at risk - giving it to others would violate the "detente" agreement - columnist Jack Anderson evidently saw the file 5 or 6 years ago, and even he refused to open pandora's box. Best to let sleeping dogs lie - the truth is that the crime cartel running this country is simply too big and too powerful for the common man to fight.

I reiterate what I told you on the phone ------- You figured it out ----- the "Gemstone" file only gives complete confirmation to what you produced.

True

(Perhaps you should look at the Inquirer article, and see if you can track down their "sources" for corroboration.)

Of course it's the truth, but the truth is often incredible, important truth almost always so. So, I have to find corroboration to make the story credible. I told my closest friend. He's puzzled and incredulous, like this: if the story's true, where's the file? I didn't have a good answer for that.

"A. True Ott PhD" wrote:

John:

Trust me, I have NO REASON to make such a sordid story up. Of course it is the truth.

Jones was a tenured Mormon professor at BYU. When I talked to him two years ago to warn him of the dangers inherent in "speaking out" he assured me he was fine.

Last summer Bush, Cheney, et. al. visited Salt Lake City for the VFW convention.

Bush and Cheney meet privately for over one hour with LDS Church President Hinckley and Counselor Monson as soon as they arrived in

SLC.


The PRESS is told the subject matter of the meeting was completely private (strange they didn't just make some subject up - i.e. P.R. or just polite protocol conversation).

The following week, Jones is fired from BYU and is now personna non grata among faithful Mormons.

Go figure!

As far as sharing my story - there are no limits except the truth.

Just tell it like it is.

Hey True

You know they've separated him from BYU. The office number gives and error message. The lab phone just rings. I've sent out emails to the 2 addresses.

By the way, I thought I'd share a couple of thoughts that wandered through my mind.

1) There was never another issue of George. This makes no sense from any point of view. When one issue is on the news stands, the next 3 are well in the works. A tribute issue would have sold millions of copies. Yours is the only plausible explanation for this anomaly.

2) Richard Blow says that on the day he died, he told his staff in a meeting, "As long as I'm alive, you have a job at George magazine." That's an extraordinary statement. What could possibly have moved him to make such a commitment? Again, yours is the only plausible explanation. He set the dangers of the task before them and offered to let anyone leave who wanted to. And then was utterly committed to those who stayed.

So, I believe your story. I'd like to share it with other people. I'd like to invite you to tell me what you'd like me to not say.

Bush Fulfills His Grandfather's Dream

Bush Fulfills His Grandfather's Dream
http://www.americanchronicle.com/articles/66505

David Swanson June 27, 2008

It's remarkably common for a grandson to take up his grandfather's major
project. This occurred to me when I read recently of Thor Heyerdahl's
grandson taking up his mission to cross the Pacific on a raft. But what
really struck me was the BBC story aired on July 23rd, 2007, documenting
President George W. Bush's grandfather's involvement in a 1933 plot to
overthrow the U.S. government and install a fascist dictatorship. I knew the
story, but had not considered the possibility that the grandson was trying
to accomplish what his grandfather had failed to achieve.


Prescott Sheldon Bush (1895 to 1972) attended Yale University and joined the
secret society known as Skull and Bones. Prescott is widely reported to have
stolen the skull of Native American leader Geronimo. As far as I know, this
has not actually been confirmed. In fact, Prescott seems to have had a habit
of making things up. He sent letters home from World War I claiming he'd
received medals for heroism. After the letters were printed in newspapers,
he had to retract his claims.


If this does not yet sound like the life of a George W. Bush ancestor, try
this on for size: Prescott Bush's early business efforts tended to fail. He
married the daughter of a very rich man named George Herbert Walker (the guy
with the compound at Kennebunkport, Maine, that now belongs to the Bush
family, and the origin of Dubya's middle initial). Walker installed Prescott
Bush as an executive in Thyssen and Flick. From then on, Prescott's business
dealings went better, and he entered politics.


Now, the name Thyssen comes from a German named Fritz Thyssen, major
financial backer of the rise of Adolph Hitler. Thyssen was referred to in
the New York Herald-Tribune as "Hitler's Angel." During the 1930s and early
1940s, and even as late as 1951, Prescott Bush was involved in business
dealings with Thyssen, and was inevitably aware of both Thyssen's political
activities and the fact that the companies involved were financially
benefiting the nation of Germany. In addition, the companies Prescott Bush
profited from included one engaged in mining operations in Poland using
slave labor from Auschwitz. Two former slave laborers have sued the U.S.
government and the heirs of Prescott Bush for $40 billion.


Until the United States entered World War II it was legal for Americans to
do business with Germany, but in late 1942 Prescott Bush's businesses
interests were seized under the Trading with the Enemy Act. Among those
businesses involved was the Hamburg America Lines, for which Prescott Bush
served as a manager. A Congressional committee, in a report called the
McCormack-Dickstein Report, found that Hamburg America Lines had offered
free passage to Germany for journalists willing to write favorably about the
Nazis, and had brought Nazi sympathizers to America. (Is this starting to
remind anyone of our current president's relationship to the freedom of the
press?)


The McCormack-Dickstein Committee was established to investigate a homegrown
American fascist plot hatched in 1933. Here's how the BBC promoted its
recent story:


"Document uncovers details of a planned coup in the USA in 1933 by
right-wing American businessmen. The coup was aimed at toppling President
Franklin D Roosevelt with the help of half-a-million war veterans. The
plotters, who were alleged to involve some of the most famous families in
America, (owners of Heinz, Birds Eye, Goodtea, Maxwell Hse & George Bush´s
Grandfather, Prescott) believed that their country should adopt the policies
of Hitler and Mussolini to beat the great depression. Mike Thomson
investigates why so little is known about this biggest ever peacetime threat
to American democracy."





Actually, if you listen to the 30-minute BBC story, there is not one word of
so much as speculation as to why this story is so little known. I think a
clue to the answer can be found by looking into why this BBC report has not
led to any U.S. media outlets picking up the story this week.


The BBC report provides a good account of the basic story. Some of the
wealthiest men in America approached Marine Corps Major General Smedley
Butler, beloved of many World War I veterans, many of them embittered by the
government's treatment of them. Prescott Bush's group asked Butler to lead
500,000 veterans in a take-over of Washington and the White House. Butler
refused and recounted the affair to the congressional committee. His account
was corroborated in part by a number of witnesses, and the committee
concluded that the plot was real. But the names of wealthy backers of the
plot were blacked out in the committee's records, and nobody was prosecuted.
According to the BBC, President Roosevelt cut a deal. He refrained from
prosecuting some of the wealthiest men in America for treason. They agreed
to end Wall Street's opposition to the New Deal.


Clearly the lack of accountability in Washington, D.C., did not begin with
Nancy Pelosi taking Dubya's impeachment off the table, or with Congress'
decision to avoid impeachment for President Ronald Reagan (a decision that
arguably played a large role in installing Prescott Bush's son George H.W.
Bush as president), or with the failure to investigate the apparent deal
that George H.W. Bush and others made with Iran to not release American
hostages until Reagan was made president, or with the failure to prosecute
Richard Nixon after he resigned. Lack of accountability is a proud tradition
in our nation's capital. Or maybe I should say our former nation's capital.
I don't recognize the place anymore, and I credit that to George W. Bush's
efforts to fulfill his grandfather's dream using far subtler and more
effective means than a military coup.


Bush the grandson took office through a highly fraudulent election that he
nonetheless lost. The Supreme Court blocked a recount of the vote and
installed Dubya.


Prescott's grandson proceeded to weaken or eliminate most of the Bill of
Rights in the name of protection from a dark foreign enemy. He even tossed
out habeas corpus. The grandson of Prescott, that dreamer of the 1930s,
established with very little resistance that the U.S. government can kidnap,
detain indefinitely on no charge, torture, and murder. The United States
under Prescott Bush's grandson adopted policies that heretofore had been
considered only Nazi policies, most strikingly the willingness to openly
plan and engage in aggressive wars on other nations.


At the same time, Dubya has accomplished a huge transfer of wealth within
the United States from the rest of us to the extremely wealthy. He's also
effected a major privatization of public operations, including the military.
And he's kept tight control over the media.


Dubya has given himself the power to rewrite all laws with signing
statements. He's established that intentionally misleading the Congress
about the need for a war is not a crime that carries any penalty. He's given
himself the right (just as Hitler did) to open anyone's mail. He's created
illegal spying programs and then proposed to legalize them. Prescott would
be so proud!


The current President Bush has accomplished much more smoothly than his
grandfather could have imagined a feat that was one of the goals of
Prescott's gang, namely the elimination of Congress.

A recently declassified federal report bolsters a long-simmering Cold War theory that uranium was illegally shipped from an Armstrong County plant in 1965 to Israel to support its nuclear arms efforts.

The once-secret report by the General Accounting Office reveals the FBI initially refused to investigate the disappearance of 206 pounds of weapons-grade uranium-235 from the Nuclear Materials and Equipment Corp. -- known as NUMEC -- in Apollo.

That refusal led to widespread speculation the uranium, enough to build five nuclear weapons, was diverted to Israel with covert U.S. government assistance, the report states.

For decades, the fate of the missing NUMEC uranium has been the stuff of Western Pennsylvania legend.

Stories were spun -- some based on fact, some based purely on conjecture -- and books were penned about how the uranium vanished.

The release of this once top-secret report gives the first official glimpse into the government's handling of "The Apollo Affair."

In the late 1970s, the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission reported there was "no evidence" to conclude the uranium was shipped to Israel. But the declassified report states that GAO investigators thought the commission's findings should have been "reconsidered."

Dr. Victor Gilinsky, a commissioner with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in the 1980s, said although the GAO report is not a "smoking gun," it could lead to the conclusion that the material ended up in Israel.

"It does look as if the government didn't want any information coming out on that," said Gilinsky, who lives in Southern California and works as an energy consultant. "It looked like it was taken to Israel, but exactly what for, we just don't know."

Uranium-235 can be used in making nuclear weapons because of its ability to sustain the fission chain reaction of a nuclear explosion. The Department of Energy sold the material to NUMEC for research purposes.

The beginning

Pittsburgh chemist Zalman Shapiro, 90, of Oakland founded NUMEC in the early 1960s on the site of the former Apollo Steel Co. to reprocess spent nuclear fuel rods.

Shapiro did not respond to requests for comment about the declassified report, but in 1978 he told the House Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs that no material was diverted from NUMEC.

"I have no knowledge or information concerning any such diversion," he said. "Furthermore, I am not aware of any factual basis for the repeated allegations that 'material unaccounted for' at NUMEC was caused by an illegal diversion."

Attorney Hadrian Katz, a partner in the firm of Arnold & Porter in Washington, D.C., said he used to work for Shapiro in the 1970s and said Shapiro is a loyal American and never diverted any uranium to Israel.

"Nobody thought Zal Shapiro ever diverted uranium," Katz said. "Nobody who knew him thought he was involved in a diversion. There's nothing there. There was no diversion. Zal made real contributions to nuclear research. Zal is a great American."

A staunch supporter of Israel, Shapiro, whose father was an Orthodox rabbi who lost family in the Holocaust, was a purchasing agent for the Israel Defense Ministry, the report states.

Shapiro, an active inventor who received a patent from the government last year for a process to make artificial diamonds, maintained the uranium was "lost" in the processing system. Traces of enriched uranium were discovered in cracks and crevices of the plant and in air filters, according to the report.

Skeptics doubted Shapiro's theory, and in 1966, NUMEC paid the Energy Department $1.1 million for the missing uranium, the report states. Energy Department inspectors said the amount of missing uranium actually went well beyond 206 pounds, according to the report.

In the 1960s, inspectors found "significant deficiencies" in how the uranium was stored, protected and tracked at NUMEC, the report stated. The deficiencies were so serious that officials recommended the government stop providing uranium to the company. But the shipments were not halted, the report states.

Inspectors said NUMEC had the largest highly enriched uranium inventory loss of all U.S. commercial sites, with a 590-pound loss reported before 1968 and 170 pounds after that year, according to the GAO findings.

The investigation

Energy officials asked the FBI to investigate NUMEC, but the bureau refused until 13 years later, when then-President Gerald Ford ordered an investigation, the report indicates.

Gilinsky said that when he was at the regulatory commission, the Justice Department wrote to the Ford administration that people in government were "accessories after the fact."

Gilinsky said the uranium could have been used to make nuclear weapons, but had other possible uses.

He said the Israelis could have used the material at the nation's best-known reactor at Dimona to produce plutonium-239 and tritium, other materials used to power nuclear and/or thermonuclear weapons. This method would have enabled Israeli scientists to produce more weapons than if they had used the enriched uranium directly.

For years, Israel has not officially admitted to having nuclear weapons, but it is widely believed the country has actively developed a nuclear arsenal for some time.

Dennis Gormley, of the Matthew B. Ridgway Center for International Studies at the University of Pittsburgh, said he's certain Israel is a nuclear power. The question is whether its nuclear program was spawned by the missing uranium from NUMEC, he said.

"No question whatsoever that Israel has the bomb," Gormley said. "It's a 100-percent certainty."

He said efforts to trace the missing material during the Carter administration were stymied by problems such as the Iranian hostage crisis and the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.

"Carter didn't need any more on his plate," Gormley said.

The FBI and CIA blocked efforts to release the GAO report in 1978, the report states. Even today, portions were blacked out for security reasons.

The haunting legacy

NUMEC's legacy has haunted the region for decades.

Nearby residents endured 14 years of litigation seeking damages for cancer and other illnesses they contend were caused by radiation exposure.

Federal investigators said NUMEC workers likely faced dangers from radiation at the plant, but could not determine the level of exposure, according to a government report.

Atlantic Richfield acquired NUMEC in 1967, and Babcock & Wilcox bought it in 1971. The plant closed in 1983 and was razed.

Interesting YouTube on Edgar Bronfman. They're talking about the son of
major bootlegger, Sam Bronfman, who, according to this web site
http://www.jfkmontreal.com/bloomfield.htm , may well have been the
greatest moving force behind the JFK assassination. The key connection
between S. Bronfman and the assassination is Louis Bloomfield.
