Flap over the Letters

Tom Colbert is certainly getting his money's worth of publicity with his flap about the FBI releasing the so-called "I Knew From the Start that I Would Never Be Caught" letter. I have received numerous phone calls and emails from friends asking if I've heard of the news. Then today when I came home from the dentist there was a phone message from the "Morning Dose" cable TV show wanting a SKYPE interview. So we talked.

But Snowmman found this letter several years ago - at the NY Times and LA Times - and Colbert has expanded that to include the Washington Post and Seattle Times. I agree, this letter and all the others are bogus.

But what is most interesting about the letters is Letter #3 and the action of Al Di.

For those interested, all of these issues are discussed in my book, pages 255-267. I wonder when Colbert is gonna read it.

Agreed. The letter doesn't prove anything. Who knows how many bogus letters were sent to various places. Only a few that have been made public. For all we know, it's just another bogus letter from someone wanting to toy with the authorities. Besides, the whole "only 14 months to live" part sort of works against Colbert's theory about Rackstraw, who is still going strong after 46 years.

Colbert says the letter proves there was an FBI conspiracy to cover up and protect Cooper.  And I thought Tom Kaye was hasty in jumping to conclusions.  The letter proves nothing, period.  Colbert's claim about Rackstraw -- well the FBI gave him maybe 10 seconds before telling him nada, plus the ridiculous claim about the Cooper goods found across the road from Tina Bar, at Vancouver Lake's man-made island.  Colbert is passing himself off as the Cooper Mystery Go-To guy now, but his claims so far have been really out there, some even ridiculous.  Yes, his dogged determination to get files released via the FOIA is commendable, but his claims --  well, I don't know...... The letter proves nothing, he says it proves everything.  Really?  Ridiculous.

Yet Colbert seems unwilling to come here and defend his claims, and engage in meaningful discussion with us here.  Why not?  I can guess.... 

Why 14 months, by the way?  People who have not much time to live say 6 months, a year -- it's usually rounded off to a nice round number.  What terminal disease makes it possible to predict death so precisely?  Suicide?  Not only that, the letter just doesn't sound right to me, it seems contrived - to be sure all the points that need to be covered are covered.

Big News Breaking

Chris Ingalls, a KING 5 TV reporter in Seattle who has been following the DB Cooper story for decades and has been featured in a number of books and telecasts on Cooper, offers a fantastic news bit today:

In it he conducts a first-ever exclusive interview with one of the fuel truck drivers, giving us an expanded and interesting insight on what was going on the first few moments that 305 was on the ground at Sea-Tac. Alice and Flo got a ride back to NWO ops in his truck! I didn't know that and always wondered how they got there since no one mentions them on the passenger bus.

Plus, GG is back in the game and has opened up his files to the general pubic. No more bs apparently about joining some sleuthing club at True.Ink, etc. GG also claims that the 302s that he is making available are the originals. I didn't know that either.

To access these files, go to KING 5 website and follow their prompts, or go to True.Ink and follow that pathway.

Meyer, 14 months would put his death at around Inauguration Day for the 1972 presidential election. Probably just some wiseass who didn't like Nixon and thought he/she knew everything, like how Cooper got away and who would win in '72.

Happy Thanksgiving and Merry DB Cooper Eve my friends!!!

May the start of holiday season bring you each joy, friendship, warmth, and a randomly discovering of a small sack of roughly $196,000 in "negotiatable US currency!"

Or, someone who worked as a covert operative whose program/job would be terminated with the new Nixon regime, and had a grudge because of it.

Apology to Tom Colbert

I would like to retract my recent comments here where I called Colbert a charlatan. Although I strongly disagree with many of his techniques and conclusions in his DB Cooper research, he is not a charlatan.

I think attacking the data vs the person is the best policy..
