The Reason JFK Jr
From John Hankey
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.
True writes as follows:
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what I wrote 3 years ago in my unpublished manuscript "Free at Last"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.)
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
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
"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!

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.

It was one of the George office staff who told me the

Here's the kicker:

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?
"A. True Ott PhD" wrote:
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.
(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.

Trust me, I have NO REASON to make such a sordid story

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
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.
As far as sharing my story - there are no limits except
Just tell it like it is.

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
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.
