The assassination of Ron Brown
World Net Daily ^ | 9/29/2004 | Jack Cashill

Posted on 05/14/2009 6:39:35 PM PDT by jdfromny

On April 4, 1996, the subject of my radio show in Kansas City was Commerce Secretary, Ron Brown. He and 34 others had died the day before when their Air Force plane crashed into a Croatian mountainside.

Not one to shy from exploitation of a tragedy, President Clinton was busily profaning the memory of Martin Luther King – who had been killed on April 4, 1968 – by comparing King's mission to Brown's.

What Clinton did not say was that Brown had gone to Croatia to broker a sweetheart deal between the neo-fascist strongman who ran Croatia, Franjo Tudjman, and Enron Corporation. This was all part of the Clintons' desperate drive to raise money for their 1996 re-election campaign.

More than a few callers argued that the Clintons had the plane destroyed. I dismissed these arguments out of hand. I believed then, and believe now, that an American president would never do such a thing.

When I began my investigation for my book, "Ron Brown's Body," I thought, however, that I might very well find another link in the Mega Fix chain – that is, the cover-up of a terrorist incident for the sake of political advantage.

Brown's flight did leave Bosnia, a Muslim country swarming with mujahideen. This flight came just six months after the Dayton accords and the insertion of American troops – an unpopular move. I figured that if a terrorist missile shot Brown's plane out of the sky, or a hijacker flew it into the mountain, the Clinton White House would have good cause to conceal this fact.

But I was wrong. The evidence does not support a terrorist scenario. Here is what we know for sure about Ron Brown's last days.

“The Enron executives take their own plane.”

For all the good it did them. They went down ‘in flames’ in due time. ;)

Bubba scammed Enron on a gasline deal in India as well.

It’s a wonder that all this has stayed pretty much unremarked and unreported.

First, the Democrats have to get Pelosi to take a plane ride. Secondly, they have to convince other Democrats to get on board with her.

I don't think it will work. Best if they simply plan on planting a bomb in the Well of the House ~ they certainly know enough mad bombers!

Yes, I subscribe to a few tinfoil theories.
I guarantee Nancy is in no danger. She is drawing negative attention away from others and toward her own self.

Politically, she is safe in her district.
About the only thing she could do to get voted out would be to embrace Christianity.

One little known fact about the Ron Brown affair is that Hillary was in the area just one week before Brown’s ill-fated plane arrived in town. Could she have arranged the whole thing?

To protect his son Michael from prison, Ron Brown threatens to expose the White House's yet unrevealed Asian fund-raising scheme, in which Brown played a major role.

Wasn't that the fund-raising scheme known as China Gate that involved arranging a transfer of ballistic missile technology to China in exchange for about $300k in campaign contributions?

Ron Brown. One of the many, many odd deaths that are a part of the Clinton history. I don't see how it relates to Pelosi.

As long as SanFranNan hasn't po'ed the Clintons, she's probably ok...at least for now. She's only dissed the CIA and blamed the rest on Bush. What's the problem?

Enron spent a fortune on a project in India. Bubba was the facilitator. In the end India reneged on their part of the bag and that actually was the final loss that brought Enron down.

Bubba made several trips to India trying to get them to change their minds. To no avail.

They apparently are backing her now. But the longer they back her and it turns out Cheney of all people was right and she knew and approved, then what credibility do they have as the supposed new values party (that would never “torture”)?

She blows their case out of the water and makes them now look like the hypocrites that they are. And hopefully costs them some seats in 2010.

That is Jack's biggest fault: he's a bit gullible and naive about the base nature of man.

"what’s the link of India and bubba ...the scam?"

Clinton forced Enron to build a power plant in India that they never got paid for. That was what brought Enron down, and it was deliberate. Bill is ruthless.

And the perfectly round hole in Browns scull from the autopsy photo’s didn’t exactly dispel the rumors that he was dead before the plane hit the ground.

I followed the link in the post and ended up reading the Mega Fix, posted in 2004. Found an interesting quote, "Once arrested, McVeigh and Nichols served as poster boys for the natural progression of the "Republican revolution." If, however, they proved to be mere "lily whites" – that is, stooges recruited by Islamic terrorists to take the fall – they would lose their political value. "

Looks like the DNC continues the "Right Wing" drum beat using the politicians in Homeland Security and Pelosi as well to brand Veterans etc. as potential terrorists. Same tactics as under Clinton.

Some of my friends at the time stated Ron Brown was two weeks from a Federal Indictment. So I think the WH was involved beyond this glossed over version.

Here is the account from Alamo-girl's website:

Shelley Kelly

Accident - Shelley Kelly, Survived Brown Plane Crash - died hours later (Stewardess) (4)

http://mwilson.hypermart.net/views/brown/linger.html Christopher Ruddy and Hugh Sprunt Pittsburgh Tribune-Review 11/24/97 "...*The survivor. Air Force Tech. Sgt. Shelley Kelly, a stewardess, survived the crash for some four hours. Kelly and another stewardess had been seated in a jumpseat at the very rear of the 737. That area was found basically intact after the crash. According to the Air Force, she received first aid from Croatian rescuers but died on the way to a nearby hospital. Her autopsy report states that Kelly died of a broken neck..."

Freeper Earn Your Vote 8/27/99 "…Cogswell said that 'depending on who you talked to' Kelly was found either walking around or with a deep cut on her leg. Janoski, in her interview with Phelan, mentioned that there were several false stories about Kelly. Janoski seemed to believe that there was nothing suspicious about her death…."

9/12/96 Dornan's comments re Shelly Kelly--Congressional Record "Here is a document, a political document. Looks like a Federal document, but it is not. I do not even know the group that sent it out, but it says `Murder in the First Degree: Interim Report on the Death of commerce Secretary Ron Brown and 34 Other citizens'. And in the first paragraph, and I am going to check this, as the chairman of an Armed Services subcommittee and Committee on National Security, it says all 35 people were dead at the crash except for a stewardess. That is not the right title. They are sergeant attendants. Shelly Kelly, who was riding in the tail, sustained only minor cuts and bruises; that she was well enough to get out as sole survivor of the 35 on the plane; that she climbed on the helicopter itself, it says here. This goes on for 37 pages. And that she died on the helicopter mysteriously. I flew four times with Sergeant Shelly Kelly. Her husband is an Air Force sergeant. Two children. And in the PX, where we went to get some supplies, some toiletries for a trip into Bosnia with Shelly Kelly on this very same airplane, she was in the line ahead of me. Intelligent, strikingly professional, good looking lady sergeant. And I said why are you buying those wine bottles; is my crew partying tonight? Oh, no. I always bring home two wine bottles from everywhere I go as air mobility command member, Congressman. And she said my husband does the same. He is up at Ramstein. And when I get home, we have one bottle of wine at dinner, and then we save the other one. We have quite a collection to give to our children. Well, Shelly Kelly is in heaven now, Mr. Speaker, and her husband is left with that wine bottle collection from all around the world. These two excellent servants of the people in the Air Mobility Command. And I am going to have to find out if there is any truth that she survived that crash, less than a month after CODEL members, the gentleman from Alabama, Sonny Callahan, the gentleman from Arizona, Bob Stump, myself, and four or five other Members flew four times on that aircraft, from Aviano to Zagreb to Tuzla and other flights in that area just March of this year." …"

(April 3, 1996) - letter to Congress James W Nugent, Pres The Wall Street Underground – "…Crash site, 7:20 P.M.: Four hours and 20 minutes after the crash, the first Croatian Special Forces search party arrives on the scene and finds only Ms. Kelly surviving. They call for a helicopter to evacuate her to the hospital. When it arrives, she is able to get aboard without assistance from the medics. But Kelly never completes the short hop. She dies enroute. According to multiple reports given to journalist/editor Joe L. Jordan, an autopsy later reveals a neat three-inch incision over her main femoral artery. It also shows that the incision came at least three hours after all her other cuts and bruises…. Further autopsies will probably not happen. At this writing, Clinton has ordered the cremation of all victims. It's hard to perform autopsies on ashes….."

Sorry for your loss.

Someday...someday...both Clintons need to be brought to the bar of justice.

Real justice.

The truth about Waco, Vince Foster, the OKC bombing,about TWA-800,The sale of MIRV secrets to the Chinese, the taking of Chinese Army cash for the ‘96 campaign has to come out someday.

With the Clintons there is one universal truth—things are NEVER what they appear to be.

I think the Barrett Report, if we could ever get it released, would be the key to unravelling their carefully constructed crimes.
