Not so sure about restrictions. Uranium (non enriched) can be bought online and so can heavy water. That's what makes this AHR technology so accessible.

Re: [377] TO ALL - PLEASE KEEP IT PEACEFUL! [In reply to] Can't Post

You can buy heavy water online? Wow. I did not know this and I hardly wish to think about it.

August 1, 2011 Facebook post by Sheridan Peterson, responding to a link:

Quote:
'I was investigate(d) by the FBI IN 2002 at the Silvercrest Senior Apartments in Santa Rosa, California. The agents were certain that I WAS D.B. (Cooper) I had been an active sky diver at Issaquah, Washington earning an instructor's licence. This is where D.B. got his chutes. I was a tech writer at Boeing where they assumed I knew all about the 727. I was unemployed in Vietnam at the time that D. B. made the heist, so they assume...' (etc)

(Peterson then posts a link to an article just pre-Marla, info by Ann Dietrich, where she announces a 'new suspect' that actually refers to Marla Cooper, although this was not announced until after the tenth of August or so. He must have seen the early article and thought they were referring to him.)

"Didnt Tom conclude that pure titanium (as found on the tie) was not used in the aircraft industry, just alloys? Does anyone have info that contradicts that conclusion?"

My answer is the experimental work going on in the Lab in the 9-101 building that Sheridans office was working on Flame Spraying Titanium onto surfaces that the SST would possibly use on its leading edges. Pure Titanium could have been one of the materials used and it could have been like a power or a shaving particle.

377 You say:
"A tie would have been worn by managers or engineers in metalworking plants. The spiral aluminum chips are only made using metalworking machinery. Since they were found on a tie, that suggests he was either an engineer or manager who went out on the shop floor. Only managers and engineers wore ties in metalworking plants at that time."

I say that Secretaries and tie wearing "Technical Writers" (such as Sheridan Peterson) also passed right buy the tub skids containing all scrap Titanium and Aluminum in all forms due to the experimental work being done for the SST airplane. Not just Managers and Engineers.

Blevens: You say:
"He also can't be placed in the USA at the time of the hijacking, and every single resource I've dug up on him indicates he WAS in Nepal at the time.
Distance from Kathmandu, Nepal to Portland, OR: 7,100 miles."

I say that being in Nepal was part of Sheridan's "Perfect Alibi" !!! However, by air and a flight from Katmandu to Bangcock and on to Portland or Seattle is a little over a one day trip in those days.
Is it amazing that Sheridan was so far away from the crime and possibly delivering one of his children at just the right time. I have described how he could have kept his passport clean of the skyjacking travel with the use of a fake or replacement passport. Showing the clean passport to the FBI would almost prove to them he was in Nepal at the time. Very clever guy to pull-off the perfect crime with the perfect alibi.

And, no rational way to sort any info from anybody out!

10,000,000,000 posts later on Dropzone and we have

Pretty good for a guy with a dry sense of humor!

Been a busy day here! Going here and going there and SO many phone calls. Between Doctors, the State of Fl ID law,
long distance research calls (thank Heavens for unlimited long distance), the thread, old friends and apprehending a very large Feral Cat.

The feral cat was after the sardines and animal rescue picked him up with-in an hour.

That was one LARGE cat! He was feral and not someone's pet. When the Animal control got here she immediately put on very heavy gloves and released him from my trap to her smaller trap. Then she handed me 2 cans of CAT food. She told me cat food catches MORE armadillos than sardines or bananas or apples & it is cheaper.

Birds have set the traps off - but, escape capture - then they have Squalking sesson sitting on the fence talking & complaining about it. They do fret! I SWEAR those birds and the posters on the thread really get their feathers ruffled over a little tidbit of information or morsel of food.

Besides, there are more qualified people here to do an interview, ones with more familiarity on the case, and Rataczak is in the phone book. Yes, he's listed.

The reason you probably haven't heard anything from the local media on the KC report to the FBI is because (as I said yesterday) I decided not to send it to them, at least for now.

No big deal. You deserved a straight answer on both questions.

Goin high tech [In reply to] Can't Post

My skydiving HUD is arriving tomoorow. A head up display (mounted in goggles) that displays GPS info and baro altitude. If only Cooper had one of these in those sunglass frames.

Can't wait to fly it.

When I first started solo skydiving I didn't even wear an altimeter. I was good at eyeballing altitude by looking at cars on the DZ.

Now I use every electronic gadget made for jumpers. Something beeps at me if I go low. Another records all my jump data automatically. Another reports my position course altitude ground speed heart rate and blood oxygen level to mountaintop ham radio repeaters which automatically upload the info to the Internet site http://www.aprs.fi

I even have a "pinger" watch to broadcast a distress signal on 121.5 MHz if needed.

I love electronic gadgets. Can you tell?

Re: [georger] SO Much to do - So Little Time [In reply to] Can't Post

I renewed my drivers license today and when you see a picture of yourself - it is not what you see in the mirror.

So little time and so much to do!
I didn't realized I had gotten SO OLD and that I look SO BAD!.

I am fighting hard very hard to finish this - and I am screaming and no one hears me. I can't do what the FBI could do with the flick of their wrist and their fingers with all of the SHIT they have accessible to them. NO one hears! NO one really listens! NO one especially the FBI or the Government want this solve!

No one wants to believe the truth has been sitting infront of them all of this time. It will be so much easier when the OLD BITCH is gone!

She's not gone yet! NOT yet DAMIT! NOT yet! If I had access to the FBI files - I could find the loose ends they refuse to look at.
The connections Weber had NOT one of the BASTARDS has ever even offered to look up.

SO don't tell me this is NOT a DAMN GOVERNMENT cover-up! THAT or they have to protect their ASS because they missed the simple damn CLUES. THAT is because their investigative abilities are SO fragmented!

Yea you can bet your ASS I am pissed tonight. IT was so DAMN simple - connect Weber to known jumpers ( jumpers who fell under the auspices considered acceptable ), but jumpers never the less and ex-cons and the 60's and it is ALL there! Just finding ONE person still alive was ALL it took. Just connecting Duane to ONE of these persons is ALL it took. Do you think they would do it?

ONE has to wonder WHY didn't the FBI just explain to the woman WHY her husband could not be COOPER. THE answer is that THEY COULD not explain WHY he could not be Cooper or one who had knowledge of the damn JUMP!

Leaving a widow out there with NO explanantions is just not acceptable! Duane knew Paperleges Petersen - so why did the FBI not acknowledge this - pehaps because the operation was so DAMN secret the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT couldn't even let the FBI know!

Presumably the Federal Government above the FBI didn't even tell them. There is NO other WAY the FBI could miss all of this shit! NONE! That or they need to let old woman do their investigative work for them!

I AM FED UP and NOW I REALIZE I won't FINISH this without HELP and need HELP BIG TIME.

I realized HOW OLD I AM TODAY and I am too old to finish this,..it is NOT FAIR - NOT FAIR at all!

All of you just go to HELL and DON't Come back ..If I had the money and could have gone to see the people - but I didn't. Every time I find one of them they have just died!

None of you ever heard me talk like this - JUST F--- The FBI and I hope someone will heat up cores of 2 inch irons and run them up their ASSES and they die or be physically impaired ny the damage these rods will do to the bowels.

MAD as HELL!..

Re: [skyjack71] SO Much to do - So Little Time [In reply to] Can't Post

I actually have some sympathy for you. No kidding. But if you want to get to the truth, relying strictly on Dropzone isn't going to do it.

You will have to incorporate real (non-internet-only) people in your search for the truth. Someone who will take notes. Someone to organize the notes. A press release to the media. I don't know...Unimpressed

Whether I was right or wrong, I still had to go out into the real world to gather info. If you can't do that on your own, it's time to gather yourself a Jo Team.

Forget the drivers' license picture. EVERYONE looks bad in those. Smile

Yikes Jo.

So you don't like the FBI eh? We've clearly underestimated the depth of your rage.

Sure they've made mistakes. That doesn't prove a cover up.
They want the case solved in my opinion. Any agent who solves it will be a celebrity. This is their ONLY unsolved skyjack.

The FBI has no obligation to prove to you that Duane couldn't be DBC. That's not their mission. Your status as an ailing widow seeking closure
just doesn't matter to them.

As for the DL picture don't sweat it. On the Internet looks don't matter anyway. We saw your younger pix Jo and you were very good looking. You are still that same person, just a bit older. I'll bet you still look good.

The FBI actually spent some serious time and effort on Duane. They didn't ignore you. They ruled Duane out and you disagree, violently it appears.

They have ignored many like you who claim they know DBCs ID. You got more attention than most.

Freudian slip?

Bill Rataczak will talk to almost anyone. The reason he won't take your calls is because you accused him of being complicit in the hijacking, when in reality he was a hero. We're talking about a crippled old man who was hit by a concrete truck while riding his bike. Easy to pick on someone like that. If he were still with the airline, both he and the airline would have you in court for slander.

Jo,

Sorry, but unlike Blevins, I don't have a damn bit of sympathy for you.

Your FBI rant indicates that you expect them to chase after every fairey tale you dream up. Your lengthy posts, one of which by actual count consisted of more than 20 "what if" type questions from which you actually arrived at a solid conclusion (or so you claimed) are beyond belief.

After 18 years or so of hitting your head against the wall without a single positive result, anyone not certifiably nuts would at least start considering the possibility that Duane Weber was not Cooper. But not you.

Judging from your past actions, I predict that you will go to your grave still blaming all your problems and the world's problems on the FBI.

However, the FBI is NOT responsible for global warming. You can take my word for that and you heard it here on DZ.com first.

Soldier on!

377

They did NOT investigate things in real time. The FBI did NOT check-out the individuals I told them about - Tommy, Tony, a man in Ft. Lauderdale, Horan and the list goes on.

They contacted a former employer who did NOT want to admit they hired Ex-cons - KNOWINGLY! The other employer which I think knowingly hired ex-cons - they didn't contact either (this company was involved in politics and with Unions and Presidents of the US) with most of this activities in the 60's.

The did NOT check out Ed Horan at all. Find his background and you find Duane's background in WA and ID! The most important information I provided them with they didn't check. If they did they would have found he was "ghost" - a man with no past just like Duane Weber's missing yrs and the other yrs the FBI did NOT explore - NOT at all.

Now any explorations done on many of the individuals in Duane's life amounts to digging up graves. In 1996 most of them were still alive.

I sent a picture of Ed to someone who knew him pretty good - even went to his funeral.
I posted the Anglin pic and a pic of Ed. I did NOT mention the younger person was some one else. They Made NO COMMENT other than I had included a pic of Ed. NO mention of the Anglin pic - I just threw it into a photo album of pics of Duane and Ed and myself with Duane and with my last husband. I did NOT tell them about Cooper and I did not mention WHY I put this pic of what should be a perfect stranger into the mix.

The man has been in the hospital so they may not have had the opportunity to view the photos in their entirety.

Someone mentioned hiring someone to do the background and that is ridiculous. Can anyone even imagine what it would cost to have someone find only what I and others have found. They would have to dig up graves - chasing ghosts of the past. In 1996 many of the individuals were still alive.

By the way 377 - when I started this in 1996 I was not in bad health - I did have a serious auto accident in 2000 and that started the decline. Some of what I deal with now is a result of the limits on my activites and things that just do not show up for a few yrs and other things that are part of the aging process.

Chasing the Ghosts [In reply to] Can't Post

It is not the job of the FBI to check Duane's possible associates, especially when you have so little to go on. For example, even the FBI might have trouble narrowing someone down based simply on a name. Maybe you check Qwest.com and discover there are 500 people in the USA with that same name.

Trouble is, you don't give anyone enough to go on.

If you are going to name associates, the FBI needs a context. Was this person a close friend? Where were they at the time of the crime? Is there any other evidence besides it was someone Duane knew?

You are chasing ghosts here. This is the 21st century, and truth is, you can find out quite a bit about people these days on the internet. You can drop twenty bucks on US Search for a full report and this can give you additional leads, possible relatives, all their previous addresses, even criminal convictions. This is why private investigators today subscribe to these services and pay a monthly fee. Because they know this is the best way to locate people these days effectively, and obtain information on them that leads to MORE information.

How can you expect to find out ANYTHING on ANYBODY via the limited number of people who participate on this thread?

Quote:
'Duane knew a guy named John Doe, maybe in Denver, maybe in Portland. Probably in 1968...'

This kind of information is completely useless. I still say you need a shortened version of your evidence. A report on everything you know, condensed to a modestly-sized document that gets to the point. Using this, you might be able to get interest...and help. Throwing out this or that like shots in the dark will only result in more darkness.

I GAVE the FBI what I had when they interviewed me in 1996. They made copies. Then when THEY didn't do anything BUT I did NOT know THIS until Mar of 2000.

NOTE:

The FBI never ever expected me to go public! All it took was ONE jerk of an agent who was supposedly the agent of record - acknowledging they knew absolutely nothing about Weber and what little they did was all screwed up.

It was NOT until 2000 they started to scramble because I went public - then all they wanted to do was make JO WEBER go away!

Re: [skyjack71] Chasing the Ghosts [In reply to] Can't Post

In 1996 I gave the FBI names and last known locations and employer if I had it. I revealed all I knew about the individuals from Duane's past.

I find out YRS later they NEVER spoke to any of these people. ALL are deceased now - what is left is a few work associates. The FBI did NOT investigate certain individuals because I am sure their records indicated a HANDS OFF on a couple of them.

There was NO excuse in their NOT finding Ed Horan - NONE what-so-ever! I told them this man was Duane's connection to WA. Sadly - Ed was deceased in 2000 when I found the FBI had done NOTHING! Absolutely nothing!

I knew from his prior heath in 1968 he would in all probablitlity have been deceased by 2000.

So I have been chasing Ghost ever since. It MAKES NO DIFFERENCE what I provide the FBI - it automatically goes to file 13.

I informed the FBI of others individuals I was aware of, also.

Maybe I should takea certain individuals up on their movie offers - and make the FBI look REALLY REALLY bad with a MOVIE! YOU think?

Hell, I would be dead by the time it was done - and if I let the individuals do it who approached me several yrs ago - it would develope Duane Weber as a Covert CIA and heaven only knows what. The movie would probably make a HERO out of Weber. That is NOT what this world needs right now!

The image they wanted to portray is exactly why I did NOT sign on the dotted line. If they were going to do the story - it had to be the truth (but, of course) NO ONE knows the TRUTH...and I refused to let them use me and Weber for exploitation.

The OFFERs were yrs ago. YOU see there is a lot to JO WEBER you guys know nothing about.
How many of you would have refused to sign such a contract?
If it was about the money I would be in high cotton right now, but for me it has always been the truth! You can bet anything I might have signed had stipulations and protected my rights.

See what I mean - I don't tell you guys everything. NOW, I have the feeling of urgency to finish this....and SOON! So if they still want to do the movie I am game...they can go ahead and finish the damn script! I am tired of HOLDING out for the FBI to finish their job.

OPTION contracts are a dime a dozen and anyone who has done a Cooper book has been offered an Option. Anyone associated with any high profile crime is approached with an Option Contract. I had more than one Option Contract offer, but I refused them. Option contract can hang round for ys - they are JUST encase contracts! A script in most cases is NOT written in connection with an option contract...

Wonder how many - you (Blevins) and Gray turned down Option Contracts? Bet you a dollar - Marla signed an option contract and I know that the guy who wrote the other Cooper book prior to yours signed one. (Can't remember the man's name of the title of his book right now).

The one you guys know little about:
A movie about Coffet was actually in production according to Mr. S.(the writer) when BLACK vehicles showed up on the 5th day of production, dramatically telling them - not to move forward because it was "A matter of National Security".

I have never decided if this man was full of malarky or not - so much of his story was very very close to what I knew...so I never shunned this man or dissed him.
I just listened and we have had a lot of interesting conversations over the yrs. He is getting up in age like myself (I have not spoke with him in a long long time so he too may be deceased).

Perhaps my story like the one he tried to tell will forever be buried within the muck of the bureacy and what I like to call a "staged" investigation of Cooper by the FBI..

Everything the FBI has done regarding Cooper appears to have been staged including the FIASCO with Marla! DID the FBI actually think they could "sell" her Uncle to the public! Evidently the FBI was unaware of the Cooper Sleuths and researchers that frequent this thread and the Cooper savy individuals who follow this case.
More likely if was Marla manipulating a very gulible FBI agent. How Sad!Unsure

Jo, Do you actually believe what you have written above?

If the Cooper hijacking was "A Matter of National Security", do you honestly think the FBI would still be posting online information about that case?

Do you remember that it was an FBI agent who provided most, if not all, of the Cooper information presented on this thread and that he also posted here for quite a while?

Do you remember that it was the FBI that provided Tom Kaye and his crew with access to their actual files on the Cooper case?

For someone who claims to be interested only in the "truth" about Duane Weber and has no interest in a book, you are extremely well versed in how the book publishing industry and the movie industry operates.

Re: [Robert99] Chasing the Ghosts [In reply to] Can't Post

Well, I'm not against the idea of a film on Weber, if only because the media guys can sometimes do research better than the FBI. I suppose if you bring in others to help do the story you might find out something you didn't know previously. Marisa Kagan, for example, was not bad as breaking some of the lies and finding out crap about Bernie Geestman. Like when he called his sister and told her to retract everything, and then keep her mouth shut. (She did neither)

Note: I modified the Newsvine article about Cooperland a bit. Georger's real name was removed, and I added a phrase showing he has done solid research on the case.
