The "Murder of Ron Brown" as Reported from Washington

Vatic Note:  This was an old email I found in my box sent to me by Dick Eastman and he received it from someone else, but the info on here is relevant to what is going on today and the dangers of picking a wrong President.

Ron Brown was Pres Clintons Secretary of Commerce.   This below, not only details the death, the investigations and the wrong doing during the investigations, but also the possible reasons for eliminating Ron Brown from this planet.

The issue of the bullet wound to his head, was covered up and exposed later through people of integrity and how it was kept from the American people, that he was murdered and did not die just of an air-plane crash.  Its very detailed and comprehensive.

It appears that all we have been through began with Bush Sr. and continued on with Clinton.  The press needs to stand in the treason box and suffer the consequences of their withholding critical info from the American people.  This is truly getting out of hand.  I keep saying "Its amazing what we didn't know", thanks to the MSM owned by the Rothschild Khazars. 

My apologies for invading your inbox uninvited, but this is a matter of unusual importance. There is reason to believe that the Secretary of Commerce in the administration of Bill Clinton was murdered and the crime covered up by the government and the media. Please read carefully and send on to others.

Report from Washington

By Donald W. Stacey

A summary of a telephone conference with Chief Petty Officer Kathleen Janoski USN conducted by a group of concerned citizens.

On Wednesday, October 28, 1998, a group of citizens from various parts of the country talked with Kathleen Janoski. Chief Petty Officer Janoski was the Chief of the Forensic Photography Division at the Office of the Armed Forces Medical Examiner in the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (“AFIP”) and a 22-year veteran of the Navy. The subject of the discussion was the hole in Secretary of Commerce Ron Brown’s skull that looked like a bullet hole.


On April 3, 1996, while transporting Mr. Brown and 34 others, an Air Force CT-43 executive transport crashed near Dubrovnik, Croatia. Thirty three of the bodies, including Ron Brown’s, were flown to Dover Air Force Base, Delaware, where they were examined by AFIP personnel. At the time of the crash, Mr. Brown was under investigation by the Office of Independent Counsel (Mr. Daniel Pearson was the Special Prosecutor) and was under subpoena to produce documents concerning the sale of seats on trade missions in a civil law suit by Judicial Watch.
The official determination of the cause of Mr. Brown’s death was blunt force trauma as a result of the plane crash.

On November 24, 1997, shortly after the Air Force released a voluminous report of its investigation of the crash, an article concerning the report was published in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. On December 3, another article included statements by one of the pathologists on the AFIP team, Lt. Colonel Steven Cogswell (USAF), that there was a perfectly round hole, inward-beveled, in Mr. Brown’s skull that looked like a bullet hole. However, no autopsy was performed.

On December 5, Cogswell was put under a gag order. At about that time, he was escorted to his home by military police who seized all case materials on the Brown case.

On December 9, Lt. Colonel David Hause (U.S. Army) another AFIP pathologist and a leading expert on gun shot wounds, confirmed Cogswell’s statements. The gag order was broadened to include all AFIP personnel. http://www.newsmax.com/articles/?a=1997/12/10/181145

On January 8, 1998, the Department of Justice reported that it had looked into the matter and saw no reason to launch an investigation. No one from DOJ talked to Cogswell or Hause.

On January 9, the Washington Post reported that the AFIP had convened a review panel of all its pathologists that had unanimously concluded that Brown died of blunt force trauma and that the hole was not a gunshot wound. But Cogswell says he refused to participate in the review and that the only pathologists with expertise in bullet wounds dissented (i.e. himself, Hause & Major Thomas Parsons of the USAF).

Shortly after the Post article, Major Parsons came forth to indicate his dissent to the so-called “unanimous” board conclusion.

On January 13, a fourth member of the AFIP team, Chief Petty Officer Janoski, came forth to confirm the account of the skull hole. She further indicated that she had been told by Jeanmarie Sentelle, a Special Agent with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, that x-rays of Brown’s skull had been destroyed after the “lead snowstorm” was discovered. According to Sentelle, a “lead snowstorm” on x-rays is caused by bullet fragments when a bullet disintegrates upon impact.

Also on January 13, Cogswell, Parsons, Janoski and Larry Klayman of Judicial Watch met with Congressman John Conyers, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus. The Caucus is composed of 30 Congressmen, all Democrats. The Caucus called for a Congressional investigation and was supported by the NAACP, the Nation of Islam and Dick Gregory.

On February 12, a Petition to Order Continuation of the Independent Counsel’s Investigation into Matters Related to Former Secretary of Commerce Ronald H. Brown was filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. The NAACP and Dick Gregory filed documents in support of the petition. Apparently the court declined to decide the matter and referred it to Mr. Pearson for action. No action has been taken.

Although the mainstream media was eerily silent about most of the developments outlined here, Black Entertainment Television and Christian Broadcasting Network and a few others provided some coverage. Talk radio has provided coverage of the matter. Unfortunately most people know nothing about the hole in the skull.

A collection of articles appears at:

The Account of CPO Kathleen Janoski

Janoski’s duties included photographing the bodies from head to toe. Beginning at the head of Ron Brown, she saw a perfectly round hole in his skull. She said something to the effect “Wow. That looks like a bullet hole.” She immediately was “shushed” by Colonel William Gormley, the AFIP pathologist examining Brown’s body. She repeated her statement and was again “shushed.”

Hearing her comment, others in the room came to Brown’s body and looked at the hole. The hole was viewed by Hause, Gormley, Commander Edward Kilbane (USN) – all pathologists – and Lt. Colonel Craig Mallak who was doing his residency in pathology. There may have been other personnel in the room who saw the hole as well. Janoski’s photo of the apparent bullet hole can be viewed on the internet at”

On the light box at the morgue were x-rays of Brown’s skull which were photographed by Janoski. Ironically, her purpose in photographing the x-rays was to test the light meter in her new camera rather than record evidence. The photos of the x-rays became critically important when the x-rays apparently disappeared. The Brown files contain 15 x-rays of other parts of the body and the file cover indicates that there are 15 x-rays, indicating that the file is intended to support the conclusion that no skull x-rays were taken.

While photographing Brown’s body, Janoski was urged to hurry by Bob Veasey, AFIP investigator working with Colonel William Gormley, referring to “White House pressure.”

On the Friday following the crash but before the bodies had arrived at Dover Air Force Base, Kilbane, the team leader, attended a meeting at the West wing of the White House (where the Oval Office is located). On Saturday, a memorial service was held for Brown. President Clinton spoke. On Sunday (Easter) the bodies were examined by the AFIP team.

Cogswell did not view the hole in the skull as he was dispatched to the crash site in Croatia soon after the bodies arrived at Dover. While in Croatia, he was called by Gormley who asked that he check the wreckage to see what might have caused the hole that he described to Cogswell. Cogswell responded to Gormley that, as described, it sounded like a bullet hole. Cogswell checked the wreckage and photos were taken of objects that might have caused such an injury but nothing was found that could have been the cause of the hole. Gormley’s call to Cogswell came after Brown’s body had been embalmed and released for burial.

Gormley initially stated that the wound was not a bullet hole because it did not penetrate the skull and because the brain was not visible. Later he reversed himself saying that the skull was penetrated and that Brown’s brain was visible. He also confessed that no autopsy was ever requested “[based on discussions at the highest level from in Commerce, at the Joint [Chief of Staff] and the [Department of Defense], the White House …”


Although it seems clear that there is a perfectly round, inward beveled hole measuring .45 inches in Ron Brown’s skull and that no autopsy was performed, the media has failed to inform the American people about this matter. From pictures of skull x-rays, it appears that that there may be metal fragments in the skull. Apparently the x-rays have been destroyed and official records now indicate that there never were any. Colonel Gormley indicated that the decision not to have an autopsy was made with participation by the White House. It is important that as many people as possible see this report.

Justice for Ron Brown
By Joseph Farah
Posted: May 26, 2004

I didn't particularly like Ron Brown when he was alive. 

But I want justice for him today. 

What I can't figure out is why the people who liked him when he was alive have so little interest in seeking justice for him now that he's gone. 

Nearly 50 years after the murder of a 14-year-old black boy, Emmett Till, in Mississippi, there's a national outcry to identify his killers. And that's as it should be. 

Thugs beat him, shot him, and tossed his mutilated body into the Tallahatchie River in 1955. Then a jury deliberated 67 minutes before acquitting those accused of his murder.
Yet, no one has ever even stood accused of killing Ron Brown, the former secretary of commerce and head of the Democratic National Committee – despite compelling evidence presented in a new book by Jack Cashill, "Ron Brown's Body." 

At the very least, the first real investigation of Ron Brown's death needs to be conducted. The case needs to be reopened. There is no doubt at all that the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology obstructed justice in its brief examination of the cause of Brown's death.
Jack Cashill is the first reporter to read the 22-volume report and to find and examine Brown's death certificate. His book also benefits greatly from the complete cooperation of Brown's confidante Nolanda Hill and the U.S. Navy forensic photographer, Kathleen Janoski. Here is what we know for sure about Ron Brown's last days:

  • To protect his son Michael from prison, Ron Brown threatened to expose the White House's yet unrevealed Asian fund-raising scheme, in which Brown played a major role.
  • Just weeks before his death, Brown started going to church for the first time in his life. He was scared for his life and that of his confidante Hill.
  • The Croatian government insisted on a Dubrovnik stop an unprecedented 36 hours before Brown's scheduled landing.
  • The Air Force called Brown's pilot's nearly two-mile deviation into a Croatian hillside "inexplicable." No aircraft had ever drifted inland before at that airport. The AWACS data suggests sabotage of the ground-based navigation system, a line of inquiry that the Air Force was not allowed to pursue.
  • For the first time ever on friendly soil, the White House ordered the Air Force to skip the "safety" phase of the investigation and move directly to the "accident" phase. There would be no consideration other than accident, even though this airport was near the Bosnian border and in a potential hot-fire zone.
  • Three days after the crash and two days before his scheduled interview by the Air Force, the Croatian responsible for the airport's navigation system was found with a bullet hole in his chest.
  • A day later, every pathologist who viewed Brown's body concluded that his head wound, at the very least, looked like a bullet hole. In a decision that reached the White House, there would be no autopsy. The Brown family was not informed. Nor was there any forensic testing or a search for an exit wound.
  • The head x-rays, that showed a possible "lead snowstorm" were destroyed. Officially, they were lost.
  • The three Armed Forces pathologists and the forensic photographer who blew the whistle on this case had their careers destroyed.
  • In silencing these dissidents, the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology brass assured the public that Brown died of "multiple blunt force injuries" like the others. The death certificate says otherwise. It notes that Brown died of "blunt force injuries to the head." He was the only one of the 35 victims to have a reported head wound.
  • The Croatian neo-fascist strongman, Franjo Tudjman, who had feared a trip to the Hague as a war criminal, ended up a week after the election at the Walter Reed Army Hospital to have his cancer treated.
  • His son, Miroslav, investigated the death of the navigation chief and ruled it a suicide.

If this were not enough, Brown had gone to Croatia to broker a sweetheart deal between Tudjman and the Enron Corporation. The Enron execs took their own plane. All criminal charges against Michael Brown were dropped save for a campaign violation wrist slap.

Today, incredibly, he is vice chairman of finance for the Democratic National Committee. To keep Nolanda Hill quiet, the Clinton Justice Department indicted and incarcerated her on tax charges.

Without an autopsy or a serious inquiry into the plane crash, there will be no closure on Ron Brown's death.

If Emmett Till deserves posthumous justice, Lord knows Ron Brown does.
