To prevent any misunderstanding, I am forwarding the chain of events,
here. As far as I know, these people are on the inside, and know the truth.
My first email was to AIMAZ@aol.com, after having done a search for "Pine
Ridge". The above email address was listed on the page. It was an attempt to
verify the truth of the posting on your page. Recreate this, yourself.
I have replaced my email address throughout this missive with "Paul", as it
is my personal email address.
Here is the email, including replies. The referenced statement is what I
forwarded to you, earlier today.
As far as my last name goes, so what? If indeed there is a relation to
James, am I defined by that? Should I be proud or ashamed of who I am
because of another?
However, because of the tremendous amount of disinformation involving TWA
800, I can certainly understand why the name would give you pause,
as it was the Assistant Director (James Kallstrom), of the FBI in New York
that spearheaded the investigation, and held the press conferences.
Do NOT paint me with the same brush.
The email being circulated by the newshawk name is not true. While there is
a situation in Pine Ridge...the person in the email you sent to me has
greatly exaggerated the situation. The FBI was requested by the Indians so
that documents could be turned over to them..I will forward to you a
statement being put our regarding the email you sent...
