Do you remember Admiral Boorda who allegedly committed suicide in 1996 by shooting himself twice in the chest. He was the Chief of Naval Operations.
Some say he was involved in a plan to arrest President Clinton.

Where is all the glass?
Was it broken over his head by the guard?
We both went into his room and he wasn't there and we noticed the broken glass on the bed and looked down and noticed the razor blade and told him he was missing and she said it was one forty-eight.
The Guard is a liar.
two CIA agents entered the hospital room, tied a bedsheet around Forrestal's neck and to a light fixture, and threw him out the window to hang. The bedsheet[s] broke and he fell to his death, screaming on his way down according to some witnesses "We're being invaded!" - Branton

I don't think they believe we are dumb, I think they know they can intimidate us and make us fearful to talk. If they could do this to someone like Forestall and get away with it, how many other mysterious deaths are we not aware of?
On Sept. 18, 1947, the Office of the Secretary of the Air Force was officially activated and Symington took the oath of office. As he had done when he was assistant secretary of war for air, Symington continued to represent the Air Force in Congress. He had a knack for keeping in touch with almost every facet of his operation, while avoiding becoming bogged down in details. Symington had the utmost respect for his chiefs of staff, Generals Spaatz and Hoyt S. Vandenberg, and their relationships solidified during his tenure.
On several occasions, Secretary of Defense James Forrestal was so much at odds with the air secretary that he contemplated asking for Symington's resignation.
Symington's final year in office was dominated by the B-36 controversy, an issue that shook the new Air Force organization to its roots. Not only on the line were the secretary's integrity and career and the reputation of prominent Air Force generals, but the future roles and missions of the Air Force as well. Detractors questioned the B-36's capacity to perform its mission at the range, speed, and altitude the Air Force claimed. Attacks against the aircraft culminated on May 26, 1949, when Rep. James E. Van Zandt told Congress that he demanded answers to specific questions about the B-36, which were based on statements he had read in an anonymous document. In January 1950 the final report of the House Investigative Committee declared the Air Force's B-36 procurement record clean and stated that there was not a "scintilla" of evidence to support the charges, reports, rumors and innuendoes, alleging irregularities or improprieties in the procurement process. The committee wanted it made known that Symington, the leaders of the Air Force, and Secretary of Defense Johnson had survived the inquiry with "unblemished, impeccable reputations."
Forrestal continued to advocate for complete racial integration of the services as Secretary of Defense, a policy that was eventually implemented in 1949.
During private cabinet meetings with President Truman in 1946 and 1947, Forrestal had argued against partition of Palestine on the grounds it would infuriate Arab countries who supplied oil needed for the U.S. economy and national defense. Instead, Forrestal favored a federalization plan for Palestine. Outside the White House, response to Truman's continued silence on the issue was immediate. President Truman received threats to cut off campaign contributions from wealthy donors, as well as hate mail, including a letter accusing him of "preferring fascist and Arab elements to the democracy-loving Jewish people of Palestine. Appalled by the intensity and implied threats over the partition question, Forrestal appealed to Truman in two separate cabinet meetings not to base his decision on partition, whatever the outcome, on the basis of political pressure.
Pearson told his own protege, Jack Anderson that he believed Forrestal was "the most dangerous man in America" and claimed that if he was not removed from office, he would "cause another world war".

BTW, this thread IS a breath of investigative fresh air! Good job on the hunt, and keep up the good work!
The meeting then proceeded to a discussion of Dr. William C. Menninger's ...... hypnotic studies on the predominantly individual nature of color symbolism. ..... as arising in the form of hallucinatory images and ideas of drive objects, ...

First off, to the OP, THANK YOU VERY MUCH! For a breath of much needed fresh air on this site. Although I have seen many posts on Forrestal on this site I find that this is definitely one of the best ones.
Olsen is a GREAT example. Although he wasn't working on anything to do with ETs he was in deep within the CIA murdering machine. He did a LOT of work on the concept of a Manchurian Candidate. Of course the CIA claims that he offed himself by jumping from a window. It's just amazing that it came a little after he decided that he didn't really like what he was seeing done to the 'volunteers' they were doing the 'brainwashing' tests on. People were dying left and right all so the CIA could 'progress'. How the heck is that progress?
Anyway, they claim that the program was a failure. That it was not possible to make anyone do what they don't want to. Well, let me tell you this much. If I were a secret police (which is what they are) and I found a way to brainwash people, I wouldn't tell ANYONE.
