The following 1968 excerpt of an interview by the Truman Library’s Jerry Hess of Harry Truman’s appointments secretary for his full time as President, Matthew J. Connelly, confirms the statement made by Robert P. Nenno.
CONNELLY: He thought that the same things were happening, that people were annoying him, and he felt he was under surveillance down there, he felt that he was being watched, and in other words, he was being personally persecuted. So as a result of that, we had him very quietly removed to Bethesda hospital in Washington.

great post it's one the best posts that I've read here in ats in quite a while. btw this is my first time hearing about majestic 12 documents and was wondering where they came from and who leaked it out to the general public.
The Majestic 12 documents first surfaced in 1984. Jaime Shandera found a package in his mail containing only an undeveloped roll of film. Jamie had the roll developed and a set of apparently photographed secret documents
emerged. From then on notable researchers like Stanton Friedman studied the documents for years. There authenticy is still fiercely debated to this day.
All the documents can be viewed here.
There are also two excellent documentaries about Majestic 12.
One is called The Secret and can be found on Youtube and such. You can also order it from the Majestic website.
The name of the second one eludes me but it is also on Youtube. I would give you the links but I cannot access Youtube from work.
Just type in Majestic 12 in youtube and you should have no problem finding it.
Stanton Friedman also has lots of info about them on his website.

It is not his poem. I didn't even bother to look at it any further. It is so blatant a forgwery that I, an unprofessional, could have done a better job without trying. Whoever wrote it was naive enough to have not considered handwriting analysis would even be used to confirm it.
There was no criminal investigation done whatsoever. The police did not because the death happened at a Naval hospital and the Navy did not for reasons unknown. The Willcutts committee were all medical men so they missed a lot of good opportunities to get to the truth when examining the witnesses for example.
HESS: What do you recall about the unfortunate mental breakdown that overtook Mr. Forrestal?
LEVA: Well, I may have been in the position of not being able to see the forest for the trees because I was seeing him six, eight, ten, twelve times a day and both in and out of the office. A lot of his friends have said since his death, "Oh, we saw it coming," and, "We knew this and we knew that." The only thing that I knew was that he was terribly tired, terribly overworked, spending frequently literally sixteen hours and eighteen hours a day trying to administer an impossible mechanism, worrying about the fact that a lot of it was of his own creation. I knew that he was tired, I begged him to take time off. I'm sure that others begged him to take time off. I just thought he was terribly tired and he ought to take time off.
My further recollection at that time is that Stuart Symington said to me, "Marx, old fellow, would you mind if I rode back to the Pentagon with Jim; there's something I want to talk to him about." I don't know what it was. I said, "Sure."
So, I rode back with Royall because Forrestal and I had driven over together. When I got back to the Pentagon I went back to my office. Forrestal had been given an office down from the Secretary of Defense a little, next door to mine. So I stuck my head in--it was next door to my office--and he was sitting there just like this with his hat on his head, just gazing. And I went in and I said, "Mr. Secretary, is there anything I can do for you?"
He was almost in a coma really. That was when I first knew and that was when I first got scared. So I said, "Do you feel faint?" I don't remember what I said.
He said, "No, no, I want to go home."
So, he got up and headed for the door and I said, "Where are you going?"
He said, "I'm going for my car." Well, he didn't have a car.
So, I ran like hell.

I was already familiar with the JV Forrestal case after reading about it many years back. The evidence seems to point to foul play involved in this case. Thank you for a great thread. Great information for those not familiar with the case or if you need a refresher.
