Forrestal, Skippy Creator Shared Similar Fate

Subj: Thanks for James Forrestal incisive story

Date: 9/26/03

For the last few hours I have been mesmerized by your story, “Who Killed James Forrestal?” I found this after reading your online book, “America’s Dreyfus Affair“, with which I was very impressed, and wanted to learn more about you.


Percy Crosby (

My father, Percy L. Crosby (1891-1964) also knew Forrestal, both of whom were clients of the formerly prestigious NY law firm, Lord, Day & Lord (disbanded 1994, over which former Atty. Gen. Herbert Brownell reigned, Tom Dewey’s close friend and campaign advisor in the Truman-Dewey campaign). Both Forrestal and my father met similar fates, and had made similar enemies who had them black-listed. Currently, my family and I are fighting for our lives (in an Emile Zola type battle you referred to in your book re America’s Dreyfus Affair), in a major fraud lawsuit, too controversial for media to cover, or expose the “truth buried underground”.

Some of the underlying facts of suit are revealed in my web site story of my father’s life ( who was the creator of the famous “Skippy” character, among other literary pursuits (political cartoons, diatribes against the high and mighty, etc.). It may be of interest to you. If so, I would very much like to speak with you. You have done an amazing and splendid job of research and writing, and I’m very impressed.

Your analysis of the Israel-Palestine problem, and its effect on Forrestal is superb, and most timely for today—what Forrestal and others feared has come to pass despite those of us small citizens who tried to speak out and warn of the consequences. My late husband, Waldo Tibbetts, and I were stationed in Israel (1957-60) when he was director of C.A.R.E., a private relief agency, after which he spent 6 years in Saudi Arabia and Egypt as civilian consultant-economist, 1980-86. I have been vilified and labeled as anti-Semitic so often by the defendant Skippy pirates it no longer carries any pain, although I learned to read, write and speak Hebrew fairly well while in Israel, and could laugh (then) at the disparaging comments made to my husband and me as “goyim” (gentiles), done in friendly, joking manner.

My outlook changed after I learned of my father’s 16 years of confinement as a political prisoner in a mental hospital, and those who held him hostage. Like Henry Forrestal, I also am “damned bitter” about the disinformation, cover-up and became the target for the defendants’ relentless efforts to silence me, portraying me as mentally ill, like they did my father. So much for the goodness and popularity of the “famous” SKIPPY brand peanut butter, truly a story deserving of Dickens, where crime pays big and there is no honor among thieves.

If you haven’t yet read the Skippy story on her site you should do so. It’s extremely shocking and revealing.

  1. It was very interesting until I got to the anti-semitic part. I’ve just had enough of folks who support the violence and hatred of the Muzzies. It’s sad, too. If you didn’t try to hijack an otherwise fascinating story to back our enemies in the Middle East…you’d probably reach more folks.


    • What about the violence and hatred of Israel? What about their murderous rampage in Gaza? Israel has no right to exist. The US, UK, and UN had no right to create Israel, they just abrogated that right to themselves. Open your blind eyes.


      • some actually believe all the “Jewish” lies,
        and not their lying eyes…

        Can’t believe the numbers of whole families TALMUDIA has wiped out,
        families of 20 and 30 people….sometimes even more.

        It happened a bit in 2008/09 with the most well known being the
        al Samounis in Zeitoun.

        Now I must have heard 6-12 cases of whole large families just MURDERED
        by the Gog & Magog Zionist TERRORIST so-called “Jews”….
        you know from New York
        and Poland….and L.A.

        By any standard, the U.S. has a huge stake in the tranquility of the Middle East.
        As a high-ranking State Department official puts it:
        “We can’t have another one of these wars every few years.
        It’s too costly and it’s too damned dangerous.”
        Among other things, this is probably the last war the Arabs and Israel can fight
        without employing fearfully destructive and sophisticated weapons.
        The escalation from 1956 is itself sobering.
        The obstacles that confront the U.S. in its efforts to play a constructive role are admittedly greater than at any time since it moved onto the Middle Eastern stage, and it will take time to restore our exhausted credit with the Arabs. But the effort must he made. Our own safety is too intimately involved to write off the Arabs. And if we are not to write them off, our policy makers may well have to move visibly into a posture of more balanced friendship with both sides. The war, and our pro-Israeli stance, have cut the ground from beneath those Arabs who were our advocates. If they are to take a public position favorable to us again, we must give them something to rally around. It is equally true that the Arabs will have to respond positively.
        Our incredibly obtuse commitment to TERRORIST TALMUDIA’s existence is not negotiable… least not in rational terms.
        From our own point of view, the beginning of wisdom is to understand that we are in serious trouble in the Arab lands, and that we cannot just wait patiently for them to get over their anger.
        If we make no moves, our adversaries could win the game by default….
        as if another 300 million to 3 billion mass murders is acceptable losses in this
        “game”…with the Zionist “Jews”.

        Who freaking PRINT THE CURRENCY & OWN THE MEDIA…


    • Our enemies? I am reminded of a poem I posted back in 2000 entitled “Naval Terrorism”:

      I remember all too well
      The USS Liberty,*
      So when I think of Israel
      It’s not in terms of “we.”


      I was an officer in the U.S. Army at the time of the cowardly Gaza-style attack by Israel on the Liberty that killed 34 of my fellow servicemen and wounded scores of others. Like the residents of Gaza, they were virtually defenseless. One of my best friends was on a sister ship to the Liberty at the time. Like Joan Tibbetts, the surviving crewmen have been denounced as anti-Semitic repeatedly for their efforts to obtain justice.

      The “muzzies” are not “our enemies.” Like me and many other patriotic Americans, they are enemies of our neocon foreign policy. Before this country was hijacked by the Zionists, the Arab and Muslim world were friends and admirers of the United States, which, among the Western powers, they perceived to be the least imperialist.


      • Thank you for that. I almost let it go, but I am convinced that ignorance is no longer a legitimate reason for these idiots to come here with the anti-Semitism canard, when, as I wrote to the shill, the REAL Semites are the Gazans/Palestinians. The REAL anti-semities are the Jews killing the REAL Semites.


    • At this point, people who blabble the rhetoric (as you have) fall into one of two categories: The truly ignorant of the real happenings in Gaza/Palestine (usually the TV Sheople) or you are a shill, swimming against the current of realization that the world, by and large (except for the gullible sycophants, such as yourself) understands that they (we) have been duped by the lies and now we see the truth of Israel (and the Jews that support the carnage).

      The disconnect, which I find impossible to NOT see, is that you insist there is “anti-Semitism” found in the words above. The fact is that most around here support the REAL Semites (the Palestinians) against the REAL anti-Semites, the Jews in Israel.

      It is those Jews killing the REAL Semites, moron. We want it stopped.
