“We hope that issuing you these copies of your original Certificate of Live Birth will end the numerous inquiries received by the Hawaii Department of Health to produce this document.”-Loretta Fuddy

“The dead cannot cry out for justice. It is a duty of the living to do so for them.” This quote is attributed to American author Lois Bujold, and should remind us that it is our responsibility to seek truth not just for ourselves, but for those who have been silenced by death.

The precursor to justice is truth. Those who purposely suppress the truth, betray justice not only for the dead but for the living as well. It is in this context that we have a moral obligation to Loretta Fuddy, the director of the Hawaii Department of Health, as well as to every American, to seek the truth of her death as the result of a plane crash on Wednesday.

Loretta Fuddy was the sole fatality of the nine occupants of a 2002 Cessna Grand Caravan single-engine turboprop aircraft that crashed into the ocean shortly after takeoff from Kalaupapa Airport on the island of Molokai in Hawaii. The reports surrounding her death are as murky as the reports of her alleged involvement in creating a falsified federal document of unprecedented significance, the Certificate of Live Birth (COLB) of Barack Hussein Obama.

It is alleged that Ms. Fuddy played a key role in the authentication, and perhaps even in the creation of the document presented to America as the certified birth record of a sitting U.S. president. It is that certified record that has been determined by many experts, including those retained by a commissioned law enforcement investigative body, to be a forged and fraudulent document. At the very least, Loretta Fuddy would have been a critical witness in a high crime of treason and other felonies against all Americans. Under these circumstances, is it not mandatory for responsible citizens to question the circumstances of her mysterious death? Do we not have a responsibility as Americans to insist on the truth, considering the current state as well as the fate of our nation?

Research into the death of Loretta Fuddy must begin with her life following her appointment as the director of the Hawaii Department of Health. She was appointed as director by Governor Neil Abercrombie on March 2, 2011. Ms. Fuddy had been acting health director from JanuaryF XVDHawaii Department of HealthHawaii Department of Health 2011 when the governor’s original nominee, Dr. Neal Palafox, withdrew his name at Abercrombie’s request. The circumstances of that political decision remained mired in controversy as well.

Ms. Fuddy’s appointment occurred during the groundswell of demands for Obama to produce his long form birth certificate, a document that supposedly resided in the interim chambers of the Hawaii Department of Health. As calls for the release of Obama’s records increased, Ms. Fuddy reportedly changed the policy of her department. At some point between mid March through the first week of April, she quietly instituted a policy that would deny requestors the ability to obtain certified copies of their birth certificate, and changed the internal request forms as well. This change served Obama well, as his assistants cited this “longstanding” policy as the reason for being unable to produce the requested documentation. By stealth, Ms. Fuddy was now the sole guardian of birth records.

This policy change made the theatrical production publicly profiled for all to see. Hawaii was granted an exception to Obama and his personal attorney to satisfy the insatiable, if not completely unreasonable demands by the now marginalized and maligned “birthers,” a pejorative term made up to characterize anyone who had the audacity to question the bona fides of Barack Hussein Obama. During this play production, arrangements were made for the Hawaii Department of Health to furnish the COLB to Obama’s attorney. For reasons for which no one seems to be interested, Corely flew to Hawaii to personally pick up the COLB

Ms. Fuddy’s public notoriety was elevated, and her place in history forever memorialized, when she authorized the release of Barack Obama’s Certificate of Live Birth (COLB) at his request. On April 25, 2011, she certified that she witnessed the copying of the original COLB. The document that was certified as a true copy by Ms. Fuddy was handed to Judith Corely, Barack Obama’s personal attorney, when Corely made a special trip to personally pick up the document instead of sending the document by a private courier, such as Federal Express.

It is that very document that was presented at a press gaggle shortly before 9:00 a.m. ET on April 27, 2011. It is this document that remains at the center of controversy with regard to its authenticity. It is this document, certified by Ms. Fuddy, that a number of experts claim is a blatant forgery. Now, Ms. Fuddy is no longer able to answer any questions about her role in the certification of this document.

It is within this context that every American should consider the potential ramifications of a forgery, especially as it relates to the already questionable background of the man seated in the highest office in America. By extension, it is not unreasonable to question the very suspicious events surrounding the plane crash that took only one life of nine aboard the plane – the life of the very person of significance to the unresolved issue of forgery. While many will correctly assert that accidents happen, and even freak circumstances take place, history also documents the nefarious activity of others related to occurrences of equal import.

Accident report curiosities

First public news reports of the plane crash in which Ms. Fuddy was a passenger began circulating at about 4:00 p.m. local time. The initial details were sketchy as first reports usually are. However, one eyewitness report originated from the pilot of a plane who observed the wreckage. The pilot reportedly observed eight-(8) people wearing life jackets floating in a field of debris at the approximate location where the plane struck the water. Initial news reports also stated that Ms. Fuddy failed to escape the passenger compartment of the plane, which would support the first and perhaps the most credible eyewitness account, as it came from a trained pilot circling the crash site. An initial statement by the Maui Fire Department also supports the report that Ms. Fuddy never made it out of the plane.

A statement was also made by Honolulu Fire Capt. Terry Seelig, who first reported that there was a fatality, according to KHON News.

That person remained in the fuselage of the plane. Not much details. Always a difficult situation when you can’t get everyone out, and unfortunately that was the case here.”

KHON-2 News also reported that the plane “crashed in waters a 1/2 mile off the north shore of Molokai. Specifically, they stated that the Maui Fire Department and two U.S. Coast Guard helicopters quickly got to the scene, rescuing eight-(8) people who got out of the plane.”

Early reports from the same news agency also provided additional insight:

“Nine people were onboard when the plane took off. One person was pronounced dead, three were flown to Honolulu and taken by ambulance to the Queens Medical Center. Another three stayed on Molokai and were hospitalized. The rest did not need any medical help.”

Consider this early report with public statements made by the Hawaii Department of Health. This agency maintained — for nearly four hours after the crash, that Ms. Fuddy and deputy director Keith Yamamoto, also a passenger on the plane, were alive. The significance of this assertion will become evident as the various accounts are considered with what was known at the time of the accident or shortly thereafter.

As already referenced but now stated in more detail, initial news reports announced that “three passengers were pulled from the water by the two Coast Guard helicopters, and Maui fire crews picked up ‘others. One crash survivor swam ashore.”

Despite these eyewitness and official accounts of Ms. Fuddy not making it out of the interior of the downed plane, ABC News reported several hours later the following account:

“In the final moments of her life, Hawaii Health Director Loretta Fuddy clung to the hand of her deputy after a small plane taking them back to Honolulu crashed in the ocean off the island of Molokai.

“In the water, Fuddy held hands with deputy director Keith Yamamoto as he tried to help her relax, said the Rev. Patrick Killilea, who consoled Yamamoto after the ordeal.”

“He recounted how he said he helped Loretta into her life jacket and he held her hand for some time,” the priest said. “They were all floating together and she let go and there was no response from her.”

At first, one might conclude that the “soul count” of survivors from the air by the circling pilot did not include the “swimmer,” thereby explaining the report of “eight-(8) people in life vests” in the water. When considered in the context of that report and the description of the scene offered via radio by the pilot circulating above, however, this theory is inconsistent with the timing of the circling plane.

Among the first news reports, it was disclosed that Fuddy’s deputy Keith Yamamoto, dressed in blue swim trunks and a tee shirt, was seen being driven away from Makani Air’s Honolulu Airport headquarters at about 7:00 p.m. local time, a full hour before the Hawaii Department of Health made the death of Ms. Fuddy public.

Despite the fact that the plane remains unrecovered and lays on the ocean floor of the Pacific, ABC News stated that Makani Kai Air airline owner Richard Schuman determined that “engine failure” was the cause of the crash. This, despite reports from the owner that the crashed plane has no prior reports of mechanical problems. A reasonable person might ask how this could be known without first inspecting the plane, especially since the plane had a clean inspection and maintenance record, according to the same airline owner.

According to reports from Hawaii, it is likely that we might never determine the actual cause of the crash. The reason? Conditions in this area of the ocean “prohibit” investigators from recovering the plane. There is no intention of recovering the airplane, according to various reports.

As detailed above, there are seriously conflicting accounts of the actual fate of Ms. Fuddy that should cause investigators to take notice.

The official working accident report provides the following general information:

Date: 11-DEC-2013
Time: 15:45 LT

Owner/operator: Makani Kai Air
Registration: N687MA
C/n / msn: 208B1002
Fatalities: Fatalities: 1 / Occupants: 9
Other fatalities: 0
Airplane damage: Unknown
Location: Offshore Kalaupapa Airport (PHLU), Kalaupapa, Molokai, HI – United States of America
Phase: Initial climb
Nature: Domestic Scheduled Passenger
Departure airport: PHLU
Destination airport: Honolulu Int’l (PHNL)
Narrative: The Makani Kai Air Cessna 208B Grand Caravan impacted ocean waters shortly after takeoff from Kalaupapa Airport (PHLU), on the island of Molokai in Hawaii. The airplane sustained unreported damage and one of the nine occupants onboard received fatal injuries. The injury status of the remaining eight rescued occupants that were onboard the aircraft have not been disclosed.

Erroneous and conflicting initial reports aside, there are very serious questions surrounding the events of December 11, 2013, in the water off the island of Hawaii. Factual events seem as murky as the water on the ocean floor, where the plane that carried the passengers now rests, and remain as questionable as the authenticity of the documents certified by the sole fatality aboard.

We live in a country where political dissent, once deemed patriotic, is now the equivalent of terrorism. Lies have become the norm and accepted as fact, despite unassailable evidence right in front of us. Small lies have given way to larger lies, as the more enormous the lie, the easier it is to sell to a readily accepting public suffering from attention deficit disorder.  In such an environment, is it unthinkable that a key conspirator in one of the most blatant forgeries could be silenced while others in her company could be disregarded as mere collateral damage?

As written in the beginning, seeking the truth is our moral imperative. The truth of the events of December 11, 2013, did not succumb with Ms. Fuddy, nor is it laying on the ocean floor. The truth still exists, at least for now, with others who are still alive. For them, this might serve as the impetus to assume center stage and disclose what they know, for their ability to draw breath in the future is certainly not guaranteed.

The truth also exists in the actions and evidence amassed over the last two years of Ms. Fuddy’s life. My next report will offer insight into those findings, and will also address the curious timing of Ms. Fuddy’s death.
