So many ways sleuths have tried to decipher the Ramsey ransom note, often digging beneath the surface, taking little if anything at face value. Especially that seemingly impenetrable sign off. Was it written to direct attention to Son of a Bitch Tom Carson? Or, was Jonbenet, ultimately, Saved By The Cross? Could it have meant, naively, Subic Bay Training Center? A supposed Naval installation located within a country which had a history of executions via the garrote?
Maybe, just maybe, the Ransom note, though most likely never intended to be genuine, wasn’t meant to be all that “indecipherably deceptive.”
It was a fabrication, for sure, but it was born of its time.
“We are a group of individuals that represent a small foreign faction. We respect your bussiness but not the country it serves.”
In 1996, which part of the world kept American foreign policy experts up at night? The Balkans, where country-less Serbs, a small foreign faction (to Americans, Croats and Muslims) were viciously and dramatically engaged in creating a Greater Serbia. Now, why would Serbs of any flavor target John Ramsey?
In 1995, Captain Scott O’Grady was shot down over the Balkans (big, big news) in a F-16C, which – according to Wikipedia – was manufactured by General Dynamics and – you guessed it – Lockheed Martin. Lockheed Martin (which makes a lot of weapons, instruments of American foreign policy) owned which company? Access Graphics. Who was the biggest big shot for Access Graphics? John Ramsey.
So, after Jonbenet somehow got herself killed that night, and a panicky manslaughterer (and possibly accomplice(s) or vice-versa) was frantically fishing about for an explanation, any explanation ... voila, a cockeyed narrative was born: South Slavic Terrorists (don’t you read the papers, circa 1996?) hitting back at America where it was vulnerable: an executive of a company, owned by another company, one that was making weapons to terrorize Serbs.
Serbian Bosnian Terror Cell/ Cadre.
(Note: Jonbenet’s death, her “near” beheading, was a result of impulsive Patsy ignoring the Ransom Note’s instructions. Maybe.)
