Petition to President Bush

In view of the good relationship you have established with President Putin, I join in petitioning you to inquire about the fate of the 269 persons, including Cong. Larry McDonald and 60 other Americans, aboard KAL 007 when it crash landed near Sakhalin on August 31, 1983. Radar tracking tells us that the 747 made a controlled descent and that there were too few bodies or parts to prove that more than a dozen people died. Many shoes were washed up on beaches, but no life jackets, no luggage and very few personal effects were found, and indication that nearly all survived. If Mr. Putin says there were no survivors, please ask him to explain why there is so little evidence of death and so much of survival. Since the black box tapes made public in 1993 covered only 104 seconds after the missile hit, ask that he now release tapes covering all 13 minutes of descent.
