The Airplane Crash on LBJ’s Ranch in February 1961: Still Another Piece of LBJ’s Legacy Missed by Robert Caro

Page 3Erroneous citations in James D. Norvell’s Treason, Treachery & Deceit: The Murderers of JFK, MLK & RFK to Robert Caro’s Path to Power. Which begs the question, “Where Did Norvell get the information about the airplane crash on LBJ’s ranch?” The answer may lie in the fact that very few books noted it, as explained in the narrative above. My book LBJ the Mastermind was one of the few, and the one which revealed the most information about it. However, during the period 2011-2012, the book was under heavy attack by many so-called “seekers of truth” who wanted to discredit the work,* Norvell was evidently looking for a more “credible” source, so apparently he chose to cite Caro’s work, arbitrarily assigning page numbers that had no trace of this story. This is a very troubling indication that the real mission of certain people who hold themselves out as “seekers of truth” are in fact acting as “perpetrators of lies and myth.” It is they who need to be discredited, and this piece of it now becomes conclusive evidence of their chicanery.

From Robert Caro’s first LBJ book “The Path to Power”:

Though you won’t find any references to the crash of an airplane on the LBJ Ranch in any of this, the contrast Caro drew of Lyndon Johnson’s college years with a roomie named “Bloody Johnson,” compared to his subject Lyndon is definitely worth reading on pp. 157-158.

Nothing on the referenced page 239 about an airplane crash, but more than you want to know about Lyndon Johnson’s defecation habits:
