Death of an American hero

On Sunday morning I received a text from Elizabeth Sanders saying what I feared it would say, “Jim passed away this morning.”

“So sorry,” I answered. “He was one of a kind.” Said Elizabeth, “Yea he was.”

Elizabeth was in a position to know. In the pursuit of truth, she and James – his preferred public name – had endured the worst the U.S. government could throw at them and survived with their integrity and their patriotism intact. I first met the Sanders in September 2000 at a Kansas City country club where James was making a presentation. A veteran cop turned investigative reporter, he had authored the 1997 book “The Downing of TWA Flight 800,” and paid a high price for doing so. As James explained, 53 TWA employees were on board that doomed aircraft in July 1996, most of them deadheading back to Paris.
