TWA FLIGHT 800 WAS SHOT DOWN BY MISSILE
OVER 600 EYEWITNESSES SAID SO IN 1996, BUT WERE IGNORED... NOT ANY MORE!
Investigators from the first probe of doomed TWA Flight 800 called
Wednesday for a new examination of the tragedy, resurrecting old claims
that a missile downed the plane.
A half-dozen people involved in the original inquiry into the July 17,
1996, blast that killed 230 people on a Paris-bound flight out of JFK
Airport claimed new evidence supports the oft-suggested missile theory.
"WE ARE NOT SPECULATING IN THE LEAST," insisted Stalcup,
co-founder of the Flight 800 Independent Researchers Organization. "We are basing our conclusion on the facts," he said. "Based on the
evidence, we can push [THE NTSB'S] conclusions aside. I think the whole
world should listen."
The investigators charged the original probe ignored testimony
from nearly 700 eyewitnesses and included evidence tampering.
New evidence suggests there were more than 100 traces of explosives
found in the plane's wreckage, and internal CIA documents suggest a
cover-up, they charge.
Paris-bound TWA Flight 800 "exploded" off the coast of Long Island on July 17, 1996. HOW MUCH EVIDENCE DID THEY NEED? THIS WAS ALL KNOWN AND TALKED ABOUT BACK WHEN IT HAPPENED! IT TOOK 17 YEARS TO GO PUBLIC? WHY? FAA RADAR SHOWED A MISSILE, BUT THAT WAS THROWN OUT AS WELL REMEMBER? NOW THEY WANT TO LET THAT CAT OUT OF THE BAG? SHOULD WE APPLY THE "BETTER LATE THAN NEVER" TO THIS?
The NTSB issued a statement responding to the reinvestigation request.
Conspiracy theories surrounding the plane's demise began circulating
within days of its crash off Long Island. "While the NTSB rarely re-investigates issues that have already been
examined, our investigations are never closed and we can review any new
information," the federal agency said.
YEAH, WELL, IS IT A CONSPIRACY THEORY NOW? HAVE YOU NOTICED HOW MANY "CONSPIRACY THEORIES" HAVE BEEN PROVEN FACTUAL LATELY?
The head of the NTSB's original investigation, Robert Francis, declined comment on the petition.
BACK IN JUNE, 2000, 75 PILOTS WERE SHOWN A FILM NAMED "Silenced: Flight 800 and
the Subversion of Justice".
Afterwards, NOT A ONE among them, either publicly or
privately, challenged the video's thesis that TWA Flight 800 had indeed
been shot down.
Offered instead were corroborating details, particularly
from angry TWA pilots, about the money trail and the inexplicable Pentagon
visits of then TWA CEO Jeff Erickson. Said one TWA pilot. "90 percent
of us believe there was a government cover-up."
From the Boeing community in Seattle the response has
been much the same. Writes one Boeing engineer, a man who had spent countless
hours helping analyze TWA 800 on Boeing's Cray Supercomputers, "I
brought it ("Silenced") to work today and showed it during lunch
to eight of my fellow Boeing workers. The room was deathly quiet the entire
time. ... My impression then was a missile strike, and it is even more
THE FOLLOWING IS VERY IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ IT CAREFULLY. BACK IN 2000, Mike Wire, the
Philadelphia millwright on whose presumed [but altered] testimony the CIA based its notorious
animation of TWA 800 rocketing upwards like a missile, SAID IN PUBLIC...
"The video 'Silenced' presents a factual reenactment
of what I saw that night. My part of the video also is what I told the
FBI a few days after the incident at an in-depth interview at my residence.
As you can see, what I saw originated from behind the houses on the beach
- that is why I at first thought it to be a firework. It most definitely
didn't start up in the sky like the FBI/CIA story says. I don't know how
they could (come) up with that scenario because it doesn't match what I
saw and told the FBI or what other witnesses I have talk to since May of
2000 had reported."
ALSO BACK IN 2000,Dwight Brumley, a 20-year Navy vet who watched
the tragedy unfold from above, publicly stated, after watching "Silenced":
"The CIA animation in no way represents what I saw
that night. Based on the time line, as I understand it, the "flare"
that I reported seeing off the right side of and below USAir 217 could
not, I repeat, could not have been TWA 800 in crippled flight just before
and after it exploded. There are two reasons why. First, TWA 800 would
have been moving in my field of view from left to right, not from right
to left as I clearly observed; and second, my understanding of the basic
laws of aerodynamics leads me to conclude there is no way that TWA 800,
with the nose section gone, could have possibly climbed 3,000-4,000 feet
as the CIA video portrays." WHAT BRUMLEY AND HUNDREDS OF OTHERS SAW AND TRIED TO REPORT WAS INDEED REPORTED BY THE FAA, AND THEN BURIED. At 8:31 p.m., FAA radar operators out of Islip (on Long Island) saw
an unknown object rise up and merge with Flight 800. This, they
reported to the highest authorities. National Transportation Safety
Board (NTSB) Chairman Jim Hall acknowledged as much in a November, 1996,
memo. He wrote:
Top intelligence and security officials were told in a video
conference from the White House Situation Room that radar tapes showed
an object headed at the plane before it exploded.
At the same moment FAA radar picked up something else unusual –
a ship of good size nearly right under Flight 800′s final airborne
For the record, under President Clinton, Peter Goelz, the managing director of
NTSBwhen Flight 800 went down, ascended through the ranks of the Missouri River gambling lobbyists to become
chief administrator of the National Transportation Safety Board in just a brief few years.
Also for the record, Goelz's NTSB refused to let any of the 736 official
eyewitnesses - several of them experienced military observers - testify
at either hearing after the 'crash', and it disallowed all discussion of explosive residue
(found all over the plane) lest the FBI one day reopen the criminal case.
And yes, as he knows and the FBI acknowledges, there was a "fleeing ship".
As to the plane, it was NOT particularly old and certainly
no more explosive than the average 747. If the NTSB had believed what Goelz had tried to pass off as an exploding wing tank, they would have recalled those planes quicker than you could
say "FIRE!" INSTEAD AFTER SPENDING $40 MILLION 'INVESTIGATING',the NTSB was unable
to identify a single scenario that would allow the plane to just 'blow up'.ONE OF THE MOST HORRIFYING REJECTIONS OF TESTIMONY WAS THAT GIVEN BY MAJOR FRITZ MEYER.
Meyer told what he saw in the sky at 8:31 p.m. that
summer night off the coast of Long Island where 230 people were killed.
On site with a camera crew, Meyer said AGAIN in 2000 that he saw a trail of
white headed for the plane and then four explosions before the ultimate
fuel-tank explosion that erupted into a fireball. But when Meyer
approached the FBI to give his testimony in 1996, he got a five-minute interview with a
single agent who took no notes, and that was the only time he was given a chance to tell what he saw until 2000. Meyer is a Vietnam war combat veteran who flew 46 rescue missions in
Vietnam and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross. But despite the
witness’ credibility, the FBI never contacted him again. Experts in aviation, military personnel, a national machinists union and others all contest the CIA’s explanation of the crash.
Investigative reporter James Sanders, a former California police
officer-turned-journalist, and his wife were convicted of conspiracy and theft after his
research led to the exposure of physical evidence of a missile
During the couple’s April 1999 trial, the jury was not allowed to know about Sanders’ occupation as an investigative journalist
Sanders and his wife, Elizabeth, a former TWA flight attendant and
trainer, were both found guilty of the felony offense after one of TWA’s
top investigators assigned to Flight 800, Capt. Terrell Stacey,
testified against them. The couple knew that Stacey, a pilot who flew
the Flight 800 route from Paris to New York the day before the crash,
was preparing to scrape a residue sample off the interior of the
passenger compartment. But when scraping proved implausible, Stacey
removed small pieces of the plane and seat cloth and sent them to
Sanders, who had lab tests performed on the residue.
Test results confirmed what Sanders had suspected: The residue could
have been produced by a “solid fuel missile or warhead explosion". Government agents on the case dismissed the lab results, first saying
the residue was glue and then claiming it was the result of a bomb-dog
What happened to the Federal Aviation Administration’s radar data
showing a high-velocity object colliding with Flight 800? Why hasn’t
the NTSB been able to prove a mechanical error caused the spark that
ignited the fuel explosion? Who was driving the mystery boat at sea beneath the site of the explosion, and why did it speed away after the
incident? What evidence was being removed from the aircraft’s
reconstruction site the night three FBI agents were caught fleeing the
scene at 3 a.m.?
Of the 100 eyewitnesses who were RECORDED as being interviewed by the FBI ALL, EVERY ONE OF THEM, described seeing a
missile, says retired Navy Commander William S. Donaldson III, a former
military crash investigator, trained flight controller and expert
investigator. The witnesses were located in a full circle around the crash site on
four aircraft, 19 boats, and 31 locations on shore. Many of the
witnesses have expertise which would enable them to distinguish a
missile from a burning aircraft. Over 5 times as many proven eyewitnesses who were NOT interviewed by the FBI have also said they saw a missile strike the plane. Strangely, it IS documented that an operations manual for the search for missile parts was issued by the
FBI, and an official government report was unable to rule out a missile
and called for further investigation — something that has NOT been done,
according to Donaldson and other very believable confirming sources.
The FBI investigators should have made recordings or even videotapes of
the interviews with the witnesses. They also failed to ask technical
questions which would have enabled them to perform a triangulation and
identify where the missiles was launched. Donaldson complained that the
FBI simply wrote a few sketchy notes about each interview.
The FBI did not use any special equipment to take bearing lines from
each witness location. They also did not ask questions related to speed
of what witnesses saw going up and hitting the airplane. Witnesses were
also not asked how many seconds it took from the apparent launch to the
time of contact with the airplane.
IT JUST GETS DARKER...
The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration research
ship Rude (pronounced “Rudy”) was able to reach the crash site of TWA
Flight 800 the morning after the crash. The very high-tech vessel is
equipped with side sonar.
“Finally when Capt. Debeau got the last transponder position the
aircraft had actually transmitted from, and got the course and the
speed, he plugged into his computers and got a ballistic solution to
where the airplane went,” explained Donaldson.
He reported that Capt. Debeau was contacted by the National
Transportation Safety Board and was asked to pick up surface debris.
This was unusual because the ship was the best equipped of all units on
the scene to look for items below the water, not recover floating items
which could be more easily picked up by larger vessels which were better
equipped to do that.
“There were six other Coast Guard Cutters that were bigger ships on
scene and didn’t have that vital gear on board that the Rude did,” said
Cmdr. Donaldson. “You start screwing around with something on the
surface when you’re a sub-sea observer — it’s a waste of your mission.
The NTSB gives him a surface job and that screws up his looking for the
debris on the bottom. Eventually he passed it off to a cutter.”
Within just 10 hours of searching the bottom for debris, the Rude
provided detailed maps to the NTSB which showed the exact location of
the under water debris fields. Despite having such vital information so
quickly, orders from the White House prevented any recover effort for
almost a week. Official Coast Guard logs indicate that a call was placed to Weeks
Marine, Inc. with a verbal agreement for that company to begin salvage
recovery immediately. That contact was made shortly after the crash.
Weeks Marine had the largest salvage vessel on the East Coast just a
short distance away in transit.
The large ship was equipped for just this type of operation with
large cranes, 50 tethered divers, and plenty of deck space for the
debris. The FAA also placed a call to Weeks Marine just after the crash.
They were ready to go to work by the time the Rude had completed their
maps of the location of the debris.
“What I’m telling you is, by the 19th in the morning, with divers on
board they could have started extracting major sub-sea debris. Putting
it on deck on the Weeks Marine barge,” explained Donaldson.
A call from the White House changed all that. Rather than begin
salvage of debris and bodies just a day and a half after the crash,
recovery was delayed until the 23rd when NAVY equipment arrived from
Norfolk, Va., Donaldson says. WHY? WHY DELAY RECOVERY? WHAT WERE THEY WAITING FOR?Although empowered by Congress to take charge of such scenes (Title 49
U.S.C.), the NTSB failed to do so. The U.S. Justice Department would not
permit it.U.S. Attorney Valerie Caproni descended upon the site, FBI
in tow, and forcefully shut down the NTSB investigation. By law, The
FBI could only seize control if they declared the crash a crime scene.
This, they did not do, and never would.
According to The New York Times, senior NTSB officials were furious. In
times past, the NTSB might have resisted. Not in 1996. Three years
prior, President Clinton neutered this once proud agency when he named
attorney Jim Hall, an old Gore crony from Tennessee, first to the NTSB
board and quickly to its chair. Hall’s best qualification – said the
Washington Post in an unkind cut – was his “driver’s license.”
For its part, the NTSB officially argued for mechanical failure
virtually from day one. As Liz Sanders notes, “All of a sudden you’re
hearing mechanical, mechanical, mechanical.” And at that time, adds
Liz, “They didn’t have the mock-up – nothing.”
Within months, the NTSB went on record favoring an explosion
of fuel vapor in the center wing tank. The public debate – spurred on by
a media either too corrupt or too complicit to care – was now between
bomb and mechanical. This false dialectic troubled many inside the
Donaldson has requested the results of government tests on critical
parts of the debris from the crash. BEING AN EXPERT, HE KNEW WHAT TO ASK FOR TO PROVE THE POINT. His requests have met with
significant resistance and refusal to cooperate.
ONE THING HE DID FIND OUT...
“The left-side body wall is a critical piece of hardware on the
aircraft,” he explained to WorldNetDaily. “It no longer exists. It’s the
common wall in the tank system between the center wing tank and the
number two main, which is the first tank out on the left wing. That wall
was blown in to the center tank at extremely high energy. An NTSB lawyer responded to Donaldson’s request for info and admitted
the proper tests were not done and will not be done on the section of
the plane in question.
Donaldson now has photos of the evidence. He says the government
explanation does not stand up to the visual, technical, or extensive forensic evidence aa well as the reports issued by
their own scientists who examined that evidence.
“In forensic evidence you have this huge shock damage to the left
wing that blew out hundreds of square feet of side body wall and turned
them into BBs. I mean, I’m not kidding you. Little pieces always mean
high energy. Big pieces, or bulge pieces, mean a much lower energy
state. It’s simple. But they won’t even talk about it. That’s what’s so
frustrating,” he explained.
WHY IS THERE NO MENTION OF 3 VESSELS ON CLASSIFIED MANEUVERS IN THE INITIAL "INVESTIGATION"?
WITH THE ABOVE INFORMATION, WE MAY WELL ASK IF FLIGHT 800 WAS "ACCIDENTALLY" HIT BY A MISSILE, IF THE WHOLE THING WAS A NAVY SNAFU!
HOW MANY IN THE MEDIA WERE MADE AWARE OF THAT BACK THEN?
THIS SCENARIO THROWN TOGETHER BY THE CIA IN THEIR IDIOTIC VIDEO IS PURE SCIENCE FICTION!
THEY ASK US TO BELIEVE THAT LOSING THE ENTIRE 1/3 OF THE JET PITCHED IT UPWARD AND THAT IT CLIMBED ALMOST 4000 FEET BEFORE FALLING TO EARTH.
WATCH FOR YOURSELVES SEE IF YOU THINK THIS IS AERODYNAMICALLY OR PHYSICALLY POSSIBLE. IT DEFIES THE LAW OF GRAVITY!
ONE OF THE FEW MEDIA REPORTS OF EYEWITNESS TESTIMONY, BUT THE CIA ASSURES VIEWERS THAT THE EYEWITNESSES WERE WRONG...EVEN EXPLAINING AWAY THAT WHITE TRAIL ALL SAID THEY SAW.
THEY DID NOT EXPLAIN AWAY EYEWITNESS REPORTS OF A SHIP BENEATH THE SITE OF THE EXPLOSION.
WONDER WHAT THE CIA WILL COME UP WITH WHEN ALL THE EVIDENCE COMES BACK TO SLAP THEM AND THE FBI IN THE FACE?
