I know a lot of people who thought this was a coverup. Maybe it was!
In a new documentary, former investigators who looked into the mysterious crash of TWA Flight 800, which killed 230, are breaking their silence to claim that the explosion that brought down the plane in 1996 was likely no accident, and that the final report on the cause of the blast was falsified.
TWA Flight 800 exploded in mid-air on July 17, 1996 about 11 minutes after taking off from New York’s JFK airport on its way to Paris. Though theories abounded as to what happened to the plane — from a bomb on the aircraft to it being struck by a missile or even a meteorite — the National Transportation Safety Board concluded after a four-year investigation that the probable cause of the crash was an accidental fuel tank explosion. The NTSB said it could not be sure what exactly ignited the blast, but “of the sources evaluated by the investigation, the most likely was a short circuit outside of the [fuel tank] that allowed excessive voltage to enter it through electrical wiring…”

But according to the new documentary, named TWA Flight 800 and premiering on Epix next month, six former members of the official crash investigation have stepped forward to refute the NTSB’s findings, saying the crash report was purposefully falsified, and to claim the investigation was “systematically undermined” by federal authorities.
“We didn’t find any part of the airplane that indicated a mechanical failure,” one of the whistleblowers says in a trailer for the film. The former officials allege the explosion came from outside the plane, though they don’t speculate any further on the original source.
Was Dick Cheney hunting with a missile launcher that day?

Secrecy. It’s so much better when we’re lied to.
Al Qaeda told Clinton that they were going to take down a passenger plane if he didn’t get U.S. troops out of Saudi Arabia.
Yes and Al Qaeda is so notoriously tight lipped about its successes. I don’t see anything new in the evidence. There is no physical evidence of an external explosion either. Remember in Lockerbie they found pocking, explosive residue and pieces of detonator, as well as a breeched storage compartment. An errant missile from a Navy training exercise? Too many would know and that would have leaked. With 230 dead, do you really believe TWA and Boeing took one for the team and rolled over to an exploding fuel compartment, when it was a missile?
