Posted on 06/19/2013 6:57:17 AM PDT by Menehune56
A new film claims the official government report on the crash of TWA Flight 800 in 1996 is an elaborate fabrication, but the most shocking part of the story is that charges are being leveled by some of the very investigators who put the report together. Six experts who appear in the film were members of the National Transportation Safety Board investigation team that concluded the crash was an accident, but they now claim they were silenced by their superiors. The movies, "TWA Flight 800" will debut on EPIX TV next month, on the 17-year anniversary of the crash.

The headline implies these are official investigators.
If this turns out to be true, as I suspect it will, a lot of people will owe Joe Farah an apology.
I will never forget the face of James Kahlstrom, what I consider to be one of the most evil men in our nation’s history.
Original investigators... from 96.
...anyone over 12 who’s ever built a RC plane could have told you years ago, if the nose falls off an aircraft during flight the CG (center of gravity) is gone, and the plane will NOT CLIMB....
It’s true. We’ve known for a decade and a half that pock marks on the exterior of the aircraft could not have been made by an interior explosion.
The front wheel well door was blown in, not out.
There was a guy that took the lead in the private investigation, and I’m drawing a blank on his name right now (which I feel terrible about, he did such good detailed work), and he compiled enough information to make it clear the official ruling was just laughable.
Kahlstrom thought he really had us hoodwinked. He was an utter fool. We had his number within days. He never fooled anyone. He just helped destroy himself number one, and our faith in our own government number two.
The official ruling on TWA 800, was such a farce, that it was downright laughable.
They were trying to protect Muslims back then too? Yes I am assuming that it was them!
Are you thinking of William Donaldson?:
It was on Clinton’s watch. He didn’t want any terrorist attacks, either. And really, after all these years -— WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE???
Hey good morning Alan. Yes it was Donaldson.
Hope things are going good for you.
Everyone deserves the truth. There’s a little town in Central PA that still hasn’t recovered from this, and deserves it even more.
I too believed from day one that there was a government cover up and I am by no means a conspiratorialist. Clinton was in office and he had motive.
This was Bill Clinton's Benghazi.
This occurred in July 1996 months before Clinton's reelection bid in November. There was every reason to believe Clinton's goons covered this up so as not to mess up his reelection bid. And there was ample precedent of the Clinton WH thugs doing things like this.
Too many highly credible eye witnesses saw a missile streak through the sky. Some terrorist with a Manpad or Stinger did this. Alternatively, it was a US Naval mishap, though this seems less possible.
There was a lot of talk at the time of a “streak of light” that went from the beaches in Jersey to where the plane was climbing at the moment of the explosion. The media dropped the whole “SAM incident” question VERY quickly.
If a Dem’s in office, you can expect to be lied to. Hell, anymore, if a Rep’s in office, you can expect the same but at least the media will troll the conspiracy theories.
then you built a really crappy plane.
BTW: Thanks for the link.
Everybody I know thinks that plane was shot down by a shoulder fired weapon. Numerous people saw a rocket trail. I never understood why they covered it up.
Without such protection of Islamic terrorism
THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN NO 911 ATROCITIES,
NO BOSTON ATROCITIES,
NO BENGHAZI ATROCITIES,
NO HASAN ATROCITIES,
NO COLE MURDERER RELEASE ATROCITIES,
etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.
But there was, and so it has gone.
Obama has just returned service on the Clintons for however much of the current stuff was leaked by them.
Everything I ever needed to know about the Democrat Party I learned by watching reruns of The Sopranos.
Because it occurred in July 1996, months before Clinton’s reelection. This was Clinton’s Benghazi!
“Obama has just returned service on the Clintons for however much of the current stuff was leaked by them.”
Yup! I just said something to this effect to my wife after seeing the thread headline. President ValJar does not play nice nice!
An aeronautical engineer once told me that an essential quality of all aviation fuels is that in the fuel tanks, the air-fuel mixture above the fuels must not be ignitable. Fortunately, for all fuels used in transportation, the mixture is not ignitable.
Air-fuel mixtures are not ignitable if the air-to-fuel-vapor mixture is either too high or too low.
I’m thinking that the air-fuel vapor mixture above jet fuel in a tank is not ignitable. If that’s the case then the NTSB explanation for the flight 800 explosion might not be correct.
I remember it well. They never fooled us with their stupid report.
This goes to show how the entire Federal government and the Corporate Media can come together and cover-up the deaths of Americans and totally get away with it using an "official story" that doesn't stand the least bit scrutiny.
Jack Cashill was on top of this from the get-go. He wrote a book and produced a video. But, better late than never - someone’s out to trash the Trash know as the Clintoons. I am for anything that keeps that woman from running for POTUS.
If the center fuel tank on this 747 spontaneously exploded, then why don’t fuel tanks on tens of millions of autos that have an open fuel pump sitting in gasoline also explode on hot summer days?
TWA 800 was destroyed by an external cause, and the rush to ignore and suppress evidence to that effect is entirely consistent with the Clinton Administration’s pattern of forcing major events in an approved political and ideological framework that could be molded at least to not damage their Agenda, and hopefully to advance it.
That was the case when the first attempt to destroy the World Trade Center was treated as a domestic crime instead of the act of war that it was. The same might be said for the OKC BOMB.
If it was shot down by terrorists how come nobody claimed the action? This would have been the first and only time a commercial jet was shot out of the sky and the organization that was responsible suffers lockjaw for 17 years?
I think not.
It’s spelled Kallstrom, and I agree. But Brennan is giving him a run for his money
My neighbor, a ret’d NYPD Loo was an FAA investigator in 96. He told me over a few Jacks that it was clealry a malfunction. But my friend’s brother was actually flying his single Beechcraft out of Gabreski that night and saw the contrails jutting up toward the 747. He followed them till impact. In his opinion there was no doubt. He had not seen contrails spiraling downward fom the blast as investigators told him. he’d seen something climbing up and impacting the 747. 17 years later he still knows what he saw. How to explain my neighbor? His opinion was based on seeing the reconstructed plane out in at the then Grumman facility in Calverton. Which pieces went into that reconstruction were from 800 and which were replacement parts only a few know. I often remark on these threads that that evening about 8ish Bernie Shaw was reporting on the matter on CNN and he brought up Wolf Blitzer who was then WH correspondent, reporting from the WH. Blitzer said Clinton would speak to the nation at 10PM. Why would POTUS speak about an air accident? The POTUS speech never happened. The Olympics were to begin in 3 weeks in Atlanta and Clinton was running for reelection. No one in the administration wanted to defend allowing a US airliner to be destroyed 14,000 feet over the Hamptons by terrorist or terrorists unknown. Hence the coverup and the willing continuation of that coverup by successive administrations.One hand washes the other.
Hillary better have bus undercarriage insurance, stay away from Fort Marcy Park, and be careful when flying...
“Im thinking that the air-fuel vapor mixture above jet fuel in a tank is not ignitable. “
Not only that but when the Air Force tried to test that theory the ONLY way they could get an explosion is when they added propane to the tank.
A year or two after the crash, at a women’s conference, I had lunch with the mother of one of the victims. After we had discussed the topic for a few minutes, I asked her what her conclusions were concerning the cause, and she flatly stated that it was a Navy test gone terribly wrong. From all that she and her family had seen and heard as people directly associated with the tragedy, they felt that it was a no-brainer and that the government should have just admitted it. I found it very interesting.
Thanks for the proper spelling. I’m not sure who Brennan is.
I’ll want to read this later.
I had forgotten about the Rush take on Kallstrom. That was a disappointment.
I agree with your comments. That’s how I see it also.
Thanks for the photo.
It’s amazing how they can put the thing back together like that.
John O. Brennan...the guy who scrubbed Zer0’s passport records, was his lead “anti-terrorism” guy and now the head of the CIA.
President Kennedy’s former press secretary Pierre Salinger went public an stated that he knew that it was downed by the U.S. Navy off the coast. I remember it well.
Watch this. All these people (former admirals, fighter pilots and witnesses) state it was a missile.
Maybe, just maybe, the aluminum foil hat doesn’t suggest paranoia?
Also re Kallstrom....HE was the guy who kept pushing “the white supremicists are doing it” story during the DC Sniper attacks.
There was a lot of talk at the time of a streak of light that went from the beaches in Jersey to where the plane was climbing at the moment of the explosion. The media dropped the whole SAM incident question VERY quickly.I Remember seeing live interviews that night (within minutes of the crash) from people on boats that saw the strak(s) going UP to the plane.
It seems like for some unusual reason there were a lot of people out on boats that night.
I don’t trust anything government tells us. And they are skilled at covering up.
However, there is no proof of anything at all here.
Okay thank you. He had slipped through on me.
Not on this one...
Listened to Rush in those days with some regularity. He bought into the Kahlstrom BS bigtime. From that point forward I became much more skeptical of Rushbo.
This occurred in July 1996 months before Clinton's reelection bid in November.
That and the Atlanta Summer Olympics were just weeks away.
Yeah, I had forgotten about that. What a brain-trust.
Most plausible explanantion from the fertile mind of Cletus (only because it would make a great scene from a movie like a Bond flik).
USGove was selling shoulder-fired rocketry to a middle-eastern client (IIRC, Arafat was in toen at the time?). To help seal-the-deal, they took advantage of the military exercise of the coast of Jersey whereby the ME client could shoot the rocket at a dummy-target. No one would think twice about an explosion involving an already specified target in war games.
The ME client took advantage of a passenger plane takking off nearby instead of the target on the water.
USGov attempted to resolve the problem by following the “Three S’s”.
