NTSB Stands by Cause of
TWA Flight 800 Explosion

Associated Press, by Joan Lowy

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 7/3/2014 7:52:12 AM

The National Transportation Safety Board has denied a petition for reconsideration of its findings in the investigation of the 1996 crash of TWA flight 800. The board said Wednesday that a team of investigators not part of the original investigation has confirmed NTSB´s previous finding that an oxygen buildup in a partially empty fuel tank caused an explosion that destroyed the plane in-flight off the coast of Long Island, New York. The TWA 800 Project filed the petition. It says a "detonation or high-velocity explosion" could have caused the crash. Among other evidence, the group cites witnesses who say they saw a

There´s video of government employees entering the hangar where the remains of the jet was stored showing them removing and tampering with evidence. There are also quite a few witnesses separated by several miles who don´t know each other telling the same story.

In light of what our government openly does these days, what may have happened to flight 800 doesn´t seem quite so off-the-map nutty.

They pretty much reconstructed the entire air craft and there was an area that exploded out, not in as would be the case had there been a missile strike. There was an FBI agent in charge of the investigation. His name was James Fox, I think. He died of cancer a year or two later. He seemed like a man of such integrity, I can not believe he would have been a party to a cover up. I hope I am not wrong about this.

Who couldn´t agree with #1.

After all, the reputation for probity and integrity of the Clinton administration is unassailable.

Forgettttttt the multiple witnesses, the Administration that gave Eric Holder the job of vetting such pardons as Marc Rich should NOT be questioned.

Any Federal agency is dictated to by the administration in power and most Fed employees do what they are told or...
Let´s face it, Clinton corruption was well known and feared and government pensions have a profound silencing effect. Remember Ron Brown and the fake Bill Clinton tears.
No conspiracy just connecting the dots.

Keep in mind that this occurred only a few months before a presidential election. I´ve always believed the eye witnesses over the government explanation. After 4 years of Clinton´s lies, why would anyone believe a word he said? He couldn´t afford to have a terrorist attack in the US during his reelection campaign. (Benghazi, anyone?) Also, remember that we didn´t find out about Clinton´s negligence concerning Bin Laden until after 9/11/01. He completely dropped the ball on Muslim terrorism and the world is still paying for it today.

Although no comparison to Obama´s administration, Clinton´s administration was nevertheless lawless. Filegate, where Hil and Bill collected FBI files of their political enemies? Travelgate. Whitewater. Rose Law firm files. Vince Foster. Somalia. Selling the Lincoln bedroom to campqaign contributors. Monica Lewinski. Buddhist temple cash contributions. Sale of military secrets to China. etc. etc.
Does anyone really believe that Clinton would have been unable to whitewash the TWA 800 attack as an accidental explosion of its fuel tanks if he wanted to?
This almost certainly was a shoulder-fired missile attack on a passenger airline, in which Iran was involved. Whitewashing it (like the ´93 bombing of WTC, US embassy attacks, USS Cole, and other islamic terrorist attacks allowed Clinton to turn the other cheek and take no action.
Bottom line is TWA 800 WAS a terrorist attack perpetrated on US soil.

There are plenty of conspiracy theories out there and enough of them to give rise to the notion that any conspiracy theory and it´s supporters must be nuts. By allowing our default presumption to be that all are unfounded tin foil hat candidates we enable manipulation by inhibiting inquisition and free thought. Disparaging those who dare to think outside the box, even beyond what we think is reason isn´t healthy. I´d rather err on the side of doubt for the party line. We need people who are a little nuts from time to time. Occasionally we´ll need to explain to a celebrity that steel can indeed melt.

If the Clinton Administration was trustworthy then what the heck was Sandy Berger stuffing in his britches?

Lets have an experiment. Rig an airliner with explosives to instantly cut off the nose section ahead of the wings. Put it in level flight by remote control of course and then with the cameras running blow the nose off and see if you can duplicate the ridiculous zoom climb video the government investigators put out to explain all the eyewitness missile sightings. I am sure the left would be happy to underwrite the cost of this demonstration to recover their credibility!

I do not believe the NTSB report, and in any case, they did not prove their case, only said it is what they thought may have happened. Unusually, it is the only plane ever exploding in the sky from a fuel tank spark in 150 years of aviation, so questions do remain.

George Stephanopolous referred to it on-air as "the bombing" of TWA 800.

Jack Cashill has written extensively on this topic.

Interestingly, the airlines seemed to have moved flights out of the NY airports´ flight patterns further inland, so they flew over Long Island rather than out over the water along the coast. At least, that´s what people who lived there claim, based on airplane noise.

George Mason III, 42, faces murder charges after his Friday night rampage in Brooksville, Fla. A Florida man killed three relatives Friday and tried to gun down a fourth when a passing truck ran over the murderer, halting his rampage, police said.

Edward Fall, 20, accused a friend named Hollywood of shooting the two joggers in Central Park earlier this month, according to his confession. He fingered another friend, Antwan Ross, 21, as the man who shot two people — and a dog — in Midtown West with pellets on Thursday, cops said.

FERGUSON, Mo. — Police officers in Ferguson, Mo., have begun wearing body cameras after weeks of unrest about the shooting death of an unarmed black man by a white officer and sharply differing accounts of the incident, officials said yesterday. Michael Brown, 18, was shot multiple times by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, sparking nearly three weeks of angry protests in the St. Louis suburb and drawing attention to race relations in the United States. Law enforcement and witnesses gave differing accounts of what transpired before Brown was shot, with police saying the man had struggled with the officer.

After several mercifully Benghazi-free months, the 2012 attack on the diplomatic compound in Libya is about to be thrust back into the spotlight around its September 11 anniversary. The special House committee investigating Benghazi is finally expected to begin its work, in earnest, with its first hearing the week Congress returns from August recess. Meanwhile, two books promising explosive new allegations about the terror attack will hit shelves in September, and Fox News plans to air a new, one-hour documentary on the attack this week, featuring exclusive interviews with Americans who fought in the onslaught.

Sheriff’s deputies in Georgia say they foiled a bizarre smuggling scheme in which two jailed inmates used their dead grandmother’s casket to help them smuggle drugs and other contraband back into the jail. Jailers escorted Henry Ison Rouse, 27, and Nekoase Antwan Vinson, 30, in handcuffs and leg restraints to the Bentley Brothers funeral home Thursday evening to bid farewell to their grandmother. Emma Mae Faulk of Macon died last Sunday at age 74 and the prisoners were allowed a private viewing. “One of them stayed in there (with the casket) a good amount of time,” the Rev.

America’s racial divide not only remains but has deepened in some ways over the last six years, despite hopes President Obama’s election would usher in a “post-racial” America. The shooting of an unarmed black man and resulting rioting in Ferguson, Missouri, is only the latest racial flashpoint in Obama’s tenure, which has featured tense, racially-charged debates over issues like the arrest of a black Harvard professor and Obama friend in front of his house and the resulting “beer summit,” the expansion of voter ID laws, and the killing of Trayvon Martin. “We’re nowhere near a post-racial society,” says Michael Eric Dyson,

The FBI said late Monday that it was investigating leaked nude photos that targeted Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The agency told the Associated Press that it was addressing accusations that online accounts of celebrities, including Oscar-winner Lawrence, had been hacked, leading to the posting of their nude photographs online. In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP. Representatives for supermodel-turned-actress Upton, 22, and Lawrence, 24, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise, issued statements about intimate pictures which first appeared on

An anonymous hacker reportedly gained access to private photos on the Hunger Games actress’s mobile phone, and those of 100 others, via Apple’s online storage system iCloud. The 60-odd pictures of Lawrence in varying stages of undress were then posted on the bulletin board website 4chan.

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and
