Why Congress Must Reopen
the TWA 800 Investigation

American Thinker, by Jack Cashill

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 7/7/2014 6:59:07 AM

On July 2, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) announced that it would not reopen the investigation into the destruction of TWA 800. This was the Boeing 747 that was blown out of the sky ten miles south of the Long Island coast on July 17, 1996, killing all 230 people on board. The TWA 800 Project, a team of former aviation investigators and scientists, had petitioned the NTSB to examine evidence that pointed toward a missile strike on the airline. Not surprisingly, the NTSB, which had invested four years of resources to prove some other theory, any other theory, chose

The Clinton years were full of lies and deceptions. Clinton was too busy playing the field chasing women to be bothered by terrorist attacks like this. He did nothing to curtail terrorism except "wag the dog". As a direct result of his weakness, 9/11 occurred. Look where we are now; Hillary wants to be the leader of the "free" world. Keep up the good work, Jack Cashill. We need more investigative and honest men courageous enough to print the truth.

I believe that TWA 800 was indeed attacked by terrorists, without a doubt.

I´ve read the books, listened to initial news reports and listened to eyewitness accounts.

The biggest proof that the attack is being covered up is that the FBI and CIA were involved and took over. They pushed the NTSB aside.

FBI agents were caught inside the hanger. changing evidence tags on plane parts in the middle of the night.

FBI´s entire theory, doesn´t make any sense, it´s a cover up.

I heard a guy talk about this a few years ago. He grew up on LI and goes back every year or so. He claims a few people in his hometown swear they saw a missile take it down. It was a summer evening and a lot of people were outdoors. Living near airport a jet leaving is background noise. Very few people looked up. This guy is no crack pot. He said people in hte town think it´s a cover up. Not sure of town but as a teen years ago he worked summers at a huge Pratt and Whitney plant. Just passing it along.

For TWA 800 they created a phony video to convince the public it wasn´t an act that was caused by the president´s failure to take Islamic terrorism seriously.

For Benghazi, they blamed an existing video to try to convince the public it wasn´t an act that was caused by the president´s failure to take Islamic terrorism seriously.

Nothing to see here folks.....move along quietly now...

Read DeMille´s " Nightfall" for an entertaining but terrifying take on this cover-up.
\
During the run-up to Geo W Bush´s inauguration, George Stehanopolous was a member of a live TV panel doing a retrospective on the important issues during the Clinton years, the war room, etc. In that he counted, among the serious events, the " Bombing of TWA 800".
It can still be found on the internet.

The weight of evidence clearly points to a missile. But it was not a terrorist, it was an errant missile from a malfunctioning system on a US Destroyer. The same automatic missile system had malfunctioned before and fired on an unintended target.

Eye witnesses saw the strike. I thought it very strange that they were being ignored.

Remember, Clinton was offered Bin Laden and refused to accept him claiming he had no grounds to "arrest" him.

When Clinton ran for President the first time all mention of foreign affairs disappeared from the news and he never mentioned it. No one seemed to notice. The Democrat´s handling of foreign affairs had, through the years, been so poor he did not want to touch it.

I was at the accident site less than two hours after the crash. There was a navy vessel there. I can´t think of any bases that are within two hours. The theory back then was that a p3 submarine killer (not sure on name) was doing exercises with destroyer and submarines. If you look at the aeronautical maps it clearly says missle range on them (or they used to). I also had a friend swimming in the ocean who saw the event begining to end. It was a missile.

I simply cannot accept the fact that the U.S. Navy fired a surface-to-air missile - accidentally or otherwise - that downed a U.S. airliner and got away with it. Too many good people would have been part of the launch for it to have been covered up. More plausible is a muslim terrorist firing something like a leftover Stinger delivered to Afghanistan by the CIA from a small vessel. At the time, I wrote off Pierre Salinger as a total crackpot but 9/11 has made us all realize the sophistication and extremes to which our enemies are willing to go.

Bad guys can obtain SAMs too. It wouldn´t take a lot of high tech weaponry to take a climbing aircraft out of the sky. We had the "Red Eye" missile back in my day in the military, and I´m sure the Russians/Chinese have their version on the black market for sale to the highest bidder. A terrorist plus a boat is all one needs to do the act. As I recall, there were a lot of people who were ticked off at the USA, namely Khadafi and Hussein. Had our military done it, the word would have slipped out by now. Were it a coverup by the FBI/CIA then it would remain quiet for good.

We need to fight the enemies we have now, not the ones who might have existed in the past. I can think of other suspicious acts, other planes that have gone down, other attacks by those who hate us, other good people who have died under suspicious circumstances. We will never know the past completely but we can deal with things that will threaten our future.

Great and very well-informed Ldotter comments. One thing I haven´t seen mentioned, though, is the fact that 1996 was a Presidential election year. In retrospect 1996 and 2012 have a common thread - a Clinton who wasn´t exactly truthful about events during their tenures as President and Secretary of State. Truth about events could have affected the election outcomes, if the Clintons´ incompetence and lack of understanding the motives of America´s enemies had been shown to the American people.

IMHO, Americans should never, ever allow a Clinton to have such powers again.

At a future date they may be needed , but now we have a bunch of progressives putting the American people in more and more danger. The clearest way ahead is voting them out of power. This is an election year. We need to get the grassroots´ vote out. The progressives have their mantra of "TEA Party is racist" being sung from church rafters. I know because I hear it!

Pierre Salinger was appointed Press Secretary for the Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson Administrations. In the late 90´s he insisted that TWA flight 800 was shot down by a missile 12 miles off of Long Island after takeoff. If I remember right he said someone gave him pictures of the missile trail and strike they had taken that night and he wanted the investigation reopened.

My wife and I were waiting for a flight out of JFK one day and guess who was sitting across from us also waiting for another flight. He looked like he had the weight of the world on his shoulders and I bet the NTSB was pressuring him to keep his mouth shut. I believed him then and I still do.

This was a clinton cover up. He managed to portray the Oklahoma bombing as domestic terror whether it was or not which became solid political gold for the RATS. Any foreign terrorists shooting down an airliner would go against the RATS. That is why this cover up was done. This and Benghazi prove that with presidential backing a cover up can be done even though there must be a lot of people in on the secret with first hand knowledge. There are many who dismiss these cases as tin foil hats because so many would know the truth and would have to be in on the cover up. This is no longer the case because of too much presidential power and too widespread corruption of officials who cannot afford to do the right thing and loose their jobs.

Navy used 47 Tomahawks last night,
47% of planned 2015 purchases
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 9/23/2014 9:23:50 AM     Post Reply
Last night’s air strikes against ISIS in Syria used up 47 Tomahawk missiles. The Tomahawk is an extremely effective weapon, capable of delivering its ordnance precisely, without risking a pilot’s life. But the defense cuts of the Obama administration call for procuring only one hundred Tomahawks next year. Christopher Cavas of Defense News reported last May: Weapons procurement showed striking reductions from last year’s plans. Then, the Navy planned to buy 980 Tactical Tomahawks, the primary cruise missile in use throughout the fleet. The new plan shows only 100 missiles in 2015 and none thereafter.

ince the U.S. is largely moderate to conservative, it was hard to imagine how someone as far left as Barack Obama twice won the presidency. After the election was over, we learned how the Democrats’ data mining operation succeeded in bringing to the polls the outlying constituencies he needed to win (given the normally low turnout of the rest of the voters). Part of that mining for voters involved targeting messages designed to emotionally appeal to them, given that “belief” once formed in these peoples’ minds defeats any rational arguments. The big (and unfortunately successful) target of these emotional appeals was

The National Security Advisor of the United States did something astonishing yesterday. In the middle of a reporter’s questioning, she bolted from the podium of the White House pressroom, saying, “Nice to see you,” fleeing a situation she evidently was unable to cope with. The question that caused Ms. Rice to flee was a fairly simple one: whether or not the president has authorized the bombing of targets in Syria. Rice responded multiple times that the timing of strikes would not be released, but that was not the question at hand, and reporters pressed her on whether her boss had authorized

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.
