Skip to comments.On this day in History: TWA 800 and the Clinton’s Cover Up
Posted on 07/17/2007 11:34:29 AM PDT by V.Foster
On this day in history TWA was downed - witnesses saw a streak of smoke like a trailing missile hit TWA 800.
If you believe the "official story" about TWA 800 that the Clinton Administration forced on the public with the help of the FBI and CIA you need to read this book and listen to all of the witnesses.
Im convinced that this was an terrorist strike on our Airlines. Bill Clinton wanted this story to go away, so a "Center Fuel Tank" story was hatched, Janet Reno with the help of FBI and the CIA ran with this story. The last thing Bill Clinton wanted to do was tackle a BIG problem like Terrorism. He wanted to "kick that can" down the road.
270 Witnesses saw something different than the official story!
Read it - Watch Video - Pass it along
Vince Foster? I thought you were dead.
Wasn’t it right after 9/11 that George Stephanopoulos referred to the “TWA 800 bombing” during a TV interview?
Yes, it was.
Not to mention those papers that went missing after a vist by Sandy burgler.....
If this really was a terrorist attack covered up, then Bush is in on the coverup. There’s no way the coverup could block information getting to the next administration. When Bush came in, his people would have to know.
So is that what you’re saying? That Bush, too, is covering up a major terror attack on American soil?
On one hand there are a lot of odd circumstances surrounding this crash that lend to there being a conspiracy to cover up an attack. On the other, if a terrorist group was responsible they certainly would have taken credit for it.
A good friend of mine works for NTSB and was involved in the investigation. He swears there was NO coverup. I DO NOT believe him!
Interesting enough, last night I started re-reading Nelson Demille’s “Night Fall”. I’d forgotten the anniversary date of Flight 800 until last night.
Then there was the Egyptian Airline taken over by a pilot who yelled Allah Akbar as he put the plane in a downward spin. Not terrorism there either.
I’m glad somebody posted that.
Maybe, but not if they were planning something way larger in the future, as we now know they did.
LOL! I’ll send you some - I buy the heavy-duty.
Tin Foil is Tin Foil, Liberal or Conservative. No thanks.
Sparks from defectively insulated wires have been tied to several different aviation mishaps. Given all the people that were involved in this mishap investigation I find it impossible they could all be silenced. Not even Klintoon could kill that many people and get away with it.
My opinion is that Bush was on his “New Tone” kick and probably let it pass.
I personally think if you are the new President and you have information that would break apart the CIA, FBI and a former President - what do you do? The liberals HATE him so much that they would have said it was a bunch of lies, and that Bush was just trying to damage the Democrats.
Hell, their is enough info about Clinton dropping the ball on events leading up to the September terrorist attacks - Bush didn’t say a thing nor fight for himself during the sham commission with Jamie Gorrelik at the lead.
And this is the same elements in the CIA that are trying to destroy President Bush.
“On the other, if a terrorist group was responsible they certainly would have taken credit for it.”
I believe July 17th is the anniversary of the founding of the Iraqi Baath party. An oblique calling card was left but for obvious reasons the responsible party didn’t take credit.
Seems odd and a bit hard for me to believe that a "spark" would blow a plane up the way that one was.
The video that they initially started showing with what looked to be an exhaust trail leading to the plane is also hard to get over!
You’re not really paying attention, are you?
The career beauracrats in places like the CIA have been at war with Bush since he came into office. The CIA keeps secrets from the adminitration all the time. Why would they feel a need to let Bush in on this one?
Go check the book “First Strike” out at your library and read it, then get back with me on the tin foil hat jabs.
"No hay nada ver aquí, para andar por."
In the movie, "Independence Day," the POTUS is taken to Area 51, and is shown the recovered ship and remains from Roswell. When asked why he was told nothing of it, the fictional CIA Director tells him, "Plausible deniability, sir."
I'm certainly not suggesting the government is holding alien remains, or even that Flight 800 was shot down (I've read strong pro and con arguments). I am suggesting that career bureucrats and holdovers (i.e. George Tenet, Norm Minetta)probably don't share all the bad news or big secrets...I don't mean this simply between Clinton and Bush, but most likely between all administrations to one degree or another. I think it's naive to think otherwise.
I used to believe that there was a cover up too. I was convinced that once Clinton left office the truth would be revealed. I even know people who saw something odd that evening. However, the more I wait, the more I see, and I'm convinced that there is no cover up. A cover up would have to be massive, and we Americans are incapable of keeping our mouths shut about anything much less something this explosive (excuse me, no pun or disrespect intended). It would be impossible. If you are willing to believe this are you also willing to believe a plot to bring down the towers? Do you want to go through life sounding like Rosie O'Nutbar?
Neither you nor anyone else has ever been able to post any such "streak" or "missile" pictures. They don't exist.
Read the report of witnesses Sven Faret & Ken Wendell and see if you can figure out for yourself why the streak was descending.
I’m just passing along information - information about what a lot of people saw happen that evening.
If you have a gripe take it up with them, read that book, something very odd and heavy handed was happening in that investigation.
That's better than accepting at face value explanations that simply don't make sense...like the government trying to make you believe an aircraft made a maneuver which defies the law of gravity...or a man shot himself in a park when he didn't have a gun.
It WAS a terrorist attack and so was Egypt Air flight 990.
Rosie O’ Nutbar? I LOVE that. :)
Having experience with aviation fuels while in the USAF,it seems very unlikely that a full fuel tank would ignite 7 explode upon climb to cruising altitude. The most dangerous conditions for fuel tank explosions are those that are partially filled or almost empty from the just right mixture of fuel, air and a source of combustion.Something does not smell right concerning the official cause of the TWA Flight 800 destruction.
I think it’s naive to think that this could have been kept secret from the next administration. From the American people, possible. From the next administration, I don’t believe so.
But remember we can't trust them, because eyewitnesses are notoriously wrong. I know this because the Clinton administration told me so. Or did they make an exception for these people?
TWA Flight 800 Articles by Jack Cashill:
Good point!... The 911 Commission was a completely transparent set up which Bush&co. went right along with and even only slapped the hand of a cirminal destroyer of classified documents. Why????? The Oklahoma City bombing has many unanswered questions yet the current administration continues to give cover to that sham. Why????
Is it still a conspiracy theory if there is truth to the cover up?
The center fuel tank was empty.
I think one must concede that the dems in general, and the clinton admin in particular, are, and have been willing to put advancement of their own agenda ahead of the well-being of the nation. Having said that, I think it’s more than likely that the incoming Bush Cabinet was misled, lied to, or kept in the dark wherever necessary or possible to prevent embarrasment to Billary...
I’ve heard this story ... isn’t it the one where
- Lyndon Johnson, Bobby Kennedy and Fidel Castro were the gunmen on the grassy knoll;
-George W. Bush faked 9-11 (with the clever use of holograms and demolition explosives)
- the Pentagon was hit with a missile - not a plane
- and the New Orleans levees were destroyed (also with demolition explosives) just to randomly kill black people ...
The truth is out there. What do you think, Scully?
Personally - I think Lex Luthor is behind the whole thing.
Of course the difference being that over 200 people actually WITNESSED something heading in the direction of that plane before it exploded.
If there were numerous witnesses to men on the grassy knoll, or men planting explosives in the towers, or black-clad operatives planting explosives under the levees, or that many witnesses actually saw a plane hit the Pentagon...then those theories would also have some merit.
There are “scientific” studies about a “magic bullet” with witness statements about a gunman on the grassy knoll, hearing shots from multiple directions, etc ...
There are Pilots, Academics, etc. for “9-11 Truth” claiming the scientific impossibility of a skyscraper collapsing after being hit with a 747 - including witness statements about “flashes” which would presumably be the set explosives meant to demolish the WTC ...
There are people that claim to be able to “prove” that the moon landing was shot on a soundstage ...
Crazy Louie claims to have SEEN the craters from the demolition of the levees ...
People claim all KINDS of things ... even witnesses. Perception is a tricky thing, particularly when events happen quickly, and involve technology that eyewitnesses may not understand.
Bill Clinton was WRONG about a LOT of things ... but, he isn’t a traitor to his country. Stuff like this makes conservatives look no different from the “9-11 Truth” wackos ... its just we attack the other party.
I didn’t say I believe the theories that the airliner was blown up. I’m merely saying something is fishy. I’m also saying there’s way more plausability to over 200 witnesses than there are a couple guys in their basement “proving” a controlled demolition on 9/11.
One example being those “flashes”. Any sane person who looks at the collapse knows those “flashes” are the dust popping out as each floor collapses on the one beneath.
Also, it’s very condescending (a liberal trait) to say to over 200 witnesses that they don’t “understand” what they saw.
I have been reading all the cute “tin foil hat” and “Rosie O Nutbar” responses. They are, as I said, cute.
However, Mr G and I were watching the coverage on the evening when it happened. We both watched a video from a wedding... you know, the Great Aunt Tillie video where she says “you were cute as a bug in a rug and aren’t you a big girl now”, video that is shot during the reception. While G.A.T. was talking, you could see the smoke trail from something going up behind her and short seconds later an explosion. The news people showed it several times, and pointed out the trail, talking about a missle.
Then it disappeared from the airwaves. We never saw it again. We never heard it referred to again. Now, since both of us saw it, and since it was repeated, do you (the general doubters, not you V Foster) want to call us nutbars?
As hard as slick worked to cover his issues while in office, including bombing another country to distract from M. Lewinski, I have no doubt that he would work that hard to hide this.
Thanks for signing up in the last month to “debunk” stuff that has been FR for just about 10 years and discussed at a mature level.
According to whom? On a flight to Europe?
>> Also, its very condescending (a liberal trait) to say to over 200 witnesses that they dont understand what they saw.
No need to talk down, professor. Misquoting is also a fairly common “liberal trait”. What I ACTUALLY said was the following ...
“Perception is a tricky thing, particularly when events happen quickly, and involve technology that eyewitnesses may not understand.”
I said they didn’t understand the technology - which most, if not all, certainy didn’t. I didn’t realize that we were talking about “200 witnesses” that were also aviation experts who dabble in missile technology. That’s not talking down ... I don’t understand aviation technology either - the NTSB, on the other hand, does.
>> I didnt say I believe the theories that the airliner was blown up. Im merely saying something is fishy.
The inevitable “out” of conspiracy theorists ... I don’t really BELIEVE any of this, but “something’s fishy”. Didn’t Rep. Ellison (the first Muslim Congressman) say virtually the SAME THING about the Bush-orchestrated 9-11 conspiracy yesterday?
“I’m not saying [Sept. 11] was a [U.S.] plan, or anything like that, because, you know, that’s how they put you in the nut-ball box dismiss you.” [End quote]
... but something’s fishy.
