Skip to comments.Was 'TWA FLIGHT 800' [1996, where 230 Americans were killed] an ISLAMIC TERROR attack?

TWA FLIGHT 800 was DOWNED in 1996 by a MISSILE, not the fuel tank! HOW MANY JOBS WERE LOST DUE TO CLINTON COVERUP?? 2002 - The GOVERNMENT COVER-UP is STILL GOING ON!
TWA Flight 800 shot down on July 16, 1996. On July 15 a communiqu was issued by Islamic jihad connected to Iraq. It read: "The mujahideen [holy warriors] will deliver the ultimate response to the threats of the foolish American president. Everyone will be amazed at the size of that response. Their time is at the morning-dawn," which corresponded to dusk in New York when TWA Flight 800 was downed. On July 18, they released another communiqu through terrorist channels in Beirut that read: "We carried out our promise with the plane attack of yesterday."
Yep. Sure was.
The fact that Billy won't release Hillarious' papers is another example of their axiom that being "Lied to and True" is their modicum!
Ain't it interestin' that Fred Thomspon is crucified for an advisor with a felony conviction but nobody asks Hillarious why she seeks advise from a Sexual Predator, Adulteror, Convicted Felon, and an all around jerk-off!
What nationality was the pilot of this flight? Does anyone recall.
Dig this... interesting that radical liberals will keep fantasy “conspiracy theories” on a real Islamic attack  but are silent on this... since it doesn't suite their agenda
I don’t but it’s very possible that it wouldn’t matter, since the theory is a missile attack.
I think I might have my plane tragedy’s confused. I was thinking of one in particular that an egyptian pilot was heard on the voice recorder (found) saying “Allah Akbar” or something of the sorts. I know I heard this somewhere. Im going to have to start researching I guess, its bugging me.
It is possible that this was done purely for internal consumption, to gratify a small clique. That would make it more like the work of Saddam who was still nursing a grudge over the 1991 war.
If al-Queda did it, won’t they have crowed about it endlessly?
Ahhh, let me think, hmmmm. YEP!
Alqaida is usually silent about their attacks. Maybe somebody admits something eventually, but they aren’t Palestinian terrorists who instantly claim every truck backfire.
That’s why I think it was more likely Saddam’s henchmen. He can pay them a big bonus and take personal gratification.
If they repeated it, even Sandy Berger couldn’t uv swept it under the rug. They don’t make rugs that big.
I believe that was a cargo plane. Although the pilots on 911 where also praying as they flew in to buildings.
I believe it was...don’t forget that happened just a few days before the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta.
If I recall correctly, that was a Middle Eastern airline with an Egyptian pilot who decided to put it into the Atlantic shortly after departure from NYC.
I think while there was definitely something covered up, if this was done by Muslim terrorists we would have heard a lot more about it. The whole point of terrorism is public perception and response. If they pulled off something like this, they couldn’t help but brag about it.
Yeah, that was a separate incident, I remember the MSM playing the “he was depressed” violin.
Absolutely, no doubt about it. I never had a thought about it otherwise.
What’s a “communiqu”? Doesn’t that just look wrong to you?
Shoe Bomb...not shot down
That was a different plane, but nearly the same time. There was also a swiss-air plane in the same area, where every life was lost. 3 planes, same area and about the same time. I think they actually all left the same airport if I’m not mistaken.
That plane, If I remember correctly, was loaded with Egyptian military officers that had been in the US, learning anti terror tactics to fight their islamists back home. TWA, Egypt Air, and Swiss’Air dc10, all three down within months, every person died. And as I mentioned earlier, think they even left the same exact airport.
Thanks, I read that. I remember back in those days, how frustrating it was, that all those plane crashes, and the stories about them, never even considered, debated the possibility of terror. Even though the cole had been bombed, the embassy bombings, and a long list of other terrorist attacks back then. They all just looked the other way...
See post 24, think we recall the same thing. In light of 9/11 it seems crazy not to reinvestigate these 3 plane wrecks.
In hindsight, it's surprising that the pilot didn't turn the plane around and head towards a Manhattan skyscraper, but perhaps the copilot fought him. Not sure if the complete translation of the black box recording was released to the public.
Then there was the 9/11/2000 incident in Florida which I'm convinced was a covered up terrorist incident by the same cell that hit exactly one year later. I think the ID of that pilot was found in the car of one of the 9/11 hijackers in Boston after the 2001 attacks.
I don’t recall the Florida incident. Do you have any links to additional info?
Thanks, interesting read. Haven’t finished it, but it sounds more like a training accident than a deliberate attack. I don’t doubt the guy in the Cherokee was part of the plot, but it’s hard to hit a twin in something like that.
Before anyone knew the identity of the plane crash victims, 10 Muslims were at the scene of the crash, deep inside an orange grove, praying over Bukhari’s wreckage. This wasn’t even in the neighborhood where they lived, they traveled there to watch the crash happen.
It was covered up because the public would refuse to fly if they knew Muslims were deliberately crashing planes into other planes. There would be public demands that would lead to profiling and grounding of small aircraft. That is my take on it and I’ve given it a lot of thought and investigation.
Do you think they ever expected us to fight back, in Afghanistan and Iraq? Wonder what Gore would have done?
I think Gore has stated that he would have waged war on Afghanistan, but not Iraq. Of course, who knows, and maybe his idea of war is like Clinton’s, some cruise missiles and call it good.
If I would write that site I would spell it “Communique”.
I very much doubt this. WDYT?
I don't buy the gov't's explanation. IIRC, more than 200 folks on and off Long Island, NY saw the exhaust from a surface to air missile make the interception.
No it was not!!! If it was than we would know it by now. This is about the same as Elvis sightings and UFO’s. Get off this ridiculous notion. We have only been hit twice once in 1941 and 2001 (on soil). Hopefully we never will again but it seems like every 60 years we are hit. We are already on year 7.
Adding a new level of intrigue to the investigation is the fact that the video in question appears to have been shot on July 12, 1996, five days before the crash.Gee, I wonder why this video analysis wasn't admitted into evidence? The video supposedly showing this missile was shot five days before the flight and crash. The guy writing the page makes this sound like a smoking gun.

Jack Cashill’s theory: most likely Saddam; definitely a cover up.
