FBI suppressed video of TWA explosion
Recovered debris from TWA 800
More than six years after retired United Airline captain Ray Lahr launched his Freedom of Information Act petition into the fate of TWA Flight 800, the FBI has shown him likely by accident one seriously smoking gun.
The Boeing 747 blew up off the coast of Long Island on July 17, 1996. One of the FBI documents received recently by Lahr and his attorney details a communication that took place six days after the crash:
"The FBI guy who looked at this must not have read it, or not have realized what it would reveal, Otherwise he would have redacted most of it as before."

Ever hear of the Liberty?
I have heard other reports of seeing the missile coming from out at sea.
I wonder if our navy may have been involved but in trying to intercept the missile before it hit the plane.
The NTSB witness group reviewed the summaries and determined that the documents contained 736 witness accounts. Of these, the group determined that 670 witness reported seeing something that probably related to the accident, and 250 reported hearing something that was likely related to the accident. 258 accounts were characterized as “streak-of-light” witnesses (”an object moving in the sky...variously described [as] a point of light, fireworks, a flare, a shooting star, or something similar.”) Of these 258 witnesses, 38 reported that the streak was ascending vertically or nearly so, 18 indicated that it originated from the surface of the earth, and 7 reported that it originated at the horizon.
599 witnesses reported a fireball; of these 264 reported seeing the fireball originate, 200 reported seeing the fireball split into two fireballs, and 217 reported observing the fireball hit the surface of the water, or disappear below the horizon. 210 witnesses reported seeing both a fireball and a streak of light.
The government (both Clinton and Bush Justice Depts.) surpressed outside lab findings from reputable labs that they themselves use in cases, former military pilots' testimony, individual private pilots, witnesses who had absolutely no reason to lie about seeing the exact same thing, miles apart who never met, spoke nor even knew of one another's existence, reassigned navy personnel who were on duty in area, out of the country for years.
Sounds like perhaps a little CYA of people
Hi cgk, regardless of the source of the post the same comments and questions have come from others over the years.
Some questions need answering.
We don’t keep secrets very well.
Something like this, impossible to keep secret.
So, 5 days before the airliner goes down, someone sees something that sorta looks like a SAM. So a SAM must've brought down the plane nearly a week later? Where is the logic in this reasoning? I'm sure in the week preceding the crash someone thinks they saw Elvis too. So does that mean it was obviously Elvis that shot it down?
Did the cardinal have a specific issue with Clinton (this was pre-Lewinsky, but post-Gennifer Flowers and a thousand others) or did he just detest him because Clinton is a miserable excuse for a human being?
Thanks for the name of Mohammed Ferrat. Just a quick search on google reveals a lot. Clinton was something else.
If we always deny that a terrorist has shot down a plane, then we render the terrorists’ attacks useless—because their acts of terror will never be known.
There may be a consensus about this among governments, IMHO.
Some of us KNOW it was a missle. Actually, a lot of folks know. Worked at a defense contractor at the time. It wasn’t a manpad, it was test of an anti-missile system..... thus the supression. Would have killed off a big company the defense department depends on.
I keep hearing about a streak of flame approaching TWA-800. This is not commensurate with a MANPAD.
Also, such air defense systems would home in on the exhaust, resulting in an engine being hit and not the center of the plane. One such missile hitting a 747 engine might not be enough to bring the plane down.
TWA-800 was barely inside the range of such defense systems when the incident occurred.
I will listen to “conspiracy theories” if they seem to have merit.
He also disliked Clintons stand on life issues.
Does Jack Cashill know about this?
I don’t think there are many ppl left who believe the official story. Put it in the context of terrorism in the 90’s, like ‘Path To 9/11 did.
To know the truth you have to think like Perry Mason was portrayed in his shows. Back then, it was called thinking for yourself, not conspiracy :^)
***”When George Stephanopolis was already a network commentator after coming from the Clinton administration he was discussing the issue of terrorist acts. He rattled off a list of terrorist events which had occurred during the last 10 years. He included TWA Flight 800.***
Beats being embarrassed by you ignorance, doesn’t it?
Any idea where the only other two center fuel tank explosions in aviation history happened? (hint: they’re both terrorist hotbeds)
Do some homework. Don’t be a chump all your life. TWA 800 was an obvious terror attack.
John Kerry also called it an attack twice on national television inside of two weeks (9/11 on Larry King, 9/14 on Hardball).
