Brand-new TWA 800 film to finally spill beans? (exposed corruption behind original investigation)
WND ^ | June 19, 2013 | Jack Cashill

Posted on 06/20/2013 6:12:02 AM PDT by Perseverando

Seventeen years after the Paris-bound TWA Flight 800 blew up off the coast of Long Island, producers Tom Stalcup and Kristina Borjesson have released a new documentary –simply titled “TWA Flight 800” – that has the very real potential to re-open the investigation into the plane’s destruction.

Kudos, in particular, to Stalcup. A Ph.D. physicist by background, he has dedicated the last 16 years of his life to exposing what is arguably the most flagrant government cover-up in American peacetime history.

Borjesson has likewise been involved from the beginning. As a producer at CBS in 1996 when TWA 800 was destroyed, she sacrificed her future at CBS to get at the truth. Together, they have produced a documentary that is compelling, convincing and, finally, deeply moving.

Jack Cashill and James Sanders exposed the corrupt TWA 800 investigation in their book “First Strike” — get it now at WND’s Superstore

The producers made two strategic moves to force the media to look seriously at their conclusions. One was to rely heavily on the testimony of a half-dozen highly credible whistleblowers from within the investigation.

The second was to avoid politics. When James Sanders and I produced the video documentary “Silenced” on this subject 12 years ago and the book “First Strike” two years after that, we made the marketing mistake of identifying the logic of the cover-up.

That logic led to the White House. Sixteen years ago, in the home stretch of a difficult re-election campaign, Bill Clinton faced a problem very similar to one that Barack Obama would face in 2012. This is something the media did not want to know, let alone share.

An event took place that threatened the “peace and

Interesting that this comes up now, when Bill Clinton is firing broadsides at The Won over his foreign policy.

Flight 800 was a Clinton cover-up.

It's exposure would torpedo Hillary's 2016 dreams.

I don't doubt there was a coverup of some kind, but I wonder who did it? Wouldn't terrorists have claimed responsibility if involved?

“It’s exposure would torpedo Hillary’s 2016 dreams. “

Dream on.

The MSM has decided that the beast will be the next prez.

In addition, Chelsea has “declared” that it’s time for a woman. (Although one could make a solid case that the beast is not a real woman..... :-) .....)

So, the future has been locked in...unless...CW-II is in full swing by then.

this is my turf...Long Island (lawnguylund if you will)

hundreds of people saw a rocket go up and the plane come down...none were taken seriously.

Pierre Salinger, JFKs press secretary and franophile got the information from the French spy agency that it was taken down by a missle..

Clinton, running for re-election had the story buried....

The MSM may know who they want, the dear Hillary brigades will be strong.

I'm not sure, but am wondering if they can pull her over the finish line the way they did with Bambi; she's NOT a good candidate, she looks bad, sounds bad, and has lots of baggage she won't be able to get rid of so easily, all this without the heralded story lines that Bambi had.

Last, the dems know these things too, it's why she didn't win the primary in 2008. I think they are grooming Elizabeth Warren as the first woman president, maybe not in 2016, anyone but Hillary for that title is what they are hoping.

What missile? Who fired it. Who gave the order? And you just don’t go to your local war surplus store and pick one up. For what reason if nobody claimed responsibility. Who was on-board that it needed to be taken down? And I’m thinking of those twenty or thirty kids on-board. If no responsibility and no claim the shooting down was a moot point.

When I read on the internet from some aviation trade websites, the accounts of the two helicopter pilots who witnessed everything from altitude; I always had doubts about the fuel tank story.

Come on, how could these guys be blown off? One was ex-Vietnam veteren who dodged missles as his duty. They said they saw a missle and in their experience; never saw anything that looked that much like a missle, that turned out not to be.

How come we never heard from these pilots on various talk shows since?

“60 Minutes”, where were you? This is your back yard.

there could have been some islamofascists on a small boat off shore(smuggled-in rocket?)....or there was talk of accidental taking down of the plane by our own military who was off of Jersey doing war games or some such.

Granted, this is hearsay. But a very liberal acquaintance of mine from the east coast says it was a missile accidently fired from an Army Reserve base in New Jersey. She said the source was common knowledge on the east coast and they also knew Clinton feared the truth would ruin his re-election chances.

I think the even bigger story is the failure of the Media to pursue this, or similar, stories. They will only pursue these kinds of stories against Conservatives. When it comes to Liberals, they will try to bury, minimize or excuse it. Only when their credibility is at stake will they pretend to report it. The MSM has become like Pravda—they just parrot whatever press release their given.

TWA 800 was downed in July, 1996 during Bill Clinton's first term. This was just a few months before the election of 1996 in which he was re-elected.

If this news had come out that it had been a terrorist attack during the time of his "peace dividend" when the military was being downsized, he probably would not have been re-elected.

Also this news would have killed the airline industry and maybe put the brakes on the booming economy at that time.

We more than suspected.

Fact is we've lived under a Third World dictatorship for quite some time now.

Only difference is, it's becoming undeniably obvious as they become more and more confident that the game is over and there is nothing we can do about it.

I think this story is what brought me to Free Republic where I foolishly lurked for a long time before actually signing up. As I recall it was the alt.current-events.clinton.whitewater Usenet group where I first heard Free Republic mentioned.

I suspect others traveled a similar path.

Benghazi puts this in a whole different light. And Hillary was there for both, in it up to her armpits.

If TWA 800 went down because of faulty wiring and a center wing fuel tank explosion why didn’t the Federal Government revoke the airworthiness certificates of the 747 fleet, either the entire fleet or just those of the same lot number?

Remember the recent issues with the Dream Liner? And what happened there? And there were ZERO deaths in the various battery incidents.

Why didn’t the same thing happen to the 747s back in 1984?

"Flight 800 was a Clinton cover-up...It's exposure would torpedo Hillary's 2016 dreams."

It will do no such thing. Entirely too many Americans are leading self-absorbed, egocentric lives. Unless they knew a passenger on the plane, they could care less. Even if it's proven definitively that Slick Willy used his crooked pointer finger to personally launch the SAM that brought the flight down, nobody will care and nothing will be done.

I followed the incident closely at the time....about day 3 into the crash recovery, Clinton ordered all the principal officers involved down to Washington, for “discussions”...the complexion of the reports changed upon their return to the crash site....

Iran never claimed credit for Pan Am 103.

Qaddaffi admitted Libyan reposnibility in 2003, probably to attempt to play nice after seeing what happened to Saddam.

I think most credible analysis puts Iran behind that attack. Obviously, a state actor taking credit for an act of terror like TWA 800 would be akin to declaring war.

Agree with your points. TWA 800 fell out of the sky on 7/17/1996. The Summer Olympic games in Atlanta started on 7/19/1996. I recall some thought this timing may have contributed to the coverup. And of course, TWA merged with American Airlines 5 years later.

I don t know what to believe about this but if 6 NTSB investigators on the case come forward to say it was a missile that is pretty convincing. But if it was a missile there should be radar tracks from JFK.

It’s kind of hard to believe that story along with the story about the navy holding firing exercises right under international flight paths - that was the second story. People are supposed to believe that the hundreds of sailors involved in a shoot not one came forward to some sleaze press for money to tell? And a missile “accidentally” fired from a base in NJ streaks across NYC to over LI and brings down a plane? Just too many “theories” out there. Which one do you pick? I go along with a cracked fuel tank that spewed a stream of jet fuel and was ignited by the engine heat burning from the end and running up to the tank exploding it. Same thing happened in the Philippines to a 737 just sitting on the ramp in Manila. Tank ruptured due to over pressure, squirted out some fuel and ignited.
