Posted on 07/19/2013 7:42:27 PM PDT by LSUfan
When the final official explanation of the cause of TWA 800′s destruction came out, like most Americans, I accepted it and had no reason to be skeptical, largely because I wasnt paying particularly close attention.
The new documentary, simply titled TWA Flight 800, combined with another excellent documentary released in 2001 (see below), has made me think twice.
The reason this latest documentary is credible and so newsworthy is because members of the original investigation team have come forward to call for re-opening the investigation.
Recent FOIA requests have revealed a few confusing details that were previously unknown as well.
It is certainly not beyond the realm of possibility that our Jihadist enemies, who we know were armed with Stinger missiles at the time, attacked us in July 1996, 5 years before 9/11. Im not ready to declare that to be the case, but there are enough troublesome holes in the official explanation of the destruction of TWA 800 to warrant a more thorough, independent analysis.
Rather than use the FBI, CIA, NTSB and FAA to conduct the investigation, I believe that the investigation should be conducted under the auspices of NASA and the Department of Defense, with a blue ribbon panel of investigators from both the public and private sector. In other words, I believe TWA 800 warrants an independent commission similar to the 9/11 Commission in the wake of the September 11th terrorist attacks.
Here are a few questions and suspicious items that remain:

800 was taken down by a missile.
You know, one of the top theories is that a US navy ship off the coast was doing a missile test, and it went horribly wrong.
Another top theory is that NATO was working with the US off the coast, and their missile went horribly wrong.
Something bad happened. It wasn't the fuel tank. And the US government absolutely does NOT want you to know the details.
Most likely a US Navy test gone wrong.
So you’re telling us that all those people on a Navy ship kept quiet? Like there’s more than one ship involved in a missile shoot and also why would they conduct it where it in an area that involves civilian air traffic. You mean that nobody on those ships said anything? A $500 a month sailor wouldn’t have gone to a tabloid and spilled everything for a ton of money? This Flt. 800 “conspiracy” thing has been going on for years and been disproved. But every once in a while it pops up.
NASA could do it as part of their “Muzzie Outreach”.
Hey, how many folks at the IRS have stepped forward and explained how Obama used the government to steal an election?
How many folks have laid out Fast & Furious in all of its gory detail?
How many of the people who survived Benghazi have come forward and sat for interviews with Katie Couric?
And is bin Laden really dead? SEALs got him? You believe that?
The government lies. And they do it quite successfully. You could ask Michael Hastings or Andrew Breibart for the details ... but ...
Conspiracy theories are the only thing that keep some folks going.
They drag it out, because it’s true. And it goes away, because the government is good at convincing people that absolutely none of the conspiracies could possibly be true.
Well I guess everyone needs a hobby. Or a life. I suppose this is yours.
There is no question that TWA 800 was taken down by something OTHER than an internal explosion.
If TWA 800 had been taken down by an internal explosion as the Federal Government contends why wasn’t the entire 747 fleet grounded until what ever caused the internal explosion was identified and corrected?
In every other case of an aircraft, civilian or military, that has crashed because of an internal fault the entire fleet was grounding until an extensive physical inspection and/or repair effort had confirmed each individual aircraft is safe to fly again. Witness the Dreamliner’s problems with its batteries.
Does anyone remember any such grounding and inspection of the 747 fleet in the weeks/months/years following the destruction of TWA 800?
Just think of the lawyer’s holiday if TWA 800 was brought down by an internal explosion that went uncorrected and a second or third 747 crashed under similar circumstances!
“800 was taken down by a missile.”
Why would you say that? Just because 270 eyewitnesses see a missile doesn’t mean there was one.
While I am not sure the gobberment didn’t do this, I think it was more likely a terrorist attack.
Remember it was several months in front of the ‘Toon’s reelection bid, so the fact that Americans are not safe in American airspace could have been a deal killer for his second term.
The FAA does not believe detailed in-tank inspections of the FQIS components would be effective because the condition of in-tank component or wiring contamination and damage can be difficult to detect while the parts are installed. The agency believes the best approach at this time is to replace the current in-tank FQIS components with new parts, including replacement of silver-plated copper wires with nickel-plated wires.
The FAA is proposing that operators remove and replace FQIS components within 20 years from the date the airplane was manufactured, or within 24 months of publication of the final rule, whichever is later. Nickel-plated wire is much more resistant to corrosion in the presence of sulfur.
That's a mere rule change. It specifically says that an inspection would be impractical. They didn't look at the planes. They just changed the rules for maintenance.
The government had no serious worry that another 747 would explode due to a "spark in the fuel tank". The whole thing was a sham, because the government knows what happened.
Actually the harnesses inside the tanks were AD’ed and replaced with the “new improved” ones.
Not that it was the problem in the first place.
Could that "spark in the fuel tank" have been a "shoe bomber"....
Why would you say that? Just because 270 eyewitnesses see a missile doesnt mean there was one.
I'll bet it was George Bush. If it wasn't George Bush, it had to be George Zimmerman, unless it was really "anthropogenic global warming." Nah. On second thought, it was probably just racism.
Landing on a carrier involves high-impact, and the navy rightly wondered if their aircraft could experience similar fuel-tank explosions —they set out to find out if it was possible.
Under HUNDREDS of different temp/pressure variations they tried to replicate the explosion —NADA. They even dumped hibachis FULL of burning charcoal briquettes directly into fuel tanks with different fuel volumes —again, NADA.
They pulled out all the stops and finally got one VERY DINKY explosion —not even near enough to bisect an airliner fueselage.
The tests were a total bust.
In an NYC jail Ramsi Yousef (WTC bombing Episode 1) was housed next to a mafia informant, and Yousef MANY times wrote to him of the technical details of how airliner bombings could be carried out —the FBI was kept apprised at every step, as this moke won this AQ guy’s trust, more and more.
The FBI knew, and then all this knowledge became a nightmarish political liability after TWA800 went down.
JUST LIKE OKLAHOMA CITY.
Are there any conspiracy theories you don’t believe in?
