In your apparently irrational zeal to "get" someone here you display your ignorance of procedures. Even critics such as Ian Goddard admit that the NTSB has SUPREME jurisdiction over all air disasters, even over the FAA, and even over the Air Force if it so chooses to exercise such jurisdiction. In fact, you destroy your own case, because the fact that the Air Force gave UP this jurisdiction when (to the conspiratorial thinker) it could have superceded "official" channels, proves all the more this was handled in a normal manner.

Stick with the radar data. Oh, I forgot, you don't have any.

So ... is this going to be your spin ... that the NTSB asked the Air Force to skip its Safety Board in the Brown case ... for the FIRST TIME in Air Force history (except for that one friendly fire shoot down)? Perhaps you can quote from some source that proves the NTSB "exercised" its "jurisdiction" in the Air Force case? Or is this just another lame story concocted by someone trying to defend the indefensible?

In fact, you destroy your own case, because the fact that the Air Force gave UP this jurisdiction when (to the conspiratorial thinker) it could have superceded "official" channels, proves all the more this was handled in a normal manner.

If you want to maintain this was handled in a normal manner because the Air Force "gave up" jurisdiction, then you are going to have to first prove that happened. While the NTSB was involved in the Accident Investigation following the Brown crash, the Air Force was definitely still in charge. You've provided no basis for believing that the NTSB invited itself, told the Air Force to skip the Safety Board or was in any way or shape in control of the post crash investigation. In fact, you are making up another story because you can't explain the facts any other way.
