First reports stated that the closest Navy ships were 130 miles away. This was used to discredit the idea that one of them could have fired a missile. Contrast that with what we have just been told. The first statement was a flagrant bald faced lie! There was clearly a significant operation going on that evening, directly under the flight path of TWA-800. We know there was a P3 Orion flying over. It was reportedly discharging flares. Now we know there were three submarines in the area as well.
We haven't heard the last of this. What will become accepted over time, is that our government lied. People will assume that it had a good reason to lie. And over time it will just become accepted that TWA-800 was downed by a missile, perps unknown. Perhaps at some point we'll know that it was our missile, perhaps not.
The facts are that our Commander in Chief, the FBI, the NTSB, the CIA, the Navy and other concerns knew what happened all along. The aircraft was hit by at least one and possibly two missiles. The shooter could very well have been one of ours. I do not believe that a massive coverup would have been launched to avoid us knowing of an act of terrorism.
Due to this incident and several others, our government has severely damaged it's ability to be trusted. Couple the security type problems we are facing with the legislative problems we are facing. Our leaders are passing some incredibly devistating legislation, the full aspects of which will not be realized until years have passed. There isn't any level of government that can be fully trusted. From our farms, to our airports, to our skys, to our borders and to the halls of our givernment buildings, there's a growing odor of doom wafting through our national concience.
I don't like what I'm seeing one bit.
