Myself, I've always believed what Senator A; D'Amato said the night of the crash, and that was that it was brought down by a missile....Big Al never did know when to shut up. But who's missile?... well at first I agreed with those who suspected a navy misfire...but post 9-11, and considering the WH occupant at the time, I'm open to the terrorist got lucky position.
You are so correct. The Navy vessels were there because the gov. had a source that said there would be a missile shoot down of a plane in the area before the Olympics. Our anti-missile stuff tried to kill the first missile, but failed.
Anybody want to bet there won't be another plane shot down out of JFK in the next couple of weeks?
One item that has always stuck in my mind....
As an ex-Long Island surfer, I still make a habit of checking ocean wave hieght during surfing season. In the days leading up to TWA 800 (actually for about 12 days), the waves were unsually big (8-12 ft).
The day before the downing, the ocean began to calm, and the night of the downing, the ocean was about as calm as possible (wave ht. 1-2ft).
Also, my brother said Georgie Stephie let slip that there were only two occassions when the Bubba crew was in the situation room...wanna' take a guess? ;O)....wanna' wonder why?
