Letter to 9-11 Commission on TWA-800 ^ | July 17, 2003 | Michael Hull

National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States

301 7th Street, SW Room 5125

Washington, DC 20407

July 17, 2003

Dear Members of the 9-11 Commission:

Recently, I wrote to you about Terrorist Missile Activity in the NY – Washington metropolitan areas. A copy of this correspondence is attached at the end of this letter. In that earlier correspondence I suggested that you reexamine missile activity which was reported both prior to and following the TWA 800 crash.

On this anniversary of the TWA crash I would like to submit for your consideration a detailed summary of the eyewitnesses’ statements to the FBI, NTSB and other investigative agencies and media.

These statements refute the government’s conclusion that the initiating event for the TWA 800 crash was an explosion of the center wing fuel tank. For example, you will find in the reports below the testimony of several pilots who flew over the smoke cloud from the center wing fuel tank detonation. TWA 800 was flying at just over 13,000 feet when the initiating incident leading to its destruction occurred. The center wing tank subsequently exploded (and generated a smoke cloud) at several thousand feet below 13,000 feet while TWA 800 was already on its way down to the ocean.

In the discussion below I have interspersed items from newspaper articles, my own comments, and references to each of the eyewitness descriptions.

August 25, 1996 Times of London

U.S. officials are investigating reports that Islamic terrorists have smuggled Stinger ground-to-air missiles into the United States from Pakistan. Senior Iranian sources close to the fundamentalist regime in Tehran claimed this weekend that TWA flight 800 was shot down last month by one of three shoulder- fired Stingers of the type used by Islamic guerrillas during the Afghanistan war.

The sources said the missiles arrived in America seven months ago after being shipped from Karachi via Rotterdam and on to the Canadian port of Halifax. They claimed an Egyptian fundamentalist group backed by Iran was responsible for smuggling the weapons across the Canadian border into the United States.

The group, the Gama'a al-Islamiya, comprises followers of Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman, a blind Egyptian cleric jailed in the United States over the 1993 New York World Trade Center bombing.

December 17, 1996 The Washington Times

An official with the Defense Intelligence Agency, spy arm of the Pentagon, has informed congressional staff members that, in his opinion, a shoulder- fired missile brought down TWA Flight 800. The same DIA official, described as an expert in missile technology, told the staff members that he personally was called in by the FBI in the days following the explosion of the TWA jet to assist with witness interviews. "In his opinion, the plane was brought down by at least one shoulder- fired missile," said the congressional source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. "When he said that, we all took a deep breath," the source added.

The Village Voice Fe bruary 24 - March 2, 1999

Noting that the "severe shattering of the left wing upper skin" had puzzled investigators, military expert Richard Bott speculated in the report, obtained by the Voice, that a missile striking the inboard left wing fuel tank would create "a significant hydrodynamic ram event" that would account for the wing's peculiar fragmentation.

Some wing pieces were recovered near JFK, suggesting that they fell from the aircraft in the first moments after the plane exploded.

Jim Kallstrom commented in the same Village Voice article: "You know, there are some things you can't explain."... (Continued... a lot more)

Letter to 9-11 Commission

This is a long read but ultimately compelling. Hull quotes the eyewitnesses and shows how TWA800 was brought down and how Clinton's NTSB, CIA and FBI plants obfuscated and denied the evidence.

Thank you very much!
Thank you very much!
That's the nicest thing that anyone's ever done for me.
It isn't every day
good fortune comes me way!
I never thought the future would be fun for me!
And if I had a bugle
I would blow it to add a sort
o' how's your father's touch.
But since I left me bugle at home
I simply have to say
Thank you very, very, very much!
Thank you very, very, very much!

Thank you for your donation!
