  • Officials Feared Terrorism After TWA Crash

    07/14/2006 4:16:56 PM PDT · by Hal1950 · 40 replies · 1,209+ views
    President Bill Clinton's national security adviser says the administration prepared to strike in the Middle East after the 1996 crash of TWA Flight 800. Anthony Lake told CNN officials thought terrorists might have brought the plane down a few minutes after it took off from Kennedy International Airport. The National Transportation Safety Board concluded that vapors in the fuel tank exploded, and found the crash accidental. "We especially wanted to look for an Iranian connection," Lake told "CNN Presents." Bombs placed by terrorists were blamed for two earlier crashes of Boeing 747s on trans-Atlantic routes. They were the 1985 crash...

    (CNN) -- Ten years after the explosion of TWA Flight 800, the very problem that led to the disaster still has not been fully fixed -- despite a warning from the Federal Aviation Administration that it is "virtually certain to occur" again without additional safeguards. In fact, the FAA predicts that without its recommended safety changes four more TWA-type disasters are likely to happen over the next 50 years. While the FAA has not yet made a final decision, Boeing, which has built nearly three-fourths of the jetliners in use around the world, told CNN it will install a nitrogen...

    CCC ^ | 13 July 2006 | Jeffery Reid
    ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- Bolstered by eyewitness accounts and the Internet, the explosion of TWA Flight 800 off the coast of New York 10 years ago spawned a slew of sinister conspiracy theories, most notably the belief that a missile from a U.S. Navy ship was responsible. So prevalent were these theories that the term "Pierre Salinger Syndrome" - the belief that everything on the Internet is true - entered the lexicon. For investigators, the conspiracy theories wasted time and diverted valuable resources. Investigators ultimately determined that Flight 800 was the victim of a center fuel tank explosion, most likely...

    Ten years ago this month, a Boeing 747 was climbing away from New York, headed for Paris, when an explosion ripped off the front section and sent fiery debris and bodies plunging into the Atlantic Ocean, just off Long Island. Few crashes before or since Trans World Airlines Flight 800 have produced as many conspiracy theories, which included terrorists, stray missiles and meteorites. Hundreds of U.S. agents spent four years chasing down thousands of leads. In the end, they agreed with accident investigators that an exploding fuel tank had caused the disaster, killing 230 people. But a decade later, steps...

    Doomed TWA Flight 800 took his daughter, 2 granddaughters Ten years after the rain came, Wayne Rogers is still waiting for answers. He does not question why 17 inches of water fell from the sky, flooding his home in Lakeside of Sans Souci and destroying most of his possessions. Act of God. Mother Nature. Inadequate drainage. End of discussion. But that Flood of 10,000 Years — the anniversary of which is coming up next week — is nothing more than a footnote to the tragedy that forever changed Rogers' life on that awful date.

    From August 1996 until October 1997, the FBI prefaced nearly every Flight 800 news update with the assertion that its agents were intensively scrutinizing the evidence to determine whether the initial explosion was a bomb, a missile or the result of a mechanical failure, specifically in the fuel tank. Six years of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the FBI has now established that the most precise characterization of the explosion was provided by the victims themselves. Because the reports of many witnesses described a missile-like object rising from the surface, the FBI swarmed to Long Island and took...

    WASHINGTON – Are secret meetings being held between the corporate and political elites of the U.S., Mexico and Canada to push North America into a European Union-style merger? Is President Bush's reluctance to control the border and enforce laws requiring deportation of foreigners who enter the country illegally part of a master plan to all but eliminate borders between the U.S., Canada and Mexico? Does the agenda of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America include a common currency that would scrap the dollar in favor of what some are calling the "amero"?

    In the decade since TWA Flight 800 exploded off Long Island's South Shore, flying on commercial airlines has grown so much safer that the risk of dying in a plane crash has plunged to its lowest level in history. Improvements in technology and training -- and an added focus on safety spawned by Flight 800 in July 1996 and the ValuJet crash in Florida two months earlier -- have helped usher in an unprecedented period of air safety, experts say. In the past five years, the accident rate "has been brought to the brink of extinction," said Arnold Barnett, a...

    SHIRLEY, N.Y. — A little past 8:30 p.m., as the blistering July sun melted in the west, a jumbo jet carrying students, honeymooners, businessmen and others to Paris exploded in a fireball, raining carnage into the Atlantic Ocean off Long Island. It had been only a dozen minutes since TWA Flight 800 took off from Kennedy Airport. Initially, investigators were not sure whether the calamity that killed all 230 people aboard the flight on July 17, 1996, was caused by a bomb, a missile or mechanical failure. Just two days before the start of the Summer Olympics in Atlanta, it...

    July 17 marks the 10th anniversary of the destruction of TWA Flight 800, the investigation of which represented the most conspicuous and consequential misdirection of justice in American history. This column is part of an in-depth look at the incident, presenting several compelling reasons why the investigation must be re-opened. "I always start with the premise that the question is, why should we not publish?" said New York Times beleaguered editor Bill Keller. "Publishing information is our job. What you really need is a reason to withhold information." Keller, of course, was defending his paper's decision to expose the government's...

    Flight 800 kin furious that '96 disaster didn't make FAA order fuel tank change Nearly a decade after TWA Flight 800 went down off Long Island, killing all 230 people on board, the chief of the National Transportation Safety Board yesterday said industrywide fuel tank problems that caused the crash are "largely unchanged." Acting NTSB Chairman Mark Rosenker slammed the Federal Aviation Administration for "moving much too slowly" to require explosion-prevention "inerting" devices that have been on the board's Most Wanted list since shortly after the July 17, 1996, tragedy.

    Editor's note: On the evening of July 17, 1996, at 8:19 p.m., TWA Flight 800, a Boeing 747, took off from Kennedy Airport, bound for Paris. At 8:31 p.m., over 730 people watched Flight 800 explode, killing all 230 of the people aboard. Not long afterwards, millions of Americans watched their televisions in fascinated horror as search and rescue crews looked for survivors among the flaming debris. Only dead bodies were recovered. Flight 800 is mostly an ugly memory for people these days. The U.S. government issued an explanation that a fuel tank had somehow exploded. Yet, they flatly denied...

    NEWS MEDIA UPDATE - FIRST CIRCUIT - Freedom of Information During nearly six years of litigation, investigators released nearly 600 pages of documents to the families of victims of the TWA flight that exploded shortly after takeoff from New York in 1996. Families of some of the 230 victims killed aboard 1996's deadly TWA Flight 800 will not receive additional documents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, a federal appeals court has decided. Ruling that the FBI's search satisfied its obligation to conduct a "reasonable" search for documents related to the families' request, the U.S. Court of Appeals in Boston...

    Researcher verifies testimony of key FBI witnes A researcher of the TWA Flight 800 downing says his use of the map program Google Earth to verify the claims of witnesses bolsters his belief that the 747 jetliner was shot down by a missile, contrary to the official explanation. Robert Donaldson, who has carried on the investigation of his brother, the late Cmdr. William Donaldson, re-interviewed a key witness, Mike Wire, whose testimony was used to create the government's explanation. Nearly 10 years ago, after an extensive investigation, the FBI and National Transportation Safety Board declared "mechanical failure" the cause of...

    Learning from a disaster Sunday, February 05, 2006 Thomas W. Gerdel Plain Dealer Reporter At about 18 minutes after 8 o'clock on the evening of July 17, 1996, TWA Flight 800 rumbled down a runway at John F. Kennedy International Airport. The Boeing 747, with 212 passengers and crew of 18 headed for Paris, climbed into a clear sky to about 15,000 feet off Long Island, N.,Y. "Look at that crazy fuel flow indicator there on No. 4, see that?" said the captain. The time was 29 minutes after 8 o'clock. A minute-and-a-half later, the cockpit recorder captured sounds of...

Today giant tears are shed at the New York Times because one of their own, Judith Miller, appears to be on the way to prison for up to 120-days because she nobly refused to give up a source.

In the last two weeks, MSNBC has been leading the charge to bring this case to closure. Its on-air personnel – Chris Matthews and Joe Scarborough in particular – have been asking hard questions about why no charges have been brought against CIA agents who may have lied about the nature of this crash.

    Even after the presidential election, America’s media solons and disgruntled former government officials—such as Richard Clarke—continue to get fawning coverage for every pronouncement on the basic harmlessness of Saddam’s Iraq. We’re supposed to accept the idea that Saddam was just a small-time monster, too weak and incompetent to harm a far-away America. But wouldn’t it be revealing if our intelligence community actually had to answer some hard questions about Ramzi Yousef and the annihilation of TWA Flight 800—the second-greatest mass-murder in American history. The public would then hear of how Yousef worked for Saddam Hussein, and how Iraq's dictator was...

    In the case of the Oklahoma City bombing, as we will see in the investigation of TWA Flight 800, the Clinton Justice department's most dazzling sleight of hand was to make the eyewitnesses disappear. The FBI refused to even look at the material Oklahoma City TV reporter Jayna Davis had gathered. Rather than put a single witness on the stand who could place McVeigh in or near Oklahoma City on April 19, the prosecution chose to build an entire case on circumstantial evidence. Much as with TWA 800, the FBI lost all interest in the eyewitnesses as soon as the...

    The 9/11 Commission rejected evidence that al-Qaida may have played a role in the 1996 downing of TWA Flight 800, investigative reporter Peter Lance claims. What's more, says Lance, the evidence of an al-Qaida link was first presented to 9/11 Commissioner Jamie Gorelick when she was deputy attorney general under President Clinton. On Thursday, Lance shared details of his new book, "Cover-up: What the Government Is Still Hiding About the War on Terror," with ABC Radio Network's John Batchelor.

    WELLSVILLE -- Despite having three places he was involved in searched by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Thursday, Dr. Kenneth M. Berry, 46, of Wellsville, was arrested, but on a domestic violence charge in New Jersey. Point Pleasant Beach (N.J.) Police charged Dr. Berry with four counts of assault and a temporary restraining order was issued by Judge James A. Ligouri. Agents from the FBI executed a search warrant at two homes in Wellsville Thursday as part of an investigation into "the origin of the anthrax-laced letters mailed in September and October of 2001 which resulted in the deaths...

    MITH POINT BEACH, N.Y., July 15 - It is an off year for mourning the dead, here where the sand meets the sea. There is no memorial to unveil. No visit from the governor on the agenda, and the haunting line of 230 candles - one for each person who died on Trans World Airlines Flight 800 - will not glow at the ocean's edge. Throngs may return for the 10-year anniversary of the crash, but now, eight years after the 747 bound for Paris from Kennedy Airport exploded and plunged into the Atlantic Ocean, killing everyone on board, the...

    Flight 800 Organization ^ | July 14, 2004 | Press Release
    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE July 14, 2004 TWA 800: Wreckage Missing, Cases Pending, Eight Years Later As the eight-year anniversary of the crash approaches, the first piece of wreckage that radar sites recorded separating from the plane is missing. Navy divers located and recovered this piece, but the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) apparently never got it. The piece was recorded by multiple FAA radar sites hurling off the right side of the plane just as it exploded. Its significance cannot be overstated. It was ejected at apparent supersonic speeds, traveled horizontally 1/2 a mile (perpendicular to TWA 800’s flight path),...

    <p>Last July 17, the major media made no comment that seven years prior, on July 17, 1996, TWA Flight 800 exploded off the coast of Long Island, killing all 230 people on board.</p> <p>If the media took note of the date "July 17" at all last year, it was only to observe that American soldiers had found it scrawled on walls throughout Iraq. July 17, after all, was Iraq's national liberation day, the day Saddam helped lead the Baath Party to power in 1968, the day he seized the presidency in 1979, and not impossibly, the day he took his revenge on the United States in 1996.</p>

    Imagine if you were Bill Clinton on July 17, 1996. It is 8:30 in the evening. You are resting in the family quarters of the White House, but not easily. Just three weeks earlier, terrorists bombed the Khobar Towers, an American barracks in Saudi Arabia, and killed 19 American servicemen. After that attack, you tell the chairman of the Coordinating Security Group on terrorism (CSG), Richard Clarke, that you want to see plans for "a massive attack" against Iran should the need arise to retaliate in the future. In his book "Against All Enemies," Clarke calls this plan, "the Eisenhower...

    <p>"This is the nicest thing my government has ever done for me."</p> <p>So I wrote to the U.S. Air Force in Ramstein, Germany, after its personnel volunteered to waive the four-figure fee for the printing and shipping of the 22-volume, 8,000-page report on the crash of Ron Brown's plane [USAF CT-43A, Boeing 737-200, Tail No. 31149]. Just a week later, a couple of hefty UPS guys came carrying the report up the steps to my office.</p>

    Almost eight years after TWA Flight 800 was blasted out of the sky, a federal judge permitted discovery to go forward in a civil case James and Elizabeth Sanders have brought against the federal government and eight named defendants. A retired cop turned journalist, Sanders alleged that the defendants – namely certain federal officials involved in the Flight 800 investigation – perverted the system, using ordinary criminal process for the improper purpose of quelling the free speech of him and his wife, Elizabeth, the plaintiffs in the case. "Not only is the chilling of free speech of citizens not what...

    Did anyone happen to catch Freeh say this today: "A war footing means we seal borders. A war footing means we detain people that we're suspicious of," Freeh said. "We were using grand jury subpoenas and arrest warrants to fight an enemy that was using missiles and suicide boats to attack our warships." Maybe my memory is fuzzy, but I don't remember any terror attacks pre-9/11 using missiles, except for perhaps TWA 800!

She alleges that Mr. Gore was in bed, not with a woman, but with the airline industry he was entrusted to investigate when TWA Flight 800 went down. In June last year she won a little-noted decision in the D.C. Court of Appeals that keeps her search for truth alive. The search continues, and Mr. Gore is about to learn that Mrs. Cummock is not a woman with whom to be trifled. What brings ...

    MONDAY SEPTEMBER 24 2001 How Gore aborted air safety -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- © 2001 WorldNetDaily.com The country is united politically right now, so I'm sure I'll be accused of divisiveness, partisan sniping, maybe even being unpatriotic by raising this issue. But, heck, I've been accused of worse. Last week the Wall Street Journal called me a "purveyor of obscenity." I'll let you be the judge of whether that description suits me. I never let those criticisms bother me – especially not from uptight, corporate media establishment mouthpieces and spoiled, little, ivory-tower reactionaries. So, today I'm going to tell you how Al Gore...
