736 Eyewitnesses of TWA 800 say FBI altered their testimony!

TWA 800 Special Misses the Mark

By Roger Aronoff | November 14, 2005

While the program gave the appearance of being objective, in the sense that it did at least discuss several alternative theories, it ultimately avoided answering the tough questions.

The National Geographic Channel premiered a new documentary on the crash of TWA 800, claiming to have finally reconstructed through computer simulation what happened that night back on July 17, 1996. TWA 800 was the plane that took off from Kennedy Airport in New York headed for Paris. About 12 minutes into the flight, at an altitude of about 13,000 feet, the plane exploded and crashed into the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Long Island, killing all 230 people aboard.

According to the National Geographic show, which was part of a series called Seconds to Disaster, the official findings by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) of what happened that night are correct. Namely, that the plane exploded because of a short in the wiring in the center-wing fuel tank, which created a spark, and the spark caused the fumes from the approximately 50 gallons in the tank to explode. Then the plane tore open at the nose, which fell off, the fuselage climbed at least a couple thousand feet, and the burning fuel coming down created the false impression to eyewitnesses that a missile or plane had struck the plane in midair.

While the program gave the appearance of being objective, in the sense that it did at least discuss several alternative theories, it ultimately avoided answering the tough questions. What’s worse, it reported half-truths and left out key information.

For example, it said that 260 people witnessed something streaking toward and hitting the plane just before the explosion. But it failed to point out that 92 of those 260 had actually seen the object rise up from the surface before colliding with the ill-fated TWA jet. So the idea that the burning fuel and debris were confused with an object flying toward the plane by all these unrelated eyewitnesses is absurd. These people all provided official eyewitness reports, known as FBI 302′s.

There was nothing in the show about Hank Hughes, a senior NTSB investigator who testified at a Senate hearing about the strange activities of an FBI agent in the hangar where the pieces of the exploded plane were being put back together like some giant jigsaw puzzle. Addressing the Senate committee, Hughes said that “I saw him in the middle of the hangar with a hammer in the process of trying to flatten a piece of wreckage. In investigative work you do not alter evidence.â€￾ Hughes also charged that evidence was being removed from the hangar. He said that following a complete inventory, “Not to our surprise, we found that seats were missing and other evidence had been disturbed.â€￾

Kristina Borjesson, an award winning producer for CBS News, lost her job when she challenged the official version of what happened. Evidence uncovered in her initial investigation led her to believe there was a missile involved, and she wanted CBS to report what she had found. When they refused, she kept pressing, until it cost her her job. She wrote about it in a book she edited called “Into the Buzzsaw.â€￾

Maj. Fred Meyer is shown in the National Geographic show as one of the eyewitnesses. But they left out the fact that Meyer, a lawyer and Vietnam veteran Naval aviator, said that “Based on two combat tours, it is my firm belief to this day that it was military ordnanceâ€￾ that brought down TWA 800. He also said that the FBI never asked to speak to him, so he went to them. After sending over a low ranking agent to hear what Meyer had to say, the agent asked him no questions, and they never called him again.

And much more. Former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Thomas Moorer, was convinced the plane was shot down, and said so publicly. And Captain Ray Lahr, a former United Airlines pilot, has an ongoing case. He has a lawsuit against the NTSB and the CIA based on what he calls the “impossible zoom-climb.â€￾ He wants to know how they came up with the theory that after the nose broke off of the 747, the fuselage climbed in altitude by some 3,000 feet. Lahr and other aerodynamic experts do not believe that is possible.

Several people have done excellent work and investigation on this important story. They include the late Commander Bill Donaldson; Jim Sanders and Jack Cashill, and the books and videos they have done; investigators Graeme Sephton and Tom Stalcup; and of course, Reed Irvine, founder of Accuracy in Media, who passed away last year. There is a lot of evidence on the record that TWA 800 was brought down by something crashing into it and exploding. And that there was a cover-up to conceal what really happened.

The hows and whys are the subjects of theories. But the hard evidence, both eyewitness, physical, proof of cover-up, and circumstantial, plus the lack of evidence for the spark in the tank, point to a story that needs to be re-opened.

Instead, however, the National Geographic Channel, re-told the official version of a story-a version that just doesn’t stand up under the weight of the evidence.

Video Description:

"TWA 800 - The Search For The Truth" examines what happened that July night back in 1996, when TWA Flight 800 took off from Kennedy Airport in New York en route to Paris. Minutes later a series of explosions sent the 747 plunging into the Atlantic Ocean, killing all 230 people aboard. Correspondent Reid Collins, a 30 year veteran of CBS News & CNN, narrates this documentary & interviews eyewitnesses, family members of victims & air crash investigators who have looked into what happened that night. Was the government correct in its conclusion that a spark in the center wing fuel tank caused the explosion ? Or have government officials covered up important facts about the fate of TWA Flight 800 ? Could the tragedy have been caused by an Islamic terrorist network ? Or did a Naval exercise off the coast of Long Island go terribly wrong ? A former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff says he believes the plane was shot down & numerous military & civilian experts offer their opinions on what may or may not have happened. Watch this compelling & provocative program and decide for yourself. Has the full story been told ? Not until now....

Full length film:

Film: Silenced - TWA 800 and the Subversion of Justice

Postby Winston » Sun Mar 13, 2011 7:48 pm

Check this one out guys. This documentary about TWA 800 will make your jaw drop. It shows irrefutable testimonials from many eyewitnesses and aviation experts that PROVE BEYOND DOUBT that the FBI and CIA LIED about what the witnesses said and also FAKED testimonials to support its predetermined conclusion. It is IRREFUTABLE! Those of you who deny conspiracies (such as Globetrotter) will have no excuse to deny conspiracies and cover ups now. This video proves with certainty that COVER UPS and LIES by the government DO happen. Even you hard nosed deniers would have to concede after seeing this documentary. Watch it! Everything is clearly explained and your jaw will drop at the mass level of deception. Warning: You will never trust your government again after seeing this film!

Description by video uploader:

"This documentary proves that the U.S. government-including the FBI and DOJ-are totally corrupt and involved in serious felony crime and the outrageous cover-up of truth concerning the mysterious crash of TWA Flight 800 on July 17, 1996.

As you will see, Flight 800 was actually destroyed by a surface-to-air missile. Every allegation made in this film is backed up with facts-none more dramatic than those that come from the Federal government itself.

You'll learn what the 736 official eyewitnesses actually saw; why aviators reject the CIA "cartoon" explanation; how the Feds criminally suppressed reporting; the critical witness drawings; the rigged NTSB hearings; the damning radar data and documentation; the altered physical evidence; undeniable proof of explosive residue proving a missile strike; the stinging report from the machinist union; and much more!"

It turns out there's another explanation about what happened to TWA 800. This one says that the US allowed an Iranian submarine to blow it out of the sky in retaliation for a US Navy ship accidentally shooting down an Iranian airline. Iran demanded retribution or it would not compromise on anything. So the US allowed it to improve relations. This explains why an Iranian submarine was in the area at the time, and why immediately after TWA 800 went down, relations between the US and Iran immediately improved.
