William Boardman: New Evidence Ponts to TWA-800 Coverup!
New Evidence Points to TWA 800 Coverup. New evidence contradicts the US government's official story and supports the conclusion that an American 747 jet passenger liner was brought down by an explosion outside the airplane. likely a missile, which caused fuel tanks to explode destroying the aircraft, according to a group that includes credible professionals in aviation, investigation, media, and physics. On June 19, this group formally petitioned the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) to reopen its long but inconclusive investigation of the strange mid air explosion that brought down TWAFlight 800 on July 17, 1996, killing everyone aboard, 230 people from 13 countries. NTSB chair Deborah Hersman declined to discuss the petition. Board spokesperson Kelly Nantel issued a statement indicating that the board would probably respond within about 60 days. The newest challenge to the long distrusted official story of TWA Flight 800 comes from a group led by six experienced crash investigators, all of whom worked on the original TWA Flight 800 investigation from 1996 to 2000. The nameless group also includes a physicist, a documentary film producer, and a CBS News producer, and a CBS News producer, whose coverage of the 1996 story was suppressed by the network at the time. Also supporting the petition to re open the investigation are a number of eyewitnesses to the explosions and several family members of the victims. Epix Film Charges Cover up, Evidence Suppression, Witness Intimidation. The petition to the NTSB is timed to help promote, and directly supported by, a new documentary, TWA Flight 800, that tells the story of how, 17 years later, inside investigators finally break their silence. The documentary premieres on July 17 on Epix, the premium cable channel started in 2009 by Viacom, Metro-Goldwin Mayer, and Lions Gate Entertainment. Documentary co-producer Tom Stalcup is a physicist and co founded the Flight 800 Independent Researchers Organization in 1999 to assure the integrity of the NSTB crash investigation, based on the belief that the FBI unlawfully denied the National Transportation Safety Board access to forensic results and eyewitness interview documents and continues to do so. Focusing on whether TWA Flight 800 was brought down by an internal, i.e. gas tank malfunction or bomb, or external i.e., missile explosion, physicist Stalcup told Democracy NOW!: The most significant piece of evidence that we analyzed, that the NTSB has not analyzed, is the initial detonation that caused the crash. This was recorded by multiple FAA radar sites. And it was consistent with and corroborates the eyewitness reports.
