Oh puréé, flashback !!! La liste de discussion Flight800 est quasiment l’ancètre de Reopen911 et nous y avons usé nos fonds de culotte… c’est fascinant de voir ressurgir cette affaire, 20 ans plus tard. Et il semblerait que la thèse de l’époque, une méga bavure de la marine US qui testait des missiles sol-air dans la zone, se confirme.
Voila qui rappelle des affaires similaires en France, bien planquées également par l’Etat, comme par exemple le vol Itavia 870 abattu en Juin 1980 par erreur par la chasse française qui pensait que c’était l’avion de Kadhafi. La France n’a jamais reconnu cet assassinat de 64 adultes et 12 enfants âgés de 0 à 11 ans.
Did U.S. Gov’t Lie about TWA Flight 800 Crash? Ex-Investigators Seek Probe as New Evidence Emerges
Seventeen years ago, TWA Flight 800 crashed off Long Island, killing all 230 people aboard. The official government investigation blamed mechanical failure, but now a group of former investigators are petitioning the National Transportation Safety Board to reopen the probe, saying the original report was falsified. Was the plane accidentally shot down by the U.S. Navy conducting a nearby exercise, or was it a terrorist attack? We speak to the filmmakers behind a new documentary on the crash, « TWA Flight 800, » former CBS News producer Kristina Borjesson and Tom Stalcup, a physicist and co-founder of Flight 800 Independent Researchers Organization.
JUAN GONZÁLEZ: We begin with a look at shocking new claims about an airplane crash that happened 17 years ago. More than 200 people were killed when TWAFlight 800 burst into flames just minutes after taking off from New York on July 17th, 1996. The cause of that explosion has been in dispute ever since. Government investigators say it was most likely triggered by a failure in the plane’s electrical system. But many witnesses say they saw a streak a light move toward the plane before the explosion.
Now, six investigators who participated in the original probe of the crash have come forward to request that the case be reopened. They have petitioned the National Transportation Safety Board to reactivate its investigation. Their stories are featured in a new film directed by Kristina Borjesson, a former CBS News producer.
