Why Congress Must Reopen the TWA 800 Investigation
By Jack Cashill

There is much more, and I would invite those interested to read Hughes’s testimony in full. “During the course of my 42-year career as an investigator,” Hughes concludes, “the investigation of TWA Flight 800 was the only case in which I witnessed deception, lies and corruption on the parts of investigators and their management. The extraordinary measures to which the NTSB, FBI and CIA went to falsify and distort witness statements or accounts of what occurred, to alter and hide physical evidence and to mount a false public relations campaign to misinform the public, was unconscionable.”
Given its need to protect the “corporate memory,” no one really expected the NTSB to open this potentially criminal can of worms on its own. Now it is left to Congress, and if Congress does not act, no one will.

Either this was a terrorist attack OR a US Navy blunder. Nothing else makes sense.
Personally, I would accept either explanation if it was the truth.
Of course, a terrorist attack would not fit the political narrative that “the Homeland is secure”.
A naval blunder would be almost as embarrassing.
Unfortunately, once again, “We, The People” may never know the real truth.
