Now It Can Be Told (Part 1)

By Mark Adams

On July 17, 1996 – twelve minutes after take off from New York’s Kennedy International Airport – a Boeing 747 headed for Paris exploded in midair over the Atlantic Ocean instantly killing all 230 people aboard. The resulting four-year investigation into what caused the fatal crash of Trans World Airlines Flight 800 was the longest, and at $40 million, the most expensive in the history of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).

The reconstructed wreckage of TWA 800, while stored at Calverton Executive Airpark.

Among the dead were 18 crew members and 212 passengers, including 16 students and five chaperons from Pennsylvania’s Montoursville Area High School French Club.

Witnesses of the crash reported seeing a fiery explosion in the night sky, followed by a shower of flaming debris. Almost immediately there was speculation that the plane had been the target of a terrorist attack, with many claiming they’d spotted what appeared to be a missile heading toward the plane just before it exploded. 

Although the source that led to the explosion was never discovered, the NTSB investigation concluded the crash’s cause was not a terrorist attack, but rather an electrical failure that ignited a nearly empty center wing fuel tank in the 25-year-old Boeing aircraft.

John Purvis, head of the accident investigation unit for the Boeing Company at the time of the event publicly declared:

 “The explosion that occurred on TWA 800 was in the center wing fuel tank and was not from anything external … The NTSB was never able to pin-point the precise cause, but it was clear that it was from within the tank.”

Purvis further elaborated:

“I made two visits to the mockup the NTSB assembled from the wreckage in a hangar on Long Island at the time, … I spent a fair amount of time examining the wreckage, looking for signs of missile/projectile entry. I saw none, and the real experts, who were much better at it than I, saw nothing either. However, I think the most compelling reason to say it was not shot down is that no one has ever claimed responsibility for any act against the plane. To me, it is impossible for secrets like this to be kept secret very long.”

In a February 2, 2021 press release the NTSB openly declared: 

“‘The investigation of the crash of TWA Flight 800 is a seminal moment in aviation safety history,’” said NTSB Managing Director Sharon Bryson. ‘From that investigation we issued safety recommendations that fundamentally changed the way aircraft are designed.’”

“ … we issued safety recommendations that fundamentally changed the way aircraft are designed.”

Good flatulent stuff.

The 1996 crash of Trans World Airlines Flight 800 was one of the deadliest aviation incidents in mankind’s history. For over a quarter of a century the true cause of the fatal crash that killed 230 people has been concealed from the public by the FBI. Since day one there was speculation that a terrorist attack was the culprit necessitating FBI involvement.


Families file suit against government claiming TWA Flight 800 was destroyed ‘by an errant United States missile’

This was the screaming headline of the July 18, 2022 edition of the Williamsport Sun-Gazette. The incendiary article states in part: 

“The suit, filed in U.S. District Court in Massachusetts, charges that the federal government released a false report contending that the explosion in the plane was the result of an electrical fire in its center fuel tank.”

 “ … the federal government released a false report contending that the explosion in the plane was the result of an electrical fire in its center fuel tank.”

 Compare and contrast that quote with the NTSB 2021 February press release:

“ … we issued safety recommendations that fundamentally changed the way aircraft are designed.”

How was the critical evidence obtained that a missile destroyed the Boeing aircraft? The article explains:

“Only recently, thanks to the work of physicist, Dr. Thomas Stalcup, through his Freedom of Information Act litigation in Massachusetts federal court, has evidence emerged proving that the TWA 800 explosion was not caused by any defect in the airplane, but instead by an errant United States missile fired at aerial target drones flying nearby.” (Emphasis added.)

Here is another provocative headline:

CITING NEW EVIDENCE SURVIVING FAMILY MEMBERS SUE FEDS, RAYTHEON AND LOCKHEED MARTIN OVER 1996 TWA CRASH – This was the September 21, 2022 screaming headline for the publication Law Street Media. 

“An amended complaint filed in Massachusetts federal court on Monday has accused the United States Department of Defense, the United States Navy, and contractors Raytheon Technologies Corporation and Lockheed Martin Corporation of a cover-up of the 1996 aviation incident resulting in the death of all 230 passengers and crew members aboard Trans World Airlines Flight 800.”

Oh how they lie!

During a June 2013 interview that featured physicist Dr. Tom Stalcup together with Megyn Kelly and James Kallstrom, the FBI agent who ran the TWA crash investigation, Kallstrom arrogantly lashed out: NOT A MISSILE. NEVER WAS, NEVER WILL BE.

[6:31- 6:35 Minutes]

For 25 years Stalcup fought with hell-fire valor to obtain crucial radar images that the FBI confiscated from East Coast naval installations within hours of the incident. The coveted tapes conclusively reveal that an errant U.S. Navy missile caused the deadly crash. After an epic struggle that spanned a quarter of a century, Stalcup obtained prima facie evidence that the FBI lied about the true cause of the fiery crash.

The Connection Between the 1996 TWA 800 Crash and the1995 Oklahoma City Bombing

In 1996 Defense Secretary Bill Perry requested that Congress approve funds to upgrade U.S. missile defense capability describing the missile threat from rogue nations as “here and now.”–22-cv-11032/%20Krick_et_al_v._Raytheon_Company_et_al/6/ Pages 12-13

Did Perry have reason to be concerned that a missile attack from a rogue nation was imminent? Or was he spewing bureaucratic meshuga? After all its been over a quarter of a century and so far no rogue nation has dared to launch a missile attack against the United States. What events transpired during that time frame that rattled then Defense Secretary Bill Perry?

Pulling back the curtain.

In February 1993 the first bombing of the World Trade Center occurred and on April 19, 1995, the Oklahoma City Bombing shocked the country. Although neither attack involved a missile per se they certainly jolted the nations’ psyche and must have heavily influenced Defense Secretary Perry as well as members of Congress which in turn catalyzed the rapid and reckless – indeed deadly – deployment of the Aegis Weapons system along East Coast sectors operating perilously close to commercial airline traffic corridors.

Fact: Since 1996 the FBI has been in cover-up mode concealing the ugly fact that a U.S. navy missile caused the fiery crash of TWA 800.

Fact: The 1995 bombing of the Murrah Building was a much more sophisticated – and deadly – terrorist event than the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center that went far beyond just two guys (Tim McVeigh and Larry Nichols), a truck and a fertilizer bomb. Here again the FBI has been in cover-up mode for almost thirty years.

Fact: In August 1995 federal prisoner Kenneth Trentadue was viciously beaten to death while in federal custody at the Federal Transfer Center in Oklahoma City. Trentadue’s tragic death was covered-up by the federal government as a bizarre hanging suicide.

Trentadue’s violent murder had to be covered-up because a proper investigation of his death would eviscerate the carefully constructed web of lies that engulf the government’s explanation of the Oklahoma City bombing.

Fact: The cover-up of Trentadue’s 1995 prison homicide was used to facilitate the cover-up of Jeffrey Epstein’s 2019 prison homicide. (Trentadue’s and Epstein’s violent deaths are the subject of the next installment.)

Back to TWA 800

“It also noted that evidence founded by Stalcup establishes that the U.S. Missile Defense Agency, Department of Defense and the U.S. Navy acting in concert with Raytheon Company and Lockheed Martin Corp., were testing the Aegis Weapons System and firing SM-2 missiles with live warheads from warship(s) at aerial missile targets off the coast of New York in proximity to commercial airline paths.

Did you catch that?

The U.S. Missile Defense Agency;

the Department of Defense;

the U.S. Navy;

Raytheon Company;

and Lockheed Martin Corp

every single one of these behemoths were involved in a massive cover-up.

“It is further contended by plaintiffs that the defendants ‘engaged in a top-down cover-up to prevent the public from learning the truth about TWA 800.’” 

Dr. James Stalcup should be revered as a hero. I spoke with Dr. Stalcup and can personally attest that he does not feel like a hero, instead he feels like a national pariah.

When taught correctly there is a timeless lesson we can learn from history: A nation of sheep will be ruled by wolves.
