Image: Evidence confirms that TWA Flight 800 was shot down by the U.S. military, followed by a massive coordinated cover-up

 By:  / Natural News

The official story surrounding the tragic crash of Trans World Airlines (TWA) Flight 800 back on July 17, 1996, maintains that the airplane just “exploded” out of nowhere, and that there was no terroristic foul play. However, William Henry Teele III, a 10-year Navy veteran-turned-whistleblower, offers a different version of events that pegs the United States military as the culprit.

Though not intentional, according to Teele’s account, several U.S. Navy vessels were in the area at the time. And one of them launched a missile that struck TWA 800 and sent it plunging into the sea off the coast of Long Island, N.Y.

Jack Cashill from American Thinker wrote a book about all this back in 2016. He published an article the other day stating that he believes Teele’s account to be legitimate, based on who he is and his presence on one of the ships in the fleet that witnessed the TWA 800 incident first-hand. (Related: We, too, published a report back in 2013 about other whistleblowers who exposed what they described as a coverup concerning the crash of TWA 800.)

“Teele did not claim to be on the ship that fired the missile,” Cashill writes – you can read a more detailed account of Teele’s background in Cashill’s article about the subject.

“He was on the USS Carr, a guided missile frigate that was one of the ‘combatants’ in the battle group that destroyed the unfortunate 747 and killed the 230 souls on board. Everything that I could verify about Teele’s account back then checked out.”


Why was the Navy holding a missile drill right next to New York City?

On the evening of July 17, 1996, according to Teele, the Carr was testing out two new radar systems: AN/SPY-1 Alpha and AN/SPS 49. This involved a simulated air attack that was supposed to target a drone pulled by a military aircraft using a thousand-foot chain.

Teele’s job during the simulation was to monitor it from within the ship’s combat information center (CIC). Other ships were supposedly in the area as well, including the USS Normandy, the USS Trepang, and the USS Albuquerque.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) later confirmed that an Aegis cruiser and a U.S. Navy P-3 Orion were also present, the latter of which just so happened to be flying about 7,000 feet above TWA 800 when the plane was blasted out of the sky.

Teele has also stated publicly that he believes the USS Leyte Gulf was also involved, making this a very complex operation. There were lots of moving parts, and with TWA 800 right in the middle of the operation it makes sense that a major accident like this was possible.

Why the Navy chose to hold this exercise so close to New York City and right in a flight path remains unknown. One would think that the drill would have been better held somewhere more remote, far away from major airports?

Another factor in the accident was TSA 800’s low-flying altitude at the time. Air traffic control reportedly held the plane at 13,700 feet to allow U.S. Air 217 to pass safely overhead.

There were multiple commercial aircraft right in the middle of this Navy operation, in other words. And according to Teele, he and his fellow men “jumped the gun” in shooting down TWA 800, believing it to be the “assumed enemy” in the drill.

“We had a track on a contact that came out that fit the profile that we were given,” he maintains. “It matched the drill.”

All of the evidence surrounding what happened was taken to the “shred room,” Cashill explains, citing Teele who said that they all “ran to Bermuda” and disposed of the truth.

      While USA won’t admit it years later, Iran when it accidently shot down one of it’s passenger jets within three days admitted the error. USA is just like China in it’s inability to admit error. They both pretend their countries cannot do anything wrong, like little children. Something is very wrong when you cannot admit the truth.

      USA the newest banana republic, raiding former presidents for political smear purposes and hiring 87,000 thugs to kill and bully USA citizens.

        Pierre Salinger proved this info within months after it happened in 1996.
        WHY ARE YOU RUNNING THIS OLD stuff? Do you really not have anything else to cover, in this emergency time of so many oncoming crises??

      A similar tragedy occur, due to the accidental launching of an Exocet missile by the French Navy shooting down an Airliner very likely from L’Ile du Levant army/navy base about 80km away (I hear on the local radio minutes after the tragedy. It would be a shock for several of my class-mates who lost friends. The ‘unexplained crash, occur while the plane was on routine long finale’
      here is the scoop: “Crash of the Ajaccio-Nice caravel in 1968: the Élysée asks for the lifting of defense secrecy”

      …after the crash of the Air flight France Ajaccio-Nice off Antibes on September 11, 1968, Emmanuel Macron asked his Minister of Defense, Florence Parly, to refer the matter to the National Defense Commission to pave the way for the declassification of a number of documents classified as “defense secret”, in connection with the tragedy, learns this Tuesday, September 10 France Bleu Azur, confirming information from “Nice Matin”.

      The Head of State sent a letter to this effect to Mathieu and Louis Paoli, founders of the association of victims of the caravel crash, which had killed 95 people, including 13 children and 6 crew members.

      THE THESIS OF A MISSILE LAUNCH FAVORED BY THE FAMILIES. The suspected EXOCET missile was made famous during the Falkland war, and it was been developped around 1968.

      The lifting of defense secrecy should make it possible to answer this question: did a missile launch shoot down the plane? The families of the victims never believed…

        The families of the victims never believed the thesis of the accident. However, after the disaster, the investigation had led to a dismissal, concluding that there was a fire on board related to the toilet water heater.

        The facts had been declared time-barred, before the case was reopened for “embezzlement and concealment of evidence” in 2011, at the insistence of the families. A lifting of defense secrecy was officially requested at the end of March 2018.

        The caravel of Air France “was damaged at sea following the accidental launch of an unarmed missile that would have hit the left reactor,” said in September last year, during a speech at the marine cemetery of Ajaccio, Mathieu Paoli, the president of the association of families of the victims, who denounces a “state secret”. It is the association, which suspects the army of having carried out maneuvers in the Mediterranean on the day of the accident, had reopened the file by filing a complaint.

      Had I not confessed to my mother, about leaving the toilet seat up, she would have spanked me abusively? Now we have government always lying about it all the time.

      ABOVE THE LAW while we get chastised for conspiracy theories.
