Forgotten Conspiracy? TWA 800 Crash Gets a Revisit

A new documentary is set to shed new light on the terrible crash of flight TWA 800 that killed all 230 people on board back in 1997.  This was a hotbed of conspiracy banter at that time, but in the annals of history, events like 9/11 that would come later have somewhat overshadowed it.  This new information is threatening to bring it back to the forefront with former investigators saying a new inquiry should be opened and accusing it of being yet another massive government coverup.

The documentary will be released next month to coincide with the 17th anniversary of the plane’s explosion just after takeoff.  While government agencies concluded that faulty wiring caused the spontaneous explosion, there are tons of reports of seeing a beam of light (perhaps a missile) streaking at TWA 800 and purportedly causing it to explode.  While we wait anxiously to see what this new information will reveal, we felt like it was a good time to introduce some of our younger readers (or anyone that needs a refresher) to this long-standing conspiracy theory that long ago got swept under the rug.  The video below is a good starting point into seeing why so many people at the time doubted the government’s “official report” about TWA 800 and why it is still important to us today.  As always, we invite our loyal readers to chime in.  What do you think?  Is the TWA 800 only going to pile on all of the terrible revelations the government has had to endure these past few weeks?
