Flight 800, The Real Story
By CHERYL GATESWORTH
April 9, 2019 - San Francisco - CA - PipeLineNews.org – On July 17, 1996, a Transworld Airlines Boeing 747 transport with 230 souls aboard was destroyed by an explosion while in flight several miles off the eastern shore of Long Island, New York. To most Americans it is a distant memory of a devastating tragedy. To a relative few however, it is a deep unresolved hole in the truth, an affront to the dead, and a continuing battle on the part of the living to obtain the truth and achieve - albeit to a small degree - a sense of closure. These few are mostly relatives and friends of the victims, airline pilots, and airline personnel, and they have never ceased in their efforts to have the investigation re-opened. Their activities have waxed and waned, and now there seems to be light at the end of a very long tunnel.
The initial reaction of the public and of government officials was that the United States again was the victim of a terrorist attack. Soon the narrative of the government, specifically the FBI, began to change and proceeded in a manner that suggested a restructuring of the evidence to reach a pre-determined conclusion rather than an objective search for the truth.
The FBI concluded its investigation, and on November 18, 1997, declared the loss to be the result of an accidental internal explosion with no criminal component.
Many Americans, particularly aviation professionals, were left dissatisfied.
James Kallstrom, The Assistant FBI Director who was in charge of the investigation, had been called to a high-level White House meeting on August 23rd [ TWA 800, The Crash, the Coverup and the Conspiracy ,Jack Cashill, Regnery History, 2016, pps101-102]. Prior to that date what speculation there was seemed to point to a missile or bomb. After the meeting, the narrative abruptly changed now focusing exclusively on an accidental internal explosion.[Read More]

April 2, 2019 - San Francisco - CA - PipeLineNews.org – Way too many topics bouncing around to confine our commentary to a solitary issue so instead please consider the following to be a friendly shotgun blast in the general direction of the less than fastidious reader.
MUELLERGATE, just to properly manage expectations...
Do NOT be surprised if the Mueller report will contain large redacted sections, especially in a report that is rumored to be over 400 pages long. Actually you can count on it since these kinds of documents are always “cleansed” of references to "sources and methods" [spook-talk for concealing the perps] but unfortunately it is only that kind of information that can shed light about what really happened, and actually continues to unfold in the attempted coup against President Trump.
Most curiously we should note that ALL of the initial information that caused this draconian witch hunt to start in the first place originated, or was made to appear to be coming from intel sources external to the United States, specifically GCHQ [Brit version of CIA, formerly run by Robert Hannigan who has gone into hiding] and Australia's intel community, specifically the former "ambassador" Alexander Downer.
“GCHQ first became aware in late 2015 of suspicious “interactions” between figures connected to Trump and known or suspected Russian agents, a source close to UK intelligence said. This intelligence was passed to the US as part of a routine exchange of information, they added… According to one account, GCHQ’s then head, Robert Hannigan, passed material in summer 2016 to the CIA chief, John Brennan. [source, British Spies Were First Aware …, UK Guardian]
But this operation was far more sophisticated than that, as additionally there are characters such as the "Maltese scholar" Joseph Mifsud, most assuredly a spook [assuming he is still alive, he too along with Hannigan and Steele, seems to have vanished] - ditto Stefan Halper, an American “academic” who has been alleged in numerous press reports as also being a member of the Boris and Natasha set.[Read More]
