    single eyewitness supported the CIA s interpretation of their reports and Boeing promptly denied any knowledge of the data used for the animation In fact the NTSB and CIA had never even interviewed these eyewitnesses and no eyewitnesses were subsequently allowed to testify at the public hearings Only the FBI had talked to most of the eyewitnesses and after the interviews the FBI hid their identity Normally the NTSB uses a party process and a group should have been formed to determine the trajectory of TWA800 after the explosion Not this time A single NTSB technician using his own personal computer program and secret input data produced three more video animations that were later presented at the NTSB public hearing Any kid who can write a computer game program could have done as much if he didn t have to show the data and the formulas used The sad part is that the zoom climb has never been verified by an independent party That is just not the way an accident investigation should be conducted Any conclusion reached without presenting the supporting evidence is worthless I am asking for the data and calculations used by the CIA and NTSB for their zoom climb so that I can find their error Actually there was no zoom climb In developing our case thus far the points briefly summarized above have required about 500 pages of documentation 25 affidavits from expert witnesses and several video clips of our own This evidence proves that the zoom climb never happened and furthermore this evidence has never been refuted by the NTSB We prepared a Power Point presentation of this evidence for our hearing but we were not given time to show it Judge Matz reasoned that he had already seen most of the evidence since

    including the FBI s own timeline supports this conclusion If Burnett didn t conduct the K 9 test on the fatal plane adds Lance critically then the FBI is left with no plausible explanation for the presence of high explosives two of which were associated directly with Ramzi Yousef For all his moxie in taking on the TWA Flight 800 case Lance shies away from the political implications as to why the FBI was told to shut it down Lance argues the FBI and the Justice Department did so to protect a whole series of mob related cases that had been corrupted by the sweetheart relationship between the FBI and the Scarpas particularly with Gregory Sr Although Lance implicates Gorelick best known now as a 9 11 commissioner he does not even infer White House involvement I know something about this In my own new video production Mega Fix I follow the same thread Lance does from the first World Trade Center bombing through TWA Flight 800 to 9 11 to the 9 11 commission but show how Clintonian politics inform the whole process The Scarpa problem may have induced the FBI to cooperate in the cover up but the FBI did not initiate it Not having had time to digest the full scope of evidence in the TWA Flight 800 case Lance argues for a bomb on board the plane largely because it seems to fit the plot outlines Yousef was feeding Scarpa In First Strike Sanders and I argue for a flying bomb with missile intervention which makes more sense out of all the details especially the eyewitness reports and the Federal Aviation Administration data but also Yousef s communications and the flying bomb line of inquiry at the 9 11 commission hearings What all independent investigators do agree on is that the center wing tank did not self destruct that some hostile event triggered its destruction It is on this issue that Lance compromises his own reporting He does so by giving a pass to former terrorism honcho Richard Clarke Citing Clarke s Against All Enemies as his source Lance writes Even President Clinton s terrorism czar Richard Clarke perhaps the most knowledgeable man in Washington when it came to the Bin Laden threat accepted the fuel tank ignition scenario Clarke however did more than accept the fuel tank scenario As Clarke himself admits in Against All Enemies he devised it This is more than a quibble but Lance deserves a pass He has done the nation a service by breaking the TWA Flight 800 story into the mainstream As he learned and documents one does not pry into TWA Flight 800 with impunity Kudos Peter Lance Just watch your back buddy Now WorldNetDaily readers can get their copy of Mega Fix from WND s online store And as a valuable added bonus purchasing Mega Fix also qualifies you to receive FREE three power packed issues of WND s acclaimed print magazine Whistleblower a 22 50 value
