    extensive experience as a Naval crash investigator and he and others have concluded that the NTSB s explanation of the Center Wing Tank explosion is not credible  With the help of these other concerned aviation professionals Cmdr Donaldson has produced an extensive report on the cause of the crash The initial Interim Report was delivered to the House Aviation Subcommittee on July 16th 1998 Recently uncovered information now shows that TWA Flight 800 could have been shot down by one or more shoulder fired missiles The FBI was briefed by military missile experts in the Fall of 1996 that Flight 800 was well within the range of a shoulder fired missile The FBI conducted a covert dredging operation for stinger missile parts between November 1996 and April 1997 Cmdr Donaldson brought this new evidence to the House Aviation Subcommittee in testimony on May 6 1999  Unfortunately the major media and the Congress are content to swallow the official line without question Janet Russell host of Beyond the Unexplained co host to night Search and eyewitness to the tragedy of Flight 800 interviewed him in 1998 when it becane apparent that Cmdr William Donaldsonâ s evidence did not support

    Notra Trulock the patriotic whistleblower of the Energy Department who exposed the Los Alamos national security disaster Trulock has been forced to strike back by filing a lawsuit for civil rights violations The complaint filed in the U S District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia this morning names Louis Freeh and other FBI officials and agents as defendants Regrettably the suit proved necessary when Louis Freeh failed to respond to Judicial Watch s offer to settle the matter Judicial Watch is legal counsel to Mr Trulock Apparently the FBI and other agencies such as the CIA Energy Department and the Clinton Gore Administration as a whole wanted to silence Notra Trulock from telling the truth about their incompetence and coverup of the most egregious breach of national security in U S history at the Los Alamos nuclear lab Under the absolutely false pretext that Notra Trulock had released national security information FBI officials and agents violated his civil rights With the help of Judicial Watch he will now seek redress from the harm inflicted upon him In pursuing large damages and other relief Mr Trulock will be able to take discovery which will be most revealing Joining Mr

    involved in the TWA 800 investigation have stumbled over that very question disagreeing about whether the streaks of light reported by many witnesses happened before TWA 800 first exploded in which case they could be a clue to the cause of the crash or after TWA 800 exploded in which case they would not be relevant in the search for the cause Somewhat alarmingly it turns out that the CIA which analyzed 244 summaries of witness interviews or FD 302s for the FBI and produced a video entitled What Did the Eyewitnesses See has not offered an explanation for the accounts of flares rising from the horizon except to say that the eyewitnesses must have been mistaken An April 1999 meeting with two unnamed CIA analysts who analyzed the 244 interviews gave members of the NTSB s Witness Group an opportunity to examine the CIA s thoughts on the subject CIA analyst 1 insists that the vast majority of the eyewitnesses saw only the last ten to fifteen seconds of what took place A transcript of the meeting is included in the NTSB s TWA 800 docket It turns out that some of the most valuable reports for our analysis were from witnesses who didn t even think they had seen a flare or firework They saw the fireball falling to the surface of the ocean he says An examination of about two thirds of the 750 odd FBI FD 302s released as appendices to the NTSB s Witness Group Chairman s Factual Report reveals that while it is true that many witnesses saw only a fireball and the aftermath numerous accounts tell of a usually red or reddish orange flare flarelike object streak of light firework Roman candle what have you rising in the sky beforehand It is unclear what criteria were used to select the 244 FBI interviews analyzed by the CIA or which 302s they were But the CIA analyst argues that these eyewitnesses were tricked by phenomena of sound and light They may have thought they saw something before the plane exploded he explains but actually they were seeing things that happened after the explosion when what was left of the plane was trailing burning fuel and either briefly climbing or falling towards the ocean That s significantly different than what our review of the witness statements leads us to believe says Air Line Pilots Association representative James Walters Referring to witnesses who saw something they described that was firework like Witness Group chairman and NTSB staffer David Mayer says Generally they described it as rising Many of them saw it for a very brief period of time five to 10 seconds He asks Walters how many of these witnesses the group identified In my notes I have 260 says Walters Mayer says that going by the way these witnesses characterized their observations the streak of light happened at the beginning of the event i e before TWA 800 exploded not the end Ample evidence supports

    public interest initiatives Traficant was an aggressive and seemingly incorruptible critic of the Reagan Administration I greatly admired him He was a favorite son candidate for the 1988 Demo cratic presidential nomination and he was my first choice But even in the Traficant s good old days there were puzzling associations and legal entanglements He accepted large bribes from mob figures during his tenure as Mahoning Country Sheriff he was put on trial for bribery and was acquitted The Internal Revenue Service ruled that he owed 100000 in extra taxes due to his bribery income To this day Traficant refers to the IRS as the Internal Rectal Service his uncouthness is legendary Two of Traficant s closest aides have pled guilty to delivering bribes to Mahoning County public officials from organized crime chieftains Traficant is under investigation and will likely be indicted for racketeering Traficant seems shockingly close to organized crime Traficant remains a voluble economic nationalist he is defiantly opposed to the free trade inter national trading system that is dominated by multinational corporations But Traficant s voting record has grown increasingly puzzling over the last ten years His district is heavily Democratic and yet he votes like a conservative Republican on most issues Traficant even votes with the Republicans on numerous key procedural votes Traficant endorsed conservative Ohio Republican Steve Chabot for re election to his U S House seat in 1998 and enthusiastically praised U S Rep Phil English a conservative Republican from northwestern Pennsylvania But the most galling evidence of betrayal was Traficant s pledge to support the re election of Speaker Denny Hastert a low keyed but ultraconservative Republican in 2001 Except for free trade issues Traficant is a Democrat in name only Traficant attracted strong opposition in the 2000 Democratic Primary He received only 51 in a three candidate race His main opponent State Senator Robert Hagan was a personal friend of Rep Patrick Kennedy Patrick Kennedy is the Chair of the House Democratic Congres sional Campaign Committee Traficant claims that Kennedy encouraged Hagan to enter the race Traficant s environmental voting record is atrocious the League of Conservation Voters named him to its Dirty Dozen list Traficant believes that House Democratic leaders encouraged Hagan s campaign and he returned a campaign contribution from the House Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee My relationship with Traficant is akin to the saga of Black Sox outfielder Joe Jackson Shoeless Joe Jackson was one of the best hitters in baseball of Hall of Fame quality But he was woefully underpaid by White Sox owner Charles Comiskey and he and seven other members of the 1919 Chicago White Sox perhaps the greatest baseball team of all time threw the 1919 World Series to the Cincinnati Reds After the scandal was exposed a young boy confronted Jackson outside the courthouse and exclaimed Say it ain t so Joe and Jackson replied I m afraid it is Jackson went from hero worship to dishonest goat status and that is exactly Traficant

    the sky without violent help from outside the aircraft It is also my firmest belief that 40 million dollars has been spent from the Federal Government s deep pockets to try and find any scapegoat for the real truth behind what happened Please visit the FIRO Flight 800 Independent Researchers website See Radar reports that show vessels moving away from TWA 800 after it exploded and towards the active Warning Area W 105 See over 700 reports from eyewitnesses just finally released by the FBI after 4 years See for yourself if they don t scream that something was moving towards the 747 before it exploded some of these eyewitnesses are combat veterans and career pilots 260 of these witnesses statements report an object moving UPWARDS before the explosion The FBI has decided to discredit over 700 eyewitnesses yet they leaked a story that a bomb sniffing dog exercise was conducted on that aircraft by one and only ONE police officer with no witnesses a month before Learn why the swath of cloth with missile residue removed from the Calverton Hangar by a recovery worker worried he was witnessing a cover up was confiscated by the FBI and still not tested by an independent entity to this day Please make the effort to review this for yourself The site is http flight800 org After you see the hard work done by just over 50 volunteer professionals I would greatly appreciate if you would back your new insight with support to continue to bring out the truth This money goes towards litigation necessary to gather data through the Freedom of Information Act that the various government agencies are reluctant to reveal to the public The witness database was just revealed after 4 years In the last year I have donated over
