"TWA Flight 800 crashed into the Atlantic shortly after takeoff from JFK airport on July 17, 1996, killing all 230 passengers on board. Although initial reports suggested a terrorist attack, FBI and NTSB investigators blamed a fuel tank explosion. But skeptics have long questioned the official story, and new evidence has surfaced that suggests a widespread conspiracy ... In TWA 800, historian Jack Cashill introduces new documents and testimonies that reveal the shocking true chain of events: from the disastrous crash to the high-level decision to create a cover story and the attempts to silence anyone who dared speak the truth"-- Provided by publisher.

I believe the author is a rightwing guy, so I am unfamiliar with him, but he still did an adequate job on this subject - - although I was disappointed he didn't elaborate more on the witness, Major Fritz Meyer, a highly decorated Vietnam War combat rescue helicopter pilot, whose experience in recognizing surface-to-air missiles equals all the other witnesses together! That said, Cashill does an admirable investigation - - please pay especially close attention to the bottom paragraph on p. 87, leading to the next page of 88 - - also on p. 134, several paragraphs down, beginning with: Reporters . . .
The author reports what Kristina Borjesson, then a CBS producer, a most amazing lady [edited the fantastic book, Into the Buzzsaw, plus others], who was fired for her investigation into TWA 800, reported on that FBI clown, Jim Kallstrom - - should be a real eye-opener to clueless Americans!
Really, this book reads like an updated version of the Warren Commission and Warren Report - - witnesses not called and ignored, others having their testimony altered to suit the needs and whims of the corrupt FBI and CIA. The author recounts in detail the power plays and power payoffs to make this cover up work!
[SIDEBAR: That Bill Clinton sure does have all the problems with airliners: first the cover-up of the downing of TWA 800 - - next his recent highly suspicious and entirely and legally inappropriate airport tarmack meeting with Attorney General Lynch in Arizona - - and remember Congressman Hale Boggs, who died in a suspicious plane crash in Alaska? Guess who drove him to the airport to catch the plane there? Yup, Bill Clinton! {An enterprising Real Reporter, using his own funds, solve that one - - Boggs was simply collateral damage, the target of the Mafiosi planted bomb was the Alaskan politician he was aiding, as the criminal wanted him out of the way so he could marry his soon-to-be widow!}.]
