VERNON GROSE, former NTSB board member and CNN commentator on TWA 800
In this extraordinary book, Jack CashillAmerica’s greatest investigative reporterprovides new and overwhelming evidence that the official explanation [of TWA 800] from the Clintons couldn’t possibly be true, and that something is very, very wrong at both the FBI and the CIA.”
HERBERT E. MEYER, former National Intelligence Council vice chairman
Jack Cashill has done it again. He is one of the great investigative journalists in America, at a time that it has become a lost art. In his new book, TWA 800: The Crash, the Cover-Up and the Conspiracy, he walks us through one of the most important and revealing stories of the last twenty years . He also presents new evidence and fresh perspectives, linking the cover-up to today’s presidential race.”
ROGER ARONOFF, editor of Accuracy in Media and producer of the award-winning documentary TWA 800: The Search for the Truth
Jack Cashill has worked tirelessly for almost twenty years to bring the truth of what really happened to TWA Flight 800 to the public, and most of all, to the families who lost loved ones on that flight. Because I lost my son, Yon Rojany, that fateful night of July 17, 1996and never believed the government line about a spark in the center fuel tankI am forever indebted to Jack. This book is a compelling read laying out the facts of what really happened. It is a book you won’t be able to put down. Thank you, Jack!”
LISA MICHELSON, family member of TWA 800 victim TWA 800
A transparent fraud exposed! In 2003 Jack and I wrote First Strike, an account of the TWA Flight 800 shoot-down, exposing evidence uncovered as of 2003. Now, in 2016, Cashill tells a compelling story based on evidence uncovered over the last nineteen plus years. It is a book that should be a runaway best sellerbut will not. Dominant eastern media, led by the New York Times, has far too much to lose, as do the National Security State and important political players from 1996.”
JAMES SANDERS, author of The Downing of TWA Flight 800
Outstanding! Co-counsel Mark Lane and I had the honor of bringing Jim and Liz Sanders’ civil rights lawsuit against eight government officials who participated in the cover-up. Later, I had the pleasure of prosecuting Ray Lahr’s FOIA lawsuit. Astonishingly, to keep the truth of the missile strike from the American people, the government concealed all the physical evidence, and the eyewitness accounts, with the cooperation of the media. In TWA 800, Jack Cashill proves it, succinctly.”
JOHN CLARKE, attorney

I have not researched the TWA 800 disaster as thoroughly as Cashill and others. However, I have followed the story from the beginning and am familiar with many of the holes in the government’s version of events. Cashill’s presentation of the facts is highly understandable and compelling. The book is essential reading for anybody who cares about the survival of the rule of law in America.
The government never provided credible explanations for various facts, including, 1) the hundreds of eyewitness accounts of an object appearing to be a missile or missiles intercepting TWA 800; 2) radar data showing an airborne object or objects intercepting TWA 800; 3) radar images of a ship moving away from the crash site at a relatively high speed as many other ships were moving to the crash site; 4) a Central Intelligence Agency-produced video showing TWA 800 ascending (which is a physical impossibility) after it lost its cockpit and first-class section, that was part of the government’s attempt to discredit eyewitnesses who reported seeing a missile or missiles ascending; and 5) the government’s demonstrably false explanation for the presence of residue found on TWA 800 wreckage that was indicative of a missile.
There was more information that Cashill could have used to make his attack on the U.S. Government’s position even more persuasive. For example, Cashill discusses the possibility that a missile accidently fired by the United States Navy exploded in close proximity to TWA 800. Cashill did not discuss the evidence from TWA 800’s flight data recorder indicating that there was an overpressure event outside of the plane consistent with such an explosion. You can read about it by searching in Google for “TWA Flight 800: THE FDR EVIDENCE OF OVERPRESSURE.”
A related example is the discussion of radar data showing what appears to be airborne debris moving faster than would be the case if the only explosive event was the explosion of the center fuel tank, as advocated by the Federal Government. According to “The TWA 800 Project” the radar data is consistent with an explosion from a missile. You can read about it by searching Google for “NTSB Petition to Reconsider TWA Flight 800 Probable Cause” and “The TWA 800 Project's Corrections to the July 2014 National Transportation Safety Board Response to the Petition for Reconsideration.” The driving force behind the TWA 800 Project is physicist Thomas Stalcup, who is discussed in Cashill’s book.
One of the examples of the news media’s abdication of its responsibility jumped out at me. Cashill writes about receiving a call from a Cable News Network producer in 2001 inviting him to appear on CNN to discuss the TWA 800 disaster. As soon as I began reading this, I was sure how the episode would end. A couple of pages later, it ended the same way as it ended for me: CNN called back to cancel the appearance. The same thing happened to me after I orally argued my Freedom of Information Act case before the United States Supreme Court on December 3, 2003 regarding photos of deceased Deputy White House Counsel Vincent Foster’s body.
While hardly surprising, the painstaking detailing of government corruption -- from silencing and discrediting witnesses, to instructing the FBI to tamper with evidence to fit the desired narrative, to arresting two innocent people who dared to uncover to the truth -- should make every American angry. Cashill connects the dots and provides ample evidence to support his assertions. He also recounts his biased treatment by the media, including the supposedly "fair and balanced" network, in branding him a "conspiracy theorist" and giving him a ridiculously short amount of time to address complex questions and respond to criticism.
In terms of the witnesses themselves, what surprised me the most was that many were aviation and military professionals -- not attention-seekers after their "fifteen minutes of fame." Their passion for and relentless pursuit of truth, along with the author's, provides a stark contrast to the self-aggrandizing bureaucrats and government "leaders" complicit in the election year cover-up. Using the example of Rep. Kurt Weldon, the book is also cautionary tale for any honest person who seeks and serves political office for noble reasons and dares to take a stand for justice.
The corruption at every level of government is staggering: how these people live with themselves is beyond comprehension.
To skeptics and believers alike, all I can say is read the book before you draw any conclusions. And thank you, Jack Cashill, for your tireless efforts to uncover the truth about TWA 800.
