Kristina Borjesson has made a documentary about the downing of TWA Flight 800 in 1996—another tragedy that’s long been unbelievably explained (away) by the authorities.
>From Kristina Borjesson:
We¹ve filed some interesting lawsuits (see below). We filed one against the
CIA earlier, asking for them to give us un-redacted versions of the
documents showing how they came up with their (inaccurate) animation
discrediting the eyewitnesses. The NTSB is paying attention. We¹re
corresponding with them and they are seriously considering the petition.
Their 90 days to decide will be up mid-September. This will NOT be over if
they decide not to re-open. The film¹s release has garnered us free legal
help and lots of support not just from people around the country, but
victims’ family members and large numbers of former TWA employees‹there are
thousands of them. This fight is not going away. We’re looking for truth
and accountability. We just want you to know we¹re in it for the long haul.
If any of you want to see the documentary and petition that started the
ruckus, just go to EpixHD and sign up for a free two-week trial. You can
watch it for free. It took us 15 years to make the film.

FILES SUITS IN BOSTON FEDERAL COURT TO REQUIRE NAVY SEALS & MISSILE DEFENSE
AGENCY TO YIELD INFORMATION SHEDDING LIGHT ON CAUSE OF IN-FLIGHT EXPLOSION
Co-Producer of Controversial EPIX Documentary Seeks Judicial Help After
Inadequate Responses to FOIA Requests
Release of Documentary Film & Showings on Long Island Generate Support for
National Transportation Safety Board Re-investigation
After receiving inadequate responses to FOIA requests from the Naval Special
Warfare Command (NSWC), of which the Navy Seals is a component, and from the
Missile Defense Agency (MDA) of the U.S. Department of Defense, Tom Stalcup,
the physicist and independent investigator who co-produced the controversial
documentary aired last month on EPIX cable channel, ³TWA Flight 800,² has
asked a federal court in Boston to intervene. The suits were filed on
Thursday, August 15th.
Stalcup contends that since Navy SEALS participated in the recovery effort
of the bodies and airplane wreckage after the July 17, 1996 crash of TWA
flight 800 off the coast of Long Island NY, its claimed inability to locate
records describing these activities is not credible. He asks that the court
require the Navy to provide the relevant records.
Stalcup also argues that the MDA of the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD)
produce ³the names and dates of all Naval, Joint, Defense Program, and/or
contractor exercises, operations, and/or tests conducted on the East Coast
of the United States in June, July, and August, 1996,² and ³all Test and
Evaluation Master Plans for all systems involved in Missile Defense for
FY1996.² He asks the court to require DOD to produce its complete file on
TWA Flight 800.
Stalcup and former investigators for the National Transportation Safety
Board (NTSB), TWA, the TWA Pilots¹ Association, and the flight attendants
organization as well as over one hundred eye-witnesses to the explosion and
crash believe the official NTSB causal explanation‹the explosion of the
aircraft¹s center fuel tank‹is unsupported by the available evidence, has
never happened before or since the Flight 800 event, and should be
reexamined by reopening the investigation. They have filed a formal petition
which is now pending at the NTSB. They believe the preponderance of
available evidence indicates that the plane was downed by a military
After Stalcup¹s documentary aired on the EPIX premium cable channel last
month, support for the demand that the NTSB reopen its crash investigation
exploded at sold-out film showings on Long Island as members of crash
victims¹ families and other Long Island residents signed petitions addressed
to the agency.
