TWA flight 800 - ten year anniversary

Today is the tenth anniversary of the destruction of TWA flight 800 near Long Island.

There have been many theories as to what happened. The government eventually provided some explanation that no one can remember. One thing that the establishment agrees upon is that the crash was definitely not caused by terrorism, despite bomb powder found on a seat cover and numerous eyewitnesses. I remember the bomb powder story coming out in the mainstream press in September 1996, only to be quickly retracted later that day or the next day.

I think that Al Qaeda became frustrated in the 1990's because we continuously characterized their airline attacks as accidents. 9-11 was partially the result of bin Laden's desire to create an attack that could not be mistaken for an accident.

I also believe that if, on 9-11, only one plane had crashed into the World Trade Center, the government would have characterized the attack as an accident. Try to imagine the official response from the government and the MSM/DNC in that scenario. Those who pointed out the presence of multiple arab travelers on the plane and numerous cell phone calls from passengers in the moments before the crash would be dismissed as paranoid conspiracy theorists. Afghanistan would today be ruled by the Taliban and Iraq would be ruled by Saddam Hussein. There would have been no crackdown on domestic terrorists. And there would have been many additional unexplained airline crashes in the United States ever since.

Remember also, the MSM/DNC game plan as it relates to terrorist attacks that occured prior to 2001 (and how we can combat that game plan):
For the benefit of the left and the MSM/DNC, here is a chronology:

(1) Global terrorism occurred many times over the past thirty or more years.

(2) We began to fight back, including the liberation of Afghanistan and Iraq.

(3) The MSM/DNC began a relentless campaign to reverse the order of ## 1 and 2 in the minds of the public. That is a very difficult task. Judging from the last election, this strategy has worked with only 47% of the voters.

previous anniversaries down the memory hole - TWA flight 847, Achille Lauro, African embassy bombings.
