TWA FLIGHT 800 crash witnesses fed up with the official
investigation formed the "TWA 800 Eyewitness Alliance,"
which published a full-page ad in the Washington Times
today demanding that the government tell the truth
about the crash. In bold-face type they proclaim:
"WE SAW TWA FLIGHT 800 SHOT DOWN BY MISSILES
AND WE WON'T BE SILENCED ANY LONGER
... We, the eyewitnesses know that missiles were involved.
We don't know who launched them, but we know that for some
reason our government has lied and tried to discredit all
of us to keep that question from being addressed. ... The
claim that our evidence is worthless is false and we want
to know who is behind it. Hundreds of us SAW what happened.
The FBI, the CIA and the NTSB must not be allowed to get
away with this cover-up by defamation of the eyewitnesses."

IAN: It's funny how the media and assorted defenders of
the official investigation tried to lead folks to believe
that those of us who were trying to make witness accounts
known were misrepresenting the accounts by our suggesting
that the witnesses saw or even thought they saw a missile.
Yet another defense of officialdom to the scrap heap.
It was shortly after the crash, after I'd interviewed
several witnesses that I realized there was something
here. Each of these people who I contacted based on
their names reported in the media was telling me about
the same thing, about a rocket that rose from a low
elevation fairly close to shore and that flew out to
sea, headed south, trailing smoke in its path. That
flight path was at 90 degrees to Flight 800's path,
so it could not be Flight 800. The rocket ended in
a small explosion -- the initial crash event. When
I accumulated all witness accounts from which a line-
of-sight could be established, I found that the rocket
that they observed came from the same area, and the area
was not the same as the crash. I then triangulated those
accounts http://www.erols.com/igoddard/witness.gif . Even
the accounts from which reliable line-of-sight could not
be established were looking in the same general area. Not
long thereafter retired Navy crash investigator Commander
William Donaldson published his own triangulation of many
more accounts than I had and his were based on interviews
on location. His triangulated close-to-shore launch site
is almost the same, one or two miles off my triangulation:

release of the NTSB report we discovered that the FBI had
also triangulated missile-witness accounts and the FBI had
triangulated accounts to virtually the same close-to-shore
location both Donaldson and I independently determined:

accounts are a human recording of what happened.
