I don't know what brought down TWA Flight 800. It seems unlikely it was a
Navy missile. But what is even more unlikely is that hundreds of people --
starting with the entire crew of a Navy destroyer and extending all the way
up to the President -- would participate in a cover-up.

Are you suggesting the Navy intentionally downed a passenger airliner? Or
are you suggesting one individual pushed the wrong button at the wrong
time, and now hundreds of people in multiple organizations (including
absolutely everyone involved in the investigation) are desperately trying
to conceal the truth?

Sorry, I'm not ready to junk *all other* theories -- especially when this
theory is largely based on information provided by "anonymous" sources.
