I swear these conspiracy theories will persist until the end of time.
I wonder why no one has ever suggested Rockefeller wasn't behind the sinking of the Titanic, or the King of Prussia was behind Lincoln's assassination .... or FDR burned up the Hindenberg? :?
This is getting tiresome.
We are definitely getting to a point where we can amiably agree to disagree. As far as the eyewitnesses goes I offer this:TommyGunn said:In all probability, we will never have all the answers. I have a feeling that people come up with questions based on false premises a lot of times when mysteries like Flight 800 happen.
I recall watching a TV documentary on the Hindenburg explosion. For a long time there was speculation about there being some type of bomb on board (a George C. Scott movie was made about that one), or some kind of electrical or lightning effect starting the fire. I was pretty surprised when it was revealed (fairly recently, historically speaking) that the Germans applied a type of varnish to the dirigible that was very flammable. I mean, everyone was blaming the hydrogen gas (which of course was a large part of the problem) but it turned out that varnish would have flared up very well had some type of lightning hit it.
The sinking of the R.M.S. Titanic has been slightly re-written. For decades it was believed a long 300 foot gash was opened, but recent investigations seem to indicate the starboard bow received a poke here, a jab there, and enough holes were opened up, enough rivets were popped, to sink the ship. But it also seems there might have been additional damage along the bottom of the ship.
So a lot of things are not always quite as they seem, or should be, atleast from the history books.
I am naturally skeptical of witness testimony, as I said. I should think it rather unusual to "happen to be looking" up in the sky at a plane at the right time to see the initial explosion or event. I would think it far more likely one might see, in their peripheral vision, some kind of flash which would draw their attention to the consequences. Seeing only that, they might not know what initially caused it .... but they might mistakenly think they did know. ...... Or -- they might hear a explosion. In this case, the fact that sound travels comparatively slowly ... they might notice the crash even farther along in progress, and be even less aware of what caused the event.
My central problem with the missile theory is that no one can apparantly account for the missile, and no group has taken credit for it. IIRC, the aircraft was too high for a Stinger missile, or a Strella, man-portable shoulder launched IR guided missile. That would leave a larger missile with some kind of ground based launch system (which could mean ship-based to be more specific).
I am not ruling out this (heck, I'm not ruling out Klingons for that matter) but I'm just saying what I believe to be the case.
Did I trust the Clinton Administration? Heck no. Their shenanigans and Clinton's impeachment show they (and he) were very capable of lying. Hillary "lost" records in relationship to the Rose Law Firm .... but they were discovered in the White House Library, literally with her fingerprinst on them
But with the missile theory there would come a lot of people outside the white house who would know and be far more willing to blab ...like Dick Morris blabbing about Slick Willie's involvement with Waco recently.
Strange mechanical/electrical malfunctions do happen in life. This to me seems more likely than a mystery missile.
Yes I was-when there are a number of possible scenarios to explain an observation, the least complex solution is often the correct one.TommyGunn said:
