As an example of an extensive government cover-up, there is the case of TWA Flight 800 from July 17, 1996. Over 30 witnesses claim to have seen an object shooting up in the air and hitting Flt 800 just before it exploded, similar to the imagery we've all seen from the first Gulf War (scud missiles flying UP). Government agencies, including the F.B.I. and NTSB, vehemently denied any existence of a missile that could have hit the plane. However, lots of Americans, including relatives of those...
