A horrific plane crash on the night of July 17, 1996 killed all 230 people on board TWA Flight 800. Passengers had departed from John F. Kennedy International Airport less than 15 minutes earlier en route to Paris. The long-held “official” conclusion has been that a fuel tank explosion caused the crash.

An experienced pilot named Andrew Danzinger who flew Barack Obama during his 2008 presidential campaign, says that’s not true in a recent article for the NY Daily News.

The bombshell article goes on to say the plane was likely shot down and that the FBI covered it up.

Was it a terrorist attack — a precursor to 9/11, as has been widely suggested — or a U.S. military training exercise gone wrong?
