Australian TV gives sympathetic hearing to TWA800 whistleblowers

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation's 60 Minutes program (not to be confused with the CBS program of the same name) recently aired a 20 minute segment on the TWA 800 crash investigation controversy in which they gave a quite sympathetic hearing (I thought) to the whistleblowers (who are alleging an intentional government coverup of a missile strike on the aircraft) and allowed them to make their case to the audience. You can watch the ABC video of this episode at the link: http://sixtyminutes.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=8726602

Did U.S. Gov’t Lie about TWA Flight 800 Crash? Ex-Investigators Seek Probe as New Evidence Emerges

Seventeen years ago, TWA Flight 800 crashed off Long Island, killing all 230 people aboard. The official government investigation blamed mechanical failure, but now a group of former investigators are petitioning the National Transportation Safety Board to reopen the probe, saying the original report was falsified. Was the plane accidentally shot down by the U.S. Navy conducting a nearby exercise, or was it a terrorist attack? We speak to the filmmakers behind a new documentary on the crash, "TWA Flight 800," former CBS News producer Kristina Borjesson and Tom Stalcup, a physicist and co-founder of Flight 800 Independent Researchers Organization. We also play an extended excerpt of the film "Shadows of Liberty," which also explores the controversy.
