I don't believe that in the slightest. I am not a conspiracy theorist at all.

They were supposedly performing a military exercise that night.

It will be interesting to see what happens, if anything.

At the time I worked with a woman that lived in East Moriches. She was outside that night and she swore she saw a streak going towards the plane.

A cover up by our government? Yup, wouldn't surprise me in the least. They are self serving and will lie and do what ever it takes to CYA. You can't believe half of what they say.

I lived in NJ at the time and I remember the local news interviewing several eye witnesses who claimed they saw a bright streak head towards the plane before it exploded.

I have a house in the Hamptons, wasn't there that night, but at least 10 people I know also said they saw a streak moving toward the plane. Like LisaR, they're all convinced it was a missile accidentally sent off during a military exercise.

For those who believe it was possibly a terrorist attack, why would someone blow up a plane and not take credit? How would terrorists benefit from an attack that wasn't publicly linked to their cause?

They interviewed an Air Force pilot that saw a streak from the surface to the plane. This is someone who is trained to look for missiles and knows what they look like. He was on one news report, he was never interviewed again not was his interview shown again that I saw . As for terrorists not taking credit, how do we know they weren't picked up by coast guard or navy ships. Or maybe it to was covered up. Perhaps it was to get someone on be plane and the accident story help whoever did it just slip away. Not sure but I never agreed with the whole accident either and I usually don't go for the conspiracy thing .

I don't believe it was a terrorist attack for that very reason. I can't imagine someone not taking credit. I also don't think our government would cover up a terrorist attack. I know, I know! But I do believe the powers that be would want revenge for something like that and don't think it is something they would cover up. Now, if our own military accidentally took down the plane.....yeah, they would absolutely cover that up.

And this is what I have thought all along. Friendly Fire with a massive cover up.

I HATE conspiracy theories. Hate them. But, this is one I believe to be true.

And if it was an accident that the government covered up, it will still be covered up with the new 'investigation'. IMO, we will NEVER know the truth.

FTR, I do not believe it was an explosion within the plane. I think it was a missle. Not sure who fired it though.

There were a few pilots who flew Flight 800. One of them (who was NOT flying that day) had a wife who was an administrator at my school. Her husband knew every pilot and flight attendant who died on that flight. They never believed it was an accident either.

I too never believed it was an accident.

The other is United 93. I am less convinced about that one but I think it is possible that it was shot down to prevent it from being used against another building. I really wouldn't find fault in them if that was the case though I think they should have just owned up to it from the start if it was.
I think, there is more to Flight 800. Although, I do not believe, our government shot down Flight 93.
