Publisher's Summary

What really happened to TWA 800? On the 20th anniversary of the crash, author Jack Cashill reveals shocking new evidence.

TWA Flight 800 crashed into the Atlantic shortly after takeoff from JFK Airport on July 17, 1996, killing all 230 passengers onboard. Although initial reports suggested a terrorist attack, FBI and NTSB investigators blamed a fuel-tank explosion. But skeptics have long questioned the official story, and new evidence has surfaced that suggests a widespread conspiracy.

In TWA 800, historian Jack Cashill introduces new documents and testimonies that reveal the shocking true chain of events, from the disastrous crash to the high-level decision to create a cover story and the attempts to silence anyone who dared speak the truth.

    "Anti Clinton screed dressed up as TWA 800 story"

    If Cashill claims to be a historian or journalist, he should sue this book for slander. An endless array of poorly drawn conclusions based on incomplete information and analysis. The wreckage of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17, which was shot down by a missle, proves conclusively that TWA800 was not since its wreckage bears none of the missle damage found on MH17. A little detail convenietly ignored by the author.

    Story
    "Far More Than Another Anti-Clinton Screed"
    What made the experience of listening to TWA 800 the most enjoyable?

    The way Cashill packs an incredible amount of information into an enjoyable narrative.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack Cashill. He takes the listener along on the journey of his investigation of TWA 800 and his mostly unsuccessful attempts to try to bring the story to the elite media. Cashill and I probably don't agree on much politically but he has my highest regard.


    What about Richard Ferrone’s performance did you like?

    That he didn't get in the way of Cashill's narrative too much and didn't mispronounce many words. As I think another reviewer said his style is a little too close to that of Robert Stack in his Unsolved Mysteries days. This comes off as a little cheesy but overall it didn't distract me too much. He also mispronounces the last name of Clinton official Jaime Gorelick, whose name comes up a lot.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I had recently watched the excellent documentary "TWA Flight 800" and wanted to read a book on the subject. This was perfect. I found the information credible and well presented. I came away convinced. I used to be a huge skeptic about conspiracy theories. Now I don't even like to use that term because it discourages rational thought. If Cashill is right, which I believe he is, we cannot rely on our press, or our government, to give us accurate information about the most significant events of our times. Some of you might think that's obvious but this book really made that sink in for me.


    Any additional comments?

    I held off getting this one for a while because some of the reviews suggested that Cashill got a little carried away with the anti-Clinton rhetoric. One even charged that this was just another right wing election year polemic, like the kind Roger Stone has been putting out. As a man of the left I assure you it is not. It is possible the publisher thought the book would have added relevance with Hillary running but Cashill has been on this story for decades and is one of the leading independent researchers on the subject. Yes he does mention Benghazi, and compares the cover-up to TWA 800, but it's really for only a few paragraphs. You can easily skip them if you can't stand to read another word about Benghazi. I do think Cashill gives undo weight to the fact that this happened during the Bill Clinton presidency. I think most presidents would have tried to cover up this incident, especially in an election year.

    "Compelling!"

    Very compelling. I appreciated the recount of all the individuals involved and how they came about to be in those positions of power and influence. My prayers are with all of the families and friends that lost loved ones on TWA 800. Gratitude for this author and others who have persevered for the truth.

    "Everyone Should read this Book!"

    Very detailed look at the complete corruption behind the cover-up of the downing of
    TWA Filght 800 .The eye witness testimony of so many witnesses disregarded or changed and the numerous liars that were put in place by the CIA , FBI and White House to cover up this tragedy A great but depressing read that does nothing to restore my confidence in the government.

    "Could have been"

    This book started off as an investigative, well researched piece but then for some inexplicable reason became consumed with the Clintons and their dreadful deeds. I couldn't even finish the last few chapters. Very disappointing.

    "not for the aluminum foil hat crowd."

    This is interesting. It sounds like a career chaging snafu that could have cost Clinton his job. It was Bengazi before Begazi.

    Story
    "Thinly veiled partisan attack book"

    I agree with most of the research and conclusions regarding TWA800. I have never believed the fuel tank explosion story. However, it became apparent this is just a republican attack ad in book form, and that distracted from the legitimate investigation. Look at when it was released. This was a book to bash the Clinton's, disguised as an investigation into TWA 800. Even if I agree with the general gist of the story, and I am no big fan of the Clinton's, I got tired of the references to Benghazi and other tired Clinton attacks.
