    I was watching the news, and George Stephanopolous was speaking (former aide to President Clinton). He was talking about acts of terrorism, and quoted Pearl Harbor, The Oklahoma City Bombing, and the "Bombing of TWA Flight 800!"
    WHAT???????
    Weren't we told that TWA Flight 800 an accident, caused by a spark in the gas tank???? Not a terrorist act, or bombing?!?!?!?!?
    Me thinks George knows more than he is willing to speak about.

    A mistake, sure, but Freudian? Had he put a T at the end of TWA, THAT would have been Freudian.

    Yea, George and the 100 or so eye witnesses. The only ones who thought it was an accident was the NTSB.

    Freudian Slips are not necessarily about sex (although they can be).
    The psychological term for a Freudian Slips is a Parapraxis.
    The defination, from the New Oxford Dictionary
    SYLLABICATION: par·a·prax·is
    PRONUNCIATION: pr-prkss
    NOUN: Inflected forms: pl. par·a·prax·es (-prksz)
    A minor error, such as a slip of the tongue, thought to reveal a repressed motive.
    So, therefore, my dear fiend . . . uhh. . . friend, you can see it is not a sexual term. That's about tit . . . I mean . . . it!

    I'm currently an aircraft maintenance technician for Delta Airlines. Have been for 13 years now and, I work all the large, international flights on the flightline itself, dealing with live aircraft.
    And, I can honestly tell you that there is damn near ZERO chance that TWA 800 came down due to a spark in the fuel tank.
    The coverup of that tragedy is truly staggering.....

    Wow, does anyone have a clip of this to post or direct me too? I sure would like to see and hear it. I would also like for a news agency to pick up on it and discuss it at a later date.

    Anyone catch Colin Powell on the Today Show yesterday? He said something about murder being against "the 10 Comm....every religion in the world." That one made me smirk.

    I don't know of any clip. We were watching the coverage on Tuesday, and he said this in the afternoon. Everyone in the room (granted, a room of investigators) said "What??? Oops!!! Did he just say bombing?"
    I hope someone has a clip of this somewhere.

    My Uncle's best friend was one of the witnesses to the missile attack on flight 800. Notice I say missile attack. This guy was a pilot and flew jets during Vietnam and he is 100% certain that the plane was shot down (probably by accident by our own forces).
    Our news media is controlled. It's that simple. The fact that the media never, ever even doubted the NTSB despite the mountain of evidence AND the reliable witnesses is just astonishing and sickening.

    Could he have been thinking of the TWA flight that was downed over Lockerbie & got confused with the flightcodes?

    Brian, I was thinking the same thing, but I wasn't sure if that was a TWA plane. Was it?
    Irving, TX was in the news yesterday, by the way.

    Brian and Mike,
    No, he had already mentioned the Pan Am flight over Lockerbee when he mentioned the TWA 800 "Bombing". He wasn't confused.
