    My impression is that it's not about new evidence, it's about suppressed evidence. Coverups DO happen. No conspiracy nuts required.

    I'm a science guy, not a conspiracy theory advocate. This is based on now retired and safe from repercussion participants' ignored findings. That said I think there are sincere differences in every endeavor and that the original findings are most likely correct. I hope to watch and will be open.

    Yeah. The main "whistleblowers" complaint was that the FBI were jerks. Not that there was any suppressed evidence, but that he was treated poorly by the FBI who acted like they were in charge.

    Which is pretty standard FBI.

    The witness who say they "saw a missile" also say they heard a loud noise and that's what made them look up. Then they saw a "missile". Well, the loud noise they heard was the explosion. Unless we posit a situation where a missile was inbound to destroy it and had the incredible timing to arrive just a few seconds after the wing tank exploded, then the timeline doesn't work. The explosion preceded the line of fire that they saw.

    I saw a piece on CNN last week. The guys coming forward 17 years later seemed like cranks to me. I found the FBI guy (Kalstrom sp.) far more credible. It seems like a cynical attempt at a money grab by people getting on in life.

    And as with all cover up allegations, it's too damn hard to keep the lid on these things. No sold.

    And we all know that sound travels slower than light.

    I thought the evidence based on the reconstruction of the plane was pretty conclusive that the explosion can from inside the plane. I remember seeing g pictures of this when the original report was released.
