CITING ONGOING MALFEASANCE AND CONFLICT OF INTEREST ISSUES, TWA 800 PROJECT INVESTIGATIVE TEAM SUBMITS LETTER OF PROTEST AND AFFIDAVIT TO NATIONAL TRANSPORTATION SAFETY BOARD

After corresponding with the NTSB for more than one year and meeting with NTSB staff to present additional evidence, the TWA 800 Project Investigative Team has submitted a letter of protest (see below) and an affidavit (see below)  by retired NTSB senior NTSB accident investigator Hank Hughes.

The letter of protest contains a chronology of the Team’s communication with the NTSB following the submission of their petition in June 2013.  The letter details the Board’s failure to publicly correct inaccurate statements their representatives made to the press and public about facts of evidence and eyewitness accounts as well as the Board’s failure to address evidence the Team has provided regarding current Managing Director David Mayer’s role in altering forensic evidence and misrepresenting eyewitness accounts during the original crash investigation.

The Team also expresses their concern about the NTSB staff reviewing their petition being in a conflict of interest position because they are subordinates of Dr. Mayer.

The letter of protest is buttressed by an Affidavit by retired senior NTSB accident investigator Hank Hughes that provides a detailed insider account of who did what during the original crash investigation to alter, taint and suppress evidence.  Hughes points to members of the three main agencies involved in the investigation, including the NTSB leadership, FBI agents and a CIA team that produced an animation showing that the eyewitnesses “did not see a missile” as the primary culprits responsible for derailing the original crash investigation.

The letter of protest was submitted in response to the NTSB’s denying TWA 800 victims’ family members request that the Investigative Team be allowed to make an oral presentation to NTSB Board Members pertaining to their petition and additional findings. __________________  1) Letter of Protest: https://twa800project.files.wordpress.com/2014/06/stalcup-hughes-to-tochen-f inal.pdf This letter   lists the TWA 8o0 Project Investigative Team’s year-long and ongoing efforts to correct the official record that continues to be tainted by corrupt and misinformed current and former NTSB officials.  Nearly all of the Team’s efforts have been blocked by top NTSB officials.  For example, we have never been allowed to directly communicate or exchange information with any NTSB staff member reviewing our petition.  Also, our repeated requests that the NTSB correct inaccurate information its current and former staff members have supplied to the US media since the submission of our petition have been denied.
