New York - Was a bunch of extraterrestrials remote-controlling the Clinton/Gore Administration responsible for the terror attack that killed 230 people 17 years ago?
The reopening of the FBI's secret X-Files division this week will try to answer that one, focusing on the release of a new video showing an alien unidentified submersible object [USO] patrolling the Long Island waters between Moriches and Shinnecock Inlets close to where TWA Flight 800 went down with a full tank of gas on 17 July 1996.
Shot from a Bridgehampton resident's ocean-going yacht the footage was seized by US Coast Guards shortly after the disaster and impounded indefinitely on national security grounds.
Its publication this week reveals some sort of aquatic laser gun firing into the rosy sunset nimbus clouds high above where TWA 800's remains were found some 10 miles south east of Cupsogue Beach Country Park.
Official probes blamed a fuel tank explosion triggered by a mystery electrical spark - despite leaked shots of some kind of missile targeting the Boeing 747-100 shortly before impact.
The official cause of disaster verdict will now be re-examined following a new theory that reckons the sea attack was trying to shoot down TWA 800 so that its impact would obliterate some of Long Island's beachfront mansions.
A previous attack in December 1988 on a Pan Am flight over Lockerbie, Scotland, had been blamed squarely on Libya's mad dog despot Colonel Gaddafi, described by US law enforcement agencies as a client-dictator of the evil Illuminati-Extraterrestrial Alliance of the New World Odor (sic).
This morning US X-Files specialists confirmed that a powerful Big Oil resident from Long Island was to have been a passenger on the Lockerbie flight, cancelling at the last moment following a car crash enroute to the airport.
And the rest, as ever, is hystery.
