By Jack Cashill and James Sanders
With groundbreaking investigative journalism, "First Strike" uncovers substantial new information, including a terrorist connection, about the fate of TWA Flight 800.
Sept. 11, 2001, did not represent the first aerial assault against the American mainland. The first came July 17, 1996, with the downing of TWA Flight 800. This book looks in detail at what people saw and heard on that fateful night.
"First Strike" explains how a determined corps of ordinary citizens worked to reveal the compromise and corruption that tainted the federal investigation. With an impressive array of facts, Jack Cashill and James Sanders show the relationship between events in July 1996 and September 2001 and proclaim how and why the American government attempted to cover up the truth.
Jack Cashill, Emmy Award-winning writer and producer and executive editor of Ingram's, Kansas City's leading business magazine, produced documentaries for regional PBS and national cable channels and hosted daily talk radio shows for five years. His writing has appeared in Fortune, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, the Weekly Standard and on WND.
James Sanders, a police officer turned investigative reporter, has written two prior books on this subject, "The Downing of TWA Flight 800" and "Altered Evidence." In December of 1997, he and his wife Elizabeth, a TWA flight attendant and trainer, were arrested for conspiracy to steal government property after receiving material from a whistleblower within the Flight 800 investigation.
