No one here believes them. See TWA 800 crash due to fuel tank explosion. The similarities to the Lion air incident are dominating everyones' analysis except for those of Boeing and the FAA. This might all change once the recorders are read.

"most witnesses to the accident had seen a "streak of light" that was unanimously described as ascending,[1]:230 moving to a point where a large fireball appeared,

and much speculation that the reported streak of light was a missile that had struck TWA 800"

There was no missile. A number of witnesses 'saw' a missile.
