Former Malaysian Prime Minister, Mahathir Mohamad believes that the CIA, USA and Boeing, all know what happened to missing Malaysian Flight MH370 but, are “hiding” that information.
In his blog, Mahathir states that ‘The plane is somewhere,’ he said. ‘Someone is hiding something. It is not fair that MAS and Malaysia should take blame,” and appears to be saying that the CIA “remotely” took control of MH370.
It’s also the former Malaysian PM’s belief that MH370 has had its logo stripped and is being hidden somewhere, something that a lot of people have begun to believe though perhaps, not under those exact circumstances.
“The plane is somewhere, maybe without MAS (Malaysia Airlines) markings,” he scribed in his blog this past weekend.
While a lot of people have the theory that MH370 was hijacked and might be on land somewhere, Malaysia’s former 88-year-old Prime Minister, is not without controversy. He’s been well-known for coming up with theories that have somewhat shocked mainstream society. One theory was that the 9/11 attacks were orchestrated for the purposes of invading Muslim countries, a theory that many have held since 9/11. No one has proven it wrong but, no one can prove it correct either.
“It is a waste of time and money to look for debris or oil slick or to listen for pings from the black box.
“It is a waste of time and money to look for debris or oil slick or to listen for pings from the black box. Airplanes don’t just disappear,” he’s written. “Certainly not these days with all the powerful communication systems, radio and satellite tracking and filmless cameras which operate almost indefinitely and possess huge storage capacities.”
He then, goes on to blame the CIA and Boeing by stating, “Surely Boeing would ensure that they cannot be easily disabled as they are vital to the safety and operation of the plane. For some reason, the media will not print anything that involves Boeing or the CIA.”
Meanwhile, Malaysia’s Defense Minister, Husshamudin Hussein, was busy defending Malaysia’s decision not to send up military planes when they spotted an un-identified aircraft crossing Malaysian airspace.
He stated that as early as 2:00 a.m. or about a half hour after 370 appeared to be missing, Malaysia’s Civil Aviation Authority had telephoned the military. That led to more speculation as he said that the plane had been tracked in “real-time” but, had been deemed “friendly” and had been allowed to continue flying into the Southern Indian Ocean.
The statement was in conflict with earlier statements where Malaysian authorities had stated that it was only in play-back that the military realized that it might have been Flight MH370.
When asked why jets weren’t sent up, Husshamudin answered, ‘It was commercial, it was in our air space, we were not at war with anybody.’ Then, went on to ask why they would send up military jets unless they were going to shoot it down. He continued by saying, “if we weren’t going to shoot it down, what was the purpose of sending them (jets) up?”
It doesn’t take a genius to see double and defensive talking going on here.
Malaysia’s authorities have been full of controversy in what they’ve said, taken back, let out and not let out all throughout this mysterious disappearance of a 777 Boeing plane with modern avionics technology available. No wreckage, no debris, no oil slicks, nothing at all to support the idea that MH370 has crashed in over 4 million square miles of ocean surface covered thus far by searchers. Conflicting statements made by Malaysian authorities, including statements made perhaps, prematurely about the death of all 239 passengers and crew aboard the missing plane.
Malaysia had let that plane pass over its airspace, figuring it was a commercial and friendly plane but meanwhile, MH370 had dropped off the radar and Malaysia had given false information to hand-off control towers by saying that the plane was over Cambodian Air Space when it was crossing back over Malaysia. Viet Nam was the one who contacted Cambodia to find out that it was not in fact, over their air space. It was then, that Malaysia admitted that it didn’t have a physical whereabouts but, rather an expected flight path.
Hours went by before Malaysia declared MH370 as “missing”. Why? Why did so much time pass if Malaysia didn’t know where 370 was, they’d spotted an unidentified aircraft at 2:00 a.m. crossing Malaysian airspace and knew it (according to Hushamudin’s statements)? Would it not be a reasonable and rational conclusion to come to that something was and is amiss with this?
Most experts now believe that the plane’s 2 communications systems (the transponder and Acars) had both been deliberately shut down by someone on the plane. Just between the sign-off with Kuala Lumpur and the hand-off to Vietnamese air traffic controllers was to have taken place, that’s when all communication systems ceased.
‘It should have been “Good night Malaysia, good morning Vietnam” – as quick as that. It didn’t happen,’ said a former pilot and chief with Malaysian Airlines.
It took only seconds for that switch to have taken place between both systems.
As controversial as Malaysia’s elderly, former Prime Minister might be, he may not be far off the mark in the idea that something sinister happened to MH370 and that the plane may be readied to use for other purposes. Just what, no one knows. However, it means that if the plane were to have been hijacked for other purposes and is on land, it’s feasible that the 239 passengers and crew are not in their watery graves in the Southern Indian Ocean as hypothesized according to Inmarsat, the British Satellite company’s data and calculations have indicated is the most likely scenario.
Last but, not least, Malaysia has now said that it will release the raw Inmarsat data to the public. This will allow families of the missing passengers and crew members to hire independent researchers to look into the data and decide if there’s any merit to what has already been hypothesized or, whether there should be other areas and other ideas explored.
Frankly, from my little corner of life, I believe that fresh eyes and minds should prevail and that there’s a good chance that MH370 is somewhere else, on land. But, I may be sounding a little bit like a conspiracy theorist or perhaps, out there with the former Malaysian Prime Minister. Either way, this search needs to be re-thought and re-planned because something is rotten in this entire scenario.
