The recent “final but not really final” Official Report on the still-mysterious disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 expresses bafflement…puzzlement…befuddlement…and offers a double-strength dose of non-closure to the survivors. But it does offer a hint: The plane was disappeared by “unlawful interference.”
The phrase “unlawful interference” would not be used to describe pilot suicide. Nor would it likely be employed to mean garden-variety terrorism. Instead, it is obviously a euphemism for some kind of interference with the flight conducted externally: possibly an accidental shootdown during a US-led war games exercise, but far more likely, a deliberate remote-hijacking. (An accidental shootdown would not be “unlawful” since the perpetrators had not intended to break any law.)
By far the most likely scenario is the one Peter Myers describes in the above-posted video. Malaysian PM Mahathir Mohamad is on record supporting the remote-hijacking hypothesis: “Clearly Boeing and certain agencies have the capacity to take over uninterruptible control of commercial airliners of which MH370 B777 is one.” Capture of the 20 Freestyle Semiconductor employees on board, along with their tech secrets en route to Beijing, remains the most plausible motive.
Dr. Matthias Chang, top advisor to Dr. Mohamad, noted on my radio show that the US suspiciously refuses to admit it tracked the plane, despite the fact that the flight path involved some of America’s most sensitive military areas:
“As MH370 reached the airspace of Vietnam it went north toward Thailand where the US-run Cobra Gold and Cope Tiger military exercises were being held. Then, allegedly, the plane ended in the Indian Ocean. But there is no evidence or debris. Now what is conspicuous…is that when a plane goes past Southern Thailand into the Indian Ocean, it has to fly past a very important landmark: Diego Garcia, a secretive US military base. It was from this base that the US launched bombers to Afghanistan, Iraq, and Vietnam before that. Surely this base has some of the most sophisticated surveillance technology. Any unidentified plane that flew in the direction of Diego Garcia would certainly be located and identified.”
Like the official story about Flight 77, the plane that supposedly hit the Pentagon on 9/11 after flying from Ohio to DC without being detected by any civilian or military surveillance (!) the claim that the US “didn’t see nuthin'” of MH370 is preposterous—and strong evidence of guilt.
