So, Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 is still missing, nearly a week after it disappeared from radar screens and any communication to third parties. We still don’t know what happened, while there are a lot of theories, including reports saying the Pentagon believes it went down in the Indian Ocean. I’ve given you my take, earlier this week. But there’s another plausible possibility posited by my smart friends, Fred Taub of Boycott Watch and radio talk show host Brett Winterble.
The plane might have been hijacked by Muslims on board–whether it was the Iranians or other Muslims on the plane. They might have ordered the transponder turned off or known how to do it themselves. Or perhaps the plane’s pilot and co-pilot helped them. Any of these could have happened. And since we’ve learned the plane flew for hours after the transponder and other radar, tracing, and communications equipment were turned off, they might have flown the plane to one of many choices of Islamic-controlled, extremist countries, such as Somalia or Pakistan. There are runways all over these countries, some big enough to handle that plane, some not.
And maybe, after landing the plane in one of these places, the plane was moved into a hangar or under trees where satellites wouldn’t see it. And maybe they are planning to use the plane as a bomb in a later attack, 9/11 style but on some other building or target elsewhere in the world. Or maybe it was a dry run to see if they could get a plane to just disappear and see how the world reacts. If that’s the case, so far it’s mission accomplished.
By the way, the cover story that the Iranian Muslims using fake passports were seeking asylum is, frankly, irrelevant. Many Muslim terrorists seek asylum and I’ve written about them, including today. It’s a nice, if weak, cover story, though.
So, what do you think? What happened to MH370? Where is it? Was it blown up by a terrorist bomb? Or was it stolen and put somewhere for later, evil use? Are the passengers still alive?
