Malaysian Prime Minister Suggests CIA Involvement In Missing MH370 Plane

Missing MH370: Former PM Suggests CIA Involvement, Book Says Plane May Have Been Shot Down

2014 05 19 By Red Ice Creations 

In the gaping hole of speculation left where the Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 used to be, the mainstream is rushing in to provide a narrative of what happened.

A former Malaysian Prime Minister is now suggesting the flight’s disappearance might have had CIA involvement, and it’s being revealed that war games and military drills may have been held in the area at the time, leading some to wonder if the plane might have been shot down.

Too Soon?

Even though very few facts are known in this case, the book Flight MH370 The Mystery has already been published on the issue by author Nigel Cawthorne. Hollywood is pitching a movie in time for the Cannes Film Festival, with some critics caustically suggesting that the ’ink is still wet’ on the scripts.

The ink may well be wet, but worse yet the victims are still missing. The families are still demanding answers, but it’s doubtful that book deals and suspense movies are going to help them find closure, when the authorities responsible for the investigations are still providing no answers.

As the mystery drags on without resolution, researchers, family members and now even politicians are voicing worries that there was more to the MH370 disappearance than meets the eye.

Mahathir Mohamad, influential former Prime Minister of Malaysia, has suggested the plane could have been switched onto autopilot remotely by the CIA, and the newly published book describes joint Thai-US military exercises being held in the South China Sea at the time of the flight disappearance. Still others suggest that "U.S. military black site Diego Garcia, located in the Indian Ocean" was a likely destination for a remotely controlled airliner.

Hopefully these angles will be investigated, because many are voicing the thought that the search for debris in the ocean is a fruitless exercise.

Former Malaysian Leader Accuses CIA of Cover-Up in Missing Jet
By Barbara Tasch | TIME

The former Malaysian Prime Minister accused the C.I.A., Boeing and the media of covering up crucial facts about the missing plane

A former Malaysian leader on Sunday accused American intelligence agents of covering up what really happened to the Malaysia Airlines plane missing since March.

Former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad claimed that Flight 370, which disappeared on March 8 with 239 people on board, claimed that the CIA could have taken control of the Boeing 777, and lamented that the Malaysian government is bearing the brunt of the blame for a mystery that sparked a massive, expensive and as-of-yet unsuccessful international search for the plane.

“What goes up must come down,” Mohamad wrote in a blog post. “Airplanes can go up and stay up for long periods of time. But even they must come down eventually. They can land safely or they may crash. But airplanes don’t just disappear. 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.”

Mohamad said “the ‘uninterruptible’ autopilot would be activated—either by pilot, by on board sensors, or even remotely by radio or satellite links by government agencies like the Central Intelligence Agency, if terrorists attempt to gain control of the flight deck.”

First book on MH370 mystery blames US war games.
Tim Barlass | The Sydney Morning Herald

Seventy-one days after Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 disappeared, the first book about the disaster will go on sale on Monday with a theory about what might have happened.

And as the international search continues for the aircraft Irene Burrows, the Queensland mother who lost her son and daughter-in-law on the flight, said it was too soon for a book.

Flight MH370 The Mystery, which is made available by NewSouth Books in Sydney, doesn’t claim to have any answers but to some extent supports the theory that the aircraft may have been accidentally shot down during a joint Thai-US military exercise in the South China Sea. Searchers were then possibly led in the wrong direction to cover up the mistake, it suggests.

’’In an age where a stolen smart phone can be pinpointed to any location on earth, the vanishing of this aircraft and 227 passengers is the greatest mystery since the Mary Celeste,’’ the publicity for the book reads.

The Sun-Herald is the first media outlet in Australia to see the work, written by author and journalist Nigel Cawthorne. It records the events, emotions and theories unfolding on a backdrop of fruitless searches.

Cawthorne says in the introduction that ’’almost certainly’’ relatives will never be sure what happened to their loved ones.

’’Did they die painlessly, unaware of their fate? Or did they die in terror in a flaming wreck, crashing from the sky in the hands of a madman?’’

He says this raises the significance that around the time the plane’s transponder went off at 01.21, New Zealander Mike McKay, working on an oil rig in the Gulf of Thailand, saw a burning plane. He links that to the joint Thai-US military exercise going on in the South China Sea with personnel from China, Japan, Indonesia and other countries.

’’The drill was to involve mock warfare on land, in water and in the air, and would include live-fire exercises,’’ he writes.

’’Say a participant accidentally shot down Flight MH370. Such things do happen. No one wants another Lockerbie [Pan Am flight 103 by terrorists in 1988 allegedly in retaliation for a US Navy strike on an Iranian commercial jet six months earlier], so those involved would have every reason to keep quiet about it.’’

He suggests through anonymous and contradictory sources, they might release misinformation, leading people to search in the wrong place in an environment so hostile that it would be unlikely anything would ever be found.

’’After all, no wreckage has been found in the south Indian Ocean, which in itself is suspicious,’’ Cawthorne writes.

’’Now I’m not saying that’s what happened but if a black box is found, who is to say that it is from Flight MH370? Another black box could have been dropped in the sea 1000 miles from Perth while the search was going on in the South China Sea. In these circumstances, with the amount of disinformation abroad, it is best to be sceptical.’’
