ONE YEAR LATER: THE MYSTERY OF MALAYSIA AIR 370 CONTINUES: PART TWO: ...

Yesterday, you'll recall, I began this two part blog by reviewing the following excellent article, shared with us by Mr. E.G., and by also referring to my interview with Ms. George Anne Hughes of The Byte Show which I gave within a week of Malaysia Air Flight 370's initial disappearance:

How Crazy Am I to Think I Acually Know where that Malaysia Airline Plane is?

 

As the article notes, Mr. Weiss began to be suspicious of the satellite tracking data for MH 370, and, upon finding a glitch, began to entertain somewhat the opposite of what the public story - never a fully agreed upon story - was maintaining. He began by pointing out that the "black box" evidence for an Indian Ocean crash was anything but conclusive:

"Guided by Inmarsat’s calculations, Australia, which was coordinating the investigation, moved the search area 685 miles to the northeast, to a 123,000-square-mile patch of ocean west of Perth. Ships and planes found much debris on the surface, provoking a frenzy of BREAKING NEWS banners, but all turned out to be junk. Adding to the drama was a ticking clock. The plane’s two black boxes had an ultrasonic sound beacon that sent out acoustic signals through the water. (Confusingly, these also were referred to as “pings,” though of a completely different nature. These new pings suddenly became the important ones.) If searchers could spot plane debris, they’d be able to figure out where the plane had most likely gone down, then trawl with underwater microphones to listen for the pings. The problem was that the pingers  had a battery life of only 30 days.

"On April 4, with only a few days’ pinger life remaining, an Australian ship lowered a special microphone called a towed pinger locator into the water.Fig. 8 Miraculously, the ship detected four pings. Search officials were jubilant, as was the CNN greenroom. Everyone was ready for an upbeat ending.

"The only Debbie Downer was me. I pointed out that the pings were at the wrong frequency and too far apart to have been generated by stationary black boxes. For the next two weeks, I was the odd man out on Don Lemon’s six-guest panel blocks, gleefully savaged on-air by my co-experts.

"The Australians lowered an underwater robotFig. 9 to scan the seabed for the source of the pings. There was nothing. Of course, by the rules of TV news, the game wasn’t over until an official said so. But things were stretching thin. One night, an underwater-search veteran taking part in a Don Lemon panel agreed with me that the so-called acoustic-ping detections had to be false. Backstage after the show, he and another aviation analyst nearly came to blows. “You don’t know what you’re talking about! I’ve done extensive research!” the analyst shouted. “There’s nothing else those pings could be!”

Thus, Mr. Weiss began to suspect that the satellite data had been doctored:

"By combining the data with other reliable information, we were able to put together a time line of the plane’s final hours: Forty minutes after the plane took off from Kuala Lumpur, MH370 went electronically dark. For about an hour after that, the plane was tracked on radar following a zigzag course and traveling fast. Then it disappeared from military radar. Three minutes later, the communications system logged back onto the satellite. This was a major revelation. It hadn’t stayed connected, as we’d always assumed. This event corresponded with the first satellite ping. Over the course of the next six hours, the plane generated six more handshakes as it moved away from the satellite."

And so he came to a reasonable conclusion:

"For one, I was bothered by the lack of plane debris. And then there was the data. To fit both the BTO and BFO data well, the plane would need to have flown slowly, likely in a curving path. But the more plausible autopilot settings and known performance constraints would have kept the plane flying faster and more nearly straight south. I began to suspect that the problem was with the BFO numbers—that they hadn’t been generated in the way we believed.14 If that were the case, perhaps the flight had gone north after all.

"For a long time, I resisted even considering the possibility that someone might have tampered with the data. That would require an almost inconceivably sophisticated hijack operation, one so complicated and technically demanding that it would almost certainly need state-level backing. This was true conspiracy-theory material.

"And yet, once I started looking for evidence, I found it. One of the commenters on my blog had learned that the compartment on 777s called the electronics-and-equipment bay, or E/E bay, can be accessed via a hatch in the front of the first-class cabin.15 If perpetrators got in there, a long shot, they would have access to equipment that could be used to change the BFO value of its satellite transmissions. They could even take over the flight controls."

And thus we have arrived at Mr. Weiss' theory, which we may call the "Putin did it" theory, which it would seem even Mr. Weiss himself is a bit uncomfortable with:

Why, exactly, would Putin want to steal a Malaysian passenger plane? I had no idea. Maybe he wanted to demonstrate to the United States, which had imposed the first punitive sanctions on Russia the day before, that he could hurt the West and its allies anywhere in the world. Maybe what he was really after were the secrets of one of the plane’s passengers.25 Maybe there was something strategically crucial in the hold. Or maybe he wanted the plane to show up unexpectedly somewhere someday, packed with explosives. There’s no way to know. That’s the thing about MH370 theory-making: It’s hard to come up with a plausible motive for an act that has no apparent beneficiaries.(Italicized emphasis added)

Now, if you've been paying attention to all of this, and to the interaction of Mr. Weiss' article written last moth of this year, and my interview of almost a year ago to the day with Ms. George Anne Hughes on The Byte Show last year, you'll notice that Mr. Weiss, in effect, is saying very much the same thing in a very general sort of way, though for different reasons, as I stated on Ms. Hughes' show last year: namely (1) satellite and radar tracking data can be faked, and, the longer the delay in releasing such data after the initial disappearance, the more skeptical one should be. Now one point separates Mr. Weiss and I, namely, (2) that he thinks only the direction of the flight satellite data was obfuscated and falsified, from a northward flight, to the south, whereas I think one has to entertain that all of it may be concocted. Which brings us to Mr. Weiss's "Putin did it" theory.

Of course, Putin is blamed for everything now, from financial corruption at the Federal Reserve to vitamin deficiencies in the American diet to falling tests scores in American schools. If there's a problem, it's Mr. Putin's fault. Mr. Weiss, again to his credit and for maintaining the reasonable and rational argument of his case, points out that he has difficulty assigning a motive to Mr. Putin hijacking such a scenario.

And that was my problem precisely one year ago, scarcely a week after the flight's disappearance, on Ms. Hughes' show: not only was there no credible geopolitical motivation for him to have done so, there was really no motivation for anyone else to have done so either: not the USA, not China, not even the always-blameable Israelis. As I pointed out then, in the highly charged geopolitical atmosphere following the US-sponsored Ukrainian coup, if the US had even suspected the tiniest whiff of such a stunt on Putin's part, for which he had little to gain, everything to lose in the court of world opinion, and a highly risky operation, the USA and various Western media organs would have been pouring out a stream of invective, while their intelligence agencies busily concocted the "evidence" to give the story some sort of life. The same thing holds true in reverse: if Russia or China suspected US or Israeli involvement, their media organs would be pouring out a stream of accusations and concocting the evidence to support it. Mr Weiss' scenario involves obviously complex planning to arrange the flight data obfuscation on board the plane itself, but I contend that this can be done anywhere, from the plane to the "receiving end" or, to put it more bluntly, by simply concocting it anywhere and "releasing it". In the Internet age of massive electronic surveillance, one cannot rule out the possibility that the information can be injected by those with access and ability to do so at any point in the data stream.

Which brings us back to my initial "wackadoodle" hypotheses that I advanced on Ms. Hughes' show, and time, and a year's distance from the event, has not caused me to back away from those hypotheses one iota. Indeed, it is the continuing silence of Russia, China, India, and the USA on the event that continues to tell me that something very big may have happened to MH 370, something big, and perhaps exotic, and that these nations would simply rather not talk about it, though they may, and probably do, have a suspicion on what it might be. For my own part, those wild and crazy hypotheses are (1) either a "hidden player", human, or otherwise, with some exotic technology made the plane go "poof" in the sense of disintegration(again, demanding a motive), or (2) made it go "poof" in the sense of an "instantaneous" teleportation to "elsewhere",and both with the ostensible purpose of sending a "message" (but again, if so, from whom to whom, and what's the message?) or, the most wackadoodle of them all, (3) the plane simply went poof for deeper cosmological and physical reasons, such as a fundamental breakdown in the physical constraints of this corner of the universe. And even that most "high octane speculation" of them all, might point to an exotic technology, perhaps one whose full implications are not fully understood. Which brings us to the matter at hand... perhaps the silliest, most bizarre, most wackadoodle high octane speculation of them all, to such nonsense I dare not mention it, but also to such potential mischief I dare not not mention it: we've seen the dire warnings of Mr. Hawking, and lately, concerning CERN's large hadron collider and the dangers that they - I sense - intuit in turning the machine back on. One gets the sense that this gentleman is not saying everything that he's thinking nor why he's thinking it. We've seen the physicists in Italy proposing, in the wake of LHC experiments, the notion of getting rid of the idea of dimensionality in their equations altogether, a notion that still leaves me somewhat breathless. It wouldn't be the first time in history that we've heard stories of powerful rotating magnetic fields and things that simply disappeared, or, in some versions of the story, disappeared and reappeared hundreds of miles distant in a matter of seconds, only to disappear again, and reappear...

One does wonder...

See you on the flip side...

  1. The US/UK controlled Diego Garcia is not far away from the incident, it would be very odd if nobody at Diego Garcia monitored the plane as a possible threat when it went into stealth mode. With almost 100% certainty the US military forces knows what happened to the plane, thinking otherwise would be simply foolish, but for some reason they won’t reveil the data. That means they hide something to the public, this reason – unknown to the public – is more important than the reason to reveil its destiny. This in turn makes it very valid to speculate that the US military forces play a role in the disappearance of MH 370, because why would they keep that data to themselves if they had an intention to help the public and if they wanted to keep the data to eliminate traces of what they know about the airspace, then they could have leaked the info through certain untracable channels. Because this has not happened, it makes more sense than not to speculate of a sinister motive behind the attack on MH 370. And I think that what is going on is the collection of airspace attack weapons and probing of air control done as preparation work most likely to be carried out as a synchronized 911 on steroids kind of terrorist attack later on. I think that the same force that controlled the planes of 911, took control of MH 370. It’s a great threat…!

  2. Joseph, you mention at roughly 2/3 of this conversation about you speaking to friends in the East (Indonesia and Malaysia). They suppose to have said something about muslim scholars talking about the rapture and in relation(?) with the plane’s disappearance.

    1+1= sometimes 2
    Does it makes any sense to look at this same meme spread in the media in relation to ISIS/ISIL ?

    It somehow brought me back to this infamous Reagan speech on “uniting the world” and von Braun’s alleged conversation on “war on terror” –> “war on aliens” with some lady (blond curly hair she got).

    Dunno…

  3. Wasn’t there a 2003 or 2004 episode of StarGate SG1 where an entire downtown Seattle (well Vancouver, BC) office building was simply teleported away to somewhere?

  4. Yes, I stand corrected – “Chaos” was the imaginary global nemesis of “Get Smart.”
    Of course, the ability to electronically hijack commercial aircraft has been around for some years and was probably used to guide the jets that rammed the World Trade centers:

    “Electronic hijacking

    Electronic hijacking uses systems and programming already factory installed within the B777 flight management system. This is different from hacking or cyber-attack in that it requires access to the B777’s security system through access purposefully programmed into the software. Notable proponents of this theory include former Malaysian prime minister Mahathir Mohamad.[20] He said: “Clearly Boeing and certain agencies have the capacity to take over uninterruptible control of commercial airliners of which MH370 B777 is one”. In this statement he was referring to off-board hijackers with access to MH370’s Flight Management System via the 2003 patented Uninterruptible Autopilot.”

  5. What do we know about this Jeff Wise person?
    This sounds so much like Dr. Judy Woods theory…
    Like trying to throw good researchers off the right track.
    I wonder if they have anything in common.

    Being crazy not always a good theory make.

    1. What do you think is wrong with J Wood’s theory?

      I know of one problem with the book.

      And then there’s a problem of presentation–the book and the website are very scattered and both repeat a huge amount.

  6. Perhaps “we” can rephrase FDR’s quote to/in exopolitics there are no accidents. There is a message being sent here; the question is not only whose sending it, but whose receiving it. That it is “stage” rather like a “false flag” hints towards a wider audience; meaning that is indeed, “part of the message”.
    Now the timing “might” might also be part of the message.

    Assume message received.

    The reply?

  7. While we are at the high octane speculation level, maybe this event was an “experiment”. We all know the elites have some exotic stuff laying around, and what better way to find out if it works or not. I’m not concerned what direction the plane turned to what course it took, because if it was taken out, “they’ knew where it was at any given moment. The elephant in the room is the conflicting satellite tracking which by most commentators was “irrational” at best. Fudging the data was most likely done, so it is like “covering up the tracks” if you will, but I’ll guarantee they will never find it, and will just join the other plane mysteries that have disappeared since flight began.

  8. Aren’t there remnant technologies of the ancients here? Of which some have been found.. those guys at CERN might learn a thing or two from those who have figured out how to make black holes in their labs. And just what exactly are they trying to accomplish? To penetrate the atomic nuclei? Exceed the current energetic and speed limits? Then what. I guess now is a good time, given the cosmological conditions are right..And eliminating dimensionality just because they have no idea how it works is again, akin to saying that other dimensions can’t exist because they do not materialize in this dimension (or is it because it’s our senses that are limited). misleading again to their conclusion that this must only be the dimension that exists. Talk about inside the 3D box kind of thinking.

      1. there were anomalies and things were found sort of thing.
        Weapons, as usual
        to gain the upper hand. Though I think the ultimate motive is so much more than that.

  9. emlong your confusing The Man From Uncle with Get Smart Chaos was the nemesis of Control. If your familiar with 1950’s science fiction films remember the scene in This Island Earth where the hero jet that he testing controls are taken over. Given that was over sixty years ago what would be the technology to do such to a commercial plane today. Are we returning or never left piracy and slavery but on a high tech level. Our oligarchs consider themselves above any laws and beyond any constraints of morality what would you not put beyond them.

  10. Doc,
    Super interesting posts, as usual.
    One thing that continues to bother me is the relative silence on what happened to the EgyptAir 990 Flight. The “crazy co-pilot” theory was quickly adopted by the US, always eager to (very unfairly) picture all Muslims as irrational fanatics. There’s actually little supporting evidence for this “explanation,” which Egypt rejects of course.
    Is it nutty to think whatever reached out and plucked these other planes from the skies was also employed against 990?

  11. In the old television series “The Man From Uncle” the bad guys were called “Chaos.” That is what the globalists should be called. A lot of the engineered media terror ops don’t really need to be anything other than that – “chaos” – intended to keep the average mass media muncher on tenterhooks and perfectly willing to cede more and more civil rights to the black hole.

  12. The one huge element in the MH370 vanishing act, flashing red by its absence and sounding piercing claxons, is the complete silence of the US gubmint and military, who could supply detailed forensics on this plane’s movements.

    We are so accustomed to hearing the Bie Lie from the Mighty Wurlitzer on all and sundry “events” of our stage-managed reality that I find this silence truly deafening.

    Far easier to envision than a wormhole or bieng tractored in by a hostile mothership.
