March 8, 2014: Malaysia Air Flight 370 carrying 239 passengers from Kuala Lumpur and Beijing disappeared off the radar. We all remember it. Within the next two weeks, in the absence of a crash site, the conspiracy theories abounded, and so did the hypotheses advanced to explain the disappearance. Among the weirder hypotheses being advanced was my own "it just went 'poof'" hypothesis, which I argued on George Ann Hugh's The Byte Show. My reasons for doing so then were based, in part, on what had emerged by way of explanations from other people pondering the same mystery:

(1) there were eye-witnesses on the peninsula, and in the straits, who heard and in some cases saw, a large jet flying low and to the south east, headed toward the Indian Ocean, and definitely not China;

(2) But then, no wreckage was found in any area corresponding to such a flight path, though the Indian government and the Malaysian government did conduct some early searches in those waters;

(3) When wreckage failed to materialize at any likely crash spot, the Chinese government then made available a satellite photo of what appeared to be wreckage in the South China sea, while Chinese and Vietnamese authorities conducted searches in those waters. The Chinese quickly retracted their satellite photo, for reasons that still remain unclear (at least, to this author);

(4) Then the first conspiracy theories began to appear:

(a) The idea was quickly floated that the pilot of the flight was suffering mental deterioration, and at one point, it was suggested that this was an act of suicidal jihadist terrorism. This idea gained no traction, for in the final analysis there was little evidence of either;

(b) Next came the "hijacking" and the "bait and switch" scenarios: an American general actually appeared on Fox news seriously suggesting the flight had flown closely in the wake of another commercial airliner (to confuse Indian radar and look like one object when it was really two) over and through India, where it landed in Iran and became part of some sort of plot (which was never made entirely clear) by Mr. Putin. This story quickly fell apart when the Indian government released an Official Guffaw and Belly Laugh, saying there was no way anything could enter their airspace and they not know about it; this was followed by the "bait-and-switch" scenario of various versions, where the flight landed at the super-secret US base Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean, where the plane was carefully repainted for use in yet another crazy scenario, which eventually emerged when MH 17, flying from the Netherlands through the Ukraine, crashed, and was, of course, blamed on Russia. This story fell apart when Russia presented convincing evidence that they had nothing to do with it.

(c) Then there was the Rothschild computer-chip theory, which argued that several passengers from an American computer chip company in Texas owned by various Rothschild interests were flying to China, and they were taken out by... well, whoever wanted to take them out to prevent secrets from being sold, stolen, transferred, or whatever.

(5) There were, of course, other hypotheses of accidental (or deliberate but covert) missile strikes by everyone from the US Navy (which I doubt, since they can't seem to steer ships to avoid collisions) to North Korea (insert loud laughter here), to the Chinese, who had no motivation for shooting down an aircraft with their own people aboard, and presumably were going to get beaucoups computer chip secrets from the Rothschilds;

(6) And finally, there were the "remote takeover" and "cyber-war" hypotheses, which, in the wake of the USS Donald Cook, Fitzgerald, and John McCain incidents, looks increasingly like a very viable hypothesis.

Throughout this whole early initial period - and I grant you, my "review" is far too short and missing many details - one nagging problem remained: No debris... anywhere. My problem here was that if there was an explosion, a missile strike (accidental or otherwise), or any similar sort of scenario, then there would be debris, and somebody's satellites would surely pick up on it. This led me (and, as it turned out, others) to consider two scenarios: either somebody was covering up the existence of a debris field because it might reveal secrets, either about the means of MH 370's tragic end, or about the satellite technology itself, or possibly both; or the satellites had detected nothing, and the aircraft had truly just simply vanished, and the latter idea implied someone with some very sophisticated and exotic technology, and was showing off, or sending messages, or commandeering the craft. Then early in 2015 well-known American radio talk show host George Noory, and well-known television actor Richard Belzer, published a book with David Wayne considering the various hypotheses titled Someone is Hiding Something: What Happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370?, which reviewed the various hypotheses and evidences, including the "exotic technology-it-went-'poof'" hypothesis( q.v. p. 193)

It was the lack of debris that was so sobering, and suggestive, and I recall suggesting to George Ann Hughs when we were discussing MH 370, that a debris field should emerge soon, but that if it appeared in the Indian Ocean,  a very deep ocean, then any recovery of items on the bottom would be problematic, since it would require advanced deep diving technologies to do so. The problem as I saw it then, was that such a debris field could be salted with debris not genuinely from the flight itself.

Sure enough (and just in the nick of time, too! Whew!) debris began to wash up in Africa and Madagascar two years later, and people held up parts and pieces, pictures were taken, studies were done (which, you'll note, conveniently avoided giving any real explanation as to what had happened to the flight), and  the result was "mystery over; it didn't explode-wasn't sabotaged/hit-by-a-missile/victim-of-a-bomb-didn't-just-g0-'poof'" and obviously "didn't land in Diego Garcia/Iran/the Netherlands" which means it was not "shot down by the Russians over the Ukraine."  I'll bet Mr. Putin breathed a sigh of relief when he received the news he was no longer wanted for hijacking.  This triggered searches that were already under way off the coast of western Australia (!) to redouble their efforts, but again, no debris field was found.

This in turn has sparked a new journalism "meme": the "scientists think the debris field is really here" meme, with this or that site being proposed. To top all this off, when the "debris" began washing up in Madagascar and the pictures were being taken, an Australian pilot and a member of my website contacted me with analyses of the pictures. Now, of course, this is purely anecdotal information on my part, so take it for whatever it is worth, but his bottom line was that what was being shown as debris had a few differences from the parts of the Boeing aircraft of Malaysia flight 370. Well, I don't know, as I'm not a pilot. My problem was and remains that a debris field can be salted. And even then, assuming that the debris we're being shown is from MH 370, why is it so damnably far from any flight path that a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing would presumably take? It is this that constitutes the problem for me with the "cyber-jack" hypothesis, for presumably if one wants to cyber-jack an aircraft, one presumably wants to do so because one wants to fly it somewhere in order to gain something from the effort. But no, we're still being told the line that it crashed somewhere in the eastern Indian Ocean west of Australia. This of course, could all be just a "cover story" for the "cyber-jack" to Diego Garcia story.

One might argue that the cyber-jacki/Diego Garcia story gains some credibility here. But my problem remains now what it was back when George Ann Hughs and I first talked privately about the whole thing: Presuming the USA or UK wanted to rec0ver something on that flight, or to intercept a delivery of something to China, presumably they could have done so much earlier in the chain of delivery than they did, and could have done so in a much quieter and less obvious way than to make an entire civilian airliner disappear with no good explanation.

So the bottom line, before we proceed to part two of this story, is that (1) the story or official narrative of Flight 370 is badly mangled, and began to be so almost as soon as the flight was reported missing; this, to my mind, strongly suggests that someone knows something, and is covering it up; and (2) the debris showed up suspiciously late in the game, and wildly out of any area or reported flight path as reported by early eye witnesses, suggesting that, for whatever reason, the flight was wildly displaced from that path; (3) the fact that US Generals would appear on Fox news offering (ridiculous) explanations means that, at some level, the US knew or suspected what had happened, and was attempting either to divert attention to the hi-jacking bait-and-switch theories, or to draw attention to the inadequacy of those theories by appearing to endorse them in a ridiculous way.

And now, add to all this bizarre mix, this story, which many people sent to me. I include all three versions, though they appear to be based initially on the UK Daily Mail version:

Diplomat probing MH370 mystery is shot dead in Madagascar amid conspiracy theorist claims he was about to deliver newly-found parts of the jet to Malaysian investigators

MH370: Murder of man investigating missing plane sparks conspiracy theories

MH370: Murder of man investigating missing plane sparks conspiracy theories

Ponder those as you sleep tonight, and we'll get back to them tomorrow, with our own wildly geosynchronously "out there" high octane speculation...

See you on the flip side...




  1. Everyone knows that MH370 was crashed into the Larsen Ice Shelf to break off a large chunk of it and further the Global Warming charade. Problem solved, and we have a massive iceberg floating around now that no one is talking about, too.

  2. My speculation is that some sort of a leak became known the very last moment. Containment failed, so 2nd best option was to hijack the plane mid air before it reached Beijing. They wanted to catch the suspects alive and interrogate them in Diego Garcia. That option would give the operational advantages of surprise and time to act against any remaining collaborators who would foolishly thought that their secret was now lying somewhere dead and safe on the buttom of the Indian Ocean…

  3. I recall my mother fixing my gaze & stating in hushed but certain tones, in response to a comment which mentioned MH370, that “We think we know how this world is run, but we don’t have a clue really, no-one does”

    And for some reason, the way she said it, the fact that she insinuated the whole wide & deep world was being ‘run’ rather than just unfolding as we think it does – it was too unusual, as if she was nervous someone was watching. And she seemed deadly serious, and she never seems off in such a manner. She’s also a competent business professional with old ties to the military, so who knows? Perhaps she knows something the rest of us don’t.

    Very spooky. Just remembered it on reading this post. Will get on to part two soon, perhaps a conclusion awaits!

  4. After reading the three articles, I don’t believe the parts-retrieval had anything to do with Zahid Raza’s murder. It is possible that Raza had put 2+2 together and was about to blow the whistle in some way. It is also possible that Raza was simply a ‘Back Off’ assassination-victim to warn-off other potential whistle-blowers.

    As an ex-USAF officer, ex-aerospace engineer, and ex-Boeing engineer, I still lean to the Diego Garcia hypothesis. First, the 777 ‘vanished’ from transponder-based radar while flying NE. However, it was tracked through a tight U-turn by Malaysian military radar (skin reflection-based, not transponder-based) and watched until it went beyond radar range still-flying SW. Hours later, natives of the Maldives Islands spotted a 777 in Malaysian Airlines colors flying low near their islands. This eyewitness testimony was quickly suppressed, but never refuted. From the Maldives, it is a relatively-short flight to Diego Garcia. It was a lot of work to get that 777 from Malaysia to close-to Diego Garcia. I submit it then actually went to Diego Garcia, for whatever reason. Logical. (Add to that, US radar tracks and Australian over-the-horizon radar tracks of the area at-that-time were never made public…)

    (Note that it was during this time that Malaysia was holding war-crimes trials for Bush, Cheney, et al. Also note that it was during this time that Malaysia was holding-back from joining the Trans-Pacific Partnership [TPP]. Circumstantial, but relevant.)

    An extension, more tenuous, to the Diego Garcia scenario is that the same plane – complete with passengers – was used in the Ukrainian shootdown. This is indicated by first-responders to the crash site noting that the passengers reeked of a formaldehyde-like smell and did not have rigor-mortis symptoms. Again, this eyewitness-reportage has been suppressed but never refuted. Coupled with the earlier ‘disappearance’ of MH370, I believe this fact-based observation should have raised more eyebrows. (Note that this observation took place long before all the political ‘theater’ took hold. It was simple, on-the-ground evidence.)

    My thought is that loss of the two Malaysian Airline 777s were primarily PAYBACK to the Malaysian government (see above). Any use for smearing Putin was just an added ‘bonus’, worked-into the caper. Two birds with one stone, as it were…

    1. I wanted to add one more ‘destination’ for MH370, since natives of the Maldive Islands spotted a 777 in Malaysian Airlines colors flying low near the islands:
      “Royal Air Force Station Gan, commonly known as RAF Gan, is a former Royal Air Force station on Gan Island, the southern-most island of Addu Atoll which is part of the larger groups of islands which form the Maldives… Following the handover back to the Maldives Government, the island was left to fall into disrepair for many years, but as funds allowed the airfield was subtly developed into a civil airport, and is now known as Gan International Airport.”

      This airport is interesting, because it was RAF and probably with the accompanying MI6 connections. Perhaps enough Intel remained to have the 777 land there for refueling and departure for parts unknown. This would have required a Roswell-like series of bribes, threats, and such to keep the secret contained. Who knows, but I find it interesting that this landing-place is never mentioned, despite a 777 flying low in the vicinity. The runway has the capability of “supporting code D aircraft such as Boeing 767-200.” A 777 flying-light with fuel tanks mostly empty would approximate the weight of a loaded 767…

  5. Perhaps brings this information any clarity?

    A friend of mine used a Lecher Antenna and found out that the airoplane has landed on Diego Garcia:

    1. Intel also has a processor manufacturing facility there, not that this ties in with the MH-370 story; more tied in with the cheap labor and off shoring of our manufacturing base. It does make it easier to “design in” back doors though, should “someone” desire to do so.
