One of the most influential figures in Malaysia's ruling party claims information about flight MH370 is being hidden and the Australian-led search for the plane off Western Australia is a waste of time and money.

Former prime minister Mahathir Mohamad said the plane's disappearance on March 8 was "most likely not an ordinary crash after fuel was exhausted".

"The plane is somewhere, maybe without MAS [Malaysia Airlines] markings," he said. "It is a waste of time and money to look for debris or oil slick or to listen for pings from the black box."

Dr Mahathir, 88, who was prime minister for 22 years from 1981, wrote in his personal blog he could not imagine that "the pilots made a soft landing in rough seas and then quietly went down with the aircraft".

"Someone is hiding something. It is not fair that MAS and Malaysia should take the blame," he wrote.

Dr Mahathir suggested the United States' Central Intelligence Agency had knowledge of the disappearance of the plane with 239 people on board but was not sharing it with Malaysia.

He also claimed that Boeing, the plane's maker, and "certain" government agencies, have the ability to remotely take over control of commercial airliners such as the missing Boeing 777.

"For some reason, the media will not print anything that involves Boeing or the CIA," he said.

In another blog last month, Dr Mahathir, who remains a power broker in the ruling United Malays National Organisation, questioned whether the plane crashed into the southern Indian Ocean and blamed Boeing for its disappearance.

During his time in power, Dr Mahathir was often critical of Western countries such as the US, even once suggesting the attacks on the World Trade Centre in New York were staged as an excuse to mount attacks on the Muslim world.

His comments on MH370 reflect deep suspicion in Malaysia of foreign involvement in the plane's disappearance despite Prime Minister Najib Razak saying last week that nobody knew what happened on board, or precisely where the plane was, more than two months after it disappeared.

Mr Najib said experts had identified that MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean, where the search was focused, discounting dozens of other theories and reported sightings.

But Dr Mahathir wrote in his latest blog that planes "don't just disappear ... certainly not these days, with all the powerful communications systems, radio and satellite tracking and filmless cameras which operate almost indefinitely, and possess huge storage capacities".

"Can it not be that the pilots of MH370 lost control of their aircraft after someone directly or remotely activated the equipment for seizure of control of the aircraft?" he wrote. [...]

US rules out MH370 landed at its Indian Ocean base in Diego Garcia


Washington, March 19, 2014

Last Updated: 14:19 IST(19/3/2014)

The United States has ruled out the possibility of the missing Malaysian plane landing at its Indian Ocean base in Diego Garcia.

"I'll rule that one out," White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters yesterday when asked about such news reports appearing mainly in the Chinese press.

Carney said the Malaysian government has the lead in this investigation and the US officials are in Kuala Lumpur working closely with the Malaysian government on the investigation.

"This is a difficult and unusual situation, and we are working hard, in close collaboration with the Malaysian government and other partners, to investigate a number of possible scenarios for what happened to the flight. Our hearts of course go out to the families of the passengers. They are in a truly agonizing situation," he said. ...

Comment {Peter M.} The timidity of Reporters today is astonishing. A plane disappears, and a fruitless search costs $100 million, yet Reporters accept Government statements at face value - without probing or tough questioning.

Why was the Malaysian MH370 Flight Not Detected by the Diego Garcia US Naval and Intelligence Base in the Indian Ocean?

By Adrian Salbuchi

Global Research, March 26, 2014


Diego Garcia is a tropical, footprint-shaped coral atoll located south of the equator in the central Indian Ocean.

It is part of the British Indian Ocean Territory, but now under US Control under lease from UK.

The American military base on the island of Diego Garcia is one of the most strategically important and secretive U.S. military installations outside the United States.

Located near the remote center of the Indian Ocean and accessible only by military transport, the base was a little-known launch pad for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and may house a top-secret CIA prison where terror suspects are interrogated and tortured.

Is it possible for MH 370 not tracked by USA's most sophisticated technologies on earth in Diego Garcia if in fact MH 370 was flying to the Indian ocean?

Is MH370 The Latest Casualty Of The Pentagon's Pivot To Asia?

By Yoichi Shimatsu {formerly Editor of the Japan Times}

March 20, 2014

The closer that millions of online sleuths come to tracing the trajectory and destination of the missing Malaysian Airlines jetliner, the likelier it becomes that the National Security Agency and CIA will resort to disinformation, including the planting of falsified evidence, to throw off their pursuers in what increasingly appears to be an electronic hijacking by those spy agencies.

More layers of the ongoing cover-up are being hatched now that eyewitnesses at the Huvadhu Atoll, a diving area in the southern Maldives, have reported sightings of "a low-flying jumbo jet.: South of Huvadhu Atoll, the closest U.S. military facility is Diego Garcia in the Chagos Islands. The joint U.S. Navy submarine and Air Force facility has underground hangers huge enough to conceal B-52 bombers, a convenient hiding place for a Boeing-777.

Huvadhu is a prominent marker in the vast Indian Ocean, used as the turning point for flights into Diego Garcia. There valuable cargo - either classified documents or a human intelligence asset - can be secretly landed and reloaded on a USAF cargo jet or a Navy submarine. Countless secret and illegal "extraordinary rendition" flights were sent to Diego Garcia in the war on terror, and there is no practical reason why the same US intelligence agencies would not use it to land a civilian aircraft hijacked by remote control.

Pieces of the wreckage spotted by US ally Australia further south of Diego Garcia could be a decoy site, salted with physical evidence of airplane parts that have been moved surreptitiously. As in the unsolved mystery of Amelia Earhart, who was on an espionage mission against the Japanese forces in the South Pacific before her disappearance, there is the possibility that a hostile military force moved tantalizing evidence from the actual landing site to a more distant remote island by plane or ship.

Malaysia Targeted by Air-Sea Battle Plan

The case of a MH370 has been solely focused on the possibility of a route diversion by the on-board crew. Completely ignored in press releases and news reports so far is the elephant in the room, or perhaps a better analogy of a Great White Shark in the bathtub - the massive U.S. Navy and Air Force presence in the seas and airspace surrounding Malaysia.

There is absolutely no way that a flying object as large as a Boeing-777 could evade the 24-hour watch over the South China Sea and the Andaman Sea by NSA-USAF spy satellites, high-tech AEGIS destroyers, the new class of Littoral Combat Ships and P3 surveillance planes.

The reasons for targeting Malaysia becomes clearer by examining the bigger picture of an aggressive military build-up in the Southeast Asia region by the combined armed forces of the US, Japan and Australia under Washington's "strategic pivot to Asia" policy. This geopolitical strategy is carried out by the Pentagon and its military allies through the Air-Sea Battle Concept, which disperses Navy and Air Force fighter jets across a network of civilian airfields and secret landing strips.

Beijing is not the only target of the Air-Sea Battle Concept. Malaysia runs a close second to China on Washington's enemies list. Flight MH370, destined for Beijing, is the literal embodiment of the economic alliance and political relationship between : China and Malaysia, making the airliner a most convenient target.

Pressuring Kuala Lumpur

Located on the geostrategic Malacca Strait, Malaysia is a predominantly Muslim oil-producing nation with a "Look East" policy allying itself with Japan and China. Last year the Malaysian and Chinese governments established an economic alliance, which includes Asian access to world oil reserves. In the eyes of Washington and its allies, these are sufficient grounds to treat Kuala Lumpur as an adversary.

Even though the Malaysian police force has cooperated closely with the US Embassy in the war on terror, which led to arrests of top-ranking Al Qaeda-linked terrorists, that is not good enough. The late Moammar Gaddhafi of Libya and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad also aided Washington in post-911 anti-terrorism, and look where it got them. It is not enough to be a friend of America. For a leader to survive, he must be a groveling yes-man, a political slave - and never mind America's long-forgotten principles of sovereignty or self-determination.

Warnings from Washington were repeatedly given to Malaysia over the past few years. In late August 2013, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel flew to Kuala Lumpur last year to pressure the Defence Ministry to cooperate with the strategic pivot through joint naval-and-air exercises directed against Chinese forces in the Malaysian-claimed islets in the Spratley group. These spits of rock and sand located off of Sabah, the Malaysian state in northwest Borneo, have names longer than their diameters, for instance, Investigator Reef and Mariveles Reef.

At the same time, a mystery force led by a claimant to the title of Sultan of Saah send a group of Filipino gunmen, allegedly trained by a retired American commando, attacked Sabah with a series of shootouts with the Malaysian Army. US counterinsurgency troops happened to be operating in the southern Islamic-dominated areas of the Philippines, where the "sultan" recruited his desperado guerrillas.

Meanwhile, as disclosed by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, Washington with the cooperation of Singapore was massively eavesdropping on Malaysian communications, banking and Internet traffic. Kuala Lumpur filed a diplomatic protest with Singapore, which downplayed its role as an agent for American, British and Israeli interests in Southeast Asia.

Not by any coincidence, this writer earlier exposed the role of Google in trying to block visitors to pro-Palestinian websites in Malaysia and Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia has taken an active role in sending aid boats to Gaza and speaking on behalf of Palestinian rights at the UN. Google has close relations with the electronic warfare operations of the Pentagon and the Israel Defense Force, and sponsors a research center in Technion, a technical university in Haifa closely integrated with the IDF.

MH370 is not the first possible casualty of the strategic pivot policy. In May 2011, a Sukhoi Superjet 100 airliner was "accidentally" downed in nearby Indonesia. That mysterious crash into a mountain on a clear day happened after takeoff from Halim Air Base, the planning center for the Air-Sea Battle Concept across the vast Indonesian archipelago. Sukhoi Aircraft Industries had strong connections with Malaysia, where Russian plane manufacturer was planning to build a regional maintenance center - a business plan since canceled under pressure from the Pentagon, Boeing and Lockheed.

Malaysia has the only air force in the region that flies Sukhoi jet fighters, which unlike US-supplied warplanes, cannot be electronically controlled and disarmed by a computer-code signal from the Pentagon.

How to Knock Out Aviation Electronics

The flight paths of MH370 were not across uncharted waters, as news reports suggest, but over some of the world's most heavily watched maritime channels. As soon as the jet lifted off Kuala Lumpur, its communications signals and radar image were picked up by US Navy signals intercepts officers stationed at Changi Navy Base and Sembawang dockyard in Singapore, which are effectively bases for the 7th Fleet. Triple coverage would have been provided by USAF listening posts at Halim Air Base near Jakarta.

The Malaysian airliner would then been picked up by the many USN ships patrolling the South China Sea, in and around the Spratley Islands. Besides AEGIS radar ships, the Navy has dispatched a new class of Littoral Combat Ships, including the USS Freedom, to the pivot.

Beamed from one of these ships, a powerful type of radar called X-band or narrow-aperture radar could easily have disabled all of the planes. The advanced radar system, now used in electromagnetic warfare to knock out missile and planes, led to the unintended blackout of Los Angeles Airport (LAX) in April 2004.

As told to me by a former Navy communications officer, "the new type of radar was commissioned by Admiral Jeremy Boorda, who was an enthusiast for anything hi-tech. When our destroyer came to the port of Los Angeles, someone switched on the radar and the electrical power went down at LAX and all of the surrounding area. LAX was closed for hours, but the incident was hushed up by the Pentagon." Boorda was the victim of an apparent suicide in 1996 after infuriating the officer corps by exposing widespread problem of rape in the naval ranks.

As reported in the news, MH370 was steered toward the Indian Ocean by the insertion of a computer command into its navigation system. Since at least the 911 incident and possibly earlier, Boeing passenger jets can be remote-controlled by the US intelligence agencies. Any recently built American-built aircraft can now be electronically commandeered and operated like a drone.

The only question is whether the American government is willing to engage in such a reckless disregard innocent lives. That point has already been proven in countless drone strikes against civilian compounds in places like Afghanistan, Yemen, Iraq, the Horn of Africa and many unreported locales. Though illegal and immoral, death from the skies is official policy. Without any effective restraints, the Pentagon can easily eliminate the passengers of Malaysian Airlines.

Perhaps it is not too late to save any surviving hostages, but that task would require a commando team capable of rescuing them from inside a heavily guarded U.S. Military base in the center of the Indian Ocean and flying them to India, the only coastal country in the region secure enough from a Pentagon counterstrike. Rambo, are you ready?

Flying Under the Radar

After its electronic systems were knocked out, MH370 made a sharp left turn toward the Kra Peninsula along the thinly populated and insurgency-troubled Malaysia-Thai border. The jet dove to 6,000 feet and possibly lower, enabling it to evade detection by flying below the ground radar. Its path, however, was briefly picked up from the northern side, where the Thai Air Force bases a fleet of Saab jet fighters.

Significantly, the plane did not crash into the steep mountain range along the Kelantan-Kedah state border, but managed to fly in between the taller peaks. Either the passengers and crew were blessed with incredible luck or the MH370 was flying under remote control. Remote piloting software for a plane, now a readily available for drones, was first developed by Israeli programmers, all of them former IDF officers, in Atel, Israel, prior to 911. The same team created the hacker-immune Waterfall software for critical infrastructure, which was released coincidentally at the same time as the Stuxnet virus.

Then MH370 crossed over the Strait of Malacca and the Andaman Sea, which is crowded with commercial vessels and oil tankers. That particular section of the strategic passage is constantly monitored by NSA-CIA surveillance stations assigned to protect Indonesia's Sumatra offshore oil platforms operated by Exxon and BP. Just north of Phuket is the Thai Navy's 3rd Headquarters, where American servicemen keep track of all ship and airplane traffic over the Andaman Sea.

It is impossible, in short, with so many radar facilities and airbases in that oil-rich sea for any jetliner, especially along an unscheduled air route, to go unspotted. So somebody is lying, and perhaps everybody is lying.

The Impunity of Criminal States

The cargo manifest for MH370 has yet to be released, just like the SwissAir 111 shipment of pallets of bonds was never disclosed. Perhaps the motive was an economic crime, although that possibility is far-fetched since Malaysia is not a major holder of US Treasury bonds

The other possible motive is the human assets aboard the jet. The passenger manifest does not disclose the occupation or rank associated with the names. Was there a VIP on board of extreme high value to Western intelligence agencies?

The lesson of MH370 is that the Great Powers act in secrecy and with impunity. Wars of strategic interest are no longer waged openly but are conducted by proxy armies, mercenaries with guns, propaganda agents placed inside of human-rights groups, media blackmail, social media manipulation and spies in the sky.

Electronic warfare against planes or against smartphones is by now routine and accepted by dumbed-down users, with no apologies or regrets expressed by the NSA or the Pentagon. Smaller players who cross those invisible red lines or dare to put a stick in the eye of the big boys, end up broken into tiny pieces. In this cruel new world of subterfuge and sabotage, one learns to play the game or is quickly ejected into oblivion like a lost airliner.

Against the prospect of total domination of global society by spy agencies, resistance by any means and for whatever the cost is not just a game; it is political duty and moral obligation to restore long-ignored constitutional principles and the rule of law. The all-powerful hunters will become the frightened hunted, as is starting to happen now as millions of online users narrow down the destination of MH370.

(5) MH370 twin jet in Tel Aviv; Israeli military & intelligence presence on Diego Garcia - Yoichi Shimatsu


Role Of Israel & Soros Exposed by MH370 Twin Jet In Tel Aviv

By Yoichi Shimatsu

March 27, 2014

BANGKOK - It is by no mere coincidence, when telltale evidence of a Mossad role in the MH370 hijack was starting to snowball, that Israel's embassies and consulates were suddenly shut down due to a "strike by diplomatic staff". This fork-tongued alibi was obviously meant to prevent law enforcement agencies across Asia and the Western world from questioning Israeli intelligence agents and military attaches about the whereabouts and fate of the hundreds of passengers.

The Jewish state's diplomatic corps has retreated further into a tortoise shell, perhaps because of the hammer blow from investigative journalist Christopher Bollyn, who previously exposed Israel's hand behind the 911 attacks. Based on eyewitness reports from a network of plane watchers in Europe and in Israel, Bollyn reports that an identical production model of the Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 is being kept out of regular service inside a hangar at Tel Aviv Airport.

Seattle-based Boeing assembles aircraft in pairs as its standard practice, but the question is how one jet was leased by Malaysia's national carrier while the matching plane was secretly turned over to the Israeli government without a purchase order from state-run El Al airlines.

Bollyn uncovered the fact that the two jets were delivered to a third-party company, whose top manager has a longtime connection with the George Soros. From the timeline of events, it is obvious that the plane transfers and subsequent electronic hijacking were part of a larger strategy, which was aimed at:

first, a planned alse-flag attack involving mass murder of American citizens to be blamed on the two Iranians aboard MH370, in order to prompt the White House to order air strikes against Iran's nuclear facilities and air defenses; and

second, the blatant theft of key technology related to Freehold Semiconductor's Kinesis microchip, the world's tiniest microcontroller, for use in miniature weapons systems that will ensure Israeli military supremacy for decades to come.

Bait and Swtich [...]

Who is Abdol Moabery?

The twin Boeing jets were sold to GA Telesis, an aircraft leasing and servicing company, based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The owner of GAT is Abdol Moabery, the son of Iranian immigrants in the posh Woodlawn Hills suburb of Los Angeles.

Before and after September 2001, Moabery was executive manager of Skywatch, a company that supplied monitoring devices for the rooftops of office towers. The electronic device can spot as many as 300 flying objects in one sweep and single out the one flying toward the targeted property. Handy indeed to welcome your boss on the helipad in Manhattan and also to direct his pilot toward the right building.

One of the partners in Skywatch was New York City Mayor Rudolf Guiliani, who claimed his interest was solely in its potential application to monitor US borders against illegal immigrants. One immigrant who slipped past the Skywatch net was Mohamad Atta. Despite or perhaps because of Skywatch, the two jetliners flew into the Towers like Robin Hood's arrows.

Six months after 911, Moabery left Skywatch to start up GA Telesis in Florida, a state then governed by fellow Republican Jeb Bush and where 911 suspects had extensive flight training.

Prior his term at Skywatch, Moabery served in the US Navy and then worked in executive positions for two Soros-owned aviation companies, Aviation Systems International and C-S Aviation. C-S stands for Chatterjee-Soros. Purnenda Chatterjee is a former Stanford Research Institute and McKinsey partner, whose Chatterjee Group funneled investment funds into West Bengal on behalf of his mentor Soros. In 2011, investors in North Carolina filed charges against Soros and his protege for fraud and embezzlement, an won the initial case by arguing that Soros concealed his ownership of the bankrupt company. Soros is not the Midas he pretends to be, often escaping out the back door leaving behind angry investors. [...]

On the surface and from satellite images, Diego Garcia seems a barren atoll. That's because most of the US Navy and Air Force bases are underground inside vast bunkers installed a decade ago. The island, part of the British-owned Chagos archipelago south of India, later made headlines as the storage site for hundreds of bunker-buster JDAM bombs for a joint Israel-US airstrike against Iran's nuclear facilities and air defenses.

The Israeli military and intelligence presence on Diego Garcia is so massive that long-distance phone operators offer a special discount card for calls to Israel. The Israeli Navy's nuclear-missile capable Dolphin submarines refuel and are serviced at Diego Garcia, saving the time and expense of going to Elat on the Red Sea.

An IDF Dolphin sub from Diego Garcia sank the South Korean frigate Choenan. The Dolphin crew, panicked by the unscheduled voyage, fired a smart torpedo at the frigate. On the following two days, South Korean naval divers rescued several Caucasians, including two drowning victims, from a sunken submarine. That Dolphin submarine, based at an underwater base south of Inchon, was later replaced with an IDF order for a new sub from HDW Germany. Cannon fire from the Choenan's sister ship had hit the Dolphin after it sank the Choenan, following delivered nuclear-weapons material to the North Korean military.

Israel is neck-deep in intrigue across Asia, including nuclear deals with North Korea and Japan. As mentioned earlier in this series on MH370, Israeli-linked agents including Google and Facebook have monitored email servers across Southeast Asia and hacked into computers of Palestinian supporters.

The role of Israeli intelligence assets inside Muslim-dominated Malaysia is a long-running issue that involves strings of stay-behind agents left by the British colonial authority. These underground networks are descended from two strands of Jewish administrators and merchants in colonial Malaya. First are those who have origins in the Ottoman empire and migrated under Britain's favorable policy toward the Donmeh Jews (hidden Jews inside the Islamic community across the Arab realm, Turkey and Iran) during the Ataturk period. Second are Baghdadi Jews involved in the opium trade. More recent recruits are ordinary bureaucrats and military officers who are in need of a handful of shekels to pay their gambling debts.

The spotting of increasing amounts of flotsam and jetsam off the Australian coast are meant to throw public attention off track. In actual flotation situations, there would be less debris with each passing day, as seats become waterlogged and life jackets deflate. Obviously, submarines from Diego Garcia are jettisoning pieces of aircraft through their missile hatches with blasts of compressed air. Bodies can be frozen in morgues with life jackets to be partially opened before dispatching them out the torpedo tubes.

Soros Gets More Than a Pound

The Malaysian jetliner, and its hidden sibling in Tel Aviv, are the instruments that should have guaranteed Zionist supremacy over the global economic and political order throughout this century. Instead, their grandiose design is collapsing under its own fabrications and delusions, as Israeli envoys scurry into the shadows like rats under spotlights. The FBI and Interpol have a monumental task ahead. Crush Israeli terrorist apparatus and hunt down their cells until world civilization is safe again.

"Thieves, murderers and liars" are mere words that can hardly describe the crafty criminality of the Israeli spy chiefs. But what about their paymaster, what does Soros get out of the deal? For one thing, the Mossad turns over the Kinesis microchip technology as thanks for his patriotism. Chips aside, what Soros really, really wants is the satisfaction of payback against Malaysia. Few things are more important than money, and that short list includes revenge.

The Hungarian Jew tycoon, who bought US citizenship after defrauding the Bank of England, has a die-hard grudge against Malaysia. During his cunning attempt to wreck the currencies of Southeast Asian, with the hidden agenda of buying assets and property on the cheap, Soros was slammed down by Malaysia's then Prime Minister Muhammad Mahathir, who imposed a currency board to stop capital flight. That was back in 2008. (The Zionist-influenced Western media and Wall Street bankers quickly denounced Mahathir as "anti-semitic", forgetting out of their dismal cultural ignorance that an Asian Muslim cannot be such since fellow believers across the Arab world are more Semitic than European Jews.)

If revenge is a dish best served cold, Soros has ice in his veins and waited till his dying days to gouge out a pound of flesh from Malaysia's body politick.

At the risk of sounding as soft as Lady Portia with her aristocratic Venetian accent, let me suggest that the world community is to be governed with compassion for the poor and genuine democracy, and not by a top-down global order imposed with violence and greed from a self-appointed religious minority. So as the noose tightens on that little rogue state that would be king of our planet, let us mourn the victims of Flight 370 as much as we grieved over those who died inside the World Trade Center. Such bloodthirsty evil should never be allowed to strike again.

(6) Malaysia Airlines MH370 'ping' recordings will not be released as doubts grow over their validity



MAY 19, 2014 4:47PM

NEW doubt has crept into the search for Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 after the Australian search agency said it would not make public the audio recordings of four acoustic "ping" signals.

After strong initial certainty they were hearing black box transmissions, the Joint Agency Coordination Centre headed by Angus Houston now appears less certain that they came from the plane. "Analysis on all four detections is continuing," said the JACC in a statement to News Corp Australia.

"The recordings of the detections will not be released at this point in time."

Retired Air Chief Marshall Houston had earlier said he could see no issue with releasing the audio, but that position has changed after six weeks of intense examination of the signals.

Questions are now being raised over the legitimacy of the two sets of pings, detected by the Ocean Shield's towed-pinger locater on April 5 and 8, and why they need further analysis given they have already been subject to extensive scrutiny. [...]

One possible reason for the JACC's reluctance is that it would only cause more speculation from so-called experts. However, the mystery is already so awash with wild theories that its release would unlikely cause the searchers to lose focus.

But the fact that analysts were continuing to pore over the transmissions suggests they are reviewing earlier assumptions they did come from the jet's black boxes.

(7) First book on MH370 mystery blames US war games


May 18, 2014

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. [...]

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.

One theory: Flight MH370 posits that there was a cover-up. "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." [...]

MH370 Revisited Part 1: Malaysians Defy Zionist Disinformation

By Yoichi Shimatsu

World Exclusive to Rense.com


KUALA LUMPUR - At a closed-door seminar on the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, veteran police commanders and retired military officers said that erroneous media reports and bizarre blogger theories are aimed at debunking the logical conclusion that the jetliner was hijacked. Trivialized speculation and futile searching have presented a mid-sea crash as the only possible scenario and a given fact without a shred of evidence.

Meanwhile the country's largest ad agency is pushing a cynical publicity campaign to persuade families and friends to give up the search for their loved ones. Across the capital Kuala Lumpur, gigantic billboards and electronic signs are posted with "condolences" and "mourning" for those aboard MH370, asserting without an iota of proof that the passengers are dead. The shadowy ad firm Ganad behind this cruel hoax is hardly a moral standard bearer, after admitting to unreported business contracts and bribery in a court of law last year.

Who could be behind this campaign to demoralize the Malaysian public? A veteran Malaysian police detective at the seminar said that psychological-warfare tactics are being orchestrated from the Mossad station in neighboring Singapore, a stronghold of Zionist influence since the colonial era. The SingaIsraeli cover-up has backfired, however, as millions of skeptical Malaysians filter fact from corporate media lies and hold on to the possibility that someday, somehow the hostages will be freed from captivity.

Emerging Consensus Points to Israel as Perpetrator

The consensus among the gathering, which included veteran police and military officers who have insider access to government information, includes:

- The last radar detection of MH370, picked up by an airport at Surathani, Thailand, showed the jetliner moving due west between Penang and Lankawi island, past 2 a.m. when radar at the local international airports had already closed. The plane was not following a southerly arc toward Australia as erroneously suggested by European aircraft experts cited in the mass media.

- Eyewitness accounts of a low-flying jetliner over the Maldives are bona fide and consistent with other evidence showing the jetliner was forced to land on nearby Diego Garcia island, a US military facility in the British-controlled Chagos Islands group, where a large contingent of Israeli Defense Force personnel are stationed.

- The early-on claim that two Iranian terrorists were aboard was a red herring planted by the Mossad. The European passports in their possession were stolen in Thailand and their air tickets were purchased over the phone, suggesting a frame-up by Israeli spies, who operate out of the Chabad Houses in Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok. The false terror scare was a ruse to convince the US military to permit MH370 to land at Diego Garcia.

- Before departure from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) the pilot ordered extra aircraft fuel, indicating a plan to fly the jetliner after transiting at Diego Garcia. With full fuel tanks, a Boeing 777 can easily reach Israel.

The map of southern tip of Diego Garcia shows where the MH370 passengers were detained, at an abandoned NSA complex at the top of the map, recently used as a prison for rendition suspects. Formerly called the Ground-based Electro-Optical Deep Space Surveillance center, it was used by the NSA to track and process data from spy satellites. Its functions have been replaced by USAF-NSA orbital platforms. The demolished satellite dish park is shown below the NSA complex.

The Unknown Soldiers

On March 18, some 10 days after the hijack, American passenger Philip Wood managed to send an i-Phone message, consisting of a dark "selfie" photo of his hooded head. His voice message was probably received, transcribed and edited into a standard SOS text by his fiance Sarah Bajc, a business executive in Beijing with intelligence connections. His message reads:

"I have been held hostage by unknown military personnel after my flight was hijacked (blindfolded). I work for IBM and I have managed to hide my cellphone in my ass during the hijack. I have been separated from the other passengers and I am in a cell. My name is Philip Wood. I think I have been drugged as well and cannot think clearly."

The key words here are "unknown military". A trained security expert, Wood would have detected British, Australian or Turkish accents among the hostage takers. The only other military contingent on Diego Garcia, second only to Americans in numbers of personnel, are the Israelis. Dressed in unmarked uniforms, the Israels would speak in English with a variety of accents and therefore fit his description of an "unknown military."

Wood was unaware of his location. GPS data from his i-Phone phone indicate that the passengers were held in the southeast sector of the ring-shaped atoll at an abandoned NSA facility. Formerly known as the Ground-based Electro-Optical Deep Space Surveillance center, the fenced site with several structures has been used for extraordinary renditions in the war on terror, as attested to in a 2009 lawsuit in a London court by two Egyptian prisoners secretly detained there, as reported by The Guardian.

As shown in the Egyptian suspects' court testimony against the British military, allied forces have had free rein to run their own operations on Diego Garcia without interference from the US military. Therefore, it was possible for the Israelis to remain in control of the Flight 370 passengers and crew at the remote NSA facility, after turning over the two Iranians to American interrogators.

Wood's role as the security expert for the Freescale Semiconductor team aboard MH370 would have prompted the Israel team to separate him from other passengers for solitary confinement. He was taken the switching facility for an abandoned array of satellite dishes, which appear as circles on the ground, south of the NSA compound.

The Israeli commandos isolated Wood because, as the team security expert, he was the only person who knew how to organize the computer programmers and other passengers to refuse to disclose their names and job titles to their captors. By hiding or exchanging their passports, and refusing any cooperation, the passengers could prevent the hijackers from completing their mission of identifying the Freesoft staffers and taking them on a smaller military aircraft to Israel. Wood's task, in contrast, was to protect the data, so vital to American national security, whatever the sacrifice.

By March 24, Sarah Bajc's on camera interviews with CNN and BBC bureaus in Beijing, and her pleas to the US Embassy, spurred the State Department and CIA officials to launch an inquiry as to why an American security expert was being held by a foreign military. Once investigators examined the GPS data sent with the i-Phone photo, American intelligence officials realized to their dismay that MH370 was parked on the US military base in Diego Garcia.

That shocking discovery caused the American officers at Diego Garcia to order the Israelis to remove the plane and its passengers from their jurisdiction. Since a return to Kuala Lumpur would have caused an uproar, the only acceptable destination was a Royal Australian Air Force base in the Outback, north of Perth. RAAF Base Pearce at Bullsbrook is a joint-use base with the Singapore Air Force, putting it under de facto control of the Israel Air and Space Wing, which organized the MH370 hijacking.

By hiding the plane in Western Australia, the military allies could to buy time to resolve the diplomatically embarrassing crisis. The plane never reached that holding center.

Prenuptial Tragedy

The probable recipient of Wood's smart-phone message is his Beijing-based fiance Sarah Bajc. A marketing expert for high-tech companies, she has professional links with the US Commerce Department, which began early in her career as a member of a federal committee on foreign trade. Former Commerce Secretary Gary Locke was US Ambassador to Beijing until the end of 2013, so she had personal access to the Embassy. As such, she has connections with US intelligence officer and the Western news media, including CNN and BBC, which covered her shocking statements that governments were running a cover-up over the hijacking and that the MH370 passengers were still alive.

In many ways, the romantic link between Wood and Bajc as tech-security experts was similar to the relationship between CIA counter-proliferation agent Valerie Plame and Ambaassador Joe Wilson. By no odd coincidence, the opponent of both brainy couples was the same: Israel along with its neoconservative operatives in the Pentagon.

Bajac claimed the jetliner was escorted by fighter jets . That sighting on descent to Diego Garcia was possible due to Wood's security training, which enables an agent to regain consciousness against a dosage of sedatives, in this case sleeping gas released inside the airplane cabin. While civilians tend to succumb to drowsiness aboard vehicles, security agents undergo psychologial training to revive themselves from sedative-induced slumber. As a result, Wood saw the jet escort and realized that MH370 had been remotely hijacked.

Asleep at the Wheel

The possibility that the passengers and crew were sedated via the air vents was confirmed by a police detective and a military officer at the Kuala Lumpur seminar. Calls to mobile phones of passengers aboard MH370 by relatives triggered ring tones that went unanswered, indicating the passengers had been drugged. That scenario gains credible support from the erratic steering just before MH370 made its U-turn to cross over the peninsula, indicating that the pilot was struggling with drowsiness just before the controls were taken from his hands by an electronic hijack.

The release of airborne-tranquilizers via the interior vents was patented in August 2003 by inventor Jose Paul Moretta, as part of a remote-piloting system to foil terrorist hijackers. Aircraft manufacturers may have developed a working system a decade earlier, at least since 1995, for installation on high risks air routes, for example, the Middle East.

Oxygen deprivation is not used in emergency situations because it can cause permanent damage to the brain and sensory organs. That false media claim by so-called aircraft experts is obviously intended to maintain airline secrecy about the anti-hijacking system aboard many large jetliners. The existence of a gassing system explains why airline regulations forbid oxygen cannisters aboard passenger jets, since an independent air supply would enable terrorists to stay in control of a hijacked jet.

(There is inconsistency over the specific Boeing 777 used for Flight 370 on March 8, with the Malaysian Air Service claiming it is a wholly owned aircraft delivered in March 2002. In contrast, the Planespotters group surfaced a document indicating the plane is an older model leased to MAS by GA Telesis. A change of plane number, with cooperation from Boeing Southeast Asia, is not inconceivable for two purposes: insurance claims for the loss of a plane and passengers; and to hide the past installation of a tranquilizing system when the jet was owned by the Kuwait aircraft leasing firm ALARCO. Corruption and cover-ups are standard practice at Boeing Southeast Asia, which under its current management is allegedly engaged in criminal trafficking activities along with bribery and kickbacks for plane sales.)

The electronic takeover of MH370's controls over the Gulf of Thailand is a telltale sign that the pilot lost his nerve at the last minute and had failed to turn the aircraft westward as ordered by his spymaster. It will never be known whether the pilot realized that he was under Israel command, since espionage agencies use "cut outs", middlemen who appear not to be associated with the operation planners. His assumption was probably one of aiding Islamic extremists, as is the case in many so-called jihadist false-flag attacks secretly organized by the Mossad against US or Arab interests.

The Titiwangsa Mountains, which forms the backbone of the Kra Peninsula, is risky for pilots even in daylight hours because of its jagged peaks. During nighttime, downdrafts are especially dangerous, and MH370 crossed one of the highest passes of the Main Range.

A Loss of Nerve

After takeoff from Kuala Lumpur airport just after midnight, the pilot should have veered off the scheduled route to Beijing while the aircraft was still overland and not yet reached the seacoast. To the northeast of Kuala Lumpur, the jetliner could have safely slipped between the lower-elevation Genting Highlands and Fraser Hills for radar invisibility and turned westward, remaining far south of radar range of the international airports at Penang and Langkawi island.

The pilot, however, missed the easiest turning points and proceeded beyond the Pacific coast, missing other possible crossing lanes over the increasing higher Main Range. When the plane crossed the extended Malaysian-Thai maritime boundary, a radar station at Kota Terengganu, south of the Thai border, picked up signals indicating sudden erratic right and then left turns, first rising and then dropping to a much lower elevation. These out-of-control movements indicate the pilot was having problems with steering the aircraft. The plane's radio communications was suddenly cut off, as indicated by the co-pilot's futile attempt to make a distress call from his mobile phone.

If the cockpit vents were indeed spewing tranquilizer gas, the pilots could have easily put on their oxygen masks and ordered the loosening of breathing masks inside the passenger cabin. Obviously, the emergency oxygen system had tampered with by a Boeing mechanic at Kuala Lumpur International Airport or earlier at Tarbes-Lourdes Airport in the French Pyrenees, where the leased planes was parked and serviced by GA Telesis for six months of 2013. The plane actual production number is therefore vital to the investigation, regardless of insurance claims.

Within minutes, a Thai military radar unit at an undisclosed location, picked up signals indicating the plane turned around and was flying back toward Malaysia. That U-turn, following some confused movements, indicates that an Israeli satellite or electronic-warfare aircraft had successfully taken over the controls of MH370.

The Boeing 777 then crossed over a series of peaks of three Malaysian states, including Terengganu, Perak and Kedah. After 2 a.m., the jetliner slipped through the gap between Penang and Lankawi airports, where its trajectory over Butterworth rail station was picked up by a radar unit at Surathani Airport in Thailand, which was probably alerted by Thai military aircraft trackers. Thailand will not disclose what it knows because of its recent purchase of a fleet of SAAB fighter jets to counterbalance Malaysia's Sukhoi attack planes.

No pilot would attempt such such a crazed high-risk flight path over a series of mountains at nighttime. Therefore the only possible explanation is that the pilot failed to perform his assigned task, and an electronic hijacking system took over the cockpit for a mad dash toward Diego Garcia with the crown jewels of American technology and a cargo of unsuspecting passengers fast asleep under the effects of drugged air.

Faking a Mid-Sea Crash

After their harrowing stopover at Diego Garcia, what could have happened to MH370? With Phil Wood out of their way and possibly dead by March 20 at an isolated corner of Diego Garcia, the passengers apparently continued to refuse cooperation with their Israeli captors.

Thus, delays stymied the Israeli effort to identify the computer programmers who had developed the game-changing Kinetis KL02 and KL03 microcontroller chips, the core of a new generation of ultra-small weapons, which Israel hopes to deploy against Iranian military installations and underground nuclear plants. The debriefing of passengers would thus a require more interrogation time and more interrogators with Malay and Chinese language skills than available on Diego Garcia.

Then, as State Department intelligence began its inquiry into the solitary confinement of the American security expert at an US military base, the Israeli had to quickly move the passengers off Diego Garcia. The American garrison obviously could not have the physical evidence of the Malaysian plane nor the illegal detention of more than 200 civilians uncovered by diplomatic intelligence and CIA agents.

Sleight of Hand

The planned move to Australia was unacceptable to IDF Headquarters in Tel Aviv. The Freescale chip designers were urgently needed to produce their breakthrough microcontrollers in Israel. The Israeli military-industrial complex was obsessed with a crash program to design and build ultra-small self-guided weapons for the coming attack on Iran's underground nuclear plants, air-defense system and command-and-control centers.

Therefore, the Israeli pilots headed toward Australia as ordered by the American military but then faked an air crash in the southern Indian Ocean. A steep nosedive with last-second pullout was enough to deceive the Australian and US governments. After a radar image was picked up in Perth, the pilot turned the plane around in the opposite direction, toward the Red Sea and Israel. This is why the sea search was not launched until more than two weeks after the plane went missing.

Once again, MH370 evaded radar detection, this time on its final journey, to the Promised Land.

(10) MH370 Revisited Part 2: Protecting US Defense Technology


By Yoichi Shimatsu

World Exclusive to Rense.com Part 1 4-13-14

KUALA LUMPUR - Several blogs are using dubious photo analysis to question the credibility of Philip Wood, the American aboard MH370 whose i-Phone message showed that the plane had been hijacked, its passengers detained by "unknown military personnel" and the detention center to be on the Diego Garcia military base. The secrecy surrounding Wood's background does not mean that he and his fiance Sarah Bajc are "crisis actors". On the contrary, the facts point to his status as a tech-security agent for the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).

Across Asia, the DIA has a reputation for professionalism far surpassing the CIA's armchair scholars, narcissist neophytes and diplomatic cocktail freeloaders. Wood fits the DIA profile to a tee, being computer savvy, knowledgeable about defense-related technology, careful in maintaining his cover at IBM, silent about his military record and physically tough.

The fact that the Israelis confined and likely murdered a DIA agent reveals the extreme desperation that compelled the theft of America's most advanced defense technology. The midair hijack aimed at abducting 20 computer-technology experts with Freescale Semiconductor exposes the outlaw mentality of a rogue state that holds its closest ally and benefactor in utter contempt. Simply put, Israel has emerged as America's most implacable enemy and all the more dangerous because it poses as an ally and friend.

Israel resorted to stealing the Freescale Kinetis KL02 and KL03 techology, rather than waiting to pay for licensing rights, because the micro-controller is urgently needed for the upcoming military assault on Iran. The widening divide between the State Department and Israel over Iran policy, particularly the question of a bombing campaign, put the hawkish and fanatic Netyanhu government onto a "go it alone" warpath against Tehran.

Since it is logistically impossible for the Israel Air Force to fly long-distance sorties against Iranian military sites without control over Syrian airspace, the only feasible alternative to aerial bombing is to unleash hordes of lightweight ultra-small robotic weapons that can fly and crawl into underground military facilities.

The KL series microcontroller units (MCU) are the brains for these tiny self-guided weapons, whose sensors can find pathways through air ducts, power conduits and plumbing pipes to attack electronic controls and incapacitate personnel with nerve gas or biowarfare agents. When launched from Dolphin submarines under the cover of nightfall, there is no effective defense against an army of tiny ninja robots.

The one person who stood in the way of Israel's devious plans was Philip Wood, who was not a crisis actor, as suggested in a disinformation campaign, but instead an American patriot. Without his courageous efforts to organize resistance against the hostage-takers, the Israelis would have gotten away with the perfect crime. Now, thanks to his sense of duty and personal sacrifice, the perpetrators stand naked before the world as the despicable thugs they really are. The test of American honor rides on whether the White House or Congress dares to defy Israeli treachery by acknowledging Phil Wood with a posthumous medal.

Get Off of My Cloud

Texas resident Wood was, on the surface, a quiet and unassuming computer memory expert with IBM, following his father's career path. Oddly, no details of his work on cloud computing and computer security in Dallas-Fort Worth are listed on his Linked-in page.

The omission of a local client list is due to the fact that Big Blue's largest customer in Fort Worth is USAF-Lockheed Plant 4 at Carswell military airfield. Plant 4 is where the Air Force and its aerospace contractors install, test and improve the aviation electronics for America's most advanced fighters, including the F-22, F-35 and F-18, along with the navigation systems for drones, missiles and smart bombs. Computer security against hackers and human-based industrial espionage is, therefore, all-important to protecting American defense-technology edge against its many adversaries and friendly rivals.

The Air Force upgraded its longtime partnership with IBM computer services with a 2010 master contract to transfer its production data, including weapons design and personnel matters, to a cloud computing platform with strong security. Even well-protected servers in any lab or office can be hacked with relative ease with newer software. Cloud computing, in contrast, establishes a virtual network protected by the latest firewall software even before its public release. The network is constantly monitored to determine user behavior and to track down any attempts to break into unauthorized areas.

The other advantage of the Cloud is its flexibility, moving as it can across different computer nodes. If a major node is disrupted or destroyed by a virus attack, terrorist bombing or a nuclear strike, the data network simply moves onto other computers in safer locations. Therefore, in event of a nuclear war, America's command-and-control system will survive intact to deliver a precision counterstrike with its remaining arsenal.

Called to Kuala Lumpur

After much of Plant 4, with all its components, came under cloud protection, Wood was transferred to Kuala Lumpur and Beijing following an IBM contract signing with Freescale Semicondutor.

The Austin-headquartered firm, a spinoff of Motorola, is heavily dependent on Asian programmers, with their excellent design skills, mathematical prowess, lower salaries and persistence at quality control. This is why the world's smallest MCUs were designed and perfected at the Freescale plant in Petaling Jaya, on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur.

The creation of the KL series prompted top defense-technology experts to assign watchdogs over Freescale's Asian operations. In November 2013, Jo
