We should have known this topic would invade our air space again as the anniversary of the disappearance of MH370 is March 8.
The US is now blaming the missing Malaysian passenger jet on their favourite scapegoat, Vladimir Putin. The poor guy gets blamed for EVERYTHING. And if that isn’t enough—MH17 is his fault too, apparently.
You’d think they’d have given up attacking him by now but they’re stuck on page 87 of their playbook and can’t come up with anything more imaginative.
And it’s not too bright, when you think about it, because without the plane for evidence there is no way to prove what happened to it, so how can they point fingers? Let’s see the proof. Black holes? This is getting interesting and approaching a slippery slope. Their make-believe science is laughable—but it’s CNN so what do we expect?
They offer a veritable banquet of ridiculous ideas as to what transpired but it’s not fact, so they don’t know anything for sure except that it was Putin’s fault?
If Putin knew what happened to the planes—and I think he probably does—he wouldn’t say anything in his own defense anyway. Or would he?
The answer to that “mystery” (they know what happened to that missing plane) will be revealed at the most opportune time. Until then, for Putin, mum’s the word. He’ll just give that cool-as-a-cucumber smile and hold his peace. ~ BP
Fasten your seatbelts, Putin conspiracy theories taking offMarch 5, 2016
A former CNN ‘aviation expert’ has teamed up with a British ‘sleuth’ outfit to accuse Vladimir Putin of masterminding the ‘hijacking’ of Malaysian Air Flight MH370, as well as Flight MH17, which went down in Eastern Ukraine on July 17, 2014.
Jeff Wise, the very same CNN expert who led the world on a global goose chase to find Malaysian Flight MH370, now wants the world to believe President Putin is personally responsible for both Malaysian Air disasters.
For those who missed Wise and CNN’s non-stop marathon coverage of Flight MH370, which went missing on March 8, 2014 with 239 people on board, every conceivable explanation was offered up for public consumption.
With the disappeared plane mystery grinding into its second week, Wise participated in a CNN panel discussion that could have been scripted by David Lynch for a Lost Highway segment.
During that episode , CNN host Don Lemon asked without a hint of irony if it would be “preposterous” to suggest that a black hole was responsible for the disappearance of MH370. Yes, very preposterous, but no matter. Mary Shapiro, former Inspector General of the US Dept. of Transportation, was happy to remind Lemon in strained yet patient teacher-speak that a “small black hole would suck in our entire universe, so we know it’s not that…”
Richard Quest, not to be outdone by a Lemon, raised the sanity stakes when he wondered – out loud for all to hear – why psychics with crystal balls hadn’t been allowed to participate in the search and rescue mission.
“It sounds preposterous but [psychics] have been used before,” said Quest, whose remark attracted mostly blank stares and the sound of chirping crickets.
Veteran television interviewer, Larry King, ridiculed his former employer for its reporting on MH370, which he very diplomatically labeled “abysmal.”
“Since day two, they’ve advanced nothing in that story but conjecture. It was breaking supposition, breaking speculation. It was never breaking news,” King said in an interview on The Rubin Report.
Indeed, if the media industry had award ceremonies for the most insane theories involving not just one Malaysian aircraft, but two, then Jeff Wise and his friends at Bellingcat would certainly be hauling home gold-plated trophies.
After describing Russia as a “paranoid fantasist’s dream” (does that make Wise a ‘paranoid fantasist?’), Wise forwarded information that he thought would incriminate the Kremlin in the MH370 mystery.
Reveling in ‘revelations’ that could have been lifted from Wikipedia, Wise noted that Russia is equipped with “technically advanced satellite, avionics, and aircraft-manufacturing industries.” And if that amazing feat of investigative journalism fails to convince you that Putin pirated the airliner to Kazakhstan, well then this next morsel of information certainly will: There were three Russians on board the ill-fated flight [Gasp]!
Who could have guessed in their wildest dreams that Russians occasionally convey themselves by means of air travel, and sometimes in gangs of three!
“Two of them reportedly had Ukrainian passports from Odessa and… might have been secret agents,” Wise surmised , as mentioned by Business Insider. Then, after finding photos of the ethnic Russians online, Wise behaved no better than a bouncer at a corner bar, proclaiming they looked like the type that would “battle Liam Neeson in midair.”
German Secret Service copies CIA playbook: blame Putin!
Some might call that comment bizarre, possibly even outright racist. Not living up to the family name, Wise fingered three Russians out of a line-up of 227 passengers from 15 different nations as the most likely suspects to overpower the aircraft. Talk about narrowing things down.
And what made Wise think fated flight MH370 was heading for Kazakhstan (which, incidentally, is not part of Russia, which further complicates matters)? Well, because the last blip received from the wayward aircraft placed it “somewhere” in one of two vast corridors stretching from northern Thailand to Kazakhstan, or a southern one going from Indonesia to the southern Indian Ocean. In other words, an area about 150 times the size of the Sahara Desert.
So out of the fantastic number of possibilities, Wise postulates the theory that the Russian-passengers-turned-hijackers broke into the aircraft’s control room and “spoofed” the plane’s navigation system to make it appear like it flew in another direction, but actually headed to the Baikonur Cosmodrome, as the Daily Mail reported .
When asked why Putin would want to steal a passenger plane when Russia already has its own shiny fleet, Wise found himself fresh out of material: “I had no idea.”
But that didn’t stop him from offering up some zany zingers anyways in an article for New York Magazine: “Maybe there was something strategically crucial in the hold, or maybe [Putin] wanted the plane to show up unexpectedly somewhere someday, packed with explosives. There’s no way to know.”
