My first thought when I saw this story was, why the fuck is the U.S. probing this crash. It’s a Malaysian airline flying in the Far East with no American passengers. Why are we the self selected policeman for the world? Let the Malaysians investigate their own failures. This has absolutely nothing to do with the United States, but our corporate fascist masters need to use this “terror” attack to further clamp down on our freedoms and liberties. New restrictions and guidelines will be imposed. The fear mongering by the captured MSM will be ramped up to make the ignorant masses cower and beg for protection.
The timing of this “terrorist” incident is very interesting. The world is on edge with the Ukraine crisis deepening. The U.S. and EU have been blustering, but they are having their asses handed to them by the old KGB agent – Putin. What better than a “terror” distraction. I can’t wait to find out the “terrorists” were from Iran, Syria or Russia. I’m sure our U.S. terrorist “experts” will discover the truth. I wonder if they knew the truth before the bomb exploded. I wonder why I’m so skeptical about anything I’m told by my beloved government keepers.
I sure hope this doesn’t interfere with Obama’s round of golf today.
US Probes Terrorist Concerns Over ‘Missing’ Malaysian Airlines Jet

The dismal news overnight that a Malaysian Airlines jet, carrying over 200 passengers and crew, had “gone missing” appears to have become considerably more troublesome. News this morning of pools of oil off the Vietnam coast – suggestive of a crash – are dreadful but, as NBC News reports, perhaps more crucially, U.S. officials told NBC News on Saturday they are investigating terrorism concerns after two people listed as passengers on the missing Malaysia Airlines jet turned out not to be on the plane and had reported their passports stolen (while in Thailand).
The lastest on the “missing” plane (via The Telegraph),
Vietnam air force planes spot two oil slicks suspected to be from missing Malaysian Boeing 777 jet.
The fate of flight MH370 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing remains unclear more than 12 hours after air traffic controllers lost touch with the plane.
However, Vietnamese authorities said they had spotted a 14-mile long oil slick 120 miles off the coast of Cape Ca Mau – the most southerly point of Vietnam’s mainland.
A Vietnamese government statement said the slicks were spotted late on Saturday off the southern tip of Vietnam and were each between six and nine miles long.
But there are growing concerns that this was a terrorist attack… (via NBC News,)
Luigi Maraldi, 37, was the only Italian on a passenger manifest released by the airline after the jet disappeared over the South China Sea.
But his father, Walter Maraldi, told NBC News from Cesena, Italy: “Luigi called us early this morning to reassure us he was fine, but we didn’t know about the accident. Thank God he heard about it before us.”
Luigi Maraldi was on vacation in Thailand, the father said. He said that Luigi Maraldi’s passport was stolen one year ago.
The foreign ministry of Austria confirmed to NBC News that police had made contact with a citizen who was also on the passenger list, and who reported his passport stolen two years ago while traveling in Asia.
And Reuters confirms that both passports were stolen in Thailand (where there is considerable social unrest occurring currently),
“[The Austrian] embassy got the information that there was an Austrian on board. That was the passenger list from Malaysia Airlines. Our system came back with a note that this is a stolen passport,” he said.
Police found the man at his home. The passport was stolen two years ago while he was travelling in Thailand, the spokesman said.
The foreign ministry in Rome said no Italian was on the plane either, despite the inclusion of Maraldi’s name on the list.
Newspaper Corriere Della Sera reported that his passport was stolen in Thailand last August. The police could not confirm press reports that it had been registered as lost or stolen there, as they said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs was responsible for thefts abroad.
