Police hunt mystery woman who made final phone call to doomed jet captain

Police hunt mystery woman who made final phone call to doomed jet captain as first picture emerges of his estranged wife and family...FULL TITLE

Call was made to Captain Shah just hours before he took off in MH370 Pay-as-you-go phone which made the call was bought with fake ID Fake ID was used to get around security measures put in place after 9/11 Increases fears Captain Shah may have links to terrorism Investigators will soon question the captain's estranged wife in detail

The captain of missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 received a two-minute call shortly before take-off from a mystery woman using a mobile phone number obtained under a false identity.

It was one of the last calls made to or from the mobile of Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah in the hours before his Boeing 777 left Kuala Lumpur 16 days ago.

Investigators are treating it as potentially significant because anyone buying a pay-as-you-go SIM card in Malaysia has to fill out a form giving their identity card or passport number.

Introduced as an anti-terrorism measure following 9/11, this ensures that every number is registered to a traceable person.

But in this case police traced the number to a shop selling SIM cards in Kuala Lumpur.

They found that it had been bought ‘very recently’ by someone who gave a woman’s name – but was using a false identity.

The discovery raises fears of a possible link between Captain Zaharie, 53, and terror groups whose members routinely use untraceable SIM cards.

Everyone else who spoke to the pilot on his phone in the hours before the flight took off has already been interviewed.

(snip)

In a separate development, The Mail on Sunday has learned that investigators are now poised to question Captain Shah’s estranged wife in detail.

Well, that worked out great, didn't it.

If the phrase “Allahu Akbar” was spoken at any time by either party during that call, then the passengers on that flight are now statistics in the ongoing jihad against civilization.

Good, profound post. Its a fundamental truth. Passing laws and even throwing tons of money at problems are often just feel good measures that in reality accomplish little, if anything.

All that searching around in the vastness of the southern Indian ocean is pure Barbra Streisand to distract the low information types. That A/C is somewhere up north, the government/governments know it and are using the time to set up assault teams to go get it. We are dealing with complex international diplomatic problems here. The truth will out...sooner but maybe later. JMHO!

There are two separate areas of investigation for the arm chair detective.

Who was behind the plot?

Where did the plane go?

Could be two unrelated things..such as

UFO in air space due Iran Hijacking it..that is what the plane would be at that point...

And what State shot it down and now is trying to cover it up...

One plausible scenario for what happened to the plane and why some areas are not being searched by people who have the capability to find it (such as the US)

Extremely interesting report. Had suspected such but never read in print. I'll try to find something for I too have suspected very little to nothing was done on followup investigations. Smells like a bounty of money was passed to keep the investigations to nonexistent.

Check out any and all insurance policies on or by the pilot and who the beneficiary is.

Then check out where along the southern route he may have bailed out.

his estranged wife and family

How "estranged" could she be since they were all living under the same roof until the day before the flight???

Was she the mystery wonman???

Was she the one who called on the throw-away phone just before the flight???

Were they arranging for a place for her to pick him up -- in the waters off Indonesia???

Check all insurance policies on him for sure.

Yep —

And in preparation for these 16 days of silence she moves out of the house they share together the day before the flight so that she cannot be found to be interviewed.

By the picture it’s fairly obvious he is not a wahhabi. Other pictures of his wife have her in jeans. He’s a western oriented guy who would be at home in any US suburb.

He didn’t kidnap the plane and send it to Pakistan, someone else did, if it happened at all.

Lying (Taqiyya and Kitman)

There are two forms of lying to non-believers that are permitted under certain circumstances, taqiyya and kitman. These circumstances are typically those that advance the cause Islam - in some cases by gaining the trust of non-believers in order to draw out their vulnerability and defeat them.

From article.

Although the couple – who have three children – were separated, they had been living under the same roof.

A source said: ‘Faizah has been spoken to gently by officers but she has not been questioned in detail to establish her husband’s behaviour and state of mind in the days leading to the incident.

‘This is partly for cultural reasons. It is not considered appropriate in Malaysia to subject people in situations of terrible bereavement to the stress of intensive questioning.’

The softly-softly approach has been challenged by the team of FBI agents working with Malaysian police. They have pointed out that she may hold ‘vital clues and information’ to Zaharie’s mental state.

‘The whole world is looking for this missing plane and the person who arguably knows most about the state of mind of the man who captained the plane is being left alone,’ said a source close to the FBI team.

The source added: ‘If we want to eliminate the chief pilot from the inquiry, we must interview her in detail to find out what his state of mind was.’

Nope. Neither pilot appears terribly, er, devout.

Reportedly, they've known each other nine years. They were planning to marry soon.

“He didn’t kidnap the plane and send it to Pakistan, someone else did, if it happened at all.”

Agreed. I just don’t buy a terror hijacking of the plane by the pilot or co-pilot. I’d believe pilot suicide before that. Now, I’d say a passenger hijacking is possible, but a hijacker certainly would not fly the plane practically to Antarctica.
