Brazilian officials say an Air France jet has made an emergency landing due to a bomb threat.

An airport authority spokesman reports that everyone on board has been safely evacuated.


It was flying the same route as an Air France jet that crashed last June off Brazil's northeastern coast, killing all 228 on board. While no definite cause has been determined in that crash, authorities have repeatedly ruled out foul play.

There’s no way that the AF flight on June 1, 2009 simply fell apart in turbulent thunderstorms. A big cover up has been at work since then.

“While no definite cause has been determined in that crash, authorities have repeatedly ruled out foul play.”

Which means I can avoid clicking on the link. ;)

Yes. What ever happened to that investigation?

A plane blows up and disintegrates into bits, and they have no idea why, but keep insisting it wasn’t a bomb-enhanced breakdown.

They keep insisting that they can’t get to the flight recorders. I call BS.

I’ve said from day one that this was probably terrorism. The attempted Fruit of Kaboom Bomber just reinforces the probability.
If anyone does any research on the Air France crash, you can see the connections. Here is one of my FR posts I posted over a year ago on June 17, 2009 with a lot of the dots connected.
It’s a tragedy no one in the Lame Stream Press keeps investigating this.

Don’t assume just because no terrorist group has claimed responsibility that it is not terrorist related. Actually it is normal over that last years for Al Qeada and other to not claim responsibility for terrorist acts for months after, if at all. Do some research and you will find this is true.

That said, I am not saying that this was caused by terrorism, but I have been tracking incident closely and will add to my previous posts.

I am not one for conspiracy theories but this crash has some very disturbing coincidences.

May 26 - France opens a military base in Dubai. This is the first time France has opened a military base in a foreign country in 50 years. It was a well known fact that one of the things that motivated Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda was the establishment of US military bases and personnel in the Mideast, specifically in Saudi Arabia.

May 27 - A bomb threat is received on an Air France flight from Buenos Aires Argentina.,0,2686261.story

Google Al Qaeda, Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay and you will find articles dating to 2003 about terrorists in this tri-border region, including information on attacks they have carried out.

May 31 - Air France 447 crashes mysteriously. Immediately authorities discount terrorism and focus on weather, mechanical issues and possible pilot error.

June 4 - Spanish pilots say they saw a bright flash of light that descended vertically for 6 seconds in the vicinity and time that AF 447 may have been lost.

June 5 - The LA Times posts an article disputing that weather was as bad as reported, with analysis showing that the most severe storms were 150 miles from where AF 447 was supposed to have crashed.,0,6741218.story

Further weather analysis shows that the plane flew through thunderstorms for about 12 minutes, or 75 miles, but that these thunderstorms were similar to what aircraft routinely encounter. In fact, 12 other international flights traveled along essentially the same flight corridor without incident.

June 10 – A report that 2 passengers on AF 447 were on a French Terrorist Watch List was quickly refuted by the same organization that a few hours earlier reported the information. Also reported was the Air France CEO disputed that the flight crashed due to air speed problems.

June 11 – Reports that the bodies are scattered 50 miles apart in the ocean, indicating a break up of the plane at high altitude. The reports discount terrorism, but how anyone can dismiss terrorism as a possible cause of this crash with these facts is beyond me. I would think that this would be the first thing investigators would be looking at.,2933,525792,00.html

June 17 – Forensic analysis of bodies recovered indicates that the plane broke up in the air. Although no bodies showed burns or damage from an explosion, such a cause can not be ruled out at this time.

I just don’t see how anyone can eliminate terrorism as a possible cause for this without more facts. When I hear Brazilian, French and US officials dismiss any talk of terrorism, I wonder how they can honestly say that!
