Missing MH370: Hijacking Not True, Lead Investigator
Malaysia Star ^ | Saturday March 15, 2014

Posted on 03/15/2014 1:51:14 AM PDT by nickcarraway

The head of the investigation into the missing Malaysia Airlines plane has denied any evidence of hijacking, The Telegraph has reported.

Rather, hijacking is just one of a number of possible lines that they are looking at.

His comments came after a Malaysian government official told Associated Press that investigators had concluded that one of the pilots, or someone else with flying experience, hijacked the missing Boeing 777-200ER jet carrying 239 people.

The official said that hijacking was no longer a theory. "It is conclusive."

Refuting this claim, Azharuddin Abdul Rahman, who is leading the MH370 investigation, told the Telegraph: "It is not conclusive. I'm heading the investigation and nobody is saying that. It's not true.

"We are looking at the possibility, we're looking at all possibilities. We're doing every profile of the passengers and crew but there is no firm evidence or leads so far."

We can believe him, he swears to Allah (PBUH) that it is so.

it’s all about saving face to them, and to us it’s about finding a potential wmd on the fly, egos be damned. This fiasco reminds me of the behavior following Fukushima.

So it was either hijacked or it wasn’t. Put it in Breaking News.

The plane is in Iran being loaded with Russian nukes to look like they came from Syria...

The problem is nobody knows.
It is all speculation.

Perhaps he KNOWS more than he is willing to tell. Another opinion.

"Perhaps he KNOWS more than he is willing to tell. Another opinion."

Personally from what I see I think the Pilots were involved.
It could be a hijacking that went bad, but I think it was a pilot involved incident, that did not go as planned or maybe it did.
We may never know, if it crashed in some remote area.
If it landed somewhere, at least one person should be able to escape eventually.

They're probably consulting with James Kallstrom to make sure they get it right...

That could be the truth, literally.

If they’ve found nothing implicitly indicating either pilot or crew member or passenger as having terrorist ties or intentions of a hijacking so far then that could be the truth. Doesn’t mean they didn’t, just means they haven’t found it so far.

Seems the case now that “someone” on that plane took control and took it of course for reasons unknown but no real way to know who right now. I wouldn’t bet my paycheck on anyone (or anything) just yet.

My bet is that the very young copilot with only 1,800 hours was part of the hijack team. If this becomes the accepted story, nobody will ever trust flying on any planes with muslim pilots. This is why the police didn’t search his house for a week. They don’t want to find out the truth.

And they left the copilot’s house unsearched for a week....

They don’t want to find out that the young copilot may have been part of the hijack. It would be damning on many levels.

It’s 50-50 IMHO that we will NEVER find out what happened.

My working theory until new facts are introduced is that the young copilot with only 1,800 hours was part of the hijack team, but the passengers at some point fought back and the plane went down in the ocean.

By the time floating wreckage is found in days, weeks or even months, it could be 100s or even 1,000s of miles from the crash site, and the black box pinger will be long dead. Even with current track analysis, they may never find the main fuselage wreckage or the black box.

50-50 we’ll never find out. And for sure, Mayasia Air does NOT want the world to conclude or discover that one of their pilots may have been a jihad terrorist.

Hence, his home was not examined for a week.

A number of governments know exactly what happened. They don’t want to let on what their surveillance capabilities are.

The bad guys did this as a dry run for a future multiple simultaneous hijackings. They need to know everything that needs to be shut down to avoid detection.

Ya know, I don’t immediately jump at the idea that it was the younger co-pilot. Guy seems to have had his stuff together being a co-pilot on a 777 at 27 years old and all. Could be, but, maybe the pilot went off and did something crazy here.

Don’t know yet. May never know.

I think the plan required a pilot in the cockpit and a hijack team in the cabin. One or both pilots.

If there was somebody else in the passenger list capable of flying a 777 and switching off the commo, that can be discovered fairly easily.

That wouldn’t work, because after this fiasco, every jetliner will soon be retrofitted with bleepers that can’t be turned off in the air.

Any guesses as to what happened after the hijack itself went down? Any odds guesses that the plane is intact someplace? I think it was pretty clear from the beginning that it wasn’t mechanical failure. Stuff switched off and direction change would preclude a Payne Stewart type event.

50-50 we never find out. My best guess is the passengers fought back and it went down.

That scenario may impair future hijack missions of that nature. The next one will have more plans for passengers.

Do you think ‘someone’ knows where it is but isn’t saying (Indonesia for example) because of the optics of the whole thing?

It’s ‘interesting’ to me that the last known heading has it flying toward Banda Aceh.

I don’t think we’ll ever know. But the Malaysians seem to be in no hurry to investigate the flight crew.

After this, say in a month or two, their will be bleepers on every jetliner that cannot be turned off from inside the plane while in the air. They will start automatically upon takeoff, and will require a ground crew on the outside to turn them off.

Agree about the bleepers on every flight. I’d love to know to what extent the Malaysian civil service is muslim. The country is 65% muslim. Is the remaining 35% present to approximately that proportion in the civil service sinecure type jobs or are those reserved for the majority demographic.

Ie, to what extent is this investigation being conducted by like minded individuals.

Oh yeah. And I suspect the misdirection initially re: last known location of the plane may have given Malaysia and/or Indonesia time to clean up any crash site or as you said, just let it soak until all evidence is gone.

The pilot was the one with the simulator. He could have ‘flown’ just about any scenario he wanted. Practice, practice, practice...

What about the passports? If they landed the plane they got over 200 passports to work with. They might not work in Israel or the US but they’d probably work in a lot of other countries.

In 1909 a steamship called the Waratah disappeared in the Indian Ocean off the coast of South Africa--it has never been found and the reason it disappeared is still a mystery.

But as far as I know no one has ever suggested that Muslim terrorists were involved.

Islamic bigotry aside, he is correct. There is no evidence of hijacking. He is correct, there are numerous possible scenarios.

When there is evidence of whatever happened, then there can be positive conclusions. There can be speculation till hell freezes over but absent evidence it is just that...... speculation

It was shot down and multiple countries approved that decision. They are going to find it near the last radar contact in the Gulf of Thailand where the water depth is about 170 feet at most. Dangerous but doable for even a recreational diver. Once they recover and dispose of enough debris to befuddle any future investigate they will acknowledge it’s location. Fast forward a decade and the investigation will be “inconclusive, but without any evidence of foul play”.

This all serves the greater good. That’s how communist governments think, including our own.

IMO, plenty of governments know more than they are telling. With all the technology and monitoring going on, I find it impossible to believe that this plane “disappeared” and no one knows where.

Yup.

The co-pilot being described as a ‘good muslim’ should send chills through any of the relatives though.

Well... unless they release a list of all the places they checked (even if we limit it to known airports), then I have no way to know or not know if they did.

The question is, are you absolutely sure they did think of it? Remember, they were searching the wrong ocean to begin with.
