Skip to comments.Fmr. Gen. Doubles Down on Claim Malaysian Plane Could Be in Pakistan to Be Used for Terror
Posted on 03/18/2014 8:11:32 PM PDT by Bronzewound
Appearing on Fox & Friends last week, retired United States Air Force Gen. Thomas McInerney speculated that the missing Malaysian passenger airliner had been intentionally flown to South Asia where it could be used as a delivery vehicle for conventional or nuclear explosives by terrorist actors. On Tuesday, McInerney repeated that claim and said that the recent actions of the Israeli and American governments lent credence to that theory.

HE IS A PROFESSIONAL "SURMISER"
He should be on Art Bell.
I can't believe we're listening to him.

Jet Jaguar to Ripliancum
Landed in Pakistan. All passengers dead. Gold and other cargo unloaded. Will be repainted and loaded with a small nuke. Fly over Israel, detonate EMP.

Sorry. Upon reviewing the article again, it was posted TODAY, but the General’s comments are from last Tuesday...so this is old news but apparently he repeated the same on Hannity tonight.
Plane ends up in Afghanistan or Pakistan ..... this dovetails with what the General was saying.
After a few hundred miles of flight to the southwest, the hijackers could have suddenly veered off from the standard airline routes well before reaching Dushanbe, and perhaps then flown into Al Qaeda-controlled Afghanistan or Al Qaeda-controlled Pakistan, where a number of 5,000+ foot runways might be available. Obviously by now every conceivable intelligence asset has been dedicated to pursuing these kinds of possibilities, and this is merely just one plausible scenario.
From your link. Thanks.
I don’t know if he’s right or not, but I do know his skeptics on here have no idea where that plane is. Thus I can conclude they don’t know if he’s right or not either, their sarcasms notwithstanding.
Is this why Mr Former is former?
there are old planes for sale all over the world that could be converted to terrorist use, no need to hijack one to do that.
That is what’s so stupid about them checking everyone at the airports.
Anyone with enough money can just go buy a giant mothballed place fill it will explosives and fuel and take off from a private air field and there is nothing the government could do to stop them.
I thought she was in China.
It’s the new Natalee Holloway story.
Fox used to be the “Missing White Girl Channel” now it’s the “Missing Plane Channel.”
Look at a world map. Once the plane got around India and into the Arabian Sea, Iran and Pakistan are right there. It could not have gotten into Afghanistan without overflying Pakistan or Iran but that probably would have been no problem.
This story is going to outlive us all and we’ll never know the happy ending! Bummer.
If it has been in Pakistan for eight days, it probably won’t be there much longer.
Where do you hide one of these planes? You would need a helluva hangar. Are there a lot of those in the Taliban controlled areas of Pakistan?
I ask because I honestly do not know.
And if it’s in Pakistan, I would guess that we know where it is, and that drones are waiting for it to move an inch before a hellfire is shot up its 6.
But we *feel* so much safer when we’re groped by TSA.
If the aircraft is in Pakistan, our spies ought to check out the luxury resorts there where the passengers might have been put up.
It’s in Islamabad.
No, it’s in the Uighur Republic.
No, it’s in South India.
No, it’s in Rangoon.
No, it’s in Ecuador.
Wait a minute, I heard someone saw it in Mali!
Lots of very interesting speculation but... where is it, really?
A girl in tight jeans can carry a dime in her pocket, and we have satellites that can read if it’s heads or tails from outer space, so... where’s the airplane?
he’s credible , and as he said , 24 to 48 hrs will tell the tale
Lots of reasons this is looking better as a theory:
USS Kidd is leaving the Indian Ocean search (what does US know? Definitely more than they are saying.).
Catherine Herridge reporting tonight that for the first time, a source told her directly that there is NO evidence that the plane crashed.
ELTs have not gone off.
Obviously, there was intent from the beginning of the flight to make this turn and take it off course.
Efforts were made to ‘go dark’ by shutting off transponder & ACARS ... indicating the plane was being taken somewhere & the pilot(s), whoever was at the controls, didn’t want it tracked.
Not buying pilot suicide - believe that would have happened sooner and probably on the original route.
Not buying the ‘hostage’ situation ... after 11 days, somebody would have been making ransom demands or saying something - plus, 230+ people are a lot to deal with.
Not buying major airplane malfunction with the new info on the lat/long change programmed into the airplane’s FMS.
Now the General pops up with this - curioser & curioser. Would love for a last unreported “ping” as mentioned in this article to show up from a reliable source.
Apparently our analysts are too busy looking at nice butts to look for planes where they shouldn’t be. Well, who can blame them?
That's very funny. I'm afraid you might be right. It's wearing me out.
But he said that last Tuesday morning, nearly a week ago.
And what actions would that be -- committing ships and planes to a search area off the southwest coast of Australia???
Has Pakistan moved recently and we don't know about it???
If you are referring to LtGen McInerney as "Mr. Former" the you should read his Air Force bio. He had a very distinguished career and rose to the military's second highest rank. Retired senior generals and admirals (three and four stars) are never completely out of the loop, and there are plenty of serving officers in McInerney's orbit. He is certainly credible.
That you, Moochelle?
Qiviut, your logical progression makes sense. Given the facts known, the idea of pilot suicide is not logical. I highly suspect that the plane is in the hands of bad guys and the passengers are dead.
There’s no need to steal the plane to deliver weapons.
A better question is who on the plane was worth kidnapping, if anyone. It’s a Chinese - Malaysian flight. Was a Chinese general fighting the Urgyurs or billionaire on the plane? A Western general? A major government official? An NGO group that can be blamed for XYZ?
Thank you for your informative post. I was kidding of course, and I apologize for being flippant.
Still, in the end how credible any of the countless experts appearing in the media are will decide the final resolution (if any.)
LtGen McInerney didn't specify what actions we have taken, nor should he. He did indicate as others have that Israel is taking extra precautions to defend against an attack involving this new "extra" 777. As for committing ships and planes to a phony search, I would point out that such ruses are routinely employed to shield real interests and actions elsewhere.
Just need to know those that know and those that wish they knew.
The plane flew over two days after Will and Kate landed for a vacation
It will be revealed when they exit this paradise
There’s your clues. Solve the puzzle !
My guess was Somalia as initial stop for fuel, then almost anywhere. This airplane could easily mimic a legit international flight, and cross our adiz with impunity. All it takes is 5k feet of packed dirt and a semi load of jet a.
you eat up with that terminal disease ..pecker head huh
He was close to claiming inside information. They mentioned on Hannity that when that hotel was attacked in Mumbai, India a few years ago, US intel knew more than it let on.
Large amounts of gold on plane. 30 businessmen from some corp. That’s all I have read so far into it.
If that plane with 152 Chinese onboard was in Pakistan the Chinese government would be sending an armada there through the Malaccan Straits to get their citizens back.
Furthermore to get to Pakistan it would have to get through Indian radar without detection and the possibility of that is near zero.
I did imagine that he might know a bit more than we do, but, you can’t be sure there is anyone left who would confide in an old school general.
I disagree. Access to an entire long range, jumbo airliner with all of its capacity makes it possible to deliver even the most clumsy, outsized bomb that can be loaded inside it - and enables you to deliver it right to the heart of an enemy's territory. I can't imagine a hijacking this elaborate wasted on anything less than a spectacular strike at the Infidels.
But we would all have to agree that wherever that plane got to, it got there without being detected.
Looks big--but not exactly gigantic.
I think Pakistan would have quite a few of these sheds at their bigger airports.
Yes, you can be sure that there are plenty of serving officers in McInerney's orbit -- that's why Fox News pays him. The serving generals use him to spread stories that advance their interests, and give him enough of what he needs in exchange. And given his high-level experience with sensitive information and command responsibility, McInerney can be trusted not to damage missions and sources by saying more than he should.
