MH370: Satellite Images Show Up to 122 'Potential Objects'
NBC ^ | March 26, 2014 | Alastair Jamieson and Henry Austin

Posted on 03/26/2014 5:52:03 AM PDT by don-o

Satellite images taken on Sunday show 122 "potential objects" in the search for debris from missing flight MH370, Malaysian investigators said Wednesday.

Analysis of the images, which were supplied by France-based aeronautical firm Airbus Defence, revealed objects in the southern Indian Ocean around 1,588 miles from Perth, Australia – close to where other objects were previously seen.

Then why do we have some what were considered to be credible military personnel saying that they had multiple indications the plane landed in Pakistan previously?

Australia’s search operation has ended for the day with no confirmation of the potential debris field.

Its worth emphasising that the French images were taken on Sunday before severe weather forced the suspension of the search operation on Tuesday.

It was their “intelligence opinion”. I don’t think you can find a SINGLE REPORT that is written from the “first person” - which says, “I saw it there.”

They were all relying on, “My contact at the CIA, says that one of their contacts in the Middle East, talked to a guy over in India, who has a brother-in-law in Afhanistan, whose sister in Pakistan, has a child who was going to the market, and his friend at the market told him that his father SAW THE PLANE!” ... LOL ...

Sometimes, that’s how “intelligence” works. SOMEONE actually did see it! ... :-) ...

I have seen or heard nothing from the General who confidently asserted this last week - even to the extent of giving a 24-48 hr time frame for it to be confirmed.

Sadly, retired General Mac no longer has any shred of credibility. Fox News should put him out to pasture, and Megan Kelly needs to apologize for letting him hype his crazy theory on her show.

Considering they offered no supporting evidence I'd say it'e because they were mistaken.

In the Pacific Ocean, yes. In the Indian Ocean, no. There are no currents that might take them there, and a whole lot of land between Japan and the south Indian Ocean.

It might be in regards to the Malaysian government - but how about in regards to the calculations done by Inmarsat and the AAIB (UK Accidents Investigations Board)?

Yea, this whole thing stinks. Looks like the map coordinates on the link show the debris is fairly close together. Just so odd that after 2 weeks, currents, etc. it’s all floating together. This whole investigation has been mis-handled and botched from the beginning. Stories have been put out, then changed. I’m not sure if we’ll ever find out the “truth”. Poor families of the passengers.

To narrow down the search area, Zweck took the plane's last known position, as of 2:11 a.m. local time, and then looked for straight-line routes that traced a great circle around the globe. That would be consistent with a scenario in which the crew — and perhaps the passengers as well — were incapacitated, leaving the plane to fly on autopilot until the fuel ran out.

If the crew was incapacitated, how the plane turn?

However, the only way to verify the analysis is to identify wreckage in the search area, an Alaska-sized stretch of the Indian Ocean about 1,550 miles (2,500 kilometers) southwest of Perth, Australia.

There have been some intriguing sightings of debris, gleaned from satellite imagery and aerial observations. Ships and aircraft from six countries — Australia, China, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea and the United States — are combing the area. NASA says it's taking pictures of the southern search zone with its Terra and EO-1 satellites. But so far, Inmarsat's masterful theorem has yet to be proven.

What about the ELT's?

But, but, but, he had proof, sources in Pakistan, reliable sources in Pakistan.

[I posted in one of the related threads several days ago that it seemed strange that none of those 'sources' apparently had a cellphone that takes snapshots. They could have sent him a pic of the plane, at the very least.]

The calculations by Inmarsat and the AAIB (UK Accidents Investigation Board) didn’t make any “calculations” about what happened inside the plane ... :-) ...

What their calculations are about ... very simply ... is where to concentrate the search.

“I’m not sure if we’ll ever find out the “truth”. Poor families of the passengers.”

I agree w/ your assessment of this tragic situation. We may never know the what or why of what happened.

I’m not a CNN watcher, but my spouse has watched countless hours of their insipid coverage. I think it’s shameful for all these so called experts to tout their theory of the hour w/o any regard to facts or the lack of facts. The hubby has finally turned off CNN and will come ask me to check online for new information.

As for the Malayasian government, they have been an example of how NOT to handle a missing airplane story. Yes, people want to know what’s going on...but it helps no one when the information handed out is wrong and keeps changing daily/hourly.

I’m still thinking it landed and once the sensitive and desirable cargo removed it was remotely flown to nowhere and ditched. I have nothing to support that and only hope the souls on board have a new life.

I believe the good General was also of the opinion that the contrailing airliner that passed over SoCal a few years ago was a Chinese ICBM launched from a submarine right off the coast.

No evidence, no indication of a Chinese sub there, no ICBM ever found and no warhead impacts anywhere known but he ran with it. I’m afraid the General is easily swayed, gullible, and/or, conditioned to go with the most sensational thing he say to keep that face time going on the networks.

“He’s a kook.”

Rachel Maddow is a kook. Sheila Lee Jackson is a kook. Harry Reid is a kook. Don Lemon at CNN, entertaining the idea that the plane disappeared due to the possibility of the supernatural, is a kook.

I don’t have any idea what information the General used to make his comments, but I’m not ready to dismiss his long and distinguished military career and discredit him as a kook.

I haven’t agreed or disagreed with any theories…I would just like a plausible explanation from someone regarding the missing jet.
