The airport safety delayed an Air France flight this evening before departring for Paris immediately after the company received a bomb threat over the phone at the airport of Ezeiza.

The Obama Administration is not going to participate in a cover up of terrorism. What's the real upside? That it will help protect his "making friends with Muslims" idea? It's a crappy idea that even he doesn't really buy. It's a sop to the moonbats. A terrorist incident will allow him a graceful out of that moronic idea.
If he tries to cover it up, he's complicit after the fact in a terrorist incident, and he has no reason to trust that the governments of France or Brazil or any of the other countries with citizens involved will willingly participate in the coverup should they learn that it was terrorism.
The Obama Administration will also have no guarantees that the terrorists involved would not claim the plane and produce proof (on the internet) that they did it.
So, if it was terrorism, we'll know as soon as "they" know.
It may have been terrorism, but I don't think it's likely for a few reasons. For one, nobody claimed credit, which makes for pointless terrorism. Two, it blew up over the ocean, where no television crews could film it and there was no collatoral damage of the wreckage slamming into a city. Again, not very terroristy.
Lastly, it was Brazil and France. Not out of the question, but neither are very likely terrorist targets these days, when the world's the terrorist's oyster.
So, I'm guessing no terrorism. Something went crappy with the plane. Of course, I realize this will just mark me as in on the conspiracy, but I'm OK with that.
Copied and pasted from the National Weather Service:
The commuter plane in Buffalo didn’t have a mayday call.
When planes are in trouble, sending out maydays are the last thing the pilot is worried about. They are panicking trying to save the plane.
How do you know that they didn't? Do you trust the press to report it?
Who loves you.Pray.(((((Hugs))))
Hurricanes are ‘born’ from tropical depressions North of the Equator and along the Equator off the coast of Africa. Try to get your geography right, at least!
Not immediately after 9/11.
Going back to Cousteau, the French have all been pretty cutting edge with the dive stuff. They're really into deep sea for some Frenchie reason. They'll have very good submersibles available.
Sorry I am still getting a hand of this
This is fishy. No mayday, just disappears. I know lightning strikes hit planes all the time. I think they are even tracked by the FAA.
Does anyone know if there are documented cases of large planes actually being brought down by lightning strikes?
On one of the pilot message boards they explained how the planes have the capability to dissipate lightening strikes and didn’t think turbulance could take down the plane either.
With the wreckage over miles you have to wonder about if it blew up as there was no May Day.
So planes must be going down all the time in the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone then, right?
If TV hadn't caught the second plane hit the World Trade Center on 9-11-01 we would all still be believing that a white middle aged pilot had lost control or had a nervous breakdown or was depressed or it was really the center fuel tanks (over Long Island), bla, bla, bla... We will never know the truth as to what happened to this plane. If they find the black box, it will be inconclusive. If they don't, it will be "sparks" (thanks to John Bellucci). If it was a terrorist act, we'll never know...
I wonder why the article was scrubbed from the momento24 site?
I am flying out Thursday cross country...prayers for a safe go and back(vacation with the family)..
God bless all those on that doomed flight and thier loved ones left behind to grief...
It sure could and our stupid DoD was so quick to say it was terrorism — they had not even found the wreckage when they made that statement.
bump for later
Investigators have few clues to help explain what brought the Airbus A330 down. The crew made no distress call before the crash, but the plane's system sent an automatic message just before it disappeared, reporting lost cabin pressure and electrical failure.
I don’t think so because many pilots pass that point. Maybe it was just bad luck of Air France. Maybe the FAA would have records of any downed planes in that area.Again, we need the flight data recorder.
Clinton had every reason in the world to cover-up TWA 800 in ‘96. Obama doesn’t have any reason to do it now, especially with a flight that didn’t even originate in the United States.
All he needs to do is say nothing before his big speech. Like he did with the muslim who gunned down two of his soldiers in Little Rock yesterday. The topic of islamic terrorism is off the table this week.
Hang on, though.
“President Nicolas Sarkozy has formally opened a French military base in the United Arab Emirates, France’s first permanent base in the Gulf.”
Does make you wonder when you see how far the debris field was. They were so quick to rule out terrorism that it made me think terrorism. Doubt if we ever get the facts.
Have first hand experience with cover-up having been at the OU football when the ‘lone suicide bomber’ supposedly blew himself up. He had enough explosives in his apartment and car to blow up five city blocks and it took around 18 trips to the bomb disposal area and when they blew it up all my windows in the house rattled and I am five miles away. BUT there was no evidence of terrorist connection even though his roommate was Pakistani and he spend months in Pakistan and looked like a Muslim terrorist with his beard according to authorities who found his suicide note on his computer three weeks after it happened. All our over active imagination. Yeah right!
It would be interesting if they found the black box.
They have to find the flight data recorder. It has the answers.
Matt Drudge is ALWAYS on it. If the MSM wasn't smoking crack and believing ALL news was about their chosen one (or wording their articles to meet the anti-conservative, pro-whatever the chosen one wants pandered to the public that day), they'd be the ones telling us this news. They are inept and incapable of being trustworthy news sources. Kudos once again to Drudge.
I hope they find it.
With the way he’s been acting lately, I wouldn’t be surprised if Barry blamed the Joooooooooooz!
The media will blame global warming for causing the thunderstorms that supposedly took down the plane.
The bomb threat was made against the same airline (AF) but in a different city (Buenos Aires, Argentina). I am guessing they were checking the airline’s response to the threat without giving away the actual location of their planned operation (Rio).
It sure would. Read an article that said a French small sub was on the way which means it could go down to recover it.
“It was a victim of bad weather. The place where Air France was over the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone. The Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ), appears as a band of clouds, usually thunderstorms, that circle the globe near the equator. The solid band of clouds may extend for many hundreds of miles and is sometimes broken into smaller line segments. The ITCZ follows the sun in that the position varies seasonally. It moves north in the northern summer and south in the northern winter. Right now the sun is over the equator causing this bad weather. This is the area where hurricanes are born.”
Yet, strange why a commercial aircraft would transverse this fully known zone of super bad weather, as other aircraft have done daily, and fall from the sky, without even a peep from the pilots.
I guess that we’ll have to wait on the black-box recovey to realy know - as much as our government wants us to know!
There will be cover-up!
They will. . France has asked the US military to use its network of spy satellites and listening stations to help find an Air France jet that disappeared over the Atlantic, defence ministry officials said Monday.
Yes, it does. I saw somewhere that there are two debris fields about 35-40 miles apart. That pattern suggests the possibility of two aircraft and thus a mid-air collision.
Has anyone heard if ships are at the debris fields yet?
Obviously George Bush and a his Jewish Banker friends planted this bomb to garner support for continued violence against Muslims....
I think we can trust the French and Brazilians to not cover it up.
Leastwise more than we can trust our own government.
It was bad luck that they were hit by lightning in a very sensitive area Again, we need the flight data recorder because everything is just speculation.
I agree. The plane was said to be flying through bad turbulence. Planes always do that. And that the thunderheads were extremely large around the plane. As if planes haven’t flown through large thunderheads with lightning before. If they were so vulnerable, there would be a lot more disappearing aircraft over the oceans. I flew from LA to Syndney once and we went over a cyclone near Fiji. It was rough with lightning all around. And that was 25 yrs ago. I would think the technology is much better now.
In the slight chance it was terrorism, the only way we’ll know is if it’s determined by France or another country, or from a group taking responsibility.
Otherwise, our government won’t ‘go there’ - terrorists aren’t the bad guys anymore. /s.
