Missing Malaysia Airlines flight way off course, not sending ID code when it vanished, Malaysian Air Force official tells CNN
And with that, we appear to be heading back towards the terrorism angle again..
CNN goes on to report this in its latest dispatch:
If correct, these are ominous signs that could call into question whether someone in the cockpit might have deliberately steered the plane away from its intended destination, a former U.S. aviation investigator said.
"This kind of deviation in course is simply inexplicable," said Paul Goelz, former managing director of the National Transportation Safety Board.
However, veteran pilot Kit Darby, president of Aviation Information Resources, told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that mechanical problems could still explain everything: A power failure would have turned off the main transponder and its backup, and the plane could have flown for more than an hour, he said.
According to the Malaysian Air Force official, who declined to be named because he is not authorized to speak to the media, the plane’s transponder apparently stopped working at about the time flight controllers lost contact with it, near the coast of Vietnam.
Feinstein: CIA searched Intelligence Committee computers, violating Constitution and breaking the law »
Head of intelligence panel said agency appears to have violated Constitution and federal laws.
Dianne Feinstein didn’t make much of a stink about the AP being spied on.. or innocent people’s cell phones.. or other nations.. or anyone.
But …. THE SENATE COMMITTEE?
Now they went too far, eh?
That was then. This is now…
Maybe the Senate Intelligence Committee had a ‘come to God’ moment on intelligence issues.
This may one of the funniest things I have seen in a long time..
And say what you will about health care and the President, but this was pretty good advertising to use comedy and a video watched by young people to drop serious hints about health care..
Great marketing. And a few good laughs.
Phantom of the cell phone
These phantom cell calls people are making to the passengers aboard Flight 370 are creepy. The phones ring—no one answers of course. But even weirder, as I write on my other site HORROR REPORT today, now apparently smart phones are ONLINE on a Chinese network QQ..
KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Malaysia’s military believes it tracked a missing jetliner by radar over the Strait of Malacca, far from where it last made contact with civilian air traffic control off the country’s
As if things weren’t weird already.
Ten nations are looking in vast waters for wreckage. Maybe they shouldn’t be…
Three years after Fukushima..
We’re Fuk-ed.. Radiation begins to hit the West Coast of the Untied States—despite all those experts who said no fear .. radiation is here. Of course it’s also being called ‘low level.’ Low level radiation.. It’s nice to put some happy adjectives before a dreadfully serious word, isn’t it??
If you’ve ever driven to the Bloomsburg fair in Pennsylvania, you may know where this photo was taken. It is from 1901—long before a highway was in the location that a train was then..
I love looking at old photos, such as these.. I can stare for hours and try to figure out what was going through the minds of the cloak-laden men and women of yesterday..
In our modern times, America is filled with dilapidated structures, broken down bridges, and pothole infested highways. Trains are dead.. Malls are dying. The nation is shifting into a lower standard of living. But at one time this nation was thriving.. But here’s some images of the past. It wasn’t great for all, and sometimes for no one.. But these photos of yesterday showcase perfectly that the nation was in its youth and alive with energy and vibrancy. ..
Wink at the tallywhacker
I love the Brits!
And damn, they know how to write a great celebrity gossip column..
..and this: Three earthquakes shook Ohio and were felt in Pennsylvania Monday.. .. Some in Ohio called 911 fearing that the earthquake was actually an intruder in their homes.. Marcellus Shale territory .. One result of the earthquakes: Ohio has halted gas drilling near Youngstown. Not that there’s any connection…………….
Love the message of this video.
The sun is setting later now .. Love daylight savings time
Someone’s calling.. and no one answers
I am perplexed .. so many rumors abound about Flight 370. But the weirdest one of all: People are apparently calling the cell phones of the passengers from the apparently doomed plane. The phones are ringing.. no one is answering..
Why can’t we get a geo location on these before they go dead? The NSA can find anyone, right?
None of this makes any sense..
