No link, because we all know the story, and I’m just spit-ballin’.
The disappearance of flight 370 seems to have brought out a lot of people’s inner… terrorist spy novel author guy. The MFM and their allies in Government are releasing information that seems to contradict itself day-to-day. (“The transponder was turned off before the last radio contact.” “Oh, wait, no it wasn’t.”) And people have been weaving these bits of misinformation together to form theories that the aircraft has been flown to a secret Taliban/Al Qaeda/Uighur base for some nefarious purpose. And it may be so, but the Inner Skeptic has his doubts.
The thing that has bothered the Inner Skeptic from the beginning is, if you planned to use the plane in a terrorist attack, why acquire it in such a high-profile way? Every Government is on alert for it, now. If you wanted to load a plane with explosives or a nuke or a dirty bomb, why not just acquire one on the international used aircraft market? That would be much lower profile
Mr Occam is offering the Inner Skeptic a very sharp and shiny piece of metal, and says that the plane probably had a systems malfunction, possibly an on-board electrical fire, that incapacitated the plane’s transponder and communication systems, as well as the crew. It then flew on autopilot out over the Indian Ocean before running out of fuel and crashing into the sea.
Not very exciting, but it seems more reasonable than an elaborate terrorist aircraft-theft scheme.
And another reason it can’t be terrorism is because President Obama personally killed Osama bin Laden; thus ending terrorism forever so we can reduce our military to Great Depression levels. (If I understand the talking point correctly.)
