It’s time to reboot the investigation into Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370.
Well, this is nice. The latest search
distraction location for Malaysian Airline Flight MH370 has sifted about 700 miles northeast of the previous area. It’s still in the Indian Ocean Garbage Patch and CNNMSNBCNBCABCFOX still refuses to mention the words “Garbage Patch” in relation to this part of the Indian Ocean. But I did hear someone on CNN just say every piece of junk seen floating in the water isn’t necessarily part of Flight 370, so that’s a step in the right direction I guess.
Based on the new information, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority said it had shifted the search area for the jet that disappeared nearly three weeks ago to a region 1,100 kilometers (680 miles) to the northeast of where planes and ships had been trying to find any sign of it.
… AMSA said the change in search areas came from new information based on continuing analysis of radar data between the South China Sea and the Strait of Malacca before radar contact was lost with Flight 370 early on March 8. AP
Notice, the change in the search area is based on new analysis of that unidentified radar blip that headed back toward Butterworth Air Force Base after Flight 370 disappeared off the transponder tracking. That unidentified radar blip is now being universally reported by the MSM as Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370. Of course, there is no evidence of that.
Radar signals from the location where the missing aircraft, Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, was last contacted by ground controllers suggested that the plane may have turned away from its northeastward course toward Beijing, officials said. Military radar then detected an unidentified aircraft at several points, apparently headed west across the Malaysian peninsula and out into the Indian Ocean, the head of the country’s air force told reporters. The last detected location was hundreds of miles to the west of where search and rescue efforts were initially focused.
The military took no immediate action on Saturday to investigate the unidentified blips, whose path appeared to take the aircraft near the heavily populated island of Penang, and only later realized the significance of the radar readings. The search area was then expanded to take in waters west of the peninsula as well as east — encompassing almost 27,000 square nautical miles, an area bigger than South Carolina — but officials did not give a full explanation for the move.

The Thai military also saw a blip. An unidentified blip.
Thai officials said their own radar showed an unidentified plane, possibly flight MH370, flying towards the Strait of Malacca.
But when asked why it took so long to release the information, air force spokesman Montol Suchookorn said: ‘The Royal Thai Air Force only looks after any threats against our country.’ Metro UK Mar. 19
The Malaysian military came under some criticism because, according to their story, they saw an unidentified blip heading right towards Butterworth Air Force Base at a considerable rate of speed and apparently did nothing to intercept it.
This unidentified radar contact crossed their entire country, blowing through several radar tracking sectors without identifying itself, making a bee-line for a military installation and they did nothing to even find out what it was? They tracked that blip for OVER AN HOUR heading toward their base and didn’t scramble any jets to get a visual on it? Why do you think that is?
Investigators are puzzled over Malaysian military’s inaction in responding to an unidentified blip on their radar screens that was later said to be the missing flight MH370, the New York Times reported today.
It reported that the plane flew past three military radars and over Penang but nothing was done to identify it, which would have helped prevent its disappearance. Malaysian Insider, Mar. 16
That radar data has not suddenly grown a transponder recording showing that it was in fact Flight 370. There is no new radar data. They are just interpreting it differently now. The only difference is the media has forgotten that the blip is just an unidentified blip and as you can see, it didn’t cause the Malaysian military any concern and it was used to redirect the search from the start.
Authorities explained that this “new lead” is based on their analysis, not a significant new clue. “There is a set of radar data from a number of sources (Malaysian and Thai military radar), but most of this work is closer analysis of existing data rather than new radar data coming to light,” said Martin Dolan, chief commissioner of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau.

Taking that into consideration, let’s take a closer look at the rest of the new groundbreaking story.
According to officials, that blip was moving faster than previously reported. How fast? No one is really saying.
But let’s take this into consideration doing something that the MSM isn’t: let’s consider this in light of the original Inmarsat satellite “handshake” data which derailed the search for Flight 370 in the first place sending it down to the Indian Ocean Garbage Patch.
Here’s an interesting graphic I got from New Straits Times. See if you can spot the interesting part.
First of all, notice how they show Flight 370 being tracked back across Malaysia as if what they tracked had been absolutely identified as Flight 370. That’s the first thing.
But do you notice something else? The “partial handshake” from the Inmarsat data at 8:11am is the ONLY Inmarsat satellite data they mention. Gone is any mention of the tracking of all those other “handshakes”
It’s gone but not forgotten. Remember this?
This is that graphic put together by Scott Henderson that was being spammed up everywhere for a few days until it was dismissed as being based entirely on his speculation. The Washington Post actually had a similar graphic with the last 4 “handshake” locations plotted out on a similar graph but they removed it, rightly, once is was exposed as being based on no hard evidence from Inmarsat.
Notice they didn’t bother labeling the rings where those “handshakes” supposedly took place. They didn’t label them in terms of their distances from the satellite which is all the information they could possibly glean from the data.
Actually, it was pointed out by a reporter someplace that the company Inmarsat, may not have even recorded the earlier “handshakes” since they don’t typically do that if the airline isn’t paying for their service. Might just explain why they have refused to hand over their raw data to the Chinese who have asked for it and it might actually explain why there is no call-outs on any of the graphics detailing the distance of those rings to the satellite.
But consider this: if they did actually have that missing data which they refuse to hand over, how could this new location fit within the known “handshake” distances that they used to plot the NTSB’s high probability tracks? In order to cross those distance rings at those specific times while traveling a total of 700 fewer miles, the speed of the plane would have to be considerably slower. Wouldn’t it? Could it even remain in the air at such a speed?
This is all we really know about Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370. Say what you will, gripe, cry, moan, call your buddies from the next cubicle, ask Uncle Sunstein how to handle pesky conspiracy theorists… do what you have to in order to sleep at night. Frankly, I don’t care.
This is ALL we REALLY know about the fate of Flight 370 and given that FACT, it’s where we have to pressure certain authorities to redirect their search.
Why is it that this new presumed flight path for 370 wasn’t picked up on the Jindalee Operational Radar Network? It had to have flown right through it. You know if you fill in the two supposed arcs of where they say that last partial handshake came from, you get an area surprisingly close to where it went off the radar in the first place over the South China Sea.
Today’s ridiculous distraction, the irresponsible assumption that the blip seen and ignored by Malaysian military is Flight 370, some new garbage floating in the Indian Ocean Garbage Patch… all of these heaped upon the growing pile of previous misinformation scattered about the wreckage of this so-called “investigation”… is now bordering on the criminal.
This is no investigation. It’s a diversion, a distraction, meant to keep Flight 370 from ever being found. And it’s become painfully obvious even to those who are not “conspiracy theorists” by nature. You have to have a special kind of education not to see it. The kind CNN employees obviously have.
That’s why Cass Sunstein had to go on MSM in order to rant about the “conspiracy theorists”
Mr. Sunstein says the problem is the internet and that we shouldn’t be rushing to judgement of what we perceive as nefarious behavior from our “unnamed sources” without solid evidence.
I think the time has come, with all these false leads and fabricated distractions, to say we have all the solid evidence we need in order to know something is dreadfully wrong with this phony WWE style “investigation”
Someone high up on the pay-scale doesn’t have any intention of finding Flight 370 and that is the ONLY thing that has been disclosed in this investigation. That and a bunch of junk floating around in the Garbage Patch.
It’s time to reboot.
