The key to this story is the FBI (once again) and Chris Roberts’ intimate relationship with them.
For those of you who know me, you know I don’t do “Henny Penny” stories very often. I don’t huff and puff and screech about Russian nukes flying over the North Pole and I don’t publish bullshit about the New Black Panthers (Cointelpro) promising to kill cops in Ferguson or Baltimore.
However, with that said, this latest story that’s running amok in the MSM about how a cyber intel expert claims to have been able to hack into a plane’s on-board “infotainment” system and from there cause the plane to “fly sideways” is something that needs to be addressed quickly I would imagine.
According to the FBI affidavit, however, when he mentioned this to agents last February he told them that he also had briefly commandeered a plane during one of those flights…
The affidavit, however, does not indicate exactly which flight he allegedly caused to turn to fly to the side. WIRED
Let me first explain the basics of the story. According to the official version, last month Chris Roberts boarded a United Airlines flight from Denver to Chicago (keep Denver in mind, it’s important later)
During that flight, Chris sent out a Tweet:
Chris was taken off his connecting flight at his final destination and interviewed for several hours. They wanted to know if he intended to take control of the flight. Chris said “no’ he didn’t in a widely circulated WIRED magazine interview which just came out.
The cyber security expert claims he was making a joke… on Twitter… about taking over the controls of a plane… on Twitter… the cyber security expert did.
