Flight MH 37: Media Should Pose Critical Questions to US, Its Intelligence Services

Disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH 370: The Trillion Dollar Question to the US & Its Intelligence Services


Malaysian media should pose critical questions to the US and its Intelligence Services and not to the Malaysian Government 



Let me state from the outset that I totally agree with the press statements by Malaysia’s Defence Minister and Acting Transport Minister, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein that “we have conducted ourselves fairly, responsibly and history will judge us for that.”

And to a mischievous and presumptuous question from a correspondent of the Financial Times, Datuk Seri with confidence and integrity rightly said without any fear of contradiction that, “I don’t think we could have done anything different from what we have already done.”  Well done!

The Financial Times, CNN and other foreign media ought to pose similar questions to the US and its intelligence services and stop insinuating that Malaysia has not been transparent and/or engaged in a cover-up. Foreign media should stop engaging in dirty politics!

It is my hope that following the publication of this article, Malaysian mass media will focus on questioning the integrity of the US’s assistance to Malaysia in the first three weeks of the SAR mission, notwithstanding its recent offer of more assistance.

I take comfort that my reservations about the US and its intelligence services as well as other intelligence services closely linked to the US, especially British secret service, have been more than vindicated by Reuters in its news report on 28th March, 2014 entitled Geopolitical games handicap hunt for flight MH370

The search for flight MH370, the Malaysian Airlines jetliner that vanished over the South China Sea on March 8, has involved more than two dozen countries and 60 aircraft and ships but has been bedevilled by regional rivalries.

… With the United States playing a relatively muted role in the sort of exercise that until recently it would have dominated, experts and officials say there was no real central coordination until the search for the plane was confined to the southern Indian Ocean, when Australia largely took charge.

Part of the problem is that Asia has no NATO-style regional defence structure, though several countries have formal alliances with the United States. Commonwealth members Malaysia, Singapore, New Zealand and Australia also have an arrangement with Britain to discuss defence matters in times of crisis.

As mystery deepened over the fate of the Boeing 777 and its 239 passengers and crew, most of them Chinese, it became clear that highly classified military technology might hold the key.

But the investigation became deadlocked over the reluctance of others to share sensitive data, a reticence that appeared to harden as the search area widened.

“This is turning into a spy novel,” said an envoy from a Southeast Asian country, noting it was turning attention to areas and techniques few countries liked to publicly discuss.

Ultimately, the only country with the technical resources to recover the plane – or at least its black box recorder, which could lie in water several miles deep – may be the United States.

Its deep-sea vehicles ultimately hauled up the wreckage of Air France 447 after its 2009 crash into a remote region of the South Atlantic.

While Putrajaya has been forced to reveal some of the limits and ranges of its air defences, the reluctance of Malaysia’s neighbours to release sensitive radar data may have obstructed the investigation for days.

At an ambassadorial meeting in the ad hoc crisis centre at an airport hotel on March 16, Malaysia formally appealed to countries on the jet’s possible path for help, but in part met with polite stonewalling, two people close to the talks said.

Some countries asked Malaysia to put its request in writing, triggering a flurry of diplomatic notes and high-level contacts.

‘It became a game of poker in which Malaysia handed out the cards at the table but couldn’t force others to show their hand,“ a person from another country involved in the talks said.

As in the northern Indian Ocean, where Chinese forces operate alongside other nations to combat Somali piracy, current and former officials say all sides are almost certainly quietly spying on and monitoring each other at the same time. (emphasis added)



WantChinaTimes, Taiwan reported,

The United States has taken advantage of the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight to test the capabilities of China’s satellites and judge the threat of Chinese missiles against its aircraft carriers, reports our sister paper Want Daily.

Erich Shih, chief reporter at Chinese-language military news monthly Defense International, said the US has more and better satellites but has not taken part in the search for flight MH370, which disappeared about an hour into its flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in the early hours of March 8 with 239 people on board.

Shih claimed that the US held back because it wanted to see what information China’s satellites would provide.

The above is the reality which we have to confront. Therefore, desist any attempt to label the above mainstream media articles as a “conspiracy theory”. Reuters has let the Genie out of the bottle!

Malaysia’s Minister of Transport Datuk Seri Hishammuddin gave hints of Malaysia’s difficulties (as his hands were tied by intelligence protocols and or refusal by the relevant foreign intelligence services and diplomatic reluctance) but our local media failed to appreciate the nuances of his statements by not directing their questions at those parties that have failed Malaysia as their neighbour and in their duties under various defence treaties and arrangements.

Malaysian media, please read at the minimum three times, the sentences in bold AND WAKE UP TO THE REALITY that our country has been badly treated even though our country put all its national security cards on the table so that countries whose nationals are passengers on flight MH 370 could come forward with sincerity to assist in resolving this unfortunate tragedy which is not Malaysia’s making.

Malaysia is but a victim of this tragedy whose plane, MH 370 was used for a hidden agenda for which only time will reveal.

In my previous article posted to the website on the 27th March, 2014, I exposed how Israel is exploiting the tragedy to create public opinion for a war against Iran, a Muslim country that has close ties with Malaysia.

At the outset of the SAR Mission, all concerned stated categorically that every scenario, no matter how unlikely would be examined critically with no stones left unturned – terrorist hijacking, suicide mission, technical failures, inadequate security, criminal actions of the pilot and or co-pilot etc.

Given the above premise, families of the passengers and the crew of MH 370 have every right to ask the following questions of the US and other countries that have sophisticated technologies to track and monitor airplanes and ships in all circumstances.

Such questions should not be shot down by those who have a hidden agenda that such queries amount to “conspiracy theories”. Far from being conspiracy theories, we assert that the questions tabled below and the rationale for asking them are well founded and must be addressed by the relevant parties, failing which an inference ought to be drawn that they are complicit in the disappearance of MH 370.

Lets us begin.

1)        Was the plane ordered to turn back, if so who gave the order?

2)        Was the plane turned back manually or by remote control?

3)        If the latter, which country or countries have the technologies to execute such an operation?

4)        Was MH 370 weaponised before its flight to Beijing?

5)        If so, what are the likely methods for such a mission – Biological weapons, dirty bombs?

6)        Was Beijing / China the target and if so why?

7)        Qui Bono?

8)        The time sequence of countries identifying the alleged MH 370 debris in the Indian ocean was first made by Australia followed by France, Thailand, Japan, and Britain via Immarsat. Why did US not offer any satellite intelligence till today?

9)        Prior to the switch of focus to the Indian ocean, was the SAR mission in the South China seas, used as a cover for the deployment of undersea equipment to track and monitor naval capabilities of all the nations’ navies competing for ownership of disputed territorial waters? Reuters as quoted above seems to have suggested such an outcome.

10)     Why was there been no focus, especially by foreign mass media, on the intelligence and surveillance capabilities of Diego Garcia, the strategic naval and air base of the US?

11)     Why no questions were asked whether the flight path of MH 370 (if as alleged it crashed in the Indian Ocean), was within the geographical parameters of the Intelligence capabilities of Diego Garcia? Why were no planes deployed from Diego Garcia to intercept the “Unidentified” plane which obviously would pose a threat to the Diego Gracia military base?

12)     The outdated capabilities of the Hexagon satellite system deployed by the US in the 1970s has a ground resolution of 0.6 meters;  what’s more, the present and latest technologies boast the ability to identify objects much smaller in size. Why have such satellites not provided any images of the alleged debris in the Indian Ocean? Were they deliberately withheld?

13)     On April 6th, 2012, the US launched a mission dubbed “NROL-25” (consisting of a spy satellite) from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. The NROL-25 satellite was likely rigged with “synthetic aperture radar” a system capable of observing targets around the globe in daylight and darkness, able to penetrate clouds and identify underground structures such as military bunkers. Though the true capabilities of the satellites are not publicly known due to their top-secret classification, some analysts have claimed that the technology allows the authorities to zoom in on items as small as a human fist from hundreds of miles away. How is it that no imagery of MH370 debris was forwarded to Malaysia, as this capability is not classified though other technologies might well remain classified? (Source: Slate.com)

14)     Could it be that the above capabilities were not as touted?

15)     However, in December, 2013, the USAtlas V rocket was launched carrying the spy satellite NROL-39 for the National Reconnaissance Office, an intelligence agency which is often overshadowed by the notorious National Security Agency (NSA), only it scoops data via spy satellites in outer space. The “NROL-39 emblem” is represented by the Octopus a versatile, adaptive, and highly intelligent creature. Emblematically, enemies of the United States can be reached no matter where they choose to hide. The emblem boldly states “Nothing is beyond our reach”.

This virtually means that the tentacles of America’s World Octopus are spreading across the globe to coil around everything within their grasp, which is, well, everything (Source: Voice of Moscow). Yet, the US with such capabilities remained silent. Why?

It cannot be said that it is not within the realm of probabilities that the US may not want the plane MH 370 to be recovered if rogue intelligence operators were responsible for the disappearance of MH 370.

If the above questions have been posed to the US and other intelligence agencies and answers are not forthcoming, I take the view that the Malaysian government ought to declare publicly that our national sovereignty and security have been jeopardized by the disappearance of MH 370 and that the relevant intelligence agencies have been tacitly complicit in the disappearance of MH370.

By coming out openly to explain the predicament faced by our country, Malaysia may prevent a hostile act against a third country.

 I therefore call upon Malaysian mass media to be courageous and initiate such queries as only the US and other intelligence agencies can give definitive answers to the above 15 questions.

It is futile to demand answers from Malaysia as we are not in any position to supply the information as we do not have the capabilities of the global and regional military powers.

Malaysians must unite behind the government so that our leaders need not feel that they are alone shouldering this enormous burden.

  2. I am not following this story closely but I can’t help and ask who exactly are the people who were on board this flight? What was the cargo being taken along – like secret spying devices? This entire sad episode smells fishy.

  3. “Malaysian government ought to declare publicly that our national sovereignty and security have been jeopardized by the disappearance of MH 370 and that the relevant intelligence agencies have been tacitly complicit in the disappearance of MH370.”

    Indeed it should. We do not understand the “sheer stupidity of states” not to use “GOOD SENSE” and declare publicly when nefarious states carry out insane barbarity. Their SILENCE is complicit

    Come on, say it out loud and let the state criminals pay for their crimes and take the blame. Remember the world is much more cleverer and well informed than that “house negro’s” speech have you believe.

    Wise and show that you have what it takes or be a slave to zionised imperial mafia crusaders

  5. lets not talk about the unknown , lets not pull out our hair over unfathomable theories.
    lets just talk about facts……

    * malaysia refused to play ball with the asia pivot to isolate china,
    *rejected the tpp,
    *kl court indicted muricun war criminals,
    *last but not least, dr mahathir called fukus *no 1 terrarists*

    u could almost feel uncle sham straining at his leash over that one !

    now malaysia is in hot soup.

    2] malaysia, thailand are the most friendly countries to china in asean,
    now the thai pm yingluck is reeling from a possible civil war.

    while malaysia n china have fallen out.

    the potential of the wonder chip falling into china’s hand has been preempted.

    remember ian fleming’s theorom ?
    once is accident, twice is coincidence, three times…..enemy action !!

    cui bono ???

  6. malaysian defence minister hishammudi plea to chinese families
    *we’r one family, we’r all victims of this tragedy*

    hear hear,
    dont fall into the trap,
    someone out there is lmao !

  7. since no links are allowed,
    i can only ask u to do a search with key words
    Yoichi Shimatsu, mh370
    the most astute analysis so far.

  8. mh370
    cui bono ?
    who’s *chief investigator* ?

    in any civi court, no way the chief beneficiary of an unatural death would be appointed to investigate the case !
    but here’s its in one of the most bizzare air disaster of the century, intel outfits from those who stand to gain the most politically, are leading the probe ?
    see how does it works ?

    cia/mi6/fbi, what do we know about these lovely gents ?
    known *al qaeda* handlers, black ops, ff specialists !
    fabricating evidence is a standard tool of their trade !

    i cant list them all but one example suffice.

    framing china for a non *massacre* in tam,

    worse still, planting *evidence* to incriminate chinese indonesians as fifth columnists of an impending coup , sending millions of them to be chopped up like sacrificial lambs.

    *The army’s anxiety was increased by rumors, throughout 1965, that mainland China was smuggling arms to the PKI for an imminent revolt. Two weeks before Gestapu, a story to this effect also appeared in a Malaysian newspaper, citing Bangkok sources which relied in turn on Hong Kong sources.106 Such international untraceability is the stylistic hallmark of stories emanating in this period from what CIA insiders called their “mighty Wurlitzer,” the world-wide network of press “assets” through which the CIA, or sister agencies such as Britain’s MI-6, could plant unattributable disinformation*

    * On 5 October a “political adviser” at the British intelligence base in Singapore reported to the Foreign Office in London that: “we should not miss the present opportunity to use the situation to our advantage… I recommend that we should have no hesitation in doing what we can surreptitiously to blacken the PKI in the eyes of the army and the people of Indonesia”. The Foreign Office replied: “We
    certainly do not exclude any unattributable propaganda or psywar [psychological warfare] activities which would contribute to weakening the PKI permanently. We therefore agree with the [above] recommendation… Suitable propaganda themes might be… Chinese interference in particular arms shipments; PKI subverting Indonesia as agents of foreign communists”.*

    so now this bunch is in charge of the probe ?

    malaysian police chief
    *we may never know why plane disappeared*
    now why’d he sound so pessimistic , when the world’s top sleuths are on the case


  9. didnt i say some western *journos* seem to harbor a hidden agenda ?

    *Some irresponsible Western media have played a disgraceful role. They have published false news, stoked conflict, and even spread rumours.

    “These could provoke the frail spirits of the next of kin and damage the good relations between China and Malaysia. We strongly oppose this,” Huang was quoted as saying by news portal Malaysiakini today*

    link not provided

    from the outset, i sensed that this could be a multipurpose ff.
    *divide n conquer* appears to be one of its main aim.

    those western *journos* knew what they’r expected to do.

  10. just what pm najib needs right now innit ?

    *Last night’s kidnapping will likely fuel anger in China, whose citizens are still seething over Malaysia’s handling of the the MH370 crisis. The Boeing jetliner vanished without a trace of March 8 with 153 Chinese nationals on board.*

    u betcha !

    the pattern is so clear now only the blind would claim ignorance. [1]
    this is undeclared warfare babe, the malaysians has had enough, no point mincing words now !
    *Najib noted the abduction of two women, including a Chinese national, came as warm relations between China and Malaysia cooled over a missing Malaysian jet.

    He said the abduction could increase the tension between the two countries, but expressed confidence that it would not cause their ties to be weakened.

    There may be those who are attempting to drive a wedge between us and China. *

    u can say that again buddy. !
    thats my thought from day one of the mh370 saga.


    *killing of chinese tourists in pak strain sino pak relation.
    [cia’s ttp sought out n slain chinese tourists to…get this, avenge the fukus drone attacks !]
    *bloodbath in manila, where 8 hk tourists died in a *botched rescue mission*, further strain sino ph relation.
    *brutal murder of chinese sailors in mekong strain sino myanmar relation.
    [mind u, this case is unprecedented, pop right out of the blue, while the *china out,fukus in* [2] campaign is in full swing]

    *ph is upping the ante in the scs dispute.
    *indonesia , the hitherto neutral claimant, just changed stance n declared opposition to china’s position, right after the obama/hagel visit.
    *thailand, the most friendly country is in turmoil , yingluck’s rule is in peril.
    *malaysia, which rejected the obama/hagel admonition to join the anti chinese posse, got hit with a double whammy !
    najib might lose his post to the globalist candidate in the next election !

    u cant argue with math,
    here’s the first rule of probability theory

    ian fleming
    *once is accident, twice is coincidence, three times ?….enemy action !*


  11. Good job for the group. Hold it up for each yeara??s winner. This is a fantastic oppotunity for more advancement. Sure, receiving much better and much better is often the essential. Just like my pal says on the truth about ab muscles, he just keeps acquiring more powerful.

  12. I drop a comment when I like a article on a website or I have something to add to the discussion. Usually it’s caused by the fire communicated in the article I looked at. And after this article %BLOG_TITLE%. I was moved enough to drop a comment 😛 I do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind. Is it just me or do some of these comments look like they are left by brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are posting at additional social sites, I’d like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Would you list all of your communal pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?|

  13. I don’t think this flight ever existed. What we need to be looking into is what the US,Britain and Australia are really up to in the Indian Ocean

  14. Normally I do not read article on blogs, however I would like to say that this write-up very compelled me to take a look at and do it! Your writing style has been amazed me. Thank you, quite nice article.

  15. I really like your writing style, fantastic information, thanks for putting up :D. “God save me from my friends. I can protect myself from my enemies.” by Claude Louis Hector de Villars.

  17. Very interesting subject , thanks for posting . “Men who never get carried away should be.” by Malcolm Forbes.

  18. I’ve been browsing on-line more than three hours lately, yet I never found any fascinating article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the web might be a lot more helpful than ever before.

  19. Keep up the excellent piece of work, I read few blog posts on this web site and I think that your website is real interesting and has got lots of wonderful info.
