It's been over three months since Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 disappeared without a trace. The plane and its passengers continue to elude search teams. Each week there is news of new searches or search areas, but they don't make the headlines for the most part, probably due to the fact that there has been no sighting of wreckage. We have long speculated that the plane was hijacked by the pilot, Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah. Now, it appears that Shah has become the "chief suspect" in Flight 370's disappearance, according to Malaysia authorities.
The New York Daily News reports:
The pilot of the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 airliner has been identified as the "chief suspect" in the plane's disappearance by Malaysian police after they found flight simulator evidence at his home.
Investigators discovered that Capt. Zaharie Ahmad Shah had programmed a flight simulator at home to practice a flight far out at sea in the Indian Ocean and landing on an island with a short runway.
These were deleted but recovered by investigators.
Perhaps the House Oversight Committee could get these investigators to take a look at IRS computers, but I digress.
After extensive intelligence checks on all of the other 238 people on the flight and 170 interviews, Shah looks to be the most likely perpetrator of the plane's disappearance.
According to the Independent, "The police probe has also revealed that the 53-year-old captain was unique among those on board the flight for having no recorded commitments, either socially or for work, to take place after the date of the MH370 journey."
Apparently, this was not how Shah normally conducted himself, as he was considered "an outgoing individual" and was in stark contrast to the co-pilot, Fariq Hamid, as well as the rest of the flight crew.
What is not being reported in the media is that Shah was a "fanatical" supporter of Anwar Ibrahim, a man who, according to Pamela Geller, has "many known ties to the global U.S Muslim Brotherhood, including helping to found the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), where he currently serves as a director, serving as a trustee for the World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY) during the 1970′s and early 1980′s, and appearances at numerous Brotherhood-linked conferences."
"In 2011, he was a participant in the 2011 U.S.-Islamic World Forum, held in the US for the first time and which included a large number of individuals tied to the Global Muslim Brotherhood, as well as their supporters," according to Geller.
Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch adds, "Anwar Ibrahim's IIIT was included in a lawsuit by victims of 9/11 seeking damages from organizations linked to 'rendering material support to radical Islamism.' In 2003, US government prosecutors 'submitted court documents detailing financial support from the IIIT for convicted Palestinian Islamic Jihad fundraiser Sami al-Arian.' They also found that Taha Jaber al-Alwani, the president of IIIT had once stated via a fatwa that 'jihad is the only way to liberate Palestine.' A US Customs official said that the government is also looking into the possibility that IIIT was involved in 'terrorism-related money laundering activities.'"
Early on, a Malaysian Government official stated that the "plane was hijacked." The Malaysian Prime Minister has even come out accusing the Central Intelligence Agency and Boeing of being complicit in the plane's disappearance.
In May, it was determined that Flight 370's voice recording had been edited.
An arrest of 11 Islamic terrorists also continued to fuel the speculation that the plane was hijacked in order to be used at a later time, rather than the notion that it crashed.
Various other stories were reported that one passenger had been able to send a message from his cell phone from a military base in the Indian Ocean and that his girlfriend alleged that she was told the plane was intact, had a military escort and those onboard were still alive.
The search in the Indian Ocean continues, as recovery crews are now heading back to the first spot where they believe the plane to have crashed, even though there have been eyewitnesses that claim they saw a jumbo jet on March 8 headed toward Diego Garcia.
It is my opinion that Flight 370 will not be found in the water. Based on my interview with US Navy and commercial pilot Kent Thelen, the claims of picking up a beacon, but not being able to localize it, is highly unlikely.
The theories that the plane will again reappear abound, being used as either a flying bomb or a delivery system for an EMP. For now, at least officials have narrowed their investigation down to one man, the pilot.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
