Day 43 Malaysian plane mystery: US military base on Diego Garcia atoll IS involved

Does anyone else smell a rat close by? This incident is beginning to stink of American involvement. Nothing like it has ever occurred in aviation history. Cell phone calls not able to be traced; no radar tracings; transponders turned off; no wreckage spotted; and a large plane with 239 people aboard vanishes without a trace. Enter the secret military base at the Diego Garcia atoll, which has a huge runway and is four hours flying time from Malaysia. Only government personal with a high security clearance work there; clearly visible are over a dozen B-52 aircraft on the 2014 satellite Google Map. With the tens of billions of dollars needed to build and maintain this facility, Diego Garcia must have its own dedicated satellite surveillance system that would show any aircraft, ships, or submarines getting even remotely close to this facility. However, the level of sophistication of its radar is classified and unverifiable. With the plane now missing for 43 days (1,000+ hours), the 'thinkables' have become unlikely and so the 'unthinkables' have become possibilities.

This is pure speculation NO LONGER, or so it would seem! Maldives island residents reported sighting of 'low flying jet' on the morning of the plane's disappearance that was finally reported on twelve days after the fact. The pilot of the missing plane had a home flight simulator, which was been reported twelve days later to contain the landing simulation program of the Diego Garcia runway along with four other runway approaches in the region. Whether any, all, or none of this information is true is still a matter of conjecture. What remains a fact is that not a trace of the Malaysian 777-200ER has been found. At his daily news briefing on 3-18-14, WH spokesperson Jay Carney has denied any involvement of the Diego Garcia facility with the disappearance of flight MH370.

Cops find five Indian Ocean practice runways in MH370 pilot’s simulator
March 18, 2014

“The simulation programmes are based on runways at the Male International Airport in Maldives, an airport owned by the United States (Diego Garcia), and three other runways in India and Sri Lanka, all have runway lengths of 1,000 metres.

“We are not discounting the possibility that the plane landed on a runway that might not be heavily monitored, in addition to the theories that the plane landed on sea, in the hills, or in an open space,” the source was quoted as saying.

MH370: Pentagon has "indications" that the missing plane may be in the Indian Ocean
March 14, 2014

An official from the United States (US) revealed “indications” that Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight MH370 which went missing since March 8, may have crashed into an area where the Indian Ocean and the Andaman Sea merge and are sending the USS Kidd to the area to begin searching, reported ABC news.

The official, however told ABC News that they needed 24 hours before the ship could be deployed to the area.

US military base Diego Garcia [has an huge runway] is located at the Indian Ocean.

Not your average news correspondent (though these days, who knows).

(Funny how the Wikipedia article on him mentions the meth but not the rope.)

Went to drug rehab, and back on the air.

Did a report about business travel, where he was in the cockpit with Flight 370 First Officer. (In the cockpit? Isn't that supposed to be against the rules?)

If you wanted to get someone involved in something nefarious, who better than someone charged with a drug violation (not to mention a strange, compromising sex thing going on)? Get their charges dropped and their career back on track, and who knows what they might do for you? CNN is known to work directly with CIA infiltrators. Just sayin'.

Very weird story about this creepy Richard Quest guy.

Still no plane. Pinger sounds and the "take our word for it" satellite company, not to mention 24/7 CNN coverage. Other than that, nothing.

Kinky indeed: "...and a sex toy in his boot,..."

4-8-14- CNN finds it necessary to debunk DG as another CT (vid)

Jake Tapper lies, and how many times does he say "conspiracy theory?"

http://youtu.be/TqBTQvBl72M
youtube comment:
Tapper lies when he says that there is no connection to Diego Garcia. The flight simulator of the missing pilot had the approach to DG on it, so he could practice the approach & land there. The radar above DG is in geosynchronous orbit providing 24/7 minute-by-minute real time imaging of anything getting anywhere near this base, which is located on the equator. They know exactly where this plane came from and where it went to, but they remain silent. Why? 

"Takes us back to the grassy knoll" ...

... LOL.

Oh, you mean that United States Congress investigation (Church Committee) that determined that at least one shot was fired from the grassy knoll? The US government's conspiracy theory?

LOL.

It's always interesting how they intentionally misrepresent viewpoints that they want to "debunk."

People don't consider conspiracy theories because they want closure, they consider them because certain government employees have proven themselves untrustworthy, capable of dastardly deeds, and we know that Boeing has a remote control hijack device in their jets that MSM will never talk about.

I wonder when CNN ...

... is going to air that interview their #1 airline expert had with the First Officer of Flight 370, especially now that news is out that the F.O. made a cell phone call after the plane was diverted.

Oh, that's right, the answer is NEVER.

MSM is a joke, and CNN is the butt of the joke.

SteveMT's picture

That interview is just another one of those coincidences.

CNN buries the truth while they attack others who want to find the truth.
You are right about the interview that apparently never happened with the cropped picture that removed their reporter just leaving the co-pilot. CNN is about as low as the Indian Ocean goes. More on this "kinky" reporter named Richard Quest provided above by TommyPaine.

United States denies claims missing Flight MH370 landed at its military base on Diego Garcia
By Chris Richards Apr 12, 2014 01:25

A spokesman for the US embassy in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, insisted: "MH370 did not land in Diego Garcia."

The United States has flatly denied claims that missing Flight MH370 had landed at its military base on the remote island of Diego Garcia.

There have been rumors that the jetliner could have headed for the small coral atoll in the Indian Ocean after it veered off course while traveling between Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Beijing, China on March 8.

However, a spokesman for the US embassy in the Malaysian capital said there was no truth in this speculation.

He told Malaysia's Star newspaper by email: "There was no indication that MH370 flew anywhere near the Maldives or Diego Garcia.

"MH370 did not land in Diego Garcia.

Why? Besides the obvious, is more war coming again?

Documenting the image of this. Thanks.

Wild goose chase?

Seeing if they could pull it off? A month of chasing a box and pings that could be totally a fabricated chase. When they do find the "box", they have had a month to create the propaganda they want. Unless there are people who were actual eye witness to this event, the entire month of drama we have been watching could all be buying time for the perpetrators to complete their cover up and distraction going.

Captain says good night and signs out. Moments later, Captain to co-captain. "We seem to have lost control of the plane. It seems to be flying itself."

The most advanced weapon and semiconductor research on the planet being done by Freescale (formerly a division of Motorola) and part of the Carlyle Group (comprising one of the most sinister military industrial entities on the globe) has numerous high level people on this plane. Nighttime flight set up perfect to attempt the first electronic hijacking of a commercial flight, simply turning it into a remote controlled drone. Add the cloaking technology that has only become incredibly more sophisticated from the development of the SR-71 Blackbird and other stealth planes and it is entirely possible. Now nearly a month to fabricate whatever scenario whoever was responsible for this to guide their ultimate agenda.

Whatever happened, you can be assured governments will use it to take away from freedoms and ramp up security and control of the movement of people around the globe.

beephree

Well, I figured out how they COULD have pulled it off ...

... if it was a black ops (to steal the plane, cargo, and/or passenger(s)).

Search and Rescue are hearing sounds under water, so we still have to wait and see if the plane is down there. Of course, we should not accept a couple of seat cushions or claims of hearing sounds as proof. We will need to see the plane itself.

If they do find it, then obviously it went down as they say. Why it happened would be the next question.

But if they do not find the actual plane down there, then we have to consider either it is down there but they can't find it, or it is somewhere else.

Other than sounds, the ONLY evidence is the Inmarsat pings. The idea of theft and landing at Diego Garcia is not consistent with the data from Inmarsat. That is the main reason I have not bought into the Diego Garcia theory, so far (that, and the possibility of finding the plane under water still exists).

So, it got me to thinking: What if the Inmarsat data is fake? If we take away the Inmarsat data, what do we have? Nothing. We have some sounds underwater, but if that does not pan out, then we have NOTHING other than what Inmarsat says.

Now, I do not think the engineers at Inmarsat are faking anything. I do not think they are stupid and cannot do calculations. I think they have done their job as they should have. But what if the data they were given was faked before they got it?

Inmarsat has 10 satellites, one of which is over the Equator at 64 degrees east. This is the satellite that they tell us received the pings as Flight 370 flew.

They also have another satellite over the Equator at 15.5 degrees west, which is off the western coast of Africa.

http://www.inmarsat.com/about-us/our-satellites/our-coverage/

Inmarsat has spooky connections. It is partly owned by the Carlyle Group, and partly owned by Primera, which is also part owner of Freescale, which had several of its employees on board Flight 370.

Take a look at a map where these two satellites are. Compare Africa and the 15.5W satellite with the area in question (Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia, southern Indian Ocean.) and the 64E satellite location. Note also, the southern tip of South Africa is about the same latitude as the southern tip of Western Australia -- about where we are told the plane might have gone down.

It is possible that a black ops jet (a military or private 777 -- call it "Flight X") took off from somewhere around Somalia, Ethiopia, Kenya, or South Sudan (all places where the US military types can do whatever they want) and ran a flight mission that was very similar to what Inmarsat tells us Flight 370 ran, but landing in South Africa. The satellite at 15.5 degrees west would have picked up the pings.

When Flight 370 takes off, either the captain or a remote control black ops guy flies the plane to avoid radar as much as possible and lands it at Diego Garcia.

Then, the satellite data from Flight X could have been switched for the flight 370 data by a spook inside Inmarsat, so that the engineers at Inmarsat would have been working on data they thought was Flight 370, but was really Flight X.

Just thinking outside the box here. If they never find the plane, then all possibilities that fit the known facts have to be considered, and those "known facts" also have to be put under scrutiny.

Let's see if they find that plane.

Since We're Speculating;

How about this: The Boeing 777 plane did land safely in Diago Garcia, was stripped of whatever value it held and then was flown {By remote control} south out of land based radar coverage, and ditched in the areas now being searched. {Speculation only}

Chinese patrol ship detects 'ping' signal in Indian Ocean 4-5-14

The location of the pinging is "25 degrees south latitude and 101 degrees east longitude (marked) and is about 2,000 miles SE from Diego Garcia (British Indian Ocean Territory).

A Chinese patrol ship discovered a pulse signal with a frequency of 37.5 kHz while looking for the Malaysia Airlines (MAS) aircraft in the southern Indian Ocean on Saturday, state news agency Xinhua reported.

According to a pinger manufacturer, that is same frequency used for black boxes – the cockpit voice recorder and the flight data recorder.

“That is the standard beacon frequency,” Anish Patel, president of pinger manufacturer Dukane Seacom told CNN.

However the latest find has not been verified by the Joint Coordination Centre in Perth, who is coordinating the search operation for flight MH370 in the southern Indian Ocean.

I know this would be too easy BUT

When you look at the google maps at the airport there are all the planes together except one that is over in its own section by itself.

Here are the coordinates that you can enter into google maps then zoom in

google maps - this shows a single plane separated from the rest
7°18'03.2"S 72°23'55.4"E

bing maps - when searched on bing it only shows one plane at the airport

Another Theory On Flight 370.

http://rt.com/op-edge/lost-airliner-malaysia-nato-china-365/

Excerpt: "Former scientific adviser to the UK Home Office Dr. Sally Leivesley was quoted by London’s Sunday Express on March 16 as saying, “hackers could change the plane’s speed, altitude and direction by sending radio signals to its flight management system. It could then be landed or made to crash by remote control.” She floated the possibility that this could be the world’s first cyber-hijack."

The smoking gun for me is; "How quickly the mainstream media announced that flight 370 had ' crashed', without a shred of evidence."

Role of the Diego Garcia Military and Intelligence Base?

Malaysian Airlines Flight MH 370 vs. The 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami: The Role of the Diego Garcia Military and Intelligence Base?
By Prof Michel Chossudovsky
Global Research, March 31, 2014

The MH 370 Boeing 777 had advanced “emergency locator equipment” which was emitting signals, which should have facilitated its location. It was subsequently established that the MH 370 flight had gone Southbound towards the Indian Ocean.

Located in the Indian Ocean, the US Diego Garcia military and intelligence base –described by defense observers as the “best-kept secret in the navy”– has a gamut of advanced observation and detection equipment which should have facilitated the search of the Malaysian airlines plane.

But instead, the US military preferred to remain mum on the subject, as outlined by a carefully documented article by Matthias Chang.

According to Reuters (28th March, 2014, quoted by Matthias Chang):

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.

The US has a state of the art spy satellite system, with very precise capabilities of monitoring the earth’s surface, including moving objects. These technologies are part of the United States Space Surveillance Network. The Diego Garcia base “is one of only a handful of locations equipped with a Ground-based Electro-Optical Deep Space Surveillance system for tracking objects in deep space”. Given the levels of sophistication of these observation technologies, it is highly unlikely that the MH370 flight could have travelled unnoticed over a large span of the Indian Ocean.

A Few More Facts About Malaysia To Think About.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malaysia

Malaysia has never recognised Israel and has no diplomatic ties with it.[81] It has remained a strong supporter of the State of Palestine,[82] and has called for Israel to be taken to the International Criminal Court over the Gaza flotilla raid.[83] Malaysian peacekeeping forces are present in Lebanon[84] and have contributed to many other UN peacekeeping missions

Objects spotted in search for missing plane are dead jellyfish

http://www.breakingnews.ie/world/gbcwgbeymhgb/

It has been confirmed that orange objects floating in the water, suspected to be life vests from the missing Malaysia Airlines jet, are nothing more than dead jellyfish.

"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know Peace." - Jimi Hendrix

I still have a problem with the Diego Garcia theory ...

... for 2 reasons.

(1) The patsy story is not being pushed properly. If you're gonna do a black ops, you need a good patsy story. The 2 Iranians boarding on fake passports was a good hijack story. But it is not being pushed. Even the captain with his home flight sim is not being pushed. Maybe one of these stories will be pushed later, but you need a good patsy story.

(2) The Inmarsat data do not match up with a Diego Garcia involvement. Since that company has ties to questionable people, there is a possibility that the data is false, but for a black ops story to go forward, they would have to "undo" the story they have already told. They would somehow have to say they were wrong with the Doppler thing and maybe the plane did go north, after all.

It doesn't really add up.

Then again, the story unfolding (if we take it at face value) doesn't really add up, either.

Of course, if they actually find the plane in the ocean (not just a few seat cushions, but the actual aircraft under water), then the whole "hijacked to be loaded with a bad stuff later" story is out.

So, will the ocean searches turn up nothing? Will the Doppler/Inmarsat story change? Will the patsy story be pushed? Will Flight 370 suddenly "emerge" somewhere in the future and be used in an attack?

If the answers to all those are yes, then it is most likely a false flag/black ops operation. Otherwise, it is most likely not.

DG satellite info


Overview
The AFSCN consists of satellite control centers, tracking stations, and test facilities located around the world. Mission Control Centers are located at the Consolidated Space Operations Center (CSOC) at Schriever Air Force Base near Colorado Springs, Colorado, and Vandenburg Air Force Base, California. These centers are manned around the clock and are responsible for the command and control of their assigned satellite systems. The control centers are linked to remote tracking stations (RTS) around the world. Space vehicle checkout facilities are used to test launch vehicles and satellite platforms to ensure that the onboard systems operate within specifications. The remote tracking stations provide the link between the satellite being controlled and the control center. A similar relationship exists for dedicated networks. Remote tracking stations around the world are needed to maintain frequent communications with the satellite. Without RTSs, the control centers would only be able to contact a satellite when it came into the control center's view. Some satellites, especially those in geostationary orbit, never come within view of their control center. Each antenna at an RTS is referred to as a "side". Side A is normally a 60-foot-diameter (18 m) antenna which is best for TT&C of a geosynchronous satellite because of the distance to the satellite and the fact that the large antenna does not need to move quickly to maintain contact with the satellite. Side B is either a 46-foot- (14 m) or 33-foot-diameter (10 m) antenna. These are commonly used for TT&C of low earth orbit satellites which can move more quickly across the sky. These smaller antennas are more responsive and require less energy to control.

Current Remote Tracking Stations

Diego Garcia Station (DGS), Diego Garcia, BIOT; callsign REEF. Diego Garcia Tracking Station The Diego Garcia Tracking Station provides enhanced tracking of low earth orbiting satellites over the Indian Ocean area since its antenna is smaller than the one at the Indian Ocean Tracking Station.

That last part ...

... caught my attention. It says there is a Diego Garcia tracking station AND an Indian Ocean tracking station.

I looked it up and found on Wiki that there WAS an Indian Ocean tracking station, but it was closed down a long time ago. Now, all Indian Ocean tracking is done at Diego Garcia.

"Indian Ocean Station (IOS), Mahe Island, Seychelles; callsign INDI (closed in August 1996, after the Government of Seychelles attempted to "raise the rent" to more than $10 million/year). The Indian Ocean Tracking Station was located on the island of Mahe, the main island of the Seychelles archipeligo. It had one 60-foot antenna. Its location was ideal for communicating with geosynchronous satellites over the Indian Ocean. The station was also geographically suited for acquiring realtime or near-realtime data from passes over areas to the north. In 1980, due to political instabilities of the island, the main processing computers were removed and relocated to Sunnyvale. These computers communicated with the IOS downlink and tracking equipment via a wideband (DSCS) communications link. IOS has been supplanted by Diego Garcia RTS."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_Force_Satellite_Control_Ne...

Note that even back in 1996, these stations were capable of realtime tracking.
