Malaysian Airlines Hijacked Russian Intelligence

In News on April 16, 2014 at 19:24

Earlier the was information tha the US had the Plane hijacked and detonated an Atom Bomb.

 

The story had some good pointers on this.

 

Now there is fresh Intelligence inputs from Russian Intelligence that the Malaysian Airplane MH 370 was hijacked and is some where in Afghanistan,

 

probably in Kandahar.

 

The hostages are alive and the terrorists are expected to begin negotiations with China /US.

 

Malaysian Airlines

The MH370 Malaysian Airliner was Hijacked

 

Story:

 Russian newspaper, Moskovsky Komsomolets, said that the plane was hijacked and taken to Afghanistan and the passengers are now being held captive.

“Flight MH370 Malaysia Airlines missing on March 8 with 239 passengers was hijacked,” the Russian paper says. ”Pilots are not guilty; the plane was hijacked by unknown terrorists. We know that the name of the terrorist who gave instructions to pilots is ‘Hitch.’ The plane is in Afghanistan not far from Kandahar near the border with Pakistan.”

The report said that the passengers were divided into seven different groups and are living in huts with little food.

However, the Moskovsky Komsomolets report didn’t offer much in terms of sources–including names or even the identity of the intelligence agency it got its information from.

And Australian search teams are focusing on scouring the southern Indian Ocean for the plane and its black boxes. A submarine is now being used to look for the wreckage.

The alleged hijacking has not been confirmed by Malaysia. The Russian news report also said the terrorists are bargaining with Chinese and Malaysian officials, which also wasn’t confirmed by either country.”

Investigators have concluded that one or more people with significant flying experience hijacked the missing Malaysia Airlines jet, switched off communication devices and steered it off-course, a Malaysian government official involved in the investigation said on Saturday.

No motive has been established and no demands have been made known, and it is not yet clear where the plane was taken, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to brief the media. The official said that hijacking was no longer a theory.

“It is conclusive,” he said.

He said evidence that led to the conclusion were signs that the plane’s communications were switched off deliberately, data about the flight path and indications the plane was steered in a way to avoid detection by radar.

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak is expected to hold a press conference at 4.30pm AEDT.

The Boeing 777′s communication with the ground was severed a little less than one hour into the flight on March 8 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. Malaysian officials previously have said radar data suggest it may have turned back toward and crossed over the Malaysian peninsula after setting out on a north-eastern path toward the Chinese capital.

Missing Malaysian Jetliner Hijacked, Planned 2001

In News, terrorism on March 15, 2014 at 11:39

I have been suspicious of the whereabouts of the  Malaysian Jetliner on its way to Beijing.

For one NO SOS has been received by Ground Control.

2.Suspicious characters were traveling under false passports,

3.No debris was found in the possible area of Disaster .

Three theories that the plane could have encountered weather problems and disintegrated over the sea.

It was found that there was no Data from the Airlines to the Ground.

However the manufacturer received Data from the Engines of the Jetliner indicating that the plane was flying four hours after the plane was reported missing.

Now it is highly suspected that the plane has been hijacked after indication from  Malaysian Airlines that an experienced Pilot might have been flying the aircraft too low to avoid detention by the Radar.

 

 

 

 

PHOTO: Undated handout photo issued by the Metropolitan Police of Saajid Muhammad Badat, who was jailed for 13 years for trying to blow up an airliner.

 

 

A terror group from Malaysia plotted in the weeks after 9/11 to attack an airplane using explosives hidden in their shoes, according to a former terrorist who claimed to have supplied the bomb.

Saajid Badat, a British national and terrorist-turned-government witness, told a New York court Tuesday that he met the group of Malaysians, which included a pilot, in late 2001 and claimed they planned to blow open a plane’s cockpit door in order to carry out a 9/11-style hijacking.

 

AVIATION INVESTIGATORS trying to piece together what happened to the Malaysia Airlines jetliner have concluded that one of the pilots or someone else with flying experience hijacked the plane and steered it off course, according to a Malaysian government official.”

Indian Defense Ministry Forges Court Orders

In India on February 11, 2014 at 06:44

There are quite a few scams that go unnoticed, like the Thorium being stolen in Tamil Nadu.

Forging Court Orders

Defense Ministry Forges

Please read my post on this.

We also know of Adarsh Scam,2G,ISRO, Antrix Devas,CWG,Maharashtra Irrigation.Kalaignar TV,Mining scams in Goa Karnataka……. the list is endless, not to forget Westland Helicopter scam in which Sonia Gandhi was named in an Italian Court.

Most of us imagine that if the Court delivers a verdict or instructs the Government the issue is taken care of.

It is another matter that the Government through CBI may with draw, close the case or even the Courts fudging the issue.

But how many of us know that the Government, after receiving Court Orders does not follow the action advised by the Court but worse, changes Court’s orders?

Or that it simply ignores them merrily and goes ahead exactly in the opposite direction?

The Ministry o f Defense ,India , through its Secretary changes the Court’s Order to suit the Government!

And the black listed Firms for Corruption are not blacklisted but are on the active list of approved vendors?

Read this fraud perpetrated on the Defence Personnel.

Shashi Kant Sharma, erstwhile Defence Secretary (now CAG) is to stand in the Supreme Court on 13th February 2014 along with his other cronies from MaD in response to SC summons in wake of a 49-page contempt petition filed by the Retired Defence Officers Association (RDOA) in the apex court over non-implementation of the court’s September 2012 order – summons that came in wake of non-implementation of the SC order to MoD (read MaD) to pay the dues it owes to the former defence officers vide the said SC order. It is quite public by now that the ‘rank pay case’ was initially fought by Major Dhanapalan and later RODA too took up the case and moved the court. After years of legal battle, the SC had envisaged re-fixation of pay for all affected military officers for Rank Pay with effect from 1st January 1986 – the date of implementation of the Fourth Pay Commission. However, the MaD in its implementation order of the December 2012, based on the SC verdict, very mischievously changed it to “as on 1st January 1986” – while Shashi Kant Sharma was the Defence Secretary. The SC summons say, “You shall attend the court in person and shall continue to attend the court on all days thereafter to which the case against you stands adjourned and until final orders are passed on the charge against you. Herein fail not.”

Whether Shashi Kant Sharma will be present in SC on 13th February or feign a heart attack like Musharraf is not known but what he and his MaD cronies symbolize is the essence of the MaD Club’s contempt to those in uniform plus those who have hung up their boots. This is also the reason why they have been stonewalling all attempts to rectify the politico-military disconnect. There was talk of rewarding Sharma’s services to the mafia in breaking the institutional integrity of the military and concert with Goolam Vahanvati, the Attorney General. While the latter got an extended tenure, this can hardly be the only reason for Sharma to be appointed CAG anyway. The surprising part is that despite willfully committing contempt of the SC order with respect to the rank pay case and the fact that the contempt notice was sent when Sharma was still the Defence Secretary, he was still appointed to the high constitutional post of CAG. So the services that Sharma rendered to the ‘supreme mafia’ must have been of very exceptional order indeed. The real reasons perhaps will never been known but maybe one of the reason could be that Sharma happened to be the DG (Acquisition) of MoD when the Augusta Westland Helicopter deal was signed in 2010. Now it quite logical that it is the DG (Acquisition) who signs papers, negotiates the cuts and decides who gets what including the delivery mode. So when India has already paid 45 percent of the deal value, it is no way the deal would have been signed without the ‘cuts’ on the total deal (100 percent) having been delivered at required destinations. So, no one is fooled by the amount mentioned with respect to the Tyagi brothers which is small pocket change. Then, the Augusta Westland helicopter scam is a recent case. Shashi Kant Sharma was in the MaD club for over a decade. So, his ‘exceptional services’ would have gone way beyond the above two issues when so many more major defence acquisitions were made.

The Augusta Westland deal has been cancelled and probably one odd guy will be asked to return his / her cut that will be quietly made known to the environment, like it happened when the Eurocopter deal was cancelled and just one fellow was asked to return a few million Euros but then immediately given solid immunity by moving him as Governor. So in the Augusta Westland helicopter deal too, the balance will retain the moolah as part of future investment that is adjustable at the international arms industry level. And yes, the probe agencies would not dare to question top bureaucrats like Defence Secretary without government approval but then who do you think constitutes the ‘supreme mafia’? If you still are wondering then perhaps you need to read Gen. VK Singh’s autobiography that tells you that the corruption trail from MoD goes right up to the PMO. You would probably dub it a flight of fancy especially since we have such a clean Defence Minster but then you get wondering if the reported losses in crores of Air India includes the Rs 28 crores paid to the Defence Minister’s spouse by AAI for four of her paintings to be put up at civil airports. The appointment of CAG is arbitrary by the government, whereas the selection should be through a committee / collegiums constituted for the purpose. Then what about the Defence Minister’s penchant to ban firms at the drop of a hat and pray what is the criteria for lifting the blacklisting? Who does the inquiry and examination? Since it is all in-house you can well assume what the main criteria would be? This was a classic query with regard to the 155mm gun displayed at DEFEXPO 14 by Denel, a firm till recently blacklisted. Look at the manner in which the procurement of the Barak anti-air systems approved in 1997 for our Navy was kept in abeyance for several years.

Historically, the foundation of MaD can be traced to the Nehru’s disdain for the military and Krishna Menon, his blue-eyed Defence Minister who masterminded the first defence scam of independent India (Jeep Scandal), brought the country to shame in 1962 by ignoring basic military equipping, and yet ended up with a road in the heart of New Delhi Krishna Menon Marg) replete with his bust installed on a pedestal and an annual garlanding ceremony.

Worst Journalists of India

In India, Media on February 4, 2014 at 11:50

There is a report on the Worst Journalists of India, 2014.

I am posting excerpts below.

Mean while,one should remember Media is also a part of the Society in which we live.

Just as they used to show in films about Judges  as the ones beyond Human failings of corruption,which is not a fact as we know at least now, we , unfortunately still believe that the Journalists are as pure as driven snow and are beyond corruption and partisan views.

The fact is they are so , so are we.

Burkha Dutt formerly (9/!) of NDTV

Burkha Dutt

Under the circumstances, I do not follow or listen to one Journalist or another.

I watch all of them, independently verify stories from different sources and arrive at a conclusion on my own.

The perception that some are worst or good is a  subjective .

Let me leave it at that.

But to expect some journalist to be of the standard of say GK.Reddy, even he was biased, is too much to expect especially after Rai tapes implicating Burkha Dutt, Vir Sanghvi, (Check for audio under Radia Tapes)

However I have a few impressions of some Journalists.

Arnab Goswamy, though he is overly aggressive, forms opinions for himself , wants others merely to endorse him , by and large is as independent as The channel allows him.

Karan Thapar,Arrasive to the point of repugnancy, yet he makes the people whom he interviews squirm and generally make an ass of themselves.

In the process, in both these Journalists cases, the people spill the beans.

That’s it for me.

Now to the worst Journalist of the year 2014.

You would find most of them to be tainted.

10. S. Varadarajan (New entrant)
Till recently S. Varadarajan or “Varadabhai” as I fondly call him, was the editor of ‘The Hindu’ which is famous for its anti-Hindu articles. Lately, Varadabhai is a TV panellist who helps to continue pounding the redundant theory that Modi abetted the 2002 riots. He came out strongly in support of Rahul Gandhi’s bogus allegations on January 27 with Arnab Goswami. Incidentally, RG stated journalists told him Gujarat govt was involved in the riots. I guess RG just missed naming Varadabhai directly. Peddling opinions as news articles was one of the reasons the anti-Hindu claimed he was sacked from the newspaper.  The most hilarious article carried in the The Hindu under Varadabhai was one which more or less claimed the “masculine pose” by Swami Vivekananda was one of the causes of rapes in India. So if Varadabhai ever strikes that pose I don’t want to venture a guess on what’s on his mind.
9. Kumar Ketkar (9)
KK stays where he was last time. He retains his old habits of hate-RSS, hate-Hindutva and anything remotely connected with BJP. Of course, most would remember he’s also a former speech writer for Congress. Lately, he’s an “acting” defence lawyer for the AAP party. Following the anarchic acts of Arvind Kejriwal & Co. outside Rail Bhawan in January 2014 Ketkar quickly defended them by telling CNN-IBN India has always been anarchic. He recalled events like the Ayodhya movement to defend Kejriwal’s stupidity. KK has a rare distinction though. He’s one of those media heroes who has been provided police protection following police complaints and threats for abusing a certain caste in Maharashtra. And that contempt is because he hated a certain politician. There’s also a case relating to defamatory articlesagainst the RSS and also abusing judiciary. It’s unlikely the man will change. A hate-filled heart remains the same.
8. Nikhil Wagle (New entrant)
Frankly, this media moron is in the bad news not so much for journalism but for his filthy tweets and some allegations by one Nitin Rane. I haven’t watched him on IBN Lokmat nor have I had the misfortune to read anything he may have ever written. Like some others in this list he is most known for peddling of untruths. His most stupid outburst was against the middle class people. Hetweeted in March 2012: I am surprised by the low IQ of middle class in this country. Their understanding of politics is so dismal that they vote BJP. God save! In another tweet he brazenly claims Not a single PM of India has defended communal riots directly or indirectly. If @narendramodi dreams to become PM he should know this! Of course, this Congress crony apparently backs what Rajiv Gandhi said justifying killing of Sikhs with a great tree falling. While Wagle often screams about corruption, readers and voters are quite aware of his bosses being alleged to be involved in the Coal scam. I don’t see any reason why Wagle why will ever move out of this list.
7. Nidhi Razdan (10)
The “Larger picture” has made progress and has gone up the list. If she is angling for a permanent spot among India’s worst then she’s doing just the right things. With a permanent scowl on her face and permanent contempt for some panellists, her show called “Left, right, centre” is nothing more than filler on NDTV. Sort of bench-warming for passing the “buck”. Nidhi delivered one of the most shameful episodes on Indian TV in her mindless rant against a British MP for inviting Narendra Modi to speak in the British parliament. She even claimed she had the right to “question” SC judgements. If you watch the video of that shameless spectacle Nidhi mentions “controversial/controversy” as many times as Rahul Gandhi mentions empowerment or systems in his speeches. A thorough disgrace to journalism.
6. Karan Thapar (6)
India’s only “bow-tie” journalist (he often reminds me of thebow-tie killer). He has earned the nickname ‘The Tool’ after infamously ridiculing PA Sangma, the presidential candidate, of being a tool in the hands of some political parties. His standard pose is the dangerous “masculine” pose that The Hindu warns us of as the cause of rapes. Often also called a Paki-Tool, KT sort of proved it when he was handed a quote of Nawaz Sharif about friendship with India. This quote was planted by the Pak news agencies after Sharif became PM and KT grandly discussed the “hand of friendship” on his show. It just turned out the statement was made by Sharif to none other than KT earlier (before Sharif became PM again) and the Pakis made KT a “useful idiot” to peddle that old statement in the midst of LOC violations. The other thing KT is fond of is making others (like Sibal, Jaitley) sit in his chair and play Devil’s Advocate and pay him compliments. His 2007 statement hoping for a “sudden removal of Modi” may hold more interest now in many quarters.
5. Rajdeep Sardesai (3)
If Rajdeep has fallen one place it’s only because a bigger disgrace has made a grand debut in this list. “Point taken, fair enough” is now the standard defence RS offers when zapped by a panellist (much like Nidhi’s “larger picture” diversion). From defending Robert Vadra and the Gandhis, RS is now seen as grand campaigner for the AAP party. The number of interviews and promotions of Arvind Kejriwal on CNN-IBN and the whole IBN group would stand as proof. His most famous event in the past two years would be the incompetent interview with Modi on the bus floor. Modi even, deliberately or inadvertently, called him “Sar-ka-dard-esai”. Under RS the IBN group has hit rock bottom with many employees being sacked and the channel hitting new lows in TRP. Quite unfortunate considering CNN-IBN does have some of the best journalists on TV. Rajdeep’s judgement and prudence can be measured by the fact that most of his IOTY nominees have ended up as disasters. If the “top” is bad then no number of good journalists can shore up a failing channel.

KT: So in other words you buckled under media pressure?

JJ: No, not at all. It was misunderstood by many people. It was not an anti-conversion law, it was an anti forcible conversion law.

KT: But it was misunderstood for almost two years. You could have repealed it earlier, you didn’t. You only repealed it after you failed to win seats.

JJ: It has nothing to do with that. If you insist on giving this interpretation I can’t help it.

KT: What about the…

JJ: (Intervenes) As to why the media is biased, that is because I am a self-made woman. Politics has for long been a male bastion. Mrs. Indira Gandhi changed all that, but still you must remember that Mrs. Indira Gandhi had all the inbuilt advantages. She had the advantage of being born in the…

KT: (Intervenes) You’re saying that media picks on you?

JJ: I do think so.

KT: Because you are a woman?

JJ: You are not allowing me to finish anything I want to say.

KT: No, is it because you are a woman?
