Comments on: Malaysia: Crisis management on a need-to-know basis http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2014/03/13/in-malaysia-is-more-information-really-better/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: h5mind http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2014/03/13/in-malaysia-is-more-information-really-better/#comment-84739 Mon, 17 Mar 2014 15:38:52 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=29189#comment-84739 Back to the crux- what happened to the plane and passengers? General Daud reported it had switched off it’s transponders once beyond Malaysian radar coverage, turned sharply off course to the southwest, and continued to fly another 4-5 hours. Shortly after dropping this nugget, he was forced to retract it.

The most viable destination is one never mentioned: Diego Garcia, the joint US/UK naval air base located off Malaysia, coincidentally in the same general direction the flight was last seen headed. Come to your own theory as to what happened from there, but the fact is the black boxes trigger automatically in case of accident, and that never happened. Mix in the documented reports of family members being about to ping and/or call passenger cell phones for days after the disappearance, and the entire story sounds much more like the work or one or more governments than of any private sector terrorist. “News is that which someone, somewhere does not want revealed. Everything else is advertising.”

I you recall, the first day the media was saying that once a plane is out of radar, they have to call in. Not true. Slowly we learn that even when the systems are “shut down”, we can still track it. I’m betting that we could actually tell them even more than we have but won’t for national security reasons.

Wrong priorities. Got nothing to do with causing panic.

You spent well over half your words about something that happened over 20 years ago just because you grew up there and did not even bother to dig into the reasons why Malaysia is ranked at 145! There is no correlation at all between these two incidents for the reasons you state.

“In light of the Chernobyl analogy, it is tempting to see the handling of the Malaysia Airlines flight as yet another case of a closed (eastern) society running up against the more democratic (Western) standards.” This is not even close to the reasons of why there is so little press freedom here and is just pure laziness on your part to make an effort to find out.

If you don’t want to work for your pay and just reminisce about you long lost childhood then please move on to another vocation and stop wasting our time.

If there was no heat signature on satellite for an exploding plane then it did not explode. If it is not there and it did not crash it has flown somewhere else. By releasing more info you can crowd source millions of people to search for the plane rather than simply running around in circles in denial of the obvious facts.
