File this under: Things that make you go… Oh Shit…


Warning: this is 100 percent pure worst possible case imaginably speculation.

Now that Malaysia Flight MH370 is fading from everyone’s (except those who have family on that aircraft) mind. It is time to look at possible crazy tin-foil hat conspiracy theories that involve other current events. First, let’s look at the rumors coming out of Britain/Russia regarding MH370.

MH370 ‘hijacked and in Afghanistan’: Russian intelligence source claims all passengers and crew are alive but held hostage

A Russian newspaper has claimed that Flight MH370 was hijacked by “unknown terrorists” and flown to Afghanistan, where the crew and passengers are now being held hostage.

The extraordinary comments, attributed to a Russian intelligence source, appeared in the Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper.

The source told the paper: “Flight MH370 Malaysia Airlines missing on March 8 with 239 passengers was hijacked.

“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.”

This claim is the latest in a growing number of conspiracy theories over what could have happened to the missing jet. Here is our round up of the top 13 conspiracy theories so far.

According to The Daily Star, Moskovsky Komsomolets also claims the passengers have been divided into seven groups and are living in mud huts with almost no food.

Twenty Asian passengers were said to have been smuggled into a bunker in Pakistan

So, according to this rumor, a well financed, large and extremely well organized and disciplined terrorist organization now has possession of a Boeing 777-200ER commercial passenger aircraft with a range of 5,235 to 9,380 nautical miles (9,695 to 17,372 km). Moreover, the terrorist organization in question has the sophisticated knowledge and tactical ability to fly said aircraft through multiple layers of controlled airspace.

Let us depart for a moment from this terrorist organization to cast our gaze on another well financed, large and extremely well organized and disciplined terrorist organization.


Video: Did we miss the al-Qaeda convention?

Did the US recently miss a golden opportunity to take out a large number of al-Qaeda leaders, including the top lieutenant of Ayman al-Zawahiri and chief of the network’s most virulent subsidiary in Yemen? AQAP recently held a large meeting somewhere in south Yemen despite US drone warfare targeting the network in that region, and published the video on jihadi websites to emphasize their success. In the tape, AQAP leader Nasir al-Wuhayshi pledged to the terrorist leaders gathered there that he wants to attack the US soon:

A new video shows what looks like the largest and most dangerous gathering of al Qaeda in years. And the CIA and the Pentagon either didn’t know about it or couldn’t get a drone there in time to strike.

U.S. officials won’t comment on that, but every frame of the video is now being analyzed by the United States.

In the middle of the clip, the man known as al Qaeda’s crown prince, Nasir al-Wuhayshi, appears brazenly out in the open, greeting followers in Yemen. Al-Wuhayshi, the No. 2 leader of al Qaeda globally and the head of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, has said he wants to attack the United States. But in the video, he looks unconcerned that he could be hit by an American drone.

The video started appearing on jihadist websites recently, drawing the attention of U.S. officials and global terrorism experts. U.S. officials say they believe it’s authentic.

“This is quite an extraordinary video,” Paul Cruickshank, CNN terrorism analyst, said.

Did the US know about this ahead of time? If they did, they must have either had difficulty arranging the logistics of an attack — or perhaps had other assets in place for other reasons. It can’t be that we didn’t understand the value of the target, though. The Wall Street Journal recalls that Wuhayshi was one of the reasons the US closed a slew of embassies last summer:

Concerns last summer about a plot, discovered in part through intercepts of communications between Mr. Wuhayshi and al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, prompted the U.S. to temporarily close its embassy in Yemen and 18 other countries.

U.S. officials have been particularly concerned about the threat posed by the Yemen-based affiliate’s creative bomb-maker, Ibrahim al-Asiri, who built the device used in the botched 2009 effort to bring down a Detroit-bound airliner among other plots.

Raise your hand if you see anything disturbing about this event? No? here, let me straighten my tin-foil hat and sharpen my conspiracy theory pencil, while I point something out.

U.S. officials have been particularly concerned about the threat posed by the Yemen-based affiliate’s creative bomb-maker, Ibrahim al-Asiri, who built the device used in the botched 2009 effort to bring down a Detroit-bound airliner among other plots.

If at once you fail to succeed, try try again… So, according to this rumor, a well financed, large and extremely well organized and disciplined terrorist organization now has possession of a Boeing 777-200ER commercial passenger aircraft with a range of 5,235 to 9,380 nautical miles (9,695 to 17,372 km). Moreover, the terrorist organization in question has the sophisticated knowledge and tactical ability to fly said aircraft through multiple layers of controlled airspace. Try try again…

Video Shows Large Meeting of Al-Qaeda Leaders Openly Meeting In Yemen, Vow To “Eliminate The Cross … The Bearer of The Cross Is America”…

The video shows al-Wuhayshi addressing more than 100 fighters somewhere within Yemen, Cruickshank said, a restive nation on the southwestern portion of the Arabian Peninsula. The al Qaeda leader, he said, is “taking a big risk in doing this.”

But he doesn’t mince words about his mission.

In a speech to the group, al-Wuhayshi makes it clear that he’s going after the United States, saying “We must eliminate the cross. … The bearer of the cross is America!

So, tin-foil hat conspiracy theory time has arrived. A terrorist organization capable of bringing together 100 or more of the worlds most dangerous and prominent terrorists organizes and pulls off a clandestine meeting that none of the worlds intelligence agencies know about until after the fact. This shortly after a Malaysian 777-200ER disappears, presumable crashing into the ocean somewhere, though no wreckage of it has to date been found. Russian newspapers (clearly to distract from Putin’s actions in the Ukraine) make the assertion that the passenger are all alive and being held hostage near the Pakistan Afghanistan border. Suggesting that the Malaysian 777-200ER is still intact and fully functional.

Nope, nothing to see here, move along…
