On 8 March 2014, the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200ER operating the flight disappeared with 227 passengers of 15 nationalities and 12 crew members on board, following its last contact with air traffic control less than an hour after take-off.
A joint search-and-rescue effort covering an area of 27,000 sq mi (70,000 km2) in the busy Strait of Malacca and the South China Sea is being conducted by more than 12 countries. Vietnam briefly reduced its efforts on 11 March, but the search area continued to expand and searchers began to look for evidence on land. On 12 March, authorities also began to search the Andaman Sea, north of the Strait of Malacca, and the Malaysian government requested help from India to search in the area.
Stratfor VP of Intelligence Fred Burton examines the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 and the steps investigators take when looking at plane disaster cases.
On 11 March, it was reported that military radar indicated the aircraft turned west and continued flying for 70 minutes before disappearing near Pulau Perak; it “changed course after Kota Bharu and took a lower altitude.
Inspite of the intensive international search and rescue mission to find flight MH370 including authorities from 11 countries no one has yet been able to zero-in the exact location of the crash.
The plane just magically disappeared. But invisible doesn’t imply inaudible.
On 11th March eight villagers from Marang lodged police reports claiming that they had heard a loud noise last Saturday coming from the direction of Pulau Kapas and believed it was linked to the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight on that day.
All of them, from Kampung Pantai Seberang Marang, made the reports at the Marang district police headquarters at about 10.30am. One of them, Alias Salleh, 36, said he and seven fellow villagers were seated on a bench about 400 metres from the Marang beach at 1.20am when they heard the noise, which sounded like the fan of a jet engine.
“The loud and frightening noise came from the north-east of Pulau Kapas and we ran in that direction to find out the cause. We looked around the Rhu Muda beach, but did not see anything unusual,” said the lorry driver.
Replying to a question, Alias said they lodged the police report so that it would be of help to the authorities who were trying to locate the missing MAS aircraft.
Another villager, Mohd Yusri Mohd Yusof, 34, said when he heard the strange noise, he thought a tsunami was about to strike.
“My friends and I heard the ringing noise for about two minutes. I decided to lodge the police report after seeing the media reports on the lost flight,” he said. – Bernama
Even Telegraph correspondent Tom Phillips reported the same.
On March 12 the Terengganu police confirmed having received a report on a loud explosion heard by local villagers in Marang last Saturday morning, the day the Beijing-bound Malaysia Airlines (MAS) MH370 went missing.
How can an entire Boeing 777-200ER vanish from military radars of several countries and become invisible to people – who can hear the noise of fans of it’s jet engines but cannot see it ?
Imagine a Boeing hovering over your head but you can’t see the damn thing !!!
Is some kind of advanced military technology being used ?
Do such technology exist ?
Electronic Warfare – Cloaking Technology
New electronic weapons allow jamming, blinding, deafening and more, so that a plane could possibly vanish from radar detection and security systems would not be activated. Basic radar Electronic_Counter_Measures Strategies used in Electronic Warfare (EW) are:
1) Radar Interference,
2) Target Modifications
3) Changing Electrical Properties of Air.
A U.S. intelligence assessment, described to The Daily Beast by current and former U.S. intelligence officials, concluded that any Israeli attack on hardened nuclear sites in Iran would go far beyond airstrikes from F-15 and F-16 fighter planes and likely include electronic warfare against Iran’s electric grid, Internet, cellphone network, and emergency frequencies for firemen and police officers.
For example, Israel has developed a weapon capable of mimicking a maintenance cellphone signal that commands a cell network to “sleep,” effectively stopping transmissions, officials confirmed. The Israelis also have jammers capable of creating interference within Iran’s emergency frequencies for first responders.
In a 2007 attack on a suspected nuclear site at al-Kibar, the Syrian military got a taste of this warfare when Israeli planes “spoofed” the country’s air-defense radars, at first making it appear that no jets were in the sky and then in an instant making the radar believe the sky was filled with hundreds of planes.
Last year, it was announced that new stealth technology makes airplanes invisible not only to radar, it also renders them hidden to the human eye as well — “just like an invisibility cloak in a Hollywood sci-fi thriller,”
China had just touted its work on a “cloaking” technology using a hexagonal array of glass-like panels to bend light around an object, obscuring it from view, as though hidden by an invisibility cloak. Experts confirmed that the technology was legit — and not unlike American and European projects from the past few years.
“The general public … might not hear about how far the U.S. has really come, because it is and should remain classified,” firearms expert Chris Sajnog, a former Navy SEAL, told FoxNews.com. “Other countries are still playing catch-up — but they’re closing the gap.”
The DailyMail offers a range of scenarios for what could have happened to the flight ?
One of the scenarios offered is that of a possible use of Electronic Warfare.
20 passengers on-board the flight were experts in this technology.
They belonged to a Austin, Texas-based company Freescale Semiconductors.
The 20 Freescale employees, among 239 people on flight MH370, were mostly engineers and other experts working to make the company’s chip facilities in Tianjin, China, and Kuala Lumpur more efficient, said Mitch Haws, vice president, global communications and investor relations.
“These were people with a lot of experience and technical background and they were very important people,” Haws said. “It’s definitely a loss for the company.”
In Malaysia, Freescale’s modern operations facility that manufactures and tests integrated circuits (IC) is based in Petaling Jaya.
Based on information obtained from Freescale’s website, the facility began operations in 1972 covering an eight hectare site and is specifically designed for the manufacturing and testing of microprocessors, digital signal processors and integrated radio frequency circuits.
It also owns Freescale RF which is involved in creating solutions for Aerospace and Defence listed below.

Every Connection Matters
In the 1960s, one of the U. S. space program‘s goals was to land a man on the moon and return him safely to Earth. In 1968, NASA began manned Apollo flights that led to the first lunar landing in July 1969. Apollo 11 was particularly significant for hundreds of employees involved in designing, testing and producing its electronics. A division of Motorola, which became Freescale Semiconductor, supplied thousands of semiconductor devices, ground-based tracking and checkout equipment, and 12 on-board tracking and communications units. An “up-data link” in the Apollo’s command module received signals from Earth to relay to other on-board systems. A transponder received and transmitted voice and television signals and scientific data.
In September 2006, Carlyle led a consortium, comprising Blackstone Group, Permira and TPG Capital, in the $17.6 billion takeover of Freescale Semiconductor. At the time of its announcement, Freescale would be the largest leveraged buyout of a technology company ever, surpassing the 2005 buyout of SunGard. The buyers were forced to pay an extra $800 million because KKR made a last minute bid as the original deal was about to be signed. Shortly after the deal closed in late 2006, cell phone sales at Motorola Corp., Freescale’s former corporate parent and a major customer, began dropping sharply. In addition, in the recession of 2008-2009, Freescale’s chip sales to automakers fell off, and the company came under great financial strain.
Freescale Semiconductor is a holdings company and is owned by 152 Institutional Holders.
The top among them are BLACKSTONE GROUP, CARLYLE GROUP, JPMORGAN CHASE, BLACKROCK ADVISORS & VANGUARD GROUP.
Freescale Semiconductor is just a part of the puzzle. To get the complete picture we’ll need to understand the workings of these different groups; as it is only when we lay all the pieces on the table will the entire picture emerge.
Freescale is a main contributor of chip technology for Curtiss Wright with their defense technology. Curtiss Wright is also a holdings company owned by the same BLACKROCK ADVISORS & VANGUARD GROUP.
Curtiss-Wright Controls unleashes performance of Freescale’s QorIQ™ P4080 device for military/aerospace applications
Throughout the 1930s, Curtiss-Wright designed and built aircraft for military, commercial, and private markets. But it was the Wright engine division and the longstanding relationship with the US military that would help the company through the difficult years of the Great Depression. In 1937, the company developed the P-36 fighter aircraft, resulting in the largest peacetime aircraft order ever given by the Army Air Corps. Curtiss-Wright also sold the P-36 abroad, where they were used in the early days of World War II.
The Blackstone Group
Freescale’s biggest institutional holder is The Blackstone Group.
The Blackstone Group, a private investment bank with offices in New York and London, was founded in 1985 by its Chairman, Peter G.Peterson, and its President and CEO, Stephen A. Schwarzman.
Blackstone chairman Peter G. Petersen is also Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and Chairman of the board of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). His partner Stephen A. Schwarzman is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).
Kissinger McLarty Associates, which is Henry Kissinger’s consulting firm has a “strategic alliance” with the Blackstone Group “which is designed to help provide financial advisory services to corporations seeking high-level strategic advice.”
One such Kissinger Associates’ strategic advice firm is APCO Worldwide which handles much more than just Public Relations for one of India’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi. More on it here APCO Worldwide – Orchestrating our Future.
Blackstone also ventured into other businesses, most notably investment management. In 1987 Blackstone entered into a 50–50 partnership with the founders of BlackRock, Larry Fink and Ralph Schlosstein.
On May 8, 2009, in the wake of the global financial crisis, BlackRock was commissioned to help the U.S. government evaluate its distressed assets, and was subsequently awarded a $130 billion contract to manage these assets. As of September 30, 2013, BlackRock had $4.096 trillion in assets under management.
The parent company Blackrock, LLC has been headed by the FED director, and CFR director. Blackrock is awarded contracts by the Federal Reserve and the US Treasury.
It is a combination of all these holding companies that together gave us 911.
911 Money Trail
In 1985, the Margaret Thatcher led British government, signed a long-term agreement with the Saudi Arabian monarchy, under which the British arms cartel, BAE Systems, provided fighter jets and other military equipment and services, in return for vast quantities of Saudi oil. The barter agreement, known as “Al-Yamamah” (the Arabic word for “the dove”) has remained in force up to the present day.
Under Al-Yamamah, a tightly interlocking consortium of Anglo-Dutch and Anglo-American cartels—including BAE, BP, Royal Dutch Shell, Lazard Bank, HSBC (formerly the British East India Company’s Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation created through Rothschild’s Colonization of India forcibly growing Opium in India and selling it to China), and the Carlyle Group—has amassed an estimated $80-100 billion in off-budget, hidden funds, which have been utilized for covert operations and gun-running on a global scale—totally outside the jurisdiction and oversight of any government. This massive offshore fund is at the center of the power of the Anglo-Dutch financial oligarchy, which has promoted globalization and perpetual war for the last three decades and longer.
Under the Al-Yamamah agreements, which have been perpetuated by every British government, Saudi Arabia has provided 600,000 barrels of crude oil to BAE every day since September 1985.
In 2002 Blair government shocked some people with the announcement that the Carlyle Group—the private equity fund tied tightly to the Bush family—was to be awarded a large stake in QinetiQ, the “public private partnership.”
On Feb. 2, 2003, less than a month before the Cheney-Blair-Bush invasion of Iraq, the Carlyle group paid £42.3 million for a 34% holding in QinetiQ. When a large block of QinetiQ stock shares was later put on the public market, the Carlyle Group got about an eight-fold return on its investment.
Prince Bandar used $750 million of his Al-Yamamah kickback to purchase shares in the Carlyle Group private equity fund. As of 2007, that investment was worth nearly $4 billion.
Prince Bandar’s 2006 semi-authorized biography, The Prince—The Secret Story of the World’s Most Intriguing Royal, by his longtime British friend William Simpson, described the “unique” features of the Al-Yamamah barter deal in stunningly blunt language.
Now the real question is —
What has some U.S. military and intelligence officials deeply disturbed, however, is the question of whether some of the Al-Yamamah money got into the hands of the 9/11 hijackers—and whether that was the result of a terrible oversight, or something more sinister.
The two Saudi intelligence officers, Osama Basnan and Omar al-Bayoumi, received between $51,000 and $73,000 from Bandar and his wife, Princess Haifa, beginning in December 1999. A significant portion of those funds went to Alhazmi and Almihdar, to set them up in an apartment, and enroll them in flight school. For a short period of time, prior to the 9/11 attacks, Saudi intelligence agents Basnan and al-Bayoumi lived in the same San Diego, Calif. Apartment complex, Parkwood Apartments, as the two hijackers.
Former Sen. Bob Graham (D-Fla.), who chaired the Senate Intelligence Committee at the time of the 9/11 investigation, has assailed the FBI for failing to fully pursue the Saudi-9/11 money trail. Both he and co-chair Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) bitterly complained that the FBI would not allow committee investigators to question the FBI agents who had conducted the original interviews with Basnan and al-Bayoumi, shortly after 9/11.
The San Diego apartment where 9/11 hijackers Alhazmi and Almihdhar lived, was rented by an FBI informant, who received a reported $3,500 per month from the Bureau for keeping tabs on the local Muslim community, according to one U.S. intelligence source. The fact that two of the 9/11 hijackers lived under the same roof as an FBI snitch is still a source of great internal turmoil at the FBI.
Behind the 9/11 attacks was the hand of the British Empire, working through allied Saudi factions. In effect, 9/11 was the work of the “BAE Al-Yamamah” Anglo-Saudi imperial apparatus, which forms the core of the ongoing British Sykes-Picot control over the entire Persian Gulf and extended South-west Asia.
During the Twelfth Public Hearing of NATIONAL COMMISSION ON TERRORIST ATTACKS UPON THE UNITED STATES – that is the 9/11 Commission Hearings for June 17, 2004, Commissioner Lehman asked a question to General Richard Myers, USAF, Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Mr Lehman : What have you guys done to equip our Air Guard and other NORAD potentially assigned units with the training, with the rules of engagement and the hardware that gives them an option other than what we have now, which is just to destroy the aircraft and all its passengers?
Gen. Myers : I’m aware of at least one program which is classified, so we can either talk about it off-line or provide you the classified paper on it, there may be others, to do exactly that.
The program he was referring to was explained three years ago in 2001 by President George Bush.
Speaking to a crowd at Chicago O’Hare International Airport in September 2001, President Bush said the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks should not keep Americans from taking to the skies.
The president said new security measures would also dramatically increase the number of plainclothes federal marshals on airplanes, give $500 million to developing enhanced cockpit security and enable air traffic controllers to take over a distressed aircraft and land it by remote control.
That was a more than a decade ago.
BAE Systems readily acknowledge work on this kind of technology, such as the Adaptiv program, which aims to hide armored vehicles.
Adaptiv – a cloak of invisibility – BAE Systems
“The U.S. military is among many who have expressed interest in Adaptiv, which could be transferred to other platforms, such as ships and helicopters,” said Mike Sweeney, a spokesman for BAE.
BAE’s technology, similar to what the Chinese are now touting, deploys sheets of hexagonal “pixels” that can change temperature very rapidly. On-board cameras pick up the scenery and display it on the vehicle, which can allow a moving tank to match its surroundings.
Research is concentrated mainly on the infrared spectrum, a pressing concern for the Swedish government group funding the work. But BAE has combined its pixels with technologies that camouflage other parts of the electro-magnetic spectrum to provide all-round stealth.
HOW THE TECHNOLOGY WORKS
The high tech camouflage system uses modules, which look like cells in a honeycomb to cover the flanks of an armoured vehicle. The modules are made of elements that can be cooled or heated up very quickly as well as controlled individually, allowing different patterns to be created.
Adaptiv – a cloak of invisibility – BAE Systems
The vehicle essentially works like a chameleon, able to mimic its surroundings, or copy other objects such as trucks and cars that can be projected onto the panels from a detailed image bank. The vehicle is also able to signal peaceful intend through flashing text messages across its flank or by creating patterns that can easily be recognized by friendly forces.
BAE Systems is developing fourth generation radiation hardened computers for space applications through a license announced today for Power Architecture® processor cores from Freescale.
October 17, 2000 – BLACKSTONE ACQUIRES DEBT ON 7 WORLD TRADE CENTER
Blackstone Real Estate Advisors, the global real estate investment and management arm of The Blackstone Group, L.P., announced that it has purchased, from Teachers Insurance (another of Freescale’s holdings owner) and Annuity Association, the participating mortgage secured by 7 World Trade Center, a commercial office complex controlled by real estate developer Larry Silverstein”
Fifty days before 9/11
Larry Silverstein’s Silverstein Properties and Frank Lowy’s Westfield America secured a 99-year lease on World Trade Center Buildings One, Two, Four and Five. Silverstein already owned Building Seven.
Silverstein and Westfield America insured the WTC complex for $3.55 billion, but after the attacks of September 11 lodged a claim for $7.1 billion on the premise that each plane collision constituted a separate act of terrorism, doubling the payout.
Steve Galiotos, a Managing Director of The Blackstone Group, said, “Rising rental rates coupled with the lack of available office space in downtown Manhattan, made 7 World Trade Center an attractive investment opportunity for Blackstone. We are pleased to be a lender to Larry Silverstein, a seasoned real estate veteran, on one of Manhattan’s trophy properties.” 7 World Trade Center is the second investment made by Blackstone in a Silverstein office building. In April 2000, Blackstone formed a joint venture with Larry Silverstein and Walton Street Capital to own and operate the Equitable Building at 120 Broadway in downtown Manhattan.
Larry Silverstein stated that “Blackstone has one of the most exceptional track records in real estate investment and we are pleased to have them as a primary lender to a premier New York office property. Their commitment demonstrates the strength of this market.”
11 September 2001
New York, the WTC complex buildings 1, 2, and 7 along with Westfield Hotel were ruined in the 9/11 attacks, and consequently about $5.4 billion went into the pockets of Lowy and Silverstein.

As for the 4 passengers travelling on fake passports Malaysia’s civil aviation chief Azharuddin Abdul Rahman has repeatedly said that the two men who boarded the plane were NOT of ‘Asian appearance’.
To an extent that when asked by a reporter what they looked like ‘roughly'; Azharuddin Abdul Rahman replied: ‘Do you know of a footballer by the name of (Mario) Balotelli? He is an Italian. Do you know how he looks like?’
A reporter then asked, ‘Is he black?’
Azharuddin Abdul Rahman replied, ‘Yes’.
However various other authorities denied these and later pictures of the suspects with asian origin were released.
Interestingly, the pictures were doctored with same lower body (legs) for both the suspects.
Azharuddin is later reported saying, “There are some things that I can tell you and some things that I can’t” on being asked why the search includes northern parts of the Malacca Strait, on the opposite side of the Malay Peninsula and far west of the plane’s last known location.
The United States “kidnapped” the airliner as part of a conspiracy to “sabotage the relationship between Iran and China and Southeast Asia,” parliamentarian Hossein Naghavi Hosseini said, according to a translation by The New York Times.
“Documents published by the Western media about two Iranians getting on the plane without passports is psychological warfare,” he said Tuesday, according to The Times.
“Americans recruit some people for such kinds of operations so they can throw the blame on other countries, especially Muslim countries.”
The same day Hosseini made the farfetched statement that Interpol and Malaysian officials revealed the identities of the two Iranians traveling with false documents and all but ruled out they were terrorists.
