Investigators still haven't found, much less figured out what happened to a Malaysia Airlines passenger jet that seems to have vanished on Friday. But that didn't stop media mogul Rupert Murdoch from tweeting what the incident "confirms" about "jihadists" and offering some unsolicited advice for how the U.S. should respond.
Murdoch tweeted this yesterday:
This from the man who heads up a media empire of news outlets. But who needs reporters when you've got Murdoch's musings? Or did he hack into someone's voice mail?
I highly recommend the tweeted responses to Murdoch's "confirmation." They are at least as enlightening as his original tweet!
Ruthless needs to go.

From the info we have, I don’t see how it could have been an Egyptair or Silk AIr type pilot suicide situation since the plane apparently just suddenly disappeared from all contact, transponder and radar, at 35,000 feet.
The radar status is very unclear as a result of crappy reporting, but if there was radar contact, the radar would have followed the plane down to whatever the limit is before losing it, and it didn’t. Same with the transponder, etc. It appears to all have just quit, poof, simultaneously at 35,000 feet. It sure does appear as if something blew this plane to pieces in mid-air, and unless it was another one of those fuel tank explosions, which seems unlikely, there isn’t anything else that could have caused it other than a bomb.
Of course, the reporting may be incomplete and/or wrong, but I can’t for the life of me come up with any other scenario based on what’s been reported so far.
One of them seemed to think that pilot suicide was a real possibility to be considered as well.
But if it were a Bojinka-style test, they would not announce it. I rather lean towards the Bojinka model, if that’s what this was, and it’s hard to imagine any other scenario than a bomb for the few facts we know in this case.
If the intention was, as in Bojinka, a test prior to a huge economic hit as a result of planes starting to blow up in midair and people stopped flying, there’d be no need at all to announce who dunnit.
A fair number of these people are now nihilists looking to inflict as much damage on their perceived enemies as they can just because, not people hoping to make a political point to somehow influence policy.
Part of a terrorist attack, especially involving an airplane, is SOMEONE has to claim credit. So far, if any terrorist organization has taken credit, the media is sitting on it. As long as no one takes credit for the incident, there’s nothing to gain from the terrorist aspect.
The other possibility is that it’s a “trial run” ala Bojinka.
He’s of course a total fool to assert it as if it were established fact, but it’s not loony tunes as a theory.

And who needs actual investigation when you’ve got innuendo — especially on Fox . . .
