The Terrorism Angle

Acting Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein revealed on Saturday that the FBI, CIA, MI6 and the Chinese secret service are involved in the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 probe. Naturally, this has sparked terrorism theories. 

The Sydney Morning Herald in its Sunday report said crash investigators believe the disappearance of the plane and the decision to disable the communications system appear to have been deliberate. But they have found no evidence of a motive. Does terrorism need a motive? Or at least, one that is rational? Heck, no. 

US Senator Dianne Feinstein, the chairperson of the Senate Intelligence Committee was quoted as telling CNN’s Candy Crowley Sunday on the ‘State of the Union’ program that there was no evidence of terrorism with the missing jetliner. 

I don’t know. And I wouldn’t believe even when the Americans deny it. 

I just know that there must be a strong reason for intelligence agencies to become associated with this case. 

Of course, it reflects our impotence. We cannot seem to do anything on our own without fumbling. I suppose to the outside world, we don’t inspire much confidence. If you don’t believe me, ask China. 

MH370 is getting to be a puzzling conundrum.
