Do we have information regarding last travel route for the registration number ? Maybe can be tracked via flightrader 24 prior to date in question...I concur with your cyncism on the "objects" and figure with low south currents there be a larger debtis field than "2 objects" will see what pans out though just off their coast hence should have confirmation hour tops
I do trust AP's news reporting. If the Australians have actually found something, all the 'insider tips' about where the plane went are lies, and it really flew south and probably crashed with no one in control for hours, and all the insinuations were outright lies. The Australians have been searching at the far end of the range the plane could have flown, over countless miles of ocean with nowhere it could possibly land, so it must have been flying that way for pretty much the whole time after it lost contact.
What distresses me so much about this is how atrociously this event has been handled. Even on this forum which is naturally predisposed to see conspiracies and to think outside the box, a significant majority were gravitating towards the plane's disappearance being some terrible accident and not the result of hijacking, theft, terrorism, being shot down, etc etc etc. Yet all the reports and official announcements and sneaky leaks and everything seems to have been designed to make the public believe that something incomprehensible but deliberate was done to that plane by terrible people who mean only harm to us all. It's despicable.
Even if this does turn out to be the plane it does not mean it was not something done as a result of nefarious acts. Just means it went down in the ocean. Problem is, we may never know what actually happened. If it did go down here, the ocean is 2 miles deep or more in most areas so we would never recover the black box. Everyone could just continue to speculate forever.

At the end of the day, our wild imaginations have given the Taliban and terror organizations plenty of ideas. Ho hum.

I have no words...all I can do is nod my head in agreement. If the debris turns out to be _the_ wreckage of 370, then the past 13 days have been a witch hunt and character assassination.
...might as well include 'governments' in there, too.
