after disabling other communications, Captain Zaharie Shah negotiated with the Malaysian government for the release of opposition politician Anwar Ibrahim over several hours. The negotiations failed, and the plane ultimately crashed when its fuel ran out.
A Taiwanese politician with a penchant for controversy has claimed Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 was hijacked by its crew to force the Malaysian government into freeing jail-bound opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim.
Chiu Yi, a former legislator of Taiwan's ruling Kuomintang, posted the dubious allegation on his Sina Weibo microblog page on Tuesday, shortly after Malaysian prime minister Najib Razak declared that satellite analysis concluded the Boeing 777-200, which vanished March 8 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, had crashed into the southern Indian Ocean, killing all 239 people on board.
WOW!...That's a take on it I hadn't heard before. It seems to hold merit if true...Way better that black holes and all the other goop thrown at the story since it began. Very Interesting!

This is what I was thinking as well.
In the scenario I was thinking, the pilot nose dived the plane into the ocean when the demands weren't met, when he finally knew the deal was not going through.
This plot seems to make the most sense yet.
Well they've been pushing the idea that the pilot was responsible for this because he allegedly had a simulator, really a game, in his house. They have been trying to tie this guys alleged actions to the guy who went to prison for a few weeks. I don't buy it. Sorry.

Which mainstream media? I've not heard anything on the news about this at all. Just stumbled across it today on a forum and thought I'd post it to see if anyone has heard about it. I don't claim it as truth, please reread my opening post.
“ALRIGHT, GOODNIGHT” – DOES MALAYSIA WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO FLIGHT MH-370?

On March 8, a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200ER departed from Kuala Lumpur with 227 passengers and 12 crew members. It departed at 12:41am (1441 GMT), and was due in Beijing at 6:30am (2230 GMT) that same day. It hasn’t been seen since. This report attempts to debunk some of the theories about that disappearance and make a new assertion about what might have befallen the passengers and crew of that ill-fated flight. Flight MH 370.
Conspiracy theories don’t hold water because they ignore certain things that have to happen in conjunction with those events in order for them to be correct. What all the theories about the disappearance of this plane leave out are the important aircraft systems that would react (or try to) in any mishap involving the plane. Here are a few.
The Cabin Emergency Depressurization Oxygen System. The “Rubber Mask Jungle” drops if the cabin pressure drops below a certain level – typically at 14,000 feet. The pilots can deploy the system manually or leave it set on automatic. But the pilots cannot turn it off.
