That is what I thought also, lotusfoot. That is one likely scenario. It is one idea that is making me leave the alien abduction theory, but until the black box is recovered, the alien abduction theory is still on the table, no matter how absurd it is.
My hunch is that Malaysia will try to claim anything found because they don't want anyone to know what happened. Malaysia already wouldn't release some information. I think the pilots were threatening to crash the plane If they didn't release a prisoner, forgot his name, but he was convicted of child molestation, word on the street and what they supposedly believed is that the guy was framed for political reasons and Malaysia refused so they crashed after running out of gas, that's just my theory.
I've wondered about that myself. It's out there in the middle of the ocean. Why where there 2 signals so far apart? There is nothing there it's just empty ocean so how can there be 2 signals at such a distance. Conspiracy!!! Doesn't make much sense at all.
