Pat Buchanan Convinced That Flight 370 Was A Hijacking That Broke Bad
The right-wing pundit doesn’t think it was a simple case of a plane falling into the ocean because of an onboard disaster. He spoke with radio host Steve Malzberg.
Either it’s a catastrophic event killed everyone on the plane, I think, or the pilot or someone got into the cabin and turned off those two transponders, and that suggests and act of terrorism. But every terrorist act that I can recall, whether its individual like Columbine, or a couple of people like Washington Navy Yard, they go out in a blaze of what they think is glory, it’s horrible. But why would pilots or anyone getting into the cabin hijack a plane and drive it off into the Indian Ocean where no one would find it, no one would know what they did. So my speculation, that’s what it is Steve, is that this was a Shanksville operation, this was a hijacking of the plane, and a determination, I think, what would they go for? The most spectacular thing they could go for with a plane flying out of Malaysia, if they didn’t go to Beijing and do something to the Chinese, would be to turn it around and fly it back into those towers, even bigger than the twin towers in Manhattan. Not just a mini 9/11, the Petrobas [sp?] Towers are taller than the New York World Trade Center.
Buchanan was likely referring to Petronas Towers, a twin tower complex in Malaysia.
