After previously writing about the speculation surrounding the missing Malaysian flight MH370, including allegations that the plane had been abducted by a UFO, the latest news circulating the internet is that an anonymous Malaysian official has come forward to confirm that the plane was hijacked.
The official remained anonymous claiming that he was not authorized to speak to the media about the situation. According to the official, either one of the pilots or someone else with flying experience hijacked the plane. However, it is not yet clear where the flight was hijacked or what the motive is.
According to the anonymous official, "it is conclusive" that the plane was indeed hijacked and this is not just a theory or speculation.
News has also emerged that 20 of the people on the plane worked for an electronic warfare and radar deence company, who in the days prior to the flight's disappearance, had just launched a new electronic warfare gadget for military radar systems.
The products were released to the American market by Freescale Semiconductor with shareholders including the Carlyle Group of private equity investors, whose advisers have included ex-US president, George Bush Sr and former British Prime Minister, John Major.
According to Mitch Haws, a spokesman for Freescale Semiconductor, "these were all people with a lot of experience and technical background and they were very important people. It’s definitely a loss for the company."
