The body of an Australian passenger on Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was found wearing an oxygen mask, Dutch prosecutors say, raising questions about how much those on board knew about their fate when the plane plunged out of the sky above eastern Ukraine in July.Interesting, no?
The passenger did not have the mask on his face, but its elastic strap was around his neck, said Wim de Bruin, a spokesman for the Dutch National Prosecutor's Office which is carrying out a criminal investigation into the air disaster.Engaging in speculation here of course, but, no more so then the Dutch prosecutor did by suggesting the mask wearing passenger was "raising questions about how much those on board knew about their fate" I am going to throw some thoughts out and see what comes back...
De Bruin said Dutch forensic experts investigated the mask "for fingerprints, saliva and DNA and that did not produce any results. So it is not known how or when that mask got around the neck of the victim."
De Bruin said no other bodies recovered from the wreckage were found wearing masks. He said he did not know where in the plane the Australian victim was sitting.
What if this passenger was sitting near a window? Awake? And not staring at a screen?
Could he have seen another plane that was more or less, at the same altitude as MH-17 and also flying a bit too close for comfort?
I have difficulty believing he would have seen a missile from the ground. However, the male passenger seeing a plane flanking MH17 seems a very good reason to put an oxygen mask on, if they had dropped down enmasse. But why did no one else have their mask on?
Also from the linked article it's quite clear that the evidence is going to be made to fit the agenda-
"The head of the criminal investigation said the most likely of possible scenarios being investigated is that the Boeing 777 was shot down from the ground"Sounds to me as if the rebel shootdown scenario is the predetermined outcome being "investigated"
Which means no real investigation.
Dutch official criticized for disclosure
Frans Timmermans, the foreign minister, mentioned the discovery of the oxygen mask late Wednesday during an appearance on a popular Dutch television talk show.
Wim de Bruin, a spokesman for the Dutch national prosecutor’s office, expressed dismay about the disclosure on Thursday. He confirmed that forensics experts had found a yellow plastic oxygen mask around the neck of a male victim among the bodies that arrived at Eindhoven Air Base a week after the crash
George Bibel, a forensics expert and professor of mechanical engineering at the University of North Dakota, said that normally, in the case of a rapid decompression of the aircraft cabin, the plane’s oxygen masks would deploy automatically.
George Bibel is suggesting it's possible not all of the masks deployed and only one managed to put it on- Then throws evidence tampering out as a possibility?“I can imagine a mask remaining around the neck as described,” Professor Bibel said. “The plane ripped apart, some of the oxygen masks deployed, somebody managed to put one on.”But he also acknowledged the possibility that the mask was placed on the victim’s body after the crash
Gotta be honest- I see absolutely zero reason for anyone to do such a thing.
As Greg Bacon says below "the only truth we know is that the USA and Kiev has lied from the start about this tragedy"
