Terror Names Linked To Flight AF 447

From the UK’s Sky News:

Terror Names Linked To Doomed Flight AF 447

Peter Allen, in Paris

Wednesday June 10, 2009

Two passengers with names linked to Islamic terrorism were on the Air France flight which crashed with the loss of 228 lives, it has emerged.

French secret servicemen established the connection while working through the list of those who boarded the doomed Airbus in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on May 31.

Flight AF 447 crashed in the mid-Atlantic en route to Paris during a violent storm.

While it is certain there were computer malfunctions, terrorism has not been ruled out.

Soon after news of the fatal crash broke, agents working for the DGSE (Direction Générale de la Sécurité Extérieure), the French equivalent of MI6, were dispatched to Brazil.

It was there that they established that two names on the passenger list are also on highly-classified documents listing the names of radical Muslims considered a threat to the French Republic.

A source working for the French security services told Paris weekly L’Express that the link was "highly significant".

Agents are now trying to establish dates of birth for the two dead passengers, and family connections.

There is a possibility the name similarities are simply a "macabre coincidence", the source added, but the revelation is still being "taken very seriously".

France has received numerous threats from Islamic terrorist groups in recent months, especially since French troops were sent to fight in Afghanistan…

Sure this is a preliminary investigation.

But why isn’t this being carried by our stateside media masters?

    Airlines don’t want people thinking they are lax. First it was a storm. Now it’s a violent storm. Can’t have people afraid to fly.

    The shame about N. Korea, young girls probably weren’t taught in school about communists, and doesn’t appear Democrats like Gore, worry.
    But, if the world cracked down on muslims entering and leaving, then maybe their own countries would work harder to kill the radicals in their own countries.

    Most definitely, because Les Peuples Pour L’equalite’ (I just made that up) will have a field day if someone gets profiled unfairly.

    I have been following this story with great interest. I asked a liberal friend of mine is she heard about the crash (she flies international all the time), and she said yeah the strom brought it down. I asked her how many storms she had flown through, and how many times she crashed. She asked me if I thought terrorism was to blame, and laughed when I said it can’t be ruled out.

    Lets be honest. Airplanes don’t lose cabin pressure unless something dramatic happens (something must penatrate the skin of the aircraft). I am not rulling out a catastrophic weather related event, but planes fly through them every day. Planes also fly in this area on a daily basis and this is the 1st time we have had this happen.

    Common things occur commonly. Sure a bizzaire weather event could have brought the plane down, but I am unaware of any mid flight cabin depressurazations due to weather (perhaps there are a few out there). This would seem to be an uncommon reason for a plane to lose cabin pressure in mid flight. A more common, perhaps the most common, reason to lose cabin pressure in mid flight would be an explosion of some type. Could be an accident like TWA 800, or perhaps something more sinister like the Pam Am flight over Lockerbie, Scotland.

    Glad to see someone believes the story needs a little checking on before we blame the weather terrorists!

    You know, like “locking the barn door after the horse is out.”
