As the world digests news of yet another airline disaster, the fourth major catastrophe in a year, and awaits news of what might actually have happened, we are treated to another bizarro world intervention from the world’s greatest idiot Barack Hussein Obama.
from Zero Hedge:
While the White House, seemingly an expert in determining airplane crashes causes within hours if not minutes of the accident (see flight MH-17) has already opined on the tragic crash of the Lufthansa Germanwings airplane: White House – No Indication Of Terrorism In Germanwings Crash.
Now how could they know. OK, at this stage saying there is no indication of terrorism is true, but it is true in the same way as saying, “There is no indication that the aircraft was in collision with an elephant.”
Could be of course Obama has word from his ISIS and Al Qaeda mates that it wasn’t them. Otherwise the Messiah of ineptitude has only succeeded in drawing attention to himself and giving fuel to the lunatic fringe.
First pictures of the crash site are indistinct but eye witness reports suggest the wreckage is confined to a fairly small area.
A local lawmaker says the debris from the plane crash in the French Alps that killed all 150 people on board is spread over 100-200 meters (110-220 yards). Gilbert Sauvan, president of the general council of the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, told the AP that “everything is pulverized.”
Sauvan said the largest pieces of debris are the size of a small car. No one can access the site from the ground, but that helicopters are circling the area to get information and 500 firefighters and gendarmes are in the area.

Further evidence that the airplane crash was not a midair disintegration is that while the vertical airspeed was susbtantial, it wasn’t freefall, and it took the airplane about 10 minutes to drop from a height of 11.5k to its final resting place some 2 kilometers high in the alps.
Knowing that the aircraft did not blow apart in mid air or stall and go into freefall does not however rule out some terrorist act of some kind. As the wreckage is not accessible and, according to reports from German news stations, after one distress call from the aircraft there was no further communication we cannot possibly know what happened.
UPDATE: 4:25 PM UK TIME, ASSOCIATED PRESS NOW REPORTS THAT THE AIRCRAFT DID NOT SEND OUT A DISTRESS CALL.
Unless of course our dear old friend Professor Want – War (I’m not giving him a link, it only encourages him, but you can see his crazy comments in the thread under this post on MH17) is able to tell us, as he did in the case of flight MH17 that because Barack Hussein Obama is the son of God made flesh it is quite obvious that Vladimir Putin, holed up in the Kremlin, fired a peashooter from Moscow and that is what brought the flight down.
There is something going on with these airline disasters and the speed with which the US government offers glib explanations which are never substantiated points in the other direction from Moscow however.
