    America's DHS has a no-fly list that includes many muslim extremists. This flight was going from Brazil to France. I don't know what security measures those countries take, but I don't think they have access to/check passengers against our terror watch list

    But France does, and they check all outgoing and incoming flights?

    All countries have their own lists of people either not wanted or to be watched when entering said country. Hence France has its own list, the UK, Spain and so on.

    Does france's include extremists or just run-of-the-mill persona non grata?

    Well then as i have already said, surely if this was true, France would have spotted this out before and ended this mystery of "was it a system failure?", "bad weather", etc. And it also wouldnt be subject to petty small time news reporters and not main stream media.

    Even the French Ministry said throwing such a possibility off the table at this stage is not only reckless but foolish.

    Some of you are going to look like real asshats if it does turn out to be shown to be some Islamic Terrorist act.

    uh..yeah?

    Pan Am Flight 103 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    As to date, no word of responsibility. Furthermore, last I checked, no indication of explosive related damage to the parts recovered. Appears just to be physical damage from the impact and storm.

    So terrorists who want to kill lots of people and have lots of people watching are suddenly...silent?

    Furthermore, if the crew of the plane tried to crash the plane, why did they change flight paths to turn around and return to the airport? There's no way they could have gotten back to the airport to subdue the terrorists in time. It would have been much simplier to simple just throttle down into the ocean.

    This appears to be a mechanical failure. The fact that airliners across the planet are now changing equipment believed to have cause part of the crash is further evidence.

    And terrorism is virtually off the table:

    Other causes have not been ruled out, but France's interior ministry said two passengers identified as suspicious turned out not to be a concern. The website of the French weekly L'Express had quoted a French military spokesman as saying they could have been linked to Islamic terrorism.
