    Air France a terrorist attack after all?

    Terror Names Linked To Doomed Flight AF 447: Two Passengers Shared Names Of Radical Muslims | World News | Sky News


    So was this more than just a pilot error or bad storm? Something about it has been fishy from the outset.

    I really hope they can find those black boxes.

    You would think that if it were related to an Organization they would have issued a statement already.

    If the title ends with a question mark, the answer is no.

    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
    The people weren't linked to terrorism - their names were. Sounds like the french version of "John Smith is on the terror watch list" to me

    Two Air France Passenger Names Probed for Terror Links - International News | News of the World | Middle East News | Europe News - FOXNews.com

    Two names on doomed Air France Flight 447's passenger list also appear on a list of radical Muslims considered a threat to France, according to French investigators.

    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.
    You'd think such a thing would have been caught and investigated pre-boarding.

    weeehoooo! reckless speculation! I heard that Osama Bin Laden and the ghost of Saddam Husein were the terrorists on board. They were looking to fly the plane into Big Ben, but it was spoiled by Scooby Doo who died heroically in a water grave due to his meddling in others affairs.

    Re: Air France a terrorist attack after all?

    I was put off by the SkyNews link, but now I find the story on DebkaFile, the Israeli intelligence site.

    DEBKAfile's counter-terror sources report that in the last few months Paris has received several threats of an impending al Qaeda mega-attack against a French city on the lines of the hijacked airliners which struck New York and Washington on September 11, 2001. The jihadis were bent on punishing president Nicolas Sarkozy for posting fresh French troops to Afghanistan.

    Should further investigations connect the two Muslim passengers to this conspiracy, it would go far to indicate that the Air France flight was destined to crash over Paris - except that the plan misfired and the plane came down sooner than planned over the Atlantic.

    According to our sources, the French flight crews warned of the plot might have succeeded into pre-empting it by an extraordinary act of bravery to crash the plane in the ocean before it reached France.

    Alternatively, the two purported terrorists may have been on a suicide operation like the Egyptian Airline pilot who brought his Boeing 767 into the Atlantic off the US coast on March 31, 1999.

    With the paucity of hard data, there is little to hold back speculation.

    At this juncture, terrorism cannot be affirmatively ruled out as a possible cause of the crash.

    However, all such speculation comes with the caveat that there is no firm evidence to support terrorism either.

    All of this is speculation. No more and no less.

    The only correct answer to the question is "We do not know."

    The big news reporters like BBC and the CNN would have taken this more seriously if it had any bases of truth, and wasnt just mere speculation. I think this would have been conclusive evidence if this were the case but i find it hard to believe there was any radical muslims on board. Everything points to a faulty system. This thread belongs in the Conspiracy Theory forum.

    Why do you find it hard to believe there were radical Muslims on board?
