On May 18, the former Prime Minister of Malaysia reportedly accused the United States Central Intelligence Agency of knowing where missing Malaysia flight 370 is located. He revealed his feelings in statements released to the public via his personal blog.
Malaysia’s influential former prime minister Mahathir Mohamad, 88, claimed in a personal blog post that the CIA knows exactly where the plane went down and is keeping the information from the public. Several of his statements centered around his theory that “planes just don’t disappear.”

Dr Mahathir said the CIA could have switched the plane onto autopilot remotely if it had been hijacked.
“Remotely by radio or satellite links by government agencies like the Central Intelligence Agency [CIA], if terrorists attempt to gain control of the flight deck,” the former Prime Minister wrote in a post entitled “What Goes Up Must Come Down” on his popular blog, Chedet.
“The plane is somewhere, maybe without MAS [Malaysia Airlines] markings,” Dr. Mahathir revealed. “It is a waste of time and money to look for debris or oil slick or to listen for pings from the black box”
“For some reason, the media will not print anything that involves Boeing or the CIA,” the Prime Minister explained.
Dr Mahathir served as Malaysia’s prime minister between 1981 and 2003. He firmly believes that the missing flight’s communication system “must have been disabled.”

Malaysia’s current Prime Minister, Najib Razak, said in an internationally televised press conference in April that the missing flight ended somewhere over the indian ocean. Later that month he told CNN‘s Richard Quest, in a TV interview on April 25, that he was not prepared to state that the victims of the plane’s disappearance are gone forever.
The plane went missing more than 50 days ago without a trace. There have been many attempts to find the downed aircraft but not even the smallest piece of debris has been turned up.
Eight countries, and countless man hours of searching off the western coast of Australia have only produced distraught and upset family members, left behind when the plane went down.
