How's this new trend of Govts immed ruling out foul-play only to slowly acquiesce? I love it. It makes me feel safe. #MH370 #NoYesMaybe

Something fishy here @siangchai M'sian Govt repeatedly declines help from Interpol in search for missing #MH370 http://t.co/hn36lyhCm5

If you missed the Malaysian prime minister’s press conference updating the world on the missing MH370 airliner, you missed a doozy.
Bottom line on #MH370 press conference: Holy. Crap.

Among other things, Najib Razak confirmed that Malaysia’s primary military radar had indeed detected the plane shortly after civilian radars lost its presence:

Razak confirmed that the actions taken to turn off the plane’s responders were “deliberate,” but wouldn’t go on record calling it a hijacking, as an anonymous government official had done earlier.

Razak also revealed that the last satellite contact with the plane was on Saturday at around 8am in the morning — meaning it was flying for seven hours after losing contact with air traffic controllers.
For 2 whole days Malaysia denied that #MH370 flew for hours after losing contact. Now @NajibRazak says they could be in indian ocean!

The Malaysian government ended operations in the South China Sea and with 15 countries assisting, the search has moved to the Indian Ocean.
#MH370 Malaysia PM: Refocused investigation into the crew. Ending operations in S. China Sea.

Malaysia PM: last #MH370 contact was either btwn Kazakhstan and Thailand or btwn Indonesia and Southern Indian Ocean. Impossible large area
— UN Lede (@unlede) March 15, 2014
The PM refused to answer questions, raising eyebrows around the world.
This #MH370 conference is very weird.. Not a good start with reporters being told that they can't ask questions. #PrayForMH370

As we were alerting it'd vanished, plane still in air MT @JeromeTaylor PM: Last confirmed communication between #MH370, satellite 8:11am Sat

So in the missing Malaysian plane #MH370 debacle, the authorities have conveniently discovered 'new' evidence they had all along. #Fishy

#MH370 Biggest conspiracy mystery in history. Better news from major news sources than from Malay government. Something is fishy.
— Terry Held (@terryheld) March 15, 2014
A few days ago Malaysia denied a report that the plane flew for a few hours after last communication, then now they confirm? #fishy #MH370

Twitchy will update as news develops. One thing’s for sure: The passengers and their families need continued prayers.
