[Ed. – May or may not be moot now, depending on what experts decide about the airplane parts recently found in the Indian Ocean.]
U.S. intelligence agencies put together an assessment in the wake of the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 indicating that the plane was deliberately taken off course, according to a source with knowledge of the matter.
The assessment — made months ago and concerning what most likely happened to the plane — which disappeared in March 2014, also said that the Boeing 777 was also potentially deliberately downed, the source said.
However, according to the source, the assessment “doesn’t matter” and was built on information that intelligence officials could glean about the foreign investigation in the disappearance.
Those foreign investigators “are the ones who ultimately will make the conclusion” of what happened to MH370.
