Stolen passports used on missing Malaysian jet [Darleen Click]
Foreign ministry officials in Rome and Vienna confirm that names of two nationals listed on the manifest of the missing Malaysian airlines flight match passports reported stolen in Thailand. [...]
A foreign ministry functionary, who spoke on condition of anonymity, confirmed Italian reports that Luigi Maraldi had reported his passport stolen last August. [...]
Austrian Foreign Ministry spokesman Martin Weiss confirmed that a name listed on the manifest matches an Austrian passport reported stolen two years ago in Thailand.
How did such long-reported stolen passports pass security?
Two anonymous people board a flight, where two-thirds of the passengers are Chinese, and which disappears off radar so fast that no distress signal can be broadcast.
Color me suspicious.
