Here’s a screenshot of their search page. You can see the article they had up talking about how the Phoenix Express drills in the Mediterranean Sea had begun. This is the same article I used as a source in my first article about the drill.
And here is what that links to now.
Gone. History. Down the rabbit holeThat’s not suspicious, now is it?
And now the Navy has dropped their webpage on Phoenix Express 2016? That’s a little curious, huh?
The Egyptians say they are having to wait 14 days or so before a French vessel shows up to help them search for the missing black boxes from the aircraft. By then they expect the pinging to have stopped.
Like Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, they will never find that aircraft because if they do, they will have to explain why it looks like it was hit by a missile and not blown up by someone’s “soda can” bomb.
Now it is possible that someone at the Navy decided they didn’t want folks to be confused by their drill taking place at the same time the plane suddenly blew up for no apparent reason and that is possible I suppose.
But in terms of counter-productive PR, this is probably text-book. Obviously, removing the page is going to cause people to be suspicious. Leaving the link on the other page, making sure people understand that the article and the drill were in fact real and official evidence of them has been removed, is yet another example of “military intelligence” turning out to be not that intelligent after-all.
