Update 6:SOMETHING SMELLS FISHYJuly 20, 2014
Friedensblick.de reports that the twitter account of Spanish air traffic controller Manu Abu Carlos, who was on duty in Ukraine when the airplane crashed, was deleted soon after reporting about the presence of two fighter jets along side flight MH17, two minutes before the plane crashed. Carlos was active on Twitter since August 2010, with 10.400 tweets on his name.
Carlos tweeted: ‘El avión B 777 voló escoltado por 2 cazas de ukraine hasta minutos antes, de desaparecer de los radares’.Carlos’ archived twitter accountBesides Carlos’ tweet, another photograph has surfaced which indicates that there signs of bullet impacts on the left wing of the crashed Boeing 777, which completely contradicts the mainstream media who claims that MH17 was shot down by a Russian BUK ground-to-air missile. Sounds fishy? It sure does.
