"...a fair and balanced presentation of the very diverse views of this tragedy of the century. It is written without fear or favor, and I salute its authors for that." --Sakinab Zaharie, sister of Captain Zaharie of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370Reseña del editor:
A year after the disappearance and commencement of the international search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, no sign of the plane has been found--no debris, no bodies, no sign of the much-talked-about black box. Richard Belzer and David Wayne want to know why. Scrutinizing the theories the media and politicians around the world claim are the most likely reasons the plane crashed, Belzer and Wayne argue that if a year after a huge Boeing 777 has gone missing, and there's still no sign of it whatsoever, it's time to think outside the box. The public needs to stop being misled. If a plane and it's passengers went missing once, what's to stop it from happening again? In informative, engaging text, Belzer and Wayne consider ten lesser-talked-about possible crash-causers, such as pilot error (or suicide); hijacking; and a shoot-down. They consider the fact that nearly 9% of Americans think the plane may have been abducted by aliens (according to a CNN poll)--even the possibility that its disappearance may have been a charade. Maybe the entire ordeal was fabricated. Some of the theories Belzer and Wayne consider seem implausible on the surface, but the thorough, comprehensive research they've done and the continual failure of politicians, aviation authorities, and military members around the world to give any indication that Belzer and Wayne are wrong makes their arguments as good--if not better--than the more widely shared ones. The title of this unique and thought-provoking volume, Someone is Hiding Something, is a line spoken by Former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad--perhaps the only government official to publicly acknowledge the true reason that neither Flight 370 nor the 239 people on-board it were found or heard from after it went off the grid.
