Picture Of Two Iranians Using Stolen Passports Photo Shopped

Pictures of the two men, a 19-year old Iranian, identified by Malaysian police as Pouria Nour Mohammad Mehrdad, left, and the man on the right, his identity still not released, who boarded the now missing Malaysia Airlines jet MH370 with stolen passports, is held up by a Malaysian policewoman during a press conference, Tuesday, March 11, 2014 in Sepang, Malaysia. One of the two men traveling on a missing Malaysian Airlines jetliner was an Iranian asylum seeker, officials said Tuesday, as baffled authorities expanded their search for the Boeing 777 on the opposite side of the country from where it disappeared nearly four days ago with 239 people on board.(AP Photo/Wong Maye-E)

The two men shown above are the Iranian men who allegedly used stolen passports to board missing flight MH370. I now say allegedly because this picture has without a doubt been altered. Malaysian officials confirmed that the photo had indeed been altered but it was not done so intentionally.

If not done intentionally, then why do it at all? It makes absolutely no sense. But then again, nothing does anymore. People who never use to buy in to all the crazy conspiracy theory stuff are now questioning everything. And why wouldn't we? This has all the sloppiness attached to it that matches the sloppiness of everything Obama does. All the scandals and all the "covert" activities from Washington and around the globe are not even executed well. A child could point out the holes in the stories and just saying that you "didn't know anything about it" is not good enough. We want answers. We need answers.

I read one story yesterday that mentions one of the 2 men using the stolen passports looked like Mario Balotelli. If you aren't familiar with Mario (I wasn't either), here is a picture:

Authorities say the passenger who boarded missing plane with a fake passport looked like Italian footballer Mario Balotelli.

Now, I realize that my geography is not always the best and that I don't always consider myself to be the sharpest knife in the drawer, but this Italian football player looks nothing like the Iranian we have been given a picture of.
"I can confirm that he is not a Malaysian, but cannot divulge which country he is from yet," Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar told The Star, a major Malaysian newspaper. He added that the man was also not from Xinjiang, China - a north-western province of the mainland home to minority Uighurs. Uighur separatists have been blamed for a knifing rampage in south-western China this month that left 29 dead.
Civil aviation chief Azharuddin Abdul Rahman declined to confirm this, but said they are of "non-Asian" appearance, adding that authorities were looking at the possibility the men were connected to a stolen passport syndicate. Asked by a reporter what they looked like "roughly", he said:
"Do you know of a footballer by the name of [Mario] Balotelli? He is Italian. Do you know what he looks like?" A reporter then asked, "Is he black?" and the aviation chief replied, "Yes".
So apparently they were looking at different surveillance footage than what we have been shown. Such a strange thing to say if the two men are Iranian. And then yesterday, an Iranian lawmaker made claims that the US is responsible for the disappearance of the plane. This is taken from International Business Times:
A prominent Iranian lawmaker has blamed the US for the disappearance of Malaysian flight MH370, claiming Washington wants to cause "psychological warfare"  between Iran

and China.

Hossein Naghavi Hosseini, the spokesman for Iran's Parliament National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, said the missing plane has been "kidnapped" by the US in order to "sabotage the relationship between Iran and China and South East Asia".
Hosseini was responding to the news that two of the 239 passengers on board the flight wereIranians with forged passports. This lead to some speculation the plane may have been involved in a terrorist attack or a botched hijacking.

Hosseini described this as a "plot" against Iran initiated by the US.
"Documents published by the Western media about two Iranians getting on the plane without passports is psychological warfare," he told the Tasnim news agency.
"Americans recruit some people for such kinds of operations so they can throw the blame on other countries, especially Muslim countries."
Officials said that the two men who used forged documents to board the flight had no links to terrorist organisations.

Iran's foreign ministry said it was ready to cooperate in the investigations.
"We have received information on possible presence of two Iranians among the plane's crews. We are pursuing the issue," said Marzieh Afkham, the Iranian foreign ministry spokeswoman.

"We have informed our embassy in Malaysia that we are ready to receive further information about the issue from Malaysian officials. We have announced that we were ready for cooperation."

Confusion still reigns over where MH370 could be, spurred on by Malaysian officials being unable to clarify the plane's last known movements.
There were reports the plane was tracked flying over the Malacca Strait by a military radar – far to the west of its planned route. This would have proved the plane was in the air for more than an hour after it vanished from radar.

"It changed course after Kota Bharu and took a lower altitude. It made it into the Malacca Strait," the unnamed official told Reuters.
Malaysia's air force chief denied the reports came from him, but instead pointed out the air force had "not ruled out the possibility of an air turn-back".Vietnam has said it has stopped its air search and scaled back its sea search until Malasia can offer more detail on the flight's suggested whereabouts.
"We've decided to temporarily suspend some search and rescue activities, pending information from Malaysia," Vietnam's deputy transport minister Pham Quy Tieu told reporters.
"We still have plans to search with a few flights today, while other activities are suspended."

I don't know, but it looks like we have another "conspiracy" on our hands. Too many things just don't add up.


  1. Uh...I would not have pegged old Mario for being Italian either. But I am anti Obama so I must be racist anyway.
