Updated - Suicide or 'Manchurian Candidate?' | Germanwings Co-Pilot, Andreas Lubitz, Deliberately Crashed Plane, Prosecutor Says

This post will be updated as new data is released. Check back frequently. 

Updated March 29th - Below we discuss Jim Stone's data regarding the Remote Hijack Recovery System.

Update March 28th - Below we analyze the Keypad override could have used to open the cockpit door, and the suggestion by Gordon Duff that the plane's Fly By Wire system could have been used to safely guide it to the ground. 

Update March 27th - The Media is now painting Lubitz as a depressed man, who had "mental health problems."
The chilling final moments of the doomed jet were revealed by French prosecutors who said Lubitz's sole aim was to 'destroy the plane'. 
It has since emerged that he was forced to postpone his pilot training in 2008 because of mental health problems, with a friend saying he was 'in depression.' - Natural News
The Mainstream media is reporting that the copilot, Andreas Lubitz, deliberately brought the plane down, but they are not saying suicide out right, although they are suggesting it with reports of depression and a 'troubled past.'
Lubitz had spent 18 months overall under psychiatric treatment, Bild reported on Friday, citing anonymous sources within Lufthansa, Germanwings’ parent company. The pilot was diagnosed with a “severe depressive episode” in 2009, the German daily says. It claims it got access to Lubitz’s profile, indicating the pilot had “psychological problems” and required a “special, exemplary regular medical examination,” reports RT.
Its a logical inference to make, either Lubitz committed suicide or had another motivation for deliberately crashing the plane; revenge or terror attack. Or, he was not aware of the events in a conscious sense, he was being manipulated; a Manchurian Candidate. All this is reminiscent of the Batman shootings in 2013, where Holmes went through a similar 'bout of depression' and then 'snapped', killing dozens. However the evidence points to a staged event, or false flag. 

Given the available evidence, which is more likely? The media is not reporting that he was depressed:
As the Mirror reports: 
The mother of an ex-classmate of Lubitz told how the co-pilot - who deliberately flew the passenger jet into the Alps killing 150 people - had confided in her daughter a few years ago. 
She said: "He apparently was suffering from burnout or depression." - Natural News

Suicide

It is now being reported that Lubitz was depressed, had issues with 'burn out' and was possibly on SSRI medication. While it is possible this was simply a break in his psyche, it seems more likely it was something else given all the evidence. Other than the depression reported, which a majority of the people in the 1st world suffer from, there were not other indicators of suicide revealed:





Suicidal people usually (emphasis on usually) express the following traits:
  • Always talking or thinking about death
  • Clinical depression -- deep sadness, loss of interest, trouble sleeping and eating -- that gets worse
  • Having a "death wish," tempting fate by taking risks that could lead to death, such as driving fast or running red lights
  • Losing interest in things one used to care about
  • Making comments about being hopeless, helpless, or worthless
  • Putting affairs in order, tying up loose ends, changing a will
  • Saying things like "it would be better if I wasn't here" or "I want out"
  • Sudden, unexpected switch from being very sad to being very calm or appearing to be happy
  • Talking about suicide or killing one's self
  • Visiting or calling people to say goodbye
At this point in the investigation, there are no witnesses that have come forward to testify as to the distraught state of Lubitz other than depression. 

He didn't just kill himself, he killed 144 other passengers and 5 crew members, that is 150 people. This act of extreme violence suggests he was trying exact revenge or make some grand display with his suicide. But if this was the case, there should be a note, or something which brings his cause to light, yet there is nothing. He doesn't say anything during his "8 minutes on stage," while the plane is descending. All this suggests suicide was not his motivation.

Terror Attack or Revenge

Assuming that there were not suicidal indicators, then one would conclude another motivation. Was he trying to send a message to the public or a person? Was he trying to make someone pay?

Again, when looking at the evidence, we see no indications of this. No note, no manifesto. He did not scream revenge during the 8 minutes of descent. His last words were laconic, as the investigator describes. All this suggests terrorism or revenge was not his motivation.

Manchurian Candidate 

The Investigator reported that Lubtiz could be heard breathing normally during the entire event. While the commanding pilot was trying to smash the door down and the plane was descending:
“During the first 20 minutes, the pilots talk normally,” Mr. Robin said, saying they spoke in a “cheerful” and “courteous” way. “There is nothing abnormal happening,” he said.

The prosecutor said the transcript showed that the captain was preparing a briefing for landing in Düsseldorf. The co-pilot’s answer, the prosecutor said, was “laconic.” [using few words]

The commanding pilot then asks the co-pilot to take over, and the noise of a seat backing up and a door closing can be heard.

“At this stage, the co-pilot is in control, alone,” the prosecutor said. “It is when he is alone that the co-pilot manipulates the flight monitoring system to activate the descent of the plane.” The prosecutor said that this action could only have been “voluntary.”

The control the co-pilot activated requires several turns, Mr. Robin said, and it could not have been turned to such a low altitude accidentally.The captain is heard pleading to get back into the cockpit, but the co-pilot, heard breathing normally until the plane crashes, does not react, Mr. Robin said.

“You can hear the commanding pilot ask for access to the cockpit several times,” the prosecutor said. “He identifies himself, but the co-pilot does not provide any answer.”

“You can hear human breathing in the cockpit up until the moment of impact,” he said, adding that the breathing did not indicate any health problem such as a heart attack.

Given the calm state of Lubitz during the entire event, and that the other pilot was completely surprised by his behavior, it suggest that Lubitz was either a psychopathic or sociopathic individual, or that he was in some type of altered state. The lack of od behavior observed rules out a psychopathic motive.

Possibly the influence of drugs or hypnosis was at work, the former potentially being revealed during investigation. As of this writing, it is suspected he was on medication, but no confirmation can be found at this time.

Hypnosis is the most likely explanation given all the available data, and fits the Manchurian Candidate profile. Much like the Batman Shooting and other infamous unsuspecting assassins.

He was acting normal and cheerful for most of the flight, and then seemly out of no where, he becomes laconic, using very few words. This suggests that some 'trigger' caused the altered state to take effect, at which point, his conscious mind and normal responses ceased. He does not react to anything after that, other than to carry out the suggestion, to destroy the plane.

And that is exactly what happens. While the whole plane is in hysterics, Lubitz is breathing normally: “You can hear human breathing in the cockpit up until the moment of impact.And they even go as far as to say his breathing indicates no health problems, in other words he was completely normal and calm. Again this suggests a hypnotic trance of some kind. 

Unsuspecting Assassins

The following excerpt is an article with CIA declassified documents confirming 'Manchurian Candidates' have been used in the past, under the name Unsuspecting Assassins. This was achieved by placing them in a hypnotic trance, usually after splitting the personality via traumatic conditioning:
Manchurian Candidate Definition

The term Manchurian Candidate derives from a 1959 novel by Richard Condon titled “The Manchurian Candidate.” Condon portrays a platoon of American soldiers during the Korean War who are sent to Manchuria (Northeast China), where they captured, brainwashed, and given alter personalities programmed to assassinate key individuals and overthrow the US government. As a result, the term Manchurian Candidate now signifies a person who has had their personality split into “alters” which commit murder or other acts without conscious knowledge of what they’ve done.
The CIA has declassified over 18,000 pages of documents on extensive mind control programs carried out since the early 1950s. These documents prove that the government developed a Manchurian Candidate program which was quite real. Through the Freedom of Information Act, you can order these documents in the form of three CDs directly from the US government for only $30. You can also find extensive quotes on the creation of Manchurian Candidates from the most revealing of these documents with links for verification at this link.

Excerpts Proving Creation of Manchurian Candidates

Below is a sample of just two of these declassified documents and one scientific article depicting the Manchurian Candidate program. These excerpts are taken from the excellent mind control summary at this link. These documents and quotes show that the riveting book and film Manchurian Candidate are more fact than fiction. First, a declassified CIA document dated Jan. 7, 1953 describes the experimental creation of alter personalities in two 19-year-old girls:

“These subjects have clearly demonstrated that they can pass from a fully awake state to a deep hypnotic state by telephone, by receiving written matter, or by the use of code, signal, or words, and that control of those hypnotized can be passed from one individual to another without great difficulty. It has also been shown by experimentation with these girls that they can act as unwilling couriers for information purposes.” (CIA Mori ID 190684)

To see an online copy of the declassified CIA document with the quote above, click here. A second document dated Feb. 10, 1954 describes an experiment on creating unsuspecting assassins:

“Miss [deleted] was instructed (having previously expressed a fear of firearms) that she would use every method at her disposal to awaken miss [deleted] (now in a deep hypnotic sleep). Failing this, she would pick up a pistol and fire it at Miss [deleted]. She was instructed that her rage would be so great that she would not hesitate to ‘kill’ [deleted]. Miss [deleted] carried out these suggestions including firing the (unloaded) gun at [deleted], and then proceeded to fall into a deep sleep. After proper suggestions were made, both were awakened. Miss [deleted] expressed absolute denial that the foregoing sequence had happened.” (CIA Mori ID 190691)

To see an online copy of this second declassified CIA document with the quote above, click here. In a 1971 Science Digest article, Dr. G.H. Estabrooks states:

“By the 1920′s clinical hypnotists learned to split certain individuals into multiple personalities like Jeckyl-Hydes. During WWII, I worked this technique with a Marine lieutenant I’ll call Jones. I split his personality into Jones A and Jones B. Jones A, once a ‘normal’ working Marine, became entirely different. He talked communist doctrine and meant it. He was welcomed enthusiastically by communist cells, and was deliberately given a dishonorable discharge. Jones B was the deeper personality, knew all the thoughts of Jones A, and was ‘imprinted’ to say nothing during conscious phases. All I had to do was hypnotize him, get in touch with Jones B, and I had a pipeline straight into the Communist camp.” (Science Digest, April 1971, pp. 44-50)

The 18,000 pages of released documents released are only the tip of the iceberg. The CIA still refuses to release many thousands of pages. And millions of pages of secret documents on the program were destroyed by order of CIA Director Richard Helms in 1973 when he was tipped off that there was going to be a Congressional investigation into the CIA’s mind control activities. - See full article here
The use of hypnosis was crucial for creating an altered state. Sirhan Sirhan, the assassin who killed Robert Kennedy, is one infamous examples in conspiracy circles. 

KeyPad Override Could have the Opened Cockpit Door



According to a safety video from 2001, the Airbus A320 has an emergency keypad for opening the cockpit door. This allows someone with the correct code to override the locking mechanism, opening the door. This data has several possible interpretations. 
  • The locking mechanism was working properly, and the commanding pilot simply did not know the code. 
  • The locking mechanism was malfunctioning, with no nefarious manipulation taking place. 
  • The locking mechanism was intentionally sabotaged in order to ensure Lubitz would crash the plane, implying a nefarious intent and conspiracy. 
  • The data recorder recovered so quickly is infact a staged recording. Which implies that the plane could have been guided wirelessly, or that there was no plane at all, similar to the infamous 9/11 Pentagon 'crash' of Flight 77. As of this writing, there have been no reports of human remains found at the crash site.
At this point there is not enough information to make a definitive conclusion.

It could just have been a malfunction, or human error on the part of the pilot. In this case, Lubitz' behavior still brings a great deal into question, as he fits the Manchurian Candidate profile.

If the lock was intentionally tampered with, the Manchurian Candidate theory remains a strong possibility, given all the other similarities between Lubitz and James Holmes, the Batman Massacre killer from mid 2013.

Finally, the lack of wreckage and human remains suggests that the recorder itself could be staged. There may not have been a plane at all in this instance.

What we do know is that the media is remaining silent on the keypad issue. It would be reasonable to assume that if there was a simple explanation for the lock not being used, it would have been address when questions arose about it.

Fly By Wire Rescue

Gordon Duff recently attempted to upload a pdf on Scribed of a Flight Manual for the Airbus A320, which clearly indicates there was a keypad lock, and that the plane had Fly By Wire capabilities. This would have allowed the plane to be safely guided to the ground, in case of emergency or hostile take over.

Scribed took down the pdf very quickly after Duff's attempted upload, suggesting a highly organized cover up maybe underway. 
"Sure, “they” crashed Scribd today when Gordon was posting the Germanwings 320 Airbus operating manual for its cockpit security door system that showed a keypad entry option in case of an emergency. They did it very quickly, which means there was some monitoring going on. And then there is still the unaddressed issue of why the “fly by wire” override system was not triggered to take over the plane."
No official response has been given about the fly by wire system either. Again if there was a simple explanation, why not offer it. 

Remote Hijack Recovery System

Jim Stone offered up the that post 9/11 Airbus A320 planes all have a remote recovery system, which can be used to take over a plane if no contact has been made with the flight crew:
At the time of 911, there were three well known aircraft that had remote control hijack recovery as a standard feature. These three aircraft were the Boeing 757, 767 and the Airbus A320. "Witnesses have described hearing an explosion 'like the sound of dynamite' then seeing fighter jets fly past, suggesting the passenger plane had been under military escort"
Jim suggests that the Fighter Jets witness saw actually activated the Remote Recovery system and intentionally stirred the plane down at high speeds to ensure most of the evidence was destroyed. For the full report click here

Conclusions

Of course at this point, this is all speculation. There is no direct evidence of any 'brainwashing' made available as of yet, but there is a possible explanation given correlative evidence.

The peculiar tranquility during the descent (calm rhythmic breathing captured by the voice recorder) suggest an altered state of consciousness.

The only way for Lubitz to be unaffected by the screams and banging of the commanding pilot, in addition to the descent itself, would for him to be in an hypnotic trance. This can actually be determined fairly easily. 

If he was conscious (not hypnotized), he would have been in a heightened emotional state (adrenal response), intense breathing and reactiveness to external stimuli. At each point when a loud noise is heard, there should be a variance registered in Lubitz breathing patterns. 

Conversely, if he was in a deep hypnotic trance, like a Manchurian Candidate, Lubitz would be completely unaffected by external stimuli, as if he was completely unaware in a normal sense. It would seem that the latter possibility is the most likely at this point.

Of course if the audio from the recorder was staged, this changes the likely outcomes. The strong possibility of Lubitz being an Manchurian Candidate changes until new data comes to the surface.

The media has played their hand so to speak, in the sense that they are pushing the suicide story, and ignoring key issues like the Keypad and the Fly By Wire systems. If Jim's theory is correct, then the flight recorder data is highly questionable.

Considering the persistent manipulation of world events by our would-be masters, there is enough evidence to suggest this could be another 'staged' event, the details of which remain elusive at this point. 

Staged in the sense that the official story is not reflective of all the facts, not that people didn't really die

See 42 Government ADMITTED False Flag Attacks for an official disclosure of 'staged' events of the past. 

We will be keeping a close eye on this story as it develops.

PARIS — The co-pilot of Germanwings flight 9525 deliberately crashed the aircraft, French officials said Thursday, pointing to voice recorder evidence that he had locked the captain out of the cockpit, ignored his pleas for re-entry and steered down into the French Alps as passengers were heard screaming.

The assertions instantly changed the nature of the Tuesday crash, which obliterated the Airbus A320 and killed all 150 aboard, into a wide-ranging criminal investigation that focused on the co-pilot, a 27-year-old German with no obvious reason to commit mass murder, who had been hired less than two years ago. The top executive of Lufthansa, the parent company of Germanwings, said he was speechless at the news from France.

In Marseille, the chief prosecutor handling the criminal investigation, Brice Robin, said, “At this moment, in light of investigation, the interpretation we can give at this time is that the co-pilot through voluntary abstention refused to open the door of the cockpit to the commander, and activated the button that commands the loss of altitude.”

Mr. Robin said it appeared that the intention of the co-pilot, identified as Andreas Lubitz, had been “to destroy the aircraft.” He said the voice recorder showed that the co-pilot had been breathing until before the moment of impact, suggesting that he was conscious and deliberate in bringing the plane down and killing 144 passengers and five other crew members on Tuesday.

The German Foreign Ministry said half the dead were Germans, including four dual citizens. Most of the others were from Spain, with a smattering from other countries. Three were from the United States.

The revelation that one of the pilots of the jetliner was locked out of the cockpit before it crashed, which was first reported in The New York Times, raised troubling questions. Search teams continued to scour the rugged terrain of the French Alps for clues, and several other issues remained unclear on Thursday, including the identity of the captain and why he had left the cockpit.

The inquiry shows that the crash was intentional, Mr. Robin said, and said he was considering changing his investigation from involuntary manslaughter to voluntary manslaughter.

He said there was no indication that it was a terrorist attack, and added that Mr. Lubitz was not known to law enforcement officials. After the news conference, the German interior minister, Thomas de Maizière, told reporters in Berlin that security officials had checked their records after Tuesday’s crash and found no indication that anyone aboard had links to terrorism.

An investigation into the background of Mr. Lubitz, who was from the German town of Montabaur, is underway. German news media initially said he was 28, but the local authorities said he was born on Dec. 18, 1987, which would make him 27.

Asked if Mr. Lubitz had tried to commit suicide, the French prosecutor said, “I haven’t used the word suicide,” adding that it was “a legitimate question to ask.”

A photo taken from social media shows Andreas Lubitz, the co-pilot of the Germanwings jetliner that crashed in the French Alps on Tuesday.




The flight was heading to Düsseldorf, Germany, from Barcelona, Spain, on Tuesday morning when it descended and slammed into the French Alps.

The French prosecutor said that the authorities had a full transcript of the final 30 minutes of the voice recorder.

“During the first 20 minutes, the pilots talk normally,” Mr. Robin said, saying they spoke in a “cheerful” and “courteous” way. “There is nothing abnormal happening,” he said.

The prosecutor said the transcript showed that the captain was preparing a briefing for landing in Düsseldorf. The co-pilot’s answer, the prosecutor said, was “laconic.”

The commanding pilot then asks the co-pilot to take over, and the noise of a seat backing up and a door closing can be heard.

“At this stage, the co-pilot is in control, alone,” the prosecutor said. “It is when he is alone that the co-pilot manipulates the flight monitoring system to activate the descent of the plane.” The prosecutor said that this action could only have been “voluntary.”

The control the co-pilot activated requires several turns, Mr. Robin said, and it could not have been turned to such a low altitude accidentally.The captain is heard pleading to get back into the cockpit, but the co-pilot, heard breathing normally until the plane crashes, does not react, Mr. Robin said.

“You can hear the commanding pilot ask for access to the cockpit several times,” the prosecutor said. “He identifies himself, but the co-pilot does not provide any answer.”

“You can hear human breathing in the cockpit up until the moment of impact,” he said, adding that the breathing did not indicate any health problem such as a heart attack.

Passengers could be heard screaming before the crash, he said.

During the descent, Mr. Robin said, air traffic controllers repeatedly tried to contact the aircraft but received no response.

Data from the plane’s transponder also suggested that the person at the controls had manually reset the autopilot to take the plane down to 96 feet from 38,000 feet, the lowest possible setting, according to an analysis by Flightradar24, a flight tracking service. The aircraft struck a mountainside at an altitude of 6,000 feet.




“We are horrified that something of this nature could have been taken place,” Carsten Spohr, the chief executive of Lufthansa and a former A320 pilot, said at a news conference in Cologne, Germany, later Thursday. “It is the worst nightmare that anyone can have in our company.” He said Lufthansa staff members received psychological and flight training.

Mr. Spohr said that there was an interruption in Mr. Lubitz’s training that lasted “a few months,” but that he did not know why or whether it was related to a medical issue.

The company was unaware of the reasons for the interruption. If there were a medical explanation for it, Mr. Spohr said, Lufthansa as his employer would not be entitled to that information because of medical secrecy rules in Germany. However, he said, Mr. Lubitz had passed his medical and psychological tests “with flying colors.” There were no questions about his skills as a pilot, he said.

Mr. Lubitz had been hired by Germanwings in September 2013, Mr. Spohr said, and was a fully licensed air transport pilot. At the time of the crash, he had 630 hours of flight experience.

Mr. Spohr said the company would review its screening procedures for pilots, even as he emphasized that he had full confidence in the company’s current policies.

Five police officers were scouring Mr. Lubitz’s apartment in Düsseldorf on Thursday afternoon at the request of French prosecutors, Markus Niesczery, a spokesman for the Düsseldorf police, said.

Earlier, a flight club based near Montabaur posted a death notice for “Andreas” on its website. “Andreas became a member of the club as a youth to fulfill his dream of flying,” the LSC Westerwald club said.

“He fulfilled his dream, the dream he now paid so dearly with his life,” the club said.

The post appeared on the site before Mr. Robin told reporters in Marseille that the co-pilot had consciously put the plane on course to land while flying over mountainous terrain with no airport in the region.

The news conference in Marseille raised the possibility of suicide. The captain, who left the cockpit, would have had to have followed a precise procedure to get back in. Assuming the cockpit door did not malfunction, analysts said, it was possible that the co-pilot could have activated a switch that would have denied the captain access to the controls for several minutes.

When Mr. Spohr was asked whether the co-pilot had committed suicide, he replied, “I am not a legal expert.” He added, “But when one person is responsible for 150 lives, it is more than suicide.”

In 1999, after a Cairo-bound EgyptAir flight crashed in the Atlantic Ocean off Nantucket, Mass., killing 217 people, investigators at the time said they suspected that the co-pilot might have attempted suicide. The United States National Transportation Safety Board, which was charged with the investigation, concluded that the crash had occurred because of the co-pilot’s “manipulation of the airplane controls,” although its report explicitly did not use the word suicide.

Stefan Schaffrath, an Airbus spokesman, said on Thursday that in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in the United States, Airbus had upgraded the reinforcements of cockpit doors on its planes in compliance with international regulations.

According to an Airbus video describing the operations of locking the cockpit door, it is locked by default when closed. But when a pilot wants to lock the cockpit door to bar access to someone outside, he or she can move the toggle to a position marked “locked,” which illuminates a red light on a numeric code keypad outside. That disables the door, keypad and the door buzzer for five minutes.

While these functions are disabled, the video shows, the only way to make contact with the crew is via an intercom. The doors can then be opened only if someone inside overrides the lock command by moving and holding the toggle switch to the “unlock” position.

If someone outside the cockpit suspects the pilot is incapacitated, that person would normally first try to establish contact via the intercom or by activating a buzzer. If those efforts were unsuccessful, the video shows, a crew member outside the cockpit would need to enter an emergency code on the keypad.

The code activates a loud buzzer and flashing light on the cockpit control panel, and it sets off a timer that unlocks the door 30 seconds later. The person outside has five seconds to enter before the door locks again.

Dominique Fouda, a spokesman for the European Aviation Safety Agency in Cologne, said that there was no regulatory requirement in Europe for a cabin crew member to be present in the cockpit when one of the pilots leaves for “physiological reasons.”

“Basically, unless they have a physiological need, they have to be in the cockpit,” he said.

Aviation safety experts said that the standards in the United States were similar, although Laura Brown, a spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration in Washington, said she could not immediately confirm this.

Mr. Spohr said Lufthansa allowed its pilots to leave the cockpit once cruising altitude had been reached, and that the captain had waited until that phase of the flight before heading into the main cabin.

As investigators continued to pore over the clues, relatives of the victims arrived on Thursday near the site of the crash, where a chapel has been set up, and where psychologists are available to provide support.

The victims included 16 high school students and two teachers who were returning to Germany from an exchange program.
