Here, you are urged and encouraged to run your mouths about something important.

Talk about fodder for the conspiratorial mind. I'm not sure if this is being taken seriously but it seems to be coming from some top levels of government - two notions in particular. Notion #1 is that Polish officials are looking into the possibility that 'artificial fog' could have been manufactured and placed above the Smolensk airport before a Polish plane carrying that country's president and 90+ top officials, crashed on April 10th. Notion #2 is the possibility that the plane's controls may have been manipulated from the ground.

Uh, I think the possibility that there was foul play in this crash should absolutely remain on the table. As I've said before, the tragic irony and many macabre coincidences surrounding this crash definitely warrant consideration of that scenario. Russia's lack of complete transparency only fuels it.

But this struck me as an odd course of action.

Via the London Telegraph:
Poland reportedly wants access to US satellite photography that might cast new light on the weather conditions at the time of the crash, according to Gazeta Prawna, a Polish newspaper.

Prosecutors want help from American experts as to whether “there is a scientific and technical capacity to generate artificial fog”, the paper said.

Citing a source close to the investigation, the newspaper said the possibility that somebody may have created an artificial fog bank has now come under official analysis as Polish experts work to determine the causes of the tragedy.
The requests for U.S. Satellite imagery as well as exploring if the U.S. has any recordings of the cockpit recordings from NATO's Signals Monitoring Network seem very reasonable. Putting forth the suggestions that 'artificial fog' and remote control seem quite outlandish.

That said, this latest report should keep the story in the news.

Read it all.
