Former Malaysian PM Blames Boeing for MH370 Disaster

Former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad wanted Boeing to take responsibility for the mysterious disappearance of Malaysian Airline flight MH370. He wrote in his blog:

Boeing built this aircraft. Boeing must explain how all these means of tracking the plane can be disabled, can fail. Either Boeing technology is poor or it is not fail-safe. I would not like to fly in Boeing aircraft unless Boeing can explain how all its system can fail or be disabled.

Boeing must accept responsibility for building an aircraft that can disappear in mid-air so completely.

    What evidence does the gentleman have?Zero. Clearly it’s a desperate attempt by the former PM to redirect scrutiny/criticism away from the Malaysian govt. Dr Mahathir deserves to be censured for this irresponsible outburst
