Remember the SHILLS

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This is an update to the Philip Wood report.

Remember the shills


If you ever get hijacked, kidnapped, or become the victim in a war or terror attack, REMEMBER THE SHILLS. Remember them if you ever manage to get a message out to the world about where you are, because they will promptly jump on it to shut you up.

No matter what the story, no matter what the circumstance, if anyone tries to get your message to the public despite the shills, those trying to help you will become the object of ridicule and the target of thousands of paid shills, who will lie, hack and cheat their way into burying the fact that you are alive, and that you managed to speak.

Such has been the case with Philip wood. And I would like to point out why.

Philip claimed to get a message out with an iphone after being separated from the rest of the people and put in a prison cell alone. And every part of what he said was shilled practically into oblivion.

The first thing the shills said was Phillip wood did not exist, but THAT was a lie.

They then said that an Iphone could never be hidden from a search, but THAT was a lie. and I promise you, no one hides a knife up their @.

They then tried to make people believe that there is no civilian cell service on Diego Garcia that Philip could have connected with, because “it’s a military base, there are no civilians there” but then Lt. Col Caggns at DOD media relations in Arlington confirmed cell service in fact IS available on Diego Garcia (go figure) because Diego Garcia has a large civilian population for such a small island, 1,600 civilians working high paying jobs. And they can’t call home. YEP. Because according to the SHILLS there can’t be a satellite linked cell tower.

They then insisted that in his @ meant up his rectum, and not just in the cheeks, where the TSA fails 70 percent of the time. And even if it was his rectum, they lied when they said it would not fit, even though Philip had five hours to think of a way to get it in there before the plane landed.

Then, after all of that was answered clearly, they then went on to say that it could never have happened because (lie) “an Iphone cannot be turned off” when it absolutely can be turned off, and that an Iphone will only last a day when turned on, when in reality if there is nothing wrong with the iphone, it can be turned on for over a week in standby easily.

You see, shills think you are stupid, SO STUPID you will believe that a high end gadget in 2014 always kills the battery in a few hours no matter what. Welcome 1970′s carbon battery.

And they could not have the real picture out there in circulation, NO. So they hacked their way into the major web site that posted it, and destroyed the exif so it had no real forensic value within a few hours, and in stupidity made it obvious by putting up a picture of a bloody body on that same web site. Let me ask, was that a threat?

People were not stupid enough to buy all the shillage, so the shills then hatched the only lie left – that the story was too perfect to be true. But how else could it be? Consider the message:

“I have been held hostage by unknown military personal after my flight was hijacked (blindfolded). I work for IBM and I have managed to hide my cellphone in my ass during the hijack. I have been separated from the rest of the passengers and I am in a cell. My name is Philip Wood. I think I have been drugged as well and cannot think clearly.”

Let’s dissect that. “I have been held hostage by unknown military personal after my flight was hijacked (blindfolded).” If this was a hoax given what was known by all the zit picking kids out there, the message would have instead said “I have been held hostage by American forces after my plane was hijacked. I am in Diego Garcia. But he does not know who his captors are, and that is a total green light for the story being true, because they sure as heck would never tell him. And he obviously did not know where he was.

The kicker? He was blindfolded. The Army will blindfold people with a locked bag over the head that the people they put it on can’t get off, to leave their hands free when they have been judged to not be a threat. Once in the cell, they took the handcuffs off because he was not a threat, he was the victim and they left the bag to avoid being identified. Philip, who may have been beta testing the latest IBM voice recognition software or using the voice recognition abilities of the Iphone, swiped the screen correctly to turn it on and then talked to it to get it logged in somewhere to get his message out because he could not see the screen. THE KICKER IS THAT IT IS OBVIOUSLY A VOICE RECOGNITION MESSAGE. IT’S CHOPPY AND THE WORD PERSONNEL WAS INTERPRETED AS THE WORD PERSONAL. THE TWO ARE TOO DIFFERENT FOR THAT TO BE A TYPO, VOICE ASSISTED SOFTWARE OBVIOUSLY DID THAT ERROR.

So, the first line of what he said FITS PERFECT.

“I work for IBM and managed to hide my cellphone in my ass during the hijack”. Shills ripped this, saying he would not have bothered with where he worked. That is a load of BUNK. If he was flying to Bejing, he was most likely on a business flight for work, and wanted to make clear who he was so there would be no mistake. And where else would he put the cell phone other than his ass? in his ear? his pee hole? Come on now, that shillage was thin.

So the second line could not have been any different in a real scenario

“I have been separated from the rest of the passengers and am in a cell” The fact that he waited to be separated from the rest of the passengers to get the message out is absolutely the way it would have been, before separation they would have been closely watching all the passengers and he did not risk losing his phone while under close scrutiny. Once in the cell, the cell prevents escape and would not have immediate supervision. THAT would be the time to dial out.

So the third line is exactly the way it would be, because Phil is a smart guy, he works for IBM in database security and knew when to try to reach the outside world.

“My name is Philip Wood. I think I have been drugged as well and cannot think clearly” That supports the story extremely well, American forces unilaterally drug all prisoners.

BOTTOM LINE? THE STORY WASHES. And NEVER FORGET what the shills did to this if you ever end up in trouble, if you ever try to call out you had better hope no one in a high position of power in America or Israel can benifit from shutting you up, because they will if they can.

Philip was probably just an average guy. He probably believes CNN and that arabs did 911. He probably thinks America is a beacon of freedom and truth, and really believed that if his message hit a blog somewhere it would go viral. He snapped a picture and sent it, knowing his Iphone would send his location. But that did not work, because everything he believed about American freedom, evil arabs, and everything else CNN pushes was a lie.

There will be no rescue for Philip wood, because the liars, hackers, shills and war department media made good and sure that will never happen despite the fact that he did get a message out. Phil will have his mind destroyed so he will never be able to speak up again, and be used to push a mop for the rest of his life if he is lucky.

And if phil managed to get a message out to anyone in his family, they would have been detained or killed instantly and kept silent, but that probably did not happen because all calls would have been censored. All log ins to any accounts he had blocked. The only hope for phil was an anonymous blog that did not require log in.


So if you ever find yourself in Phil’s position, REMEMBER THE SHILLS, THE HACKERS, THE LIARS AND CHEATS, they will number in the thousands and will hatch any lie possible to screw public opinion against you no matter what message you get out, REMEMBER THEM, THEY WORK FOR A PAYCHECK AND THEY WILL NOT GIVE A DAMN ABOUT YOU.





Shills are now using the approach “the message is too perfect” because they can’t answer to what is here. But the message is exactly what I would expect from an intelligent person who has been captured, FAKE would be: My plane was hijacked by American and British military people. I am on Diego Garcia. I have been tortured. Please help. In Philips message, he does not know where he is or who is holding him. Anyone faking the message would certainly say Diego Garcia and American/British forces. The fact that Philip does not know anything about his captors FITS TOTALLY with the message being authentic.


The picture now referenced has been hacked, with the Exif modified.  They basically destroyed the photo to discredit this.  The original photo was 4k larger and had the Exif in a completely different format.  I am working on resolving this.  I guess I should have expected this and watched for it.


Right now the American intelligence front is frantic on the blogs, attempting to find any way to slam this. They are testing any possible way to convince people this is not true, and will run with whatever works. Don’t let that fool you, use your brain with what is here and think for yourself.


The blindfold:

The man claimed to be blindfolded when he sent the message. When the American military blindfolds someone, it is accomplished by putting a bag over the head that is locked so you can’t get it off. This left the engineers hands free. This would have made it possible for him to pull his Iphone 5 (a fact confirmed by the Exif data) out of his butt as stated, and use the voice command ability of the Iphone to just talk to it to log in and post the message. This explains why he sent a black photo, he could not see what he was sending, he just knew he snapped a photo and sent whatever got taken.

The coordinates:When the coordinates are added to the fact that the photo’s exif data does not match the Google coordinates or any other coordinates for Diego Garcia that are posted online, but is still within the boundaries of Diego Garcia, it proves that no one just pulled those coordinates off the web. It helps confirm that this was not just a hoax because the coordinates are exact to wherever on Diego Garcia the Iphone was when it took the photo.




UPDATE:  Jpeg now provided because the Linkdin account is now censored by region and does not work in all areas


This image, which appears black was posted as taken in a dark cell by an IBM engineer. The picture is black because the cell was too dark, but a critical piece of information was embedded in the Exif data, the coordinates to Diego Garcia, where the picture was taken. And it’s real, this is NOT a hoax. The coordinates in the picture indicate that the photo was taken within 3 miles of what Google officially gives for Diego Garcia. It is NOT EXACTLY what comes up on Google. It is off a couple miles, so NO ONE GOOGLED THIS, thus helping to confirm it’s authenticity.  Diego Garcia is big enough to have a runway be hard to see in full frame pictures of the island, so a 3 mile radius fits.


The picture posted with the following text: “I have been held hostage by unknown military personal after my flight was hijacked (blindfolded). I work for IBM and I have managed to hide my cellphone in my ass during the hijack. I have been separated from the rest of the passengers and I am in a cell. My name is Philip Wood. I think I have been drugged as well and cannot think clearly.”

MY COMMENT: The Exif is intact. Exif data gets embedded in every image by every camera and includes the circumstances under which the photo was taken. It can be viewed by saving the image to your desktop, and then right clicking it and selecting image properties. Hit the details tab. You can see that the image was taken on March 18 with an Iphone 5, with the ISO at 3200 and a shutter of 1/15. The coordinates are included in the exif data because the Iphone knows where it is, and the coordinates are for Diego Garcia.

Obviously I cannot confirm this 100 percent as real,  but I do know that Exif can’t be rewritten with common software without a trace, ALL software leaves a note in the application tag that says the picture was modified by an  application.  Exif  can be erased as well but NOT CHANGED WITHOUT A TRACE.  Photos with the exif from the original imaging device intact AND UNCHANGED will hold up in court. If the Exif is hacked and this is not real, the CIA or a really good hacker did this, which I doubt, I’d say it’s probably real.  The image exif clearly shows that the Iphone camera itself was the last thing that did anything with the image.  An external app never touched it.

Surrounding this story is the fact that the man who managed to get this information to Farganne was harassed and received many threatening voice mails over it, that is another piece of evidence pointing to this as being real.  I cannot stress how important it is that the GPS coordinates in the photo do not perfectly match what Google or anything else on the web says, because it proves that the source of those coordinates did not come from google or another web site, they really did come from the imaging device and prove that it was in fact taking the photo in Diego Garcia.


DEBUNK ATTEMPTS AND UPDATES I did not want to post, but now have to because of the way certain people took this. Iphone won’t fit? That is SILLY. From an E.R. doctor who pulled a 12 inch long 8 inch wide salami out of an idiot´s butt

OTHER DEBUNK ATTEMPTS: If anything was used to re-tag this image, it would say so in the software tag of the image. Any time software modifies any aspect of the image, the last thing to touch the image gets put in the software tag. The Iphone’s standard software is in the image tag and nothing else. That means this image has NOT been re-tagged and that is the FIRST THING I checked before posting this story. And NO, YOU CANNOT MODIFY IT WITH A PROGRAMMING EDITOR UNLESS YOU ARE A MACHINE LANGUAGE GENIUS. Open notepad (which is a basic programming editor). Drag the photo into notepad. it will open as code. The Exif is all machine code. This is the NSA type hack I talked about, unless the NSA or a serious hacker wanted to do this, the photo is legit. And the surrounding circumstances also show this story to be legit.

A non shill question: Diego Garcia is a military installation. Are there civilians on the island? ANSWER: YES, 1,600 of them. And they have cell phones no doubt. Civilian cell service would be there. And what about all the military spouses? They would be there too, and NOT in the military but (possibly) listed as military. They have phones as well, Diego Garcia would not be a black hole.

Non shill comment: Geosetter can modify exif. I did it, I changed the location in the picture. My comment: Did Geosetter erase the Iphone O.S. version? It should have, and that would prove the photo fake. Above, all that data is perfectly intact. All software I have seen will say it modified a photo. Since Geosetter is public domain it should say it had the image and produced it with the Iphone O.S. data either added to or removed entirely. Absent this, Geosetter would be a hacker app.

BLOCKBUSTER UPDATE AGAIN: This got posted to 4chan and was pulled immediately, but 4plebs, an independently run backup of 4chan which is NOT controlled has the original on archive, and the date of posting matches the photo. BINGO! read it HERE. This answers the question why the photo only surfaced recently. Someone surfing archives found it. 4chan would be absolutely a PRIME choice for someone in trouble.


More Debunks answered

There was no Philip wood working for IBM – this one was really poor. This was the very first debunk posted anywhere, and it’s so thin and transparent well, if you get fooled by that one let’s just say I am not going to help you by linking out AGAIN. Re read the article please

The exif data was hacked -

That would debunk the whole story, but it is not the case. Actually untraceably changing exif is not that easy. ALL LEGITIMATE SOFTWARE, EVERY LAST BIT OF IT OUT THERE, WILL SAY IT HAD THE PICTURE AND PRODUCED IT IF IT IS SAVED WITH THAT SOFTWARE. THERE ARE NO SUCH FINGERPRINTS ON PHILIP’S IMAGE. Most people do not even know what exif data is. From my experience I would say that fewer 9 out of 10 people have heard of it. Of the fewer than 10 percent who have, most will be photographers.

I have been doing photography and known about exif since the beginning of digital photography. And there have been times, for the sake of sending messages secretly embedded in Jpegs or claiming ownership of images, I have wanted to hack exif at least enough to pull entire Jpegs into programming editors to see if there was anything I could tweak. Except for a few notes in the Jpeg, the exif is machine language. That’s pretty tough to work with and even most who work as professional programmers can’t do it which makes that scenario highly implausible. And software like photoshop ALWAYS changes the software tag and claims full ownership of the image. So even though there are applications that can edit exif, they always leave a trace in the software tag. The photo posted by Philip had no such changes to the software tag.

If the image posted by Philip is NOT legit, it would have taken someone with an ability to write machine language to modify it without a trace, or a hacker with an obscure app to do it, and I call bunk on that because those types of people are small in number and have better things to do than hatch b.s. on the web. This was NOT done by a teenager for a week end prank. It would be a very small number of people that actually managed to do it, as I said all along – CIA/NSA types or really good hackers. And I seriously doubt that prospect.

The only thing I have a question for with regard to how this got posted to begin with is WHY 10 days? This posted on the 18th, and that’s quite a while after the event. There is no doubt the Iphone was NOT up philip’s butt the entire time. So now we get into guessing games about why it took 10 days. My guess? Somehow for a period of time Philip was tied up under close supervision but not closely supervised at the toilet. After the initial search he put the phone in a more comfortable position in his pants but did not call. And it took 10 days for him to finally get separated from the other people as stated in the message and have enough privacy to send a message out.

Why post to 4chan rather than call home? That’s pretty easy to explain. The NSA would have blocked Philips number from reaching anyone of importance in his life. They do it to my phones all the time, to such an extent I gave up on cell phones, they are useless for me. And even Claudia’s phones have been cut off from receiving calls from family members, the NSA does that just to isolate people who are dissenters. Flight 370 would have been handled. E-mails? Ditto. Facebook and others that require log in? DITTO. That left only totally public blogs that did not require log in to get a message out, and 4chan is one of those.

Those are the TWO legitimate questions I can think of that people could actually ask about how and why, the rest – such as you could never get a phone up your ass when you are a really smart guy who would have noticed the plane turned around and the pilot on the intercom saying the plane has been hijacked and now you have FIVE FULL HOURS TO THINK OF SOMETHING BEFORE THE PLANE LANDS, come on now, ONE guy out of 230 figured something out. The whole argument about how the phone made it is in my opinion silly.

The bottom line is that the arguments against the story are a whole lot weaker than the arguments supporting it, and when you add to that the fact that my web site got hacked repeatedly and someone even managed to get a back ground image of a bloody body strewn all the way through it for a few hours Saturday night, well, hackers don’t have my log ins, only the NSA or other high level gov types would because I am too good with passwords (they are typically un hackable ones like N532r689$^// and with hackers they won’t fix it right when they think I am going to log on, they will leave it up. It got fixed without me doing anything, I never knew about it until someone told me. That would be a back stab by an intelligence agency, WHY WOULD THIS STORY BE THAT IMPORTANT IF IT WAS B.S.? They don’t just pull that type of stunt out of the blue.

And the shillage was MASSIVE on this one, with outright lies that were very weak early on, evolving into other lies that were harder to dismiss, and now they are focusing on the exif and whether or not it can be changed without a trace. Well, my answer is above and was always in the original post, and it is the RIGHT ANSWER, YES, BY HACKERS AND INTELLIGENCE AGENCY TYPES, BUT NOT BY WEEKEND JOE AND THAT MAKES THAT ARGUMENT WEAK. Ultimately I guess anyone who worked in the right places could do anything, including walking up to you cloaked by the latest technology and hitting you in the head with a bean bag. But the preponderance of evidence weighs heavily in favor of this all being legit, and that is what I am sticking with.

      if you go to, there is a link at the bottom for the employee directory… I searched for “Philip wood” and it returned no results – just sharing this info


        The plot thickens.

          i made a point about scrutinising the passenger list! for black ops or military personell boarding as passengers! it was not listed?

          Phillip Wood is on the official passenger list:

          How do you get a smart phone into – and then retrieve it from your ass? How the hell do you maintain a charge? I’m certain that plane is on the ground somewhere, but this doesn’t sound plausible, it’s been weeks. My phone won’t keep a charge all day in “weak” cell coverage.

        • DK

          @Ted – amazing how long your phone will keep a charge in standby on AIRPLANE mode, it is at the end of the charge life at 225 – 250 hours, the battery will have to be new but that is 9 – 11 days !

          How did he retrieve the phone back out? If it’s gone deeper inside, he most likely won’t be able to retrieve it back out without some help. Seriously.


        • Satoshi Nakamoto

          I agree given the number of shills trying to demonize this message it must be true, one recurring argument is you can get an a little iPHone up your ass, that reminds of one the internet was first public there was a site called, and they had a photo of a guy that got a FIRE-HYDRANT stuck up his ass, now think about that, this kind has a fire hydrant stuck up his and the morons here are questioning somebody getting a tiny little iPhone in his glory hole.

          My first thought was that Philip Wood was CIA contractor for IBM, but given the mystery and he was the only american male ( 3 usa I think? ) me thinks he gained confidence, and then waited until he knew he was alone, and then sent his message, of course nobody can help him, cuz only the Russians or CHINESE could invade DG, and that would be an act of war, but at least he got his message out, and this will be remembered forever.

        Malaysia Airlines Flight 370: Hijacking theory gives relatives hope

        By Barbara Demick

        March 16, 2014

        The possibility that Malaysia Air Flight 370 was hijacked has heartened the relatives of passengers who are holding out hope that the missing plane landed in some remote location, perhaps a tropical island.

        “My gut feeling is that it landed. I still feel his spirit. I don’t feel he is dead,” said Sarah Bajc, a 48-year-old American teacher living in Beijing whose partner, Philip Wood, a 50-year-old IBM executive, was a passenger on the flight…..

        It is indeed not a coincidence, that those top Chinese MILITARY Scientists from Freescale and other companies , and this lone IBM Enginner, Wood here, on MH370, are link to that most powerful Zionist who founded nuclear-armed Israel, Rothschild , through the two major defence contrators, IBM and Freescale! See – , How The Rothschild Dynasty Operates; and at , The Federal Reserve Cartel: Freemasons and The House of Rothschild, By Dean Henderson, Global Research, June 08, 2011 !

        now what is interesting is that I had somebody do a search on the internal email directory, and it did in fact return a person by this name in the US… the person is not comfortable providing any more detail, just confirming that a person by that name is in the system

          The article at LATimes that “Inang” linked to above confirms Phil Wood is a “50-year-old IBM executive” AND was a passenger on MH370.

          He is also listed on the passenger list at:

          @ELOREGONIAN – Thats ironic you mentioned that! I did exactly that, I increased the saturation and played with a few other dials, and I got what appears to be the upper torso sitting down leaning forward. I don’t know if its just matrixing or not, but it immediately stood out to me.

          I can see what looks like upper shoulders and head, with arms coming forward, almost as if they were sitting with their elbows on their knees. I will try to upload the image, or someone else can do the exact same thing.

          I increased the saturation 100%, increased the contrast and tint. Things start to be defined within the picture.

        • Satoshi Nakamoto

          You can open the file with Microsoft photo manager that comes with office,and do an auto-color correction and you will get an image, after that you can diddle with the image and re-colorize with the options.

          If the guy was in a blacked out room, the photo isn’t black, but image looks like Hillary Clinton IMHO and that’s not a good thing.

      • The Real Deal


        Hey man, good work getting this out there. Your site being hacked like that proves that you must be on to something. If the NSA is doing the hacking, that means they must have been contacted by the shadow U.S. gov’t, and given orders to hack your site so this message has a harder time getting out. But the cat is out of the bag now. I do not believe that 777 just disappeared or crashed. It is telling that Israel has an exact replica of that plane in a hangar in Tel Aviv. Not sure why Israel would need a Malaysian 777. Seems to me if Israel had just purchased the plane, they would have quickly painted their own airlines logo on there and sent it back up to make them some money. 777′s can carry quite a large number of passengers. Something is not right, and if this is a hoax, well…it’s quite an elaborate one. Keep up the good work.

    • ghost

      if indeed there is any truth in this! and the plane was taken over by military personell! then of course they would have needed to board as passengers! therefore a thorough look into every passengers affiliations and backgrounds should yeild some clues!

    • Andrew Bourdain

      How do you shove an iPhone up your backside whilst wearing jeans and military hijackers are watching every move? These will not just be militia they will be highly trained black ops if this is the case. How do you type perfectly on an iPhone blindfolded? Close your eyes and try it…

        Read the article as many times as it takes for you to understand how that is explained, more than once, in the article.

        Nothing about this has been proven at all and you are flat out irresponsible in thinking that EXIF data cannot be edited except by some CIA super hacker. EXIF data is easily edited by free tools that can be found easily on the web. Download something like EXIF Pilot and give it a try yourself. Continuing to perpetuate this hoax or as you say “I AM GOING TO SCREW THIS HOME LIKE A SPERM WHALE.” is very irresponsible. Do some due diligence and take a deep breath. I know you are excited thinking that you have a major4 scoop but this isn’t major because it’s a fraud and you’ve been taken in by it. I think it’s great that you are doing some investigative journalism but apparently you didn’t investigate this very much before you starting humping like a whale on it. Do the research and then you can retract this while you may still have some credibility left to pursue other leads.

      There are so many weird and credible leads in this mystery, that it is beginning to look like some kind of supernatural theater, and in a remarkably strange way so. It keeps having strong evidence and bearing hallmarks for each of either natural air disaster, intelligence plot or false flag preparation, corporate crime, pilot suicide, terrorist attack or preparation of it, intelligence manipulated terrorist attack etc.

      On the part of its timeline, it is odd that it occurred overlapping the Ukraine crisis, stealing half of the attention of the world media from it, that it would have else received. If this was an act of God, I believe that its purpose was to allow Russia to seize Crimea peacefully, because on the other case, a world war could have erupted spontaneously. I guess the world war is anyway near at the door, but for some reason it was just not yet the time.

      Or, is it possible that this delayment and loss in media coverage will create even more tensions between the super powers so that the crisis will turn out to be impossible to solve, if one wants to believe in the power of the media in easing the tensions via public dialogue, even if it wouldn’t achieve well in objectivity and being neutral. In that case, the flight mystery serves to speed up the end of the suffering for the world, which is dangerously prone to collapse politically and socially in a massive way – anyway.

      I believe the mystery is a divine intervention, because when they happen, they have the most meaning when the world’s existence is at stake, or when the world is too evil and corrupted to maintain itself in a sane way, if one wants to seek sanity from the history, or the present time, of the world.

      Everybody knows that the plane went to Diego Garcia. Your a fool if you believe anything else. Its that 2 mm computer with RAM,ROM and clock that they are after. 3 of the patent holders were on that plane, the other is the Texas Corporation. The patent is applied for not passed. That Nano computer is the key. The two Iranians got a good deal for their tickets if they were even on the plane. There are some sick puppies out in the real world. Their Elite Deviant Behavior is palatable

      • SDCAUSA

        What is the patent number of the patent you are talking about? So far I’ve seen stories with two different patents that have nothing to do with any kind of chip and on both of those the listed inventors were definitely not on the plane. Do you have a link to the patent application or a credible source with more information about that angle?

        Another thing to consider, when you work for a company, even though you are listed as an inventor that doesn’t mean that you are equally entitled to all revenue from that patent. Most tech companies have contracts that spell out in detail what kind of compensation you will receive for being an inventor and in every case I’ve been involved in the inventors received compensation that was nowhere near an equal share of the revenue from the patent. They may get raises or bonuses but it’s not like any company is going to give the 3 guys on the patent each 25% of the revenue and while the company gets the remaining 25%, that’s simply not the way it works.

        The plane may indeed have gone to Diego Garcia but nothing in this article proves that in any way and would not stand up to even the simplest legal standard for “100% Proof” as the author states. This blog posting and the attached image are fake and do not prove the plane is or ever was on Diego Garcia.

        • DK


          1, The patent is listed on this site however the patent holders were not listed as passengers under their own names.

          2, Depends on your contract, if you are working for your own independent lab under contract etc. More senior PHD levels have the right to publicity, public acclaim and rights.

          3, By your own standards niether the blog posting or the attached image are fake, they are mearly not proven in the same way a claim of 100% Proof is not Proof. Supporting evidence is required.

        • SDCAUSA


          The link to the story you included has a link to the patent which goes to a page that is 404, not found. But it does list the patent number which is easy to search in the Google patent archive. Here’s a direct link to that patent:

          It has nothing at all to do with a 2mm microprocessor. It is a patent for improving a manufacturing process to increase die yields. And, the inventors listed on this patent were not on the plane. This is one of the 2 patents I mentioned I had already looked into related to this story.

          The patent was granted Mar 11, 2014.

          Furthermore, Freescale and Blackrock are both publicly traded companies so the theory that since these inventors, if they were on the plane, were killed in the process so then Freescale could steal their patent rights so that Jacob Rothschild now owns the patent is about the thinnest connection one could make. Yes, Rothschild is on the advisory board of Blackrock but he is not a majority shareholder of Blackrock and definitely not a majority shareholder of Freescale so the benefit to him is minimal.

          As you note there are some situations where the inventors will share more of the revenue related to a patent bu7t that is en extremely rare situation and in those cases the right of survivorship is part of the deal. So, upon the inventor’s death, the asset is still owned by that person’s estate so in that case their death is not an event that transfers full ownership back to the sole remaining shareholder. The patent you have listed here is not the type of groundbreaking patent you’d normally see that kind of deal done on.

          So about the best we can say is: The patent has nothing to do with some new amazing processor, it’s for a rather pedestrian process improvement. It’s inventors weren’t on the plane. So, Freescale won’t be the sole shareholder because the inventors listed on this patent are still alive somewhere because they weren’t on the plane. Even if Freescale did somehow become the sole shareholder, that doesn’t mean that Jacob Rothschild is the major benefactor.

          I’d love to see a conspiracy theory involved in this case. However this is another on of those elements which has been splashed around enough, trying to make it sound more and more important at every turn and yet every time I do the easy to do due diligence on the story, it comes up false. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof and in this instance, there is no proof at all, it’s just another set of very easy to refute claims.

        • eagererin

          I read the patent was for electronic weaponry, a airplane cloaking device, that new owner Jacob Rothschild suddenly just registered. That’s obviously damning, if true. Why do the richest people on the planet need the money, if this was the sole reason for the hijack? I know they’re evil, but to take so many innocent lives? And to involve the paid US military in their wicked scheme? The text seems feasible to me. Otherwise, the shills wouldn’t be trying to discredit it so vehemently.

        • DK


          Please show where i stated that rules of Inheritance of the deceased estate do not apply to patents, copyrighted works etc. The Patent was submitted in the US so those laws will apply which are nominal for the US State in which the applicant applied for the protection, and which Federal statutes apply. Do not read more into what is said, I have gone throgh this process and the applicants have probably done as I have, used the Patent application as publicity for their work – if the devices were defense related they would never come to light.

          We also do not know for sure if these people were on the plane as I CLEARLY stated, if they boarded it was under Pseudonyms, they are not on the passenger list so this is an inference by Jimstonefreelance is without the proper supporting evidence, i.e. the whereabouts of the actual Inventors, if they are at home and reading this – please write in to BIN to prove you are alive and well.

          I am not really interested in what the patent was, just the passengers wellbeing.

          P.S. I am in the UK and the page is not blocked, try TOR and if you get through ask why it is being blocked in the US.

        • SDCAUSA


          You can read the patent here:

          It covers a way to increase yields of dies in a semiconductor production operation. I know that many people have tried to make that patent out to be something really whiz bang but whenever they do and then they post this patent number I just have to chuckle. That patent really isn’t anything earth shattering and certainly not worth killing 239 innocent passengers over.

          Furthermore, even if the 4 passengers were on the plane, which they were not, the sole surviving shareholder would be Freescale Corporation. Freescale is a publicly traded company so it is owned by it’s shareholders. Jacob Rothschild may be one of those shareholders but he certainly DOES NOT OWN FREESCALE, nor does he own Blackrock, which is another one of the many shareholders of Freescale.

          So, what you’ve read about this patent being some amazing piece of military technology is not true. The part about Jacob Rothschild isn’t true. The part about the 4 inventors being on the airplane isn’t true.

          As far as the rest of this post goes, the guy who’s telling you that it is 100 PERCENT PROVEN TRUE. He also tells you that it’s impossible to edit EXIF data on an image without being some uber hacking computer expert when it’s very easy to download a free tool from the internet and edit the GPS location coordinates of any image you’d like to in 1 minute.

          So, maybe the important thing to consider is whether you should believe what you have read prior to now about the patent, Rothschild and the Phillip Wood story or maybe you should take a few minutes to do some of your own due diligence and try to sort out the facts for yourself. These are two huge pieces that are thrown around with some authority and certainly amazing frequency by folks who believe that a conspiracy was perpetrated here. However, these two pieces of the “story” are incredibly easy to debunk.

          I’d love to see a good conspiracy theory surrounding this. I haven’t yet and these two parts of the story are so easy to show as false. I’ll keep looking for something that makes sense, but these pieces do not.

    • 14west1

      The picture contains coordinates in EXIF:
      North or South Latit|S
      Latitude | 7, 18, 58.308907
      East or West Longitu|E
      Longitude |72, 25, 35.5591

      This is 72deg 25min 35.5 seconds. Or 25.59265 minutes.
      I calculate the location as this (type into google maps and see where it lands):
      72 25.59265E, 7 18.9713S

      It is in a building on Diego Garcia. I don’t know why the author is saying that the coordinates are not accurate.

      • BrianNYR

        indeed they were accurate, good simple check :razz:

      • The Real Deal

        I too checked the coordinates with Google Earth.

        Damn, that building is LITERALLY just off the runway at Diego Garcia. That’s a big building. Could easily hold those passengers. Pretty much confirms what a lot of us had suspected all along, that they landed that plane at Diego Garcia. This is getting crazy.

        • SDCAUSA

          Whikle those coordinates may correspond with a building on Diego Garcia, it’s criminally simple to edit any image’s EXIF data to reflect any GPS coordinates you want with free tools that are available on the web. So, those coordinates being in this image proves absolutely nothing. The author went far out on a limb when he claims

          “Obviously I cannot confirm this 100 percent as real, but I do know that exif can’t be rewritten with common software, it can only be either completely removed or added to on some of the lines, such as image credits, with some applications and that photos with the exif intact will hold up in court because the other data fields cannot be edited, they can only be erased.. If the Exif is hacked and this is not real, the CIA or a really good hacker did this, which I doubt, I’d say it’s probably real.”

          He later adds: “That means this image has NOT been re-tagged and that is the FIRST THING I checked before posting this story. And NO, YOU CANNOT MODIFY IT WITH A PROGRAMMING EDITOR UNLESS YOU ARE A MACHINE LANGUAGE GENIUS. Open notepad (which is a basic programming editor). Drag the photo into notepad. it will open as code. The Exif is all machine code. This is the NSA type hack I talked about, unless the NSA or a serious hacker wanted to do this, the photo is legit.”

          I don’t know anyone in the know that would open an image in Notepad, since it is a TEXT EDITOR, it opens everything as text, which is what the underlying file format of an image is. However, if you use an EXIF Editor, the image is opened showing a preview of the image along with all of the associated EXIF tags in an easy to edit format. There is no stamp of any kind added to the image that shows that you have made an edit. You simply click on the tag, change it to what you want and then save it and the change is made. I could take any image anyone wants to post here and do the edits in 1 minute.

          This does nto require NSA or CIA level hacking skills and anyone that claims it does has lost major credibility right off the bat. After making that completely uninformed statement, anything that person says I’d have to take with a serious grain of salt.

          I’d love to know that these folks were safe and alive being held hostage somewhere. BUT there is absolutely nothing in the original image, the plebs forum post or this article that makes any kind of credible case that this is a fact. In fact, given all the loose ends, it’s easy for me to conclude that this is a hoax and people shouldn’t waste any further energy on this and begin trying to find real leads that can be followed to prove the the theory.

      Don’t be too quick to dismiss something like this.

      If they were hijacked by the government, it’s entirely plausible that someone on board managed to thwart them, at least temporarily.

      After all, many of these people are VERY smart. They are engineers and professionals from top notch international firms.

      If prisoners can figure out how to outsmart police and guards, it’s plausible that these people could do it as well.

      Also, we make the mistake sometimes of making our enemies out to be supermen. In reality, they are just and fallible as the rest of us, and prone to mistakes.

      I would be very keen to examine any evidence showing these people were able to get some information out.

          There is nothing about this scenario, the image, the post on plebs or this article that pass the least amount of scrutiny. This whole thing is totally false. I wish some people would start thinking for themselves instead of being sheeple and accepting this at face value before doing even the most minimal amount of due diligence.

During Vietnam (both Tet offensives) I would fly Air America (CIA) to R&R. Great bunch! (So I thought.)

          This is the wrong forum for spilling ‘the WHOLE truth’ (as it were), but I will say our small group of Unix, BSD and LINUX console virtuosos spent about 7 hours yesterday hacking through some amazing BS to arrive at pretty much the same conclusions as did you, I won’t bore you with the details except to say we were all pissed when we discovered your (Earlier) post.

          We require four separate confirmations to build a fact. I have a very poor ‘phone-side manner,’ but we have a young lady with the sweetest voice and toughest questions who almost got hired by Rolls Royce while tracing engine information frequencies and data paths. We have ONE confirmed report about body-bags and a small steel hull vessel used to carry away and deep-six the evidence from Diego Garcia. Not enough confirmation to call this one.

      This DISTRESS by Philip Woods message sounds more and more be possible – how can the world check Diego GarCIA?! We got to SAVEhim and others – look at how afraid these monsters, suspectedly ZIONIST/Mossad-led Satanic Illuminati Cabal’s collaborators from CIA-MI6-NATO are – by trying to tarnish/silence Wood and now, Jim Stone so nastily (through CIA Disinformation project)! And I suspect those top Chinese Scientists from Freescale and this lone IBM Scientist, Wood here, on MH370, are still held as captives in Diego Garcia, to develop some kind of super technology for future nuclear warfare with Russia and China, and then possibly will be eliminated!

      For goodness sake, it is simply ILLOGICAL that the the CIA-Australian jointly operated super-secret Satellite base at Pine Gap and Jindalee, supposedy did NOT detect MH370 flying over the Indian Ocean right from the beginning, despite that the Pentagon was confident enough to claim that the plane has crashed into the Indian Ocean within the first week after Diego GarCIA was exposed by alternative medias.

      Read this informative news about that secret Satellite base in Australia at, Could vital info be Down Under?, By HARIS HUSSAIN AND FARRAH NAZ KARIM, 19 March 2014.

      Thus, the Australian victims’ families should demand answer from their Australian Govt. since as we know, the most VILE CIA is untouchable, by the American people, the UN or the already Satanic-Illuminati-enslaved world on the whole!

      And true indeed, what happen to the presumably super-technology Satellite system at Diego Garcia itself?! See

      British Indian Ocean Territory

      Due to its geographic location in proximity to the equator with unobstructed views to the horizon, Diego Garcia has access to a relatively large number of geosynchronous satellites over the Indian and eastern Atlantic Oceans, and the island is home to Diego Garcia Station (DGS), a remote tracking station making up part of the Air Force Satellite Control Network…..

      ….Notice they have completely erased all posts between March 6th, and March 9th. There is some very weird stuff going on down in creepy Diego Garcia, a place where the US operates completely independant of the constitution…… The fact that no flight were scheduled for 3 days during the time MH370 went missing, all maintenance crew most likely were off on leave.

      Holy smokes. I downloaded the picture, extracted the exif information with exiftool, and plugged the coordinates (-7°18’58.31″, 72°25′ 35.56″) into Google Earth. Yup, it’s a building just off the southeast end of the runway on Diego Garcia.

      The image creation date and time are 2014:03:18 20:49:41. There’s no indication what time zone that refers to. If the phone was set to automatically update time and date to the local network, then presumably that’s Diego Garcia time.

      The exposure data indicates that the picture was taken in the dark. Of course, if one had a black hood over his head one would not know if he was in the dark or not.

      This post is absolutely fake!

      First off, EXIF data does not need to be hacked by some CIA level uber hacker. You can find free EXIF editing tools easily by doing a Google search. Then you can take any image you want and change the GPS coordinates, and various dates to be anything you want them to be.

      Prove it to yourself, download EXIF Pilot and click on the image, it’ll bring up all the fields you want to look at and/or edit. You can make the GPS coordinates whatever you want them to be. Any good hoaxer would know to alter the GPS coordinates slightly so that it didn’t use the coordinates shown on the Diego Garcia Wiki page.

      However where this hoaxer went awry was that when he edited the dates, he change two of them to be the same but another of them to be off by 19 minutes. Using EXIF pilot, check it out, DateTimeOriginal and DateTimeDigitized are the same but DateTime is another 19 minutes later. In every one of hundreds of iPhone 5 pictures I checked these entries were always the same, there is no explicable reason they’d be different unless they were messed with. Also the PixelXDimension is 240 and the PixelYDimension is 320. They should be 3264 and 2448 respectively.

      Now think through the scenario again, somehow you’ve shoved your iPhone up your butt, somehow retrieved it when you’re blindfolded and handcuffed and gotten away with taking this picture. What do you do next? Do you TEXT YOUR GIRLFRIEND DIRECTLY or do you login to an obscure message board (plebs) and make a post and hope that someone sees it and is able to track down your girlfriend and the authorities to save you. Or, since you are supposedly using voice, maybe have SIRI CALL YOUR GIRLFRIEND. If this post is to be believed, he did not dial out, he somehow got a web connection but if he could post to plebs forum, texting the girlfriend would have been even easier, much more direct and guaranteed to bring the cavalry a whole hell of a lot faster.

      As much as I’d love to see a conspiracy theory out of this story at this point, posts like this are simple hoaxes at best and could be flat out disinformation posted by nefarious actors who want the conspiracy folks to get all wound up and post stuff that is so easy for them to discredit. REPEAT: EXIF DATA IS EASY TO EDIT. You do not need to be a serious hacker to edit it, IT EASY TO DO WITH FREE TOOLS.

      • AgainstEVILZionist-MASTERMIND-of-IlluminatiNWO

        Excuse me, maybe by texting online, more people will see it! Besides, he’s probbaly afraid they will do something to his GIRLFRIEND too – since he knows the SYSTEM is involved!

        • SDCAUSA

          The EXIF data still does not add up, it HAS BEEN EDITED.

          I also do not believe anyone would use plebs forum to randomly post a request for help. Why not Twitter or Facebook? But, in a situation where you really are being held hostage and you’re hiding your iPhone in your butt, you’re going to contact your girlfriend, family or someone else in your message book, NOT go through the time and effort to post to a web forum, which would take much longer and exponentially increase the chance that you’d get caught in the process.

        • AgainstEVILZionist-MASTERMIND-of-IlluminatiNWO

          You’re bringing up ridicilous petty stuff whilst ignoring, too conveniently, the data info from this article!

      • Warren

        Of course exif data can be hacked. Darned near everything can be hacked. That doesn’t mean it WAS hacked.

        The picture resolution issue is easy to explain. Many multimedia message servers (MMS) won’t and don’t send full resolution images. They limit file sizes. For example, AT&T won’t send a file bigger than 600kb through the MMS. So, phones have to rescale images to something less than that to send them through the MMS servers.

        The time difference between when the picture was taken (2014:03:18 20:49:41) and the time it was modified (2014:03:18 21:08:34) might be explained as the time between he took the full-resolution image, and some time later when he felt it was safe to speak to sari and have the picture and message sent – at which time the picture was rescaled and the modification time updated.

        • SDCAUSA

          First off the article says this:

          “Obviously I cannot confirm this 100 percent as real, but I do know that exif can’t be rewritten with common software, it can only be either completely removed or added to on some of the lines, such as image credits, with some applications and that photos with the exif intact will hold up in court because the other data fields cannot be edited, they can only be erased.. If the Exif is hacked and this is not real, the CIA or a really good hacker did this, which I doubt, I’d say it’s probably real.”

          That is completely inaccurate, the EXIF data can indeed be edited line by line.

          As to your point about the MMS send, I tried that too, sending the image I edited the EXIF data on as a Small image, which chopped it down as much as AT&T and my iPhone wanted it to. It sent but did not change the original EXIF resolution data in the image that was sent. The DateTime EXIF data was also unchanged. I spent a few hours and tried many different ways to get the resolution data and the DateTime fields to change to reflect an anomaly like that shown in this image and never did I see anything like it.

          The final kicker for me in the above article is: “THE ABOVE IS NOW CONFIRMED 100 PERCENT TRUE.” Nothing in this article confirms anything as true.

          If you’d like to believe something that is so obviously fake and a scenario that in and of itself is quite implausible, all reported to you by someone who thinks “THE ABOVE IS NOW CONFIRMED 100 PERCENT TRUE.” then so be it. But, I’d prefer to focus on things that are no so easy to dispute. This post and the whole scenario around it are simply false.

        • artl

          you dont even need to hack it – just down load a very easy to use tool from the 8 or so I found on google front page. a person with almost zero technical knowledge can manipulate exif meta data

        • pitdroidtech

          That doesn’t explain why the image, when loaded into a hex editor, shows a Picasa tag. It also shows licensing information for XMP (Adobe). iPhone pictures don’t included XMP data. And they certainly don’t show a Picasa tag. So the image was edited in Picasa before being uploaded to 4p. Just sayin’. Here are the first few lines of the file (Hexidecimal converted to ASCII)

      • The Real Deal

        You make a very good argument. Now I’m at a loss. I really would like to think that those passengers are still alive, so I’m trying to justify this article to myself thinking the author is giving us good information by saying nearly 100 accurate or whatever. But like i said, you make a good argument. Seems to me this article could probably be debunked. Would be nice to have something tangible, i don’t see this as it after reading your reply.

        • SDCAUSA

          Did you download the tool and check the EXIF data for yourself? Did you compare it to hundreds of iPhone photos to see how often those anomalies naturally appear in a iPhone photgraph. I did. The answer is NEVER without having been sloppily edited.

          I can create any image I want right now and change the GPS coordinates to show that I took it on Diego Garcia. I even know that I have to edit 3 dates, rather than just 2. I also know that I cannot show an iPhone photo as having a 320X240 resolution, especially since it was taken surreptitiously and he wouldn’t have time to anything manual to downsample it with, especially since he was supposedly doing it with voice commands. I also tested various different methods of sending and resaving the image to see if these changes were automatically made by the carrier or by the phone, after extensive efforts, I was unable to replicate the anomalies I’ve described here and above without manually editing them with an editor.

          As far as the author’s claim that this is “100 proven”, how can he have any credibility when he believes that it would take a serious CIA level uber hacker to edit EXIF data when really all it takes is a few minutes of your time and a free EXIF data editor. It’s easy to get GPS coordinates and simply plug them in and voila, you can claim anything you want to claim about where the picture was taken. There is no court in the world that would accept his argument that EXIF data is not editable because that makes it stand up as verified proof in the court of law. 1 minute of cross examination and the judge would laugh him out of the court.

          I used to develop metatag management software to work with the Adobe Creative Suite, there is nothing magical, the data is extremely easy to edit.

          I also take issue with the fact that this image was supposedly taken 10 days after the plane went missing. I don;t know about you, but I’ve never seen an iPhone that could hold a charge for 10 days, even if it was hidden up someone’s butt all that time. Unless his butt had a USB charging connection, that phone wasn’t alive after more than a few days. Furthermore, if he had a web connection, don’t you think the text messages that his girlfriend surely sent him while she was frantically waiting for him at the airport in the first few hours would all come through to him? If his phone was on the network and still had battery, why would he not reply immediately to her

          Another point is this: If your house were burning down, what are you going to do? Are you going to post to an obscure web message board and hope someone sees it soon enough and contacts the fire dept. for you? Or are you going to call 911 and summon them yourself. If your life is in serious jeopardy, you are going to do the most direct thing possible to get yourself out of trouble.

          The final thing that leads me to believe this is a hoax is that a person I follow on Twitter reached out to the girlfriend and sent her all the information. Her reply was that she did not believe it to be credible, the language used in the post was not characteristic of how he would express himself and that she was not going to pursue this in any way.

          This hoax is not only misleading a lot of people for no good reason since it’s easy to see that this is a fraud. People are reposting it like wildfire and not doing any kind of due diligence on their own. Play with the EXIF data editor yourself and l’d be surprised if you really believe the image was not edited after you compare it to some reference photos of your own. It’s very easy to do, this image proves nothing, this is not any kind of 100 proven evidence that he is alive and waiting on Diego Garcia to be rescued.

          I’d love for them to be found alive and I always love a great conspiracy theory, BUT, this one is about the weakest attempt I’ve seen in a long time and I assure you that IF the CIA and/or NSA are watching this, they are laughing their asses off because so many people are going out of their way to believe something that is so easy to discredit. The disinformation people don;t even have to get involved here, everyone is doing a great job of discrediting themselves for them.

        • The Real Deal

          Sorry if i confused you. I was agreeing with you. I did not download the tool however, i did check numerous photos today and the date/time stamp original and date/time stamp digital are all the same. In the original from the sender, you’re right, it’s off by 19 minutes.

          As i said, i did not download the tool, however here is a link to that software. There is a freeware version and a pay version if anyone else cares to look into it further. I choose to take your word on the subject as their product description shows that it can edit date/time stamps.

      • DK

        Incorrect, the key difference is that there is a 19 minute gap between when the photograph was taken and when it was edited on the phone.

        Time taken Date/Time Original : 2014:03:18 20:49:41
        Modify Date 2014:03:18 21:08:34

        The phone modifys the picture – Question, was it changed by Siri from PNG to Jpeg to send as attachment ?. 19 minutes from the original to a modifed version, good grief.

        The real clinker is the receiving web site time:

        Sydney is they key one unless network and time stamps are being spoofed (or the Phones set itself to local time) to spoil this exact situation on Diego Garcia or the web server has had a date problem by collecting its time from a corporate firewall which has been reset – not unknown. If the phone is on Sydney time Paul has waited 22hrs 35 minutes before sending. His phone should only have 250 hrs of life on standby, therefore should have run out of power around the 18th at the time of send.

        • SDCAUSA

          So, your theory is that after pulling the phone out of his butt he actually was able to edit the iPhone picture by voice command 19 minutes later and then do all these gymnastics by voice command that would be necessary to find that server, login, create this post and send it. That’s an awful lof of time to burn and voice to make to create that post, especially since his battery would long since be dead. Also, if he had a web connection he surely would have received frantic text messages and/or calls from his girlfriend and friends while they were waiting to find out why his plane was late and in the ensuing days. That phone would have been constantly vibrating using up battery power like crazy. Why did he fail to respond to any of those messages that surely his tech savvy friends and family would have been sending to him?

          There’s no way that scenario is plausible. Even if he somehow jumped through the hoops above we would have directly texted his wife to let her know. Risking his life and survival to an obscure web board and the hope that someone there would get help to him is not something an 50 year old IBM employee would do, he’d take direct action and reach out to her, there’s no way he’d leave her hanging and himself in the process, it just doesn’t add up

        • DK

          @SDCAUSA What theory, I am looking at the time stamps and trying to make sense of the delays. :roll:

          As to the rest, he states he has been drugged, at which point we are looking at some serious time loss.

          Next he is not one of the guys they are looking for, hence the lack of interrogation and solitary confinement.

          The phone would only have ‘buzzed’ if it could recieve anything, the phone, like any taken aboard an aircraft by a responsible owner is off or in AIRPLANE mode.

          If he is inprisoned at Diego Garcia It is entirely possible SMS messaging and ALL phone traffic had been disabled by jamming because they had already made the mistake of allowing those who did not turn off their phones responsibly to ring through on March 8th. They are now relying on the phone company duping the records. 4G however is 2.6 Gh and a military radar frequency still in use by the USN.

          The key thing for me is the delays and the reason for them, which is not explained. Humans are very good at fiction, not maths.

          DK, I am interested in the time differences as well, and have some prior experience in legal email forensics. this is the info I got off the image : I noticed in another case I had, the times that were recorded was the time zone of the ‘host’, separate from the receiver.

        Again the only problem here is the time it has taken for the posts to be known, which if you were trying to discredit inquiry would have been broadcast by mainstream media on March 19th even if the post was faked just to move the public eye away from Diego Garcia, with ‘Experts’ outing the fakery. We are 11 days after the post, if it was a fake there would have been multiple ones, the odds are posting to an obscure BBS it would remain obscure, or come to light late as this had, but be uncensored.

    • MerryLynne

      How interesting. This rings of the truth. Black ops deal for sure, and I felt that from the beginning of this event. Now… the questions remain, will this plane be used for a terrorist/false-flag attack? If that were true, then why would they bother to keep passengers alive? I suspect something even more outrageous. Given enough time, drugs, and MKUltra-style programming, these passengers may be convinced they’ve been kidnapped by aliens, and then walla, courtesy of project Bluebeam, President Obama will negotiate with “aliens” for their release. Pope (or oops, false prophet) Francis will put his stamp of approval on the charade and Obama will then have “galactic” authority. However, if this is the scenario, I don’t think it will happen until things play out with Putin. Who knows what is up some very powerful sleeves these days. The only sure thing is that something evil this way comes.

      The world is filled with lies and cover ups, there’s no disputing it. Even the case of MH370 is surrounded by mystery. This version of the story (since there have been several) shows nothing more than yet another fruitcake with an exceedingly poor ability to distinguish facts and REAL proof, to the voices in their own head.

      I took the black photo and adjusted all of the lighting/contrast parameters and could not get any discernible shapes, just a darker, heavier mass in the center of the photo and lighter shade surrounding it.

      • Warren

        Yeah, I did too. It’s possible (if this is not a hoax) that he took the picture not for sake of taking a picture, but to capture and send the gps location information that he knew would be sent along with it.

    • crankyoldone

      Ok ….. on another site I found this ; I guess you CAN edit exif info ?

    • Warren

      The trolls are giving this article a harder full-court press than on any other article I’ve seen in a long time. Kinda makes one wonder…

        Yes – they expose themselves and reveal the truth (or near enough)

        I’d say idiots and f’tards and wilfully ignorant solipsists and, and,… – but they ARE helping us.

        I guess the dumb-us and kill-us fluoride, vaccine, radiation, and TOXIC EVERYTHING plan has FAILED.

        Too many are wide awake now. It is time to simply take our hands off the machine and look after those around us.

        It will collapse quickly and painlessly if we help each other.

        And I’m not even after revenge for all the EVIL these parasites have caused.

        BUT, know you are right to use (DEADLY) DEFENSIVE FORCE if you are attacked.

        99.9 percent of us just want to get on with rebuilding Paradise. The 0.1 percent will just have to LIVE with it.

    • Mark

      I agree with you, I checked the photo origin data and the GPS location is there in the Island Diego Garcia (7 18 58.31S, 72 25 35.56E). Verifying the data EXIF of that photo have not any clue about a force brute software to cause alteration of the GPS data. We have two choices, one is a person from Diego Garcia base doing a morbid joke (or a desinfo agent) and the other is that the passengers are really there as CIA prisoners by some unknown reason. Very weird… but the photo is really authentic.

      • Warren

        Mark, I’ve been taking the position in several comments above that there is nothing in the exif data to prove that the photo is fake. However, that is not to say that anything in it proves it is genuine. Unfortunately, the gps exif data (and any or all data) in a jpeg image can be altered or completely faked.

        I continue to hope that the image and its included meta data are genuine. There is nothing to prove that they are not. As much as I wish that, there are also a few holes in this story that nobody has yet brought up. (1) Why ten days between the hijacking and the message? Why wait ten days of hiding a phone in your crotch? (2) If the building is as indicated on Google Earth, it appears to have a metal roof and probably metal walls. OK, could be fiberglass, but that’s not as likely. So then how did he get a GPS signal through the metal roof? Or manage to send a MMS message through a metal building?

        Like I said, I hope this is genuine. But there are some outstanding questions.

        • Wizz24

          Hi, try this: drag and drop the original dowloaded photo in the notepad. You will be able to read 2 words that should absolutely not appear there if genuine iphone photo: Picasa (that allows you to change GPS coordinates) and Photoshop 3.0 (which I guess was used to make the image)…that is complete crap and I am not even talking about the unusual image résolution (240×320) :lol:

        Or three: plot twist, someone altered the geolocation on that phone which is easily doable. I do hope this story has a lot of truth, I hope they are saved soon. Pretty unfair whats going on, everyone just needs to pray even if you aren’t religious, what harm could it do right?

    • Beforeitscrap

      How do you get an IPhone 5 in your butt with no lube? Unless this man has at some point shoved something up there prior to this, I don’t see him randomly cramming a phone up his butt, the damage alone would have side effects which anyone would be able to see or find, at least in the factor of bleeding from the anal. Retrieving the object later on would only result in more damage and bleeding, not even to say that the phone still works because IPhone’s are notorious for not working with even a remote amount of water (or anal juice in this case) damage. Mine stopped working from being over exposed to ‘water moister’ from being in my pocket to long while at work one day. I spent days arguing with AT&T about it and ended up switching providers because they don’t cover water damage to their phones. Just sying

    • ftwfollowthemoney

      If this were true, it puts the phone 1000 miles north of diego garcia, in the ocean off the west coast of southern most india, the time stamped as 20:49. so from plane last contact a 01:19, at best it had to fly direct to diego garcia, 2300 milesat average boeing speed of 557mph= 4hr8mins. 4hr8mins+01.19= 05:27 landing diego garcia. Call at 20:49-05:27=15hrs 16mins then if they were transfered to smaller planes it could be done. If it was a cargo ship average speed 16-22knots to travel 875Nmiles(1000miles) it can’t be done. So if the smaller planes would have to fly a range of 1000 miles plus, so they are planes we should look for travellling the indian ocean on march 8th.

          Used Frhed 1.7.1 Still no Sign of Picassa and Photoshop, but the image has no sign of the Iphone data either.

        • pitdroidtech

          The ‘s’ version is just a thumbnail. It has no exif information whatsoever. So in other words this is just some kind of not so elaborate hoax.

        • DK

          @Pitdroidtech: Or TPTB have inserted a clean picture into the thread, the entire site is about to shut down with immediate effect, did you red the message at the top of the page ?.

          The only problem with working in the digital world is everything can be faked. However since a crime has been comitted regardless law enforcement should inspect the facility at Diego Garcia if they are there or not just to police the system and let them know who they are working for.

          As for the site someone – jimstonefreelance because its his article needs to contact the site IT manager and get the proper date post off the original photograph, the IP address of the phone which was saved on file because the poster was anonymous and drop the original Jpeg into the public domain because the one he posted has been edited also showing the file date it was saved on the server, the one on the site is clean of the data he claims and the name is different, and not take for granted everything he sees. His article is good, but not good enough.

        • pitdroidtech

          No, because this is really no lead at all DK. If there was an image without any sign of tampering it might be one thing (though still not proof), but this is just such a non-story. It’s a hoax, joke, prank.

          Jim Stone is so terribly uninformed about technology that his whole article is absurd. His research abilities are a joke. Or he didn’t do any research and just splurted a whole bunch of uninformed rubbish after seeing the post at 4p.

        • DK

          @Pitdroidtech That may or may not be the case, but someone in 4Chan has kept the post on the Archive when it should have been deleted. Most people do not know that Twitter, Facebook and all modern BBS including the mail servers of your employer keep a backup of their messages for several months for puproses of law enforcement. They are on what is usually called a Forensic server(an Archive Database). Gmail has one which is kept for a minimum of 6 months, with any luck Twitters is on tape which is not editable.

          This would give the original post, with a timestamped jpeg with the original exif proving without a shadow of a doubt that the jpeg had been edited or not after posting, and that the site webpage was hacked post post which is now being claimed.

          Because the post was anonymous the IP address of the phone would have been saved , which is a critical identifier, with a fixed IBM leased IP this would identify the phone, with a leased one from a carrier we would be able to identify the carrier in use and it would be an anonymous job to hack the carrier to get which cellphone tower provided the connection.

          Data billing, again carrier database would have to be hacked but this would timestamp and prove Phillips phone was in use, if it was his private phone his home should be recieving a high roaming data charge. This should worry you a little ( which says the entire service is now blocked because O2 still says you can at £6 per hour (

        • pitdroidtech

          It’s simpler than that. All authorities have to do is subpoena Wood’s phone records. They may already have done this. Possibly for all passengers.

          Of course if it is a hijack and it’s organised by the evil authorities, then we will never know. Hackers won’t get access to google’s cache (or who ever his email address was with).

          But the bottom line is that this has all the hallmarks of a badly done prank. Stone’s apoplectic claims about being hacked and having the image “on a card” and not wanting to plug it into his online computers is absurd to the point of ridiculousness. I’m in IT, believe me he doesn’t have a clue about security. It is clear as day to anyone with actual IT experience. All he has to do is buy an el cheapo memory card, put the “original” image on it, and go visit an internet cafe and upload that f#&ker to every image site and social media site he can find. Mirror it everywhere.

          The fact that he doesn’t means one thing and one thing only. He doesn’t have the original image. He wasn’t hacked. And he has been caught out spreading a prank claiming it was “confirmed” and “verified” because of his misunderstanding about how EXIF data works (he viewed it in an exif view not in a hex editor, so failed to spot the “picasa” and XML tags), he has been called on it and now resorts to this absurd tale about being hacked.

    • onlysixshooter

      You can add geolocations to photos manually so that photo could be an elaborate fraud.

      • DK

        An eleborate fraud posted on an obscure Twitter BBS with an Anonymous logon (a good fraudster would have logged on as WoodsP or derivative), there would have been a good photo of a bag over the head or hands tied behind the back with cuffs, or a photo of his body lying in a pool of blood with a small story on how he was being tortured by Mossad. You can pick them up from those who have been prisoners in Iraq, Syria, UAE etc. and do a quick re-edit. Plenty of material.

        In fact, I am suprised this one is so dull whch is probably why it is more credible. What is worrying is that the world took 12 days to find out about a post on twitter, when the other readers worked out who the person was. And some of the other posts belonged to people who deserved to be locked up in a cell in Diego Garcia.

        Now if I wanted to create a good fraud, I would have created the Phillip Woods Facebook page, included his life history, address, school, education and employment history then posted the Diego Garcia story using a Gmail account logon created for that purpose, which is exactly what many school pupils do to their teachers. Linkedin has all the details you need, along with the news articles.

    • liberty

      I have a question.
      I just saw another Thread on BIN which posted a News Clip from BBC on March 28 , WITH Phillip Woods girlfriend…….so….
      How is it that his own GIRLFRIEND wouldnt know about this Text -but millions of others DO know about this ( because she appears not to in the Interview- or perhaps maybe DOES , is scared to talk about it openly so is using the Media to “hint’ that she knows they are alive , have been kidnapped & arent at the bottom of the Ocean.) ?

      If he really did send out a Text then……..WHOM would he have sent it TO ?
      Dont you have to have a “recipient ” for the Text itself ?

      Wouldnt SHE have been the one he would send it to ?
      How exactly does a text just “appear” for the whole world to see and ….
      what is it SHE might possibly do, if in fact she DOES know ???

      Next question , if in fact it was …not so much a “hoax”… as more DISINFO (given the sophistication required to hack the details etc ) exactly what Purpose does that serve?

      Whom does it serve if in fact it was a Military hack job..or DARPA ?
      Its only Alt Media talking about this and …why would it make any kind of difference to get the “small fry” sniffing ?

      Do you see what I mean? Why go to all that trouble , using all that sophisticated Software etc when most of the world wouldnt even know about it ??

      So can someone “fill in some blanks here”???

        He didnt send a txt – that would be too easy. He controlled Siri talking through a thick canvas head cover. He took a picture of nothing without a flash, because he was to stupid to take a slefie with a flash. He then decided to post it to the most notorious of piss poor websites. He did not deem it feasble to send and email – to friends, family work or clients. Sending to a duffer site was much better.
        Even 4chan decide this is too piss poor a thing to post, and pull it from their site.

      Just for all the nay sayers out there. I downloaded the original photo and opened it on my iPad in the free app called EXIF Viewer. Now having been in I/T for 20+ years what is being said in the article about EXIF data is accurate..any alterations would be immediately recognized.

      That said you open the pic in EXIF VIEWER (FREE) and all the EXIF data is there and you can poor through it all. You can also map the GPS coordinates right in the App and it land you right at Diego Garcia.

      It’s a shame that most alternative news sources are now no more than “mainstream” alternative news.
      It’s sites like this that will be the future of finding truth… although hidden among a liberal mix of misinformation and pure BS as well.
      However those that have a clue can and do easily sort through all the BS to connect the dots.
      Unfortunately, it seems the big ones like drudge AJ and breitbart are slowly falling off the map. They are becoming soft and in the process just above mainstream media ratings for truth.
      They ignore what may be extremely important news, perhaps trying to avoid being seen as the Conspiracy nut jobs they were called not so long ago.
      Did they forget that revealing the truth was a risk and came at a cost.
      They either forgot that that is what got them the following they enjoy today… or they are infiltrated and owned now themselves.
      Either way the people need to find new ways to the “whole” truth. Sources that are more concerned with the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
      Not one of the big guys will pay any attention to the wrathchilds connection.
      Even if it is what some say a “false flag” it must be revealed as in 9-11… what lengths the elites will go, to fulfill their agenda.
      Exposing the false flag would throw light on and expose the shadow government elites for who and what they are..
      The fact is… most of the other alternative news makes not even a mention of the developing news of this missing flight but they are wrapped up in mostly petty issues just a few degrees off the perspective you will get from CNN or the other corporate news sources they condemn.

      This guy allegedly has the wherewithal to realize his flight is being hijacked, so he concludes he needs to put his phone either “off” or in “sleep” mode, discretely uses the toilet (or does he do the deed right there in his seat?) and sticks his cell phone up his ass.

      Then, 3 weeks later, after being searched and bound (at least with a cloth over his head), he poops out his phone and takes a pic, and sends a distress message.

      Are his hands tied, or are they free? If free, he could presumably take the bag off of his head…

      If tied, how the heck does he remove his pants (assuming he has pants on), crap out his phone, and manipulate the phone so as to take a picture and send that message?

      LMAO what a crock. A non-photo, a black square, with DG coordinates HAHAHAHA. People will believe anything.

      I want to see a youtube video of someone re-enacting the scenario. Including the 3-week wait time with an iPhone in their rectum. I bet 99.9% of the people couldn’t do it with their hands free and no bag over their head.

      Who knew this cat was so… skilled?

      • caturday

        The bag over his head is locked. That’s why he can’t remove it.

        • Landinfloridaforsale

          No one, especially not trained American Military Police, would EVER leave a prisoner’s hands free. Binding the hands of a prisoner (bagged head or not) is a fundamental rule. Hands are weapons, thus they must be secured.

        • caturday


          Maybe. But they know this guy’s an IBM executive in his 50′s. Not likely that they would treat him like, say, one of the prisoners at Gitmo. They likely researched everyone’s background, so I’m guessing they knew exactly who he was. If so, they knew he wouldn’t be violent.

          Therefore, no hand restraints.

    • Elmy@Cheaperseeker

      Surrounding this story is the fact that the man who managed to get this information to Farganne was harassed and received many threatening voice mails over it, that is another piece of evidence pointing to this as being real.

      Well…were it valid, and I am not saying that it is, then he is certainly dead, now, or at the very least without a phone and a serious case of “just had the hell beaten out of him.” However, my gut tells me that this is all a ruse, to garner a rise out of us. IMO

      Its even more pointless pointing out it may be fake. they are still on diego garcia or some other place by now and at least the ‘phone call’ keeps that important story alive, so why don’t all you nay sayers just shut up/? :!: :mrgreen: Most of you couldn’t care less about anything except yourselves.

      Wait, I’m really confused. Did you guys write this article for a lark or is this meant to be taken seriously? Not a sarcasm, this is an honest question. I mean, who on earth doesn’t know EXIF data can be edited hence faked, easily? I do it all the time. Doesn’t take an expert to do it at all.

      Just a simple google of the keywords “exif data editor” will give you the rough idea of how EASY it is to manipulate exif data, it’s not a rocket science really. That’s why I said I’m confused here, since the article/post above only uses the photo and the photo’s exif data as the ONLY evidence to convince everyone of the “story”. Enlighten me please.

      Sign – this isn’t verified news.

      1) Who, what, how have you verified that this person exists and was on the flight. Show us the name of the airline employee who verified this, and copy of the manifest.

      2) Or verified that the text was sent under distress as described … and not by someone who randomly choose to make a hoax by going to the city and shooting this picture? Anyone smell the phone?

      3) Why one photo? If you were captive and sending photos, wouldn’t you take a BUNCH!

      4) So when your reporter went to the GPS location, what did he see? Exif being unchangable means nothing. All he’d have to do is go to the location and take the pictures.

      5) Quote: “There was no Philip wood working for IBM – this one was really poor. This was the very first debunk posted anywhere, and it’s so thin and transparent well,”
      HUH? So what’s YOUR point? You never explain this. His not working there is odd. IBM’s employee data base is complete & easy to search. You’re declaring that IBM was in on this plane’s disappearance?
      It’s all irrelevant though, since more important is searching planes to see if he was supposed to be on this one!

      It’s a good story, but I can assure you that you can spoof the EXIF withouth any “traces”. Every pentester should know that. If you don’t belive me, take a look at some “hacking” conferences ,(for example search “blackhat 2013 foca” or “blackhat 2009 evil foca”. (2 funny spanish guys having a 45min presentation on Blackhat conference. They presented it on Defcon also (Defcon 19 if I remember correctly.

        Ant to go further, you even don’t have to spoof the exif. You can easily spoof the GPS coordinates withouth any knowedge (free point and click style apps in the wild) and take a photo, which will have the spoofed GPS numbers in EXIF…

        I would like to believe that they were hijacked and are maybe still alive and that some miracle will show us the truth, but if your story relies only on EXIF , than it’s nothing more than theory.

        • truthseeker4809

          Unless you are a shill determined to discredit the report, I wouldn’t doubt the validity of this explosive information. Some people are risking their lives to put out this info while some are juggling around it with technicalities. I had no idea even there was such thing as EXIF data in a cell phone picture. How many percentage of you had such a knowledge? On top of that, how about the people who reported their psychic impression of the tropical island that the plane has landed? Crimes are frequently solved by psychic detectives. These two unrelated reports make it even more plausible. How about letting an independent organization to search the island? If they (US military) have nothing to hide, they should allow that to happen.

        • abcd

          Truthseeker , I don’t want to discredit the report. Infact, I don’t believe any of official stories, which are an obvious lie. I’m just saying that EXIF data is easily spoofed, taking an image with spoofed GPS data is even easier.
          I’m checking some of the best theories about this flight, and this one that the plane landed on Diego Garcia is one of the best theories, one of most logic.
          But declare the fate of the plane solitary on EXIF data is wrong becouse as I mentioned before, spoofing GPS and EXIF data is relatively easy. Spoofing GPS is easy even for a man withouth knowedge, you just install one of the dozens of GPS spoofers , the same way you install a game or other software.
          If I had the time, I would certanly look after those questions : are there any GSM/G3,etc. signals on the island? If yes, which company? If yes, is the GSM network accessibile for all roaming phones or is it specialy meant for military personell? For a big secret base, wouldn’t the military make their own GSM infrastructure which allows to connect only their mobiles? As I understood from this article, he had a quadband 900/1800/1900/850 Mhz phone.
          I’m not saying it’s impossible, but I find it strange that in such secret base they would allow commercial GSM infrastructure. And as I understand from article, the man didn’t have a sattelite phone.
          I belive that there is a big possibility that the plane landed in Garcia but the technical side of story of sending ANYTHING from that phone doesn’t fit. It doesn’t mean that the plane didn’t land there, but it means that it’s a much bigger chance that someone made a prank.
          I hope we will know the truth one day.

    • Jensan1332

      I would liked to know what kind of battery he has on his phone to keep a charge that long. I swear people will believe anything these days. :roll:

    • pitdroidtech


      The image at the 4P board, along with containing the GEO Location Data for Diego Garcia, also contains tags for photoshop, picasa and adobe. The tags include XMP data, which is not included in a standard iPhone photo jpeg. All those elements prove without any doubt whatsoever, that the image was handled AT SOME POINT before it reached the web server and after the photo was taken. So if there was an original untouched image taken by a faeces covered iPhone in a dark room, this is not it, and no one has shared it. If you open the image in a hex editor and search for photoshop, picasa, and adobe, you will quickly see that the image has been edited by third party software. Here is a screen capture of the image loaded in HxD hex editor. Feel free to try yourself.

      So in other words we have NO ORIGINAL UNTOUCHED FILE, and therefore NO SMOKING GUN. The claim is wrong on atleast one count ie: the image DOES HAVE FINGERPRINTS of editing software.

      Secondly, exif data and geolocation data can EASILY be inserted into images leaving no easily detectable trace. Here is a photo where the exif data shows it be taken with an iPhone 4 in Diego Garcia back in 2004 before the iphone 4 was even invented. The person in the image is me. I have never been to Diego Garcia. Open it in a hexeditor and you will find no trace of any third party software having edited the image. I used a combination of hex editor and geosetter to edit the exif data and remove the evidence of third party software.

      Forensic analysis of my photo would reveal some evidence of interference, but that is because I quite frankly could not be bothered going to the extra effort to hide all the possible traces, but it can be done if one really wanted to hide the evidence.

      So the claim is wrong on the second count also. It IS possible to edited images without leaving a trace of the software that performed the editing.

      Lastly, the article claims that EXIF is machine language. This is not correct. EXIF is plain text, CONVERTED into machine language. So a simple converter is all that is needed to decipher it. That is why, in a text editor that includes a converter for converting the hexadecimal machine code into ASCII text, you can read off AND edit the exif information.

    • TruckerDave

      I’m not sure i believe anything written on this website. :cool:

    • HIM

      OKDK folks,

      if US / UK military base has no control of what goes out and in via radio waves, we r in deep s*** !

      besides, if all energy spent on writing this article was spent on something really useful we all would be better off.

      • abcd

        I’m pretty sure too that USA military has control over radio frequencies around the base. And even worse, the article claims that the message was sent through regular GSM (quadband) phone… I highly doubt that even if they have a GSM infrastructure for the personell, that it is some comercial infrastructure which let regular civilian users to roam through their GSM network… He didn’t have a satellite phone eather. Thus the only remaining possible choice for the man who allegedly sent a message would be to use some SDR , connected to his iphone… (HackRf etc.) with good antennas… And even in this casse (stick HackRf or even USPR2 in his ass + antennas) , I’m convienced that the military monitors a big chunk of radio spectrum, even jam it, if not else to prevent any spies to send out messages…
        And yes, EXIF can be spoofed easily, also GPS coordinates can be spoofed even more easily with free point and tap software…

        Articles like this where the OP’s claims are based on EXIF data as an “undeniable evidence”, make a bad shade on theory that plane landed on Garcia… I BELIVE THAT IT IS A BIG CHANCE THAT THE 777 WAS HIJACKED AND LANDED TO BASE , but articles like this are a total fail. One would think that they write is to make a landing on Garcia look stupid.

        On the other way, I’m convinced that it is very possible that the plane indeed landed there. And maybe some of passengers are still alive (those who are needed by USA intelligence).
        So please stop spreading this iPhone prank news because the people will automaticly start to belive that if the phone photo is prank (which IS) , that than the landing on Garcia is automaticly prank, which is NOT the case !

        But anybody who is ignorant or simply doesn’t understand the basics of radio signals (from GSM/CDM cellular signals to all other signals) and the basics of Exif and Gps, instead of claiming such technicaly incorrect “facts”, please make somthing constructive :
        - try find out if Garciaa even has a GSM/CDM infrastructure (+ which one, if GSM than 2G or 3G or LTE)
        - if yes, which company runs it (or it is runned directly by military)
        - is it possible that he used a “homemade” DIY reflector or improvised antenna for 900/1800Mhz to connect to closest commercial cellular network (how far is the closest commercial GSM transmitter? How far can you reach with some kind of “cantenna” for 900 or 1800Mhz?
        - are there some gadgets avaible to simple way upgrade your iPhone to satellite phone?
        - what are the military rules about radio frequencies around military bases?
        - what are the military rules about GSM/CDM communications?
        - is there another way a victim could attach some SDR gadget on iPhone to send out non GSM signal (you can use RTLSDR dongle for recieving on android phones, don’t know for iPhone, but for transmitting i don’t know if there is anything smaller than a new HackRf (from 100khz to 6Ghz) – is it possible to connect to an amateur satellite or spoof your data to some internet data downlink satellite (bytheway those operate on higher frequencies – 10Ghz and more)… ?
        See? If you find any of those answers, you can continue to claim that this picture is REAL…

        I’m convinced that this iPhone photo is a prank. A shame for all us who belive that the airplane could landed in Garcia for some sinister plans…
        Im also convinced that if it landed there, all passengers except those who were needed were executed immidietly. Those left to live were/are under total control 24/7 as any mistake from the USA military or intelligence would cause a worldwide scandal never seen before…
        Everything is possible, but on the iPhone photo , I call : patethic PRANK…

        • abcd

          And to those who after all I wrote still instist that a message is real, I have another challenge. Get the original photo (with original EXIF) , EXIF shows a lot more than GPS , camera type, photo quality, etc. Infact, with Evil Foca (for Windows) you can get a lot of secret Exif data, for example IP of connection and MAC of network adapter, in phone cases the IMSI and IMEI of phone. Check the EXIF with Evil Foca software, it’s a big chance you will find the IMSI and IMEI of phone…That would give the final answer : IMSE – subscriber number – from SIM card + IMEI ( serial number of phone)… This way you can easily see if the photo was taken and sent from his phone. And also locate from a GSM infrastructure archive that to WHICH transmitter was that IMSI connected at that time…. The question would be answered.
          I don’t have a time and a will to play with Foca because believe that this phone message is a prank. But if any of you are convinced that this is true and have 30min to extract secret data from EXIF with Foce , let us now…

        • pitdroidtech

          Evil Foca is a network tool, it will tell you nothing about exif data. Also information like IMSI, IMEI and ip address are not written into the image. You would not be able to retrieve that data from the image because it isn’t there.

          However the one important factor that proves this image has been edited before being uploaded, and therefore doesn’t fit the story at all, is the presence of picasa and XMP tags in the image file. This proves the image has been edited in picasa (or faked out to look like it was edited in picasa). Either way it was edited by something.

          This image is far from the smoking gun the article claims.

        • abcd

          The spianish guys who made the Evil FOca, made more of these software. In windows I have 2 variants – Evil foca and Foca 3 freee.

Will try to find time today to switch to windows, find which one deals with exif and report back here.

          @ABCD The commercial infrastructure is exactly that, installed by a contractor, you can buy sims that work there including 4g capable data plans from O2 the UK carrier. The US navy does as you say control the entire spectrum, but possibly left the 4g 2.6 GHz open, it is a Naval Radar frequency. This site says you can

          IPhone 5 is 4g and frequency hops, it just wont work as 4g in Europe.

      I don’t think an Iphone would fit up an ass to easily. It would be hard to get it in there while being hijacked as you couldn’t just go off to the toilet to get the job done, plus you would need a bucket full of KY.
      You would also be walking with a strange gait which would bring you to the attention of these military experts who supposedly hijacked the plane.
      I do believe that something is very weird with this plane going missing but not as strange as this story.

      Actually it is quite simple to alter Exif data for GPS coordinates. Numerous programs can easily do that. One is a free Exif data editor called Exif Pilot. If you don’t believe me I can upload that same image showing it is now sitting on the beach in Malibu, California right in front of some very luxurious beach homes. There is nothing to indicate the data was altered either except the file date will change but that is also easy to alter or set back to the original date and time. No hacking skills needed….

      None believes media after 9/11. The tide of truth has turned into a tsunami of people across Canada and US who see thru the b.s. We are lied to on a daily basis by people who have no value for human life. The only reason people come on this site is for two reasons Those that believe we are being lied to and those that are paid by the people lying to us to discredit the truth.

      • DK

        Agreed but here you can face them off with Allies in the search for truth which is something you will not get on Yahoo Disquss etc, because that is where the paid shrills who are just there to insult you lurk with the Marxist dotrine of insulting and demeaning the person untill they go away and ignoring the just questioning of the arguement. Here I have seen the politest and most concerned people on all the boards I have ever visited. :grin:

    • Confessions of a Closet Republican

      For fecks sake. Why would anyone (other than maybe terrorists) hijack the plane. You people are sick.

      • LifeIs

        Remember the fake search for the Scorpion?

        Confessions, we don’t know the motive. Non-governmental terrorists CANNOT hijack the plane, as the planes are tracked by military radar, and subject to being controlled from the ground in case of hijacking.

        That’s right. Anti-hijack remote control. Look it up. When you find out that the Flight Management System computer has had a ground link capable of “updating” it, since the mid-1990s, that’s what they’re talking about. And the “automatic landing system” is part of it.

        We are looking at weeks and months of a fake search. Just like the fake search for the US Navy submarine Scorpion in 1968. We found out several decades later, the US government knew exactly where the submarine was, all that time. (From the sounds of its sinking, if not by communication from the Russians.)

        Yes, in 1968, the US could record the sound of a submarine sinking and pinpoint the location. And for diplomatic reasons could lie to the families and the public and send search planes and ships on a fools’ errand.

        The sounds of an airplane hitting the water would be noticed. And there has been NO explanation as to how the plane is supposed to have evaded Australian military radar, or anyone else’s.

    • Warren

      I was wrong. Earlier I stated “there is nothing in the exif data to prove that the photo is fake”. Unfortunately, there *is* evidence that the photo is fake.

      Among the metadata is an “IPTC” binary block and a “XMP” block. Digital cameras never insert IPTC blocks. And, using exiftool to extract the XMP block, one gets (pasted):

      The XMP block was clearly inserted by an Adobe product, most likely Photoshop. Furthermore, look at the embedded modification date. It includes the time and time zone. The time zone is “-4″, or Eastern Daylight time. In other words, the file was passed through an Adobe product on the east coast of the U.S.

      Very sadly and reluctantly I must now conclude that the photo is a hoax.

          Yes but is it a deliberate one or one posted from ignorance – would you deliberately make yourself look a fool ?. We need the original posted on 4Chan not the copy of the copy which has been messed with by someone who thinks he knows what he is doing.

        • Warren

          The image originally posted at 4chan was archived at Here’s a direct link.

          The MD5 hash of that image matches exactly the MD5 hash of the image we’ve been looking at. Same image.

        • DK

          @Warren, The 4plebs Archive may not be the real page, this is the internet which in the US is run by the NSA, all those routers that form the infrastructure backbone the list are military or corporations under some form US government contract, the sole country ‘not’ looking for flight MH 370 in the Indian Ocean. :wink:

          4Chan is based in Europe Switzerland therefore nominally should be out of US influence.

          As stated by me in this thead, the original post and image is required with evidence of timestamp on the server shown by the IT department of 4Chan to prove it is firstly the genuine image posted at the time, and then we can examine it with a hex editor. The copy has 2 versions 1395192158752.jpg and 1395192158752s.jpg which is on the page, this should not be possible, only 1 could have been posted, the server should not have renamed the thumbnail the picture 1395192158752s.jpg(Clean of data) is the only one on the page yet you here are somehow linking to another version which is not on the page 1395192158752.jpg which has the edited data and that area is protected from external users looking at the directory.

          My sides.

          and these posts are not on the page shown the tread has either been reduced in size therefore the page was edited, or I am not seeing the real page and no search picks up 1395192158752.jpg or 1395192158752s.jpg image.

          So how did you link to a ‘genuine’ copy when it is not there, there is no way to get to it normally !

          Second searching shows the boards on 4plebs have already gone through all this and are complaining of massive deletes of the articles mentioning this wherever they are posted, which is anything but normal including the fact that the 1395192158752.jpg you linked to is not the genuine article. It is not the one on the page, and the one on the page has no data at all.

      The one question that comes to mind while going through some of these comments and noticing no one has stated it this:

      If Philip Wood posted this to 4chan’s /pol/ (4chan on the whole is known for trolls trolling trolls) he would not have been able to complete the post if he was blindfolded… 4chans posting system requires each submission to pass a Captcha recognition. This means he would have had to type in a randomized sequence of letters or letters/numbers and both as displayed on the screen before he could post. This is impossible to do blindfolded and/or handcuffed. If you can explain this simple aspect to the story then perhaps I would give it more credence.

      • Jabberwocky1111

        Don’t a lot of those have the option to listen to it?

        • DK

          Yes you are absolutely right and under W3C guidelines all captchas have to have audio for the visually disabled under WCAG 2.0

          ” CAPTCHA: If the purpose of non-text content is to confirm that content is being accessed by a person rather than a computer, then text alternatives that identify and describe the purpose of the non-text content are provided, and alternative forms of CAPTCHA using output modes for different types of sensory perception are provided to accommodate different disabilities.”

    • Stroppy

      There is a need for rational thinking here. imo everyone is being side-tracked by silly things like how did the battery last 10 days (he turned if off, or was Airplane mode), how did he get up his ass (maybe he had a history of shoving things up there or simply put it between his bum cheeks) – who cares!

      Answer the following:

      What proof is there that the photo was taken by Philip Wood? Or was it simply taken by a nonce working on Diego Garcia for a laugh?

      Yes, we should take it seriously until it can be proven not to be the case. But who is going to investigate a US base? So we are most likely never to know one way or the other.

      How was the photo uploaded to 4chan by voice command? Don’t just assume this is possible, try it yourself!

      Was the message simply sent to a trusted colleague, who tried to view it on Photoshop, before posting it to 4chan? If so, why hasn’t that person identified themselves? (Possibly because ‘they’ already know who he/she is and…..)

      Did Philip have an existing pass that would enable 4chan’s Verification process to be by-passed? Also, bear in mind that 4chan has a history of pulling pranks and is quite proud of that record – do some research if you want.

      I won’t go on ’cause no one reads these comments anyway – just wants their views on record…

    • KissMyWookiee

      “… but I do know that Exif can’t be rewritten with common software without a trace, ALL software leaves a note in the application tag that says the picture was modified by an application. Exif can be erased as well but NOT CHANGED WITHOUT A TRACE.”

      What a load of bull!

      I’ve edited EXIF data before using just a common hex editor… I’d taken a bunch of photos in a different country without changing the time on my camera, so had to edit each one by hand to reflect the actual time taken. It was easy, but a chore. No trace of editing at all.

      I could easily lookup how an EXIF header is constructed and manually create one using just a hex editor. No one would ever know. I could write a header that says the photo was taken using a camera model that doesn’t even exist – it’s just data.

      When a story makes such a completely unfounded assumption and claims it to be fact, then I have to dismiss the entire thing – particularly when it originates from websites like this. :mrgreen:

      When will the Malaysia goverment declare the result of MH370?We are so anxious.

    • mfritz0

      If this endeavor to obfuscate this evidence continues, one might think there is a valid point to this message’s authenticity, add this to the further information that is being collected and make some logical conclusions. It starts to paint a picture. Just what this picture is depends on what information some intelligence agency does or does not have that is not available to the rest of the World. Step wisely, look before you leap.

    • Aelin


      As a programmer, let me say that you are completely incorrect. It’s a simple binary header in which you must know the order of the bytes in the file to understand the data. This bit of info pretty much convinced me that you don’t know what the hell you’re talking about.

      You are a shill yourself – you are because you always blame the Jews and Israel for everything that happens in the world. Genesis 12:3, “And I will bless those who bless you ( Israel ) and the one who curses you I will curse.” Every time I click on an article from BIN and I see it is you jimstone freelance I know you will be cursing the Jews.

      When you’re held hostage, and you’re sending a message out for help, why the hell would you waste time and the possibility of being detected by saying, “I had my cellphone in my ass.”

      here’s the kicker…you wouldn’t!

      But apparently I’m just a shill. Honestly, I’d like the author of this story to try this….
      1) turn on your cell phone
      2) shove it up your ass
      3) wait a couple days
      4) try to send a message out by voice only
      5) pull phone out of ass and see if it’s still working

      please post your results

      So… Let’s imagine that he managed to hide an iPhone in his buttcheeks, hold it there without anyone searching him… Not lose it while drugged and transported out of the plane.

      How would you think he would manage to extract it, initiate Siri and through a bag over his head manage to get Siri to compose a pretty clear message when at any other time with no barrier between your mouth and the microphone this doesn’t happen?

      Really? A stressed, drugged man with a bag over his head sent a voice message that was clear and coherent and he even took the time to add punctuation as well as brackets?

      Yes, that’s more likely than the bloody plane crashing.

          but would he go thru all the trouble of using the punctuation tricks if he is just trying to get a distress signal out…seems like an awful lot of work..not to mention my earlier post about captcha issue

        • DK

          It all depends upon the nature of the man, that he was using Siri at all meant he was used to it for the express purpose of mailing, creating texts – treating it exactly like a secretary and his state of mind was not what you would call normal to his own admission. :neutral: However to be an IT expert of such value thet IBM kept him on during its $1 billion restructuring, had him fly around the world for meetings in China and Australia should tell you something about him – he was valued, he would be a perfectionist in his field. People like that don’t forget caps and full stops.

    • skwirl78

      i have 1 question, in order to post on that site you have to enter a captcha to post it..i know they have a button you can click to do audio, but if your blindfolded your not going to find it on the page…so how was that possible?

      the latest twist on this is that his wife has appeared on cnn or something and they have both been recognized as crisis actors used in the boston non-bombing – comment?


      Another question to ask yourself is this: The story is that the CIA or some other nefarious wing of the US government managed to hijack this plane and fly it to Diego Garcia and offload the passengers into a black site prison that has been used to house terrorist prisoners in the past and when they brought the passengers off the plane they did not strip search and cavity search every single one of them like they would do at any prison in the world? Seriously, they missed a phone “hidden” in his butt cheeks or even shoved up his ass? No prison in the US would let someone inside without a cavity search. Theer are so many other things about this story that are easy to use to prove it’s false but the fact that he would never even have gotten into the prison without being cavity searched is a huge one for believes of this story to overlook.

    • Who dat

      You can turn an iPhone off, getting up your rse if you need to would be possible, he’s on the flight list, you can’t poo poo the story on any of that evidence. The. Fact the NSA have made information classified is enough to tell you something is a miss with it all. I think it’s parked up somewhere to be used in the future, you can be assured the yanks know all about it, you can’t hide a person on this planet from them, let alone a passinger plane.

      Its nice to see this page has not been deleted.

      To recap:

      4Chan has cloud hosted its servers, the last location of which at the time of posting was one near Bern Switzerland meaning the posts are covered by the swiss codes of obligations meaning retention of over 10 years is required, also the DPA. These are in line with European data retention directives. This is to monitor illegal hate crime, photos of child pornography and any evidence of crime on the chat server if 4Chan liked it or not, Uncensored maybe, unmonitored not.

      After being informed of its responsibilites 4Chan moved its cloud host to Southern Mexico. The original page and its threads are strill recoverable if 4Chans cloud host can be contacted. The only way to delete the thread from an incremental backup is to delete all incremental backups.

      The original post is therefore fully recoverable.

      The 4plebs ‘Archive’ contains just 2 hours of what would be several days of thread conversation. There are not IT technicians available to delete or close threads out of hours and since it is UNCENSORED chat there are no moderators either.

      We therefore have a cut and paste page which looks as though it is an archive because it is on 4plebs – however searches on 4Chan and on 4Plebs gave accounts of massive deletes of any mention of the 1395192158752.jpg, this can be searched for. You will also find comments if searched on 4plebs which belong to the thread but are not visible on the page you see, especially if you chase up the ids given.

      We cannot trust the Archive page because it itself is not genuine.

      Jim Stone got his article from 4Plebs not 4Chan.

      And to those who do not know picassa is a gallery tool download on iphone5 and not an unusual thing to see altering photographs exifs.

      Original exif can be got from here.
