In MH370 search, incompetence, lost time

(CNN) -- If we were hoping that the finally released -- but month-old -- preliminary report on the March 8 disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 would help explain what happened, we were mostly disappointed.

But the report, issued Thursday and dated April 9, does add new insights on snafus in crucial communication between air traffic control centers and Malaysia Airlines on the morning Flight 370 disappeared. They are disturbing -- and put the competence of the airline's operations center in question.

Indeed the brevity of the report (five pages) seems to show a Malaysian Ministry of Transport still interested in sharing as little information as possible, especially when compared with the extensive detail in preliminary reports from other accidents, such as the loss of Air France Flight 447 in June 2009.

What we do learn from this new report is that the airline told controllers -- who were already looking for Flight 370 -- that everything was normal, delaying the realization that the plane was many hundreds of miles from where it was thought to be, and any attempts at finding it.

Little surprise, as the obvious cover-up is clear from day one.

What exactly is kept secret I do not know. Why the cover-up I know even less.


Shooting their own plane?

Saving faces?

Avoiding paying off compensation?

Slack security?

Suicidal pilot?

Special people on-board?

Hijacking by Malaysians?

... ?????....

But Malaysia did all it could to make sure MH370 is not found.

And it looks like at least some countries have co-operated.
