Malaysia flight's co-pilot tried to make cellphone call-report

Just when you thought the search for #Malaysia #Flight370 couldn’t get weirder… 


A new (possible) development in the missing Flight MH370 case!

The source of this new development is especially interesting, as The Daily News points out:

The New Straits Times, a newspaper with close ties to the Malaysian government, did not divulge the details of the call. But it was an intriguing development in the more than month-long mystery behind the disappearance of flight MH370. 

Kevin and Benari have some “intriguing” theories of their own on why the Malaysian government’s response has been so terrible.  You can hear all about it on the latest episode.

#Malaysia is weirder than you think.



While investigating the Malaysian government’s bungled handling of Flight 370, Kevin and Benari find themselves caught up in a web of deceit, corruption, and murder. And sodomy. And Spaceballs. And Zoolander. And two Malaysian prime ministers — not including the one from Zoolander. And what does Christiane Amanpour have to do with all of this? It’s Malaysia, She Wrote!

Afghans vote in historic election

Big day in #Afghanistan. 


It’s election day in Afghanistan! 

Benari and Kevin talked about the future of this war-torn country last year (Benari thought they’d have signed a security agreement by now!) and found some surprising glimmers of hope.  

Did we mention Benari was deployed there for a year…?

#Crimea votes to go with #Russia, shocking nobody! 


We here at WTFAW are shocked - SHOCKED - by this turn of events.

SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine (AP) — Fireworks exploded and Russian flags fluttered above jubilant crowds Sunday after residents in Crimea voted overwhelmingly to secede from Ukraine and join Russia. The United States and Europe condemned the ballot as illegal and destabilizing and were expected to slap sanctions against Russia for it.

Ukraine’s new government in Kiev called the referendum a “circus” directed at gunpoint by Moscow - referring to the thousands of Russian troops now in the strategic Black Sea peninsula after seizing it two weeks ago.

But after the polls closed late Sunday, crowds of ethnic Russians in the regional Crimean capital of Simferopol erupted with jubilant chants in the main square, overjoyed at the prospect of once again becoming part of Russia.

Here’s what we had to say about the Crisis in Crimea!
