Saying he was “just putting it out there,” CNN host Don Lemon asked his Sunday afternoon guests if something “supernatural” might be in play with the missing Malaysian flight MH 370.
After noting that he has been getting questions via email, social media, and on the street, Lemon wondered if “something beyond our understanding” might have happened to the missing airliner.
“Especially today, on a day when we deal with the supernatural,” Lemon said. “We go to church …. the supernatural power of God. People are saying to me, why aren’t you talking about the possibility — and I’m just putting it out there — that something odd happened to this plane; something beyond our understanding?”
Decoded host Brad Meltzer responded saying, “People roll their eyes at conspiracy theories, but what conspiracy theories do is, they ask the hardest, most outrageous questions sometimes. But every once in awhile they’re right.”
“You can say, ‘Oh, it crashed into the ocean,’” Meltzer elaborated. “But where are the parts? Where are the pieces? Why did it keep going for seven hours? Why do you have a guy on board who gives his watch and his ring to his wife and says ‘Keep these for my boys in case something happens to me’? And that’s not some stranger – he was a mechanical engineer. Something smells wrong.”
“I’m not one of those believers that aliens came down or anything like that,” Meltzer added. “But you do have to stop and wonder: how does a jetliner with two hundred people on it just disappear?”
