CNN Aviation Analyst Mary Schiavo claimed that missing AirAsia Flight 8501 could not possibly be the victim of a terrorist attack because those only take place “in good weather.”
Schiavo, a former Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Transportation, said that “at this point, given it was extremely bad weather, the chances of this being some sort of a terrorist activity are very small — because most terrorist activity takes place in good weather. For example, 9/11.”
The weather on September 11, 2001 was unusually good, due in part to a cold front that kept Hurricane Erin from making landfall on the East Coast.
Last year, Schiavo was asked by CNN’s Don Lemon whether it was possible that Malaysia Airlines flight MH 370 had been sucked into a black hole.
“A small black hole would suck in our entire universe,” she replied, “so we know it’s not that. A Bermuda Triangle is often weather, and Lost is a TV show.”
