Many claim it’s all a hoax, stating the Malaysia government officials have denied the man is the pilot (yet no video of this news briefing seems to be available online.)
Villagers from a nearby town claim to have found the man while he was lying unconscious on the banks of the Tangshui River,” yet there is no river by that name in Taiwan, the only similar river name is Tamsui River, silly mistake to make unless the locals use that slang name for it.
Apparently The site Snopes.com tracked down the source of the photo and found it at an online publication called The Irrawaddy, Southeast Asia news website, but even this don’t make sense, as the photo is dated from June 3, 2013, yet that article was posted a year later on January 3, 2014 ? ?
Shouldn’t the photo and the news article be posted around the same week at least.
The Benjamin Fulford weekly update video, also covers this story which he believes is true and is being covered up by mainstream media.
