US blame game!

A day after UK's Sunday Times accused Captain Zahari as the main suspect in the missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370, a US newspaper now says that our army radar was wrong in its report about the flight path.

I wonder how good are the New York Times experts in determining the whereabout of the plane that went missing since March 8 when the Americans - claiming to have the most sophisticated technology to detect even an ocean at the earth core - could not even provide precise details of the incident!
Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 did not climb to 13,700m then dive below 7,000m before it vanished, international investigators said, contradicting earlier reports based on Malaysia's military radar data.
The New York Times reported today investigators discovered the jet had not soared and swooped as they believed earlier, but remained in controlled flight for hours after contact was lost, until it ran out of fuel over the southern Indian Ocean.
It said they concluded this after a re-examination of the military radar data and the pings the aircraft exchanged with an Inmarsat satellite over the Equator showed that the radar's altitude readings‎ appeared to be incorrect.
An international review found Malaysia's radar equipment had not been calibrated with enough precision for the readings to be accurate, the NYT said.
While many military radar can detect altitude and give accurate readings of an aircraft's location, speed and direction, the equipment must be recalibrated regularly and carefully according to local atmospheric conditions, it said.
"The primary radar data pertaining to altitude is regarded as unreliable," Angus Houston, the head of the Joint Agency Coordination Centre, was quoted as saying.
The radar tracked MH370 as it veered off its scheduled flight path over the Gulf of Thailand and flew west across the peninsula and Strait of Malacca.
The ‎plane then passed beyond the radar's range near the northern tip of the Indonesian island of Sumatra.
The radar readings suggested the plane soared above its certified maximum altitude of 13,700m, then dipped low over the ranges of Malaysia, before climbing back to 7,000m or higher over the Strait of Malacca.
But Houston told the NYT that he doubted whether anyone could prove the plane had soared and swooped the way initial reports suggested.
"There's nothing reliable about height," Martin Dolan, the chief commissioner of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, was quoted as saying in the report.
The report said dismissal of the radar altitude data prompted a change in the focus of the search, as the plane's fuel would have lasted longer if it maintained a steadier altitude.
Why only now that they found fault in our army radar? Three months after MH370 disappeared, what have the Americans do to assist the search and rescue (SAR) team by providing 'precision-like' information about it?

I personally believe they just wanted to put the blame on others when they themselves had failed to locate the plane!

What's next?
