McInerney stated his beliefs in an interview with Sean Hannity of Fox News and said that his views were based on information from sources that he could not disclose publicly.
He told Hannity, “My concern is if this airplane could be used as a bearer of a weapon of mass destruction or even conventional munitions that could attack a carrier, Israel, our allies,” he said. “We have to be very alert until we know exactly where this airplane is.”
According to the report, it was alleged that a LIGNET analyst received information from a source at Boeing that the company believes the plane did land in Pakistan.
“There now appears to be evidence that there was a direct course through India flying in the shadow of a Singapore flight 68. That hasn’t been verified… the only thing that I have seen that is starting to be verified is the LIGNET report from Boeing that they believe the plane is in Pakistan,” said McInerney.
McInerney also said the plane might have landed at bases in Taliban-controlled areas of western Pakistan.
However, Boeing spokesperson Sean McCormack denied that claim and told LIGNET, “The Boeing Company does not have information that substantiates your claim.”
As far as McInerney is concerned, he told Hannity, “When the U.S. Navy quits their search, the ship search, they must know something. It is possible the U.S. knows much more than it’s saying.”
