Jurisprudence and the rights of man have taken a definite back seat in this trial by media ordeal displayed in one of the greatest psychological operations in modern times. A young pilot named Andreas Lubitz is being crucified in the media. His 'crime' might be he sought psychiatric help. He was supposed to be at the controls of Flight 4U 9525 when it crashed. The pilot was locked out of the cabin which was standard procedure in the post 9/11 we must be safe world. However, the only evidence I've heard from the cockpit voice recorder was he was breathing. The rest is conjecture. What if he just passed out. Things like that do happen for a broad range of issues. Many common medicines make you drowsy. Psychiatric meds known as SSRI'S have terrible side effects including delusions. Many young people and older ones too party hearty. What if he had little sleep. Many airline companies work their pilots hard to fit schedules. The rigors of shifts and time zone changes can also have an effect.
By leaping to conclusions our media watch dog has started to lead a lynch mob to burn Andreas resembling a witch burning. What is lost is the truth. What were the fighter jets doing escorting the flight? What was the explosion reported? Who was the third unidentified American? Was he taking the family jewels of the American intelligence services abroad? We know Yvonne Selke had the keys to the store with her job at Booz Allen Hamilton's National Geospaital-Intelligence Agency project. That could win or lose a war with Russia. Then the CIA let Roger the drone specialist go. Did he order the shoot down? When the smoke dies down we may see the truth of the matter. However, in the short run the smoke from the embers surrounding Andreas the witch make that impossible.
We resume the media circus.

The co-pilot who crashed his plane into a mountain killing himself and 149 people hid a secret illness from his employers, German prosecutors have revealed.
Andreas Lubitz locked the captain out of the of the Airbus A320's cockpit before setting the plane's controls to descend into a rocky valley, it emerged yesterday.
Following a search of Lubitz's Dusseldorf apartment, investigators today revealed they had found old torn-up sick leave notes, current ones and one issued for the day of the disaster.
Prosecutors said the finds indicate Lubitz may have had a medical condition which he kept secret from his employers, budget airline Germanwings.
They said have found no suicide note or claim of responsibility and no evidence of a political or religious motivation.
As well as having been signed off from training with depression in 2008, it was reported this morning that Lubitz had continued to receive mental health support up until this week's crash.
The 28-year-old may have been in the middle of the 'relationship crisis' with his girlfriend in the weeks before the crash and was struggling to cope with a break-up, German newspaper Bild reported.
Slipped through the net: Germanwings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz had suffered from depression and ‘burnout’ which had held up his career
New information about Lubitz's life emerged just hours after police investigating the disaster began a four-hour search of his flat, which he is said to have shared with a girlfriend.
Yesterday, the boss of Germanwings admitted Lubitz had slipped through the ‘safety net’ and should never have been flying. It was also revealed that the fitness fanatic had suffered from depression and ‘burnout’ which had held up his career.
He reportedly received a year and half of psychiatric treatment and was at one point recommended to be examined by a doctor before flying.
But, incredibly, he passed his psychological assessments and was later considered fit to fly.
Germany’s Federal Aviation Office confirmed this morning that Lubitz had a medical condition noted in his pilot’s records which required him to have a regular examination.
It was reported this morning that during his education at the Lufthansa Flight School in Phoenix, Arizona, he was listed temporarily as 'unfliable'.
It was suggested today that Lubitz - who had worked for Lufthansa as a cabin attendant for nearly a year before being accepted for flight training - may have been teased by other pilot's over his previous role.
A friend said: 'His nickname was "Tomato Andy" - a reference to his past employment as a flight steward'.
Another told Bild: 'He always had high ambitions but was considered to be second-league because he had been a flight attendant. He always wanted to fly long distance, above all to San Francisco. But he was always put off. Only later was he eventually allowed to fly European routes.'
Prosecutors yesterday revealed chilling recordings from the doomed aircraft showing that piano teacher’s son Lubitz locked his captain out of the cockpit so he could crash the plane into an alpine ravine.
In audio files extracted from the plane's cockpit voice recorder - discovered on Wednesday at the remote crash site - the captain was heard growing increasingly distressed as he tried to force his way back into the flight deck.
Reports in Germany this morning suggest the locked-out pilot may have resorted to using an axe in a desperate bid to get through the armoured door as the plane hurtled towards the ground.
Prosecutors said the screams of passengers aware of their fate could be heard in the final seconds.
In a blunt admission, Carsten Spohr, the head of Lufthansa which owns the budget airline, admitted Lubitz had slipped through the safety net with devastating consequences.
‘The pilot had passed all his tests, all his medical exams,’ he said. ‘He was 100 per cent fit to fly without any restrictions.
'We have at Lufthansa, a reporting system where crew can report – without being punished – their own problems, or they can report about the problems of others without any kind of punishment.
'All the safety nets we are all so proud of here have not worked in this case.’
