This is where the 2014 part of the story kicks in, right?

Wow, per the Guardian:

Quote:

The Chinese agency that published the satellite pictures actually released them Wednesday night local time. In what appears to be something of a big miss, until CNN and the BBC reported the pictures in the past hour, they went pretty much un-noticed.

But the American arm of the Chinese-funded English-language broadcaster, CCTV, tweeted the pictures seven hours ago. The Twitter account of CCTV America, at the time of writing, has 8,226 followers.
Apparently the Malaysian authorities haven't received the images yet.

It seems the Malaysian, Vietnamese, and Chinese authorities are all rather ticked off with each other re: handling of the search, information sharing, and the like.

So glad that potential survivors aren't as important as pride.

yep, it was in the news here quite a bit in early Feb - here's a link from one of the first Guardian stories

Man claims to have survived 16 months adrift in Pacific | World news | theguardian.com

and another one... some of the later reports say he was adrift for 13 months, i guess, as more details came to light...

Has anyone gone and investigated the potential stuff unveiled by the satellite images yet?

If US investigators are right, looks like a hijacking and the plane's transponders were turned off to avoid radar detection.

I can't read the article you posted, because I'm not a WSJ subscriber, unless I'm missing something.

It's behind a paywall. But people are tweeting excerpts of that article.
