ATC Carlos (@spainbuca) sent first Tweet two hours after MH17 FDR stopped. Debunked by Russian radar

update:

At September 26 2016 Russian Ministry of Defense showed primary radar recordings. The Russians tell that there were no military aircraft near MH17. The Joint Investigation Team concluded this as well.

So this whole Carlos story is a complete nonsense story.

———————————-

A Twitter account claiming to be working at Kiev Air Traffic Control sent Tweets at July 17 2014 suggesting Ukraine shot down MH17.

Soon it turned out this was a fake account. However lets double check the times he sent his Tweets.

Ukraine ATC stated this person did not work as ATC. Spanish people in Ukraine did not know him.  He lived at that time in Romania. Also someone working at Kiev is unlikely to be able to watch the radar screen of Dnipropetrovsk ATC. MH17 was at the time of the crash controlled by Dnipropetrovsk ATC.

It was also very suspicious the man was interviewed by Russia Today in May 2014. Another weird aspect was that @spainbuca followed lots of anti-EU and anti-Israel Twitter accounts. Also @Spainbuca sent Tweets which were anti Israel. Not a typical Air Traffic Controller.

On Internet various sites show a time of the first Tweet of 10:21. Lets find out what the exact time of the Tweets was.

The Twitter account @spainbuca was deleted quite soon after July 17. But webarchive has an archive of the Tweets.

The time of a Tweet is displayed in the timezone set in the preferences of the Twitter account. To find out the time webarchive uses we need a reference. I compared Tweets of Eliot Higgins archived by Webarchive at 16 July 2014 by the date the Twitter search function reports. I found out the time Webarchive uses is UTC-7.

So this brings us to a time of the Carlos tweet of 08:38 + 7 hours = 15:38 UTC.

The Flight Data Recorder stopped recording at 13:20 UTC.

So @Spainbuca was the first try of Russia to mislead the audience.

    Do you have any evidence that “carlos” was involved with Russia?

  2. But there are real verifiable (and addressable for further explanations) people that have seen Carlos account being created in 2010

    And the author followed closely Carlos’s tweets from March 2014.

    Unless you mean that Kremlin army highjacked the account in 2014

  3. It seems that the first attempt to discredit “Carlos” Using letter from the Spanish embassy was debunked (see comment below the article)

    But is that weird. I think it would be normal if he was saying things that might have been contrary to the USA’s or Ukraines view on Maidan. Wouldn’t that be normal that people of the same ilk would follow him?

    I would have to agree on this remark.

    Lets for a moment assume this was a Western psyop, than this would be an Operation Northwoods 2.0…

    In that regard claiming Carlos is Russian disinfo, is worth reconsideration…

  6. 1) The fact that first snapshot of the Internet archive of Spainbuca’s account is taken some time after the attack does not mean that he started twittering áfter the attack. It just means that the first captured tweets are after the attack. See the archive: https://web.archive.org/web/20140717190718/https://twitter.com/spainbuca
    2) I copied some time after the attack a screenshot of somebody following Spainbuca’s account (Carlos) showing some of his 17 july tweets before the attack. Discussing politics in the Ukraine. (Can I upload the pic somewhere?)
    3) In the Internet archive you also can find tweets of Spainbuca of March 2014 https://web.archive.org/web/20140316014711/https://twitter.com/spainbuca.
    4) Also it states that the account is created in 2010.
    5) Maybe nobody can proof Spainbuca lived in Kiev, or worked for ATC, but certainly there’s no proof that is was a fake account, Spainbuca lived in Rumania or elsewhere or that he is the product of a Russian action.

    New York time zone is UTC-5, not -7, so first tweet hour is 13:38!!!
    So how do you do a shill OP in just 18 mins?
