In Lebanon, conspiracy theories are a national sport. And the case of the Ethiopian airlines flight 409 is not excluded. Since the crash of the plane last month, the search of bodies as well as the investigation is still going on. On the street level, everyone has its own version. Disparities as that Americans were training new bombs under water to arguments that a missile hit the plane. The truth is that everyone was expecting that once that both black boxes were recovered, the one that contains the data and the one that contains the pilot cabin conversations, will dissipate such conspiracy theories.
Far from it, they fund the boxes but surprisingly, the apparatus in which the cabin’s conversations are supposed to be recorded is missing, ad thus opening the floor for more justified eccentric theories.
