What they’re hiding about EgyptAir 804

Browsing the internet, Dalrymple comes across some analysis of the EgyptAir Flight 804 crash affair that has

a degree of certainty

EgyptAir 804 Shot Down with Electronic Pulse – Intel Report – 5-19-16,

the summary of the exposition (the full theory is set out in the YouTube video) reads:

Mossad did it

Mossad did it

Stew Webb and Tom Heneghan go over the latest Intel from US and French Intel concerning the EgyptAir 804 crash. They have been told by French Intel it was taken down with an Electronic Pulse weapon and Israel did it. Only Israel and the US have this type of weapon. A French satellite picked up the shoot down.

Imagine, says Dalrymple,

trying to discuss the matter with the author of this opinion. Before long you would have entered a mental labyrinth from which there was no exit. Any evidence you adduced would be discounted as having been manufactured by the very conspirators who brought the aëroplane down. His conclusion would be irrefutable: the very attempt to refute it would prove to him just how far the conspirators had succeeded in covering their tracks.

UK legal system: encourages and motivates terrorism through its nonsensical procedures and judgments

UK legal system: to blame for the bringing down of Egyptair Flight 804 because of the way it encourages and motivates terrorism worldwide through its nonsensical procedures and judgments

Another observer says:

We can blame the nonsense UK legal system for encouraging and motivate terrorism.

Dalrymple comments:

One imagines that the evidently enraged writer had had some slight legal problem in Britain and that he did not fully understand the arcane process by which it was resolved, probably not in his favour. Be that as it may, it is not easy to see why or how deficiencies of the law in Britain (I leave aside the fact that Scottish law is different from English) should have encouraged or motivated someone to blow up an aëroplane going from Paris to Cairo.

A third critic remarks:

It is up to the authorities to get this sorted out, it seems to me they are turning a blind eye to it. After all this is not the first time. Corruption and back-handers come to mind.

Dalrymple comments:

The best interpretation that I can give to the above is that the security authorities at the Paris airport (at all airports?) have been bribed consistently not to do their work properly. By whom they have been bribed the author does not venture: perhaps by the terrorists, perhaps by the cartel or cabal of airlines who do not wish their passengers to be further inconvenienced by security measures, about which they already grumble. On the other hand, of course, terrorism can hardly be good for the airline business.

Such commentators, writes Dalrymple, feel that

they have understood what others have not, that they have penetrated an essence of events that less astute or well-informed persons have not been able to divine. If you listen to any conversation in any bar of any provincial town, you will soon realise that almost everyone involved in it is party to the inner workings of the world, though by day they are all minor functionaries in businesses or organisations whose headquarters are elsewhere.

Henry Cotton

How do we know doctors aren’t in the grip of collective delusions?

Dalrymple notes that an untreated psychotic’s situation can be desperate, but points to the danger of professional abuse once authority is handed over to alleged experts.

He reminds us that among the treatments developed by psychiatrists are

  • frontal leucotomy: nerve pathways in brain lobes are severed from those in other regions
  • Metrazol-induced convulsion therapy: shocks are administered, giving rise to convulsions
  • insulin coma therapy (Insulinschockbehandlung): the patient is turned hypoglycemic with repeated injected insulin

NJ State Hospital for the Insane, Trenton (John Notman, 1848)

Reviewing Andrew Scull’s Madhouse: A Tragic Tale of Megalomania and Modern Medicine (2005), Dalrymple looks at the case of Henry Cotton, head of the New Jersey State Hospital for the Insane at Trenton.

Cotton believed that madness was caused by focal sepsis — subclinical infection of the teeth, tonsils, sinuses and colon. The answer

was to remove the teeth and tonsils, wash out the sinuses, and cut out the colon. The latter operation, performed in the asylum by Cotton himself — though he had no formal training in surgery — had a death rate of up to 33 per cent.

The operation was a success but the patient died

Cotton was undeterred.

He claimed a very high success rate for his operations, many of which were forced upon unwilling patients: 85% of his lunatics were cured by them, he said. A self-promoter and publicist, he was lionised, especially in Britain.

His claims were disputed,

particularly by Phyllis Greenacre, who proved that the chief clinical effect of his operations was death.

But Cotton

was protected by his mentor at Johns Hopkins, Adolf Meyer, an intimidating pedant rather than a real scientist who was the doyen of US psychiatry for many decades. He wanted to avert a scandal that would damage the standing and power of the profession, and was prepared to countenance the continued mutilation of patients by Cotton to do so.

Meyer suppressed Greenacre’s work and was to write

a laudatory obituary of Cotton, though he must have known by then that Cotton was responsible for hundreds of deaths and untold misery.

How, asks Dalrymple, did so flimsy and, to our eyes, foolish a theory of the cause of madness come to be accepted? Dalrymple points out that

  • the germ theory of disease, which elucidated so many mysteries, was comparatively new
  • the syphilitic cause of general paralysis (from which up to a fifth of the asylum population suffered) had just been discovered
  • hidden infections do often result in acute confusion in the elderly, including hallucinations

It was a short step to hypothesise an infective cause for all madness.

believed in his theory to such an extent that, as a prophylactic, he extracted the teeth of two of his sons and subjected one of them to a colectomy. (Both committed suicide as adults.) Later he had his own teeth extracted, believing focal sepsis to be the cause of his angina.

The calibre of the British establishment painfully and pitifully exposed

On the deep wrong-headedness of the powerless William Hague, and on the absurd Sir Christopher Meyer’s ‘foolish and horrible’ criterion of strength.

How embarrassingly feeble is England today! Yet its moribund establishment — especially in the form of the effœte Foreign Office — has lost none of its self-importance. Dalrymple draws attention to a verse from Proverbs:

Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.
