Lufthansa Airlines issued what they called a “swift and seamless clarification” on the mental history of co-pilot Andreas Lubitz, who intentionally crashed a Germanwings jet in the French Alps last week, murdering 150 people on board.
According to The Washington Post:
“In 2009, Lubitz had taken several months off during his training to become a pilot. When he resumed the program, Lufthansa said, he provided the airline ‘medical documents’ that noted his bout of severe depression.”
When Lufthansa issued the “clarification,” Shepard Smith of Fox News was dumbfounded by the company’s attempt to re-write history.
Speaking to guest Judge Andrew Napolitano, Smith pointed out that last week, Lufthansa definitively and unambiguously proclaimed they had no idea what could have led Lubitz to commit the horrible act. Tuesday’s announcement revealed a complete reversal of the previously stated position.
