Danish engineer to play an important part in the re-opened investigation of Polish plane crash
SCND: February 4, 2016
The recent change of the Government in Poland paves the way for the Danish civil engineer to participate in a new study of the plane crash that has racked Poland for nearly six years. Many believe that the crash was a Russian assassination operation sanctioned by Putin himself.
The Polish government Tupolev, TU-154M crashed during the landing in heavy fog on April 10, 2010, in Smolensk, Russia. Was this crash caused by pilot errors, or was it a criminal act carried out by the Russians? This question is to be answered by the new Polish commission.
For several years now, and at his own expense, Danish engineer, Glenn Jorgensen, Ms. Sc., has been investigating the mechanics of the Smolensk crash, during which all 96 people on board were killed, including the President of Poland Lech Kaczyński, and several top NATO generals.
As previously reported by the Danish weekly “Ingeniøren,” Glenn Jorgensen's calculations show that the official explanation offered by a Russian MAC commission, that the crash in Smolensk was caused by pilot error during landing in heavy fog, cannot be true.
Working closely with many other experts around the world for nearly six years, Glenn Jorgensen has casted doubt on the official version of events. But, the experts who challenge the official version of the tragic event, found themselves on the sidelines and had been ignored by the Polish government led by the Civic Platform/PSL coalition. For, the PO government declared them to be nothing more then skeptics who have been cultivating “a conspiracy theory.”
Nevertheless, Glenn Jorgensen was determined to resist the pressure to obey the prevalent “conspiracy of silence,” and has repeatedly presented his findings to the Polish public.
The President of the new Investigative Commission hails from Boeing Corporation
After the change of government in Poland in October 2015, as a result of electoral landslide victory of the party led by the late President Kaczynski's twin brother, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, there has been a total turnaround.
Glenn Jorgensen and other skeptics of the official explanation will now have an official role in re-examination of the crash, since many in Poland suspect that it was simply an attack from Russia, and possibly, this attack was carried out in collaboration with former communist agents in Poland who supported the government of Polish Prime Minister at that time, Donald Tusk. Currently, Tusk serves as the President of the European Council.
The new Minister of Defense of Poland Antoni Macierewicz has appointed Dr. Waclaw Berczynski, a retired senior engineer from Boeing, in the United States, to become the Chairman of this commission.
The work will be complicated by the fact that the wreckage of the airplane still remains in Russian custody, and despite a resolution passed in the European Parliament, the Russians have not done anything to return it. The Russians have announced that they do not intend to cooperate with the new Polish commission.
The majority of the commission members are from Poland or are of Polish descent. Among the four non-Polish members is Glenn Jorgensen, who runs his own consulting engineering company.
Jorgensen will spend all his time on this task.
He says he will set his own business endeavors aside in order to devote himself to the work of the commission. He does not know yet about any remuneration for the work on the study.
However, it is not essential for the Dane. He says he has saved up and is ready to work almost full time on investigating the crash for the next one to two years.
Why do you spend this much time and money to investigate a Polish plane crash, we asked him?
'In my opinion it should not be possible to get away with a cover up."
Should the truth come out at any cost?
The first meeting of the new commission is to be held in early March 2016. However, the commission was met with suspicion by officials from the former government of Donald Tusk and Ewa Kopacz, who risk getting indicted for their role in the Smolensk crash. They argue that the conclusion is written in advance. Obviously, both Waclaw Berczynski and Glenn Jorgensen deny their claims.

In 2007, a group of law enforcement officers raided Browder’s offices in Moscow and stole $230 million of taxes that his fund’s companies had paid to the Russian government. Browder’s attorney Sergei Magnitsky investigated the incident and uncovered a sprawling criminal enterprise. A month after Sergei testified against the officials involved, he was arrested and thrown into pre-trial detention, where he was tortured for a year. On November 16, 2009, he was led to an isolation chamber, handcuffed to a bedrail, and beaten to death by eight guards in full riot gear.

In 1999, the “Family” surrounding Boris Yeltsin went looking for a successor to the ailing and increasingly unpopular president. Vladimir Putin, with very little governmental or administrative experience - he’d been deputy mayor of St. Petersburg, and briefly, director of the secret police - nevertheless seemed the perfect choice: a “faceless” creature whom Yeltsin and his cronies could mold in their own image. Russia and an infatuated West were determined to see in him the progressive leader of their dreams - even as Putin, with ruthless efficiency, dismantled the country’s media, wrested control and wealth from the business class, and destroyed the fragile mechanisms of democracy.
From the Editor's Desk: "Blowing Up Russia" contains the allegations of ex-spy Alexander Litvinenko against his former spymasters in Moscow which led to his being murdered in London in November 2006. In the book he and historian Yuri Felshtinsky detail how since 1999 the Russian secret service has been hatching a plot to return to the terror that was the hallmark of the KGB.
Vividly written and based on Litvinenko's 20 years of insider knowledge of Russian spy campaigns, Blowing Up Russia describes how the successor of the KGB fabricated terrorist attacks and launched a war. Writing about Litvinenko, the surviving co-author recounts how the banning of the book in Russia led to three earlier deaths.
Already during the first night of the crash, the Russians were removing the most important pieces of evidence from the crash site, that is, the remains of the Polish President’s Tupolev, TU-154M. Parts of the aircraft were transported away without any prior planning, and some of them were purposefully destroyed. Read more here
"Russian Image Management"
The trip to Smolensk was expected to highlight Russia finally admitting culpability in the massacre, after long having blamed it on the Germans, an atrocity they had tried to conceal for over 70 years.
As for the reception committee, it had different ideas. Putin wasn’t looking forward to such an occasion. Into this poisonous reception brew was President Kaczynski’s well-known public criticism of Moscow and Putin, a habit that has ended the lives of others within Russia – and abroad. A few discouraging Russian requirements – that Kaczynski could not attend in any official capacity – did not halt the Poles. Kaczynski would go anyway on non-official, “personal” business. To Russians, such a distinction would be meaningless, not lessening the possible international excoriation of such an event. A problem ripe for a modern, Russian solution: a tragic, ‘natural’ accident.
World-renowned forensic pathologist goes on the record: "I have been doing autopsies for 50 years, and I've investigated more than fifteen, twenty airplane crashes […] I've been in countries all over the world where families think that the government is hiding something. Whether it is Zimbabwe or Israel, or Philippines, the government may not like an outside person checking to make sure they got it right. [But,] they never interfered with that. The family, the next of kin, always has the right to do what the wishes of the family are. In the 21st century, the body of the dead person no longer belongs to the state. It belongs to the family. So, it is unusual - something that I have never experienced before - where the government [of Poland] has not permitted the famil[ies]" to conduct independent forensic examinations of their loved ones' remains [...] I've never heard of a body coming back to a country and the family being unable to open up a casket. I've never heard of the family not being able to get an autopsy… Read more here
