Who are Johanna and Kurt Ganthaler? According to the breaking news of the moment, they were a couple who narrowly missed AirFrance flight 447, but were involved in an auto accident today, in which Johanna was killed.
However, if you go back one week, you find a story about the four people who missed Flight 447. Strangely, none of these people are named Johanna and Kurt Ganthaler.
Instead, in the article from last week, they are Amina and Claude Jaffiol from Montpellier, France. Claude appears to have some serious connections to an unnamed Dutch diplomat, whom they asked to use his influence to get them on the flight. What sort of Dutch diplomat would have that kind of pull, anyway?
A person of a conspiratorial frame of mind might suggest that Amina/Johanna and/or Kurt/Claude were targets of some sort. Such a person might want to know who these people are/were.
