PiotrK (16050) writes "Internet search engines indexed the news about 2010 Polish Air Force Tu-154 crash several hours before the crash actually happened. Is it a standard practice of counter-intelligence forces to feed the major search engines with their version of the news?

One example is discussed at http://www.itv24.com.pl/film/891/oredzie_w_tvp_info_przed_katastrofa_tu-154 and the old version of the page published before the crash is still available at one of the yahoo servers (the link is on this page http://tinyurl.com/zuoooo1 ). While YouTube has versions already doctored by someone (counter-intelligence?).

Will this investigation conclude that a false radio navigational beacon was used or will it follow the fate of similar crash described at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1986_Mozambican_Tupolev_Tu-134_crash"
