At an early stage in this sad affair, much was made of a statement by a Malaysian official (the PM possibly?) that the SSR and ACARS systems were deliberately switched off from on-board the aircraft. Later on, something similar was said about the inflight entertainment system.

I'm not seeing any of those statements in this report. There's a reference to how the transponder could be switched off, but not that it was, only that the aircraft dropped off SSR.

Similarly I see a reference to the IFE not logging on to the SATCOM system late in the flight whereas it had previously, but not that this was the result of deliberate action.

Am I missing something in the 500+ pages? Is there something buried in the logs that I don't understand?
