Well, Turkish propaganda aside (protecting the reputation of their charter
carrier), I don't see any indication of why they didn't just set power
and fly a pitch setting by the ADI, while they figured out the conflicting
airspeed indications.  But what do I know.

The investigation is not over.  Let's save the whitewashing for later, eh?
In cases like this, nobody's blameless, and the only people getting sued
will likely be both Boeing and the airline, since they're always the
organizations that get sued after a crash.
