Hi all! My friend wrote sentence A,I was not quite sure whether it means the same as B. Can you help me with that?

a) As for who, after all, is the director of this tragedy, no one knows.
b) As for who on earth is the director of this tragedy, no one knows.

    It's hard to imagine any context in which the two phrases would mean the same thing, but as you haven't given us any context, we can't say for sure.
