Four More Jets Set to Join Search For Missing Airliner
Posted March 23rd, 2014 @ 11:52am by KFBK News

Day 16 of the search for a missing Malaysian airliner continues in the Indian Ocean as new satellite data delivered by the French show signs of floating debris, as big as 70 feet long and 40 feet wide, in a spot previously identified by Chinese and Australian authorities.

Eight airplanes, and one ship conducting search efforts came up empty, but four more jets on loan from China and Japan are joining the search at day break.

The Chair of the House Homeland Security Committee, Texas Republican Mike McCaul, appeared on "Fox News Sunday" to criticize search efforts, saying the focus should have been on the Indian Ocean much sooner.

McCaul is also saying that since the dots have yet to be connected on exactly what happened, terrorism cannot be ruled out. “We never ruled out terrorism,” committee chairman and Texas GOP Rep. Mike McCaul told “Fox News Sunday,” 15 days after the passenger jet disappeared while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. “Something happened in the cockpit or with the passengers.”
