Congressman Says Malaysia Airlines Disappearance ‘Intentional, Deliberate’

Mar 16, 2014

House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mike McCaul on Sunday called the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 "intentional" and "deliberate."

McCaul said on Fox News Sunday that he believes the evidence points toward problems in the cockpit with the pilot and copilot.

Malaysia's prime minister said this weekend that the plane was deliberately diverted and officials have confirmed that the pilots are part of the investigation. But on CNN, former Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte cautioned against any one theory and stressed that the passengers should be investigated, too.
