House Homeland Security Committe Chair on Malaysia Plane: This Was Not an Accident, It Was Intentional

Rep. Mike McCaul (R-TX): “There’s still a lot of mystery behind this. One thing we do know: this was not an accident. It was an intentional, deliberate act to bring down this airplane, and the question is who is behind that. There are a lot of warning signs along the way. The fact the transponder was turned off, the flight pattern changed abruptly. We had two Iranians with stolen passports that were not checked with Interpol, which we would have done in this country; one-way tickets bought with cash that the hijackers were known for doing. So, there are a lot of these questions raised, but I think one thing is very clear, Chris, is that this was an intentional, deliberate act that unfortunately probably killed 239 people.”
