Frustration with the search for missing flight MH370 boiled over into chaotic scenes as Chinese relatives were dragged away from journalists. They were attempting to speak to Chinese journalists outside the daily press conference in Kuala Lumpur. A BBC reporter was pushed away from the relatives, who were carrying banners criticising the handling of the case. Teams from 26 countries are trying to find flight MH370, which went missing on 8 March with 239 people on board. One of the relatives, a middle-aged woman, cried: "They give different messages every day! Where´s the flight now? Find our relatives! Find the aircraft!" The Malaysian government said

If our government knows where the plane is as has been alluded then the only excuse for not letting these families know is negotiation for their freedom.
24-48 hrs that started last week is NOT good enough

7:13 pm
The White House has also confirmed the FBI is assisting with the investigation into the missing airliner.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said Malaysia was also speaking to US aviation and transport accident investigation agencies, the BBC reported.

He added: “We are finding that the level of cooperation with the Malaysian government is solid, and we are working closely with the Malaysians as well as our other international partners in this effort to find out what happened to the plane and why it happened.”

6:06 pm
The FBI and US Justice Department have offered to help the Malaysian government with its investigation ever since the plane went missing.

However, it was not until today that they were formally invited to join the inquiry.

Speaking to USA Today, Attorney General Eric Holder said the US and Malaysian governments have been “in ongoing conversations about how we can help.”

Holder added: “We’re working with authorities, but we don’t have any theories (on the cause of the plane’s disappearance).”

4:09 pm
The FBI has confirmed today it is formally joining the investigation into the missing airliner .

One of its roles will be to analyse some of the computer hard-drives which were seized at the pilots’ homes.

As reported by USA Today, the material, which includes a flight simulator, could soon be sent to an FBI laboratory in Quantico, Virginia.

Sound familiar?

Malaysian officials are tossing this around, speculating endlessly—to avoid blame and the lawsuits that would follow. Boeing knows nothing either, nor does Rolls Royce.

Hey, the plane just wandered off somewhere, not our fault.

Color me cynical, but that’s what I believe. YOu?

Malaysia Airlines is state owned and run. Expect incompetence and expect the media to overlook it.

Remember the Chilean miners? Did the media criticize the mine’s management? No, it was state owned and the media (socialist) does not criticize government as a matter of coarse...so the hoopla became about the rescue. Hooray, for the rescue! But...if say the Koch Brothers owned that mine...look out, the media would call for them to be executed on day two.

When they find the plane the media will start in with the usual fair, sappy tributes to the passengers.

Forget accountability.

So far, there has been a lot of speculation about this mystery; some of it defames the pilots, both of whom may well be innocent of wrong doing. I hope they find out what really happened for real, and soon.

She speaks the truth.

Strange how under this admin the FBI is always the last to arrive. However, by next year if you , average taxpaying US citizen, jaywalk they'll be waiting for you in the middle of the street.

Our govt knows exactly where that plane is. They are just not sharing it with us at the moment.
