11:00 pm
all right. that's it for our show. i'll be back with even more from arlington tomorrow. as cnn brings you a bleacher report special at 2:30 eastern time. we'll see you next friday right back here on "unguarded" where the end of the game is just the start of the story. good evening again. i'm john burman sitting in for anderson. we have breaking news in the search for flight 370. that and a big gamble on how it's being done. this is a major development and it is not the only one as investigators raise to find something, anything before pingers from the boeing 777's black boxes stop working. four weeks with no signals from them or any sign of the plane. we'll show you how investigators plan to change that. we begin with breaking news out of ft. hood. of ft. hood. new information that may shed considerable light on how the rampage unfolded and what may
11:01 pm
have unfolded the killer specialist ivan holmes. people close to the investigation said a lot on and off camera. pamela, what is the latest tonight on what you're hearing? >> reporter: u.s. military official with direct knowledge of the investigation telling our barbara starr that that traumatic brain injury lopez reported came during a fall during a patrol. we learned from military officials today, that there was an argument that escalated between lopez and another soldier in the moments right before the shooting. officials believe that was the impetus. according to a father of one of the victims, it all started over a leave request form. cnn has learned in the weeks before his deadly rampage at ft. hood, army specialist ivan lopez was creating a stockpile of ammunition. sources say when lopez bought
11:02 pm
his handgun at this store, guns galore in killeen, texas on march 1, he purchased one what source calls a large amount of ammo. cnn has learned the 34-year-old returned to the store repeatedly to buy even more bullets. it's the same place where major nidal hasan bought the weapon he used in the 2009 ft. hood attack. the army said it now thinks the shootings started as a dispute with another soldier. >> we believe that the immediate precipitating factor was more likely an escalating argument in his unit area. >> reporter: cnn learned that lopez went to a base personnel building wednesday to pick up a form to request time off. the father of jonathan westbrook, one of the soldiers injured in the attack, says after lopez was told to come back on thursday, he snapped, returning a short time later with his gun. >> the first guy he shot right in front of my son was killed. and then he turned the gun
11:03 pm
towards jonathan, aimed it and fired. >> reporter: investigators are still trying to piece together an exact motive of the shooting, and why lopez came on base armed. tonight, they're looking at evidence such as his gun, extra ammunition, his reported mental health issues and the medications he was prescribed. on capitol hill, army officials told congress while lopez had a spotless service record, he also appeared to have an unstable psychiatric condition. >> he was season just last month by a psychiatrist. he was fully examined. as of this morning, we had no indication on the record of that examination that there was any sign of likely violence. >> reporter: sources tell cnn police searched the apartment where lopez has recently moved with his wife and young daughter but found no evidence such as a suicide note to explain the shooting. >> pamela brown with us again. pamela, today we heard from
11:04 pm
lopez's family. what are they staying? >> reporter: that's right. lopez's father breaking his silence for the first time in a statement, john. he said he's astonished, he's saddened by what happened and said, my son must not have been in the right mind. he was not like that. he also talked about his son's medical treatment for his mental health and the passing of his mother and grandfather and how that affected his existing condition. but despite reports that lopez only got 48 hours to go to puerto rico for his mother's funeral this past november, a military official telling cnn that the army actually offered him the full leave to attend his mother's funeral, which is 10 to 14 days, but that lopez chose not to take the full leave so that he could go to truck driving school. military officials making it clear today, john, that we may never know the full reason of what caused lopez to snap. >> some of those details seem to be coming in now.
11:05 pm
pamela brown, thanks so much. out of the 3 killed and 16 wounded, sergeant jonathan westbrook was among the first to be shot. he was hit three times, but he's making a great recovery and he got out of the hospital today. his wife, renee, joins us by phone. renee, i can't imagine what these last few days have been like for you. first off, tell us how your husband is doing. >> he's doing well. he's okay. i have a visual on him, so as long as i have visual on him and i know he's okay, everything is going to be all right. >> you have visual on him. so what was it like the first time you saw him after everything that had happened? >> i was just happy i could see him, i could hold him, and just let him know that i love him and i'm here for him. it was a whole process. through this whole healing process, i am here for him.
11:06 pm
words cannot explain, i was elated. i was just happy to see him. >> did he tell you what it was like when he realized he had been shot? >> i guess he was -- i guess he was just more than in shock, unbelieving. as well as shocked, as well. i was told to call him, because i just got off work. i saw a shooting at ft. hood. i said okay, i need to call. so i called him, and i did get in touch with him. i said, what's going on? i said, are you okay? he kind of hesitated in a way, and he said, well, i was one of the victims that had been shot. i said -- when he said that, it just didn't register at that. okay, he was shot. everything was just going through my mind. i was like, okay. so after that, i heard nothing
11:07 pm
else from him. at that time, he said he had gotten shot twice, but i guess after other evaluations, that he found out that he was shot three times in the chest and the arm. >> what kind of -- >> he's very -- i was very -- it was a very scary situation. >> it sounds like a terrifying situation. in terms of the recovery, what kind of process are you and your husband looking at right now? >> i'm believing he has to go through physical therapy, and they released him from the hospital. i'm believing he has to go through physical therapy and he has someone to come in and take care of the wound. it's going to be not slow, but a steady healing process for him. >> so you had to travel from mississippi to ft. hood after hearing your husband had been shot three times.
11:08 pm
>> yes. >> describe to me the moment you finally did see him. >> uh, wow. it was a wow moment. i was just happy to see him, because those hours, they felt like days and days, because i wanted to come right then, but i couldn't. so after i actually got here and got settled in and i actually saw my husband, it was like a big relief, a big sigh. pressure had been taken off, i could breathe again. so it was amazing. >> what was the first thing you said to him? >> i just hugged him. i guess my actions were bigger than words. i hugged him and told him that i loved him. it was just amazing. i was just glad that god gave him a second chance. >> all right. renee westbrook, our best to you
11:09 pm
and your husband. you guys are lucky to have each other and i hope you get to spend some very, very quality time together in the near future. >> thank you. >> now to the breaking news in the search for any sign of malaysian airlines flight 370. it has just resumed in the indian ocean. 13 planes and 11 ships are involved today. we first had been told the number was higher, which would have made this the biggest day in the search. turns out it was a clerical error. but in any case, the search is still on. first, malaysian officials briefed family members of the people on board flight 370 behind closed doors at a hotel in kuala lumpur, but people there say it was a waste of time. with no news about what happened to the plane or their loved ones. after the meeting, danica weeks, whose husband paul was on the plane, asked how can a commercial airliner simply disappear?
11:10 pm
she sat down with cnn's paula newton and said she needs answers for herself and for her children. >> sometimes i catch myself, you know, seeing the excitement of him coming home and i have to -- i have to get rid of that out of my brain quickly, because i can't let myself go to that level of excitement because that would only -- it's only going to make me crash further when i find out the real truth. which we're all expecting will be that the plane has crashed. but until that point, i can't grieve. >> how important is it that they keep looking for him, that they keep this going? >> hugely important. hugely important. as i said we need something, the family needs something. we need answers, not just for me, but for my children. >> have you started to think about the possibility that
11:11 pm
paul's sons will grow up, your sons will grow up and not know what happened to him? >> i thought -- i've thought of that possibility, yes. am i willing to accept it right now? no, i'm not at that point, because if this was me on that plane, pauley would be fighting and going everywhere, asking every question, chasing down to find out what happened to me. for our sons and for himself. so i just have to do my utmost right now and keep going to find the truth. this will all encompass me completely. >> again, four weeks now since malaysian airlines flight 370 vanished. tonight, the search has taken a new direction under water. for the first time, ships are scouring signs of the black boxes, but without conclusive evidence, it's really just a
11:12 pm
shot in the dark. kyung lah joins us with the latest. you could hear the determination in her voice not to give up the search. there does seem to be this creeping sense that search authorities are just guessing where the plane might be right now. are you getting that feeling there? >> reporter: i think they're admitting it, absolutely. we heard in the last press conference held by the head of the search team that basically they're not guarantied to find anything. they don't know if they're in fact looking in the right spot. they believe they are. they have the best educated guess, the scientists, the -- all the information is pointing to this particular area. this's why they have those two towed pinger locaters. one from the u.s., one from the uk, doing that 150-mile trek. they believe that's perhaps where they're going to find that
11:13 pm
evidence that that wife says she needs. yes, they're not sure they're looking in the right spot, john. >> the words we hear now are luck and best guess. it tells you exactly where this search is right now. kyung lah, thanks so much. the panel joins us next to talk about this. also, tom forman shows us how the latest search area was arrived at. and we'll show you the high tech undersea tools that just started working today. and also, revisit some of the longest running disappearances in aviation history. stay with us.

11:17 pm
breaking news tonight. searchers have resumed looking for flight 370 including under water even though in the absence of a debris field it could am to a shot in the indian ocean dark. possibly but not entirely. the search area may have shifted several times, but at least it only covers a particular patch of water. tom foreman explains how experts narrowed it all down but also why it might change yet again. >> reporter: john, if you look at these search areas lately, it can look a bit like chaos. look how they've been adding in here for a couple of weeks now, just moving all over the place, sometimes by hundreds of miles. but if you draw a line generally through the middle of all these areas, you might notice
11:18 pm
something. and that something is this. it matches pretty nicely to that great big track they established a long time ago based on these satellite pings. now, there are many ways they could be wrong here. many ways. for example, if you get the trajectory up here off by just a degree or two, you could be way off over here or way off over here. so your search area could be hundreds of miles off course. another way for example you might have the plane flying into a lower altitude than expected, in which case would get more wind resistance, slowing it down and end up much shorter than expected. in addition you might have a different speed calculation. we're not sure how fast it was going. if it was going 560 miles per hour, that makes it cover a certain amount of ground. if it's going 440 miles per hour, that's a different amount. and depending on when the fuel runs out, even a ten-minute difference at these kind of speeds can make a gigantic difference when it gets down to the water. but all that aside, they keep coming back to the same area,
11:19 pm
trying to figure out if it's in here. the fact they keep pounding the same general area suggests they have some confidence in this calculation, even if it's a long shot. john? >> tom foreman, thanks so much. joining us to talk about this, cnn analyst david gallo, co-leader of the search for air france flight 447. and director of special projects. former transportation department inspector general mary schiavo. she currently represents accident victims and their families. cnn aviation analyst and veteran private pilot miles o'brien. of course cnn aviation correspondent richard quest. miles, i want to start with you here. i've been listening to every word you've been saying about this. today you really say it's hail mary time. why? >> well, it is. because the batteries on these pingers, these devices which allow you to try to find them when they're under water, will expire -- the shelf life at least goes off in a couple of days. you have ships on-site. they have the ability to listen
11:20 pm
for the pings. even though we have no idea they're in the right area because we have no wreckage trail, you might as well put those listening devices underwater on the hope against hope that you get lucky and you can hear it. the range in these pingers on a good day is two miles. there's all kinds of conditions that can make it less. of course as the batteries go out, that can be reduced tremendously. so it is in fact a hail mary pass but they should do it. >> in football terms, at least in a football game they know where the end zone is when there's a hail mary. not sure they know where the end zone is here. richard quest, we hear about the assets now from skies, from space, from the surface and now underwater. still now that they've deployed the underwater devices is that reason for more hope? >> no more hope than there was earlier on, just more assets. they've started to add satellite into the whole search, as well. the satellites they were using at the lower part of the search brought up a lot of objects.
11:21 pm
when they went to find them, they could never find them. therefore it wasn't very valid. also there haven't many satellites actually looking at this part of the ocean normally. so they're having to retask those satellites. >> tom foreman said they keep refining the search based on new math and new calculations. i think a lot of people wonder if it is based on new calculations or they think they need to go to some place new. >> you have a group of people in kuala lumpur, in malaysia doing the calculations, the so-called international group, the working group, part of the investigation. and amongst that group are the ntsb, faa, the waip, rolls royce, boeing, the malaysians. all the experts. inmarsat. miles would like them to release the documents upon which they are refining the search. maybe there's a call for that to give more information. because what they appear to be doing is moving this box around and not really explaining why.
11:22 pm
do they have to explain why to us? that's an interesting question. >> david gallo, i want to bring you in here. as they're moving these assets around and changing the search area, now they have the towed pinger locater out there. how confident are you that the batteries in the black box are even still working, even still pinging? >> that's anyone's guess, john. here's the thing about that. going over an area and not hearing the pinger doesn't mean that the aircraft is not there. the tpl is useful if you do hear something. if you don't hear something not that useful. i think at this point, knowing where the plane isn't is important information, too. and the tpl won't exclude any place. >> doesn't really narrow it down very much then necessarily. mary -- >> but the -- >> go ahead. >> john, i like what i see. for air france 447, something that people thought, a plane people thought would never be found. we had a good last known position and we had the debris. the debris was good to say
11:23 pm
you're in the right area. but the retrofit of the debris led us on a two-month wild goose chase. we lost time with the debris. it was good old plowing back and forth, mowing the lawn of the ocean floor that found that aircraft. >> i'm often struck by the differences here. as you said there was debris there within days of that flight disappearing. here obviously no debris and we're a month into it already. mary, with the batteries either dying soon or perhaps already dead, what's the best case scenario here? is it still floating debris? and they seem to have changed what they're looking for in terms of debris from possible large objects to something very, very small. >> well, i think the best chances are for that underwater search. at this point they haven't turned up any wreckage. they keep refining the data points. that's good. we want them to do that.
11:24 pm
they want to do that. but at this point, i think the pinger is one thing that they will continue to use until the battery's out or maybe it's already gone. but then they can do the underwater search, the side scan sonar and other underwater technologies to locate it as they did in air france, realizing however that air france had those system status update messages. it was a wonderful cascade of little messages from the plane telling us they had problems so we knew right where it was. but i do think the underwater assets now hold the best promise. and if the plane's largely intact, it's fortunately a big target to find. >> and those resources being deployed now today for the first time. so we will have to wait some time now to see how well they're miles, richard mentioned it before, accusing you of wanting more data. explain to me what you're after here and how it could be helpful. you're essentially asking for open source here group think? >> yes, i think so. they say the best and brightest minds are analyzing this inmarsat data. but they say peer reviewed.
11:25 pm
it isn't peer reviewed in the conventional way that scientists would view it. it's proprietary information headed into an investigation that is considered secret. so we understand why they haven't released it. but this is bleeding edge science. this is the kind of thing that has never been done before by a satellite not designed to do this. why not open this up to the world, to the minds of the world? scientists, engineers the world over to pore over it. maybe there's a nugget in there. how does that compromise this investigation to do that? >> richard? >> i think because it's a slippery slope of what you then start -- the cockpit voice recorder, the actual tape of that. the inmarsat data. you start to sort of say let's all release all the evidence about the computer that was found. and it starts to become mushrooming about what you hold on. where i think you should and they should now be starting to look at, we are one month on, john. it's time for them to give a first written report, a statement of facts, so they we
11:26 pm
know exactly what we know and how they know it. >> david gallo, one month on, does this go on for two months, for three months? you've been involved with long, long searches before, obviously. when is it time to change the nature of it or at least admit you're not looking the same way you did before? >> right now, again, with air france one of our secrets was to make it a committee-free zone. so the committees are important. the sharing of knowledge is important. but at the end of the day it was a small group of people, a single team, a single ship, a single technology with a single mission and that was to find that aircraft. and we had to block out everything that we could and just get down to the mission of mapping the sea floor. it was a big task, but we got the task done. and again, nothing happens quickly once you get beneath the waves. we're going to have to have patience to see what this team turns up. >> mary, what do you make of this discussion? >> i think one thing to note is the first step on the written report, actually the first step
11:27 pm
is a public hearing, is an open hearing. and the key thing when the ntsb takes on a crash is with that first public hearing, the fact-finding hearing, they release the docket. there for public scrutiny go the human factors group, the aircraft group, the weather group, the air traffic control group. and they put all those documents on a public docket so the world can see. and i think that would be very useful with that first step. i don't want the written report to be the first step. i want a public hearing. >> a lot more to talk about this obviously. coming up next we'll take a closer look at the technology that is now part of the search, listening for pings from these black boxes. how long can it go? how far can it detect those sounds? later what happens when missing planes are never found and how often has that happened? that and more when 360 continues. four-wheel steering is why i get up in the morning.

11:31 pm
as we've been reporting, the search has resumed at this hour in the indian ocean for any sign of wreckage from malaysia airlines flight 370. for the first time the search is happening under water. high tech equipment from the united states is listening for pings from the plane's black boxes. randi kaye takes a look at the technology that now has an active role in trying to solve this mystery, the mystery of flight 370. >> reporter: this high tech listening device can glide along near the bottom of the sea at about 1,000 feet from the ocean floor. it's a u.s. navy hydrophone or underwater microphone called a towed pinger locater. search teams are counting on it to find the pinger mounted directly on the black boxes from
11:32 pm
flight 370. but time is running out for the pinger's battery life. >> what they're trying to do is get ears in the water while the pinger is still going. >> reporter: this is the sound it's listening for. the towed pinger locater, or tpl, is 30 inches long and weighs just 70 pounds. it's towed behind the ship that operates it, in this case the ocean shield, and generally moves at about 3 knots. that means with 150 miles or so to cover, just a sliver of the search area, it will take days. >> it does two things. it gets it down into that level. it also gets it away from a lot of the surface not. wind on the water creates noise, propellers, dolphins, animals, fish, they all make sounds. >> reporter: the device can pick up the pinger sounds in depths ranging from 50,000 feet from two miles away. here's why it's so critical to
11:33 pm
get that towed pinger locater down in the deep ocean. the block box can get stuck in something called a deep sound channel. about the 2,000 to 4,000 feet below the surface. if the sound does get trapped there and bounces around, the only way to pick it up may be through one of these pinger locater devices. >> sending the towed pinger down there, the tpl, will put you in that channel so they can hear that echoing or ricocheting sound. when it picks up the sound it's in real time sent up the cable of the boats. in real time the scientists and technicians on board the boat will be listening. >> reporter: pinger locaters have been used for years. in 1996, a tpl successfully located the black box for twa flight 800, though that was in shallow waters off new york. investigators used one in 2009 when air france flight 447 went down in the atlantic but found nothing.
11:34 pm
if they have any luck locating the pinger from flight 370, next they'll deploy this autonomous underwater vehicle. it maps the ocean floor. >> it will start running patterns back and forth, shooting sound out the side and taking pictures. it will show objects, shiny objects basically, bright objects that could be the plane. >> reporter: right now, that's the perfect scenario. but even the head of the search effort seems to be hedging his bets. >> hopefully, hopefully, the calculations putting us into about the right area. >> reporter: randi kaye, cnn, new york. >> our thanks to randi. joining me to talk again is analyst david gallo, also with us sylvan pascoe who was a technical adviser in the investigation of the air france 447 crash. and sylvan, let me start with you here. the towed pinger locater. in the water as we speak, searching for these pings from the black boxes. what do you think the chances are that lit find anything?
11:35 pm
>> well, in case of the air france, we had two towed pinger locaters. we went over the whole area. and the water is so deep that you have 10,000 meters of cable behind the ship. so it's very difficult to narrow down the position. it doesn't sound like you're very optimistic. is this just a case where it's better than nothing? >> i mean, in this case you have to try everything, everything. and especially the pingers are going to be operating for 30 days, maybe a little bit more. you never know. try everything. it's just as simple as that. >> david, so in addition to the towed pinger locater, the ship right now has the bluefin, the autonomous underwater vehicle right there. tell me when that would become useful. >> well, in some ways, in the traditional way of thinking you'd wait until you heard -- picked up the pinger locater, then deploy that. but i'm thinking if we have
11:36 pm
faith in that area, as big as it is, it can't really hurt anything to get that vehicle in the water, get some operational expertise in that area, see what you see, and start crossing areas off where the plane isn't. and i think that's important information now. so i think it can be valuable. but you don't want to burn out the teams, either. they want to be pretty judicious. the one thing i have to say is that once this gets going full speed, both vehicles in the water, we need to leave that team alone. because they're going to be plenty busy and they can't second guess what they're doing. >> they need to do their jobs without interference. interesting what you say about the bluefin. up until this point we've been told that it will probably just be used once they found debris, once they had a greater sense of an area to search. interesting that you suggest that maybe they need to start using it right now. sylvan, that make sense to you? >> absolutely. i mean, you can put everything you have under water because time is running out. so i would do exactly the same thing. >> you also, sylvan, say that you think that this is all right
11:37 pm
now obviously based on data, the analysis of the data. right now there's just a big math problem being solved by smart people in a room. do you think there's more data out there and do you think there needs to be a better analysis? >> that's a very good question. because in the case of air france, on one hand we had too much data. on the other hand we had too little data. the idea was to backtrack the data that could help us on the ocean as opposed to the air problem. so we sort of went through the data and then found new data that helped us narrow down the retro drift and the positions of the debris field. >> david it certainly doesn't sound in this case like it is case of too much data, does it? >> not where we need it, right. again this comes down to the confidence of that last known position, that swath that we moved to that richard quest showed, has talked about moving
11:38 pm
up that arc. if we can be confident about that box as big as it is then we need to find ways to whittle that down. but if that's the box, and we believe the plane's in that box, we can find it and we should find it if it's in that box. >> david gallo, sylvan pascoe, thanks for being with us, talking this through. a lot more to discuss. up next we'll dig deeper into the troubling notion that flight 370 might not be found anytime soon or ever at all. we'll show you some legendary aviation mysteries, including many that remain mysteries even now. ♪ ♪ ♪ ben! ♪ [ train whistle blows ] oh, that was close. you ain't lying. let quicken loans help you save your money with a mortgage that's engineered to amaze.

so in a time in human history when almost no one on earth is more than a text message away with satellite and drones and surveillance planes, the idea there could be no sign at all of a missing airliner, a big missing airliner for four weeks with all this looking it's hard to believe. it is not, however, unprecedented. again here's kyung lah. >> reporter: frustration mounts as the search continues for malaysia airlines flight 370. but look back through aviation history, and there are other
11:43 pm
mysteries that linger for months, years, even decades. there have been planes in the past that have completely disappeared. carroll gray is an aviation historian. he says the most storied and enduring mystery is the disappearance of amelia earhart. she vanished over the ocean in 1937 as she attempted to fly around the globe. >> there's still no concrete evidence as to what happened. >> reporter: her mystery unsolved. for a passenger plane like that to disappear, that's not unprecedented, either. >> no. and one that comes to mind is the british south american airways. >> reporter: two british south american airways jets and their 51 passengers disappeared in the infamous bermuda triangle in the 1940s. also that decade, five american bombers on a training mission vanished in the bermudas. even the search plane went missing all without a trace and still unsolved. then there's this, the flying tiger line. >> it went off in 1952 near
11:44 pm
guam, flying tiger line went off the radar, gone, disappeared. >> no wreckage. >> no. >> reporter: it was 1962. a u.s. military flight with more than 90 people on board unsolved. the crash of uruguay air force flight 571 was so mysterious that hollywood depicted the tale in the movie "alive." in 1972 the plane crashed in the andes mountains. the survivors resorted to cannibalism to stay alive until they were found. this mystery solved after 72 days. >> what are historians and bloggers saying right now ability about this modern mystery? >> a very weird event. a very strange event that doesn't lend itself to the normal sets of explanations. >> as a historian, how gripping

is this for you? >> phenomenally gripping. people are gripped by mysteries. things that are unsolved just sort of grab people. and especially when you have a common experience of flying. >> reporter: and that's why this historian says today's mystery must be solved. >> when you get on the plane the next time, are you going to wonder a little bit whether or not you're going to disappear? that's why it's so urgent that some satisfactory explanation happen fairly soon. >> reporter: kyung lah, cnn, los angeles. >> some food for thought there. will this mystery be solved? let's put that question to our panel, david gallo, miles o'brien and richard quest. let me ask a simple question to each of you down the line. david gallo first, do you think this plane will be found? >> yes. as long as we have the will to look. you've heard it that we must find it. air france was thought to be a plane that would never be found. and we know today that that search area was relatively -- a lot smaller than this area. but again, it's there someplace. it's a matter of getting the right break, finding the -- maybe doing the right number crunching so we refine that search area. but yeah, i think we'll find
11:46 pm
this plane. it's just a matter of will and time. >> do you think we're talking about a year, two-year, titanic thing where we're 70 years down the line? >> no, it could be tomorrow. it could be two years, tomorrow, a month from now. it's hard to say, john. >> miles, what do you think? >> it will be found. it's just a matter of time. will it take -- i don't think tomorrow is the day. again it could be. but i think we're talking at least on the other side of this winter coming up and maybe longer. >> richard? >> from the very beginning i've said it's not a question of if, it's a question of when. this plane will be found. >> that's a tremendous amount of optimism from you guys. interesting to me. a discussion we've been having that has exploded on social media over the last few minutes about the free flow of information in this case. miles, you've been calling for really the release of all the data, satellite data, radar data. more information out there to get more eyeballs on it. >> well, that would be pretty controversial. let's just start with inmarsat though. because this is unconventional
11:47 pm
data to be used in the context of an aviation accident investigation. it's a satellite not designed to track. it was some clever engineering that gave us these circles on the globe to look at. they involve use of the doppler effect to get an idea of which direction the plane might be going. it's fascinating, actually, and really never been employed in this man manner. why not at least open the books on that? >> why not release this to have professors at the best universities around the world? >> because it's a slippery slope and miles knows it. >> why not carve out this one thing, though? >> where do you stop? >> you stop right there. >> so you say now. what i do think is that i would like to see this investigation and the information being released four weeks on starting to look more like other investigations. i don't mean like the ntsb and debra hertzman releasing everything after asiana.
11:48 pm
i'm talk about more information on things like what did vietnam say? what was the time scale? an official time scale. those sort of things we would expect to find from any other investigative body by now. >> david in one word or less, who's right? miles or richard? >> both. >> both. safe call. david gallo wins with the diplomatic position there. all right, gentlemen, david gallo, miles o'brien, richard quest, really appreciate it. next we're going to return to fort hood to remember those who died. and we will honor how they lived.
