What’s the U.S. military doing to help in the search for a missing Malaysian plane? “We’re putting as much effort into it across the scope of our capabilities as is needed. says Rear Admiral John Kirby, Pentagon press secretary. “I wouldn’t get into the specifics of each and every one of those tools , because some of those tools we don’t talk about,” said Kirby. But he assured reporters in the Pentagon briefing room, “When the Malaysians are asking for help, for information, or whatever data, if we can provide it, if we can help them, we are helping them.”
