Default Egyptian Air debris discovered

EGYPTIAN authorities have confirmed to EgyptAir that the wreckage of the missing flight MS804 has now been found.

In an English statement on Facebook, the airline said that Cairo’s foreign ministry has “confirmed finding the wreckage” near Karpathos Island.

“EgyptAir resource stated that the Egyptian Ministry of Civil Aviation has just received an official letter from the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs that confirms the finding of wreckage of the missing aircraft No. MS 804 near Karpathos Island,” the statement read.

The airline said that family members of passengers and crew have been informed and the Egyptian investigation team is still searching for other remains of the plane. “We extend our deepest sympathies to those affected,” EgyptAir said.

The plane was believed to have crashed en route from Paris to Cairo early Thursday with 66 people on board.

Now the debate will begin; malfunction of the plane, or terrorist action.

Donald Trump on Thursday declared that EgyptAir flight MS804, which crashed earlier in the morning, "looks like yet another terrorist attack."

"When will we get tough, smart and vigilant? Great hate and sickness!" Trump tweeted.

Trump's speculation came before Egypt's aviation minister reportedly said the plane was "more likely" brought down by terrorism than a technical failure.

French President Francois Hollande confirmed the crash of the plane, which authorities said was carrying 66 people.

Egypt's aviation minister had said earlier Thursday that investigators were not ruling out any scenario, including terrorism. But he also cautioned against "hypothesizing" about the plane's demise before investigators locate the plane's wreckage.

Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates, asked about Trump's tweet on "Morning Joe," said it is "always better to wait until you actually know what the facts are before you open up."

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee has a history of speculating about plane disappearances.

Following the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappearance in 2014, Trump occasionally tweeted updates about the plane. In March of 2014, he floated a theory that exploding lithium ion batteries destroyed the plane. He also complained that the US was footing a disproportionate share of the bill to find the plane.

The stupid remarks from someone who is a candidate running for president does not really didn't know shows the man has no idea of how our foreign relationships with some of our allies there should not be talking about what he thinks are the facts surrounding the crash.

Using a chance to speak up, to show just how tough he is, is dangerous and ignorant.

So much for the meeting with Kissinger, as I don't think he would speak up as such when he was in the administration unless he had all of the facts before him.

He was more cautious than Trump has been.
