King added that while they have yet to find any terrorist connection, investigators should still be looking for signs of terrorism, especially with the two men who boarded the plane with stolen passports.
"There's nothing out there indicating it's terrorists. Doesn't mean it's not, but so far nothing has been picked up by the intelligence community from Day One," he said.
"Just the fact that they were there and written off so quickly as having any threat. I mean, why did they have to get on that plane to seek asylum? The fact that it was so easy for them to get on with stolen passports. I just creates a terrorist atmosphere," he added about the two Iranian men who were on the plane.
