A former military officer is claiming the U.S. government "knows a lot more" than it is publicly revealing about the Malaysian jetliner that went missing more than a week ago.


Retired Lt. Gen. Tom McInerney said on Fox's "The Kelly File" Friday night that he suspects some type of criminal behavior and that it is possible the plane landed somewhere. He said all airfields in the area should be checked, including in Pakistan and in eastern Iran. 

"I know the U.S. government knows a lot more than they're talking about. And clearly, the NSA has a lot of data they're going through now ... I'm confident that the U.S. government has a much better picture than the Malaysian government and the Chinese government," McInerney said.

McInerney served as a pilot, commander and strategic planner in the U.S. Air Force.
