Malaysian officials say the search for missing Flight 370 has widened from Australia to Kazakstan, now that they believe the jet carrying 239 people was purposefully diverted from its intended flight path when it disappeared more than one week ago.

Malaysian Airline officials confirmed today that they believe the last words from the cockpit, "All right, good night," were spoken by the co-pilot, deepening suspicions that someone on board the plane was deceiving ground control.

The politics of the pilot have also come into question, after reports he supported the pro-democracy opposition in Malaysia. Aviation industry reporter Andy Pasztor,who has been covering the story for The Wall Street Journal, joins Here & Now's Meghna Chakrabarti to discuss the latest developments.
