The heads of the House and Senate intelligence committees said Sunday that they see no sign yet of a terrorism link in the disappearance of a Malaysian passenger plane that has been missing since March 8.

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said on CNN's "State of the Union" that there has been no evidence of foul play by terrorists."There's speculation, but there's nothing," she said.

Similarly, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) said on "Fox News Sunday" that there is "nothing yet that has come out of the investigation that would lead me to conclude that there was anything other than a normal flight that something happened, that something went wrong."

Rogers noted that investigators are comparing forensics on the pilots' computers with a full background check on every crew member and passenger, and that the process would take time. "We’re just going to have to be patient as this thing unfolds," he said.
