Malaysia’s defense minister on Monday defended his military’s failure to scramble a fighter jet to follow a Malaysian airliner when it veered off course and vanished two months ago, saying it wasn’t seen as a hostile object. Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 became invisible to civilian radar when its transponder stopped transmitting during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8. “If you’re not going to shoot it down, what’s the point of sending it up?” Defense Minister Hishammuddin asked.
