Senator Klobuchar on Missing Nigerian Girls: 'All Options Have to be on the Table'

On "New Day" Wednesday, Senator Amy Klobuchar, (D) Minnesota, talked about the role the U.S. can play in helping to find over 200 missing girls in Nigeria.

"I think we have to take the lead here," she said.

"I think the people on the ground have to - are going to have to determine if Special Forces are necessary. We don't even know where these girls are right now. But clearly all options have to be left on the table."

Poll: 46% of Americans Think Flight 370 Search is in the Wrong Place

As officials from China, Malaysia and Australia meet Wednesday to discuss plans for the next phase of the search for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, a new CNN/ORC poll conducted by telephone from May 2 through May 4, gives a closer look at what Americans think about the plane, why and how it disappeared, and if we should still be looking for it.

Feedback shows that more than half of Americans do believe we’ll find out what happened to the plane, but over 70% feel that the Malaysian government has not done a good job in managing the search, and nearly half feel the search is happening in the wrong place.

When it comes to conspiracy theories like pilot suicide or terrorism, the numbers show Americans strongly believe something nefarious happened.

But on "New Day" Wednesday, aviation experts David Soucie and Mary Schiavo said there isn't enough evidence to support those conclusions.

On the pilots, Soucie said because of the time of the disappearance,  he'd have to assume it was one person acting and "the chance that they would have acted together on this is astronomical."

Schiavo said the fact the FBI checked computers and the lead pilot's flight simulator and found nothing means she doesn't want to rush to judgement.

"I’m gonna keep the jury out on that one," she said.
