Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (CNN) – After more than three weeks, the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has come down to this: a lot of floating rubbish, hundreds of heartbroken relatives and, now, quibbling over words that everyone acknowledges offer no clues into what happened to the doomed plane.
Malaysian authorities on Tuesday released the transcript of radio chatter between air traffic controllers and the plane in the hour or so before it vanished while flying from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing on March 8 with 239 people on board.
And while the transcript offers no clues about the plane's mysterious disappearance, one glaring discrepancy has highlighted criticisms of how Malaysian officials have handled the investigation.
