Report: Missteps and miscommunication hurt search for Flight 370

(CNN) – Despite a number of inexplicable setbacks, missteps and flubs related to the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, Malaysian authorities still insist that they wouldn't have done anything differently in this investigation.

On Friday, the search zone abruptly moved again, about 700 miles northeast, when radar revealed the plane likely flew a shorter distance than estimated.

Malaysian authorities admit this latest change only came about when two international teams trying to pinpoint the crash site actually started talking to each other, according to a Wall Street Journal report.

So why weren't they working together before?

Wall Street Journal reporter Jon Ostrower breaks it down for CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper."
