US investigators privately dismissed the explosion theory as nonsense. Publicly, Secretary of State Madeleine Albright was more diplomatic. MADELEINE ALBRIGHT, SECRETARY OF STATE: We are working very closely with the Egyptians and will obviously continue to do so, and I think... speculation in this case does not help at all. In fact, data from the plane's black boxes virtually rules out a bomb...or any type of in flight explosion. Instead, all of the evidence...to date...supports the suspicion that EgyptAir flight 990 was deliberately taken down by co-pilot Gamil al-Batouti. Sources say al-Batouti can be heard on the jet's cockpit voice tape...repeating a prayer...more than 10 times... during the plane's final moments. Some Egyptian authorities argue the prayer was a response to an airplane failure, but the prayer began BEFORE the fatal dive. And the flight data recorder supports the suicide theory. It's clear the co-pilot continued PUSHING the plane DOWN...even as the pilot desperately PULLED back on HIS control column...in a futile attempt to save the plane.))
