Has the US Navy said anything about their radar at Diego Garcia? If the plane went to the Ind, ocean they should have had it on their radar—

During Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak’s bizarre and alarming press conference last night on missing airliner #MH370, he revealed that the multi-country search has now turned to a vast swath of the Indian Ocean.
Many civilian observers pulled out their maps and are asking questions about Diego Garcia. Nope, not a person named “Diego Garcia,” but Naval Support Facility Diego Garcia, which “provides logistic support to operational forces forward deployed to the Indian Ocean and Persian Gulf areas of responsibility in support of national policy objectives” on “an atoll of the Chagos Archipelago in the British Indian Ocean Territory, located 7 degrees south of the equator.”

Well, it’s not exactly “top secret.”
Just got off the phone with friend who says Diego Garcia has radar systems that HAD to pick up that 777. Why has the media not asked about?—
