ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and British Defense Secretary Philip Hammond say terrorism can't be ruled out in the lost Malaysian flight. They also say they can't be sure that Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu will keep his word on further incursions into Ukraine. "I don't think at this point we can rule anything in or out. I think we have to continue to search, as we are. And you know the United States continues to stay committed. We have moved two of our sophisticated locators to the Perth area," said Chuck Hagel. "All the evidence suggests that the Russian agenda is being very much run by President Putin personally, and other Russian players including Minister Shoigu. We do not know to what extent all of those people are really inside the inner circle, in which President Putin is planning this exercise," said Hammond.
