When the news first broke of the plane, both Egyptian and Russian authorities seemed to rush to deny that ISIS had anything to do with it, but it looks like there’s more and more evidence that it might be just that.
The CNN analyst offered that if it was indeed confirmed to be ISIS, then it would be the “largest terror attack since 9/11.”
