He was probably racing to get that out before Bernard Zeigler (Exec.
VP - Engineering of Airbus) said it couldn't *possibly* be either the
aircraft or the weather, hence it *must* be pilot error.  (Ziegler did
this after the Indian Airlines A320 crash at Bangalore, only a few
hours after the crash, long before even the most superficial investi-
gations had been done.)
