WASHINGTON (AP) — Senior U.S. intelligence officials said Tuesday that Russia was responsible for "creating the conditions" that led to the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, but they offered no evidence of direct Russian government involvement.1) The Ghost said that Russia had no direct involvement on day one. Sane and rational people knew this from day one. Now how many of these politicians are going to publicly apologize for their war mongering statements? 2) The Ghost objects strenuously to the "responsible for 'creating the conditions' " bullshit. The "conditions" were created by those who overthrew the elected government in Kiev. The persons who created the conditions have been caught on tape and they reside in US embassies and the White House.
Asked why civilian airline companies were not warned about a possible threat, the officials said they did not know the rebels possessed SA-11 missiles until after the Malaysian airliner was shot down.Really? Ukraine has "Buk" systems purchased from Russia. Many of the separatists have gotten arms from Ukraine armories and nobody in the "intelligence" communities considered that those separatists may have gotten their hands on such weapons? Even after 12 Ukrainian planes had been shot down? The "Buk" systems date back to the 1970's 1970's. Sad state of "intelligence" if you ask me.
