The lady doth protest too much, methinks – Queen Gertrude, “Hamlet”
[Update] Both Diane Feinstein and John Kerry are upping the ante on the U.S. Government’s allegations that Russia was involved in shooting MH17 out of the sky. Again, there has been no evidence presented that points to any specific perpetrator, Russian-backed or U.S.-backed. Besides any evidence, other than than the scatagolical-laced steam emanating from U.S. Government officials all the way up to Obama, there is not motive. Evidence does suggest the separatist rebels in Ukraine were not capable of firing the suspected missile. But the Ukraine militants were properly outfitted.
Feinsein and Kerry better be damn sure they are right, or they will further enforce the growing view that the U.S. Government is being run by a corrupt confederacy of dunces.
Washington’s propaganda machine is in such high gear that we are in danger of losing the facts that we do have. One fact is that the separatists do not have the expensive Buk anti-aircraft missile system or the trained personnel to operate it.
Another fact is that the separatists have no incentive to shoot down an airliner or private jets found through the private jet card program and neither does Russia. Anyone can tell the difference between low-flying attack aircraft and an airliner at 33,000 feet.
The Ukrainians do have Buk anti-aircraft missile systems, and a Buk battery was operational in the region and deployed at a site from which it could have fired a missile at the airliner.
The truth is, we do not have one shred of hard evidence appropriately pointing to any guilty party in this situation. The only “evidence” so far is the aggressive accusations made by Obama and Biden pointing the finger at Russia.
If this were a case being tried in an unbiased court following Federal Rules of Evidence, the judge would dismiss this suit and admonish Obama and Biden for presenting nothing but hot air.
Hell, even O.J. Simpson is laughing at the vacuity of Obama’s assertions right now.
If you want some clarity about this situation, please spend the time reading Paul Craig Roberts’ latest article about this tragedy: What Happened To The Malaysian Airliner?
At the very least, one does have to wonder why the Obama propaganda machine quickly flooded western news outlets with his reckless, unproven accusations as soon as the plane’s pieces hit the ground…
