Senior U.S. Intelligence Officials: Russia Was Not Directly Involved, and The Most Likely Explanation Was the Plane Was Shot Down By MISTAKE


We’ve previously documented civilian planes have accidentally been shot down by Ukraine, Russia, the U.S., Israel and China, and that the Malaysian plane may have accidentally been shot down over Russia.

The Associated Press confirms this possibility:

Senior U.S. intelligence officials say they have no evidence of direct Russian government involvement in the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17.
***
A senior official said the most likely explanation was the plane was shot down by mistake.
http://rinf.com/alt-news/breaking-news/senior-u-s-intelligence-officials-russia-directly-involved-likely-explanation-plane-shot-mistake/

There is no way the Russians or rebels would have deliberately shot down the aircraft. The initial accusations in the western media, and from various politicians, were obvious political attempts at vilifying Russia.

The other question that remains is whether Kiev forces shot down the plane deliberately or as an accident - as opposed to the rebels being responsible.

Evidence to Frame Russia For MH17 Shoot Down Fabricated


Evidence presented by Ukraine to implicate Russia in the shoot down of the Malaysian Airlines plane appears to have been fabricated.



Further confirmatory analysis of the faked audio tape is important in determining what happened. It seems like that this evidence is a hoax, which raises the question of premeditation and false flags.

Iraq's Hell on Earth, IDF Soldiers Against Occupation & World Protests Against Israel


Abby Martin reports on the thousands of activists across world cities protesting the continued Israeli aggression in Gaza, highlighting demonstrators in Paris being met with gas and rubber bullets after a French ban on pro-Palestinian demonstrations. Abby then reports on the more than 5,500 civilians killed in the first 6 months of 2014, and speaks with journalist and author, Dahr Jamail about his recent article breaking down the events that have taken place since the US withdrawal that have led to Iraq becoming a near failed state. Abby then speaks with Suha Najjar, a resident of Gaza City, discussing the horrors of daily life on the ground in Gaza since the Israel's latest offensive and debunks the 'human shield' rhetoric often heard from the IDF when justifying indiscriminate killings of civilians. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with Avner Gvaryahu, a member of 'Breaking the Silence' an organization made up of veteran Israeli soldiers that seeks to educate people on the counterproductive effects of the continued Israeli occupation of Palestine.



The attack on Gaza was facilitated by the Israeli Government using known murders, that they pretended was a kidnap case, to crack down on Hamas (that denied involvement) and elicit an armed response.

The fighting in Gaza was set-up to happen.

BUILDING PROFESSIONALS CAUGHT OFF GUARD ON WTC 7 (They had never heard about it)


This incredible reality — that the majority of our nation's architects and engineers are oblivious to WTC 7—is one of the primary reasons that AE911Truth headed to the Windy City last month for the 2014 National Convention of the American Institute of Architects. It was the fifth time since 2008 that our non-profit organization has attended this annual event, which this year was held at Chicago's McCormick Place on South Lake Shore Drive, the largest convention center in North America. The nearly 800 exhibitors and more than 15,000 architects in attendance had an opportunity to hear AE911Truth sound a wake-up call about the impossible claims of the official story of collapse by fire of the three skyscrapers on 9/11/01.

AE-group-smOur volunteers are so passionate about educating the architectural world that that they came from as far away as the UK and from as many as a dozen states in the US to help out in our booth at the Chicago convention.During the three-day convention (June 26-28), Richard Gage, AIA, and his team of volunteers staffed a 10' x 10' evidence-packed booth, where attendees dropped by to learn the compelling facts which demonstrate that the Twin Towers and a third, new-to-them building were all destroyed by explosive controlled demolition.

Ebola Outbreak Continues to Spread


Something deadly is creeping across African borders, undetected.

Since February, an Ebola outbreak has spread from the remote southeast of Guinea across the fluid boundaries of West Africa into Sierra Leone and Liberia. 85 new cases were reported in the second week of July alone, helping to push the death toll to just over 600, and increasing pressure on the global health community to bring the epidemic under control.

But it’s not so easy. The early symptoms of Ebola are hardly unique and therefore they are difficult to detect. The most common signs are fever, vomiting, bleeding and diarrhea. As the infection progresses, individuals experience internal bleeding, an inability to clot blood, organ failure, and a shutdown of their immune system.

Ebola isn’t airborne, and it can’t survive for very long on surfaces, but it is highly transmissible through contact with blood or bodily fluids. Once infected, up to 90% of victims die (in the case of the current Ebola outbreak, this rate is around 56%).

The first Ebola outbreak occurred in the 1970s, and it claimed 280 lives. As of mid-June, the death toll of the current outbreak was 350, and it has since almost doubled to 603.

So how does the largest and most deadly Ebola outbreak to date get brought under control? Bart Janssens, director of operations for the medical group in Brussels, says this outbreak is particularly challenging because of the mobility of the infected populations and their proximity to major hubs like the capital cities of Guinea and Libera. The disease can spread more easily than ever with so many outbreak locations and the ease at which individuals can move across borders. Because the virus has a latent period of 21 days, by the time symptoms appear and become contagious many individuals have already crossed a border and brought the virus to another location.
http://www.geopoliticalmonitor.com/ebola-outbreak-continues-spread-west-africa/

The Ebola outbreak is just as important as the conflicts we see in Ukraine or the Middle East. The lack of action here, in closing borders, is troubling. It's likely that nothing will happen until we have a mass casuality situation. The biggest problem is the long incubation period for the virus which is 21 days.

Whistleblower: Ukrainian Troops Shot Down MH17(?)


Award winning former Associated Press reporter Robert Parry has been told by an intelligence source that the United States is in possession of satellite imagery which shows that Ukrainian troops were responsible for the shoot down of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17.



As good an assessment as any at this moment in time. Other information to consider are Russian claims that MH17 was followed by a Ukrainian attack aircraft that may have been involved:

Ron Paul Defends Russia After Malaysian Plane Crash


Former Congressman Ron Paul defended the Russian government on Sunday and slammed Western leaders for spreading “propaganda” after a Malaysian Airlines plane was allegedly shot down by Kremlin-backed separatists in Ukraine.

“Western politicians and media joined together to gain the maximum propaganda value from the disaster. It had to be Russia; it had to be Putin, they said,” the former presidential candidate wrote. “While western media outlets rush to repeat government propaganda on the event, there are a few things they will not report.”

One of those unreported things, Paul claimed in his weekly “Texas Straight Talk” column, was the United States’ own responsibility for destabilizing the region. Ukraine is currently embroiled in violent conflict between the Ukrainian government and the pro-Russian separatists.

“They will not report that the crisis in Ukraine started late last year, when EU and US-supported protesters plotted the overthrow of the elected Ukrainian president, Viktor Yanukovych. Without US-sponsored ‘regime change,’ it is unlikely that hundreds would have been killed in the unrest that followed. Nor would the Malaysian Airlines crash have happened,” Paul wrote.

The U.S. government has said its intelligence suggests the plane was shot down by the separatists with weapons supplied by the Russian government. But Paul, echoing Russia’s own line of defence, insinuated the Ukrainian government is to blame.

Kiev’s Evidence of Militia’s Responsibility for Airliner Crash Faked - Expert


A tape posted by Ukrainian security services in the Internet and allegedly recording a talk between self-defense fighters about the destruction of a Malaysian airliner is a fake, experts said on Sunday.

A group of experts studied the tape and came to the conclusion that it was made up of numerous unrelated recordings.

“This audio recording is not an integral file and is made up of several fragments,” said Nikolai Popov, a reputable expert in sound and voice analysis.

Specifically, the first of the three audio fragments, in which Gorlovka self-defense militia commander Igor Bezler talks about a plane shot down by the fighters, does not say anything about the type of the plane, the expert said.

At the same time, the name of the town of Yenakiyevo is clearly heard in the tape. However, the town is located about 100 km (60 miles) from the settlement of Snezhnoye where the Malaysian Boeing-777 airliner crashed.

Bezler said the talk had really taken place but the he had talked about a Ukrainian attack aircraft shot down by the militia above Yenakiyevo a day before the Malaysian airliner crash.
http://en.itar-tass.com/russia/741521

If this analysis is correct the official story is almost certainly a lie, and the attack on MH17 a false flag event designed to vilify Russia.

We still need to see the analysis in detail to understand the claim being made here.

RT posted a story on the expert's findings:

Pepe Escobar Mocks John Kerry's 'It was Putin's Missile!'


And here's the spin war verdict: the current Malaysia Airlines tragedy - the second in four months - is "terrorism" perpetrated by "pro-Russian separatists", armed by Russia, and Vladimir Putin is the main culprit. End of story. Anyone who believes otherwise, shut up.

Why? Because the CIA said so. Because Hillary "We came, we saw, he died" Clinton said so. Because batshit crazy Samantha "R2P" Power said so - thundering at the UN, everything duly printed by the neo-con infested Washington Post. [1]

Because Anglo-American corporate media - from CNN to Fox (who tried to buy Time Warner, which owns CNN) - said so. Because the President of the United States (POTUS) said so. And mostly because Kiev had vociferously said so in the first place.

Right off the bat they were all lined up - the invariably hysterical reams of "experts" of the "US intelligence community" literally foaming at their palatial mouths at "evil" Russia and "evil" Putin; intel "experts" who could not identify a convoy of gleaming white Toyotas crossing the Iraqi desert to take Mosul. And yet they have already sentenced they don't need to look any further, instantly solving the MH17 riddle.

It doesn't matter that President Putin has stressed the MH17 tragedy must be investigated objectively. And "objectively" certainly does not mean that fictional "international community" notion construed by Washington - the usual congregation of pliable vassals/patsies.

And what about Carlos?


A simple search at reveals that MH17 was in fact diverted 200 kilometers north from the usual flight path taken by Malaysia Airlines in the previous days - and plunged right in the middle of a war zone. Why? What sort of communication MH17 received from Kiev air control tower?

Kiev has been mute about it. Yet the answer would be simple, had Kiev released the Air Traffic Control recording of the tower talking to flight MH17; Malaysia did it after flight MH370 disappeared forever.

It won't happen; SBU security confiscated it. So much for getting an undoctored explanation on why MH17 was off its path, and what the pilots saw and said before the explosion.

The Russian Defense Ministry, for its part, has confirmed that a Kiev-controlled Buk anti-aircraft missile battery was operational near the MH17's crash. Kiev has deployed several batteries of Buk surface-to-air missile systems with at least 27 launchers; these are all perfectly capable of bringing down jets flying at 33,000 ft
.
http://atimes.com/atimes/Central_Asia/CEN-01-190714.html

Make sure to read the entire article. There is no way the rebels would have deliberately targeted a civilian airliner, and a lot of reasons for the Kiev regime to do so in order to blame Russia.

With tensions inside the Ukrainian Government there will likely be leaks about what has happened. Certainly the confiscation of the air traffic control tapes should make one highly suspicious.

Pepe has also made the point - on his Facebook page - that there are no witnesses or photographs indicating a missile trail that should be obvious from the BUK. Below is a video demonstration of the missile system.  Notice the smoke trails:

MH17: Weathering the Propaganda Firestorm


The level of unsubstantiated propaganda being directed against Russia regarding the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 has reached unprecedented lows.

There is tangible desperation across Western media establishments, their political spheres, and within their corporate-financier funded policy think-tanks as they attempt to reassert their agenda and narrative not only upon the crisis in Ukraine, but upon the entire world as their weakening grip becomes apparent to all.

The dangerous desperation emanating from the West follows the latest in a series of growing failures - the previous and most comparable being the loss of its proxy war against Syria and the desperate criminal conspiracy they unleashed in a failed attempt to save it.
---------------------------------------

Headlines followed in the same politically motivated, factually disfigured manner as they did in regards to Syria:
The "game changer" indeed - just like NATO's false flag sarin gas attack in Damascus was supposed to be at a time Syria's government would benefit the least from it, and when NATO would have benefited the most. Again, absolutely no evidence is being provided for public scrutiny - the public is simply being told that it "exists," just as it "did" in Syria's case. The hysterical accusations being made by Western politicians and the media echoing them in editorial after editorial is behavior unbecoming of a global order that passes itself off as guided by the "rule of law," "democracy," "justice," or just plain human decency.

Stop with the Ridiculous Russia Bashing and Get your Facts Straight - Letter to Christine Milne, Leader of the Australian Greens Party


The following letter was sent to the leader of the Australian Greens party in response to her views appearing in this link. I also heard her speak in a similar fashion on radio. I just hope someone is paying attention here.

EMAIL:

As an online News Blogger, and researcher, I know that your views on Russia's involvement in Ukraine, and with the Malaysian Airlines shootdown, are unfounded. The term factually incorrect comes to mind.

Your erroneous views are most likely due to the advice you have been given. Your advisers obviously have no clue.

 Firstly, your view that Russia is to blame for what is happening in Ukraine, with your comment about reacting to their 'going into Crimea', grossly distorts what actually happened.

The facts are that the corrupt pro-Russian Government in Kiev was overthrown by a US sponsored coup that included anti-Russian fascists, oligarchs, and actual neo-Nazi types (you can view videos of them), and that subsequently the semi-autonomous region of Crimea VOTED to separate itself from the newly installed regime. This is what is called 'self determination' in places like Kosovo, where it suits western interests.

The reasons for Crimea, and other regions of Ukraine, separating from the Kiev Government are abundantly clear - it is the presence of the anti-Russian fascists who are on record as wanting to rid Ukraine of the Russian speaking people in the East. This was one of the first calls coming from the Kiev Government - to ban the Russian language - and although soon retracted, was taken to heart in the East and South of the country. The multitude of other threats and strong arm tactics against those that opposed the coup, plus the right wing massacre of the anti-Kiev protesters in Odessa, led to a strong determination to resist their control.

I would not blame the Government of Russia for aiding the rebels in their fight against Kiev considering the circumstances. The various proposals at negotiating a peace, that would have included elections that would have removed the largely unpopular neo-Nazis, and other fascists installed in Government positions, were scuttled. Having Poroshenko as the head of the Kiev regime did not change anything.

And as for the MH 17 shootdown itself, you have stepped way out of line, along with our no good Prime Minister, in admonishing the reactions of the Russians.

It is because of the war, and efforts to vilify resistance to the Kiev Government, that the Russians, plus the rebels in Ukraine, will not outright accept any claims made by their present enemies. In fact we should be extremely cautious about ANY claims being made by all sides regarding this issue, and mindful that our western side lied shamelessly during the Crimean separation claiming that the Russians had 40,000 troops and tanks on the border whereas an NBC News crew travelling the area at the time found no signs of a military build up. The Russians pointed out that the NATO pictures of troops and tanks were from an exercise that occurred the year before.

The problem you face here is that there WILL be false information put out about what happened. The Russians and Ukrainian rebels could easily be the victims of such a ploy (that includes fake radio communications and imagery) rather than the perpetrators. This scenario would explain their present reactions to the accusations levelled against them.

You cannot simply assume that Russia or the rebels are at fault for the shootdown of MH17. IF they are at fault then the shootdown would have been accidental - just as the US shootdown of the Iranian airliner in 1988 was accidental. You have already wrongly assumed that the Russian Government had the leading role in causing the break up of Ukraine whereas it was the nature of the coup in Kiev that facilitated the rise of the resistance/self-determination movement.

If you have research staff that can type into a Google Search engine you will be able to VERIFY everything I have mentioned here. I'll include one link below that gives you a small window into what happened regarding the Kiev coup and how the actions of those fighting against the Government are REACTIONARY. ie They are not the true instigators of the trouble:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWkfpGCAAuw&list=UUEHsSWvrGVSIA63OV3J6vhA

You should also consider watching this video that includes raw footage that clearly shows what happened in the Odessa Massacre:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4dJRnI-X8Q&list=UUEHsSWvrGVSIA63OV3J6vhA  

As a News Blogger I always check the facts when it comes to situations like these. You and your advisers should start doing the same.

ps. I was very very unhappy to hear what you had said about the Ukraine Crisis - hence the tone of this response.  Please take what I have said here very seriously. People are being killed, once again, for no good reason. If there were more people challenging the western corporate/government media discourse, things would be different.

Ukraine Caught Trying to 'Frame Russia' for Shooting Down Malaysia Flight MH17?




Apparently the digital time stamp on the video 'proving the rebels' shot down MH17 occurred BEFORE the shootdown.

And ... Bombshell! Proof That Malaysia Flight MH17 Was Diverted Over Ukraine War Zone!




And ... Ukrainian Army with Surface to Air missiles near Donetsk on July 5th (see 0:50)



And ...

Militias do not have Ukrainian Buk missile system — Ukraine general prosecutor
 
Militias in the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics do not have Ukrainian air defense missile systems Buk and S-300 at their disposal, Ukrainian Prosecutor-General Vitaly Yarema told Ukrainian Pravda newspaper on Friday.
 
“After the passenger airliner was downed, the military reported to the president that terrorists do not have our air defense missile systems Buk and S-300,” the general prosecutor said. “These weapons were not seized,” he added.
 
Ukrainian Interior Minister Anton Gerashchenko said on July 17 that the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 airliner had been downed by an air defense missile system Buk.

I'm starting to have doubts about the official story. Nevertheless there is the audio of alleged rebels talking about their involvement in the shootdown and there is a video that shows a BUK missile system being transported on a truck allegedly moving into Russia:

Malaysia Airlines MH17 Shootdown - Background to the Ukraine War that Led to the Tragic Incident


Although it appears the Ukrainian rebels accidentally shot down the Malaysian aircraft there's been a lot of (renewed) Russia bashing subsequent to the event. For the record, the resistance in Eastern Ukraine, and Crimea (initially), came about because of a western backed coup in Kiev that installed anti-Russian fascists, oligarchs, plus neo-Nazis, that replaced the corrupt pro Russian Gov. The neo-Nazi stuff is FACTUAL. You can see pictures and video showing their backgrounds.

One must remember that after Crimea voted itself independent, Eastern Ukraine tried to do the same, which led to the present war. The rebels won't lay down their weapons BECAUSE of the hostile Government in Kiev.


The following clip contains important information to help understand the entire situation. It explains why the Russian speaking rebels 1. declared independence, and took over regional gov buildings, and 2. why they are resisting attempts by the Ukraine military to kick them out:



The US and its allies, via the mainstream media, always blame Russia for their involvement in the conflict, but they forget to talk about the coup in Kiev and their hand in it.

Furthermore, the fears of the eastern Ukrainians are well founded. This is what happened with that massacre in Odessa, which was outright murder, and not simply an out-of-control building fire:



At the time of writing the rebels seem like the most likely source for the missile, with alleged intercepted communications admitting responsibility, although some details raise questions about this initial account.
