Is Putin Responsible For MH17? Five Questions For Investigators On Russian Culpability

by Paul R. Gregoryvia Forbes.com
Friday, July 25, 2014

The Kremlin churning out MH17 conspiracy theories reminds me of a shyster lawyer defending a guilty murderer by deliberately planting seeds of doubt in the minds of jurors.

California Senator Barbara Feinstein has demanded that Vladimir Putin “man up” and admit that pro-Russian separatists downed MH17, mistaking it for a Ukrainian transport plane. That this is true is obvious to all except Putin’s propaganda machine that is frantically churning out absurd conspiracy theories, while Putin lies low and limits himself to vague claims of Ukrainian guilt.
