Since Dutch intelligence is part of the NATO intelligence apparatus, this report means that NATO and presumably U.S. intelligence share the same viewpoint. Thus, the Russians would have little reason to fake their satellite photos showing Ukrainian anti-aircraft missile batteries in eastern Ukraine if the West's satellite photos were showing the same thing.
But there is a reason why the Times and other major mainstream publications have ignored this official Dutch government document -- because if it's correct, then it means that the only people who could have shot down MH-17 belong to the Ukrainian military. That would turn upside-down the desired propaganda narrative blaming the Russians.
Yet, that blackout of the Dutch report means that the Times and other Western outlets have abandoned their journalistic responsibilities to present all relevant evidence on an issue of grave importance -- bringing to justice the killers of 298 innocent people. Rather than "all the news that's fit to print," the Times is stacking the case by leaving out evidence that goes in the "wrong direction."
Of course, there may be some explanation for how both NATO and Russian intelligence could come to the same "mistaken" conclusion that only the Ukrainian military could have shot down MH-17, but the Times and the rest of the Western mainstream media can't ethically just pretend the evidence doesn't exist.
Unless, of course, your real purpose is to disseminate propaganda, not produce journalism. Then, I suppose the behavior of the Times, other MSM publications and, yes, Bellingcat makes a lot of sense.
