In this detailed video, Monetary Reformer, one-time Libertarian Presidential candidate, and heavily pro-American (as he explains in the first minute) Bill Still admits he was "probably wrong" about his initial assessment that it was the Russians who shot down MH17 over the Ukraine. He shows photographic evidence of 30MM cannon fire, which could only have come from an attack plane like the kind the Ukraine is using, having struck the fuselage. The 4-mile debris field supports the theory that the cockpit was the intended target and that it was literally severed from the rest of the plane before crashing to the ground, 4 miles before the rest of the still-winged craft cashed later.

The Dutch are hewing and hawing, using carefully crafted language to avoid what is becoming clear to any unbiased reporter, like Still.
Still concludes with the possibility that the Ukrainian forces may have been trying to down a very similar looking plane carrying Russian President Putin, traveling in the area at the same time, and shot down the wrong plane by mistake.

Our own Intelligence officers are refusing to rubber stamp the Administration's false claims of Russian involvement. Perhaps they have learned their lesson, finally, from the WMDs that were never in Iraq? Perhaps they just got tired of lying? In any case, these are the cracks that start rebellions against a thoroughly corrupt government, one that has already started a new Cold War, but, unlike the last one, this is not a war that will be fought in proxy states like Vietnam, it is one that is being waged in Russia's back yard and former state. Would we tolerate a Russian takeover of our territory in Puerto Rico? The Ukraine has more history as part of Russia than Puerto Rico has as part of the U.S. (Puerto Rico was never a U.S. state).

Tonight, Obama will go on television to make the case for ever more war, a series of wars "against terrorism" (are you less terrorized yet?) that started in 9/11/01, and which shows no sign of ever ending, except by cataclysm.

This, at a time when even Ukraine president Poroshenko admits most Russian forces are out of the Ukraine (while not admitting that maybe they were never there to begin with). Perhaps Obama is hedging his bets; if one war won't happen, maybe another one will do. His best supporter in a divided Congress may be none other than Dick Cheney, who just visited the Republicans there, to urge them to get back in the fight. Wouldn't it be ironic if the Nobel Peace Prize-winning president's warplans were derailed by Rand Paul Republicans?
