The pile of official lies about what is really happening in Ukraine stacked up by the Obama administration and the State Department have already firmly established that this latest regime absolutely cannot be trusted to tell the truth and this is especially so when it comes to the disastrous foreign policy of the warfare state. What grows ever more apparent is that the Obama gangsters, in particular the warmongers over at the State Department are engaged in a serious cover-up over what really happened in regards to Malaysian Airlines MH17 that was shot down over Ukraine two weeks ago. The initial rush to pin the blame on reviled Obama nemesis Vladimir Putin sans any actual proof of Russian involvement was the greatest propaganda explosion that the world has seen since George W. Bush and Dick Cheney were "fixing the facts around the policy" in order to attack and invade Iraq under false pretenses back in 2003. From the minute that I heard the news that the plane went down I knew that it would be used by Obama and his asinine embarrassment of a Secretary of State John "Skull and Bones" Kerry to trump up more of a case for their lunatic outburst of aggression at Putin and I was not disappointed.
It seemed as though the narrative had already been established while MH17 was still falling from the air with the blame already being flushed throughout the electronic sewer system of the western media that it was indeed "Putin's Missile" that was responsible for the deaths of 298 civilians onboard the ill-fated flight. Media hysteria stoked world outrage in reckless rush to judgment in which it just seemed like the US leadership knew something that nobody else did - such as who was really behind it.We have seen this movie before with a lying, corrupt administration with the whoppers that were floated late last summer making a similar case for war when they were itching to bomb Damascus over that mysterious sarin gas attack on those civilians in Ghouta.
To this day the culprits behind that sad incident remains unknown with the best bet being that it was a false flag event perpetrated by the Islamist extremists that the US and our partners the Saudis were funding (including cannibals) in order to justify a full scale war. A war that was preempted when Kerry had an outburst of his chronic diarrhea of the mouth and left an opening for Putin to sweep in to save the day by practicing the diplomacy that Uncle Scam can't be bothered with. This, along with the saving of former government contractor turned NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden from a lifetime stay at a US torture facility were both humiliating blows to the egos of the petulant narcissist Obama and as we now are being dragged into what could be World War III based on nothing but bullshit and distortion and the spreading of hate and fear by the pocket media it stuck in their craws.
Probably my first thought about MH17 was - what in the hell was it doing flying over a war zone? After all, the anti-fascist, anti-austerity federalist fighters in the primarily Russian speaking east had shot down a number of Kiev junta planes already so why would a civilian airliner embark upon such an obviously risky flight path? There are stories that it was diverted and that the US backed coup regime in Kiev had been sending military planes to strike civilian areas hiding behind commercial aircraft for cover and then breaking off. I believed that the shootdown was highly likely the result of one of those battlefield accidents that so often occur during the fog of war. Or was it something much darker?
By Friday afternoon when I went to lunch at a local sports pub every television in the place (well over twenty of varying sizes) was broadcasting footage of the smoking ruins of MH17 and the search for bodies - it was all similar if not exactly the same feed although the TVs were all tuned to different networks. The propaganda effect of those early hours was nothing short of devastating, it reminded me of that looped CNN exclusive footage of the gas victims at Ghouta last summer that was shown over and over and over again to prep Americans for war. It was Saddam's soldiers pulling Kuwaiti babies out of incubators, it was the Tonkin Gulf Incident and the USS Maine and the Lusitania and the American war machine was revving up anew. John Kerry was a whirling dervish of bullshit appearing on all five major Sunday morning network "news" shows, hitting for the cycle for the first time since pushing the lies to justify the aborted war on Syria. Kerry touted indisputable proof that it was Putin who was behind it all, just as he did with Bashar al Assad yet the US government had nothing to offer up as actual evidence, no satellite imagery or smoking gun intercepted conversations from our global surveillance grid, only conjecture, hearsay and unconfirmed social media clips that were later proved to be doctored.
By the Monday after MH17 went down, the story was already falling apart despite Kerry's latest indisputable proof and the admission came out that "Senior U.S. intelligence officials say they have no evidence of direct Russian government involvement in the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17" and that the plane was likely shot down as the result of a "mistake". However the continued provocation of Russia and Putin will continue as the corrupt state-corporate media is now selling the line that Russia "created the conditions" for the shootdown. But didn't the original coup d'etat run by Kerry's Assistant Secretary of State Victoria "f*ck the EU" Nuland (which obviously had to be signed off on by Obama) create "the conditions" by backing the overthrow of the democratically elected president of Ukraine in favor of an rancid assortment of US backed lickspittles the likes of former central banker Arseniy "Yats" Yatsenyuk and full-blown fascists and neo-Nazis, many of whom revered the former Nazi collaborator and mass murderer Stepan Bandera? Were it not for the coup there would have been no eastern rebellion to put down and more importantly no war zone for MH17 to be flying over in the first place.
To paraphrase Apocalypse Now's Captain Willard "the bullshit piles up so high in this place that you need wings to stay above it" and after State Department flacks Jen Psaki and the bumbling Marie Harf continued to provide nothing but the same lack of proof and "trust us" references to social media there were suddenly satellite images released showing Russian rocket fire into Ukraine. The question now is that if US satellites were able to pick up these images (which conjure up Saddam's mobile chemical weapons labs) then WHY are there no satellite images available of the direction of the missile that shot down MH17?
Yesterday, the group Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) Posed the same question among others in an open letter to President Barack Obama. I excerpt from the letter at length which contains the questions that you can damned sure bet will never be asked by the corrupt state-corporate media that is covering Obama's ass on his latest pack of lies to start a war:
Russian tensions are building in a precarious way over Ukraine, and we are far from certain that your advisers fully appreciate the danger of escalation. The New York Times and other media outlets are treating sensitive issues in dispute as flat-fact, taking their cue from U.S. government sources.
Twelve days after the shoot-down of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17, your administration still has issued no coordinated intelligence assessment summarizing what evidence exists to determine who was responsible -- much less to convincingly support repeated claims that the plane was downed by a Russian-supplied missile in the hands of Ukrainian separatists.
Your administration has not provided any satellite imagery showing that the separatists had such weaponry, and there are several other "dogs that have not barked." Washington's credibility, and your own, will continue to erode, should you be unwilling -- or unable -- to present more tangible evidence behind administration claims.
It seems that whenever Kerry does cite supposed "evidence" that can be checked -- like the forged anti-Semitic fliers distributed in eastern Ukraine or the photos of alleged Russian special forces soldiers who allegedly slipped into Ukraine -- the "proof" goes "poof" as Kerry once said in a different context. Still, these misrepresentations seem small peccadillos compared with bigger whoppers like the claim Kerry made on August 30, 2013, no fewer than 35 times, that "we know" the government of Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical incidents near Damascus nine days before.
On September 3, 2013 -- following your decision to call off the attack on Syria in order to await Congressional authorization -- Kerry was still pushing for an attack in testimony before a thoroughly sympathetic Senate Foreign Affairs Committee. On the following day Kerry drew highly unusual personal criticism from President Putin, who said: "He is lying, and he knows he is lying. It is sad."
