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

Despite the War Drums, There Is No Evidence that Putin Shot Down the Malaysian Airplane Over Ukraine

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.

Indeed, the Russian government claims Ukrainian fighter jets were flying very close to Malaysian Flight 17.  While some believe this proves that the Ukrainians shot down the passenger plane, another theory has surfaced:  that Ukrainian fighter jets were escorting the Malaysian plane through Ukrainian airspace.   If so, whoever shot down the plane might have thought it was a military craft.

In any event – despite the war hawks’ rush to judgment and false leads – no one really knows what happened yet.

    Ok, let’s just say for discussion, that the militias really have BUK missiles and that they really shot down MH17 by accident. Here’s how it might have gone down (BTW, I still think the Kiev military shot it down, until we get more clarity on this). The Ukes know that the militias have a BUK system up and running…..they know what the commercial airline flight plan schedule is. They know that the militias are itchin for more SAM takedowns of their military aircraft…..the Ukes pick out Flight MH17 and have it diverted north, out of the more safe corridor. They tell the pilot that they will “escort” them through the conflict zone (which does happen). MH17 is now directed to descend from 35K to 33K (Why?)….They get to the designated area and an SU-25 Frogfoot is now ascending rapidly toward the airliner. The militia fire control team sees the SU-25 and they try and get a lock on it…..they launch….at the last moment, the SU-25 deploys countermeasures and the SA-11 now acquires the airliner… this time the SU-27s “escorting” the airliner have backed off…..BAM!, the missile takes out the airliner and the false flag is not quite so false with the militias now furnishing the self-incriminating evidence of having fired the missile. Can this be done? What are the countermeasure capabilities of an SU-25 and how easy is it to confuse an SA-11 in the terminal closing phase of a target lock? Too far fetched? Food for thought.

      Where can I read reports of all these details you are giving us?

    I’m a little unclear as to why anybody thinks it makes a difference if it was by mistake or deliberate.. intent follows the bullet. It was clearly intentional to shoot down a plane.. they just hit the wrong one, and not because the missed the right one, at best you can say the misidentified the target but hit the target they were deliberately shooting at.

    The US has failed to win its outright BS propaganda war on Putin/Russia. Putin moved quietly while the west acted like deranged Baboons(no malice to the Baboons intended) calling for Strong Action against Russia??? The US & Ukraine have a history of shooting down civilian airliners: USS Vincennes-IR 655 290 civilians killed, TWA-800 downed by unknown US Naval vessel(200 witnesses & Expert testimony), 9/11 according to Pilots for 9/11Truth(911 Pilots Intercepted: ) & the 2,200 Qualified experts of AE911 (New Pearl Harbor: 1-3. 911 Solved: . Hard 911: 911 War by Deception: 911; 01 version of Northwoods: 9/11 Explosives AE9/11: ) 9/11 was a US False Flag Operation most likely using RC lookalike planes (see 9/11 Intercepted for all details).

    Russia is a target because Russia & China (with the BRICS) are setting up a development bank which threatens the USD, US Fed, BIS & the whole fkn PNAC/Zionist/Corrupt/Psychopathic agenda for a US Hegemonic(Rule) One World Military (PNAC 8min:
    & PNAC 3hr Doc: ).

    The US is out to first isolate Russia through installing a Facist & Neo-Nazi Regime in Ukraine to create instability & oportunities for False Flag Ops. If successful it will then do the same to China & break up BRICS (Stockwell CIA Secret Wars: CIA covert ops since WW2: CIA, Op Paperclip & Nazis: The CIA Controls Al Qaeda: Secrets of the CIA: Dirty Wars 2013:

      Why are you posting these 9/11 conspiracy, etc. videos? Have I blundered into a hotbed of propaganda that treats Islamic terrorists as the innocent victims of Israeli-American conspiracies?

  • Bobby__Fisher

    The Ukrainian prosecutor general admitted that the rebels have no missiles capable of shooting that high. The images of a Buk missiles towed , that the western propaganda tried to insinuate were those of the rebel’s missiles, were debunked by local citizens in Ukraine who’ve identified the locality the images were takes in and it happened to be 50 kilometers away from the shooting area and in the territory controlled by the Kyiv regime’s troops.

  • peter

    well thanks for reporting this….
    there is going to be credible information coming as soon as the UK open the blackboxes

    • ClownBozo

      Did you just used credible information and UK in one sentence?

  • mark mc

    Reality Check: Just wish remind everyone that the black boxes are not going to reveal who or what shot it down.

      no, but it could very easily give factual details thqat could point in the right direction of truth. for example, it could clarify if there actually was a ukranian fighter jet flying next to the jet (something ukraine/west has been reluctant to admit). if that came out, then people are going to ask why it wasnt mentioned, or confirmed when allegations were made. it would give clearer insight into what was actually happening the moments before the plane went down(i believe that is what they dont want us to see)
      why are they hiding the blackboxes contents from the public??? they want to blame this on pro-russian seperatists to further theire agenda, wouldnt the truth help them?
      the malaysian flight that went missing had there black bnox contents released within 72 hours of it going missing, why should this be treated any different? its been what, over a week now?
      the only reason for not releasing it within a timely manner is because they are hiding somethign from the public.

      • pnyikos

        Has the black box even been found? If so, where can I read about this?
