Rebels Hand Over Black Boxes, Russia Says: ‘CIA Did It!’

First we have this from Reuters:

Bodies, black boxes handed over from Ukraine crash site

By Anton Zverev and Peter Graff | July 22, 2014

DONETSK Ukraine (Reuters) – A train carrying the remains of many of the nearly 300 victims of the Malaysia Airlines plane downed over Ukraine arrived in Ukrainian government territory on Tuesday as a separatist leader handed over the plane’s black boxes to Malaysian experts. The train carrying around 200 body bags arrived in the eastern city of Kharkiv, which is in Ukrainian government hands. The bodies will then be taken back to the Netherlands to be identified.

The train left the crash site after the Malaysian prime minister agreed with the separatists for recovered bodies to be handed over to authorities in the Netherlands, where two thirds of the victims came from…

We wonder how much the ‘separatists’ were paid.

"Here they are, the black boxes," Borodai told journalists at the headquarters of his self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic as an armed rebel placed the boxes on a desk. Colonel Mohamed Sakri of the Malaysian National Security Council said the two black boxes were "in good condition". …

So the Ukrainian separatists aren’t as brazen about destroying evidence as our IRS is.

Russian Media on Downed Airliner: The CIA Did It

July 21, 2014

If perception is reality, then the Russian population would assume that the downing of Malaysia Airlines MH17 was the work of the Ukrainians — with the help of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, or vice versa. Just one day after the horrific tragedy that left 298 people dead, Russia’s Channel One ran a package telling its audience that the entire incident was orchestrated by the United States, specifically by the CIA. A document was broadcast purportedly showing that the U.S. was planning to do the same thing during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis.

Viewers learned that the "U.S. orchestrated this because Ukrainian government is not sophisticated enough to orchestrate this," according to the broadcast, which was translated from the original Russian by CNBC. According to Channel One, Russia’s swift economic growth has inspired the United States to try to damage Russia’s economy.

It must be great when the news media acts as you propaganda outlet. (And yet Obama still complains.)

The government of Russian President Vladimir Putin financially supports and editorially controls a domestic media machine that has become reminiscent of the Soviet propaganda machine, and the former KGB agent has shut down most independent news channels that may stray from the Kremlin line.

It’s kind of ironic that NBC is so critical, given how they have become Obama’s version of Russia Today.

  1. Cui Bono?

    I assure you from the depths of my soul Putin did not shoot down MH17.

    I assure you from the depths of my soul that the White House did.
