Kerry: Ukraine rebels likely downed passenger jet

WASHINGTON (AP) - The United States is putting the likely blame for the downed Malaysian passenger plane on Ukraine separatists who had Russian military help.

Secretary of State John Kerry is citing a mix of U.S. intelligence and social media reports as evidence that he says "obviously points a very clear finger at the separatists."

Kerry says there's been a major flow of arms and weapons crossing the Russian border over the past month to help the Ukrainian rebels who are fighting to break away in the east from the central government.

Kerry says separatists have shot down about 12 aircraft over the last month, and bragged about Thursday's attack on the Malaysian plane until they realized it was a commercial jet.

Kerry appeared on five talk shows Sunday.

The wealthy Ketchup Consort Prince is hitting the talk shows to simply repeat things already known. Is this our Sec of State or a glorified news reader?

Kerry and obama know nothing as usual. obama just hates Putin and will talk against him any day. I believe Putin any day of the week instead of obama. We know Russia trained the Serparist. The US also trained ISIS, but we aren't being blamed for anything they do.

I heard the replay of radio transmissions of the weasels that fired the missile. It contained the Russian equivalent of "Oh sh*t" after discovering what they shot down.

it should be interesting as to where the blame will finally be placed-Kerry's track record is lacking so if he say it is the rebels it must be someone else. Time will tell

Terrorist bombings in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and dozens of other countries. A war going on between Israel & Hamas, and Russian backed separatist are shooting down civilian passenger planes in their war in the Ukraine as Russia's Putin seeks to retrieve lands once held by the old Soviet Union........WAIT, that can't be true, didn't Obama just tell us the world was more tranquil under his leadership ? What leadership Mr. Obama?

"Likely downed plane" It is not likeley,. They did down the plane with the help of Russians. None of these so called rebels would have the training to operate such a sophisticated weapon. It takes many months of training to run such a computerized system. So much for speculation. Call a spade a spade and stop beating around the bush. They are already hauling away the evidence what more do you need.
