Malaysian newspaper says MH17 shot down by Ukrainian government fighter jets
Aug 13, 2014
The Malaysian government has been doing its own investigation into the downing of flight MH17. The Strait Times newspaper in Kuala Lumpur is largely a reflection of the views of the government, so last week when the newspaper accused the Ukrainian government of shooting down MH17 with the support of the US, UK, and Germany, we should sit up and take notice.
Even if the western media ignores their report.
After all, Malaysia was one of the victims of this shoot-down.
KUALA LUMPUR: INTELLIGENCE analysts in the United States had already concluded that Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down by an air-to-air missile, and that the Ukrainian government had had something to do with it.
This corroborates an emerging theory postulated by local investigators that the Boeing 777-200 was crippled by an air-to-air missile and finished off with cannon fire from a fighter that had been shadowing it as it plummeted to earth.
In a damning report dated Aug 3, headlined “Flight 17 Shoot-Down Scenario Shifts”, Associated Press reporter Robert Parry said “some US intelligence sources had concluded that the rebels and Russia were likely not at fault and that it appears Ukrainian government forces were to blame”....
Yesterday, the New Straits Times quoted experts who had said that photographs of the blast fragmentation patterns on the fuselage of the airliner showed two distinct shapes — the shredding pattern associated with a warhead packed with “flechettes”, and the more uniform, round-type penetration holes consistent with that of cannon rounds....
Retired Lufthansa pilot Peter Haisenko had also weighed in on the new shootdown theory with Parry and pointed to the entry and exit holes centred around the cockpit....
He deduced that in order to have some of those holes fraying inwardly, and the others fraying outwardly, there had to have been a second fighter firing into the cockpit from the airliner’s starboard side. This is critical, as no surface-fired missile (or shrapnel) hitting the airliner could possibly punch holes into the cockpit from both sides of the plane.
It is easy to see why the Western media would ignore this report. Most newspapers, including that of the US and the UK, are heavily controlled by the government, in spite of their protests to the contrary. Press passes to White House news briefings are given only as a government privilege and will be withdrawn if the media steps says something the government does not like. It is a form of blackmail, as all White House reporters know.
