    I only got half way through the comments, pretty sad. This is a good time also and instead of follow the money we need to follow who benefits the most.

      False flag seems like a pretty strong label. True, as Maddow said, Ukrainian intelligence is the source of a lot of the derogatory information circulating on the Internet. But it’s difficult for me to believe that the Ukrainian military would deliberately bring down a jet hoping to blame the rebels. There’s a long reach between altering the time stamp to mislead people about the intentions of the rebels and actually planning to do it. There are other ways to get a wrong time stamp, such as if the clock on the computer that made it is off.

      I do think it would be nice if some journalist would run to ground the role of Ukrainian intelligence in generating disinformation.

  2. To me, it looks to have been a huge mistake of the sort that is not unheard of in war zones. See also: USS Vincennes.
