The RATS probably are already hitting up the trial lawyers for a piece of the settlement against Boeing and Malaysian airlines.
What!!!!! He is not blaming Bush!!!!!!!
‘Obama Blames Rebels Under Putin’s ‘Control’ for MH17 ‘Outrage of unspeakable proportions’ ‘
I am outraged about the Fed sponsored invasion of our own country, my sincere outrage trumps his phony outrage all day long.
Wish he had the good grace to shut the hell up.
Putin first found out about the plane being shot down when he read about it in the newspaper.
