WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said on Thursday it appeared that the downing of a Malaysian airliner near the Ukraine-Russia border was not an accident and that the passenger jet apparently was "blown out of the sky."

"This is truly a grave situation," Biden said in a speech in Detroit.

He said he had seen reports that Americans may have been on board and that "we're now working every minute to try to confirm those reports as I speak."

Biden said the downing of the jet was tragic. He spoke by phone to Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko.

Strongest language yet from anyone in Obama's administration.

Biden's more coherent than the President who's busy attending two fundraisers tonight.

Man.

Seems to be kind of dumb to fly a plane over a war zone where two planes were shot down in a week. Are Malyasians that stupid? And were Americans really on board? Most crashes take months and years to investigate. My, this was quick!

I haven’t heard any American family members of the dead 23 speaking out yet.

The jet wasn’t headed for Guam, you know. A 777 landing there might have very well tipped the island completely over.

You could see how he was moving his head back and forth to read the teleprompter. How long has it been since a President or Vice could look straight into the camera and talk with the American people? Stay tuned for more from him as Barry is once again on vacation.

I agree. a tragedy is an airplane “accident”. I want to hear them call it terrorism.

A tragedy is when a flock of geese fly into your Rolls Royces.
The insurers and airlines are going to inflict some serious damage when they have to bite all the damages because some ‘general’ missed his real target. If i were the airline I wouldn.t release the passenger manifest until i had a clear culprit in the shootdown.

Other airlines were doing so to. Look at routes between Northern Europe and say Singapore. And Malaysia Airlines has been cash-strapped since they lost that other flight, and saving thousands of gallons on jet fuel on a twice a day run made sense at the time.

But hindsight is something that only happens after events, not before.

Though I’d have to say that after today those flights will stop!

Well at least ole Joe knew it was a terrible tragedy. He forgot to clue Barry in about it.

With all the talk of impeachment going around the Democrats are dragging Joe out of the closet, and pushing him up to the front of the stage to deter us from such a move.

this video is from the Nashville event on Friday.
He was so strange and awful that mist of the Governors walked out during his speech .
Odd how Barry Dem media failed to report that fact.

Like the time that Woodrow Wilson went on TV to reassure the public after General Burkhalter ordered the Titanic blown out of the sky, which led to the first world overseas contingency operation.
