It didn’t take long after Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 crashed in the Ukraine for the conspiracy theories to begin surfacing. No, it didn’t take long at all.

A roundup of the early theories:

“I can say that Putin’s plane and the Malaysian Boeing intersected at the same point and the same echelon,” the source reportedly said on the condition of anonymity. “That was close to Warsaw on 330-m echelon at the height of 10,100 meters. The presidential jet was there at 16:21 Moscow time and the Malaysian aircraft—15:44 Moscow time.”

Actually it was MH370 that was finally brought down for humanitarian reasons.

I'll add an other crackpot theory.

The Malaysian flag looks similar to the American flag and who ever shot the missile was attempting a terrorist attack on an American airliner.

Just watched O’Reilly and he showed a clip from MSNBC. Latest conspiracy is that the plane was shot down from a blast of wind from Howard Stern’s as@

However, there is no way that, at 33,000 ft, the Malayan flag logo on the tail would be visible from the ground.

Will we ever know who did it?

Everything is being thrown against the kitchen wall - like spaghetti - and most likely on purpose.

Good point. How about this conspiracy theory.

Pussy Riot was on the manifest and the Patriarch of Moscow is responsible.
