An obscure group duped Senator Inhofe’s office. The delegation’s U.S. leader says it was a “misunderstanding.

”WASHINGTON — A delegation consisting of Ukrainian members of parliament, a paramilitary leader, and one Georgetown professor gave a senator's office photos purportedly of the Russian military invading Ukraine that were later debunked.

Several photos allegedly showing the Russian military in eastern Ukraine that ran on the Washington Free Beacon on Tuesday were quickly shown to actually be photos from other conflicts, some from years earlier.

Those Ukranians are as big a liars as the Russians ... but considering they were all part of the same country at one time .., they all had a lot of practice doing it before!

Geron, if you have the link to & proof that Russian satellite photos you refer to were “obviously fakes,” I’d appreciate it.

just a quick Google search finds:

IndyChannel: http://www.theindychannel.com/newsy/russian-mh17-satellite-photo-debunked-by-internet-sleuths

BBC: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-30064374

Moscow Times: http://www.themoscowtimes.com/news/article/russian-tv-channel-s-proof-ukraine-downed-mh17-courts-controversy/511219.html

and as the stories note, those who debunked it first were Russians on Twitter.

quote from the IndyChannel story: “Russian web users were the first ones to start poking holes in the image, noting it actually popped up in a forum one month before Channel One’s “scoop.” Observers also noted other discrepancies with the image — the plane’s flight trajectory was off, the fighter jet silhouette didn’t match Ukraine’s military planes, and the airliner’s logo was misplaced.”

Here is the pic everyone thinks they used to manufacture the fake satellite picture

and the “Ukrainian” plane supposedly firing a missile.... doesn’t match any aircraft owned by Ukraine.
