The Guardian has interviewed a confused “commander” in the east who has no direct knowledge whatsoever of what went on, and tries to turn it into an admission of guilt.
“That Buk I know about. I heard about it. I think they sent it back. Because I found out about it at exactly the moment that I found out that this tragedy had taken place. They probably sent it back in order to remove proof of its presence,” Khodakovsky told Reuters.
He heard the same news story put out by the Ukrainian government, the fraudulent audio “intercept” that was sent everywhere. He’s relaying the news story without any first hand knowledge that a rebel-controlled BUK ever existed, or was “sent back,” to Russia which was the Kiev government fraud, exposed by its sloppy video evidence.
So this interview subject, Alexander Khodakovsky, a “commander” has no first hand knowledge that any BUK system even existed prior to the Malaysian incident. Odd? No?
Nor any knowledge that it was ever sent “back” anywhere. He’s clearly speculating. He has no knowledge that it ever existed at all, and is only relaying stories he’s heard, though where he heard them from is of no concern to the Guardian.
The Guardian then goes one better–
” This week the Guardian also spoke to witnesses who said they saw a missile-launching system that looked like a Buk drive through Torez, near the crash site, last Thursday, a few hours before the plane was downed.”
Really? No Names. Nothing to corroborate this story. No idea of the sympathies of those who are allegedly making these claims, but since it fits in with the ‘blame Russia’ bias of the rag, let’s throw that in too.
This is the standard of evidence for deciding matters of war and peace?
PS: The Spy Satellite that Didn’t Bark
There’s an easy rebuttal to the Guardian’s Torez claims from unnamed so-called witnesses: the spy satellite photos. Where are they? Why is the US hiding them?
If the US had pictures of these large lumbering vehicles, as claimed, they would be on the front page of every newspaper in the west. The propaganda is shown by what they won’t show as well as what they do claim.
