MSNBC lauded President Obama for his speech last Monday regarding Russia's role in downing Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, killing 298 people.
"Russia has extraordinary influence over these (Russian) separatists," the commander-in-chief said sternly. "No one denies that. Russia has urged them on. Russia has trained them. We know that Russia has armed them with military equipment and weapons, including anti-aircraft weapons. Key separatist leaders are Russian citizens."
Then he called on Putin to "cooperate with the investigation" and warned "Russia will only further isolate itself from the international community." Boy, that must have made Putin quake. Putin answered Obama's speech loud and clear on Wednesday, when Russian funded and managed "separatists" shot down two Ukrainian jets — a mere six days after Flight 17 was blown out of the sky and on the very day the first bodies were returned to the Netherlands.
President Obama's unremitting fund raising is targeted at the Democratic Party retaining control of the US Senate in November, because if they don't, it's all over for him. And the Russians, the Egyptians, the Israelis and everyone else knows it.
When there is a crisis, Obama calls for an investigation and then goes golfing or on vacation and that's the end of the investigation...and he will stay gone until there is a new crisis, after which he will golf and go on vacation following his call for an investigation.
Broken record - at every possible level.
