President Obama Dictates What Happened In Ukraine And Whose Fault It Is - Live Feed

Tyler Durden's picture


President Obama was a little cagey early yesterday in finger-pointing or assigning blame... but later in the day, he was clear that Putin and Russia were responsible. This morning we are told that the US "believes" it was pro-Russian separatists "maybe." We await President Obama's statement (and hopefully Q&A) this morning as he explains the situation in Ukraine... and how he won't stand for it any longer. Despite Russia signing energy and investment deals with numerous nations around the world and being at the hub of the creation of the BRICS Bank, we are sure President Obama will dictate how isolated Russia is becoming (despite Europe's "fold" on further sanctions for fear of retaliation).


The President is due to speak at 1130ET...

The Ukraine Air Traffic Control was in complete charge of Malaysia flight MH17.

They had them fly a route directly through the war zone and out of the way than their normal flight and they had them fly lower than they requested.

Had a dead rabbit in the cellar. Should I be worried?

In the meantime "our words are failing to match the reality on the ground." So we find ourselves agreeing with what is happening...even when we are "dictating" phantom acts.

Usually pretty innocuous...but if there is a shot at Kiev...are we forced to change our pronouncements so we can reflect the fact that we have no responsibility in any matter whatsoever?

We are employing a sanctions regime. Yet we are not changing facts on the ground. Now new facts are being made (Gaza)...yet those have no sanction?

Certainly seems a lot more expensive (in human terms) than Russia taking Crimea.

Maybe there is simply an inability to grasp reality here..something beyond failing to act.

Hard to tell. There have been many stories of a Commander in Chief who really doesn't care all that much about the job and "thinks it's stupid."

Valerie Jarrett (Sitting in the den of the Obama’s Hamptons vacation home.) – Mr. President could you quit putting on the carpet for a minute and focus?

Obama (Glancing up with a look of scorn.) – Why are you always so serious Valerie? Relax… we’re on vacation.

Jarrett – But Mr. President I think we need to address a few issues.

Obama – Like what? (He tries to give a putt some body English.)

Jarrett – Well let’s see… there is the plane the Russians just blew from the sky, Israel is moving into Gaza, the border crisis, Obama care is collapsing, Issa and Goudy are closing the noose on the IRS scandal, Benghazi, the VA is a disaster….

Obama (Interrupting) – Okay… okay… I get it, the shit is piling up. What do you recommend?

Jarrett – We need to either solve at least one of the issues, or at very least change the subject.

Obama (With a puzzled look.) – Solve?  What is that?

Jarrett – Yeah it might be easier to just change the subject.

Obama (Looks up from his putting to admire himself in a mirror.) – I got it! Can you rent those columns we used back in 2008 in Denver? We could set them up on the beach and I’ll do a speech.

Jarrett – I think this may require more than a speech.


Obama (Exasperated) – Okay… okay… I’ll do two speeches.

If this were a case to be tried in a court of law, WordSmith, we would just be beginning the discovery portion: facts are coming in, lies are coming in, and now at least one head of state (Obama) is attempting to galvanize world opinion without providing any evidence.

These facts in your report bear consideration:

"The aircraft flying at the altitude of more than 10 thousand meters might be hit only with weapons like S-300 or Buk. The militias don’t have such weapons, and cannot afford them as it was acknowledged even by the Ukrainian Defense minister Valery Galetey in a statement on another issue two days before the Flight MH-17 tragedy:

“…a “powerful weapon” must have been used to down the plane flying at 6,500 meters, an altitude the shoulder-fired missiles used by the separatists can’t reach.”

"The Russian military expert Igor Korotchenko argues that the catastrophe in Donetsk was most likely caused by the incompetence and non-professionalism of the Ukrainian operators of the Buk systems during its testing after the battery was deployed in the new location. He said that the Ukrainian antiaircraft unit did not have any kind of proper training for the last 23 years since the collapse of Soviet Union..."

Obama offers the "services" of the NTSB.

Well, after the bang-up job they did with TWA 800, he might as well have said "we can help Kiev come up with any scenario they please!"

Video clip doing the rounds showing the BUK minus 2 missiles being transported back(?) into Russia on a truck. Gee, I wonder why? The most simplest explanations are usually the most accurate. Trigger happy numpties without proper training, but with the right equipment, blow up the wrong plane by accident. Russia and friends in full damage control mode. Can't blame them, I'd do the same. I'm sure Putin is fuming and wants some heads to roll.
