Below is the latest addition to my long time post MH17 and Ukraine – A Continuing Study, begun in August 2014. If your curiosity is aroused by what you read below, you can find it and much, much more, by scrolling far down the 2014 post to the top of its lengthy “Chronological Notes” section.
September 26: Here is an excellent report by RT’s Nadira Tudor on the Russians’ presentation of raw radar data from July 17, 2014, discovered by Almaz-Antey, today to the supposedly Dutch-led JIT, who will bring out yet another suspiciously plodding report this week. The raw data allegedly proves that, if a Buk missile did bring down MH17, it could not have come from rebel-held territory. The Russians challenge the US and Ukraine to come up with the evidence that those two countries are obviously withholding that would cover attacks from the North or the West. To my understanding, the Almaz-Antey report, as described by all sources I’ve seen, does NOT eliminate the possibility of Ukraine jets being involved either alone (i.e. no Buk) or to clean up a disabled but flyable MH17 wounded by a “botched Buk” fired by Ukrainian-troops or a rogue Ukrainian paramilitary group. On-board witnesses that might describe events that would implicate a Ukrainian-fired Buk or fighter jet(s) would be an embarrassment worth committing mass-murder to conceal. The Alma-Antey information seems limited to proving that no Buk left rebel-held territory. So, folks, you can once again ignore the latest malignant BS coming from Bellingcat.com, a paid neocon obfuscation website run by Elliott Higgins. Higgins has been proved wrong on Syria and, of course, wrong also on MH17.
The RT interviewer talked with the distinguished British aircraft expert, Julian Bray, who explained why, for real reasons of military secrecy, a nation might not want to reveal part of its jig-saw puzzle (raw radar data, for example) for fear that the data could be reverse-engineered by an adversary to determine what that nation (in this case, Russia) has “on the ground, in the air and into outer space.”
Mr. Bray (of Lockerbie investigation fame) also said near the end:
I take my hats (sic) off to the Russians for what they’ve done so far and hope the other people (US and Ukraine) will bring their information to the table.
Russia’s delay in “finding” the above-mentioned raw data, given the above comments from Bray, may show how desperate a military risk they are prepared to take to eliminate the economic and political bashing to which they are being subjected by the US and its patsy, NATO.
In view of the enormous loss of face and world-class shame that the US and the Ukraine would face if what a growing number of people regard as the real facts behind this shoot-down were to become known, I’m not holding my breath. I’ve been watching the tragic MH17 show for over two years, now…
