Long road to justice for relatives of MH17 victims

The preliminary report of an investigation into the crash of Malaysia Airlines flight 17 falls well short of bringing closure to those mourning the deaths of the 298 people on board. It found the Boeing 777 aircraft was likely penetrated from the outside by multiple "high energy objects" before breaking up in flight over war-torn eastern Ukraine, which is consistent with a missile strike.

Malaysia Airline: The official bearer of bad news?

Malaysia Airline flight, MH198, from Kuala Lumpur to Hyderabad had to dump fuel shortly after takeoff and circled back before landing in Malaysia at an airport north of the Kuala Lumpur Airport. The reason for the emergency landing is yet to be determined, but the recent events from the disappearance of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH 370 and the shooting down of the Malaysia Airline flight MH17 raises serious questions as to why is there a sudden mishap-prone legacy attached to the well established people carrier? The MH 370 just vanished as if we had primitive aviation tools with no trace of the plane or passengers found till date.

Making the news fit the politics: NY Times Finds Conclusions Where...

The New York Times , which has been misreporting on, and misleading its readers about the downing of Malaysian Flight 17 since the plane was downed last July 17, continues its sorry track record of flogging anti-Russian sentiment in the US and of supporting the post-putsch Ukrainian government in Kiev. This time America's leading "newspaper of record" is distorting the preliminary report of the Dutch Safety Board which has been leading an investigation into the cause of the Flight 17 crash that killed all 283 passengers and 15 crew members of a Boeing 777 aircraft flying from Amsterdam to Malaysia.
