So the trial brought before the Dutch courts by the Dutch led Joint Investigation Team, ostensibly set up to find and bring to justice those responsible for the downing of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 in July 2014 begins today.
We will see just how impartial the Dutch court system may be in determining the validity of the crock o’ shit evidence (my opinion) to be presented by the JIT lawyers.
This has not been an investigation of the truth. Far from it. The JIT was itself set up to declare a pre-conceived case. A case with a result determined before it even began its sordid work of selectively manipulating such available ‘evidence’ as it could find that would vaguely support the desired outcome – and ignoring all other evidence.
This report by TASS on the work of an independent group of journalists interested in seeing the truth come out of this trial makes very interesting reading. We shall have to wait and see how things turn out. I am expecting the court to rule there is no case to answer, based on that evidence.
I still maintain, whatever the result of the trial may be, that MH17 was brought down not by a SAM – from any source – but by military aircraft action. And there was only one air force operating over Ukraine at that time.
