Response to geek tragedy (Reply #23)

67. You seem to misunderstand what Reuters reported

"he's saying the rebels were in possession of the missiles"

He is nowhere saying that.


"that it was a well-known fact "

Not true. Please cite the passage you are refering to.


"he also pretty much admits that the rebels did shoot the plane down, and suggested that they sent the missiles back to russia to hide their guilt "

BS.

This is from the Reuters article:

Khodakovsky said his unit had never possessed BUKs, but they may have been used by rebels from other units. ...

"What resources our partners have, we cannot be entirely certain. Was there (a BUK)? Wasn’t there? If there was proof that there was, then there can be no question."

Khodakovsky said it was widely known that rebels had obtained BUKs from Ukrainian forces in the past, including three captured at a checkpoint in April and another captured near the airport in Donetsk. He said none of the BUKs captured from Ukrainian forces were operational.
