McConnell notes evidence of Serco bait, switch and spoliation during a phony exercise synchronized with the London Underground bombing of 7/7/2005, and the phony Airports Council International (ACI) Conference on 9-12 September 2001 when over 2,000 high-level representatives of airports such as Borispol were baited to Montreal, Canada, well away from where “experts of unknown provenance” were apparently being mustered by Serco to overthrow the U.S. government.
Immediately after the shoot down, foreign people entered the control tower at Kiev Borispol Airport which was monitoring flight MH17 and removed the normal workers and started doing their jobs. These “replacements by force” were obviously put there to front the official story. The normal control tower staff then reported the presence of two fighter jet escorts via Twitter:
10:21 “Kiev Authorities, trying to make looks like an attack by pro-Russian”
10:24 “warning! It can be a downing, Malaysia Airlines B777 in ukraine, 280 passengers”
10:25 “Warning! Kiev have what they wanted”
10:25 “[Miitary] has taken control of ATC in Kiev”
10:27 “The Malaysia Airlines B777 plane disappeared from the radar, there was no communication of any anomaly, confirmed”
10:30 “Plane shot down, shot down, shot down, no accident”
10:31 “Kiev have what they wanted, I said in the first tw [Tweets], Kiev is responsible @ ActualidadRT”
10:35 “An accident that is not quite normal, they are threatening us in the same tower of Kiev airport”
10:35 “they will take from our phones and others stuff at any moment”
10:38 “Before They remove my phone or they break my head, shot down by Kiev”
11:12 “We have confirmation. Plane downed, Kiev authorities already have the information, downed, we are calm now”
11:13 “What are doing foreigners with kiev authorities in the tower? Gathering all the information”
11:15 “When possible I´ll keep writing”
11:48 The B777 plane flew escorted by Ukraine jet fighter until 2 minutes before disappearing from the radar,
11:54 “If kiev authorities want to tell the truth, It´s gathered, 2 jet fighters flew very close minutes before, wasn’t downed by a fighter”
12:00 “Malaysia Airlines B777 plane just disappeared and Kiev military authority informed us of the downing, How they knew?”
12:00 “7:00 minutes after [plane disappeared], the downing was notified, later our tower was taken with foreigner staff, they still here ”
12:01 “all this is gathered in radars, to the unbelieving, shot down by kiev, here we know it and military air traffic control also”
13:15 “Here the military commanders manage and support it could be military following other orders , but no, the pro-Russian”
13:29,.“Interior Minister knew what the fighters were doing in the area, the defense minister didn’t.”
13:31 “Military confirm It was Ukraine, but still does not know where the order came from”
13:36 “Days ago I said here, kiev military wanted to rise against the current president, this may be a way, ordered by timoshenko [following timishenko orders]”
13:38 “The fighters flew close to 777, up to 3 minutes before disappearing from the radar, just 3 minutes”
13:43 “Airspace closed”
13:45 “Airspace is closed, more downings feared”
15:17 “military control now officially [say] the plane was shot down by missile”
15:23“Government has the official report signed by the control military authorities in Kiev,,,, [plane] shot down”
15:26 “The report indicates where the missile had come out [from], and specified is not from the selfdefence in rebel areas”
15:34 “Military radar collected data from missile fired to the plane, civilian radars didn’t”
15:36 “military high command did not gave the order to fire the missile, someone screw it ine the name of ukraine”
15:38 “For those who do not know, Let’s say, there are military under the orders of the defense minister and military under the orders of Interior Minister”
15:38 “The military under the orders of Interior Minister knew what happened all the time .”
16:06 “Military commanders here (ATC) control tower, confirm that the missile is from the ukranian army,”
16:07 “military commanders that knew it and others didn´t ,”
16:08 “290 dead innocent people. What a useless war, where patriotism is bought with money”
16:09 “The way the control tower was taken minutes after & knowing all the details, made us think that they [made it]”
16:10 “The face of the soldiers who came later saying [what you just did], no chance for doubts”
16:12 “Such is the decline that military who came first accompanied by foreigners came to us asking us to tell their version”
16:13 “Our response was, these radars do not collect the launching of missiles, the military ones does, there were no doubts””
“MH17: Vladimir Putin is given ‘one last chance’ as world fury mounts over downed flight
Global leaders rounded on Vladimir Putin on Saturday night as armed separatists continued to block international inspectors attempting to identify and repatriate bodies at the Malaysia Airlines MH17 crash site in eastern Ukraine.
Amid reports that pro-Russia rebels accused of shooting down the plane had removed corpses themselves and were looting credit cards and other possessions belonging to some of the 298 victims, Mark Rutte, the Dutch prime minister, said that Putin had “one last chance to show he means to help
[rescuers recover the bodies]“.
Rutte vented his anger following what he called a “very intense” conversation with the Russian president. Referring to allegations that bodies of the passengers, including 193 Dutch nationals, were being treated with contempt and allowed to rot at the scene, he said: “I was shocked at the pictures of utterly disrespectful behaviour at this tragic spot. It’s revolting.”
David Cameron called for the EU and the west to change its approach to Russia if Putin does not alter course on Ukraine following the tragedy. The prime minister said: “This is a direct result of Russia destabilising a sovereign state, violating its territorial integrity, backing thuggish militias, and training and arming them. We must turn this moment of outrage into a moment of action.”
Following reports about attempts to use victims’ credit cards, Dutch banks said that they were taking “preventive measures” and that any losses suffered by relatives of the dead would be paid back.
TheDeTelegraaf newspaper said: “The government must make clear to the world that we are beside ourselves with rage.”
Speaking about the British government’s priorities Philip Hammond, the foreign secretary, said: “Our focus now is on securing the site so there is a proper international investigation to identify the cause and the perpetrators and bring them to justice, and making sure the victims are dealt with with proper dignity and respect.”
The US secretary of state, John Kerry, also stressed in a phone call with the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, that investigators must get full access to the crash site.
The situation there descended into chaos on Saturday as “experts” of unknown provenance moved bodies decomposing in the baking heat from fields to the roadside, and used bags to collect body parts. A spokesman for the OSCE, Michael Bociurkiw, said: “Some of the body bags are open and the damage to the corpses is very, very bad – it is very difficult to look at.”
It was a horrific scene and came despite huge pressure on Moscow to force the rebels to allow proper access to the site. The Ukrainian government accused the separatists of removing 38 bodies from the site to a morgue in rebel-held Donetsk. But as politicians and newspapers across the world lay blame for Thursday’s tragedy at the door of pro-Russia separatists and Vladimir Putin personally, the Kremlin has remained defiant. Putin has said Ukraine is to blame, and Russia’s defense ministry issued a list of 10 questions for Kievon Saturday, insinuating that it was a Ukrainian missile that downed the plane, while the self-declared prime minister of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Alexander Borodai, told Russian television that the entire event had been a setup by Ukrainian authorities.
“[Ukrainian president Petro] Poroshenko promised a ‘surprise’ for the rebels. I think this is the surprise he was talking about – a plane full of civilians shot down,” said Borodai. However, a senior Ukrainian security official claimed on Saturday that Kiev had evidence the missile was fired from separatist territory by Russian specialists who had crossed the border with the equipment.
The Ukrainian prime minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, told a German newspaper that the missile required “very professional staff” and “could not be operated by drunken gorillas”, suggesting that the separatists had outside help from Russia. When asked about the growing circumstantial evidence that the separatists shot down the jet in error, thinking it to be a Ukrainian air force plane, Borodai said: “It’s a lie and I hope it will be proved as a lie by experts, including international experts who have already arrived on our territory.”
However, there were no recognisable international or even Ukrainian experts at the crash site, which was completely controlled by rebel gunmen. Ukraine’s government on Saturdayaccused the rebels of destroying evidence and making life difficult for OSCE observers. “We have to be very careful with our movements because of all the security. We are unarmed civilians, so we are not in a position to argue with people with heavy arms,” said Bociurkiw.
Of the 10 dead Britons, the four yet to be identified were named on Saturday as John Allen, a Netherlands-based lawyer who died with his wife Sandra and their sons Christopher, Julian and Ian; Robert Ayley, 28, a dog breeder and father of two from Guildford in Surrey, who lived in New Zealand; Stephen Anderson, 44, who lived in Penang, Malaysia; and Andrew Hoare, 59, a banker who died alongside his Dutch wife Estella and their two children, Friso and Jasper, who were aged 12 and 14 and of Dutch nationality.
Russia’s ambassador to the UK, Alexander Yakovenko, has been summoned to the Foreign Office to be told that Putin must use his influence on the separatists to ensure access to the crash site, No 10 said. In Germany, Andreas Schockenhoff, a senior ally of chancellor Angela Merkel, told the Observer: “The disaster in the Ukraine has made it clear beyond all doubt that we are not dealing with a bilateral conflict, but a serious threat to the peace all across Europe.”
Schockenhoff said Russia was “not a neutral actor in the conflict” since it had armed and trained the separatists. He called on Europe to show “a united front and make any failure to cooperate very painful for Putin”.
Meanwhile, the Russian foreign ministry published a list of 12 US citizens who are now banned from entry to Russia in response to the latest US sanctions. They include officials involved in the running of the Guantánamo detention facility and military personnel involved with the Abu Ghraib prisoner abuse scandal.
Fighting has continued between the Ukrainian army and separatists in east Ukraine since the crash on Thursday, with more than 20 civilians reported to have died in Luhansk on Friday. Ukrainian authorities claimed they had evidence of military equipment transferred to the area from Russia in the early hours of Saturday morning.”
