UK Media’s Scurrilous MH17 Reporting

An open email to the following sent 10/8/2016:                                                                      Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, The Times, The Independent, The NewStatesman, The Economist, The Spectator, BBC Newswatch, BBC Newsnight, Channel 4 News, Financial Times, Time Magazine, Newsweek, Der Spiegel, Private Eye, The Week, Washington Post, New York Times, Izvestia, New Internationalist,  Associated Press

“How quietly the second anniversary of the MH17 crash has passed, and yet over the past eighteen months the Dutch investigating authorities have published two documents vitally important to an understanding of that tragedy which should have been of interest.

On 8/4/2015 the General Intelligence and Security Service of the Netherlands (AIVD) and the Dutch Military Intelligence and Security Service (MIVD) published an English edition of its Review Report Arising from the Crash of Flight MH17.*

On 19/4/2016 in a letter** headed Criminal Investigation MH17 the coordinator of the Dutch JIT wrote to the relatives of those killed in the tragedy.

Both documents (links below) come from sources of unimpeachable integrity and competence and yet despite the major importance of their contents neither appears to have come to the attention of the mainstream media. There certainly seems to have been no significant coverage.

In brief the two documents state:

That there is no evidence to indicate that the Russian Separatists possessed an operational, powerful anti-aircraft system such as a BUK system, prior to the crash of flight MH17.

That only the Ukrainian (Kiev) armed forces possessed operational BUK systems of which a number were located in the east.

That there is no evidence indicating that the Russians supplied the Separatists with BUK systems, nor was there any evidence to indicate that they were being trained to use such systems.

That the Ukrainian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Klimkin stated that the separatists did not possess BUK type systems.

That there is no evidence to indicate that the Separatists had the capacity to hit civil aeroplanes at cruising altitude.

That General Breedlove (SACEUR) stated 30 June 2014 that the Americans had not yet observed any vehicle-borne air defence systems being transported across the border to Ukraine.

That there is no video footage available of the launch or trajectory of the missile.

That in arriving at the above conclusions the DISS have had access to U.S. state secret data generated by their own security forces.

That five billion web pages and more than half a million images and audio were examined in the course of the investigation in which Cyber specialists of the JIT played an important role.

Of the amateur investigation collective Bellingcat whose views receive so much media attention the document states:   
                                                                                                          That many of the sources which Bellingcat relies on were known to the JIT, and that in addition, the research team has more and other information on this subject, which is not mentioned by Bellingcat.   
                                                                                                                That insofar as Bellingcat has offered new sources they are examined and assessed.          Of the Bellingcat draft report of 26/12/2015 to the JIT the document notes that the report has been gathered using social media and other public Internet sources, including information about members of a Russian military unit with, according to Bellingcat, a possible BUK-missile system in Ukraine, but that no evidence of direct involvement of individual members of the unit at the shooting of MH17 follows from the Bellingcat report.

Or to put all of the above more succinctly:

The Netherlands’ Military Intelligence and Security Service (MIVD) have concluded that the only anti-aircraft weapons in eastern Ukraine capable of bringing down MH-17 at 33,000 feet belonged to the Ukrainian government, not the ethnic Russian rebels. 

In view of the immense interest shown by the public in this tragedy and by way of endorsing the reputation of the British Media for balanced, impartial and dispassionate reporting you will I am sure wish to publish the truth as it is now seen by the Dutch investigating authorities in as prominent a way as the banner headlines and blanket coverage given to the false accusations, ill-informed speculation and unproven allegations that were carried throughout the media in the immediate aftermath of the tragedy.

Perhaps  Newsnight’s expert Sir Anthony Russell “Tony” Brenton KCMG might return to offer a corrective to the extraordinary and outrageous ‘expert’ views he expressed on the programme within eight hours of the crash which have proved to be wrong in so many respects that I forbear to list them, but would willingly do so if required.##

For information, the following communication was sent today to:                                       Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, The Times, The Independent, The NewStatesman, The Economist, The Spectator, BBC Newswatch, BBC Newsnight, Channel 4 News, Financial Times, Time Magazine, Newsweek, Der Spiegel, Private Eye, The Week, Washington Post, New York Times, Izvestia, New Internationalist,                                                                                   My thanks to Matt Lee for his excellent contributions at the White House briefings.#

The above sent to all major UK media outlets and selected foreign outlets.”
