This Might Be A Good Time To Kick Russia In The Ass

We are keeping tabs on the shootdown of the Malaysia airliner. The US has already asserted that the shootdown occurred from territory held by Ukrainian rebels. Russia has reportedly tried to suggest that the Ukrainian government launched the missile.

I’m pretty sure that we have had all sorts of intelligence assets watching what is going on over there. I know that there is a tendency to keep intelligence information classified.

But I wonder if it would make sense to release the actual intelligence we’ve gathered that allow us to make the statements about where the missile was launched from, and any related stuff.

And then issue a statement saying Putin is full of crap. This situation does not look bad, it is bad. Heaping direct abuse on the rebels and on their Russian supporters might help de-escalate the situation.
