US hiding truth about MH17 crash?

The United States government knows a lot more than it’s letting on about Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 and is likely hiding the truth, according to former US presidential candidate Ron Paul.

In an Aug. 7 post on his website Voices of Liberty, Paul said the US, with all its intelligence-gathering capabilities, should have a clear idea of what happened on July 17 when MH17 was shot down over Ukraine, killing all 298 people on board, according to the Huffington Post.

Much of that information has likely been withheld from the public, the former Texas lawmaker was quoted as saying.

“The little that we have heard from US intelligence is that it has no evidence that Russia was involved. Yet the war propaganda were successful in convincing the American public that it was all Russia’s fault,”  he said.

“It’s hard to believe that the US, with all of its spy satellites available for monitoring everything in Ukraine that precise proof of who did what and when is not available.”

The Obama administration has said that pro-Russian separatists who have been trained and equipped by Moscow likely shot down MH17.

Russia has denied involvement in the attack and has blamed the Ukrainian government for downing the plane.
