KAL Investigator: 'We Know' Russia Involved in Plane Crash

Fox News Military Analyst and retired US Air Force Lt. Col. Thomas McInerney, who was one of the early investigators into the crash of Korean Airlines Flight 007 in 1983, stated that Russia was clearly involved in the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 in an interview on Saturday’s “Justice with Judge Jeanine.” “We know exactly what happened or 99.99% of what happened” McInerney said. 

“We know it was an SA-11, it was a Russian missile, we know that it was probably integrated with the Russian Integrated Air Defense Sector and so the search radar was probably being provided from Russia, and we have all this information, it’s just that we have not yet released it” he reported, adding that perpetrators did not intend to shoot down a civilian aircraft. He further claimed that there was more information in the transcripts of pro-Russian separatists discussing the flight being shot down than has been released to the public, and that it was “probably Russian Spetsnaz troops that fired [the missile] because it is too sophisticated for an ordinary separatist to know how to do it.”
