Joe Biden Speaks Out As American Intelligence Confirms That Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 Was Shot Down
American intelligence has confirmed that the crash of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 in the Ukraine was not an accident.
Though it's still unclear who fired the missile that brought the commercial jet down, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen has promised a full international investigation.
Vice President Joe Biden issued some remarks as well, given the new information, before a speech to Netroots Nation. He said:
"[Flight MH17] apparently had been shot down- shot down, not an accident, blown out of the sky."
The Vice President also said American intelligence would continue to confirm the reports of lost American lives.
This is such a tragic event, it's difficult to even fathom the political ramifications of an attack of this nature.
All we can say for sure right now is that this may have turned much more serious.
