What a sad day!
While the world has been shocked at the Malaysian plane crash in Ukraine today, which was allegedly caused by a possible surface-to-air missile, we've also been eagerly awaiting the President's remarks.
Recently, President Obama commented briefly on the tragic plane crash and America's role in the ongoing response:
"Looks like it may be a terrible tragedy. Right now we're working to determine whether there were American citizens on board. That is our first priority."
In addition, President Obama mentioned that the U.S. would help getting to the bottom of this:
"The United States will offer any assistance we can to help determine what happened and why."
Meanwhile, Vladimir Putin reportedly talked with President Obama about the report received from air traffic controllers right before their conversation about the crash.
So sad! We'll see how this unfortunate story develops.
