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:
Whoo! America's wang is one step closer to getting the gay loving it needs!
Thanks to a judge in the Key West, Florida's same sex ban has been overturned!
Monroe County Circuit Judge Luis Garcia ruled on Thursday that a gay couple must be allowed to wed, and will be issued licenses on Tuesday!
Aaron Huntsman and William Lee Jones, who have been together for over eleven years, sued for their right to a marriage license.
Judge Garcia's ruling flies in the face of Florida's 2008 Constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, but unfortunately it only affects Monroe County- in other words, the Florida Keys.
Well, we all know how "just the tip" ends! Get ready for the future, Florida!
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.

Was Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 shot down??
The jet crashed in an area where the Ukrainian military has been facing off with rebel forces.
Shockingly, there have been some early reports claiming that the plane was hit by a surface-to-air rocket.
Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko has responded to these rumors, denying that his military forces had anything to do with the tragedy. He said:
Is Hillary Clinton running in 2016? Come on! We HAVE to know! And we aren't the only ones!
When the former First Lady and Secretary of State stopped by The Daily Show on Tuesday, Jon Stewart grilled Hill skillfully for an answer!
But all his guile wasn't enough for this Clinton! She deftly evaded all his questions! Until it came to how to fix the country's problems that is!
Ch-ch-check out their entire HIGHlarious - if not a little bit revealing - interview…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
We LOVE Daniel Webb.
Who is Daniel, you may ask??!
The Texas man just so happened to be working the cash register at Franklin Barbecue in Austin when President Barack Obama made a surprise visit and the conversation he has with THE Commander In Chief was EPIC!
Here's how it all went down on Thursday:
When Obama was paying for his BBQ deliciousness, Daniel slammed his hand down on the counter and said:
"Equal rights for gay people!"
BOLD. Most people would stutter around the leader of one of the most powerful nations in the world, but wait, it gets better!
When Obama asked if Daniel was gay, he replied:
"Only when I have sex."
And the exchange ended with a fist pump and a giggle.
Like we said, EP-IC!!!!!
