Obama: At Least One American Citizen Was Killed In Malaysia Airlines Crash

Obama: At Least One American Citizen Was Killed In Malaysia Airlines Crash

Quote:
. . .

"This was a global tragedy. An Asian airliner was destroyed in European skies, filled with citizens from many countries, so there has to be a credible international investigation into what happened," Obama said in a statement delivered from the White House Friday.

"Russia, pro-Russian separatists and Ukraine must adhere to an immediate cease-fire. Evidence must not be tampered with," Obama continued.

"Itís time for peace and security to be restored in Ukraine," Obama said.

. . .
The story goes on to say there is not one American who was on board. But I don't know if that's definitive or not.
Thanks from Camelot

I believe they have confirmed that one American with dual citizenship who was flying on his other passport was on the flight. They have not totally discounted the fact that more of the others not identified so far may fall into that category.

Not quite the 23 the haters jumped on for no reason whatsoever.

First reports mentioned the number may be as high as 20 but, was not substantiated.

The UK Daily Mail quoted that number saying it was in a Reuter's story on the crash.

It was as if some were hoping that the American tally would be substantial. ODS has created a life and rationale all it's own.
