Only if known at the time, but hey apparently that only counts for Iran. ;)


You ever thought the injuries were not known at the time as in to anyone? That's what apparent means which you seem to have missed. But hey orange guy and America bad.
We dont know in either case do we ?

Or maybe it's a simple case of the intel not existing at the time? Ever thought about the most likely scenario?
This most likely played a role in Orangutanman not being informed, leaving him to sprout his usual untruths.


A new book by Washington Post reporters sheds new light on Trump’s incredible temper tantrum at his top military brass, who he also called “losers.”

But in the case of Iran your first thought was they may not have known rather than jump to the conclusion they lied. Sweet.

Your bias is sure playing a role as well.

When you try shutdown a VM but you're still ssh'd on the node


Jokes aside, RIP to the people on the plane. That really sucks.

My first thought is that the truth of any situation normally needs time to come out , even when nobody lies.

A leaked recording shows Iran knew from the start it had shot down a passenger jet, Ukraine says

Iranian officials knew it shot down a passenger jet and lied about it for days, Ukraine said Sunday, citing a leaked audio recording of an Iranian pilot communicating with air traffic control in Tehran.

In the leaked audio recording - said to be from the night Ukraine International Airlines flight 752 was shot down - a pilot for Iran Aseman Airlines radioed the air traffic control tower to tell them he saw the "light of a missile," Reuters reports. The control tower can reportedly be heard trying, unsuccessfully, to reach the Ukrainian passenger aircraft on the radio as the Iranian pilot says he saw "an explosion." Aseman Flight 3768 was close enough to the airport in Tehran to see the blast, the Associated Press reported, citing publicly-available flight-tracking data.

Iran to Stop Coordinating With Ukraine After Air Traffic Recordings Leaked

Tehran said Monday that it would stop sharing information with Kyiv about the downing of a Ukrainian jetliner last month, after a Ukrainian TV channel released leaked recordings from Iranian air traffic control. The recordings, which aired on Ukraine's 1+1 Sunday evening, are of a conversation between two air traffic controllers speaking in Farsi about "the light of a missile" on the plane's route. Iran denied for days after the plane crash that the jetliner was brought down by one of its missiles.
