Reader agrees with most or all of the Facts (Optional)

Analysis and Conclusion relative to theft:

Relative to determining the cause of the ‘accident’, investigation under ICAO agreement, or an investigation by a US Vice President team is a waste of time, except to fill in news media time with the illusion that ‘something is being done’. ‘Black Box’ readouts, on-scene wreckage, other forensic evidence, and autopsy/toxicology efforts are only necessary to eliminate long term speculation of 'what if this', or 'what if that' may have happened (see TWA-800 non-conclusive, non-investigative formal FBI/NTSB reports and background information). This MOT Ballot weighs the actions of news reporting (stealing media time and attention) away from the crash/accident and also away from government  policy, procedures, communication, and/or training that impact war operations, such as why the airliner was not warned, or was allowed into that war environment airspace in the first place.
