    Robert, in the absence of any ‘contact us’ button that I can find, I’m leaving you a note here and hope you’ll come to read it. First, I am forever indebted to you and your co-authors for your excellent, in-depth, analysis of today’s (and yesterday’s) events. It would be difficult to fully assess what I read elsewhere without your articles to provide an alternative view.

    My reason for writing, though, is to suggest that an article comprehensively addressing the so-called ‘proofs’ of Russian aggression in Ukraine (including the MH-17 shoot-down) by qualified intelligence & ex-military photo analysts (which your ex-CIA cohorts like Ray McGovern & Paul Pillar should have access to) add significantly to the ‘Russia did it’ conversation.

    As you no doubt know the NYT published an article ‘demonstrating’ that the airliner was downed by a SAM (based on metal ‘skin’ punctures – http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2014/07/21/world/europe/wreckage-offers-clues-on-why-flight-17-went-down.html?emc=edit_th_20140722&nl=todaysheadlines&nlid=36832884), and a German pilot published an item stating, based on skin punctures around the cockpit, that it was downed by 30 mm cannon-fire such as from Ukrainian AF SU-25’s (http://www.globalresearch.ca/german-pilot-speaks-out-shocking-analysis-of-the-shooting-down-of-malaysian-mh17/5394111) an event which I know you’re aware was also presented by the Russians at their press conference. Additional items such as ‘Russian’ military hardware videos presented as evidence of invasion which apparently only demonstrate equipment mutual to both the Ukrainian & Russian military, commercially obtained sat photos, etc. The list goes on.

    Many of these items have been either discussed or alluded to in several of your articles, abut I think compiling the all into one or two definitive discussions would be very informative.

    Please keep up your (all’s) excellent work,
