Editor’s Note: Why would Putin admit fault? We’ve already shown him that the extent of U.S. opposition to him will only go as far as UN sanctions.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein on Sunday urged Russian President Vladimir Putin to “man up” about the circumstances surrounding the downing of a Malaysian airliner in Ukraine.
“This has become a huge human drama, and I think the nexus between Russia and the separatists has been established very clearly, so the issue is where is Putin?” the California Democrat said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I would say, ‘Putin, you have to man up. You should talk to the world. You should say, if this is a mistake, which I hope it was, say it.'”
Feinstein, who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee, spoke to CNN’s Candy Crowley shortly after Secretary of State John Kerry said in a separate interview that it has become “pretty clear” that separatists and Russians were both involved in some part of the shootdown of the airliner that killed all 298 people aboard.
