Remember flight MH17? In Malaysia the PM this week accused the Netherlands of having filed to produce evidence for its claims in the report last year. Bellingcat happens to be a propaganda venue very much involved in the claims about who used chemical weapons in Syria. They just got a nice half million euros from the dutch for their public services. Its involvement is the thing that makes me wary of some of the report. Public claims of attribution depended on very disputable data they promoted. As for Mahathir , it has already been claimed that is is old and presumably " fond of conspiracy theories". It would be nice to see the "legal and convincing evidence that would stand up in a courtroom" really presented in a courtroom and analyzed. But these disputes between states seldom get to that stage. And even when they do, we've seen that past events remained contested (recalling Lockerbie).
