Fox News contributor Allen West has posted incendiary, America-hating comments in response to the horror of Malaysian jetliner, MH17, shot down over Ukraine. Rather than focus on who actually did it and why, West honed in on partisanship and politics by using the tragedy to exploit his extreme animosity toward our president. Sadly, I'll bet that West will be on Fox news offering his "take" on the subject within 24 hours. Assuming he has not already done so.
West's inflammatory hate mongering began right in the title of his blogpost: "298 souls on MH17 have paid the price for Obama’s 'flexibility.'"
The blood on Vladimir Putin’s hands was poured by Barack Obama who is indirectly responsible, accountable and no different than Neville Chamberlain’s weakness in the face of the 20th Century maniacal dictator Adolf Hitler.
So much for no drama Obama. He is purposefully creating drama globally.
As Business Insider notes, West's only "evidence" for such an accusation is minuscule:
To substantiate his claim, West cited Obama's 2012 hot mic moment when he told Russian President Dmitri Medvedev he would have more "flexibility" to negotiate with Russia on missile defense after the U.S. election.
Gee, somehow, he forgot to mention Benghazi!

Now, another one (Allen West) is saying he’s “indirectly responsible.”
These wingnut talking heads are so eager to blame the President, they can’t even get their spin straight on whether he’s indirectly or fully responsible . . .
The only person who has shown themselves to be even less informed than Allen West jumping on this wagon is Rush Limbaugh. And yes- I am including Alex Jones, ann Coulter, Matt Drudge, Newsbusters, everyone who’s already been on Fox News, and the ever delightfully slanderous Breitbart.
