The politics of the Russian Passanger Plane crash in Sinai

THE RECENT CRASH OF A RUSSIAN METROJET IN ROUTE FROM SHARM EL-SHEIKH TO ST. PETERSBURG WHICH KILLED ALL 224 ABOARD IN UNDER INVESTIGATION BY RUSSIAN AND EGYPTIAN OFFICIALS AND TO SOME DEGREE BY BRITAIN AND THE UNITED STATES.  TOP OFFICIALS IN BOTH THE U.S. AND BRITAIN ARE CONVINCED THAT THE RUSSIAN PLANE WAS BROUGHT DOWN BY A BOMB PLACED ON-BOARD BY A TERRORIST GROUP, WITH ISIS BEING THE PRIMARY SUSPECT.  HOWEVER AT THIS TIME BOTH THE RUSSIANS AND EGYPTIANS ARE NOT CALLING THIS A TERRORIST ACT.  OF COURSE EGYPT IS HIGHLY DEPENDENT ON IT'S TOURIST INDUSTRY  AND RUSSIA IS RELUCTANT TO ADMIT THAT ISIS IS THE CULPRIT BECAUSE THEN THEY WOULD HAVE TO DIVERT MUCH OF THEIR MILITARY ACTIVITY IN SYRIA FROM ATTACKING FORCES FIGHTING AGAINST PRESIDENT ASSAD TO ATTACKING ISIS POSITIONS IN THE NORTH OF THAT WAR-TORN NATION.  IN THIS CASE THE TRUTH MUST TAKE A BACK SEAT TO THE STATES POLITICAL EXPEDIENCY AND NOT TO THE TRUTH FOR THE FAMILIES OF THE 224 DEAD RUSSIANS.  KIND OF REMINDS ONE OF THE BENGHAZI ATTACK DOESN'T IT.
