Think Tanks Rush to Solve Malaysia Airlines Tragedy

If there is a current event in the news, the odds are very good that a think tank somewhere in Washington (or elsewhere) is commenting on it.

Here is what some think tanks are saying about the apparent shootdown of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17.
  • Brookings analysis from Steven Pifer and Hannah Thoburn.
  • AEI's Michael Auslin says that freedom of the skies is at risk.
  • AEI's Michael Rubin considering the implications of the plane crash.
  • AEI's Leon Aron asks if the crash will be traced to a Russian-made missile.
  • Heritage Foundation asks if Russia's aggression contributed to the Malaysian plane crash.
  • CSIS's Anthony Cordesman says avoid rushing to judgement.
  • Carnegie Europe's Judy Dempsey on the tragedy in Ukraine.
  • Atlantic Council's Alex Ward: Is the MH17 crash a turning point in the Ukraine crisis?

Here is a previous Think Tank Watch post on think tank analysis of the missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370.
