Growing evidence suggests that Russia was responsible for shooting down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 in Ukrainian airspace, but the Russian media has an alternative theory. (6:08)

>> Jon: ALL RIGHT.

WELL, HERE WE GO THEN.

THE WORLD IS STILL REELING FROMTHE MYSTERIOUS MISSILE ATTACK

OVER EASTERN UKRAINE, WHICH LASTWEEK TOOK DOWN A CIVILIAN

MALAYSIA AIRLINES JET. THERE'S ALOT OF CONFUSION.

A LOT OF FINGER POINTING.WHAT DOES THE EVIDENCE SAY?

>> THREE SA-11 MISSILE BATTERIES

RECENTLY ENTERED UKRAINE FROMRUSSIA.

>> A MISSILE LAUNCH FROM AREBEL-HELD AREA WAS DETECTED BY

U.S. INTELLIGENCE.

>> REBEL LEADERS TALKING ABOUTHIDING THOSE BLACK BOXES ON

INSTRUCTIONS FROM MOSCOW.

>> Jon: SOURCES SAY FRAGMENTSOF THE MISSILE REEKED OF BORSCHT

AND REPORTS INDICATE THAT WITHINTHAT MISSILE THERE WERE SEVERAL

SUCCESSIVELY SMALLER NESTINGMISSILES.

[LAUGHTER]SEEMS LIKE A LOT OF EVIDENCE,

BUT IT'S ALL CIRCUMSTANTIAL.

ARE YOU GOING TO CONVICT ONCIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE?

>> ONE OF THE PRO-RUSSIANMILITANT LEADERS TWEETED PROUDLY

AT THE TIME THAT THIS PLANE WASFIRST SHOT DOWN THAT HIS FORCES

HAD TAKEN DOWN A UKRAINIANMILITARY TRANSPORT.

[LAUGHTER]>> Jon: OKAY.

THAT'S A LITTLE STRONGER.

SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE AND ACONFESSION POINT TO THE RUSSIAN

REBELS BEING SUPPLIED WITHTECHNOLOGY AND KNOW-HOW

BY MOSCOW. PERHAPS THERE ISANOTHER EQUALLY PLAUSIBLE ANGLE

THE WEST HAD NOT CONSIDERED.

ONE THAT'S GETTING MAINSTREAMAIRPLAY IN RUSSIA.

>> THEY SAY, "INSIDE WE'RE NOTLIVE PEOPLE BUT CORPSES.

THE PLANE WAS FLOWN NOT BY REALPILOTS.

IT WAS ON AUTOPILOT.

IN THE NECESSARY SPOT IT WASBLOWN UP WITHOUT EVEN USING A

SURFACE-TO-AIR MISSILE."

[AUDIENCE REACTS].

>> Jon: SO EITHER POORLYTRAINED RUSSIAN INSURGENTS

UTILIZING HIGH-LEVEL MILITARYTECH FROM RUSSIA MISTAKENLY BLEW

UP A PASSENGER PLANE.

OR... PERHAPS EQUALLY LIKELY,THE DUTCH, THE WORLD'S FLORISTS,

LOADED CORPSES ONTO A PLANE INAMSTERDAM AND DITCHED IT

DIRECTLY OVER THEREBEL-CONTROLLED AREA OF EASTERN

UKRAINE TO MAKE THEM LOOK BADFOR NO [BLEEPED] REASON

WHATSOEVER.[LAUGHTER]

THE COUNTRY THAT GAVE US THEWINDMILL, THE POT BROWNIE AND A

BED SHEET OVEN POWERED BYFARTS NOW GIVES US THE

UNPROVOKED FLYING ZOMBIE PLANE.

THAT IS SO LIKE THE DUTCH.

EVEN WIKIPEDIA HAS PRONOUNCEDTHE RUSSIAN REBELS GUILTY.

>> AN INTERNET USER WITHIN THERUSSIAN GOVERNMENT REPORTEDLY

REVISED A WIKIPEDIA ENTRY ABOUTMALAYSIA AIRLINES FLIGHT 17.

THE ORIGINAL ENTRY SAID THEPLANE WAS SHOT DOWN BY

TERRORISTS OF THESELF-PROCLAIMED DONETSK PEOPLE'S

REPUBLIC.

THE REVISED ENTRY WRITTEN LESSTHAN AN HOUR AFTER THE ORIGINAL

SAID THE PLANE WAS SHOT DOWN BYUKRAINIAN SOLDIERS.

>> Jon: GOD THE RUSSIANS AREGOOD. THE SAME WIKIPEDIA USER

WENT ON TO NOTE THAT EVEN IFRUSSIAN REBELS HAD SHOT,

TECHNICALLY GREEDO SHOT FIRST.[LAUGHTER]

REALLY. GOT A FEW "STAR WARS"NERDS OVER

TO THE RIGHT.

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]EVERYONE ELSE... SO DESPITE ALL

THE EVIDENCE, PUTIN SAYS ITWASN'T HIM. IT'S WHAT WE IN THE

JEW POLITICAL LITIGATIONBUSINESS KNOW AS "THE SHAGGY

DEFENSE."

♪ IT WASN'T ME ♪>> BUT WE SAW YOU MOVE THE

MISSILES. ♪ IT WASN'T ME ♪

>> Jon: BUT WE HEARD YOU TALKINGABOUT IT WITH THE REBELS.

♪ IT WASN'T ME ♪

>> Jon: WE SAW YOU KISSING ONTHE SOFA

♪ IT WASN'T ME ♪>> Jon: ALL RIGHT.

YOU WIN THIS ROUND.

PUTIN, DID THE LIPS MATCH THESONG?

I COULDN'T SEE IT.

YES!

[LAUGHTER]I ONLY...ALL RIGHT.

CLEARLY THE STAKES ARE HIGH.

WHOEVER SHOULDERS THE BLAME FORTHIS ATROCITY IS GOING TO BE THE

TARGET OF GLOBAL ANGER.

AND RIGHT NOW IT LOOKS LIKE IT'SRUSSIA'S FAULT BECAUSE IT'S

RUSSIA'S FAULT.

OF COURSE, THAT DOESN'T MEANRUSSIA'S GOING TO ADMIT IT.

>> YOU BLAME RUSSIA FOR THERECENT CURRENT EVENTS?

WE CALL YOUR PRESIDENT A WUSSUNLIKE OUR TRUE LEADER, VLADIMIR

PUTIN.

>> Jon: YOU SHUT UP, LANA.

I AM SO SICK OF HER AND RUSEVTRASH TALKING AMERICA.

AND SURE, MAYBE THEY BEAT JACKSWAGGER LAST NIGHT, BUT THAT WAS

A COUNT-OUT, IT WASN'T EVENA REAL PIN. AND SWAGGER'S BEEN

OFF HIS GAME ANYWAY. EVER SINCETAG-TEAM PARTNER ANTONIO CESARO

TURNED ON HIM AND ABANDONED THEREAL AMERICANS TO GO SOLO AS THE

THE KING OF SWING, BUTCESARO WAIT UNTIL SUMMER SLAM

BECAUSE JACK IS --[LAUGHTER]

WRONG ROOM? [CLEARS THROAT]

WELL, WATCH OUT, PUTIN, BECAUSEAMERICA HAS

SOMETHING THAT NO PROPAGANDA CANDEFEAT, THE MORAL HIGH GROUND.

>> ONE RUSSIAN DEPUTY PRIMEMINISTER EVEN SNIPED AT THE U.S.

ON TWITTER, "THE WHITE HOUSE HASFOUND GUILT BEFORE ANY

INVESTIGATION, JUST LIKE SADDAMHUSSEIN AND HIS WEAPONS OF MASS

DESTRUCTION."

[AUDIENCE REACTS].

>> Jon: THAT'S GOING TO LEAVEMARK.

YOU INVADE ONE COUNTRY UNDER APRETEXT THAT YOU LEARN ALMOST

IMMEDIATELY WAS FALSE AND THENQUIETLY CHANGE THAT PRETEXT AND

PRETEND LIKE YOU NEVERMADE THE MISTAKE IN THE

FIRST PLACE AND THEY NEVER LETYOU FORGET IT.

[LAUGHTER]YOU KNOW WHAT FINE, WE DON'T

NEED YOU, RUSSIA, OR HOWDANGEROUS YOU MAKE UKRAINIAN

AIR SPACE. THERE ARE OTHER WAYSTO GET WHERE WE WANT TO GO.

>> THE AIRLINE REROUTED A FLIGHTFROM KUALA LUMPUR TO LONDON.

IT COULD NOT USE THE USUAL ROUTEOVER UKRAINE FOLLOWING THE

DOWNING OF FLIGHT 17.

SO THE AIRLINE REROUTED THEFLIGHT OVER SYRIA, THAT IS,

AS YOU KNOW, ANOTHER WAR ZONE.

[AUDIENCE REACTING].

>> Jon: YEP.

THAT'S WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW INTHE WORLD.

WHEN THE AREA ABOVE AN ONGOINGCIVIL WAR THAT'S KILLED TENS OF

THOUSANDS AND INVOLVED THE USEOF CHEMICAL WEAPONS IS KNOWN AS

"THE COMMUTER LANE."

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
