(Seaford, NY) -- Long Island Congressman Peter King is blaming Vladimir Putin for the downing of that Malaysian Airlines jet in eastern Ukraine. While it's still unclear who launched the strike, King is urging President Obama to hold Russia's president accountable. King chairs the House Subcommitte on Counterterrorism and told CNN today that "It's almost criminal negligence...to give this type of weaponry to separatists." The White House has released a statement calling for a "full, credible and unimpeded international investigation as quickly as possible."
