At Least One American Killed in Malaysian Jet Crash

President Barack Obama said Friday that at least one American citizen was killed in the crash of a Malaysian Airlines passenger jet near the border of Ukraine and Russia and called the shooting down of the jet "an outrage of unspeakable proportions."

In remarks at the White House, Obama called the incident a "global tragedy" and called for a credible international investigation of the crash.

Obama confirmed that a surface-to-air missile fired in territory controlled by Russian separatists brought the plane down but said that it's too early to determine exactly who ordered the strike and why.

"This should snap everybody’s heads to attention," he said, decrying "misinformation" coming out of the region. "We don’t have time for propaganda, we don’t have time for games."
