Vladimir Putin to head investigation into Polish president's death

What a tremendous blow to Poland who I consider our single greatest ally in Eastern Europe. Every American should lament this most terrible tragedy.

That being said, Expect Putin to protect Russia from any possible responsiblity great or small.
Russia says Prime Minister Vladimir Putin will personally head the investigation into an aeroplane crash that killed Poland's president.

A total of 96 people were on board the plane that crashed near the western Russian city of Smolensk, all of whom are believed to be dead.

Polish president Lech Kaczynski was on board the Russian-built Tupolev 154 jet when it went down in heavy fog near a military airport.

Russian authorities have already said they suspect pilot error in the crash, near Smolensk, in Western Russia.

There are reports the jet made several attempted landings before the crash.
