Boehner On Downed Plane: ‘Horrifying’


House Speaker John Boehner issued a brief statement on Thursday following reports of a downed Malaysia Airlines jet in eastern Ukraine near the Russian border.

“Many innocents were killed today. It is horrifying, and we await the facts. Right now, we should all take a moment to reflect, count our blessings, and convey our prayers to the loved ones of the victims,” the Ohio Republican said.
