1. It must have been a quick co-orinated and orgganized search of the bodies over a 9 mile debris fiels to recover all those passports, odd
2. In mint condition after such a violent crash, odd
3. If the passports were found in one bag, that is unusual
4. Some passports have holes and corners cut off, usually indicating a redundant passport

One thing that I do not like about this entire incident is that they are showing pics and vids on the internet/media of the dead bodies.
I feel sorry for any family member of the victims that see their dead loved-ones being paraded all over the net and TV.

I am watching CNN, and they just said that it was very likely that it was shot down by Russian missiles.
However someone who is NOT tied in and just turns his search and acquisition radar on will only see a "blip" - with no further identification.
There is no such thing as simple "blip" on a SAM Radar console. I have operated such system in real world, they are equiped with IFF. The IFF antenna is most of the time "embedded" within the Radar dish, at least for older system. They are also networked with other system, for NATO force, one such channel is called "link 16".

What the hell is a Malaysian plane doing overhead over a war torn area?

You can get a free app on android and ios that lets you track commercial flights.
You can pay a couple of quid for a better version.
If I was using some daft free app available to the general public i could tell you what that plane was.
Accidents like that just don't happen any more.
No way in a billions years a country like Russia (or even just pro Russian Ukranian rebels) would be making that mistake.
This plane coming down is not a mistake.
It can't be.

See here...he took credit on Twitter before it was realized it was a Commercial Airliner..
Russian-backed separatist leader Igor Girkin (who also goes by the name of Strelkov) claimed credit. "The plane has just been taken down somewhere around Torez (Donetsk Oblast). It lays there behind the Progress mine. We did warn you – do not fly in 'our sky.' And here is the video proving another 'bird' falling down. The bird went down behind the slagheap, not in the residential district. So no peaceful people were injured." There is also information about another plane shot.
The Buk missile system that the Donetsk People's Republic's Kremlin-backed insurgents claimed to be in their possession this summer. The Buk system is capable of shooting down a jetliner flying at the altitude of the crashed Malaysia Airlines plane carrying 295 people.
Strelkov, however, apparently mistook the plane for the Ukrainian air force's. He is a Moscow native who Ukraine's State Security Service says is a high-ranking officer in Russia's military intelligence department.
It appears the Russian-backed separatists had weapons capable of downing a commercial flight at 10 kilometers high or 35,000 feet high.

If you have seen the pictures from said debris field you will see that most of them are not charred at all and is consistent of a mid air breakup where the passengers would have fallen out of the sky, the passports IMO have been collected from these passengers which are strewn over the 9 miles of debris.
The impact and burning crater is of the front section of the plane where the wings and engines were connected hence why there was an explosion. This again is consistent with a decompression of the rear of the plane.
But don't let a good conspiracy go to waste huh?
