There is no way that the US will let the media say that Kiev did it. I don't care how the evidence points, they will make up some story and still blame it on the militia or Russia. There can be no other way. They have been ignoring or denying everything else that Kiev has done to its own people so far. This will be no different.
Just a question that I've been pondering. What will the west do if Kiev is responsible for the downing of Malaysian Flight 17? With all the blustering, finger pointing and threats at Russia and the "Separatists" for this dastardly deed. From what I can see only Kiev could have caused this aircraft to fly into a restricted airspace and only they had the necessary air traffic control to coordinate the missile attack that probably brought the plane down.
