From Fox News: "A plane carrying Polish President Lech Kaczynski, his wife and two top Polish officials crashed Saturday while landing at Smolensk airport in western Russia.
"It clipped the tops of the trees, crashed down and broke into pieces," the governor of the Smolensk region, Sergei Antufiev, told Russia-24 television news network by telephone.
A Russian investigator said 132 were killed.
Polish foreign ministry spokesman Piotr Pszkowski said the Polish president, accompanied by his wife, the army chief of staff and Deputy Foreign Minister Andrzej Kremer were on board the plane." http://www.foxnews.com/world/2010/04/10/polish-presidents-plane-crashes-russia-killing/
This plane crash is going to devastate the government of Poland. The president, army chief of staff and the deputy foreign minister were killed. If this happened in the U.S., we would have lost Obama (perhaps Biden depending on how powerful the president of Poland is), chairman of the joint chiefs and Hillary or 1 step below Hillary.
It also has to be noted that this would never happen in the U.S. as it seems anybody in Washington D.C. who is a major leader in government has use of a military plane.
So, please keep the the people of Poland in your prayers as they struggle to get through this tragedy.
