Morrison also said it appeared to be a mistake. “All of the intelligence as presented to us today does not suggest an intentional act,” he said.

It doesn't clarify if they mean "oopsie we forgot this big button was tied to a missile launcher that targets commercial airliners automatically" vs "the Iranian government did not initiate this attack intentionally and it may have been a rogue group". Seems like that part should have been expanded upon.

To me, it seems to be a mistake by some jumpy Sam site operator. With tensions and recent attacks, I can see a scenario in which the large jet liner was mistaken for a bomber.

Obviously there should be some sort of system in place to prevent this. But this scenario seems far more likely than an intentional attack. I just dont see what they would have to gain from that.
