What? The Soviets aren't good enough for you? Quoting: Halcyon Dayz, FCD
If you mean the old Soviet Union, of course not. The world now knows that the Soviet Union was an inveterate liar.
If you mean today's Russians, what concrete evidence have they presented? Do you have their sworn testimony under cross-examination?
And IF it were NASA would have the presumption of innocence. Quoting: Halcyon Dayz, FCD
You are obviously not familiar with American law.
The presumption of innocence only applies to criminal cases. Civil cases, such as a lawsuit alleging fraud, are judged according to the preponderance of evidence; and the evidence is gathered during discovery
, a process whereby the plaintiff can subpoena physical evidence and documentation and compel sworn testimony under cross-examination
. Discovery occurs prior to the actual court trial.
Actually, a somewhat similar process occurs in criminal cases too. Long before the actual court trial, a grand jury subpoenas physical evidence and documentation and compels sworn testimony under cross-examination. This is all in order to decide whether to put the suspect on trial.
