More than 70 people were killed when the two planes hit over Germany.
The control tower chief says the timing of the initial warning was "fairly tight," but he says they were not irresponsible.
Controllers initially said they had given the Russian pilot about two minutes advance notice -- and that he didn't start descending to avoid a collision until a third request.
Fifty two of those killed were children and teenagers on the Russian charter flight.

Military brass at the Pentagon are trying to figure out exactly what happened yesterday in central Afghanistan, where villagers say scores of people were killed in a U-S aerial assault.
U-S officials say they still haven't confirmed any deaths. But they say U-S aircraft hit six locations that were believed to be sources of anti-aircraft fire. Aleen Sirgany has the latest.

It's too soon to know exactly what happened in central Afghanistan where villagers report scores of civilians were killed in U.S. air attacks, but the Pentagon says United States forces believed they had come under artillery fire when they fired back.
General Peter Pace, U.S. Marine Corps: IF A U.S. MILITARY UNIT IS TAKING FIRE THEY HAVE THE ABSOLUTE RIGHT OF INHERENT SELF DEFENSE TO RETURN FIRE. :10
U.S. investigators, Afghan government representatives and reporters traveled to the province of Uruzgan, where Afghan Foreign Minister Abdullah said 40 civilians were killed and another 100 wounded. Survivors say the planes attacked a wedding, perhaps mistaking celebratory fire from the party for anti- aircraft fire.
Gen. Pace IF YOU HAPPEN TO BE THE PERSON THAT'S ON THE OTHER END OF WHATEVER WEAPON IT IS THAT'S POINTED AT YOU AND IT IS FIRING, IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO KNOW WHETHER THAT'S A FRIENDLY MUZZLE FLASH OR AN ENEMY MUZZLE FLASH, SO WE HAVE TO LET THE TEAM GO OUT AND FIND OUT WHAT THEY FIND OUT.
The aircraft were on a reconnaissance mission, searching the area thought to be home to Taliban and Al Qaida operatives. The Afghan government expressed no doubt about the intentions of the mission, but called for strong measures and better intelligence to avoid a repeat of attacks on civilians.

IT WILL NOT BE ACCEPTABLE FOR THE PEOPLE OF AFGHANISTAN IF THAT BECOMES A PATTERN.

Americans won't be able to buy water laced with nicotine -- at least not anytime soon.
The Food and Drug Administration has ruled that the addictive chemical in tobacco is a drug and can't be sold as a dietary supplement.
The distinction is important. The F-D-A can regulate drugs, but it has less power to regulate supplements.
A California company had planned to market NicoWater in bottles beginning this month.
It promotes the product as a way for smokers to get the nicotine they crave without subjecting others to smoke.
The company hasn't decided yet if it will appeal the ruling.
