Comedy Hour At The US State Department

by Katherine Frisk: 

us-state-department-screenshot_1The Obama administration is almost over. Thank God! It has been one of the most tumultuous periods in history. The wars in Libya, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Ukraine take some beating as well as the constant threats against Russia and the very high possibility of all out WW3 under this “Democratatic” President that sold himself as hope and change and soon after walking into the White House was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

Include in all of it the Arab Spring “regime change” colour revolutions engineered by the Open Society Soros Foundations, the Occupy Wall Street Movement, the International around the World Marches Against Monsanto and the anti Fracking groups in many countries. And along with it all was the FAKE NEWS Main Stream Mockingbird CIA directed Media churning out the propaganda along with False Flag attacks with crisis actors seen in the Batman Shooting, Sandy Hook and Boston Bombing marathon  to name a few.

I am not going to miss it…. though whether the next four years will actually hold any prospects of a better future remains to be seen.

And more important, what will the announcements from Donald Trump’s State Department be like? Because one thing I am going to miss, is Comedy Hour at the Obama Administration’s State Department briefing sessions. How any of them up on the podium answering questions from the press managed to keep a straight face on most days is beyond me. Bald faced lies which anyone with any intelligence whatsoever who knew the facts on the ground regarded as some sick White House version of satire.

Here are some of the examples we have seen in recent years.

WHOA! EMBARRASSING! US State Dept Reps Caught in Obvious Lie

 

US State Department Spokesperson Loses Composure Under Heavy Questioning Full 10 Minute Version

Published on 12 Dec 2015

RT Reporter Gayane Chichakyan shows US reporters how real questioning is conducted and the proof of her effectiveness is shown by US State Department representative John Kirby losing his composure and insulting the reporter and the TV network she works for along with the country of Russia. Note how the State Department spokesperson continually dodges the question while the reporter stays on point. As she reiterates the main point of the question that wasn’t answered John Kirby shows his frustration with the line of questioning and then resorts to insults and demagoguery. This is classic deflection technique. The reporter continues to remain professional and once again reiterates the question at hand. For a third time the question is dodged and the State Department spokesperson embarrasses the United States by exhibiting characteristics that are considered unprofessional in global diplomatic protocol. Simply put, his loss of compose and dodging of the question combined with resorting to insults provide a disservice to the US citizens that he represents.

An insufficient answer to the question is given by Kirby at the 5:55 mark in the video and is unsatisfactory due to the fact that the Iraqi government has stated on record that they do not welcome the Turkish troops on their territory. Link here:

The reporters question highlights the hypocrisy of the US government who have stated previously that sovereign nations have a right to keep other countries militarys outside of their territorial boundaries. During recent events in Turkey and Ukraine, the US has stated this position, however, the RT reporters question highlights the US State Department hypocrisy when it comes to Iraq. The US is talking out of both sides of its mouth when it comes to Iraqs sovereignty and also that of Syria and Yemen who are all being illegally invaded by other militarys and militants that have US backing and are killing innocent civilians on their sovereign territory. That is what is at the heart of the reporters question. It’s unfortunate that US reporters do not dig as deep as the RT reporter. Where are THEIR hard questions about THEIR own governments nefarious actions?

It is also worth noting that Kirby states an outright lie when he says that “Turkey and Iraq are working out their differences so everyone else can focus on fighting IS — “which, by the way, the Russians aren’t doing.” This is factually incorrect. Russia has provided a 22 minute drone and satellite video presentation showing their massive bombardment of ISIS oil facilities and convoys proving that the US did not target ISIS or their oil facilities for the entire past year and that the US only commenced bombing ISIS’s infrastructure after Russia started effectively destroying them. This exposure has angered the US and highlighted that they know NATO ally Turkey is profiting from ISIS oil sales, thereby highlighting that the US is unwilling to go after the head of the hydra when it comes to ISIS. Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States continue to get a free pass.
