In other words, they lied. Again.
From The Washington Examiner.
A State Department video has been altered in what could be an attempt to hide a 2013 discussion with reporters about whether the Obama administration lied about when it first began the Iran nuclear talks.
Fox News reporter James Rosen reported Monday night that a section of a Dec. 2, 2013 press briefing was somehow erased from the State Department’s own video of the event. In the section that was erased, Rosen was interviewing then-spokeswoman Jen Psaki about when the talks started.
……Rosen pressed Psaki in 2013 on whether the talks really started in 2011. While Psaki made no clear admission that the talks started two years earlier, she did seem to admit that government officials might not tell the truth in order to maintain the secrecy of an event.
“Is it the policy of the State Department, where the preservation or the secrecy of secret negotiations is concerned, to lie in order to achieve that goal?” Rosen asked.
“James, I think there are times where diplomacy needs privacy in order to progress. This is a good example of that,” she replied.
……When pressed again, Psaki said she had no more information. Still, Rosen reported Monday that Psaki’s comments were essentially an admission that the administration lied about when the talks started, and the circumstances under which they began.
The entire exchange, and some comments leading up to and following the exchange, don’t appear on the State Department video that was up Monday night. Instead, a white flash is seen where the edit was made, at about 26:55 into the video.
First they blamed it on a ‘glitch’:
The State Department said Tuesday that a “glitch” led a video on its website to be altered in such a way that it removed comments from a spokeswoman who seemed to admit in 2013 that the government lied about when the Iran nuclear talks started.
“There was a glitch in the State Department video,” spokeswoman Elizabeth Trudeau told reporters.
…….”When Fox flagged it for us, we actually replaced it” with video from another source, she said.
When pressed, Trudeau said State wasn’t aware of any other videos that might have been subject to similar glitches, but said officials are looking more closely at it.
Barky’s spin doctor, Ben Rhodes, fed the leftwing media hacks with talking points, then bragged that he created a media “echo chamber” to sell Obama’s foreign policy to the public. Anyone with half a brain didn’t buy it to begin with, which excludes his adoring sycophants.
They have a habit of censoring things that embarrass them with the truth. They censored outright the phrase, “But we’re also well aware that the roots of terrorism, Islamist terrorism, is in Syria and in Iraq. We therefore have to act both in Syria and in Iraq, and this is what we’re doing within the framework of the coalition” from a statement made by French President Francois Hollande during a meeting at the White House. The liberal main stream media neglected to cover that, as well.
The lie about the timing is just a small part of this shit sandwich. Obama’s Iran deal is as corrupt as it is cowardly. The mutherfucker gave Iran the capability to create enriched uranium, which essentially gives them the green light to make nuclear weapons.
