5-minute video: 2 US State Dept officials squirm, lie, REFUSE to provide evidence that ‘Russia bombs hospitals’

hat tip: Russia Insider, What Really Happened

Russia Today’s Gayane Chichakyan questions spokesperson for the United States Department of State Admiral John Kirby, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense:

“Do you have any evidence that Russia bombed hospitals in Syria?”

The admiral’s answer, amid “ummm, and ahhh,” claims to have seen “press reporting,” testimony of un-named sources, and other unspecified reporting.

When asked for specific evidence, the admiral refused further detail and claimed to have answered the question.

The second clip in the video is US Department of State Director of the Press Office Elizabeth Trudeau pressed with the question of what exact hospital was hit by Russia and where. She states that she stands with Mr. Kirby, refuses to answer what hospital was hit, then accuses Russia of “targeting civilian infrastructure.”

Ms. Trudeau claims she can’t discuss the location of the hospital hit by Russian bombing because it is a “detail of operational assessment.”

AP reporter Matthew Lee asks how a location of a hospital harms intelligence sources or methods; Ms. Trudeau fails to provide a location or name of the hospital.

Ms. Chichakyan provides photographic evidence of a hospital in the area that shows no evidence of harm. Ms. Trudeau fails to answer if that is or is not the hospital the US accuses Russia of bombing.

These are the tragic-comic official lies of empire. Please note the flashes of micro-smiles during the two US officials’ non-answers that are evidence of duping delight.

The significance of these two US State Department Officials’ ridiculous performances to accuse Russia of War Crimes without evidence, and even refuse to provide the location of a hospital they claimed was bombed, is pathetic attempt to defend ongoing US empire in the Middle East; in this case to install a “friendly regime” in Syria.

It also comes after the US intentionally bombed a hospital in Afghanistan, then machine-gunned survivors attempting to flee the clearly-marked hospital.

When Americans are ready, they will demand answers, and will choose to recognize the United States today is the leading global criminal empire among the so-called “former” colonial powers; ridiculous in Emperor’s New Clothes obvious crimes for anyone caring to look at the facts:

These crimes annually cost millions killed, billions harmed, and trillions looted, with recent history continuing literal centuries of US lie-began Wars of Aggression that involved your families in two horrific global wars for colonial empire.

What is a solution?

I continue to assert a proven, obvious, and legal method:

  • Arrests of .01% “leaders” for obvious crimes centering in war, money and lies (4-part series on arrests with videos).
  • Leveraging a reclaimed media, continue arrests with generous plea bargains and Truth & Reconciliation for testimony, documentary evidence, and physical evidence to best put the “Big Picture” together in preparation to build the brighter future for all Earth’s inhabitants’ success.
  • SOLUTIONS: the .01% with corporate media have suppressed solutions documented beginning with Benjamin Franklin how government can abundantly operate without taxes: monetary and credit reform allow the public to have near-instant prosperity: full-employment, zero public deficits and debt, the best infrastructure we can imagine, falling prices, and release of public TRILLIONS held in “rainy day” accounts.

    No truth from these militaries.Though optical resolution from the satellite is less than 1 meter, they have not undestood whose tanks are in Ukraine yet.

    And I often wonder why the “honorable” military has not stepped in to put a stop to all the madness. This is exactly why: the military is run by madmen.

      It’s an “Emperor’s New Clothes” setting; when critical mass is reached, we win in an instant.

    Just relax…your govt is in good hands and knows what it’s doing as we can see here.

    It appears that 60% of the population is just fine with this government. That’s about how many keep electing these criminals. I think it will keep getting worse and doubt it will ever get better because these psychopaths will probably cause nuclear Armageddon.

      Then you’d better fully self-express now, and lead by example for others to do the same.

      Wasn’t the turnout in the US in 2014 the lowest since 1942? I believe amongst the young it was around 20% or something risible. ‘Democracy without choices’, as they quickly dubbed it in Eastern Europe after their ‘Liberation’.

    • Actually, you will never hear this America’s version of the Russian Pravda known as the MSM!

      September 29th, 2015 Gallup: 60% of Americans Want a New Political Party. But, Why? A Crisis of Legitimacy.

      When Gallup started polling on this matter in 2003, only 40% wanted a different major party from the two existing major parties.

      A Gallup poll issued on September 25th is headlined “Majority in U.S. Maintain Need for Third Major Party,” and it opens: “A majority of Americans, 60%, say a third major political party is needed because the Republican and Democratic parties ‘do such a poor job’ of representing the American people.”

    These apparatchiki of what Chomsky rightly called the ‘Real Evil Empire’ are emanations from Hell, little pustules of mendacity, hypocrisy and every other villainy one can think of. I wonder when the last decent human being was ejected from Mordor-on-the-Potomac.

    lie you little fu*k you american as*hole, american media, such a joke

    • Carl_Herman

      Dude, you shouldn’t suppress those feelings; say what you really want!

      Seriously, you’re feeling what “We the People” need to feel. When enough of us feel what you do, we’ll win in an “Emperor’s New Clothes” moment 🙂

    Russia’s President Putin found himself having to ask BBC journalist John Simpson if he has any common sense at all, as he pushed the establishment line that Russia is an aggressor in the world.

    Kirby and Trudeau are such condescending douchebags! I love it when the No Agenda Show refers to them (and the comically-named Josh Earnest) as “spokesholes.” Gayane “Natasha Hotski” Chichakyan and Matt Lee kick butt!
