Fox News reporter James Rosen is upset. At a State Department press conference held on December 2nd, 2013, he caught State lying. That portion of the video has been deleted. In that presser, Rosen pointed out that former spokesperson Victoria Nuland had told reporters that the Obama caliphate was not involved in secret talks with Iran. Nuland, you may remember was waist deep in the editing of the CIA report on Benghazi. Nuland was promoted for her lying and Jen Psaki took her place. You remember Jen. She said Islamists become terrorists because they don’t have jobs. (Or midnight basketball?)
The video is important because Rosen got Psaki to admit that they had lied to the American people. James Rosen explains:
“Late today, we discovered that the State Department’s video of its December 2, 2013, press briefing, at which I confronted spokesperson Jen Psaki about the false statement made by her predecessor, Victoria Nuland – the one you saw in my story tonight – has itself, with the use of a white flash, been deleted from both the State Department’s official website and from its YouTube channel. In that exchange, Psaki effectively admitted that the administration had lied to me because the diplomacy needed ‘privacy.’”
When confronted, the State Department says they have no idea how that part of the video became deleted and that they were working to put it back in. That’s something a good IT person can do in about 30 seconds.
Enter Ben Rhodes, who was a failed fiction writer before going to work for the Obama caliphate, where he became a successful fiction writer, as evidenced by his editing of the CIA report that took out all mention of terrorists and blamed the attack on an internet video. CBS News refused to report on that editing. Not surprising when you consider the president of CBS News is David Rhodes, Ben’s brother.
In an article published on Medium on Monday, Rhodes wrote “we never made any secret of our interest in pursuing a nuclear deal with Iran.”
“The fact that there were discreet channels of communication established with Iran in 2012 is something that we confirmed publicly,” he added.
Rosen alleged “that’s not true,” arguing that the “talks were under way for eight months” at the time of the now-deleted exchange.
