Past and present Obama Administration officials lie to the American people with such alacrity that it is clear that they’re secure in the knowledge that the mainstream media will cover for them no matter what. No lie is too extreme or outrageous — they know that they will never be genuinely called to account, never made to answer for what they’ve said or done in the past, except to be accorded generous opportunities to explain away uncomfortable facts or statements, and never subjected to the slightest negative questioning.
“Hillary Clinton: Taliban Five Not a Threat to U.S” Washington Free Beacon, June 11, 2014:
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the five Taliban commanders who were released in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl “are not a threat to the United States” during her NBC interview shown Wednesday morning on Today….
CYNTHIA MCFADDEN: Clinton writes in her book, the U.S. was involved in negotiations with the Taliban while she was Secretary of State, and even then, getting Bowe Bergdahl back was part of the equation. I think an awful lot of people think that we’re less safe today than we were a week ago because these five guys are out.
HILLARY CLINTON: These five guys are not a threat to the United States. They are a threat to the safety and security of Afghanistan and Pakistan. It’s up to those two countries to make the decision once and for all that these are threats to them. So I think we may be kind of missing the bigger picture here. We want to get an American home, whether they fell off the ship because they were drunk or they were pushed or they jumped, we try to rescue everybody.
