Watch as the State Department refuses to defend Israel against accusations of terrorism

First they refused to label an obvious act of terrorism as such in Benghazi. Now the Prime Minister of Turkey openly calls Israel a “terrorist state,” and they refuse to condemn it.


It’s very strange to watch a reporter doing his job during a Democratic administration. Especially considering he works for the Associated Press. Victoria Nuland tries the usual empty, mealy-mouthed filibustering, and Matthew Lee is not having it. Good for him.

He finally gets this concession: “We of course agree that rhetorical attacks against Israel are not helpful at this moment. Is that what you were looking for, Matt?” My goodness. Yes, how dare he badger her for a statement on such a minor matter?

Hang in there, Israel. Sorry about this. Four more years.

P.S. 4 men in Southern California charged with attempting to support terrorism. Talk about hiding in plain sight…
