It’s pretty clear that the Obama administration engages in lies and crimes against God, the Constitution and the people of America on a daily basis. In fact, we have at least 1,180 documented examples of this. However, the continued to push to prey on the short memories of Americans is outrageous when it comes to the State Department’s latest claim that there have been no statements regarding boots on the ground in Syria. The video evidence, however, demonstrates that the Department is lying.
On Monday, Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah announced that he will be sending four times the number of Special Forces troops into Syria to fight the Islamic State. What’s interesting is that he made this announcement on the same day he “ruled out” deploying troops into Syria!
“Just as I approved additional support for Iraqi forces against ISIL, I’ve decided to increase U.S. support for local forces fighting ISIL in Syria, a small number of special operations forces are already on the ground in Syria, and their expertise has been critical as local forces have driven ISIL out of key areas,” Obama said.
However, State Department Spokesliar John Kirby found it baffling that Associated Press reporter Matt Lee would question Obama over this announcement in light of his previous comments and didn’t know where the “no boots on the ground” comments were coming from. Take a listen.
“I’m just curious if this is, like, part of some kind of devious grand strategy to say one thing and then do the complete opposite of it,” Lee asked.
“I just — I don’t see it that way,” Kirby answered. “There was never this ‘no boots on the ground.’ I don’t know where this keeps coming from.”
“For months and months and months, the mantra — from the President and … everyone else in the Administration — has been ‘no boots on the ground,’ and now —”
“That is not true,” Kirby interrupted.
“What?” exclaimed Lee. It appears everyone else in the room was thinking the same thing by their reaction.
“It’s just not true, Matt,” Kirby said.
“When we talk about boots on the ground in the context that you have heard people in the administration speak to, we are talking about conventional, large-scale ground troops that are designed to actually engage in, plan, coordinate, integrate, and engage in combat operations on the ground as units,” Kirby said. “We’re not doing that. We’ve never done that in Iraq or in Syria, and we’re not going to do it now.”
While outlets like Politifact deemed Kirby’s statements to be false, they do recognize that “legitimate reasons for differentiating between a large ground force and a smaller number of special operations forces.” However, the fact remains that Obama told the American people time and time again that there would be no boots on the ground in Syria without making such a distinction. As a matter of fact, we are not yet to the point of Orwell’s 1984 memory hole deleting of history just yet. So, for educational purposes of Mr. Kirby, I present to you the exposing of his lies, and yes, they are lies.
Finally, seeing that the Obama administration has funded, trained and armed the jihadists in the region, which Arizona Senator John McCain claimed became the Islamic State, I wouldn’t think they would want to put a lot of Americans in the midst of Syria to stop Obama’s Islamic bedfellows.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
