Jay Carney’s Chilling Press ConferenceWednesday, May 4th, 2011
Sometimes listening to what they are saying is the best thing you can do.
Today White House spokesman Jay Carney appeared at a press conference and fell over himself on several points.
As he was justifying the White House decision not to release photographs of bin Laden post execution, he first stated the man had been shot in the head. Moments later, when pressed, he slipped up and referred to bin Laden having been “shot in the face”.
It took a few minutes before anyone in the press challenged this slip up, and Carney’s response was to say “he was shot above the neck” and refused to be drawn further.
One might suggest that all of this could be called hiding in full view.
He also stated that the White House would not be releasing more information regarding the specifics of the raid so as not to compromise the methods employed by these forces for any future similar missions.
Plain as day Jay Carney is telling us that the US administration may again enter another nation’s territory without permission and assassinate a “bad guy”.
Near the end of his appearance he referred to the other people who were executed at the weekend as “collateral damage”.
Throughout, his speech was peppered with the calculated repetition of the phrase “because of who we (America) are”.
“Because of who we (this administration) are, we entered another country and executed a number of people, shooting one of them in the face – but it was all done in the name of peace.” Yes? No? Bullshit?
