The Utterly Confusing State Department: Obama’s ISIS Strategy Has No Flaws…But It’s Not Flawless

Does anyone have the slightest idea what this crazy woman is talking about? State Department Spokeswoman Jen Psaki has done some verbal somersaults in her day, but few have been as inane as the one she attempted during her latest spat with Matt Lee of The Associated Press.

At first, Psaki declared that there are no flaws in Obama’s strategy to “degrade and ultimately destroy ISIL.” In near disbelief, Lee asked for clarification. “Are you saying that the president and the U.S.’s strategy is flawless?

I was making a point about what our approach and what our military approach is,” Psaki replied. “That is not what I said.”

Um…yeah it is, Jen.

What clearly happened here is Psaki had a momentary lapse. A “Valley Girl Moment,” if you will. For whatever reason, she temporarily thought she could get away with characterizing the administration’s strategy as impeccable. She must have forgotten where she was for a few brief seconds, because there was no way an intrepid reporter like Matt Lee was going to let her off the hook for that blunder.

These press briefings are becoming increasingly pointless. Obama’s numerous mouthpieces in each department seem to just say whatever they feel like and then, if challenged, they simply deny ever having said it. It’s like dealing with toddlers who haven’t even mastered the art of good lying yet.
