As an international analyst I work with lots of information and in doing so I need to separate the facts from the fecal matter……..it is very difficult at times for there is so much misinformation and outright lies flying around that it becomes very difficult to find the truth and pass it on……..
I love my job (the pay sucks) and I will continue to help people understand what is truly happening in the Middle East………and I like to start by pointing out the mental midgets that lie to influence…….and one of the biggest liars is a politician named…..Sen. Ted Cruz.
This person is responsible for passing out the most outrageous lies in Washington……..some of his most outrageous have come at the hands of the Iran nuke deal…….
Awhile back after the announcement of the deal he made and terribly irresponsible statement……..
The flamboyant Texas senator and Republican presidential candidate seized the spotlight at a hearing on Capitol Hill on Wednesday to grill Defense Secretary Ash Carter about an alleged document listing the names of some 500 U.S. service members whose combat deaths can be directly linked to Iran.
“Secretary Carter, I understand that the Joint Personnel Recovery Agency has a classified list of roughly 500 American soldiers who were murdered by Iranian [improvised explosive devices],”
This statement made the nightly news and a couple of hours of comments and opinions on his claim……but there is a problem………
The Joint Personnel Recovery Agency “has not produced, nor do they have in their possession, or any knowledge of the existence of, the list referred to by Senator Cruz, or one similar to it,” a spokesman for the Joint Chiefs of Staff told Military Times on Thursday.
Another defense official familiar with the 500 estimate told Military Times that the Defense Department does not specifically track casualties linked to Iran and that the estimate is a rough figure based on various intelligence assessments.
In other words Cruz got some info from a neocon think tank and passed it on without verification as fact when it was NOT…….at best it was a LIE.
He was not finished with the Iran deal……..now that he has a position within the GOP candidate list he will say whatever gets him attention……and that attention will be , as usual, LIES.
Now he is spouting crap that AIPAC wants out there to sway people against the deal……and as usual it is LIES!
Now Cruz is saying that if the deal goes through then shortly there will be a mushroom cloud over Israel……..pathetic attempt to sway….with the use of LIES!
This is why we are hated across the Middle East…..Americans too quickly believe lies and act on those lies…….and look at what those lies have given the country……….a war WITHOUT end………..if people would demand the truth at all times things might improve……..but that would be wishful thinking…….
And that is why they hate us……we have lying pricks as representatives………
