This Is What A Liar Looks Like When He’s Frustrated

Secretary of State John Kerry has spent years making his liberal bed; now he’s lying in it (yes, that’s a double entendre). As and others have demonstrated with far more evidence than Kerry has shown, the fact is that the charge that Syrian rebels were behind the chemical attacks in Syria carries far more weight than Kerry’s position – that Assad did it.


In the exchange below with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Kerry is obviously fighting to defend a lie, which explains why he’s so emotional. As you watch, pay attention to some notable quotes from Kerry:

“You’re not dealing with facts.”

That’s called a liar using projection.

“…every single one of the chemical weapons that were terrorizing the people of Syria would have still been in Assad’s hands.”

Another lie from the Secretary of State. Even if – after all of the evidence presented by – one isn’t convinced that it was the rebels who used chemical weapons, Kerry’s assertion that Assad is the only one with chemical weapons is belied by this lone photo. It was taken inside a building run by the rebels. Note that it says, “Saudi Factory for Chlorine and Alkalies”. The Saudis support the rebels.

Speaking of chlorine, check out this quote from Kerry:

“…the only weapon that we think may have been used is NOT one that is automatically included under the chemical weapons convention. It’s chlorine. We are investigating that right now, Chris and if we find that there has been a use, there will be consequences.”

If you want the best analysis for what went on in Syria and who stood to gain, be sure to read the exhaustive piece by Seymour Hersh, as relayed by It explains that Turkey was ultimately behind the attack because it needed Obama to declare that the ‘red line’ had been crossed by Assad. In reality, it was all a lie.

Here is the last paragraph of Hersh’s piece:

Barring a major change in policy by Obama, Turkey’s meddling in the Syrian civil war is likely to go on. ‘I asked my colleagues if there was any way to stop Erdoğan’s continued support for the rebels, especially now that it’s going so wrong,’ the former intelligence official told me. ‘The answer was: “We’re screwed.” We could go public if it was somebody other than Erdoğan, but Turkey is a special case. They’re a Nato ally. The Turks don’t trust the West. They can’t live with us if we take any active role against Turkish interests. If we went public with what we know about Erdoğan’s role with the gas, it’d be disastrous. The Turks would say: “We hate you for telling us what we can and can’t do.”’

Can anyone think of a better reason why Kerry is lying his long face off?
