Default John Kerry on his boat during Egypt upheaval, State Dept. concedes

This administrtion caught lying?....Say it isn't so!...

They just could've said, "Kerry was on his boat, but was in communication with the White House at all times." and it wouldn't have been a big deal (except for, maybe, optics)....

But NOOOOO...They had to LIE and say "Kerry wasn't on any boat! STFU!!!!!"...
...until CBS caught them in the lie...

John Kerry on his boat during Egypt upheaval, State Dept. concedes

Quote:
As regime change was unfolding in Egypt, Secretary of State John Kerry spent time on his boat Wednesday afternoon in Nantucket Sound, the State Department acknowledged to CBS News on Friday, after repeatedly denying that Kerry was aboard any boat.

"While he was briefly on his boat on Wednesday, Secretary Kerry worked around the clock all day including participating in the President's meeting with his national security council," said State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki, naming a series of Egyptian and international officials Kerry had spoken with on Wednesday.

Psaki's acknowledgment marked a stark reversal from previous denials that Kerry was on any boat whatsoever.

A "CBS This Morning" producer spotted Kerry on his boat Wednesday afternoon on Nantucket, where Kerry has a vacation home. When "CBS This Morning" senior producer Mosheh Oinounou tweeted about the sighting, Psaki issued a denial, calling the tweet "completely inaccurate" and said Kerry has been "working all day and on the phone dealing with the crisis in Egypt."

Also on Wednesday afternoon, the White House released a photo of the president and his national security team meeting in the situation Room. Kerry was not present in the photo, but his office said he did participate in the meeting via a secure phone line.

On Thursday night, CBS News obtained a photo of Kerry on his boat and sent it to the State Department, asking whether they still stand by their denial that Kerry was on a boat.

The response: "Yes."
here's the kicker...

You just KNOW he was wearing flip-flops...

Who cares... When you start calling out republicans for that bull**** I'll be more than happy to listen, but you won't.

Liberals don't have a problem when other liberals lie, only when it's a conservative. The proof is in this thread.

The question should be, why did the Obama Administration intentionally lie about something this trivial. If they lie about a little item like this, just what else are they willing to lie about? There is no trust in this government anymore when things like this are pointed out. I don't know why anyone would defend this.

I don't care about trivial lies or misrepresentations. If you will note, I called out liberals for the catty trivial stuff they threw at Mitt. The point is that this is trivial. If you focus on the trivial, as cnredd does, then you become just as trivial as your focus.
