The State Department has been insisting for months that footage of a 2013 press briefing on the Iran nuclear deal was wiped out by a “technical glitch.” On Wednesday, State Dept. spokesman John Kirby admitted the glitch excuse was untrue, and the footage was deliberately deleted, but the State Dept. allegedly doesn’t know who did it or why.

Jen Psaki, Obama Backed Harry Reid’s Lie About Romney

Now that Harry Reid has admitted he was lying about Mitt Romney failing to pay taxes in order to help Barack Obama win re-election, the media are pretending to be shocked. But they were complicit, too, giving Reid’s claim more air time than it possibly deserved. And the Obama campaign backed Reid’s efforts, pushing his lies in their own words.

Psaki and Harf: The Clueless, Defending the Hopeless

The State Department spokesperson has the task of defending the president’s foreign policy more often than any other government official. During President Barack Obama’s first term, that unenviable task fell to the opaque Victoria Nuland, whose redeeming feature was that there was a spine behind the smokescreen.
