Obama admin says “file footage of ISIL convoys operating in broad daylight” is “inaccurate” days before huge ISIL convoy in Ramadi

Either the Obama administration is woefully ignorant of the facts on the ground, or it’s lying brazenly to the American people and the world, knowing that most people are too busy or indifferent to notice. Either way, it’s unconscionable. “Stop using ISIL footage, Obama administration asks networks,” by Michael Crowley and Hadas Gold, Politico, May 13, 2015:

Frustrated that coverage of the war against the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant isn’t reflecting reality on the ground, senior Obama administration officials are urging television networks to update their footage of the radical militant group.

Senior State Department and Pentagon officials have begun contacting television network reporters to ask them to stop using “B-roll” — stock footage that appears on screen while reporters and commentators talk — showing ISIL at the peak of its strength last summer.

“We are urging broadcasters to avoid using the familiar B-roll that we’ve all seen before, file footage of ISIL convoys operating in broad daylight, moving in large formations with guns out, looking to wreak havoc,” said Emily Horne, spokeswoman for retired Gen. John Allen, the State Department’s special envoy leading the international coalition against ISIL.

“It’s inaccurate — that’s no longer how ISIL moves,” Horne said. “A lot of that footage is from last summer before we began tactical strikes.”…

A more accurate image, said Col. Steven Warren, a Pentagon spokesman, would be “one Toyota speeding down the road by itself at night with its headlights off.”

Is that so? Here are some photos from the Islamic State’s celebration of the fall of Ramadi:Ramadi5

A picture is worth more than 10,000 lies told by this administration.

Dictator Obama's friends. Of course he would lie. 

the liars don't want the truth told so they either buy or intimidate the media to support them!!!!!!!!!!

There is no reason to believe one thing this White House or Obama has to say.  Or anyone working for Obama.  I am always amazed how they follow and obey like good dogs.  Does no one have any morals or pride any more.

Where did these other photos come from? They weren't in the Politico article. 

I imagine that the lapdog press will do everything Obama wants. They will probable show a toyota speeding with its lights off!'

So much the better to create Obama's propaganda that ISIS is not a big deal...

More lies from this administration, pictures do tell the truth

The minute this Administration came out with that I knew it was true. LIPS MOVING = LIE

Typical progressive-communist logic.  Destroy the evidence and the problem "disappears".  How has that worked lately?  If it wasn't for the success of the Tea Party movement, the Republicans would be in lockstep with him.

Everyone here comments about Odumbo in the WH but NO ONE IS DOING ANYTHING.  Words do not work, Americans have become so complacent, all they care about is themselves.  I care about myself, my family and fellow Americans and most important in order to survive the ideology of Odumbo I have to care more about the fate of this COUNTRY!!!!!!  Where do the rest of you stand???

why does the Admin remain calling them ISIL while everyone else knows them by ISIS?

If he thinks that Americans are believing him, he is mistaken. Many people who voted for the fool realize they made a VERY BIG MISTAKE. I do not believe one thing out of his mouth or anyone that works for him and who has drank the kool aid.

No one in his administration will ever say anything negative about their messiah. I think there have been too many people dropped on their heads as babies.

UNBELIEVABLE !!!!!

OK big mouth, show some bombing of the ISIS forces massing for attacks on major targets, rather than the trivial videos of bomb hitting empty buildings and one or two enemy troops.  Never have we seen any footage of large groups of ISIS troops and equipment, yet they do bring their forces and successfully overpower Iraqi held territory.

Obama is a sham on every issue.  His actions are a mirage, a PR action, only.  That is why all his "advisers" are former PR people!

“It’s an exciting evolution.”

CNN’s Anderson Cooper said during an interview with Univision anchor Jorge Ramos that he found the demographic decline of white people “exciting”.

“The idea that, you know, whites will not be the majority, I mean, that’s — it’s an exciting transformation of the country, it’s an exciting evolution and you know, progress of our country in many different ways,” said Cooper.

Ramos agreed that whites becoming a minority in America was inevitable and a positive development.

The Judge@V8POW

Anderson Cooper barely able to contain his excitement about Whites becoming a minority.

Not thrilled about being replaced in the country your ancestors founded: you're a "Supremacist"

Understand White People, you're already in a race war.

“There’s nothing really they can do against this incredible demographic revolution. And in 2044, everyone is going to be a minority,” he said.

The media has repeatedly asserted that even raising the “conspiracy theory” of “the great replacement” or the demographic decline of white people puts you on a par with mass shooters and terrorists.

However, it’s apparently completely fine to talk about the issue so long as you proclaim the demographic decline of whites to be a positive thing.
