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!

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
