Senior US official reduced to complete silence when asked about terrorist state Saudi Arabia


When ideology is your guide, you are bound to get lost.

It is just too good to be true, and you simply cannot make this stuff up. A senior US foreign affairs official literally did not know what to say when he was asked about why the United States is in cahoots with terrorist state Saudi Arabia while at the same time lambasting Iran as a terrorist cell. Check this out:

Virtually no Zionist outlet would even remotely deny the fact that Saudi Arabia is an accomplice in perpetuating terrorist crimes in the Middle East. In fact, it has been thoroughly reported that Saudi Arabia and ISIS are sleeping in the same bed and drinking the same ideological Kool-Aid.[1] But, as we saw in the video, the US official wants us all to believe that Iran is actually the bad kid on the block!

The US official certainly did not learn that Iran is bad from scholarly sources and from serious diplomatic resolutions that have been going on since the past decade.[2] He obviously learned that from the Israeli regime, which has ontologically denounced Iran as the number one state-sponsored terrorism in the Middle East. He also could have taken his cues from people like Robert Spencer, who magically and incoherently posit claims such as “Iran’s ambition” is to “conquer the world for Islam.”[3]

Spencer is actually one of the most annoying Neocon puppets around, and he certainly has been making his living positing colossal hoaxes, categorical lies and complete fabrications.

In any event, the US can no longer hide behind the Zionist mask that Iran is a terrorist state and that Saudi Arabia is friend and ally. By 2009, King Abdullah and Saudi Aramco had already spent more than $200 million at major American and European universities such as Stanford, Cornell, Texas A&M, University of California Berkley, CalTech, Georgia Tech, Peking, and Oxford on technology research in order to make Saudi oil last longer, since it was indicated that the oil was expected to run dry in fifty years.[4]

Saudi Arabia has also admitted that they supported terrorist rebels in Syria.[5] But for years, both the New York Times and the Washington Post knew about the CIA’s drone base in Saudi Arabia and never told the American people.[6] Bahrain, the small island off the coast of Saudi Arabia, also has methodically and brutally tortured its own citizens.[7] And the US supported all of that by arming the regime.[8]

More importantly, Saudi Arabia has killed Yemeni children in their classroom through air strikes.[9] No US president has ever challenged the Saudis for this morally repugnant act. Now they are telling us that Iran needs to be expunged?
