A spirited exchange between Associated Press reporter Matthew Lee and spokesperson Victoria Nuland marked the U.S. State Department’s daily briefing Monday on the continued violence between Israel and Hamas. Lee slammed Nuland for their silence on Israel in what the Administration has labeled “quiet diplomacy.” Lee concluded, “But you won’t stick up for your ally Israel when the Turks, another one of your allies, say that they’re engaged in terrorism in Gaza…” The exchange goes on for nearly three minutes, while Nuland is left defenseless against the charges of silence from the press pool.

    Go Matt Go!.. We need more reporters like him.
    hold these people accountable.
    Victoria Nuland is in way over her head..
    She needs to realize that..by not making a choice can be a dangerous choice. When we decide not to choose, we decide to give our personal power away. which is what has happened here.

    If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.

    Inaction is the same as action in the effect it causes.

    Not saying anything is paramount to saying you’re okay with what is happening.

    Why do we have people in this admin who don’t understand basic concepts that are taught to 10 yr olds?

    Did I just answer my own question……?
