Jay Carney is really Baghdad Bob.
God: Thou shalt not bear false witness.
Allah: Lie as much as you want, as long as it’s to infidels.

I believe that Israel’s government would only have commented if the story were true. I also understand why Iran denied it. The question is how does it advance Obama’s agenda to have Carney deny it? I am not getting that.
Zero doesn’t have all his minions in power and fully stocked with weapons just yet so hes holding back.
I am not getting that.
No need for skyrocketing oil prices just when the left is trying to forcefeed us gungrabbing.
