Jay Carney, The Press Secretary of Barack Obama the Most Knowledgeable Jewish President Ever Unable to Identify Capital of Israel … Other Difficult Questions Like White House Leaks
This is startling …
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney refused to answer the press corps question regarding what the Obama Administration considered the capital of Israel, Tel Aviv or Jerusalem? Stunning, simply stunning that Carney could not provide an answer other than out position has not changed. When confronted with what the position was, he responded, you know what our position is. Some angered members of the press shouted back, if we knew, we wouldn’t be asking the question. The back and forth diatribe between Carney and the press can be seen HERE.
Carney would not say whether President Obama believe it’s Tel Aviv or Jerusalem. For nearly a minute, in response to repeated questioning, Carney only says that “our position hasn’t changed” and that he hasn’t gotten that question in a while.
How is it that the press secretary of the most knowledgeable President of Judaism not know the capital of Israel? More to the point, why is is he unwilling to say it? What would one expect from the Obama Administration that has been so cold to Israel?
As Powerline stated, the capital question of Israel may not have been his most difficult of the day. He twisted and turned trying to answer with a non-answer.
House was involved in the torrent of leaks of classified information obviously emanating in part from high administration officials.
