What planet are they on? Obama's State Department claims ‘peace’ in Syria was a success in 2015
The State Department put the Syrian peace process on the spin cycle this weak as it counted 'bringing peace, security' to the country among its successes in 2015.
The department's top spokesman, John Kirby, made the claim in a blog post on State's site that his deputy then declared 'truthful' in a briefing with reporters.
'The operative word there is bringing, not brought,' said Mark Toner, a deputy spokesman for State. 'So we’re bringing peace and security to Syria. I think that is a truthful claim.'
He added: There has been significant process, we believe, in the past year on both fronts.'
