Transparency, Iran deal-style! Mysterious video editing gremlin roaming halls at the State Dept.

Earlier this year, Obama adviser Ben Rhodes admitted in a New York Times magazine profile that the White House used the media to peddle lies about the Iran deal in order to win public support for letting a regime that leads chants “death to America and Israel” tinker with nukes.

The lies have gone so deep that attempts have been made to erase from the record those times the Kerry-led State Department accidentally told the truth about the Iran deal, as spokesman fessed up to after being cornered:

The State Department, in a stunning admission, acknowledged Wednesday that an official intentionally deleted several minutes of video footage from a 2013 press briefing, where a top spokeswoman seemed to acknowledge misleading the press over the Iran nuclear deal.

“There was a deliberate request [to delete the footage] – this wasn’t a technical glitch,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said Wednesday, in admitting that an unidentified official had a video editor “excise” the segment.

The State Department had faced questions earlier this year over the block of missing tape from a December 2013 briefing. At that briefing, then-spokeswoman Jen Psaki was asked by Fox News’ James Rosen about an earlier claim that no direct, secret talks were underway between the U.S. and Iran – when, in fact, they were.

Last month, after an edit was spotted on the tape, the State Department blamed a “glitch.”

All together now: MOST TRANSPARENT ADMINISTRATION IN HISTORY!

Here’s my favorite part: “A specific request was made to excise that portion of the briefing. We do not know who made the request to edit the video, or why it was made.”

There’s a rogue video editing gremlin on the loose in the State Department, and nobody knows its identity!

It’s a total mystery!
