US State Department Spokesperson Loses Composure Under Heavy Questioning By Russia Today Reporter- Full 10 Minute Version

RT Reporter Gayane Chichakyan shows US reporters how real questioning is conducted and the proof of her effectiveness is shown by US State Department representative John Kirby losing his composure and insulting the reporter and the TV network she works for along with the country of Russia. Note how the State Department spokesperson continually dodges the question while the reporter stays on point. As she reiterates the main point of the question that wasn't answered John Kirby shows his frustration with the line of questioning and then resorts to insults and demagoguery. This is classic deflection technique. The reporter continues to remain professional and once again reiterates the question at hand. For a third time the question is dodged and the State Department spokesperson embarrasses the United States by exhibiting characteristics that are considered unprofessional in global diplomatic protocol. Simply put, his loss of compose and dodging of the question combined with resorting to insults provide a disservice to the US citizens that he represents.

An insufficient answer to the question is given by Kirby at the 5:55 mark in the video and is unsatisfactory due to the fact that the Iraqi government has stated on record that they do not welcome the Turkish troops on their territory. Link here:

The reporters question highlights the hypocrisy of the US government who have stated previously that sovereign nations have a right to keep other countries militarys outside of their territorial boundaries. During recent events in Turkey and Ukraine, the US has stated this position, however, the RT reporters question highlights the US State Department hypocrisy when it comes to Iraq. The US is talking out of both sides of its mouth when it comes to Iraqs sovereignty and also that of Syria and Yemen who are all being illegally invaded by other militarys and militants that have US backing and are killing innocent civilians on their sovereign territory. That is what is at the heart of the reporters question. It's unfortunate that US reporters do not dig as deep as the RT reporter. Where are THEIR hard questions about THEIR own governments nefarious actions?

It is also worth noting that Kirby states an outright lie when he says that "Turkey and Iraq are working out their differences so everyone else can focus on fighting IS — "which, by the way, the Russians aren't doing." This is factually incorrect. Russia has provided a 22 minute drone and satellite video presentation showing their massive bombardment of ISIS oil facilities and convoys proving that the US did not target ISIS or their oil facilities for the entire past year and that the US only commenced bombing ISIS's infrastructure after Russia started effectively destroying them. This exposure has angered the US and highlighted that they know NATO ally Turkey is profiting from ISIS oil sales, thereby highlighting that the US is unwilling to go after the head of the hydra when it comes to ISIS. Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States continue to get a free pass.

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S.-Russian tensions broke out in undiplomatic fashion in an unlikely place Thursday: the State Department briefing room.
What began with a series of tough, if suggestive, questions from a correspondent for Russian government-funded news ended with department spokesman John Kirby delivering an uncharacteristically severe indictment of Russian military activity in Syria and press conduct.

Kirby also unloaded on the RT television channel and its reporter, Gayane Nhichakyan.
