State Department Confirms Authenticity Of Intercepted Ukraine Phone Call: Accuses Russia Of Dirty Tricks

Tyler Durden's picture

If there was any doubt whether the intercepted "Fuck the EU" phone call between Assistant Secretary of State Nuland and the US Ambassador to the Ukraine Pyatt was authentic, it can now be laid to rest: in an earlier response to questions from reporters, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki did not dispute authenticity of recording and essentially confirmed it was real "I didn’t say it was inauthentic."

However, in the tried and true fashion of assigning blame elsewhere, the world learned that it was really all Russia's fault and the released intercept was a "new low of Russian tradecraft." Psaki added that there are moments "in every diplomatic relationship" when you disagree, Psaki says. But the absolute punchline: "It’s concerning that private conversation was recorded."

Perhaps maybe the NSA can opine on the concernability of a private conversation being recorded.

Then again in a world in which only the NSA is allowed to record every single private conversation, one can easily see why the State Dept thought it was safe to discuss its state subordination strategy over what appears to have been an unencrypted landline. At least the CIA used to communicate by encrypted redlines.

Finally, while Russian "tradecraft" may have hit a new low, so did US reputation and standing abroad, however offset by the humiliation and embarrassment of US foreign policymakers which has never been higher.

e.g. It's OK if the U.S. does something.  It's NOT OK if Russia or someone else does the same thing.

Is it just my imagination or does Putin seem to be running circles around our finger-pointer in Chief?

Look, I hate Obumers policies as much as the next guy, but I fail to see how someone saying Fuck the EU in a private phone call is a big deal.

I say Fuck the EU from time to time because Europeans are a bunch of socialists and keep giving the left in the US ideas. So I do support our foreign service agents taking a skeptical view on the EU, it shows that at least some people in government have somewhat of a clue.

There are billions of people who just came to the very basic realization that the NSA isn't the only intelligence agency with intercept powers in town.

NSA, Chinese, Russians.  We know the NSA had the recording, and we think the Chinese and/or Russians might have had it.

Ah, but you do that in the capacity of a private citizen. Imagine Obama getting caught on an open mike saying "Fuck the Republican Party, I'm going to tell Reid to ..." I am sure that he says something like that in private. Getting caught at it would be a major faux pas.

2014, the year of de-Americanization of the world.

Moscows secret society and Beijings neopolitiks have abandoned communism and are seizing world power via sophisticated financial warfare. They have been at it since before the Russian default (which merely wiped their slate clean).

They now have all the bonds and the gold and the land and the people.

China is already the biggest economy in the world, the Yuan peg merely hides this fact.

We in the West are living an extremely precarious existence.

hardly a nation vs nation issue.  rather, a global problem of a conspiracy to take over all governments from the inside.  Using the power of the printing press to buy up all media and the politicians.  If anything, Beinjing and Russia are opposing the NWO psychopaths.

Russia opposing ?  Perhaps.  China ?  Maybe . . . and maybe they are part of it and have made a deal.

I wouldnt be too anxious to pin angel wings on any of these psychopaths, however.

They're all basically predators and parasites on the rest of humanity.



Johnny Cocknballs's picture

You're right.  And it's all hidden in plain site.

Nuland says fuvk the EU to our very curious ambassador to Ukraine, meaning its not about the EU, but about people like herself and her husband having power.


The two opp leaders she mentions are like her.


And guess who is running ukraine's central bank and largest private bank.


And people are just absolutely brainwashed... they can't see what should be obvious.


It's heartbreaking.

Look at the roots. She ain't no redhead. It's a stale dye job. She could benefit from color and wardrobe and makeup advice. Nice features, though. But the brazen duplicity tells the rest of the story: a natural born liar. Men of conscience are hors d'oeuvres.

A senior adviser to Russian President Vladimir Putin has accused the US of meddling in Ukraine, in breach of a 1994 agreement over non-intervention.

Sergei Glazyev said the US was spending $20m (£12.3m; 14.8m euros) a week on Ukrainian opposition groups, supplying "rebels" with arms among other things.

Accusing the US of ignoring the Memorandum on Security Assurances, he suggested Moscow could also intervene.


Proxy WAR!  And did Congress authorize arming rebels?




PS you play checkers like a retard.  In Russia a retard is a retard.
