While Wearing Hamas Green, State Department Spokesman Avoids Offending Hamas

As State Department spokesman Jen Psaki appeared to be going out of her way to avoid implicating Hamas in an act of terrorism, she was coincidentally dressed in a shade of green reminiscent of Hamas’ color. When asked by AP reporter Matt Lee about reports that the terrorist leanings of a 14 year-old Palestinian-American boy named Orwa Hammad, Psaki pleaded ignorance. Hammad was reportedly hurling molotov cocktails before being killed by Israeli Defense Forces (IDF); Psaki played dumb.

Based on her previous performances, it means the reports are correct. Had they not been, Psaki would have had no trouble setting the record straight. For a State Department spokesman not to know the details surrounding the death of a Palestinian-American boy in the West Bank that made international news is ridiculous.

As she appeared to be hopelessly hoping that everyone would buy her ignorance, Lee delivered a roundhouse kick with a follow-up, in which he asked Psaki to respond to reports that a Hamas headband was on Hammad’s head during his funeral. Psaki, who was visibly agitated at the prospect of it being blatantly obvious her claims of ignorance equated to a tacit admission that the reports were correct, proceeded to plead ignorance… again.

On top of all that, Psaki says the kid was not a terrorist:
