Reporters Slam US For Refusing To Condemn Saudi-US Airstrike On Yemen School Bus In Live Briefing
Just as expected, State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert refused to condemn Thursday’s coalition airstrike on a school bus in Yemen, which left as many as 50 people dead and 63 injured — the vast majority of which were children.
As we reported previously, Saudi-US/UK coalition jets scored a direct hit on the school bus packed with children as it drove through a crowded market place in Dahyan, in the rebel-held north of Yemen.
During the State Department’s daily press briefing, Nauert was asked point blank by journalists, starting with the AP’s Matt Lee, whether the US condemns the attack.
The whole testy exchange on Yemen is worth watching, especially as Matt Lee lays out the case for direct US complicity in the attack on the bus packed with children from the start of his question: “The Saudis obviously are the ones who conducted this, but they do that with weapons supplied by the U.S., with training supplied by the U.S., and with targeting information, targeting data, supplied by the U.S. How can something like this happen?” he said. – Zerohedge

Had Russia and or Syria done this then the US would be screaming bloody murder. Because it was Saudi Arabia, the U.S. and the UK, complete silence.
Fifty people dead, mostly children. I thought that the American public cares about children. You know, children in cages? This shows you that the children in cages fury was politically motivated. It was never about the children. It was always about Trump. Another way to make Trump look bad, as if there needs to be another reason.
Did Canada condemn the attack? Is it not a human right not to be killed by bombs?
Governments lie. They lie ALL the time.
