Marie Harf; the ballsiest bullshitter at the State Department since Hilary Clinton

Jen Psaki's supposed understudy at State is showing chops that overshadow her mentor.

Check out her performance after Turkey's lame-duck Erdogan suggested that the US was stirring up protests in Egypt, Turkey and Ukraine.

“We are not behind any of the legitimate, democratic protests we’ve seen in any of those countries. So let’s be very clear that this is not about what the U.S. is doing, because we’re not doing anything. This is an internal Turkish matter. That’s where they need to focus,” U.S. State Department Deputy Spokesperson Marie Harf said during a daily press briefing on April 30.

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan compared protests in Turkey, Egypt and Ukraineduring an interview with PBS’s Charlie Rose on April 28, claiming that the “same groups” from the U.S. were responsible for the unrest in those countries. 

Harf, however, said the claims were “ridiculous” and “not borne out by the facts on the ground.

Meanwhile, ten minutes with google turns up the following from the 2013 annual report of the National Endowment for Democracy, a fake NGO funded by the State Department which has spent billions stirring up protests anywhere the US doesn't like the government;

Number of anti-government groups funded in Turkey, 6.

In pre-coup Egypt, 22.

In Ukraine, a whopping 56!

That's a lot of "pro-democracy" anti-government activism being funded out of Washington, and remember, the NED is far from being the only conduit of US money.

Do you think Erdogan has a point?
