A spokeswoman for the State Department, Morgan Ortagus, slammed CNN International anchor Becky Anderson who implied the United States lacked any allies in taking on Iran.
In response to Anderson alleging no international support for the death of Qassem Soleimani, Ortagus said: “With all due respect that is just another completely inaccurate observation.” She added “You could look at the E3 statement this morning that was put out by the Germans, the British, and the French.”
She continued: “We are incredibly confident in these public statements. Your audience should know and should go and read the E3 statement put out by the Germans, the French, and the British that contradict what you just said to me. It completely contradicts you.”
War Room co-host Raheem Kassam added:
“Reporter” Brits like @BeckyCNN really embarrass me.
They sneer at people like @statedeptspox *while* being very poorly informed.
I don’t sneer at America like Becky. The only way I gloat is with my dress sense.https://t.co/arReqroyBu
