Mass. Gov. Lied About VideoSubmitted by TommyPaine on Mon, 04/22/2013 - 12:10
"It does seem to be pretty clear that this suspect took the backpack off, put it down, did not react when the first explosion went off and then moved away from the backpack in time for the second explosion," [Gov.] Patrick said. "It’s pretty clear about his involvement and pretty chilling, frankly."
Only one problem: Gov. Patrick NEVER SAW THE VIDEO. He was spoon-fed this info from some unnamed, unseen FBI agent. He made the statement as a true fact, making it seem like he had personally seen the video when he had not.
How many other politicians make claims that sound like they have personal, first hand knowledge when in fact they do not and are only regurgitating what some unseen person has told them?
THIS is why we must see EVIDENCE when anyone in government or media make a claim of "fact."
