State Dept. Calls for Restraint, But Doesn’t Know Name of Kidnapped American Boy

In Wednesday’s press briefing, US State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki called for restraint on all side, during the search for the three kidnapped boys.

MS. PSAKI: Well, Said, we’ve been in touch with both the Israelis and the Palestinians throughout the course of the last several days since these teenagers were kidnapped. We know this is a difficult time obviously on the ground. We’ve urged continued security cooperation between the Israelis and the Palestinians in the search for the kidnapped teenagers. We were encouraged by President Abbas’s strong statement to the Arab and Islamic foreign ministers today in Saudi Arabia. But – and certainly as the search continues and in our conversations, we urge both sides to exercise restraint and avoid the types of steps that could destabilize the situation. And that’s a message that we are conveying in all of our conversations as well.

After 6 days, she also finally admitted that one of the kidnapped boys is an American citizen.

MS. PSAKI: We do, yes. So we can confirm that one of the kidnapped was an American citizen.

But after 6 days, Psaki doesn’t actually know his name.

QUESTION: Which one? MS. PSAKI: I believe his name has been reported. I don’t have it in front of me right now.

The State Department still believes that paying the PA, which then pays Hamas had no influence in Hamas’s decisions (such as pulling their financial chestnuts out of the fire).

QUESTION: But there’s – numerous Israeli officials have said that the U.S. decision to work with and continue to fund the Palestinian government, the new unity government, is – contributes – contributed to this incident with the three – is it – am I correct in thinking that you still would reject such an allegation?

MS. PSAKI: Yes, that is correct.

Keep that certainty of hers in mind, while recalling that Ms. Psaki couldn’t even bother to learn the name of the kidnapped American boy.

It’s Naftali Frenkel.

  5. Kari Anne says:

    He’s not a deserter, so he ranks even further down this Administration’s line of concern for it’s citizens. Hell, we have a Marine in a Mexican prison, so the life of a minor American citizen just doesn’t matter to them.

  6. how did she land this spokesperson job, anyway?

  7. I call her a schmuck

  8. Our American government currently does not consider the welfare of Jews or the Jewish state high on its agenda of priorities. High on the agenda is improving the relationship with Iran, Helping the Palestine Unity Government( Including Hamas ), and turning Iraq over to radical Islam,whether this is to Al Quida or Iran. It doesn't matter what the state dept says. It is usually distortions and lies for public consumption and bears little relation to reality.or the behavior of the US government.

  9. God, she’s stupid.

  10. Typical moronic State Dept. blather with Kerry Chief Blatherer in charge.

  25. Marsha Roth says:

    By releasing the Taliban 5, Obama has unleashed the worst possible terrorists on the world! We can all say what an idiot he is but I think the real action should be Criminal charges against Obama! G-d forbid an attack happens again on American soil, which will surely be worse than 911 and attacks all over the world, Obama should go on Trial for crimes against humanity! He knew what he was doing when he released the Taliban 5! It was all political & backfired. Now, he places the entire world at greater risk than ever before! He is a criminal!

  26. George Riesz says:

  30. John Mark says:

    The three-finger salute is inciting and disgusting to all decent people in the world. Only an armchair statesmen would be indifferent to the agony of others and calling the shots from the comfort of their luxurious living rooms thousands of miles away from danger. Newsflash America, it is Israel whom G-d will one day defend as the apple of his eye – not you…Think about it….You justify the wicked, protect and provide them the tools for more injustice when you should be opposing THEM – not ISRAEL. Shalom.

    They always pick dumb people to speak for them

  43. The state department is known for their anti-semitism. Nothing new here.

  44. Doesn’t really matter where they’re from and O doesn’t really care about American citizens or he would not have run for office.

  45. What is more important is the call for restraint.
    May PA heed the call and exert its efforts to free
    the hostages to show goodwill and sincerity.

  46. That’s not true. America sided with the Israelites in its war ventures.
    America is as of now pro peace in Holy Land by bringing PA to the
    peace process.

  47. He can’t be bothered with a U.S. Marine in a Mexican jail… so he does not care about an American-Jewish boy… all he cares about are illegal children, traitors and releasing Taliban terrorists

  48. U can’t fix stupid!

  49. I did not see restraint when they let 5 terrorist free to free a muslim apologist.
