Do you remember Iran Air Flight 655 being shot down by the U.S.? Probably not. That’s because the U.S. tried to cover it up and hide it. MSM certainly doesn’t talk about it. However, if you talked to an Iranian, they remember.
On July 3rd, 1988, U.S. Navy Captain Will Rogers III thought the airbus was a F-14 fighter jet and shot it down, resulting in the 7th deadliest air disaster. 266 people were killed, including 66 children. Simply because a Navy captain made a mistake.
The media doesn’t talk about it. According to slate.com:
After the 1988 incident, American officials told various lies and blamed the Iranian pilot. Not until eight years later did the U.S. government compensate the victims’ families, and even then expressed “deep regret,” not an apology.
Here’s the truly dismaying part of the story. On Aug. 19, 1988, nearly seven weeks after the event, the Pentagon issued a 53-page report on the incident. Though the text didn’t say so directly, it found that nearly all the initial details about the shoot-down—the “facts” that senior officials cited to put all the blame on Iran Air’s pilot—were wrong. And yet the August report still concluded that the captain and all the other Vincennes officers acted properly.
Just remember though, we are supposed to believe all the lies being told by the U.S. government so they can start another tax payer-funded war with Iran. Also the story that Venezuela is in a humanitarian crisis due to it’s leadership not the U.S. sanctions put in place to starve their citizens.
I don’t know about you but I think it’s time we hold our dishonest government accountable. End the lies. Love not war.
