State Department: We Investigated That Eight-Minute Deletion In the Record Where James Rosen Got Jen Psaki to Admit That Sometimes the Administration Lies About Foreign Policy, And We Can Now Confidently Name the Party Responsible: A "Glitch"

Yes, of course.

I was just about to say, "Have you looked into the possibility of a convenient, non-human, no-fault-assignable random glitch?"

But of course you did, dears! Of course you did.

The State Department said Tuesday that a "glitch" caused eight minutes of video from a 2013 press briefing to be deleted on its website and YouTube channel. In the missing segment, then State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki seemed to admit that the government lied about when the Iran nuclear talks began, in answer to a question from Fox News' James Rosen. The original unedited video reappeared on the State Department website Tuesday morning after Rosen drew attention to its disappearance.

"There was a glitch in the State Department video," spokeswoman Elizabeth Trudeau told dubious reporters yesterday to explain the removal of Psaki's admission.

James Rosen expressed skepticism about the "glitch" excuse Wednesday afternoon on "The Five."

"It's just stunning to me that they think they could get away with this deletion," he said. "They deleted it not only on their website where they archive all the videos from their briefings, but on the State Department YouTube channel as well." As for the timing of the sleight of hand, Rosen said that from what he was able to determine, "this was actually the way the briefing was put up three years ago."

In related news, the Obama Administration has vowed to bring the glitch responsible for the deaths of Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty to justice, as well as any YouTube videos that might have conspired with the glitch.
