US Power Calls Putin Patron of Assad, Takes 3 Questions from Jarba's Hosts

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, September 5 -- The UN Security Council stakeout was jammed when US Ambassador Samantha Power came to say that Russia has blocked the Council and military action against Syria is legitimate, there was a simple question not answered or allowed: what about the UN Report?

  Many countries say, wait and see the UN report. Other say, act only through the Security Council. But the UN report question was neither answered nor allowed.

  The US Mission choose three questions: from CBS, Al-Arabiya and Reuters. And these three did not ask about the UN report. In fact, all three questioners selected by the US Mission are Executive Committee members of the UN Correspondents Association, which hosted Saudi-funded Syria rebel boss Jarba for a faux "UN briefing" in July.

  So, what about the UN report?

After Power and her entourage had left, Inner City Press asked a Russian Mission diplomat of the invitation to the US Mission. Yes, this morning, he said.

  Inner City Press asked, Were you convinced by the evidence?

  No, he said.

So what about the UN report? Watch this site.

Footnote: confined to a footnote by this above-described three question stakeout, nothing was said about Sudan and South Sudan (a more deadly conflict), and the President of the Security Council, Gary Quinlan, did not come to do a stakeout about those consultations and those on Guinea-Bissau. Much respect to the UN.
