BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 A.M.) – The U.S. State Department Spokesperson Morgan Ortagus slammed the Iranian government to reporters on Thursday after she was asked about their recent delivery of oil to Syria.

“I think the importance here to our friends around the world in the international community is to note that once again you have been lied to and misled by the Iranian regime,” Ortagus told reporters.

In regards to the Adrian Darya 1’s (formerly Grace 1) departure from Gibraltar in mid-August, Ortagus said Iran blatantly lied about the ship’s destination in order to deliver the oil to the Syrian coast.

“The Iranian regime broke its word and appears intent on fueling the Assad regime’s brutality against the Syrian people, who continue to face widespread violence, death and destruction,” Ortagus stated.

“This fits into the web of lies perpetrated by the Iranian regime for 40 years,” she said.

“Their deception and broken promises are not just aimed at the international community but the Iranian people, too,” she added.

Iran sending oil to Syria is NONE of the United States’ business.

Ok. Let us call for the western coalition based in Syria to stop stealing Syria’s oil to begin with.

They learnt that art from the Americans who now appear upset that someone else tells them one thing and does another. Too bad the oil made it . America has no right to tell Iran who it can and can’t sell its oil too. How about Iran tell America it can’t sell arms too Israel or Saudi Arabia in interest of world peace..

Nope. Anglos learnt deception from Islam.
And you can’t beat the raffidahs when it comes to taqiyya, kitman, etc.

Wrong : Quran talks about deception strategies and wasn’t it inspired by Allah who Quran itself names “the greatest of deceivers”?

And just who gave the U.S. government the right to stop oil deliveries to Syria? Or even to make it it’s business to care?

It’s not a question of USA speaking about it : The Iranian government just has shown that its parole has no worth to… the Europeans which now will consider that if Iran lies for an oil tanker, they will tell lies for anything linked to nuclear, for terrorism, etc.
From the POV of European public opinion, Iran is grilled…

Trump said the US was pulling all troops out of Syria. The only thing that has happened is those troop numbers have increased. So who tells LIES.. Take off the sunglasses so you can see.
