‘People Want to Know What’s True’: Megyn Kelly Presses State Dept. on Iraq
State Department Deputy Spokeswoman Marie Harf was on “The Kelly File” tonight after terrorists claimed control of four more Iraqi cities over the weekend.
Megyn Kelly asked Harf if the gains we have achieved in Iraq have slipped away under the Obama administration.
“This is a very different threat that we’re looking at today than we’ve seen before in Iraq,” Harf responded.
She also explained that the administration has been talking to the Iraqis and other leaders in the region for months about the threat of ISIS.
“There seems to be an inconsistency,” Kelly said, referencing that Obama downplayed the threat of ISIS back in January. “People want to know what’s true.”
Harf said ISIS has grown in strength and has continued to make gains over the past several months. Hear more on the crisis in Iraq in the video above.
Kelly also asked Harf about her controversial comments regarding the Bergdahl swap.
“Nobody knows what happened that night,” she had previously said of the night Bowe Bergdahl disappeared from his base. When Fox News’ Lucas Tomlinson said Bergdahl's squad mates probably did know what happened, Harf said, “I don’t think that that’s the case.”
