DNC Displays Turkish, Not American, Fighter Jets
This stuff you just can’t make up.
Not only did the Democratic National Convention show off Russian warships instead of American ones, they put Turkish fighter jets on display instead of Americans. As if the first mistake wasn’t enough, this adds insult to injury.
That huge image, visible in the Time Warner Cable Arena during speeches by Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry and retired Admiral John B. Nathman, also depicted a synchronized formation of jet aircraft that convention-goers assumed were American fighter planes.
But the F-5 fighter planes in the photo are part of the air force of Turkey, a nation whose government is now jailing journalists and establishing Islam as a state religion.
Brad Woodhouse, a spokesman for the Democratic National Committee, did not respond when the The Daily Caller asked why the convention planners displayed Turkish-flown aircraft alongside Russian warships while seeking support from the American military community.
On Sept. 12, Democrats apologized for using the picture of Soviet-era, Russian-operated ships after the slip up was first reported by the Navy Times. The Navy Times also received a tip that the planes depicted may have been from the Turkish Air Force.
I hope the DNC apologizes again, just for the fun of it.
Read the whole embarrassment here.
