Trust the New York Times & It’s Stable of Repeated Liars

Jason Ditz at Antiwar.com debunks the recent article by Michael Gordon at the NYT about the Russians violating a treaty with a 2008 cruise missile test:

“The missile tests took place in 2008, and at the time the Bush Administration did not make them an issue. It was only in 2014, when the Obama Administration was ratcheting up tensions with Russia, that the tests were raised as a “possible violation.” Media outlets took the reclassification of the missile by the Pentagon, removing their “experimental” label, to claim they must be deployed now, and that must be a violation too.”

So, the United States reclassifies a missile type, and now the Russians violate a treaty. Not only does Michael Gordon know this, he admits it in the bottom of the article. Of course, the article is posted, and is immediately shared and retweeted because it fits the Russia hysteria narrative.

This is the same Michael Gordon that somehow still has a job after helping to lie the US in war in Iraq in 2002-2003, by posting the same type of half-ass journalism.
