Marie Harf accidentally says something true

Answering a question posed by AP reporter Matt Lee regarding NATO, the Ukraine, and Russia, Marie Harf made the case for protecting ourselves and our allies when another country takes aggressive action against them.

“…countries taking steps to protect themselves, their partners, and their territories against someone who is sending arms and troops and men over the border into another country…No one’s going to sit by and not stand up for our principals and say go ahead Russia, we’re not going to take any steps to protect ourselves….”

Hmm. That’s interesting.

Strange how that rule doesn’t seem to apply to Israel, for example.
