MGINSD saidIt'll be interesting to see just how much coverage - that means investigation and reporting, folks - this story gets from the US MSM. If false, it should be easy to rebut; if not, then there's another nail in Obama's coffin. Interesting how he may view the expanse of US airspace overseas.
Just how do you prove the negative here?
Easy, and this isn't a case of "proving a negative." If research fails to confirm the story, or uncovers only a series of consistent denials, especially if from a wide range of reputable and informed sources on all sides of the issue - that IS how a proper investigation is conducted, after all - then it's a pretty safe bet that it's false. OTOH, ... well, you know the rest.
So the onus is on the accused? Do you always believe this?
What? I'll be gracious and say I don't understand your point. Meanwhile, you do me the favor of carefully [re?]reading what I posted.
Why should I as the reader of the article in the OP have to do the research you suggest? Seems to me that the writer has already done the research, or should have, but the closest thing he could come up with as a confirmable source was Brzezinski whose quote was from 2009.
From the link in the Israel National News piece:
"Brzezinski was a top candidate to become an official advisor to President Obama, but he was downgraded after Republican and pro-Israel Democratic charges during the campaign that Brzezinski’s anti-Israel attitude would damage Obama at the polls.
"President Obama’s advisors have emphasized that the former national security advisor is not playing any unofficial role as advisor to the White House."http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/133515
So a former top candidate for official advisor, but didn't get the post, tells Jimmy Carter in 2009 that Obama should shoot down Israeli planes if they attack Iran, and this is the only evidence in the article that Obama really did threaten Israel in 2014. In an argument burden of proof is on the person making the affirmative statement. The writer of this article does not do this.
By your standard, it's a pretty safe bet this story is false.
