Marie Harf: ‘We are not going to telegraph our plans, period’
We posted yesterday on the “snippy” exchange between deputy spokesperson for the State Department, Marie Harf and Daily Beast reporter Josh Rogin, but Twitter wasn’t done commenting on the exchange.
As this administration has embraced telegraphing U.S. plans in advance — i.e., withdraw dates from Iraq and Afghanistan — users were a little confused by Harf’s strong statement that, “we are not going to telegraph our plans, period.”
And here are some of the responses calling her out on this “telegraph” nonsense:

Really?—> @marieharf Your exalted leader has no problem telling everyone what we 'won't be doing. What's the difference?

Oh, and about Harf ending her declaration with “period”? Remember what happened the last time:

Good question, Ryan, good question.
