U.S. government. officials acknowledge the information about jet shot down by Syria last month but have no purpose of informing the press in accordance with U.S. State Department officials.
“Those in the American government needing to acknowledge the information “But we’ll make no statements about the issues in question.”
Refusing to explain why a Pentagon official allow fluid of rumors to the Wall Street Journal claiming that the jet was over Syrian waters when it was downed, the nameless official stated the details which were mattered very little to the American government.
“Whether the jet was shot over Syrian territory or over international waters, or what it was shot with, what difference does it make? What matters to us is that it was shot down,” the official stated.
“Turkey thought the louder its statements were, the more believable they’d be,” the official stated. “I estimate that why the prime minister made those statements. It is like an American shouting out to someone who does not speak English. We, however, won’t tell anything on the issue.”
Turkey and United States. are “90 percent” on the same page on the crisis in Syria, the official told, quoting Turkey’s “more interventionist” attitude as a possible difference between the countries’ views.
Several other NATO countries also have reservations about intervening, the official told without naming any specific members.
