Can you please explain how that is not a lie? Here I'll explain to you how it is a lie:
Will 34 warships accompany Obama to India? - The Rumor Doctor - Stripes
Now you explain how it's not a lie. Thanks!Sure enough, there are not 34 ships – and there isn’t an aircraft carrier – supporting the president’s trip, said a defense official, who declined to provide any information on security measures for presidential trips.
Pentagon press secretary Geoff Morrell called the notion of sending so many warships to protect the president “comical.”
“I will take the liberty this time of dismissing as absolutely absurd this notion that somehow we were deploying 10 percent of the Navy -- some 34 ships and an aircraft carrier -- in support of the president's trip to Asia,” Morrell told reporters on Thursday.
Morrell would not talk about the president’s security arrangements other than to say “nothing close” to the armada reported in the Indian press is involved.
