Top US officials act silly when asked about Saudi bombing of Yemen

The US administration shows no interest in how US allies handle issues related to human rights. Mark Krieger write in an article for Liberty Blitzkrieg that top US officials either lie or act silly when asked about the conflict of Saudi Arabia and Yemen. Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney smiled and repeatedly said, "Nice to see you," when Krueger asked him he had any concerns about the Saudi Arabian-led bombing campaign in Yemen.

Romney repeated this remark several times, instead of giving a clear answer to the question, thus prompting the journalist wonder whether it was a joke or not, EntryNews.com reports. 

US Senator John McCain has spoken a lot about Yemen lately, but his words do not seem to match the reality. 

"They may be bombing civilians, which is actually not true," McCain said, when asked about civilian casualties in Yemen.

The journalist asked McCain whether civilians were not dying in Yemen, to which McCain replied: 

"No, they're not," the senator replied. "Oh, I'm sure civilians die in war. Not nearly as many as the Houthis have executed," McCain continued, referring to the Shiite militia waging an insurgency against the Sunni government in Yemen.

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott has recently demonstrated this bizarre behavior with a journalist as well (see video below).
