Since the bombing of the Doctors without Borders hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan by U.S. forces, the United States government has actually had the gall to blame Russia for striking six hospitals in Syria. It only gets worse when you realize that the U.S. government tried nearly every trick in the book to dodge any responsibility for the tragedy which left 22 people dead. The U.S. has changed their story at least four times, refusing to accept responsibility at first, and later claiming that the hospital was “mistakenly struck” by U.S. forces, then saying that the hospital was hit because Taliban fighters were firing guns from the hospital, and Afghan forces had requested the strike after being engaged in a “tenacious fight” for the city.

The outrage that resulted around the world over the bombing of the hospital must have given some eager young PR intern at the U.S. State Department the inspiration to come up with an even worse atrocity – bombing six hospitals! By the Russians!
Reuters: The United States has “operational information” that leads U.S. officials to believe Russian military aircraft hit a hospital while carrying out bombing raids in Syria, the State Department said on Thursday. Since the start of the Russian bombing campaign on Sept. 30, various reports from media and civilian groups have charged that Russian warplanes have hit hospitals with their air strikes.

As can be seen in the cringeworthy, deeply embarrassing videos below, the “operational information” comes, as usual, from “Syrian NGOs on the ground” and “open source reporting” – which means they still get their information from the usual State Department sources: George Soros-funded NGOs like the White Helmets, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (a man who lives in Coventry, England), Bellingcat and the Brown Moses Blog (unemployed office worker Eliot Higgins), and of course open source reporting – the Internet.
In other words, when people ask the U.S. State Department how they know that Russia bombed six hospitals in Syria, the answer is – we read it on the Internet.

RT Grills US State Dept over claims Russia airstrike hit a hospital in Syria:
Elizabeth Trudeau (Director, Office of Press Relations. U.S. Department of State), the latest in a long line of U.S. State Department spokespersons with the unenviable job of explaining American foreign policy, refused to give any details on the locations of hospitals in Syria allegedly bombed by Russia. This is due to the fact that these hospitals never existed.
As Stuart Hooper of 21st Century Wire reports, five of the six Syrian hospitals that the U.S. claims were hit by Russia do not exist, and the sixth hospital (the one that actually exists) is still standing and shows no signs of being hit or attacked in any way.
