Shocker: US Govt Can't Confirm Reports of Russian Mobile Crematoriums in Ukraine

But now that the story's out, who cares if it's "actually" true or not?

This is lovely. Now that Bloomberg has breathed life into the "Russia is roasting dead soldiers in Ukraine" Twitter rumor, the U.S. State Department has decided to weigh in

The US State Department cannot confirm media reports alleging that Russia has delivered mobile crematoriums to Ukraine, US State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf told CNN on Wednesday. However, she continued to claim that Russia was trying to hide its presence in Ukraine.

This is classic State Department logic. "We can't confirm this outrageous story, but it certainly supports our theory, which we also can't confirm."

It really is unfair. How can the U.S. prove that Russia is hiding an army in Ukraine, if Russia is hiding an army in Ukraine? It's a paradox! Or something.
