Kirby: ‘Too Soon to Tell’ Whether Iranian Government Responsible for Embassy Attack (The Washington Free Beacon)

State Department spokesman John Kirby could not say Monday whether the Iranian government was at fault for recent attacks on the Saudi embassy in Iran.

When AP reporter Matt Lee asked Kirby whether the U.S. held the Iranian government responsible for the ransacking, Kirby said that it was too soon to judge.

 “I think it’s too soon to tell right now,” Kirby said. “I mean, it just happened. It’s difficult with attacks like this of a violent nature to determine who exactly and precisely is at fault certainly in the hours afterward.”
