The New York Times (NYT) called a pro-Iran militia that attacked the U.S. embassy in Baghdad, Iraq on Tuesday a group of “mourners” in a complete misrepresentation of the violent horde.
“Hundreds of Iraqi mourners tried to storm the United States Embassy in Baghdad, shouting ‘Down, down USA!,’ in response to deadly American airstrikes this week that killed 25 fighters,” the NYT tweeted.

“Mourners.” It’s not hard to see which side the New York Times sympathizes with here https://t.co/kjcPW9XTd7

The assault on the embassy comes in response to recent U.S. airstrikes targeting Iran-backed militants in Iraq and Syria who killed a U.S. military contractor last week.
The violent anti-American terrorists chanted “No, no to America, no, no to Israel,” while storming the building and setting it on fire.

Kata’ib Hezbollah, a group behind the attack, is a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO), proving the assault is a terrorist act and that individuals involved are not “mourners” but enemy combatants.
Kata’ib Hezbollah is a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) and the attack should be treated as a terrorist attack and not a bunch of “protesters” getting out of controlhttps://t.co/do8GT83AKX https://t.co/ypsbg3zmoB

Suspiciously, one of the men who took part in the attack, Hadi al-Amiri, visited with President Obama at The White House in 2011.
Did you know Badr Corps chief Hadi Ameri, who led today’s raid on the US Embassy in Iraq, was once invited to the @WhiteHouse by @BarackObama?
FYI: Ameri & the Badr Corps get their salary & orders from Iran’s dictator Ali Khamenei.

Why is the New York Times covering for a group of America-hating terrorists?
