Associated Press Blames Trump for Iran Shooting Down Ukrainian Plane

Some of the most nakedly shameless narrative twisting from the AP.

It starts right in the headline. “An Iranian general dies in U.S. attack, and innocents suffer”. A more accurate formulation would be, “Iran’s terror causes innocents to suffer.”

And if the Associated Press wants to localize this disaster somewhere, a more proper starting point would be Iran’s attack on our embassy in Baghdad. But somehow an attack on a US embassy isn’t the starting point, our retaliation for it is.

“All is well!” President Donald Trump tweeted Tuesday night, days after a U.S. drone strike killed Iran’s most powerful general, and Iran, after a barrage of missiles, had signaled it was stepping back from further escalation. But 27 seconds before Trump’s tweet, commercial flight trackers had lost contact with a Ukrainian International Airlines jet that had just taken off from Tehran’s main airport.

Trump’s tweet had nothing to do with what happened to the Ukranian plane. And we don’t even know for sure what happened to it.
