The new Judith Miller at THE NEW YORK TIMES?
She's in Iraq.
She's an embed.
In bed with the Iraqi military.
And she traipse around with them.
And then brags on them.
While ignoring events that don't fit her predetermined framework.
Like what MIDDLE EAST MONITOR reported:
The victim is then placed at gunpoint by two other unarmed men in front of a row of houses, before about a dozen Shia jihadists fighting with the PMF and Iraqi soldiers open fire and gun them down in cold blood.
“Sadly, we have become accustomed to seeing such violence against people who are likely civilians,” Ahmad Al-Mahmoud, an analyst with the London-based Iraq monitoring group Foreign Relations Bureau of Iraq (FRB), told MEMO. “Even if they are ISIS, they should be tried in transparent and just courts, not shot dead in the middle of the street,” Al-Mahmoud said, using another acronym for the [Islamic State] extremist organisation.
Didn't fit with her bragging on the unit she was embedded with.
So she ignored it.
And all these years later, we're stuck with yet another western journalist who goes to Iraq and completely ignores the Iraqi people to write war porn yet again.
She's so bad, it may not be fair to call her the new Judith Miller.
It's highly possible that even Judith had more integrity than Rukmini.
