During the first Gulf War, Americans bombed a Chemical Arms Site, while CNN's Peter Arnett called it a baby formula factory. Why? Because it had a hastily painted sign (in English) that said so, and the Iraqi's took him there, and told him it was. The U.S. and UN military asked why a milk factory had barbed wire, a military garrison with guards, and multiple sources claimed it was used for biological or chemical weapons production? No matter who is right, the fact that Arnett did not offer that context/counter-balance, proves they were FakeNews: more interested in regurgitating Iraqi claims, than sharing the American ones.
