NBC News correspondent reports the U.S. turned Soleimani into ‘a martyr, if not a saint.’
NBC’s Richard Engel: “People not only going out in the streets in millions, as Ali was describing, he was there, but throwing articles of their own clothing up onto the coffin so attendants could rub it on the coffin so they would have some sort of memento of an object that was close to Qasem Soleimani’s body. They turned him into a martyr, if not a saint. We’re seeing now all around the region Shiite groups, allies of Iran speaking in one voice, and that is that U.S. Troops have to leave the region, should be forced out of the region starting with Iraq.”

Twitter jumps on:
Iranians culture of martyrdom is designed to intimidate anyone thinking of responding to Iranian aggression. Engels helps reinforce their bluffs.

And not surprisingly, our media seems delighted to be pushing this narrative.

Only to the MSM.

Absolutely not true. Amazing that these reporters are willing to run interference for hostile totalitarian regimes

We did the same thing by killing Bin Laden. Big deal.

Keep that propaganda coming

Yes I’m perfectly well aware that he’s become a martyr to journalists because the orange bad man killed him. And I know journalists are so shallow you can’t see what a fascist regime forces its people to do. But maybe they could try.

Pro Iranian propaganda playing on liberal media in America is happening more and more and it’s despicable.

It’s possible to not support trump and also not side with Iran and terrorists.
Can see why trust in media is at new lows.

To who? The wacky brainwashed “ death to America” people? Give me a break! There’s no reasoning with crazy.

I guess they’re just OK with these people running around injuring and killing Americans.

Trump’s super power is getting the alt-left media/Democrats to reveal they are traitors to the USA.
