Awww, would you look at that? CNN is trying to pretend they didn't know the freelance photojournalist they had on the ground WITH HAMAS ON OCTOBER 7 was you know, actually on the ground with terrorists during a terror attack. We also like how they try throwing in how he's worked with Israeli outlets to somehow prove he's not a bad guy in all of this so THEY'RE not a bad guy in all of this.

2. Why didn’t he notify any Israeli or American security agencies ahead of the attack? Many American citizens were kidnapped or murdered.
3. Hamas is a terror group per the U.S. government. If he had… pic.twitter.com/ZlLoQ5f4JU
So many questions they have yet to answer, and they think releasing some lame-a*s statement and 'suspending' ties with this guy somehow makes everything ok.
As usual, they are wrong.
