This has been posted several times. The first was rightly killed by user flags. We're killing (or burying) the reposts, first as dupes and also as inappropriate for HN. The story is (a) off-topic, (b) designed for outrage, (c) if it isn't propaganda, would require careful sourcing to show it—something that HN is the wrong place for.

Well, the source is USA Today. It's not top-of-the-line as a reputable news source, but it's not just some propaganda rag...

Normal sourcing rules go out the window when certain kinds of events are ongoing, and this is one of them. I will be very surprised if the story turns out to be true. Even if it is, though, it's unambiguously off-topic here.
