BEASTMODE: Sen. Cotton Slams AP: 'Surely These Intrepid Reporters Knew Who Their Neighbors Were'

Sen. Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) slammed the Associated Press on Monday for sharing office space with Hamas in a Gaza tower.

"Why is the Associated Press sharing a building with Hamas?" Cotton asked on the Senate floor. "Surely these intrepid reporters knew who their neighbors were."

Israeli forces destroyed the tower in Gaza on Saturday with an airstrike after giving an hour warning to evacuate the building before the attack. The Israeli military said the building was a target because it contained several assets of Hamas intelligence agencies. In a statement, the Associated Press said it had "no indication" Hamas officials were sharing the building with its reporters.
