​CNN ​is being sued by two EMTs who say  CNN foreign ​correspondent Arwa Damon ​bit them​ ​in a drunken rage outside the US Embassy​ in Baghdad​, reports NyPo.

Arwa Damon
According to the lawsuit, Damon, 36, bit EMT​​s Tracy Lamar and Charles Simons before threatening them, saying she was a “major reporter for CNN.”

The suit claims CNN knew Damon had a history of drunken and abusive behavior, and had a penchant for violence, even when sober.

The EMTs are each suing for $1 million.

She sounds like a possible CIA embed at CNN, to me.

The CNN web site reports:
In April and October 2012, Damon was part of a team winning multiple awards for their coverage of the Arab Spring. She won an Emmy for Outstanding Live Coverage of a Current News Story, as well as a Peabody Award for “CNN’s reporting of the Arab Spring including Worldwide Coverage: Egypt –Wave of Discontent and Uprising in Libya”. 
In 2011, she reported from Cairo on the Egyptian uprising against President Mubarak and from Libya on the protests against Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi...Damon also covered the 2010 Iraq elections, the Red Shirt anti-government protests held in Thailand in 2010 and the Philippine elections...she also chronicled the U.S. Army's battle in Najaf against the Mehdi Army and the battles to retake Samarra and Fallujah.
Damon graduated with honors from Skidmore College in New York with a double major in French and Biology and a minor in International affairs. She was born in Boston, Massachusetts but spent most of her childhood in Morocco and Turkey. She is fluent in Arabic, French and Turkish.
