(Liberty Bell) – Right now, the world is mourning, with sackcloth and ashes, the great terrorist mastermind, Qassem Soleimani, who was catapulted to the status of progressive hero by virtue of the fact that he was taken out by Donald J. Trump.
President Trump has one incredible superpower: he can make the Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) defend anything simply by speaking out against it (or destroying it with a drone, whatever the case may be.)
But it wasn’t that long ago that Soleimani was, as the New York Post wrote in 2014, the “shadowy figure who planned Benghazi.”
The Democrats have to cause a fuss over the elimination of this key American enemy because they’re the enemies of our country and nothing proves that more than Benghazi.
The Obama administration was dirty and crooked and working with Iran, sending them pallets of cash and blaming the actions of mastermind terrorists on YouTube videos.
From the Post in 2014:
He’s the Wizard of Oz of Iranian terror, the most dreaded and most effective terrorist alive.
He is Qassem Suleymani, the head of the Quds Force, an organization that acts as a combination CIA and Green Berets for Iran, and a man who has orchestrated a campaign of chaos against the United States around the world.
Today, the Obama Administration has allied itself with Suleymani to fight the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.
In this case, Iran’s goals — a Shi’ite-friendly government in Iraq — coincides with America’s hope that the country doesn’t fall apart.
But don’t be fooled: It’s only a partnership of convenience, and one that won’t last.
“Iran wants chaos. They want to generate anti-American anger, radicalize the rebels, and maintain a climate of war,” a former Iranian intelligence chief for Western Europe told me. “They are very serious about this. They want to damage the reputation of the United States as a freedom-loving country in the eyes of the Arabs.”
Suleymani has orchestrated attacks in everywhere from Lebanon to Thailand. The US Department of Justice accuses him of trying to hire a Mexican drug cartel to blow up the Saudi Ambassador to the United States while he was in Washington, DC.
My sources, meanwhile, say Suleymani was involved in an even more direct attack on the US — the killing of Ambassador Christopher Stevens in Benghazi, Libya.
“In Libya, Iran wanted to block US influence, which they saw as a threat,” the intelligence chief said. “They saw the uprising against Khadafy — and the Arab Spring more generally — as an opportunity to accomplish this.”
