Iranís al-Quds Force Chief Killed; U.S. Foreign Policy Establishment Hardest Hit
PJmedia ^ | 01/02/2020 | Robert Spencer

Posted on 01/03/2020 4:27:46 PM PST by LucienCA13

Demonstrating that it learned nothing from the backlash after it called ISIS top dog Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi an “austere religious scholar,” the Washington Post called Qasem Soleimani, who was killed today in a U.S. airstrike in Baghdad, Iran’s “most revered military leader.” If Soleimani, who as head of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps' Quds Force was responsible for aiding numerous jihad terror activities worldwide, was revered at all, it was more by the Obama foreign policy team that saw him and his government as a valid partner for negotiations than by anyone in Iran. And tonight, the Obama team and the entire U.S. foreign policy establishment sees all of its core claims and principles proven false, and its recommendations rightly disregarded.

Not that they’ve noticed. They’re still asserting those principles as valid, and as a rebuke to Trump’s action in ordering this strike. Obama’s foreign policy adviser Ben Rhodes, who boasted about how the Obama administration lied to sell the disastrous Iran nuclear deal, was full of consternation and indignation after the news broke of Soleimani’s death. He tweeted that “this is a really frightening moment. Iran will respond and likely in various places.”

You’re welcome. Dr. Jack Wheeler wrote an excellent Half-Full Report at tothepointnews.com today and said this was a must read article. I’d post Dr. Wheeler’s piece too, but it’s there’s a pay wall.

Iran’s al-Quds Force Chief Killed; U.S. Foreign Policy Establishment Hardest Hit

Always remember that all who pledged allegiance to the Fraud never called the capital of Israel Jerusalem, only "al-Quds".

Thanks for that! I had to look it up ... Al-Quds (Arabic: القدس‎) is the Arabic name for the city of Jerusalem, literally meaning "The Holy One" (quds = holy). Figures, just 0 and his lapdogs used the term Daesh. VJ, Huma and the lot, all in for Islam and for Iran in particular.

The US foreign policy establishment has to get Qatar's natural gas pipeline through Iraq and Syria to the Mediterranean built or Qatar is going to demand their under-the-table contributions back. Trump is systematically removing every reason for the US to keep a long-term presence in Syria and Iraq, and he hasn't done a thing to remove the biggest pipeline obstacle Assad. Had Hillary won in 2016 pipeline construction would be well underway, with huge payoffs to all participants. Now the Russians are going to get theirs done first, and grab all of the profits.

You can figure out what these people want to do to "Russian Lover" Trump about now.

And then there was the Fraud’s CIA Director John Brennan, who had FOUR YEARS to weaponize against us.

From January 2013:

“One of Brennan’s most noticed action in the White House was when he referred to Jerusalem, Israel using the Arabic word al Quds.”

Pelosi is distraught when foreign allies are killed. It interferes with her plans.

most revered military leader
I don't see the word "most" in either the article or the tweet.
Must have changed it as multiple tweets from 22 hrs ago show "most".
