State TV on Friday cited sources confirming the death of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh

An Iranian scientist dubbed the leader of Tehran’s military nuclear program until it was ended in the early 2000s was killed in a shooting on Friday -- with the Iranian regime alleging involvement by Israel.
State TV on Friday cited sources confirming the death of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh and said it would offer more information shortly.

The semiofficial Fars news agency reported that he was killed in an attack in Absard, to the east of Tehran. It said witnesses heard the sound of an explosion and then machine gun fire, according to reports. The attack targeted a car that Fakhrizadeh was in, the agency said.

I do not know whether a foreign government authorized or carried out the the murder of Fakhrizadeh. Such an act of state-sponsored terrorism would be a flagrant violation of international law & encourage more governments to carry out lethal attacks against foreign officials.

These assassinations are far different than strikes against terrorist leaders & operatives of groups like al-Qaida & Islamic State, which are not sovereign states. As illegitimate combatants under international law, they can be targeted in order to stop deadly terrorist attacks.

The former director of the CIA is outraged by the assassination of the top nuke engineer of one of the most volatile threats to American interest. Why is that?

The traitor told Iran they would be better off to wait for Biden to become President before they start their war with Israel.


Has Biden picked him to run the CIA yet?
