After previously mourning the death of ISIS dirtbag Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, “journalists” at Jeff Bezos’ Washington Post are now weeping for “revered military leader” Qassem Soleimani after President Trump ordered his killing as a response to “imminent threats” to American lives.

On Twitter yesterday, the publication posted an article about Soleimani’s death and wrote, “Breaking news: Airstrike at Baghdad airport kills Iran’s most revered military leader, Qasem Soleimani, Iraqi state television reports.”

Many on Twitter were quick to criticize the Post.

Congressman Mark Walker wrote, Not exactly @washingtonpost. He was a terrorist at the top of a terrorist organization and was in Iraq encouraging violence against US troops. He was a major force behind the death of US soldiers and the displacement of 1000s of Syrian refugees. The world is safer with him gone”

Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk wrote, “First it was “Austere religious scholar” now it it’s “revered military leader”from the Washington Post Soleimani was a murderous maniac and the world is a better place with him dead.”

The Daily Caller even gave the Post its condolences, writing, “so sorry for your loss.”

 

The Washington Post tweet harkens back memories of its disgraceful obituary headline for former ISIS leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, which called the murderous terrorist an “austere religious scholar.”

The original headline named Baghdadi the “Islamic State’s terrorist-in chief.” Then, it switched to “austere religious scholar at the helm of Islamic State.” And finally, after receiving much criticism, the Post changed its headline, yet again, calling the terrorist an “extremist leader.”

Soleimani led the Quds Force for the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds (IRGC) which supported terrorist proxies in the Middle East.

The State Department–as Fox News reporter Lucas Tomlinson points out–says Iran was responsible for the deaths of 608 U.S. troops in Iraq.

“Qasem Soleimani led all Iranian and Iranian-backed forces in those operations,” Tomlinson wrote on Twitter. “17% of U.S. troops killed in Iraq from 2003 to 2011 orchestrated by Iran, State Dept. says”

Former U.S. Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno, told Fox News in 2015 that Soleimani was responsible for “killing many Americans.” “In fact,” Odierno said, “I would say the last two years I was [in the Middle East], the majority of our casualties came from his surrogates, not Sunni or Al Qaeda.”

Question for The Washington Post: Why don’t you ask the families of the 608 American troops killed by Soleimani if he was a “revered military leader?”
