The news is out: [The former head of the US Central Intelligence Agency labelled the assassination of a top Iranian nuclear scientist Friday a “criminal” act that risks inflaming conflict in the region.
John Brennan said he did not know who was to blame for the murder of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, as Tehran pointed its finger at Israel.
“This was a criminal act & highly reckless. It risks lethal retaliation & a new round of regional conflict,” Brennan said in a series of tweets.
“I do not know whether a foreign government authorized or carried out the murder of Fakhrizadeh,” he said.
“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.”]
I am not alone in thinking terrorism is terrorism no matter which side it’s from. Imagine, like I wrote earlier, if a gang of terrorists murdered anyone in the US or Israhell.
