Mental diarrhea: US VP Pence links assassinated Iranian general to 9/11


Qasem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, a deputy commander of an Iraqi Shia militia group, were killed by a US drone attack near Baghdad International Airport early on Friday, 3 January.

Hours after the US strike that claimed the life of Iranian Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani, US Vice President Mike Pence stirred a hornet’s nest by tweeted what kind of “an evil man” the slain IRGC officer allegedly was.

As Pence tweeted what he considered to be the various alleged misdeeds of Soleimani, “who was responsible for killing thousands of Americans”, the US VP also alleged that the assassinated Iranian officer had provided assistance to some of the perpetrators of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks against the United States.

​It appears, however, that most social media users would have none of the VP’s claims, widely challenging Pence and his beliefs.
