Brennan: Killing of Iranian Scientist Violates ‘Standards of International Behavior’

December 1, 2020

Monday on CNN’s Newsroom, former CIA Director and Deep State traitor John Brennan continued to complain about the recent assassination of Iranian scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, which undoubtedly saved hundreds of thousands of lives at the hands of a nuclear-weaponized Iran, claiming there need “to be standards of international behavior to exclude assassinations.”

Asked why he called the assassination reckless, Brennan replied, “Well, I think we’ve seen that Iran is going to feel obliged as it has in the past to carry out a retaliatory strike. Especially in a presidential transition when we have to be sure this administration doesn’t do anything to undermine the next administration’s approach to these very challenging issues. Therefore I believe there needs to be standards of international behavior to exclude assassinations. So I believe it’s reckless because, again, it can provoke an Iranian response that could escalate then into not just heightened regional tension but also possible confrontation.”

“Provoke” Iran? Surely Brennan knows Iran has been a virulent enemy of the United States and Israel since the Islamic fundamentalist takeover in 1979. Since then, it has been responsible for more American deaths than any state enemy. The regime there regularly leads chants of “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” and foments terrorism against Western targets around the world. And we’re not supposed to “provoke” them? The mullahs are lucky we haven’t assassinated all of them, for which the Iranian people would be grateful.

“I don’t know who was responsible for this assassination,” Brennan continued to whine in defense of the Iranian terror state. “But again, I do believe that this is something that Western Democracies, as well as countries around the globe, should not engage in an assassination. So, whether or not the Trump administration was aware of it in advance or provided some type of support, I am not aware. But this is something that should be condemned by the international community. If the Iranians carried out an attack like this against an Israeli scientist inside of Israel, there would be condemnation. So I think this goes way beyond what can be and should be expected of countries in this day and age.”

The moral equivalence in his example about Iran killing an Israeli scientist is grotesque. Israel is a light to the world in many ways; the Iranian regime is an evil gang of terrorists.
