Rhodes: Death of Iranian General ‘A Really Frightening Moment’

January 3, 2020

Ben Rhodes, the former national security aide to President Barack Obama who helped negotiate the Iran nuclear deal, worried on Thursday evening that the U.S. assassination of Iranian terror general Qassem Soleimani on Thursday would spark retaliation, calling it a “frightening moment.”

Soleimani led the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds Force. He was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of U.S. soldiers in Iraq, and directed Iran’s foreign military adventures, including terrorism. He was killed days after the Iranian-backed attack on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad.

“Agree – no question Soleimani has a lot of blood on his hands,” Rhodes tweeted. “But this is a really frightening moment. Iran will respond and likely in various places. Thinking of all US personnel in the region right now.”

No, he’s not. He’s thinking of how this can be spun against President Trump, who left Rhodes in a state of shock with his stunning 2016 election victory over Hillary Clinton.
