John Brennan Remains Upset at Killing of Number One Iranian Nuclear Scientist – By Julio Rosas (Townhall) / Nov 30 2020
Former CIA Director John Brennan continued to express his opposition to the killing of Iran’s top nuclear scientist during his interview with CNN on Monday, saying it violated “standards of international behavior.”
Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was shot and killed along with his bodyguards as they traveled in Absard, roughly 40 miles east of Tehran. According to U.S. and Israeli officials, he was the “driving force behind…Iran’s secretive nuclear weapons program,” according to the New York Times.
Brennan tweeted on Friday the killing was a “criminal act & highly reckless. It risks lethal retaliation & a new round of regional conflict.”
This was a criminal act & highly reckless. It risks lethal retaliation & a new round of regional conflict.
Iranian leaders would be wise to wait for the return of responsible American leadership on the global stage & to resist the urge to respond against perceived culprits. https://t.co/0uZhyBTM3S
