New York Times journalist Farnaz Fassihi offered what some of her critics described as a “eulogy” to killed Iranian terrorist leader Qasem Suleimani after she posted a video of him reciting poetry.
“Rare personal video of Gen. Suleimani reciting poetry shared by a source in #Iran. About friends departing & him being left behind,” tweeted Fassihi alongside a video of Suleimani.

Given that Suleimani was responsible for the deaths of innumerable American citizens as well as orchestrating “a campaign of chaos against the United States around the world,” some questioned the tone of Fassihi’s response.
“Thoughts and prayers to you and your family at this time of sorrow,” quipped one respondent.
