“One day they may name a street after President Trump in Tehran. Why? Because Trump just ordered the assassination of possibly the dumbest man in Iran and the most overrated strategist in the Middle East: Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani,” wrote vaunted New York Times opinion columnist Thomas Friedman.
Friedman, a three-time Pulitzer Prize winner who was labeled a “Liberal Fascist” by the National Review and whose views are often said to fit a moderate Democrat perspective, went deeply against the grain Friday of other liberal viewpoints being expressed after the administration ordered a drone strike on Iranian terror potentate Soleimani (Suleimani, Soleimani … same guy, different elocution).
The Friedman editorial was entitled, “Trump Kills Iran’s Most Overrated Warrior,” the subtitle, “Suleimani pushed his country to build an empire, but drove it into the ground instead.”
